What’s new tonight:
The Voice (NBC) Series Debut: Another talent show … great. You’ve got a garage-sale Ryan Seacrest in host Carson Daly, and the judges aren’t even called “judges,” they’re “coaches.” Also Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and the other two “coaches,” whoever the hell they are, turn their backs to the singers and judge (coach?) them on their voices alone—hence, The Voice. NBC calls this an “innovative format.” American Idol’s lawyers probably call it “not yet actionable.”
Glee (Fox) 90-Minute Lady Gaga-fest: In another death knell for music, tonight’s Glee is all about Lady Gaga, “being yourself” and the long-overdue outing of Mr. Shue (Matthew Morrison). At least two of these are true—and isn’t every Glee episode about “being yourself”? All’s I know is, Traffic Light is getting bumped tonight because of this bullshit.
Body of Proof (ABC) Dr. Megan (Dana Delany) is forced to slip back into high society (the clique, not the porn mag) to solve the murder of a magazine editor. Then again, Delany in the pages of High Society would be more believable than anyone noticing a dead magazine editor. Just sayin.’
Also new tonight:
Dancing With the Stars (ABC); The Biggest Loser (NBC); Raising Hope (Fox); One Tree Hill, Hellcats (The CW); Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen (Syfy); My Life as Liz (MTV); Pregnant In Heels (Bravo); Sports Show With Norm MacDonald (Comedy Central); Top Shot (History); The Deadliest Catch (Discovery); Conan (TBS)
Preview: Dana Delany goes undercover (sort of) in tonight's Body of Proof ...
