This Week 6/14 to 6/20



8pm – Lie to Me on FOX
9pm – The Good Guys on FOX
9pm – Pretty Little Liars (pilot, reairing) on ABC Family
9pm – Andrew Jackson: Good, Evil, and the Presidency on PBS

I am not caught up on Lie to Me. I have only seen 1/2 an episode of The Good Guys, which could be much worse than it is (point of interest: it is also airing on FX already). I haven’t watched the Pretty Little Liars pilot yet, but I confess I’m quite curious. And Andrew Jackson is just kind of a badass, so the documentary is worth noting.

8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family

8pm – TV’s Greatest Surprises: A Paley Center for Media Special on CBS
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance on FOX
10pm – Happy Town on ABC

This is the first episode of competition for this season of SYTYCD. I’m sort of worried about how this season is being handled – ten new dancers, ten familiar faces – so I guess we’ll see how it turns out. If nothing else, the dancing will still be phenomenal. As for the Paley Center special, it actually might be really interesting. The choice of Jeff Probst as host is unfortunate, but Paley Center hosts some quality discussions (see: clips for Bones and House on Hulu, for example).

8pm – World Music Awards on MNT
9pm – So You Think You Can Dance (results) on FOX
9pm – Moonlight on CW
9pm – Burn Notice on USA
10pm – Royal Pains on USA

If any of y’all are generally fans of vampire TV haven’t seen Moonlight, you should check it out. It’s only alright in terms of quality, but it does feature Alex O’Loughlin, Jason Dohring, and an excellent performance by Shannyn Sossamon, and the vampire lore of the show is original and actually pretty nifty.

10pm – Miami Medical on CBS


Nothing new is airing tonight. Although there is a rerun of one of the best episodes of Castle, “The Fifth Bullet,” airing at 10pm on ABC.

9pm – Leverage (2-hour season premiere!) on TNT
9pm – Scoundrels (series pilot!) on ABC
10pm – The Gates (series pilot!) on ABC

I’m actually a little terrified of ABC’s summer Sunday line-up, but I s’pose it deserves a shot as much as the next thing. But that’s not really important. What is important? LEVERAGE LEVERAGE LEVERAGE LEVERAGE LEVERAGE! (IAMSOEXCITED.)

The one other thing going on on television right now that I didn’t mention is this little event you may have heard of called The World Cup. You should check it out.

    I am right there with ya on Leverage. I’ve been counting down the days to the season premiere. Thank GOODNESS it’s here!

    Another show you might want to mention in Persons Unknown. It started last week and, in my opinion, has some promise to it.
