This week, a movie finally tops the list in this rather slow week, even though there were are a couple of television premieres this week. I also wanted to add a show that has me unexpectedly addicted, and I think you should watch too. Without further interruption, here’s the list!
1. Friends with Benefits
Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis’ latest flick seems to be the usual romantic comedy, and sounds basically identical to Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman’s ‘No Strings Attached,’ but this one is different: they look like they have true chemistry. Early reviews of the film are very positive, citing the chemistry and punchlines toward rom-com stereotypes. This film is looking like a comedy winner, just like another comedy that hit the silver screen this year (Bridesmaides).
2. Degrassi: Now or Never – Season 11 Premiere
The long-running cult hit returns to the states on TeenNick, where it begins fresh off it’s first Emmy nomination. I tuned out after the telenovela-themed season that occurred last summer, but the weekday theme is back! I usually catch up (a marathon of the fall season is airing all day today on TeenNick) and anyone can jump right in, and this will tackle previous generation’s issues, including a pregnancy. Season 11 premieres tonight at 9PM on TeenNick.
3. Jersey Shore Italy (Season 4) Sneak Peek!
Ready to see Snooki crash—on a cop car?! Or what about a possible fight between The Situation and Ronnie? Well, you might get a glimpse as MTV will air the first trailer for Season 4 of Jersey Shore tonight during a new episode of the newly-renewed Teen Wolf.
4. Awkward. – Series Premiere
MTV has has tried so hard to score with a teen audience to have the next cult hit, and the closest they’ve gotten to it is the previously mentioned show above (Jersey Shore). Their latest scripted effort was poorly marketed, but could deliver an audience over time, but the shows future is still unclear, and it hasn’t even premiered yet. All you need to know is that there is a female lead, and that it takes place in a high school, just like every other teenage scripted drama.
5. Big Brother
I always looked at this show as a dumb, poorly made reality show, and maybe it still is (what’s with those 1999 graphics?) but it’s insanely addicting. In all the TV I watch, I still find time for this show, which airs twice a week. There’s constant backstabbing, alliances, and everything I loved about Survivor back in it’s prime. It aired last night, and the live (yes, live!) elimination will take place this Wednesday at 8PM on CBS.
That’s a wrap! Come back next week for an all new Most Wanted List!
