Tom Lehrer, the purported inventor of the Jello shot, was born on this day in 1928. Thank you, Mr. Lehrer, for your contribution to frat parties, underage alcohol consumption, and the best-tasting hangover vehicles in the world. We salute you, sir!
Dancing with the Stars (ABC 8pm) KISS performs; the remaining couples perform to classic rock songs.
That should be… interesting.
The Voice (NBC 8pm) Hopefuls from two teams compete.
I think we’re all hopeful that this doesn’t happen again.
Bones (Fox 8pm) When an extreme couponer’s remains are found on the side of a road, the investigation leads the team to the supermarket where she shopped.
I’m mostly surprised that the extreme couponer wasn’t found under mounds of toilet paper and fruit roll-ups in her own garage.
Inside the Actor’s Studio (Bravo 8pm) The cast members of Glee share an inside look into their careers and stories from behind the scenes of the hit series.
Oh, James Lipton. Really?
Bad Girls Club: Las Vegas (Oxygen 9pm) Two new roommates arrive at the house and one of them is quickly targeted as the weakest bad girl ever.
Because this season wasn’t quite lame enough already.
Being Human (SyFy 9pm) Finale: Episode — It’s My Party and I’ll Die If I Want To
I still resent them changing the network name to “SyFy.” I feel stupid every time I type it.
I miss you!
Anthony Bourdain No Reservations (The Travel Channel 9pm) Premiere: Tony travels to Mozambique, a mysterious, post-colonial Africa.
Considering that two-thirds of the population of Mozambique are under-nourished, there were food riots a couple of years ago, and recent flooding has required intervention from the UN’s World Food Program, I wonder if Tony will touch on the harsh realities of feeding the people who actually live there?
Styled by June (VH1 9:30pm) Actor Jaleel White wants to be known as himself, rather than his former character.
I can’t imagine why.
Smash (NBC 10pm) When the show’s new star gets stuck in Cuba, Derek puts Karen in as understudy.
Raise your hand if you didn’t see that coming. Anybody? No? Allrighty then.
Mama’s Boys of the Bronx (TLC 10pm) Five friends from the Bronx who still live at home with their mamas.
Show description: For lifelong friends Anthony, Frankie, Giovanni, Peter and Chip, growing up on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx means never having to leave your mama. This series shares a slice of the real Little Italy, following these five Italian-Americans who are similar in many ways: they’re bachelors, in their 30s, employed … and they still live with their mothers. While the moms would love for their sons to marry a “good Italian girl,” that day may never come, since the guys are pampered at home and rely on their moms for such things as cleaning clothes and making meals. Cameras also capture the guys at work, hanging out on Arthur Avenue and enjoying what the rest of the city has to offer, before they come home to greet Mama once again.
I weep for my generation.
What will you be watching tonight?
