The CW pulls out a new reality show that delivers an ultimatum to all those waffling boyfriends. Hitched or Ditched is the perfect post-He’s Just Not That Into You reality competition.
As for Memorial Day weekend TV, I found myself drawn to Clean House and their Messiest Home in the Country specials. Why do we watch these shows? I assume it’s because it makes us feel better about the dust bunnies under our own beds knowing that other people’s homes are much worse! What really fascinated me was the follow-up special they did a year after they filmed the first messiest home. Though the people hadn’t completely gone back to their old ways, they had no qualms about voicing their regrets about doing the show in the first place. Give them another couple of years and I bet all that hard work will be undone.
No more Clean House for me. Now it’s time to focus in on all of the new summer shows that are coming our way.
What’s on tonight?
Fox premieres an unusual medical drama set in the mental health services ward of a Los Angeles hospital. Dr. Jack Gallagher (Chris Vance) is a radically unorthodox psychiatrist and he’s in charge now. He turns the institution upside down as he employs some unconventional methods for treating his patients.
If you love House, you’re sure to love this fascinating new series.
Watch the premiere of Mental at 9:00 on Fox.
Hitched or Ditched
On Hitched or Ditched each week — the couples will be put through a revealing challenge round while planning their wedding, which should be challenge enough. At the end of the series run, each man will have to make the big decision. It’s time buddy, either get hitched or get ditched!
Watch the premiere of Hitched or Ditched at 9:00 on The CW.
The Little Couple
Picking up where the successful special Little People Just Married left off, Bill, a successful businessman, and Jen, a pediatrician, who are both under four feet tall, will share their unique perspectives on life, love, and marriage. If you think you have a lot to deal with, just witness a day in the life of these busy newlyweds.
Watch the premiere of The Little Couple on TLC at 10:00.
Also premiering tonight, Man Caves on DIY, Science of the Movies on Science Channel and Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood on Oxygen.

Bravo has announced that their next batch of Real Housewives will come from Washington DC.
Twitter may become a TV series — a very short series, I assume. LOL!
