Season 2 of Game of Thrones premieres this weekend. Here endeth the lesson.
Okay, fine, I’ll give you what you came here for. But none of it will be half as good as Game of Thrones. And a huge shout-out and thank you to Flipit for covering for me these past couple days!
Saturday, March 31
Escape Routes (NBC 8pm) Six teams of two participants embark on a unique national road trip competition.
The premise sounds familiar…
20/20: My Extreme Affliction (ABC 9pm) Children with obsessive compulsive disorder; families of children with schizophrenia share their experiences.
Didn’t My Extreme Affliction open for Poison back in the day?
Bayou Billionaires (CMT 9pm) Season Finale: Gerald Sr. won’t let the Dowden ladies take part in the family camping trip; Kitten treats the women to a weekend in Beverly Hills.
Sucks to be a girl in that family.
Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s (OWN 9pm) Season Premiere: Tim and Jenae move in with Miss Robbie; tensions run high between Robbie and Tim.
Turns out Sweetie Pie’s is a soul food restaurant and not, as I originally thought, a brothel.

Game of Thrones!!! Tonight!! HBO!
Once Upon A Time (ABC 8pm) Emma keeps searching for evidence to prove Mary Margaret’s innocence in Kathryn’s murder; the root of the evil queen’s disdain for Snow White is revealed.
Sure, people who attract herds of small, disease carrying critters when they sing are annoying, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to try and kill them, Regina!
The 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards (CBS 8pm) Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton host the annual ceremony honoring achievement in country music at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The good news is that Gwenyth Paltrow won’t be singing at them this year.
The Celebrity Apprentice (NBC 8pm) The celebrities must create and sell a celebrity guidebook about New York, with Regis Philbin judging the product’s quality.
I’m pretty sure Regis and The Donald get their hair done at the same place.
The Killing (AMC 8pm) Season Premiere: Sarah investigates a possible cover up; an ominous discovery is made at the Larsen’s house; Councilman Richmond has a dark secret.
That’s pretty much how season 1 left me feeling, too.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo 9pm) New episode
They’ve stopped giving episode descriptions for this show on the zap2it listings. I think that says all we need to know.
Game of Thrones (HBO 9pm) Tyrion arrives in King’s Landing to counsel Joffrey; Stannis Baratheon plots an invasion to claim his late brother’s throne; Daenerys and her three dragons search for allies and water; Bran presides over a threadbare Winterfell.
“What will you be watching tonight?”
