Season Premieres

Whats On TV Tonight? Friday September 28th, 2007:

Sorry people its slim pickins for television. I am thinking of making it a DVD night. Here is the line up for tonights season premieres:

Ghost Whisperer @ 8/7c on CBS- 3rd season premiere:

“Melinda Gordon communicates with earthbound spirits, ghosts who cling to the living because they have unfinished business that prevents them from moving beyond the familiar plane of existence that we call life. Inspired in part by the real-life communicator with spirits, GHOST WHISPERER explores the spiritual side of life and death as Melinda navigates among the dead and the living in her sometimes chilling, sometimes heart-rending and sometimes amusing attempts to act as an intermediary between the ghosts and those they haunt. “

*NO ! Thank You.*

Las Vegas @ 9/8c on NBC – 5th season premiere: TWO HOUR SPECIAL

“In the Season 5 Premiere they pick up exactly where they left off… Danny rushes back to find Delinda, Ed tries to stop the robbery, Mary leaves her dad shot in a parking lot, Sam is stuck in a box, and Mike is just trying to help and at the end we say good bye to one of the Montecito’s best won’t be coming back.”

*Maybe? I do like the cast of this show and since there isn’t too much else to choose from….*

Moonlight @ 9/8c on CBS – 1st series premiere:

“An `undead’ private investigator helps the living, instead of feeding on them, by using his acute vampire senses. His unending ordeal is made more complicated by his attraction to an ambitious reporter and by his bloodsucking bride who forever changed his life 60 years ago with one bite.”

*Nope. Not for me.

 

Numb3rs @ 10/9c on CBS – 4th season premiere:

“a drama about an FBI agent who recruits his mathematical-genius brother to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles. The two brothers take on the most confounding criminal cases from a very distinctive perspective. Inspired by actual events, the series depicts how the confluence of police work and mathematics provides unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing criminal questions.”

*Okay. Okay. This I might watch. If I can’t find a good movie.

Kitchen Nightmares

Yeah…. Um…. after watching Kitchen Nightmares Wednesday night, I don’t think I will ever be able to eat out in a restaurant ever again. At least NOT until AFTER its been inspected, and revamped by Gordon Ramsey. It was like watching all my worst fears come to life. Holy Hell. Why are places like this allowed to operate?

How about no. Now, don’t get me wrong. I am all for strong women.

Also on the team are Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster), the daughter of high-powered diplomats who recently joined the team and must prove her worth to Hotchner and her co-workers; Special Agent Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore), an expert on obsessional crimes; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “JJ” Jareau (AJ Cook), a confident young agent who acts as the unit liaison for the team, and Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness), a computer wizard who helps research the cases. Each member brings his or her own area of expertise to the table as they pinpoint predators’ motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.”

Season Premieres & Season Finales

WHAT’S ON TV TONIGHT??

Here is a quick run down of things to choose from or avoid.

America’s Next Top Model (The CW) 9th Season Premiere @ 8pm

Who doesn’t love this show? Me. I’ll pass. Thanks. I don’t need to feel any worse about myself image while watching rooms full of size 0’s with perfect hair and skin being told they aren’t ‘good enough’. How about… No.

Back To You, (Fox) 1st Series Premiere @ 9pm

a new situation comedy starring two Emmy winners, and sitcom veterans, Kelsey Grammer playing the role of Chuck Darling, and Patricia Heaton as Kelly Carr. These two have teamed up to play big time news anchors that have to appear as if they get along when the cameras are rolling, but the second there is a commercial break it is nothing but hostile tension, spewing venom, and words flying out of their mouths in fits of fury. Oh, and did I mention not only do they have to work together but that they are also divorced?

The show was created, written and executive-produced by Steven Levitan (”Just Shoot Me!” , ”Frasier”, “Wings” just to name a few) and Christopher Lloyd II (”Frasier”, ”The Golden Girls”) also sitcom legends.

My only concern with the show is that Kelsey Grammer may not be able to shake the Frasier image. I wonder if he will be able to make this new role believable to us viewers? I don’t know if I can buy into Kelsey being some womanizing self centered asshat. I have no fears concerning Patricia Heaton, she is a gem.

* However, I will be watching this.


Kid Nation (CBS) Series Premiere @ 8pm

40 Kids have 40 days to build a brave new world without adults to help or hinder their efforts. Can they do it? These Kids, ages 8-15, will turn a ghost town into their new home. They will cook their own meals, clean their own outhouses, haul their own water and even run their own businesses including the old town saloon (root beer only). Through it all, they’ll cope with regular childhood emotions and situations: homesickness, peer pressure and the urge to break every rule they’ve ever known.

Um…maybe? I am a little concerned in a Lord Of The Flies-esq sort of way. But, my curiosity always gets the best of me.

*I think its worth checking out.

‘Til Death’ (Fox) 2nd season premiere @ 8:30pm

A comedy about long-married couple Eddie (Brad Garrett) and Joy Stark (Joely Fisher), who are closing in on day 9,000 of their marriage and have the battle scars to prove it. Their new next-door neighbors are young newlyweds Steph (Kat Foster) and Jeff Woodcock (Eddie Kaye Thomas) – idealistic, passionate, adorable and married for a matter of days. It’s a show about new marriage versus old marriage, about keeping the romance alive – or at least staying together so you have someone to drive you to the hospital for your operations.

*My son loves this show. Well, he loves Brad Garret. So, I will be watching this (against my own better judgment).


Gossip Girl (The CW) 1st Series Premiere @ 9pm

Filmed in New York and based on the popular series of young-adult novels by Cecily von Ziegesar, “Gossip Girl”. No one knows Gossip Girl’s identity, but everyone in this exclusive and complicated vicious circle relies on her website and text messages for the latest scoop. They all live for gossip and scandal — along with fashion, shopping and partying in Manhattan’s trendiest hot spots. This is a world you have to be born into, full of wealth, and power.

*I am quite undecided on watching this show. But, as a self proclaimed TV Junkie, I feel it is my duty to give all new shows at least ONE shot…. to lure me in or loose me forever.


Kitchen Nightmares’ (Fox) Series Premiere @ 9pm

A reality series following chef Gordon Ramsay’s attempts to turn around troubled restaurants. Based on the popular British show.

** HELLZ YES**

I have been waiting for this one all summer long. I love Hells Kitchen. I love Gordon. I am all about this one!


Last Comic Standing (NBC) 5th Season Finale @ 9pm

This season has been pretty good. There was a much stronger focus placed on the female comedians. And YES, no big surprise to me, women, can be VERY funny. This show certainly helped me get through the drought that is summer TV.

K Ville

kville_l.jpg

K – Ville Monday Nights 9/8C On Fox.

“A heroic police drama set – and filmed – in New Orleans. Two years after Katrina, parts of the city are still in chaos, but hope has emerged. Battling an upsurge of violence, understaffing of police forces and a lack of crime labs and other facilities, the cops who remain in the New Orleans Police Department have courage to burn and a passion to reclaim and rebuild their city.”

The 1st Season premiered last night. Did anyone else watch this besides me? While it was no NYPD Blue, I really enjoyed Anthony Anderson‘s (who plays the roll of Marlin Boulet) performance. The opening scene completely grabbed me. I was sucked in before the first commercial. I watched the entire episode without wondering “is there anything else on.”

I haven’t decided weather or not this show will be on my MUST SEE TV list this year, but it sure beats the hell out of watching Wife Swap. ( I will never understand that show.) I will certainly tune in again next week.

Tell me what did you think of K-Ville?
