What’s On Tonight: Tuesday, 8/4 August 4, 2009

Well, it’s Shark Week on Discovery so quite a few things there.  I have several shows sitting on my DVR right now, plus some others being added: Great White Shark Uncaged, Prowling for Sharks in the Mediterranean, Shark Battlefield, Shark Attack, Mysteries of the Shark Coast, and so on.  We watched the Survivorman episode last night where Les Stroud counted down the top 5 most shark-infested waters and my husband asked me to guess what #1 would be.  For whatever reason, I guessed Florida.  He guessed Australia.  I fell asleep before seeing the end but he informed me today that Australia was second and Florida first.  It turns out I’m a secret shark genius.

Also on tonight is Tori & Dean Home Sweet Hollywood and it’s the much-touted (in the press at least) season finale.  So far we’ve had mom Candy accuse Tori of using her children for the sake of the show and sending in an RSVP that she would be at baby Stella’s first birthday party, which would also be her first introduction to the child.  Tori has really taken the high road and although she discusses issues with her mother on the show, she hasn’t written open letters to the press about their relationship, unlike her mother.  We already know Candy doesn’t show up, but you’ll get to see meager Tori’s heart get broken once more.  Despite all that nonsense, Tori and Dean appear to have a great, solid marriage and two freaking adorable children that I can’t get enough of.  Some might be in love with Stella, but right now my eyes are on Liam.  It’s been so fun to watch him grow up and come into a personality over the past few years and I hope we get the same opportunity with little Stella.

I’ve also heard that Miami Social is pretty delish, but I think I give Bravo enough of my viewership for the time being and in upcoming months it will only get worse with the premieres of Flipping Out, Top Chef Las Vegas, and Rachel Zoe Project.  I swore a while back that I wouldn’t invest myself in either NYC Prep or Miami Social and I’ve lived up to my word and not watched one single episode.  I’m proud because there isn’t much I say “no” to!

I’ve invested in the Blockbuster online rental service to catch my husband up on Dexter, which is truly a brilliant show and one of the few I think he’ll enjoy watching with me.  So far we only have It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Office.

That’s what’s on my radar tonight!

Tori Spelling Book Party

I love Tori and Dean.  They seem like the kind of reality couple that can stand the test of time and the sheer force of cameras in your face 18 hours per day.  More importantly than thinking that they are a real, sweet couple who seem to be genuinely in love and have each other’s best interests at heart, though, is the adorableness that is their children.
