There’s a lot of good stuff on tonight – but what better way to begin February Sweeps than a wedding? And as is usually the case on OTH, weddings are campy, cheesy, over-melodramatic – potentially dangerous affairs – but we’ll get to more on that below. Tonight has a jam-packed 10pm rumble slot and new naval mysteries it’s a wonderful night for a wedding. Here are our recommendations for tonight, Tuesday February 1 2011.
One Tree Hill “The Other Half of Me” 8:00 on CW
Now I know no TV snob is supposed to favor the One Tree Hill – and I don’t, not really – it’s just sometimes it’s nice to pop back in and say hi to old friends. And OTH always have wild weddings. Let’s take a look at past nuptials.
Nathan & Haley (wedding 1) – Naley’s surprise elope by the river with only her parents in attendance (off screen season 1, on screen 2). Rated: Cute!
Keith & Jules (Emily) – The woman Dan paid to destroy his brother as revenge for sleeping with his wife, leaves Keith at the altar. (Season 2) Rated: Dramatic!
Nathan & Haley (wedding 2) – Pregnancy mystery, and a boy-crazy Rachel Gattina causing an accident leaving her, Cooper (Michael Trucco) and Nathan’s lives in the balance. (Season 3) Rated: Tense!
Lucas & Lindsay – A nailbiter for many reasons; Peyton’s debate as to whether to stop the wedding, psycho-pants nanny Carrie kidnaps Jamie, and Lucas’ fratricidal father Dan shows up. In the end all was okay, as murderer Dan (Paul Johannson) makes another notch in his belt disposing Carrie and returning Jamie to Naley and Lucas didn’t marry the awful Lindsay (Michaela McManus). (Season 5) Rated: Awesome!
Lucas & Peyton – Peyton was nearing the end of her dangerous pregnancy as her wedding day arrived. Lucas’ mother Karen (Moira Kelly), Andy and Lily return for Lucas’ wedding and Haley is ordained to marry them. Skills even has Jamie on a leash to avoid any Nanny Carrie-like incidents. (Season 6) Rated: Fitting!
Here’s the promo for Brooke and Julian:
V “Unholy Alliance” 9:00 on ABC
Anna goes to the Vatican to try and convince the world’s religious leaders to accept the V’s in her search for the human soul. With word that V’s ten episode season is ending with cliffhanger – renewal or not – I hope more people tune into this campy treat! The promo below has Diana (Jane Balder) biting off someone’s head. Awesome.
NCIS:LA “Lockup” 9:00 on CBS
Sam (LL Cool J) goes undercover in a prison tp get close to a terrorist that’s behind bars and Dr. Getz (former regular Peter Cambor) returns changed from his time away. Deeks and Kensi are my 2nd fave set of TV partners (after Danny and Jackie on Blue Bloods).
SouthLAnd “The Winds” 10:00 on TNT
Last week’s Southland was a complete shocker with Detective Nate Moretta (Kevin Alejandro) killed abruptly in one of the more tense action scenes in TV – for more detail check out my recap. Tonight has everybody reeling with the effects and feeling the pain in more ways than one.
The Good Wife “Silly Season” 10:00 on CBS
Tonight’s Good Wife looks unbelievable – Chris Noth, Titus Welliver, Anika Noni Rose, Michael Ealy, Scott Porter, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Dreama Walker all return to their recurring roles tonight, in what promises to be an interesting episode as both the battle for State’s attorney and Lockhart/Gardner ramp up.
NCIS 8:00 on CBS – A lot of old ladies get old lady wood watching Harmon solve crimes.
The Biggest Loser 8:00 on NBC – Go Courtney! You are a ray of sunshine! This is my sister’s fave series so every so often I get caught up in an episode, but beaming Courtney has me all a flutter I may just tune in tonight to see her shed her lbs.
Hellcats 9:00 on CW – Now that Marti and Savannah have made up, it’s time to focus on the cheerleading series’ legal plotline. That’s right, this is a LEGAL-SLASH-CHEERLEADING series.
RuPaul’s Drag Race 9:00 on VH1 – Probably the bitchiest reality series on TV. Should be on every reality junkie’s must list.
Detroit 187 10:00 on ABC – Aisha Hinds, who plays Lt. Mason is just one many above average actors in this average cop series.
Tosh.0 10:00 on Comedy Central – Watch Daniel Tosh humiliate someone who already humiliated themselves on the internet. I will.
Parenthood 10:00 on NBC – Julia throws a bachelorette party for Jasminewelcoming her to the clan and Haddie moves in with her grandparents when Christina refuses to accept her relationship with Alex (Michael B. Jordan). Does that young man look familiar WIRE fans? Michael B. Jordan, in the pic with Sarah Ramos, played Wallace on the first season of The Wire. Mind blown? He was also in last night’s nifty Social Network inspired season 3 finale and was good there too. I rewatched the first season of The Wire last week and SPOILER ALERT Wallace’s death stung even harder the second time around, I just keep hearing D’Angelo cry to Stinger “Where’s Wallace, Sting? WHERE’S WALLACE?”
Lights Out 10:00 on FX – I’m gonna wait till FX makes a renewal decision before I get invested with a family of character played by actors I enjoy.
Teen Mom 10:00 on MTV – Music TV’s white trash ratings bonanza is so enthralling FX blames this for stealing it’s grim boxing drama’s viewers. Yeah fucking right.
The Game 10:00 on BET – BET’s afro-american football themed ratings bonanza is so captivating FX blames this for stealing it’s grim boxing drama’s viewers. Same sentiment as above.
White Collar 10:00 on USA – Neal and Peter go deep into the jewelry smuggling business. Don’t care, I come here for the Kelly Kapowski.
Well that’s it! With whom do your affections lie tonight?
