What to Watch…June 23, 2008

June 23, 2008 by  

Monday! Monday! Monday! It’s back to work, and back to TV. I can’t say there’s a ton of compelling shows to check out tonight, but certainly enough to keep you busy. I’m really going to try to get in at least one episode on my Project: Supernatural quest, but I’ve been failing miserably so I’m not making any promises.

Ok, back to TV. Here’s a sampling of what’s on tonight.

American Gladiators | 8pm on NBC
American GladiatorsIn contests featuring two married couples, a wrestling coach tries to take down a financial adviser. In the ladies round, a sales rep battles a social worker. [GMMR: I like the obstacle courses but I find most of the contestants annoying with all their fake bravado.]

The Bachelorette | 8pm on ABC
The BacheloretteDeAnna meets her final four on their home courts when she meets their families. One dinner is disturbingly tense, another’s family warns her not to be a heartbreaker, and a third guy’s mother is surprisingly candid. [GMMR: I feel like I’ve heard nothing of this season so far. Are people watching? Is DeAnna and her men at least entertaining?]

I Love the New Millennium | 9pm & 10pm on VH1
VH1 - I Love the New Millenium An eight-part series featuring stars reminiscing about pop-culture phenomena of the new millennium begins with the year 2000. The second episode follows and looks waaaaay back to 2001.

Nashville Star | 9pm on NBC
Nashville StarThe 10 remaining acts are whittled down by one. [GMMR: There are definitely a few good people but I was kind of surprised by how many really weak entertainers made it on to the show. There are so many talented wannabe country singers that I thought the talent would be of a higher caliber.]

The Mole | 10pm on ABC
The MoleThe last eight contestants travel to the Andes Mountains for a grueling uphill climb carrying bricks of gold. [GMMR: Hopefully Paul will come down with laryngitis, because I’d really like to go a whole episode without hearing his annoying voice.]

    I am not watching the Bachelorette. I could care less about some lame chick. I liked the last bachelor but I actually only watch if they have just the right combo of Bachelor/ette and whiny peeps desperate to get married (why I don’t know???)

    Monday in the summer is a wasteland. (as are Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) I read a 600+ page book last week. I am going to B&N after work tonight. If there is a strike, I have no idea what I am goign to do other than cry.

    Will watch Letterman with Will Smith. Want to see if he talks about “Hancock”, I’m sure that’s why he is on. Always plugging…..

    I really don’t hate Paul as much as everyone else does… is there something wrong with me?

    Is there going to be live Mole blogging?

    I will once again be watching Nashville Star this week. I’m hoping that since they have a couple of weeks under their belts that they will be more confident on stage and perform better because they aren’t as nervous.

    The Bachelorette is great! The boys that are left are cuties. I can’t wait until the final rose ceremony!
