Sunday marks the season finale of The Tudors on Showtime at 9/8c. It’s also the season premieres of Ice Road Truckers (my husband LOVES this show!) on the History Channel at 9/8c and The Next Food Network Star (*I* love this show!) on Food Network at 10/9c.
Finally, it is the series premieres of two new shows. First up is In Plain Sight on USA at 10/9c. Mary McCormack (The West Wing) stars as Mary Shannon. Her friends and family think she’s just a glorified courier, but she’s actually a U.S. Marshal, working for the highly secretive Witness Protection Program. Her job is to help relocate federal witnesses. Whether they’re career criminals, or just people who had the misfortune to witness a crime, they all share one thing in common – somebody wants them dead. Co-starring Frederick Weller and Lesley Ann Warren.
It’s also the premiere of Million Dollar Password on CBS at 8/7c. Regis Philbin returns to prime time to host this modern update of one of television’s greatest game shows. This update takes the classic game and brings it to the 21st century with big celebrities, big money and big stakes. Contestants team up with some of the hottest stars, from Rosie O’Donnell, Betty White, Rachael Ray and Neil Patrick Harris to “High School Musical’s” Monique Coleman, to earn up to one million dollars. One player from the team is told secret passwords and can use only one-word clues to get the teammate to guess them. If the player and the celebrity can work well together and become a solid team, that player could uncover the million dollar password. Tonight’s premiere has Rachael Ray and Neil Patrick Harris!
Just FYI, every day this week, VH1 will be having a marathon run of one of the first seven seasons of The Bachelor & The Bachelorette! If you missed the beginning, catch up today with the 6 episodes of season 1, on VH1 starting at 6/5c through the end at 11/10c.
