Wednesday Ratings: A Nice Debut for Baby Borrowers

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

Weeds' Mary Louise Parker

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

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.

Wednesday Ratings: Celebrity Circus Lacks Dazzle

Even though it fared better than the quickly-cancelled Secret Talents of the Stars, Celebrity Circus didn’t do anything to brag about. NBC’s latest reality offering was outdone by a repeat during its hour. By night’s end, FOX was the winner in both the viewers and the demos.

This Week on TV (6/2-6/8)

Swingtown

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (6/2)
  • Instant Star (The N, 8pm EST): Season premiere. “Jude distracts herself with work on her third album in an attempt to avoid choosing between Jamie and Tommy.” Someone who chooses to work because of men? That’s unheard of!
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “Eleven of the bachelors find themselves backstage at Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, where they show off their ‘Ellen’ boxer shorts.” Okay, I’m confused. Who exactly are they trying to impress?
  • Legally Blonde the Musical: The Search for Elle Woods (MTV, 10pm): Series premiere. I do hope these girls realize there’s no at the end of this tunnel.
  • The Mole (ABC, 10pm): Series return. “The fifth season kicks off with one of the contestants ends up stranded alone on a deserted beach.” WARNING: Fake idol useless on this show.

Wednesday Ratings: FOX Dances Over CBS

While it wasn’t the evening’s stronger performer, last night’s episode of SYTYCD did well enough to get FOX past CBS.

This Week on TV (5/26-6/1)

Ben on Lost

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (5/26)
  • American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm):  “A tree climber tries to rise above a SWAT officer.” If tree boy gets a chance at the wall, his opponent will have no choice but to gas him.
  • Flavor of Love 3 (VH1, 9pm):  “The cast of Season 3 reunites.” I often wonder what a sober Brigitte Nielsen thinks about this.
  • Denise Richards: It’s Complicated (E!, 10pm):  “Denise goes on a blind date with a so-called regular guy.” When you’re getting alimony and child support from your celebrity ex, you can afford to go out with “regular guys”.
  • Living Lohan (E!, 10:30):  The title of the tonight’s premiere is “Mommy Will Fix It.” I hope she’s referring to Ali’s hair.
