What to watch on Monday, September 26...
Don't be sad that it's Monday, there are DINOSAURS on TV tonight! Honestly, if that doesn't get you through the day, I don't know what will. Dinosaurs, you guys!
SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, Fox
Dinosaurs. In tonight's two-hour premiere, a convicted felon agrees to relocate his family through space and time in order to help populate a dinosaur-infested patch of jungle. Dinosaurs. Steven Spielberg. Dinosaurs.
SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, Syfy
In tonight's conclusion to what's been an excellent first season, Red Flag escalates its war on the Department of Defense—and only our beloved heroes stand in the way. Good luck, friendly mutants!
SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, CW
Hart of Dixie
In the worst, most embarrassing setup possible, Rachel Bilson plays a cardiothoracic surgeon (LOL) who travels to Alabama for almost no reason (to become more friendly in order to receive a medical fellowship?) and finds herself in charge of the local clinic there. So many colorful Southern rubes! Alligators! Rachel Bilson as a cardiothoracic surgeon! Must-watch television, basically.
SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 9:30pm, CBS
Mike & Molly
Newly Emmy-minted actress Melissa McCarthy returns to our living rooms tonight when you pop in your new DVD of Bridesmaids. Haha just kidding, she's also on Mike & Molly, still playing a chunky gal with an infectious spirit. Tonight's sitcom contrivance: Molly wants to plan the wedding, but Mike just wants to go fishing with the guys.
SEASON 7 FINALE, 10pm, Showtime
After an interesting, hit-or-miss season which saw Nancy Botwin earning an early release from her halfway house and immediately setting up a drug ring in Manhattan, Weeds closes up shop tonight (and forever? No word yet on renewal) with a major confrontation between Nancy and her ambitious dreamboat son, Silas.
ORIGINAL MOVIE, 9pm, Lifetime
The Bling Ring
Did you ever read that amazing Vanity Fair article about The Bling Ring, the gang of Hollywood teens (including the girl from E!'s Pretty Wild) who burgled celebrities like Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan? It was an awesome article! Anyway, tonight that story gets the Lifetime Original Movie treatment, FINALLY.
