Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of May 10th 2010
I just realized that it’s been more than two months since I’ve gone to see a movie. Why? Because why pay $10+ to sit in a freezing theater when I can park it on the couch and watch all the amazingness that is my television. This week, like all weeks this month, I am super pumped for the final episodes of “Lost.” But there’s some other great stuff going down, too, like the season finale of “America’s Next Top Model,” fresh episodes of “Friday Night Lights” (finally!), and a “Simpsons”-themed dose of “Top Chef Masters.” After the jump, check out previews.
The Show: “Undateable”
Set Your DVR For: Tonight, 10 p.m. (EST), VH1
VH1 is all out of decades and years for “I Love _________,” so they’ve moved on with this new series, “Undateable.” The premise is the same—oodles of C-listers and comedians share the things guys do that make them repel the opposite sex. I’m looking forward to the cast of “Jersey Shore” giving their insight.
The Show: “America’s Next Top Model”
Set Your DVR For: Wednesday, 8 p.m. (EST), The CW
It’s the two-hour season finale of “ANTM,” and Angelea, Krista, Raina, and Alexandra are the ones left standing. Who will Andre Leon Tally crown the one with the least “dreckitude”? I’m rooting for Raina, even though her whole “Oh Mylanta” thing is exceptionally annoying.
The Show: “Top Chef Masters”
Set Your DVR For: Wednesday, 10 p.m. (EST), Bravo
The next episode of “Top Chef Masters” is gonna be awesome. The chefs will be cooking for “Simpsons” characters. And Matt Groening and Hank Azaria are judging. D’oh!
The Show: “Doctor Who”
Set Your DVR For: Saturday, 9 p.m. (EST), BBC America
Our newest television obsession? British sci-fi hit “Doctor Who.” Luckily, it’s airing Saturday nights on BBC America. So watch, even though their bowling team beat The Frisky’s the other week in the New York All Media Bowling League. Sigh.
The Show: “Friday Night Lights”
Set Your DVR For: Friday, 8 p.m. (EST), NBC
Last week’s season four premiere of “Friday Night Lights” totally snuck up on me. But boy am I glad I recorded it. This season, Coach Taylor has been moved to the uber-dilapidated East Dillon High and is coaching a team that isn’t looking to win a state championship; they’re just hoping to win a single game. With new cast members and a new scenario, the show feels totally revived. Not that it needed it.
