Monday

Monday is the season finale of I Love Money on VH1 at 9/8c.

Following that is the series premiere of New York Goes To Work on VH1 at 10/9c. The acting biz is hard and unpredictable. In fact, most fledgling stars have to pick up a side job to pay the bills. Tiffany Pollard, aka New York, is no exception. Auditions come and go, but real parts are few and far between and Tiffany has found her bank account to be about as resilient as her ability to stay away from a Carl’s Jr. Late Night Drive Thru. This girl needs a J-O-B! Unfortunately, Tiffany’s job experience is a little less than the status quo for a woman her age. Lets face it, other than bitch slapping, shit talking and downing gallons of ranch dressing, Tiffany Pollard is only good at one thing… making television. So if she’s going to get a job, she’s going to need a different approach to employment. That’s where VH1 and 51Minds step in. Together they have proposed a plan to get Tiffany working. Over the next several weeks, New York will let America decide the jobs she will do. Each week, the viewing public will pick from a list of three possible jobs for their favorite girl and vote using texts from their cellular phone. After America chooses a job for New York, it will then be time for her to go to work. She’ll tackle all aspects of her new employment. Her motivation? Money. If she can impress her new employer, she’ll receive a $5,000 bonus. If she quits, fails, or gets fired, she receives nothing. And America will send her on her way to her next gig. But these jobs aren’t going to be easy. We’re going to make this diva go to work!

Tonight is also 4 new episodes of Roommates on ABC Family, starting at 9/8c, then 9:30/8:30c, 10/9c and ending with the season finale at 10:30/9:30c. Whew, that’s A LOT of Roommates in one night!

Thursday

Thursday is the season finale of Heli-Loggers on TLC at 10/9c.

It’s also the season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo at 9/8c.

Following that is the series premiere of The Fashion Show on Bravo at 10/9c. Fifteen professional designers will compete in this fashion creative competition series for a chance to have their designs sold in the retail market and win a $125,000 prize. Internationally acclaimed designer Isaac Mizrahi shares hosting duties with four-time Grammy Award-winning performer and actress Kelly Rowland. Mizrahi and Rowland will also serve as judges alongside fashion luminary and Senior Vice President of IMG Fashion, Fern Mallis. Each week the designers will be put to the test and will have to face off in two challenges – the Harper’s Bazaar Mini Challenge, judged by the magazine’s Special Projects Director Laura Brown, and the elimination challenge. In the end, America will choose which contestant will have a clothing line available for retail and win the $125,000 prize.

Finally, tonight is the 1-hour ABC special, Michael J. Fox: Adventures of An Incurable Optimist at 10:01/9:01c. Michael J. Fox, the former star of ABC’s comedy hit Spin City, makes an emotional return to the network as the acclaimed television and movie star investigates the nature of optimism. In 1998 Fox publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease and, two years later, made the difficult decision to walk away from a highly successful acting career with credits including the top-rated NBC comedy series Family Ties and the blockbuster Back to the Future movies. His triumphant spirit and positive attitude, considering his daily fight against the symptoms of a complex and incurable neurological syndrome, may make you wonder: How does he remain an “incurable optimist”? Fox travels across the globe to explore the enduring strength of hope. He talks to both famous and everyday people, venturing everywhere from the Far East to President Barack Obama’s inspiring inauguration — all for a one-hour special.
