It would be ridiculous for Nip/Tuck, returning tonight, to ignore the Ice-9 freeze the economy is in, so business at McNamara/Troy is down. The only problem is, without the cars and the girls, Nip/Tuck is forced to focus on its characters, and it wants to say something meaningful. Way to suck the fun out of a show that used to define "guilty pleasure," guys.
It's Wednesday night -- Nip/Tuck is back!

TV.com's daily news round-up for Tuesday, September 1.
In case you haven't been paying attention, basic-cable network FX has quietly become of the best on television. The net has led the charge of ad-supported cable networks producing quality original programming, leaving major networks fearing for their livelihoods -- and they should continue to stay scared.
After 6 years of slicing and dicing, the final (and 100th) episode of Nip/Tuck was filmed on June 12. Though it won't air until 2011, making the show's ending both bittersweet and very delayed, the news yields the end of an era.
Ryan Murphy is one daring dude. His claim to fame is the twisted Nip/Tuck, which doesn't shy away from close-ups of plastic surgery procedures and bare bottoms. Another project of his that didn't make the cut focused on a man undergoing a sex-change operation (it looked great, btw). But now Murphy is apparently having a change of tune.
Mad Men may have made most of the noise in recent award ceremonies for cable dramas, but another mouthwatering cabler that didn't do too shabby should not be overlooked. FX today officially rolled out the return date of Emmy-winner Damages, as well as another of its original programs, Nip/Tuck.
In a gallant effort to champion some of the nation's most underpaid workers--notably themselves--famous TV stars Julian McMahon and Dylan Walsh are leading their Nip/Tuck colleagues in salary negotiations with the FX network.
