Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of March 8th 2010
It’s a big week on the boob tube—that is, if your retinas aren’t totally burned out from watching the Oscars. This week, we’ve got the series premieres of “High Society” (Wednesday, 9:30 p.m., The CW), Tinsley Mortimer’s reality show, and the awesome new dating show “First Love, Second Chance” (Wednesday, 10 p.m., TV Land). And here are some other things you’ll want to watch, from Jason and Molly’s wedding to the return of “Celebrity Apprentice,” with the best cast ever. Oh, and a little “Gossip Girl” thrown in for fun.
The Show: “The Bachelor: Jason And Molly’s Wedding”
Set Your DVR For: Tonight, 8 p.m. (EST), ABC
It took 13 seasons for a “Bachelor” couple to get married. Tonight, it’ll be happening in front of your very eyes, for better or worse. “You still give me butterflies,” says Molly, as if they haven’t been together for more than a year.
The Show: “Gossip Girl”
Set Your DVR For: Tonight, 9 p.m. (EST), The CW
Woo-hoo! “Gossip Girl” is back after months on hiatus. Chuck’s mom is alive, Dan and Vanessa are together, as are Nate and Serena. Good times. Oh, and other CW-tastic shows “90210” and “Melrose Place” both also have fresh episodes airing this week, too.
The Show: “America’s Next Top Model”
Set Your DVR For: Wedensday, 8 p.m. (EST), The CW
Wait a second. Didn’t cycle 13 of “America’s Next Top Model” just end? Yeah, we don’t know how they’re making new seasons of the show so fast, but we’ll take it. I’m rooting for the mortician!
The Show: “Who Is Clark Rockefeller?”
Set Your DVR For: Saturday, 9 p.m. (EST), Lifetime
I confess that I love a good Lifetime movie on occasion. And there’s a really good one this weekend—the true crime case of a woman who married a Rockefeller only to find out he wasn’t really, that he was a total fraud, and that he’d abducted their daughter. Starring Will of “Will and Grace.” Holler!
The Show: “Celebrity Apprentice”
Set Your DVR For: Sunday, 9 p.m. (EST), NBC
I’ve been looking forward to this season of “Celebrity Apprentice” since, oh, the fall. Rod Blagojevich! Cyndi Lauper! Bret Michaels! Sinbad! Awesome!
