This Week on TV (5/3-5/9)

(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)


MONDAY (5/3)
  • Romantically Challenged (ABC, 9:30):  “Shawn romances Lisa’s friend Vanessa because her cable system carries the hockey championship games and his doesn’t.” She didn’t realize what type of scoring he had in mind.
  • Castle (ABC, 10pm):  “Beckett and Castle investigate the death of a big-name chef found frozen in a restaurant’s kitchen.” This would not be a good time to be The Naked Chef.
  • Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood (Oxygen, 10pm):  “Tori and Dean’s relationship is tested after uneasy rider Dean takes a spill on the motorcycle racetrack, landing him in the hospital. The accident leaves the couple conflicted—until Dean issues an apology.” The one who should apologize is the one the audience cares about the least.
  • NCIS (CBS, 8pm):  “The sister of a murder victim disappears, and Tony throws himself into the case as he’s drawn to the woman, though they have never met.” He later realized they both flew on Oceanic Flight 815.
  • Glee (FOX, 9pm):  “Sue is embarrassed by a video of her performing the Olivia Newton-John song ‘Physical.’” There aren’t many people who can pull that sweatband look off.
  • Sit Down, Shut Up (Comedy, 10pm):  Season finale. “Stuart botches his assignment to build a math lab and builds a meth lab instead.” It’s nice to see three years of watching finally paying off.


  • The Middle (ABC, 8:30pm):  “Sue steals a motivational magnet from a store and winds up feeling guilty about it.” Unfortunately, she can’t get off her lazy ass to return the thing.
  • Worst-Case Scenario (Discovery, 10:30pm):  “Vicious dogs pursue .” Next week, he escapes high-heeled hungry cougars.
  • Billy the Exterminator (A&E, 10:30pm):  “The crew must help a raccoon that’s stuck in a tree with a peanut-butter jar on it’s head.” Talk about your nutty scenarios…


  • FlashForward (ABC, 8pm):  “Demetri and Agent Banks hunt a killer whose targets are people who seemed to have escaped their fates.” Welcome to Final Destination 5.
  • The Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo, 10pm):  “LuAnn reenters the dating scene.” Her adventures will be documented in a Bravo spinoff Courting the Countess.
  • The Mentalist (CBS, 10pm):  “The team investigates when a math genius is shot to death by a clown.” He figured the odds of being killed by a Bozo were low.


FRIDAY (5/7)
  • Kitchen Nightmares (FOX, 9pm):  “Ramsay discovers something in the cooler that causes him to close the dinner restaurant during dinner service.” It was something that should only be seen in Hell’s kitchen.
  • Private Chefs of Beverly Hills (Food, 10pm):  “A no-carb gourmet dinner is made for a repeat client.” He keeps asking for more because he never feels satisfied.
  • Party Down (Starz, 10pm):  “Ron’s in the middle of a breakup, and being in the middle of catering an orgy isn’t helping matters.” He’d rather sit down with a pint of ice cream than serve other people whip cream.


SUNDAY (5/9)
  • 18 Kids and Counting (TLC, 8pm):  “After four months in the hospital, Josie Brooklyn Duggar finally comes home and is reunited with her parents and 18 siblings.” After witnessing the chaos, she crawled back to the hospital for some peace and quiet.
  • The Simpsons (FOX, 8pm):  “Moe writes a letter to Homer, Apu and Rev. Lovejoy and threatens to run off with one of their wives.” They drew straws for a chance to be that lucky husband.
  • Gene Simmons Family Jewels (A&E, 9:30pm):  “Gene competes on the TV quiz show ” Every incorrect answer resulted in Simmons sticking his tongue out at the children.
