MONDAY (10/18)

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo, 9 p.m.): "This Kandi is sweet---she journeys to Palm Springs to extend support to Kim, who's been invited to perform at a gay-circuit party." She wants to be there to laugh with Kim, not at her.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10 p.m.): "A woman battling cancer has a difficult time with treatments because of the condition of her home, which is covered with rat feces and hair." And she thought it was the chemo that was making her feel nauseated.
  • Weeds (Showtime, 10 p.m.): "The rest of the Botwin clan attempt to move some product at a children's concert." It takes a lot of green stuff for parents to pay for those shows ... and to sit through them, too.

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


MONDAY (9/27)
  • House (FOX, 8 p.m.):  “House and Cuddy confront the workplace ramifications of their relationship.” If the show tanks after this pairing, it’s all on them.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10 p.m.):  “A teacher takes her hoarding lifestyle into the classroom.” Some call that hoarding, others call that an oversized class.
  • Weeds (Showtime, 10 p.m.):  “To retrieve her kidnapped son, Nancy has a showdown with Cesar in a Skee-Ball museum.” The one with the most Chuck E. Cheese tickets in the end wins.

Preview Season 6 of Weeds

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Cable, Showtime, Video,

When returns to Showtime next month, fans will see the Botwins taking a new path - straight out of town.

Last summer’s deadly finale will result in new adventures for both the family and the comedy’s writers in Season 6.

“You have to reinvent the show. Now we’re about to send the characters fleeing on the road so you have the opportunity to make new characters, new personas,” executive producer Victoria Morrow explained at a Comic-Con panel. “[It’s] basically a decimation of all the Botwins’ work and a rebirth.”

Just like last year, we saw many first-timers named and a long list of cable acknowledgements (for both pay and basic channels). Thanks to expanded categories, we also saw a number of surprises (Flight of the Conchords, ) and overdue nominations (How I Met Your Mother, Big Love).

For the second year in a row, , with its 16 nominations, topped all drama programs. Meanwhile, 30 Rock broke comedy records with a whopping 22 noms. Overall, HBO was the most-nominated network with 99 mentions while NBC - yes, NBC - came in second.

This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris on Sept. 20 on CBS.
