It’s Labor Day weekend, marking the official end of summer which I know more than a few of you are happy about. Me? I’m not a fan of cold, or fall, or bulky itchy sweaters and socks or any of the things that go along with moving into a season where everything dies, but that’s why I live in South Florida where we just have hurricane season and not hurricane season. But hey, for all of you who enjoy that sort of thing, good for you and I hope you enjoy it. Me? You can find me sitting next to the pool or on the beach for the next two months thinking about how awesome it is to live somewhere you can wear sandals for about 11 months out of the year. Here is your Sunday night TV:
7:00pm: “60 Minutes” on CBS
“Dateline NBC” on NBC
8:00pm: “Big Brother” on CBS
“Jerseylicious” on Style. Second season premiere.
9:00pm: “Bridezillas” on WE
“The Great Food Truck Race” on Food Network
“Hoarding: Buried Alive” on TLC
“Leverage” on TNT. Third season summer finale. I kind of hate the split seasons thing a lot of channels are doing now. For one thing, it sucks if you’re actually following a show to have a “finale” halfway through and then have to wait months for the resolution. I don’t actually understand how it’s more effective, since there’s more than a few shows I’ve dropped from my viewing schedule over their break.
“Masterpiece!: Inspector Lewis, Series III: The Dead of Winter” on PBS
“Mel B: It’s a Scary World” on Style. One hour series premiere.
“Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch” on VH1. First season finale.
“Rubicon” on AMC
10:00pm: “Amazing Wedding Cakes” on WE
“Delocated!” on Adult Swim
“Freaky Eaters” on TLC. Series premiere. Yes, because the thing to do with abnormal eating behaviors and/or eating disorders is to display them as entertainment. Clearly. I understand that some people will say that raising awareness of eating disorders that don’t fit cleanly into the classifications of anorexia or bulimia is important, but somehow I doubt that TLC will be approaching the topic with respect and true concern for these individuals.

“Iron Chef America” on Food Network
