Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Sunday, July 26, 2009

July 26, 2009 by  

Between tonight’s big TV lineup and all the Comic Con panels I just posted (with more to come), there’s really no reason to leave your couch all day. Sit put and enjoy.

Tonight there is plenty to watch…especially if you have HBO, because that’s where most of the fun is tonight. But there’s also, a DOCTOR WHO special on tonight that I know many of you will want to check out.  I’ll be heading across the pond to give BEING HUMAN a shot tonight.  And I’m kind of intrigued by DROP DEAD DIVA. Did anyone watch is last week?

Here’s a few shows for you to choose from. Drop me a comment and let me know what YOU will be watching!

Doctor Who | 8pm on BBC America
“Planet of the Dead”
A burglar (Michelle Ryan) encounters the Doctor on a bus that takes an abrupt detour to a desert world inhabited by hostile life-forms. Malcolm: Lee Evans.

Big Brother 11 | 8pm on CBS
On tonight’s show, Jessie, the current Head of Household, nominates two of his fellow houseguests for eviction. [GMMR: Tonight is a perfect reason why I can really only talk about the show on Thursday nights.  I already know who was nominated and who has won this week’s POV. BIG BROTHER After Dark is a blessing and a curse. (Ok, not much of a blessing I guess, but it is helpful)]

Merlin | 8pm on NBC
“The Beginning of the End”
Merlin is forced to choose between saving a young Druid’s life and protecting Arthur. [GMMR: What? This show is still on? Are you kidding me? I haven’t heard one peep about it all summer long.  NBC, you know you only have yourself to blame.]

True Blood | 9pm on HBO
“Hard-Hearted Hannah”
Sookie embarks on a dangerous mission to locate Godric; Bill is shocked when a vampire from his past resurfaces in Dallas; Jason must make difficult emotional and physical choices.

Drop Dead Diva | 9pm on Lifetime
“Do Over”
Jane has a difficult time controlling her emotions and is thrown in jail for contempt of court; Kim and Grayson sue a shrink. [GMMR: Did anyone watch this last week? I’m kind of intrigued. Is it any good?]

Being Human | 9:30pm on BBC America
“Pilot” – Encore Presentation
Sci-fi series about three seemingly ordinary twentysomethings who live secret double lives as a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost. [GMMR:This is an encore presentation of the series that premiered last night. I don’t watch a lot of BBC American despite the quaility programming on the channel. I’m going to give this one a shot. New episodes premiere on Saturday nights, and I don’t watch a lot of TV on Saturdays so why not?!]

Hung | 10pm on HBO
“The Pickle Jar”
The students choose Coach Ray as the recipient of their fall fundraising efforts; Tanya has some promising leads that could jump-start Ray’s career.

Entourage | 10:30pm on HBO
“One Car, Two Car, Red Car, Blue Car”
Turtle contemplates his future career path and seeks out Ari for advice; Eric is nervous about Charlie’s pilot.

In Plain Sight | 10pm on USA
“Let’s Get it Ahn”
A world-class counterfeiter witness is suspected in a murder; Mary and Marshall realize they may be hiding a witness from the government.

Army Wives | 10pm on Lifetime
“Post & Prejudice”
Joan and Evan compete against each other in Fort Marshall’s war games; Haneen’s surgery is a success; Frank and Denise continue to work on their relationship.

Told ya there was a lot to choose from. Help a sista out…let me know what YOU are going to be watching. (I know I ask everyday, but finding out what y’all are watching helps me get a better sense of what we should be covering here on GMMR)

    I don’t get HBO or BBC America so I will be watching Big Brother tonight. I don’t like Merlin.

    The Beek is returning to tv tonight, along with Dylan McKay! I had not heard of this until this morning in the newspaper, but the first part of a two part mini series called “The Storm” is airing tonight on NBC. It stars Luke Perry and James Van der Beek (among a few other notables) and it’s about weather gone wild apparently. Part 2 airs next Sunday. Just wanted to share for any 90210/Dawson’s Creek/weather fans out there! Here’s a link to a preview:

    Had watched the Being Human pilot episode a while back. Decided to re-watch that followed by the entire series this afternoon.
    I initially missed the original actress who played Annie (the ghost character) in the pilot, but I quickly got used to the new actress. I highly recommend this series (just started watching the final episode of the first series now). It looks like BBCA skipped the original pilot episode and is just airing the 6 episode series, but I recommend watching the original pilot as it sets things up for the series.

    As for Merlin–saw a post my Anthony Stewart Head on Twitter that he is currently filming Series 2–so it must have done well in the UK. Wonder if NBC will even bother to air the second series here.
