Here we go! The CW is starting it’s new fall season tonight. The new series Hellcats premieres at 9pm. It sticks with the winning formula the CW has promoted over the past few years, catering to the younger Tween crowd. This show is all about cheerleading & not just the “go team” part, but the true competitive, down & dirty part of the sport… yes it IS a sport! High School Musical‘s Ashley Tisdale is part of the cast, but not its star…. Alyson Michalka is. She plays a down & out college student who’s lost her financial aid & is looking for ways to stay in college. A cheerleading scholarship is just the ticket, but she hates cheerleaders & everything they stand for…. (could this be CW’s attempt at a Glee clone?) thus it begins.
Cycle 15 of America’s Next Top Model begins tonight at 8pm. The controversy over 6’2″ model Anna’s tiny waist (Judge J Alexander could circle it with his hands) has subsided abit, but everyone is wondering how Tyra Banks will handle the situation on the opening episode. Designer Cynthia Rowley will have the 32 wanna-bees wear her collection & ultimately pick the 14 who will compete for this year’s prizes…. which are a fashion spread in Italian Vogue magazine (not “Seventeen” this year), the cover of “Beauty in Vogue” magazine, a contract with IMG Modeling Agency & Cover Girl Make-up plus $100,000. Tyra promises “high fashion”. Let the catwalk/cat fights begin!
FX has a new series premiering tonight at 10pm. Terriers is all about an ex-cop & his buddy going into the private investigating business without a license. Neither one likes trouble or taking responsibility for what they do to solve crimes. From the creators of Ocean Eleven & the producers of The Shield, this show has enough humor & also plenty of the action FX is famous for to make it “must see” TV. Donal Logue (ER & Grounded for Life) & Michael Raymond-James (True Blood) are the stars who we all end up rooting for as they find more trouble than criminals, all to the chagrin of local law enforcement. Kinda sounds like a buddy-style Rockford Files, which I hear is getting a remake too.
Don’t forget… tonight is part #1 of the season finale of Top Chef: D.C. on Bravo at 1opm. The remaining chefs are flown off to Singapore for their next culinary challenge. Be sure to look for J-Mo’s recap of the whole event.
America’s Got Talent (NBC 9pm) will give us the final four results from America’s voting. To fill in the whole hour they have guest appearances by Sarah McLachlan (she sings that sad, sad animal abuse commercial song) & the cast of the American Idol stage show.
Big Brother 12 (CBS 8pm) will try to make us believe their show is LIVE tonight with the the eviction of another houseguest & the first of a 3-part Head of Household competition with the final 3. The results & part #2 of the HOH competition WILL be LIVE tomorrow night.
What more can you ask for? Well, I’ll tell ya….Cat Ladies (Animal Planet 10pm) is all about those lovable old ladies with more cats than anyone can imagine. Wonder why they didn’t call me?
