Jenny’s TV Guide: Friday July 11

Friday marks the series premiere of Ashley Paige: Bikini or Bust on TLC at 10/9c followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c. The docu-series goes inside the life of Ashley Paige, a renowned bathing suit designer who had it all magazine covers, A-list celebrities wearing her bikinis, a brand-new store in Los Angeles … in short, a promising career in the fashion world. But, just as quickly as she became an overnight sensation, she hit rock bottom. Currently, Ashley can barely make rent, let alone successfully run her business. But that’s all about to change as she embarks on a journey to take all of her potential and turn it into success.

The one I’m really looking forward to most is the series premiere of Flashpoint on CBS at 10/9c. This emotional journey into the tough, risk-filled lives of a group of cops in the SRU (inspired by Toronto’s Emergency Task Force) is about a unit that rescues hostages, busts gangs, defuses bombs, climbs the sides of buildings and talks down suicidal teens. As they race against the clock to determine what brought these people to their respective breaking points, members of this highly skilled team use their training in negotiating, profiling and getting inside the suspect’s head to diffuse the situation to try to save lives. It stars Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars on Veronica Mars)

It’s also the season premiere of Stargate: Atlantis on SciFi at 10/9c and the return of Degrassi: The Next Generation on The N at 8/7c.

    Actually, tonight there will be two episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation on The N. Both are new to us American viewers, but they are airing the episodes out of order. The N is skipping the Ladies’ Night episode, which airs between the two airing tonight, and will air it next week. I don’t know the reason, but the two episodes tonight probably mesh together for a better ‘premiere’. But who can really explain The N’s way of airing Degrassi, anyways.

    And I wasn’t trying to correct your schedule, so no offense taken hopefully, I just wanted fans to be warned.
