What to Watch Tonight: Season Finales of The Exes, The Soul Man, and America's Lost Treasures

What to watch on Wednesday, September 5...

Here's some sad news: Last week Here Comes Honey Boo Boo managed to rake in higher ratings than the Republican National Convention. Glad to see America knows where its priorities lie. Let's hope the Democrats aren't as easily embarrassed this week, eh? Here's your television line-up for the night:

9pm, USA
Royal Pains
Sandwiched between two NCIS reruns, this week's "Hurts Like a Mother" features a mother-daughter duo who call on Hank to help them with what they think are unrelated illnesses. Could a high-strung student and a romance novelist actually be suffering from the same affliction? Also, Divya's boyfriend comes knocking for Jeremiah's help, which seems strange considering they haven't been dating for very long. And Paige works through familial issues, but Evan is there to back her every step of the way.

9pm, MTV
True Life
In "I'm Giving My Boyfriend an Ultimatum" MTV's cameras will follow two women who are, um, giving their boyfriends an ultimatum. Cool! The first, Massiel, is hoping her boyfriend will stop criticizing her. Hey, that sounds reasonable enough. But Angela wants her boyfriend to ditch his job for something "better." That might be a little tougher to finagle, girl.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, NatGeo
America's Lost Treasures
Generally speaking, these treasure-hunting reality shows like to save the best discoveries for the finale—so considering tonight marks the Season 1 finale, I'm guessing it's going to be the best episode yet. Break out your Encyclopedias, gang, we're about to uncover some seriously historical shiz straight out of Santa Ana, California. Prehistoric pottery, weaponry that once belonged to a 19th-century sea captain, and a rare set of Native American baskets that date back to a very specific tribe? Sounds like museum fodder worth geeking-out over.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, TV Land
The Soul Man
In the first season finale, "Momma's Home," a storm-induced blackout coincidentally occurs as Barton's estranged wife shows up for a visit. And Boyce does his best to encourage Barton to make peace with her. Sometimes you gotta let sleeping dogs lie, Boyce.


SEASON 2 FINALE, 10:30pm, TV Land
The Exes
Another season finale! Whatever shall we watch next week? In "Pirates of the Care of Eden" (wow, that's a stretch for a title pun if I've ever seen one) Eden goes into labor. Unfortunately, her timing is off, because it happens to go down while everybody's out crashing a party on Phil's boss's yacht. Get that baby to shore, mate!

Seriously? The Exes, America's Lost Treasures? You don't even mention Damages? It's the next to last episode, yet it doesn't even get a mention? Lame move.

[RANT]President Obama creating 4.5 MILLION private sector jobs with 29 straight months of job growth ISN'T letting us down. It's a FACT of sustained economic growth.



Yeah, we would be better off going with the backwards republican policy of trickle down economics, to CUT health care, CUT education, CUT unemployment benefits, BUT give 5 TRILLION more of unfunded and unneeded tax CUTS for the TOP richest 2% who already own MORE than the bottom 90% COMBINED.



Yeah, lets revert back to the FAILED policies of G W Bush's Great Recession...[/RANT]

Keep in mind we've had 42 straight months of >8% unemployment. Job postings do not equal job growth. You want some real numbers check out http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/09/why_blame_obama.html

I think the issue is that America realized Honey Boo Boo was a more realistic and compelling story than the RNC. I'm *sure* the Democrats' Convention will do just as poorly in the ratings though, especially since day 2 is up against the first game of the NFL season. Also because IT'S NOT A TV SHOW.



I'll be watching:

Royal Pains

The Exes

The Daily Show

Colbert Report

Senior Ferguson y muchacho roboto
