TV TUESDAY YO
|1. The Biggest Loser|
NBC 8 PM: "The contestants swap trainers for a week; the contestants search for weight plates in a giant mud pit." Oh man, I'd totally win that competition! I spent so much time as a youngster searching for weight plates in a giant mud pit. I would hope that my skills haven't atrophied.
ABC 9 PM: A steadily-declining viewership (just over four million people watched the last episode) probably means that the eight episodes of this show that have been produced will be all that we get. Here's hoping it has a good pay-off.
ABC 8:30: Pretty much everyone I've talked to has good things to say about this sitcom, but then, pretty much everyone acknowledges that it also has an awful title. The first few episodes of this season have likewise been terrible, ratings-wise, but have garnered some exceptionally good reviews. That's kind of surprising, considering that its lead-in, Last Man Standing, gets pretty great ratings.
Fox 9 PM: "When Jess learns that injured Nick doesn't have insurance, she brings him to her friend -- who is a gynecologist." Wacky hijinks no doubt ensue! Preceded by new episodes of Raising Hope and I Hate My Teenage Daughter.
Fox 9:30 PM: "When Oz sells the company to a corporate conglomerate, the brash head of the business and her bad-tempered assistant turn the office upside down." In one of the weirdest resurrection stories in recent television history, Breaking In was actually cancelled, then brought back for a second season as a mid-season replacement, and that second season premieres tonight.
FX 10 PM: "A murder forces Raylan to confront his past mistakes; Boyd grapples with Harlan's corrupt sheriff." One of the very few shows that I actually make time to watch each week. It's already episode eight, which means we only have a month or so left! Enjoy it while it lasts.
