TV Tonight: Glee, Raising Hope, Big Movie Mouth-Off, SOA


This just in: ABC has canceled The Whole Truth, which was a Wednesday-night legal drama starring Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney. You’ve never seen it, so you won’t miss it. ---

What’s on tonight:
Glee (Fox) Mr. Shue forces the kids to perform The Rocky Horror Picture Show so he can get into Emma’s pants—dumb move with dreamy John Stamos playing dreamy Eddie. Meanwhile, those of us who were sick of “The Time Warp” 20 years ago can relive the annoyance all over again, with only this GQ shot of Lea Michele for comfort. Fair trade.

Raising Hope (Fox) One-Hour Halloween Episode: Actually, only one of the two back-to-back Raising Hope eps is Halloween-themed; the other is just bumping Running Wilde closer to cancellation. Still, you can’t beat the comedy gold of Virginia (Martha Plimpton) taking Maw-Maw (Cloris Leachman) Trick-or-Treating. Sorry, Will Arnett—love ya on The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, though!

The Big Movie Mouth-Off (Comcast Ch. 6) Still waiting for it to show up in the On Demand section, but now the locally-produced Big Movie Mouth-Off (or, as I like to call it, The Big Money Movie—look it up, kids), hosted by ex-Deseret News movie critic Jeff Vice and current SLUG film reviewer Jimmy Martin, runs nightly on Comcast (or Xfinity, or whatever the hell it is now) Channel 6 at 11 pm. For the full Big Movie Mouth-Off story, check out the Oct. 1 edition of Gavin’s Underground.

Sons of Anarchy (FX) Best. Season. Yet. SAMCRO hits Ireland in an epic 90-minute (!) episode loaded with violence, “Where’s my son?!” emoting, more violence, borrowed bikes and unintelligible Irish accents. Why 90 minutes? Are you going to tell Kurt Sutter that he has to bring it in under an hour? Didn’t think so.

Also tonight:
No Ordinary Family, Dancing With the Stars, Detroit 187 (ABC); NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Good Wife (CBS); The Biggest Loser, Parenthood (NBC); Flipping Out (Bravo); Stargate Universe, Caprica (SyFy); The Bad Girls Club (Oxygen)
