This Week on TV (6/21-6/27)


MONDAY (6/21)
  • Saving Grace (TNT, 9pm):  “Grace shuts herself off completely from family and friends as a past tragic event continues to haunt her.” Those sex scenes in Crash are going to be hard to live down.
  • Behind the Music (VH1, 10pm):  “ is profiled using interviews and archival clips.” The unused footage will provide VH1 enough material for a whole new series: Rocky Love.
  • All Worked Up (truTV, 10pm):  “Observing people whose occupations involve communicating bad news, such as parking-ticket writers and tow-truck drivers, and the unpleasant reactions of the recipients.” The first episode will be entirely devoted to BP CEO Tony Hayward.

Friday Ratings: Daytime Emmys Fail to Shine

Even though the ceremony (barely) won its hour, the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards couldn’t muster enough primetime attention to topple a list of repeats. CBS wound up winning the viewers and ended up in a four-way tie in the demos.

This Week on TV (6/16-6/22)

Weeds' Mary Louise Parker

MONDAY (6/16)
  • The Bachelorette: DeAnna Tells All (ABC, 8pm):  “With six bachelors remaining, assesses the competition to win her heart so far, as do her six beaus.” Apparently revealing their boxers just hasn’t told her enough.
  • Weeds (Showtime, 10pm):  Season premiere. “Nancy, Andy and the boys, on the run after she set fire to their house, head to the beach and a ‘heartwarming family reunion’ with Judah’s grandmother.” Had I known this show was only 30-minutes long, I could have caught up a long time ago!
  • The Mole (ABC, 10pm):  “The contestants, clad in nothing but their underwear, hit the streets of Santiago, Chile and solicit clothing.” At this point, the show could probably use a little skin to ramp interest up a bit.
  • Secret Diary of a Call Girl (Showtime, 10:30pm):  Series premiere. “A high-priced London escort entertains a middle-aged client who enjoys role-playing and has a penchant for being down on the farm.” I think that summary says it all.
