What to Watch Tonight: The Bachelor Pad Finale, Miss Universe, and Gaga by Gaultier

By Price Peterson

Sep 12, 2011

What to watch on Monday, September 12...

Like a nudist wearing only a T-shirt, tonight's lineup is mostly unappetizing. When do all those new shows start again? It feels like never? (It's actually tomorrow.) Oh well, here are some notable picks anyway!

SEASON 2 FINALE, 8pm, ABC
Bachelor Pad
The romantic horror circus known as Bachelor Pad concludes tonight with a final challenge involving—what else?—Cirque du Soleil. Then the non-eliminated couples will return to Los Angeles where a winning team will receive a quarter of a million dollars and a newly minted Fun Fact for their eventual obituaries.

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 9pm, NBC
Miss Universe Pageant
Bravo Executive Vice President and part-time garbage truck driver Andy Cohen hosts this Donald Trump-affiliated beauty pageant wherein dozens of the world's greatest beauties will converge in São Paulo to crown this year's winner. Good luck, everyone (especially the viewers)!

9pm, ABC Family
The Lying Game
Emma's ongoing charade continues full-steam as she decides to run for homecoming queen under her twin sister's identity. Meanwhile Alec grows increasingly suspicious about the real Sutton's whereabouts. Or maybe everyone will just start telling the truth and go on to live normal, happy lives? You never know!

SEASON 6 FINALE, 9pm, HGTV
HGTV Design Star
In tonight's season finale of one of TV's least trashy reality competitions, both remaining interior designers will produce full pilots, but only one will win her own HGTV show. Will it be Vintage-Tee Karl or Raspy Meg? Tune in to find out!

SERIES FINALE, 9pm, TLC
Kate Plus 8
America's love affair with our modern-day Mary Tyler Moore sadly draws to a close this evening, as Kate Gosselin and her pint-sized comedy troupe call it a day. A long, mostly annoying, frequently worrisome day, but a day nonetheless. Will Jon pop by for a steaming cup of nostalgia? Fingers crossed!

8pm, CW
Gaga by Gaultier
As it turns out, popular singer Lady Gaga really LOVES fashion. For this reason she'll submit herself to 72 minutes of grueling, flattering questioning by none other than fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Lady Gaga is definitely at her best when she's a super serious know-it-all, so this should be riveting!

    "tonight's lineup is mostly unappetizing", were you high when you wrote this?



    Werehouse 13 (best show on TV at the moment - with Haven), Eureka, Alphas, Weeds, Death Valley, Rizzoli & Isles, The Big C and Top Gear. I'll feel pretty stuffed after that lot!

    Come on, Jimmy Kimmel Live doesn't get a shout out for having NATHAN FILLION? I thought this was a tv website! I'm watching... The Lying Game, Weeds, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Rizzoli and Isles, Alphas, The Closer, JIMMY KIMMEL, and some Monday Night football. When did Monday nights become so packed?
