Oh, television, you are a good companion. Thank you for always providing a good time and never talking back. After the jump, some shows to look forward to this week, from an HBO documentary about psychics, to Bethenny actually getting married, to a marathon of “Community.” Keep reading »
It might take you another day or so to recover from last night’s slightly traumatic episode of “True Blood.” But when you are ready to turn on the television again, there are lots of exciting programs waiting for you. (And, yes, I am starting a campaign to bring back the word ‘programs.’) For example, the season premieres of “Make It Or Break It” and “Intervention.” And a new sitcom, “Louie,” that looks like it could be on par with “The Office” and “How I Met Your Mother.” And if that doesn’t float your boat, perhaps I could interest you in another delicious serving of “Friday Night Lights?” After the jump, previews, teasers, and more.

A kind of annoying thing happens during the summer—TV offerings during the week become abysmal, while a zillion great shows start airing during the weekends. Case in point—I’m bored to tears of weekday shows like “Top Chef” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” and would be into the new series “Boston Med” if hospital dramas didn’t make my eyes glaze over at this point. In the meantime, both “Friday Night Lights” and “Party Down” are on Friday, which is just not the night I’m itching to stay in and curl up on the couch. Just another reason to be thankful for DVR?
After the jump, the shows I’m looking forward to this week. Keep reading »
There are only two words to describe last night’s season premiere of “True Blood“: Awe. Some. More Evan Rachel Wood as the Queen of Louisiana and Bill-Sookie-Eric sexiness? Well, you know what I’ll be up to every Sunday night for the next three months. But if you don’t have HBO, never fear. There is lots more exciting stuff happening on the small screen. After the jump, what else you need to watch this week, from new series “Double Exposure” and “Hot in Cleveland” to the finae of “The Tudors.” Keep reading »
Oh, television, you are a good companion. Thank you for always providing a good time and never talking back.

OK, yes, I forgot to give you your weekly dose of what to watch yesterday. But have no fear—that had to do with me being lazy on the beach and was not at all a commentary on the television options for the week. Most scripted dramas are over for the season, which means get ready for lots and lots of reality TV. In addition to my new television obsession—”The OCD Project” (Thursdays, 10 p.m., VH1)—we are pumped that Aziz Ansari is hosting Sunday night’s “MTV Movie Awards.” And from the state that brought you “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and “Jersey Shore” comes a new series called “Jersey Couture,” which premieres tonight on Oxygen. After the jump, details and previews.
