Kenny Powers is Shockingly Ubiquitous
It’s been a disappointing Sunday for me, as I seem to be coming down with a cold and mostly have been spending the day on my couch contemplating the amazing amount of work I have to do this week while watching the endless supply of bad movies that are available on TV. I lead an exciting life, let me tell you. Whatever you’ve heard about the wild and crazy antics of grad students, I can personally attest to it being absolutely true. Here’s your Sunday night TV:
7:00pm: Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC. Two hour eighth season premiere.
“Football Night in America” on NBC
7:30pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS. 43rd season premiere. Does this show have an audience under 60? No offense to the over 60’s out there, but I don’t think I actually know anyone who watches this show and since I’m a member of that extremely valuable and coveted 18-35 demographic, I’m wondering when it’s finally going to get taken off the air. Probably when Andy Rooney dies.
8:00pm: “Food Network Challenge: Disney Beauty and the Beast Cakes” on Food Network. These challenges are getting oddly specific, like Netflix categories.
“Jerseylicious” on Style
“Nature: Cuba: The Accidental Eden” on PBS. 28th Season premiere.
“The Simpsons” on Fox. 22nd season premiere. The cast of “Glee!” will be guest starring, in case gimicky stunt casting will get you to watch.
8:15pm: “Sunday Night Football: New York Giants at Miami Dolphins” on NBC
8:30pm: “The Amazing Race” on CBS. 90 minutes 17th season premiere.
“The Cleveland Show” on Fox. Second season premiere.
9:00pm: “Boardwalk Empire” on HBO
“Bridezillas” on WE
“Desperate Housewives” on ABC. Seventh season premiere.
“Dexter” on Showtime. Fifth season premiere.
“Family Guy” on Fox. One hour eighth season premiere.
“Hoarding: Buried Alive” on TLC
“Ice Road Truckers” on History
“Masterpiece!: Inspector Lewis, Series III: Falling Darkness” on PBS
“Mel B: It’s a Scary World” on Style
“Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters” on VH1
“Rubicon” on AMC
10:00pm: “Conversations with Ed Gordon: Steve Harvey” on BET
“Bored to Death” on HBO. Second season premiere. I didn’t realize this was coming back, I was under the impression that it hadn’t really gone anywhere. Anyone out there watching? What do you think of it?
“Delocated!” on Adult Swim. Second season finale.
“Fantasia for Real” on VH1
“The Glades” on A&E
“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on E!
“Mad Men” on AMC
“Sister Wives” on TLC. One hour series premiere. Show of hands, how many of you are going to be watching this train wreck? I want to say I won’t, but I know I’ll probably flip over during “Mad Men” commercial breaks.
“Snapped” on Oxygen
“Swamp People” on History
“Undercover Boss” on CBS. Second season premiere.
“Brothers and Sisters” on ABC. Fifth season premiere.
10:30pm: “Eastbound and Down” on HBO. Second season premiere. I swear, I see Kenny Powers on advertisements EVERYWHERE, and not just for “Eastbound and Down”, I’m pretty sure he’s in K-Swiss ads too. I didn’t realize the show (or, more likely, the character) was that popular.
“Lala’s Full Court Wedding” on VH1
“The Spin Crowd” on E!
11:30pm: “The Venture Brothers” on Adult Swim
12:00am: “Children’s Hospital” on Adult Swim
