This SHOULD be the winner of this year’s 2009 MTV VMA Awards, but it’s not even nominated. The nominees after the jump….Sunday nights are always big & tonight is no exception. The main event is the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, which airs live on MTV AND VH1, at 9pm. Screwball Russell Brand is back as the host & I’m sure he’ll say something offensive before the night’s over, which is just why they brought him back again. Gotta love LIVE TV!
Of course, there’s a pre-show show at 8pm & we get to see all the outrageous costumes the music industry chooses to wear so they get noticed. This is where publicity is a plus! I just finished watching all the nominees for this year’s “Video of the Year” award & have voted for my favorite. What’s yours?
Expect a “Tribute to Michael Jackson” theme. Sister Janet will open the show with a salute to the King of Pop. Others performing tonight are Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Green Day, Beyonce & Pink. Jay-Z is doing a duet with Alicia Keys. Beyonce & Lady Gaga are both in nominations first place with 9 each, but “I’m back” Britney Spears is right behind them with 7 noms. I hope she cleans the floor with those bitches.
Okay, let’s move on to more TV than a DVR can hold!
NBC’s highly-rated Sunday Night Football is back with the season opener, Chicago Bears VS The GreenBay Packers. Kick-off is at 7:30pm. It’s the 177th match-up between these two teams.
HBO has the season finale of it’s intensely sexy & often gory & even funny, True Blood at 9pm. I’m sure this finale will leave me wondering “WTF?!! I just hope that Maryann is a goner & we get to see Jason naked one more time. He’s kept his clothes on way too much this season, but then, we’ve had Eric get a full make-over & he was a pleasant diversion.
HBO’s new series Hung has it’s season finale tonight too, at 10pm. It seems like it just got started. I was just getting into this quirky (lol… love that word) comedy about a guy with a big dick & it’s financial advantages. A new episode of Entourage follows at 10:30pm.
AMC’s Mad Men airs at 10pm. Don & Betty have to deal with her father’s death & daughter Sally isn’t taking it very well. I’m told that this show is “very cerebral” at times & maybe that’s why I don’t get all the praise poured upon it, but I still watch, waiting for something to happen.
The series finale of King of the Hill is tonight on FOX at 8 & 8:30pm. Two episodes signal the end of the second-longest running cartoon in primetime. No matter tho, it’s found it’s popularity on the Cartoon Network during it’s “Adult Swim” hours. “I’ll tell you what” has become the new catchphrase. Did anyone else ever want to slap Peggy Hill, or am I the only one?
Drop Dead Diva & Army Wives are both on Lifetime at 9 & 10pm, respectively. Is anyone watching Drop Dead Diva? I have & I fight with myself whether or not I like this show. The courtroom scenes are a plus, but I’m not so sure about “I’m a skinny girl, trapped in a fat body” story. Oh, I like the idea, but the sight gags with her cravings for donuts & sweets is a bit over the top at times…. and she’s not that fat either. She’s more normal than most women we see on TV.
CBS has a ‘clip show’ of Big Brother 11 at 8pm. It’s just filler so the can have their finale on Tuesday night & get better ratings. They can’t compete against NBC’s football game. They will go head to head with NBC’s season premiere of The Biggest Loser then.
There Goes the Neighborhood follows at 9pm, with it’s series finale. After all the challenges & the final two families face-off against each other, the winning family throws a BBQ party for everyone. At a neighborhood election, all the neighbors, from every age, cast a single ballot to determine which family will win $250,000. So what was the point of all those challenges?? The worst family could end up winning because the others might hate the winningest family for eliminating them. Right? Did anyone watch this anyways?
Other shows on tonight are:
ABC has Shark Tank at 9pm & Defying Gravity at 10pm.
Food Network is airing the Amazing Pie Challenge at 8pm. The winner of the tastiest pie gets $5000.
E! has another new episode of Khourtney & Khloe at 10pm & that’s followed by Reality Hell at 10:30pm.
Well, I think I’ve covered a little bit of everything. My “Pick of the Night” is MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards.. Of course, True Blood is my second choice.
