Tonight’s TV Addictions: June 16, 2009

NEW & NOTABLE:
I’M A CELEBRITY GET ME OUT OF HERE! (8PM NBC)
Last night, there was much discussion of Janice’s inability to poop. Fortunately, a quick trip to the doctor got the crap out of her system… not that it did anything about her notorious potty mouth! Tonight, the competition delayed by storms takes place.

HAWTHORNE (9PM TNT)
Good News: ALIAS’ Michael Vartan returns to series TV. Bad News: In another trademark TNT series (snoore!) featuring a career-driven woman (Jada Pinkett Smith) who must deal with her demons, both personal and professional.

MENTAL (9PM FOX)
Think you’re addicted to Wii or whatever system you play on? Tonight, Jack treats a kid obsessed with a video game… that only exists in his head. Here’s hoping he’s not a big fan of boxing!

FRONTLINE (9PM PBS)
Using Bank of America as the backdrop, this episode examines the role of big banks in the economic collapse of 2008… and how to turn the situation around.


HITCHED OR DITCHED (9PM CW)
A New Jersey couple must decide whether to walk down the aisle or run away from each other. Everyone they love says to run… at least away from New Jersey!

MAN CAVES (9PM DIY)
Okay, the title alone is great. Better still, the idea is pretty cool: Tonight, they take a 1970’s style basement and turn it into an Irish pub.

CUPID (10PM ABC)
The season series finale finds Claire trying to figure out the truth about Trevor by hiring a… speech expert? Um, okay. Meanwhile, Trevor tries to help a masseuse — played by the always-delightful Kerry Butler — class herself up.

    What I think has been the funniest episode of Better Off Ted is on tonight at 9:30 (EST) on ABC. Really you have no excuse not to watch it since there is NOTHING else on tonight.

    How did I ever miss the Janice / Poop episode of I’m a Celebrity? Well, come to think of it, aren’t all their episodes poop?

    Thanks for the Better Off Ted suggestion, Ace.
