What’s On: REDEMPTION SUNDAY!

Will Rob Mariano win the title that’s eluded him 3 previous times? I’d sure like him to, but I have a feeling he’s made too many enemies and for the second time he’s gonna lose for the same reason. But who know’s if he’ll even make it, with 8 people still in contention for the title and the million it’s anyone’s game – well not Natalie’s. Depserate Housewives also closes their seventh season tonight, a season that’s been better than the last few with much thanks to the many season one throwbacks. With new episodes of The Killing, Game of Thrones and Fox’s animated series, it’s a jam packed rainy sunday. Here are our recommendations for tonight, Sunday May 15, 2011.

The Best:

American Dad “Flirting With Disaster” 7:30 on FOX

Francine gets a job at the CIA which you would think would put a stop to Stan’s flirting, but instead it becomes a flirting competition between the competitive couple. Fox usually doesn’t post promos so enjoy!

Season Finale Alert!
Survivor: Redemption Island “Seems Like A No-Brainer” 8:00 and “Reunion” 10:00 on CBS

Rob, Philip, Natalie, Ashley and Matt, Andrea, Mike and Grant. I want Rob to win, but I mean – he should have won All-Stars. I hope Matt doesn’t make it back in from the redemption crew, he drives me absolutely crazy. 

Season Finale Alert!
Desperate Housewives “And Lots Of Security” & “Come Over For Dinner” 9:00 to 11:00 on ABC

Season 7 comes to an end tonight and what a season it’s been! Paul Young came back to Wisteria Lane and brought some life back into the series, which had an awful season last year. But thanks to Young (a devious Mark Moses), the addition of Renee (Vanessa Williams), the Carlos banishing Bree, it’s been one helluva season, with my only major criticism being Lynette’s plots are a merry-go-round of misery and she’s completely unsympathetic and in this current fight she’s having with Tom, I’m on Tom’s side and I can’t help but think that Lynette’s being a hypocritical bitch. The first chunk of the season which focused on Young’s dastardly plan to devalue the street, but following the suicide of his wife Beth (for those keeping track that’s two of his wives who’ve shot themselves in the head) the focus of the plot turned to Felicia Tillman (Harriet Sansom Harris) and her scheme to get revenge on Paul, and when we last left the show Susan was about to be arrested for poisoning Paul. Usually housewives hints at the upcoming plot of the next season in the finale, so it’ll be interesting to see where they go.

Game of Thrones “The Wolf and The Lion” 9:00 on HBO

Aiden Gillen, who played Tommy Carcetti on The Wire, has been really impressive as the devious Petyr Baelish AKA ‘Littlefinger’ it’s not too far a cry away from the wily politician he played on The Wire, but the period suits him. He’s giving Peter Dinklage a run for his money as the prime scene stealer. The previous episode ended with Catelyn Stark taking Tyrion Lannister captive believing he tried to have her son killed. 

The Killing “Stonewalled” 10:00 on AMC

As the investigation hits a slump so does the series, here’s hoping it can find the tension that made it must-see-TV right out of the gate.

The Rest:

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition 8:00 on ABC – Ty is short for Tygert. I’m serious. 

Minute To Win It 8:00 on NBC – Special Night. 

The Simpsons 8:00 on FOX – Lisa solves a mystery.

Bob’s Burgers 8:30 on FOX – Lobsterfest is the title and I am already salivating. 

The Celebrity Apprentice 9:00 on NBC – Only an idiot who thinks he can be president would fire Star Jones and let Nene Leakes quit. 

Family Guy 9:00 on FOX – Bonnie crosses a line on a trip to France. 

Law & Order:CI 9:00 on USA – Now that Law and Order:LA is cancelled and this is on it’s last season there will be one Law & Order on TV for the first time in 11 years. 

Army Wives 9:00 on Lifetime – BRING ON DROP DEAD DIVA. Forget this shizz.

Season Finale Alert!
The Cleveland Show
 9:30 on FOX – The Cleveland show heads to comicon, I guess they’ve given up on trying to get black people to watch and are going for the nerds.  

The Borgias 10:00 on SHO – Francois Arnaud’s Caesare is the standout by far, and it’s actually getting more interesting week after week. 

In Plain Sight 10:00 on USA – Mary always gets her man, or so the promos would have you believe.

Breakout Kings 10:00 on A&E – Am I the only one really, really enjoying this show? 

Treme 10:00 on HBO – Congrats to the Treme team for their third season renewal!
