What’s new tonight:
Weeds (Showtime) Season Premiere: Doing the time-warp, Weeds Season 7 picks up three years after America’s Worst Mom (Mary-Louise Parker) has served jail time for murder (taking the rap for her son, so … Best-ish Mom?). Now living on probation in a monitored New York halfway house, with the Botwin clan flying back from exile in Copenhagen, it’s time for Nancy to put the band (i.e. pot business) back together! Oh, and it looks like Nancy made a special “friend” in the Graybar Hotel (see preview clip below).
The Big C (Showtime) Season Premiere: There’s still a glimmer of hope for the Laura-Linney-has-cancer series that went from Showtime cool to Lifetime lame in less than 12 episodes last year. The good news: The first three episodes of Season 2 recapture the spark. The bad news: They still have nine more to blow it.
Law & Order: Los Angeles (NBC) It’s Still On: Seriously, how many episodes did NBC make before they pulled the plug? And how did they not see it coming with show blurbs like this? “Detectives Winters and Jaruszalski's investigation of a birthday party where all the guests were beaten to death leads them to believe the killings were drug-related.” No shit, really?
Also new tonight:
The Bachelorette, Extreme Makeover: Fatso Edition (ABC); MasterChef (Fox); The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Switched at Birth (ABC Family); The Real Housewives of Orange County, Platinum Hit (Bravo); Kate Plus 8 (TLC); Basketball Wives, Single Ladies (VH1); Teen Wolf (MTV); RuPaul’s Drag U (Logo)
Preview: Nancy’s been in the, er, hole for a looong time on Weeds.
