This Week 8/9 to 8/15

Tonight:
10pm – Rizzoli & Isles on TNT

Where did the rest of Monday night go? The Teen Choice Awards ate it. Way to be, FOX.

TUESDAY:
8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family
9pm – White Collar on USA
10pm – Covert Affairs on USA
10pm – Memphis Beat on TNT

I should really get around to actually seeing if I like Pretty Little Liars or Memphis Beat one of these days.

WEDNESDAY:
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance on FOX
9pm – Dark Blue on TNT

Okay, so I kinda screwed up on the whole Oh I’m Def Going To Review Dark Blue thing last week. But this week for sure!

THURSDAY:
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance (2-hour finale!) on FOX
9pm – Moonlight on the CW
9pm – Project Runway on Lifetime
9pm – Burn Notice on USA

FRIDAY:
9pm – Eureka on SyFy
10pm – Haven on SyFy

And you could also watch Night At the Museum on ABC at 8. Because it is awesome.

SATURDAY:

Nothing new is airing tonight. Watch Spike’s Star Wars marathon. Or USA’s House marathon (which includes the pilot at 8pm!). Or, you know, go out and do something. Whatever.

SUNDAY:
9pm – Leverage on TNT
9pm – Scoundrels on ABC
10pm – The Gates on ABC

Did I miss something? Whoops. This was done in kind of a hurry.

Enjoy your week!

This Week 8/2 to 8/8

So there’s this thing called “Shark Week” you may have heard of…

Tonight:
8pm – Lie to Me on FOX
9pm – The Good Guys on FOX
10pm – Rizzoli & Isles on TNT

TUESDAY:
8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family
9pm – Warehouse 13 on SyFy
9pm – White Collar on USA
10pm – Covert Affairs on USA
10pm – Memphis Beat on TNT

I do not watch Warehouse 13. But I mentioned it just so that I could share with y’all the whispered plan for a W13Eureka crossover.

WEDNESDAY:
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance (Top 4) on FOX
9pm – Dark Blue (2-hour season premiere!) on TNT

Is it just me, or is there something inherently silly about airing the movie Next twice in a row? Way to go, FX.

THURSDAY:
9pm – So You Think You Can Dance (results) on FOX
9pm – Moonlight on the CW
9pm – Project Runway on Lifetime
9pm – Burn Notice on USA

Wait, when did a new season of Project Runway start? (And, I ask as I do every week, why does everything air at 9pm on Thursday?)

FRIDAY:
9pm – Eureka on SyFy
10pm – Haven on SyFy

SATURDAY:
8pm – Persons Unknown on NBC

SUNDAY:
9pm – Rubicon on AMC
9pm – Leverage on TNT
9pm – Scoundrels on ABC
10pm – The Gates on ABC

I’m actually going to do stuff this week, I promise! And by “things” I mean I will, at the very least, be watching and reviewing Dark Blue. So excited for that show! I was terrified it was going to get cancelled after the first season but NO! SAVED! And now Tricia Helfer has joined the cast! Looking forward to the increased sexy awesome? Oh yes.

Also, going to look into Rubicon and catch up on Persons Unknown, Eureka, and Haven. That last one just because I want to give it another chance before giving up entirely. (Speaking of giving up entirely, folks may notice the absence of Rookie Blue from this week’s schedule. I watched five minutes of the pilot and wanted to die so that was the end of that.)

Enjoy your week.

The Glades: the crimes are boring, the lead is irritating, the secondary characters are boring, and the non-procedural part of the plot is like a Harlequin novel but without any sexiness. Sorry A&E but the truth is, this is just a big unhot mess of epic fail

This Week 7/19 to 7/25

Aw man, I was so good at things the beginning of last week we just knew it couldn’t carry over to the weekend/a more timely This Week.

…in my defense, I had a bummer of a cold and was basically just zombie-ing my way through daily necessities and then sleeping.

ANYWAY.

This is what’s up coming up:

Tonight:
8pm – Lie to Me on FOX
9pm – The Good Guys on FOX
10pm – Rizzoli & Isles on TNT

And FX is airing 27 Dresses. Again. I don’t know why they keep doing that. (I also don’t know why that movie has a crack-like grasp on my mind.)

TUESDAY:
8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family
9pm – White Collar on USA
10pm – Covert Affairs on USA
10pm – Memphis Beat on TNT

Shows that keep showing up on this schedule only because I haven’t seen them yet and intend to at some point, sorta: Pretty Little Liars and Memphis Beat.

WEDNESDAY:
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance on FOX

Anyone who can explain to me why HawthoRNe is airing on TBS (you know, the comedy network) wins a cookie.

THURSDAY:
9pm – Rookie Blue on ABC
9pm – So You Think You Can Dance (results) on FOX
9pm – Moonlight on the CW
9pm – Burn Notice on USA

Also airing, re-run of Glee “Mash-Up.”

FRIDAY:
10pm – Haven on SyFy

SATURDAY:
7pm – Buffy the Vampire Slayer on VH1
8pm – The Bridge on ABC
8pm – Persons Unknown on NBC

That is the original 1992 Buffy movie. It is hysterical and if you have ever seen Buffy the series (especially if you liked it), you should watch this movie. Also, I have no idea what The Bridge is, but it seems somewhat intriguing.

SUNDAY:
9pm – Leverage on TNT
9pm – Scoundrels on ABC
10pm – The Gates on ABC

I think that’s it for this week. No specific Melted Brain goals – just tuning back in to Haven, Covert Affairs, Rizzoli & Isles, and Persons Unknown and giving them some take-two consideration.

Enjoy your seven-day period!

This Week 7/12 to 7/18

I caught up on some stuff! Not a lot, but some!

Tonight:
8pm – Lie to Me on FOX
9pm – The Good Guys on FOX
10pm – Rizzoli & Isles (series pilot!) on TNT

TUESDAY:
8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family
9pm – White Collar (season premiere!) on USA
10pm – Cover Affairs (series pilot!) on USA
10pm – Memphis Beat on TNT

WEDNESDAY:
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance on FOX

THURSDAY:
9pm – Rookie Blue on ABC
9pm – So You Think You Can Dance (results) on FOX
9pm – Moonlight on the CW
9pm – Burn Notice on USA

FRIDAY:

Nothing new is airing.

SATURDAY:
8pm – Persons Unknown on NBC

SUNDAY:
9pm – Leverage on TNT
9pm – Scoundrels on ABC
10pm – The Gates on ABC

Goal for this week: watch and review the premieres of Rizzoli & Isles and Covert Affairs. I’d like to do a lot more. But I could realistically actually accomplish this. Anything more is just a bonus for everyone!

Enjoy your week!

This Week 6/28 to 7/4

SONOFABITCH I TOTALLY WROTE THIS ON TIME AND THEN IT DIDN’T PUBLISH. WORDPRESS WTF UP WITH YOU.

I wrote out this weeks schedule and realized it is an embarrassment of a) shows I haven’t seen yet, b) shows I am horrendously not-caught-up-on, and c) shows I am pretty sure will be horrific but that I am perversely drawn to nevertheless.

Anyway, some of this viewing might actually occur on schedule because the craziness that has been my life for weeks is taking a short break. So, if I am not catching up on all of the sleep I’ve lost in the last week (if we call 8 hours an expected amount of sleep per night, that would be +/- 42 lost hours in the past week) then television-related things will definitely happen.

Tonight:
8pm – Persons Unknown on NBC
9pm – Huge on ABC Family
9pm – Lie to Me on FOX
9pm – The Good Guys on FOX

Confession: I haven’t seen any of Persons Unknown yet. Nor have I seen an entire episode of The Good Guys. I do intend to remedy this.

TUESDAY:
8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family
10pm – Memphis Beat on TNT

Tuesday = Morbid Curiosity Day.

WEDNESDAY:
8pm – So You Think You Can Dance on FOX

Also, FX is playing The Italian Job at 8pm and 10:30pm. That is an awesomely fun movie – must see for Leverage fans.

THURSDAY:
9pm – Rookie Blue on ABC
9pm – Moonlight on the CW
9pm – So You Think You Can Dance (results) on FOX
9pm – Burn Notice on USA
10pm – Boston Med on ABC
10 & 10:30pm – The New Red Green Show on KBTC

“The New Red Green Show”? What is this shit?!

FRIDAY:
10pm – Miami Medical on CBS

SATURDAY:

ABC is airing two episodes of The Forgotten. Goddammit, I thought this show was dead!

SUNDAY:
9pm – Scoundrels on ABC
10pm – The Gates on ABC

Oh, yeah, and I hear there might be fireworks on TV somewhere for some reason…

This Week 6/14 to 6/20

REAL POSTS ARE COMING.

THIS IS JUST GETTING DONE FIRST SO *I* KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON.

Monday:
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.

TUESDAY:
8pm – Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family

WEDNESDAY:
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).

THURSDAY:
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.

FRIDAY:
10pm – Miami Medical on CBS

SATURDAY:

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.

SUNDAY:
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.
