I Can Dig It! (Premiere Edition)

Finally! The Olympics are over!  Which can only mean one thing: new episodes of TV shows again!


So even though favorites such as the CSI franchise and sitcoms are coming back, I’ve decided that the 3 shows to watch this week are all new premiere shows (as well as one season premiere of a show that has already been on for 2 seasons).

Soooo…let’s get started!

1. Parenthood   Series Premiere Tuesday  10 p.m. on NBC

A remake of the 1989 movie of the same name, this Ron Howard-produced show looks like it may be a promising hit. The show basically revolves around a single mother who moves back home to deal with her “extended, colorful family.”

The cast is peppered with entertainment veterans, such as Craig T. Nelson, Bonnie Bedelia, Peter Krause, Monica Potter and Lauren Graham.

Michael Ausiello, of Entertainment Weekly, already tweeted:

Watching 2nd ep of PARENTHOOD and loving it more than 1st. And I REALLY liked the 1st.

2. The Marriage Ref   Series Premiere  Thursday at 10 p.m. on NBC

 From the comedic genius mind of Jerry Seinfeld comes The Marriage Ref.

At first, I wasn’t really sure what this show was about. But after seeing about 100 promos and doing my research, I found that this show, hosted by the hi-larious Tom Papa, includes airing real life disagreements (i.e. fights) between real life married couples. There will be a celebrity judge panel – first episodes contains Jerry, Alec Baldwin and Kelly Ripa.

This show is based on the premise that for the first time a 3rd party will ultimately decide a winner between marital fights. I figure this show to be the perfect one for married couples to get together and watch every week. Why? To learn what to do right next time!

3. The Real Housewives of New York City  Season 3 Premiere  Thursday at 11 p.m. on Bravo

This was really the first “Real Housewives” show that I got interested in – even though it is technically the second Real Housewives show to come out.

Why? Simple really. I love New York, and I love the idea of New York socialite women tearing each other to shreads.


The cast contains Alex McCord, Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Ramona Singer.

Everyone has their fights, and their make ups, and their hateful words, and that’s what makes this show such a great guilty pleasure.
