It's no secret that I watch a lot of TV, but I don't usually do it in eight-hour blocks! This weekend, though, I decided to take a break from the world and I spent eight hours straight watching the Point Pleasant marathon on Chiller. No computer, no phone, just me and the daughter of darkness all afternoon. I followed that up with a couple of the best episodes of Twilight Zone such as Monsters are Due on Maple Street and Nightmare at 20,000 Feet and after all that, I went to the beach. Hey, even a TV fanatic like me needs a break now and again.
It's summertime! Which means its still pretty slim pickings when it comes to new shows on TV, but there are a few including Kyra's Closer and Jillian's Bachelorette. Let's take a look:
Tonight's top TV picks:
There are only four men left on The Bachelorette, Ed, Kipty, Reid and Wes. Tonight, Jillian takes them all on trip to romantic Spain where they'll learn to Flamenco dance, enjoy a bike ride through the city and enjoy a picnic with handpicked ingredients from the gourmet shops. It will be an incredible night, but at the end, one bachelor will be headed home. Who will it be?
Watch The Bachelorette at 8:00 on ABC.
Brenda investigates the murder of a former gang member but the case isn't as open and shut as it appears to be.
The clues lead her back to Father Jack and the Crenshaw Community Center and a neighborhood already in turmoil begins to fall apart. It's up to Brenda to prove that one person really can make a difference but it won't be easy.
Watch The Closer at 9:00 pm on TNT.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent
When you're a lonely, single mom looking for love, it's easy to fall for the charms of a con man. Only this one is after an armored car carrying millions and you know that's going to end in murder.
Watch Law & Order: Criminal Intent at 9:00 on NBC.
