What to Watch…Tuesday, July 8, 2008

July 8, 2008 by  

I hope you’re going to take it easy today, because you’re going to need your energy for the onslaught of game shows that will be making their way to your TV tonight.  Ok, maybe you won’t be participating, but that still doesn’t mean you won’t be exuding energy cheering everyone else on.

For me it’s all about WIPEOUT (you know I love it) and CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD (which I’m not loving, but will tonight when some of the cast of THE OFFICE shows up to do their thing).

Wipeout | 8pm on ABC | Series Premiere
Contestants include an ice-cream scooper, a nanny, a fitness model, a performance artist, a funeral-home counselor, a tae-kwon-do instructor, a registered nurse and a bartender. Obstacles featured: Donut Run, Crazy Beams, Pole Vault.

Celebrity Family Feud | 8pm on NBC | Series Premiere
Cast members from “The Office” and “American Gladiators” face off, while the “My Name Is Earl” cast is split up to battle each other.


The Secret Life of the American Teenager | 8pm on ABC Family
Grace struggles to decide whether she should forgive Jack, and Ricky and Adrian try to figure out their relationship. Meanwhile, Amy experiences morning sickness, and Ben hears a rumor about her.

I Survived a Japanese Gameshow | 9pm on ABC | Series Premiere
Contestants ride tricycles on a conveyor belt above a pool filled with icy water, with the belt’s speed being controlled by their stationary-bike-riding teammates (the faster they peddle, the slower the conveyor belt goes).

America’s Got Talent | 9pm on NBC
Week 4 of talent showcases, as judged by David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne.

Hell’s Kitchen | 9pm on Fox | Season Finale
As the fourth season closes, the two remaining contestants square off in their final dinner service before Chef Ramsay decides which of them will run his Los Angeles restaurant.

Deadliest Catch | 9pm on Discovery
The Northwestern collides with the ice pack; the Wizards departs with a rookie and an irritable crew; Captain Phil’s health problems makes his future with the crew uncertain, so they prepare to handle the ship on their own.

Kathy Griffin is…Not Nicole Kidman | 9pm on Bravo
In her second one-hour assault on celebrity culture, Kathy Griffin takes on American Idol stars Ryan Seacrest and Clay Aiken, the powerful talk show diva Oprah, and household names such as Barbara Streisand, Dick Clark and Ozzy Ozborne. [GMMR: I know this isn’t new, but if you’re a fan of Kathy Griffin or at least our celebrity-obsessed culture, then you must check this out tonight.  So frakkin’ funny.]

Flipping Out | 10pm on Bravo
When Jeff becomes doubtful that his staff members are working hard, he decides to investigate the situation by installing hidden cameras in the office to monitor exactly what his employees are doing whenever he isn’t there to supervise them.

Tori & Dean: Inn Love | 10pm on Oxygen
Tori and Dean celebrate son Liam’s birthday with a party, but Tori wants a bigger bash than their planned backyard barbecue. On the guest list: Loni Anderson, Denise Richards, Carmen Electra and Zachary Quinto. [GMMR: Ok, let me explain…I don’t know if this is a new episode or a repeat (although it was listed as new).  I’ve never seen this show before and I don’t plan on watching tonight, but as someone who learned most major life lessons from 90210 I thought it was important to support Tori. I’m still bitter than her dad left her crumbs when he passed…he was loaded.  So in support of Donna Martin, check out her little show tonight.  Plus, the uber sexy Zachary Quinto of HEROES makes an appearance.  Bonus. If only David Silver would show.]

What shows are going to be lucky enough to make it on to YOUR TV tonight? Anything you’re really looking forward to?
