Tuesday’s people. Seriously. Boo. Fucking boo. It’s great for catching up on what you might have missed on Sunday, though. The highlights:


— “90210” pn The CW.

— “The Biggest Loser” on NBC. I swear, sometimes while I’m working at night, I put this show on the background. It’s not a particularly great reality show, but it deals with its topic respectfully.

— “Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox. I thought this was only a summer show?

— “NCIS” on CBS. “NCIS,” after seven years, had its best ratings to date last week. It’s goddamn juggernaut for geriatrics, folks.

— “Shark Tank” on ABC. I honestly have no idea what this show is, nor any interest in looking it up.


— “Dancing With the Stars” moves to a new time on ABC.

— “Melrose Place,” on The CW, is looking down the barrel of the season’s second cancellation. “A Beautiful Life,” also on CW, was the first to get the can. I’d never even heard of it.

— “NCIS: Los Angeles” on CBS.

— “So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox, now competing directly against “Dancing With the Stars.” Here’s hoping they cannibalize one another to death.

— “Weird, True, and Freaky” has its second season premiere on the Animal Planet. Anybody care to shed some light on what this show is?


— “The Forgotten” on ABC.

— “The Good Wife” on CBS. It’s worth a second shot.

— “The Hills” has its fifth season premiere on MTV. I believe this is the show responsible for foisting Spencer and Heidi on humanity. May it die of neglect.

— “Sons of Anarchy” on FX.

— “The Jay Leno Show” has Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Good for it.
