This week happens to be a big one. This Most Wanted list is the most eventful in weeks, and is starting out August with a bang. For starters, one of the biggest reality shows ever returns! Plus, a week dedicated to a certain big fish begins. Also, a big collaboration album, a television convention, and a thrilling freshman finale are all on this weeks list, down below!
1. Jersey Shore – Season 4 Premiere
It’s baaack! The ratings juggernaut that only rivaled American Idol—yes, AMERICAN IDOL!—returns for it’s fourth season, and from the looks of the promos, it could be the craziest season ever. And that’s saying a lot. There will be a lot of the usual (sex, partying, drinking, and fighting) but something that has never happened will occur: fighting between male cast members. That I want to see, especially because Mike (The Situation) will be one of the two fist-fighting. This season looks to be good!
2. Jay Z & Kanye West – Watch the Throne
The long-awaited collaboration between Jay Z and Kanye West is finally here, and two of hip-hop’s finest could set a big first-week sales for Watch the Throne, set to be available early on iTunes this week.
3. Television Critics’ Association Awards
Right before the Emmy Awards season begins to heat up, the Television Critics Association hosts a press tour with many cable, premium and broadcast networks showcasing their upcoming shows. Also, right after their press tour, they also host an award show. No one hypes this broadcast, but many say this is a good indication of who might win at the Emmys, and that’s definitely a reason to watch. All of TV’s finest will be in attendance at the 27th Annual Television Critics Association Awards (TCA Awards), taking place August 6th with host–get this–Nick Offerman (from NBC’s Parks and Recreation
Discovery takes great pride in airing this annual event, where the schedule is dominated by programming of the fierce and large fish. Now entering its 25th year, Shark Week never seems to get old to Discovery viewers, and it definitely shook me (refer to this tweet.) Shark Week has takes place all week on Discovery, with new programming airing during primetime.
5. Falling Skies – Season Finale
TNT’s epic new series has been doing pretty great in the ratings, and has viewers hooked in the alien invasion that is Falling Skies. I haven’t seen any episodes beyond the pilot, but I’ve been told that I’m missing out on a very great show. Hope I catch up by this Sunday!
That’s a wrap! There’s tons of other things to look out for this week, like ABC Family’s Switched at Birth, which airs its penultimate 2011 episode tonight, and Oxygen’s The Glee Project, which had a shocking contestant exit last night and will air another episode this Sunday. Also, make sure to watch Big Brother! I keep refraining from saying I’m officially addicted, but I don’t think that can hold on much longer! Make sure to come back back next week for another edition of the Most Wanted List!
