What’s new tonight:
Body of Proof (ABC) Season Finale: Not that there was any danger of a cliffhanger, but the Dana Delany crima drama (think Quincy meets House, with better legs) will return next season in all its MILF-tastic glory. Even though Delany could easily carry the show on her own (and did, for most of its short premiere season), costar Jeri Ryan recently stepped up her game and damned near turned Body of Proof into a two-woman show. Now, if they’d just get rid of the caricature Flustered Black Guy whose character seems like it was originally written as a Sassy Black Woman.
NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) Season Finales: Too bad two of the most-watched shows on TV aren’t driving up the numbers of …
The Good Wife (CBS) Season Finale: One of the best dramas on network television, with some of the strongest, most realistic female characters in the entire medium. Naturally, The Good Wife is teetering on the brink of cancellation—maybe CBS should re-title it NCIS: Julianna Margulies.
Raising Hope, Breaking In (Fox) Season Finales: It’s present continuous verb night! Fox is giving Breaking In one last chance to prove itself worthy of un-cancellation, which means the last episode of Traffic Light will air …? Anyway: Fox has already renewed Raising Hope—aka My Name Isn’t Earl—for a second season.
One Tree Hill, Hellcats (The CW) Season Finales: So, One Tree Hill is still on. In other news: While cheerleader dramedy Hellcats has gone off the rails in the latter half of Season 1, it’s still worth saving—if only to stick it to those Glee twits. Do the right(ish) thing, CW.
Also new tonight:
Dancing With the Stars (ABC); The Biggest Loser, The Voice (NBC); Glee (Fox); Tosh.0, Sports Show With Norm Macdonald (Comedy Central); Pregnant in Heels (Bravo); 16 & Pregnant (MTV); The Deadliest Catch (Discovery); Conan (TBS)
Preview: Sadly, this may be the last we’ll see of my beloved Hellcats. And they finally got back to the cheer routines, too … sigh …
