What’s new tonight:
Man Up! (ABC) Series Debut: It’s not as bad as its lead-in, Tim Allen’s gawdawful Last Man Standing, but Man Up! is still shit—so it’ll easily hold on to the same audience of morons who made LMS a hit debut last week. But, if you really want to see the definitive comedy about male bonding in the modern world, watch FX’s far-superior The League on Thursdays and skip this waste of Teri Polo, Dan Fogler and a perfectly good exclamation point.
Parenthood (NBC) T-Rex Arms Alert: Cee Lo Green drops in because … uh … NBC owns him now, thanks to The Voice? Or is it related to Adam and Crosby’s new recording studio? Let’s go with that. Meanwhile, something happens to someone else in Parenthood that’ll make you cry. Guaranteed.
2011 Scream Awards (Spike) The best sci-fi/horror/fantasy awards show on basic cable brings out the stars, like Robert Downey Jr., Anne Hathaway, Nicholas Cage, Pee-Wee Herman, Darth Vader, Harry Potter and more! Some even real!
Sons of Anarchy (FX) Accept no tiny-screen substitutes: The original Sons of Anarchy TV Party is tonight at Brewvies (677 S. 200 West, 21 years), free on the big screen at 8 pm. It probably won’t be as crowded as The Walking Dead was on Sunday, just guessing.
Also new tonight:
Last Man Standing, Dancing With the Stars, Body of Proof (ABC); NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Unforgettable (CBS); The Biggest Loser (NBC); The X Factor (Fox); 90210, Ringer (The CW); Tosh.0, Workaholics (Comedy Central); The Rachel Zoe Project, Mad Fashion (Bravo); 19 Kids & Counting, The Little Couple (TLC); Gene Simmons Family Jewels (A&E); I Used to Be Fat, Chelsea Settles (MTV); The Onion News Network (IFC)
This is what you’re In! for with Man Up!
