TV This Week: Reality Premiere-a-palooza
This week is all about the premieres. While it’s almost entirely reality shows, there is one good drama out there for you reality haters. Either way, your TV is bound to get a workout this week.
Fish Warrior - National Geographic Channel – Monday, July 26, 9 p.m. (ET)
Series premiere. Featuring the arapaima fish. It’s a very, very, very old fish. These things are adventurous eaters and even eat monkeys. That’s one freaky fish.
MasterChef - Fox – Tuesday, July 27, 9 p.m. (ET)
Series premiere. This is a cooking competition for home cooks. Based on the commercials, Gordon Ramsay doesn’t seem as douchey as usual…what’s that about?
Growing Up Twisted - A&E – Tuesday, July 27, 10 p.m. (ET)
Series premiere. This series follows Dee Snider of Twisted Sister. In this episode, a less than romantic tattoo incident occurs between Dee and his wife. How dare they de-romanticize tattoos like that.
The Colony - Discovery Channel – Tuesday, July 27, 10 p.m. (ET)
Second season premiere. In this season, “survivors” try to continue on after a “viral outbreak.” Sounds “good.”
Following two recovering addicts. Addictions sure have changed over the years. This certainly isn’t your grandparents addiction (or maybe it is)…
Rubicon - AMC – Sunday, August 1, 8 p.m. (ET)
Series premiere. The tag line is “not all conspiracies are theories.” Which I think means we have no choice but to watch. Who doesn’t love a good conspiracy?
What Your Girlfriend’s Watching
Plain Jane - CW – Wednesday, July 28, 9 p.m. (ET)
Series premiere. A fashion expert doles out makeovers to plain girls so that they can make their moves on their crushes. Because nothing gives plain girls more confidence than having a beautiful, tall matchmaker. Way to make ‘em feel subhuman, CW.
Project Runway - Lifetime – Thursday, July 29, 9 p.m. (ET)
Eighth season opener. And, for your viewing pleasure, it is an extra-long episode. Prepare yourself.
Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta - TLC – Friday, July 30, 9:30 p.m. (ET)
Series premiere. Finally, Say Yes to the Dress has it’s first spinoff. The excitement is palpable.
