TV This Week: Superheroes, Deadly Roads, and Danza

Have you recovered from last week’s intense TV schedule yet? We here at COED are still icing our eyes and bandaging our remote-controller thumbs. But let’s hope for a quick recovery, because this week has some more goodies in store for you!

Ancient X-Files: The Holy Grail – National Geographic Channel – Monday, September 27, 9 p.m. (ET)

Not only will this feature the Holy Grail, it will also feature the Minotaur. The episode that follows also features the possible blood of Christ. Is it just us, or does this show look totally awesome?

No Ordinary Family – ABC – Tuesday, September 28, 8 p.m. (ET)

Series premiere. This sci-fi drama follows a family that gets superpowers after a plane crash. It’s like Lost…but their superpower isn’t the power of confusion and disillusionment.

Teach: Tony Danza – A&E – Friday, October 1, 10 p.m. (ET)

Series premiere. This seven-part series puts Tony Danza into a high school in Philadelphia. He teaches English, coaches football, and weeps openly. That’s what we call good television.

The Next Iron Chef – Food Network – Sunday, October 3, 9 p.m. (ET)

Third season premiere. The chefs compete on the beach…but only after having made sandwiches. Oh, Alton Brown…you and your puns…

IRT Deadliest Roads – History Channel – Sunday, October 3, 10 p.m. (ET)

Series premiere. This series follows truckers driving some of the most dangerous roads. Seriously…they’re in the Himalayas. Do you even know how many yeti attacks there are annually?

The Glades – A&E – Sunday, October 3, 10 p.m. (ET)

First season finale. A caddie is killed. That takes some balls.

Law & Order: UK – BBC America – Sunday, October 3, 10:30 p.m. (ET)

U.S. premiere. The British have their own adaptation of the American show, and now they’re sharing it with us. It’s kind of like Madonna. We send her there, and then they send her back to us. It’s a pretty intense import-export situation.

What Your Girlfriend’s Watching

Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss – TLC – Friday, October 1, 9 p.m. (ET)

Series premiere. This show has more spin-offs than a Tilt-A-Whirl with no safety belts. I know what you’re thinking…a second Say Yes to the Dress spinoff? How lucky are you! Don’t think it comes without a twist, though. The twist, you ask? The brides are plus-sized. I know, I know. You would have thought they’d have Say Yes to the Dress: Polygamist Perfection before a plus-sized bride show. Really, it seems more TLC’s style.
