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


MONDAY (6/22)
  • Jon & Kate Plus Eight (TLC, 9pm):  Jon & Kate make some life-changing decisions. Well, Kate technically made the decision; Jon just didn’t want to argue.
  • Charm School (VH1, 9pm):  Season premiere. “Former contestants from VH1 reality shows work for charity (and a chance to win $100,000).” No good deed comes without incentives.
  • Make It or Break It (ABC Family, 9pm):  Series premiere. “In this drama focusing on the lives of teen gymnasts who strive to make it to the Olympics, new girl Emily Kmetko begins training alongside veterans who are both impressed with and threatened by her.” This could bring a whole new definition to the term “punch front.”
  • Run’s House (MTV, 10pm):  “The family rallies around JoJo after he’s charged with marijuana possession.” This whole time they had a connection within the home.

MONDAY (6/15)
  • Greek (ABC Family, 8pm):  Season finale. “Casey struggles with conflicting feelings she has for Max and Cappie.” Given how nauseating “Casey and Cappie” sounds, I’d think the obvious choice would be Max.
  • The Closer (TNT, 9pm):  “Brenda snoops into the abduction of a greedy financier being investigated for investment fraud, but she soon suspects that he may have staged the kidnapping.” Later, it’s discovered the investor was less than six degrees way from Kevin Bacon.
  • Raising the Bar (TNT, 10pm):  “Michelle then falls for a sightly cop who may be committing perjury.” So much for making him swear on the Bible before the first date.
  • Here Comes the Newlyweds (ABC, 10pm):  “The husbands try to guess what their wives think are their shortcomings when it comes to intimacy.” It’s not that they don’t already know—it’s just that they forgot.

FOX Sneaks in One Last Kitchen Nightmare

Gordon Ramsay; Kitchen NightmaresThe second season of the American version of began last September, and evidently finished up just last night. Though the show disappeared from the FOX schedule on November 20, it returned - briefly - for one last hurrah.

And for those of you who missed the Kitchen Nightmares finale, it’ll no doubt be reappearing on FOX’s reality channel, so never fear. The episode was touted as the last of the second season and the show does not reappear on the schedule this year, but there could be one unaired episode on the season. Some listings show this episode as the last, rather than the one touted as the last.

Make sense? Even if it doesn’t, this odd reappearance and disappearance is confusing enough. But just the same, ’s Kitchen Nightmares have ended this season. There are many more awaiting him in the next, however. FOX is even now casting for the third season of the show, which bodes well for Ramsay fans.

The show may be over for the year, but the chef still has a lot more reality left in him. Gordon Ramsay will only be missing from the FOX line up for two weeks, as he’s slated to return in the fifth season of . The premiere will air January 29th, and it’s unlikely this show will experience the same programming gap.

Raising the Bar

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


MONDAY (9/1)

Labor Day Marathons: The Closer (TNT), Beverly Hills, 90210 (SOAPnet), Scrubs (TV Land), Dirty Jobs (Discovery), My Wife and Kids (ABC Family), Star Trek: The Next Generation (Sci Fi), House of Payne (TBS), CSI (Spike TV), Anthony Bourdain (Travel), That ‘70s Show (FX)

  • Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm):  Season 2 premiere. “Summer in the Hamptons winds down as Serena and Nate carry on a cover-up scheme to make others think they’re dating.” A few choice pics sent to Gossip Girl should do the trick.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  Season 4 premiere. “Michael is in LA looking to even the score with Gretchen for Sara’s death.” I think Gretchen should really apologize for all of last season.
  • One Tree Hill (CW, 9pm):  Season 6 premiere. “Lucas’ chosen lady meets him at the airport, while Dan’s accident proves life-threatening.” Sorry. So not caring who picks these days.
  • Raising the Bar (TNT, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Idealistic public defender Jerry Kellerman (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) fights for a man he’s sure is innocent, but holding a court is a judge who loathes Kellerman.” Gosselaar’s new hair has been generating some passionate opinions.

TV Chef Brings London to L.A.

Gordon Ramsay, star of Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares (both on FOX, one also on the BBC) opened his new restaurant, The London, last week. The restaurant is the impetus behind the fourth season of Hell’s Kitchen - the winner of the show will become the senior sous-chef of the high-brow eatery.

Jeff Probst (host of Survivor), Khloe Kardashian and David Beckham were among the celebrity guests in attend is famously located near Las Vegas…so why didn’t Ramsay open up there? “I don’t want to play my card in Las Vegas. It’s materialistic. Here, it’s proper. I’m very happy to be here. Everything is in abundance in California.”

This season’s winner of Hell’s Kitchen will not only gain the coveted job, but a $250,000 annual salary to go along with it. The finale will air July 8…until then, the winner remains out of The London’s kitchen.

MONDAY (4/7)
  • Today (NBC, 10am):  Kathie Lee Gifford returns to morning TV this week.  And I thought the New Kids were getting old.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  New episode.  “Samantha has to move back into the apartment when she learns that she could be evicted for subletting it to Todd.”  The girlfriend you hate gets amnesia and you get to keep her apartment.  Todd has seriously been getting off easy so far.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 10pm):  “It’s an afternoon of tennis and tea for six of the ladies.”  I’ve seen what an afternoon of women’s tennis can look like on The Real Housewives of NYC.  This won’t end pretty.
  • Medium (NBC, 10pm):  “Rosanna Arquette stars as an older seductress linked to the brutal murders of two younger men.”  Maybe it’s best her relationship with Paul McCartney fizzled out.
