Wednesday

Wednesday is the series premiere of Lock ‘n Load on Showtime at 8/7c. In America, people from all walks of life decide to buy guns: for home protection, for sport, for their growing collections the reasons are as diverse as the customers. The six-part, half-hour reality series offers viewers a fly-on-the-wall look at “The Shootist” gun store in Englewood, Colorado, where expert gunslinger Josh T. Ryan is always ready to close a sale as customers, both male and female and of all ages, steadily stream in. The series offers viewers a politically neutral peek into this family-owned gun store’s daily interactions between Ryan, the inherently charming and knowledgeable salesman, and the store’s most fascinating customers. The hidden camera, revealed after the transaction is completed, insures a particularly candid and revealing take on why we buy them.

Thursday

Thursday is the season finales of Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory at 9/8c and Nitro Circus at 9:30/8:30c, both on MTV.

It’s also the season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo at 10/9c.

Tonight is the series premiere of Ultimate Parkour Challenge on MTV at 10/9c. The essence of Parkour is a sport with virtually no limits. Athletes run as efficiently as possible from point “A” to point “B” but unlike a track and field race, Parkour is performed on any and every environment. Walls, cars, stairs, railings, rooftops and ten-foot gaps between five-story buildings, force runners to leap, roll, climb, vault and fly, using the obstacles in their way to increase speed. The show captures the essence of the Parkour movement with a new special event sports competition that will thrill audiences as eight of the World’s best Parkour athletes defy gravity, showcasing seemingly superhuman skills in an easy to understand competitive format. Three rounds of competition will ultimately crown one winner with $10,000 and title of the Ultimate Parkour Champion.

Tonight is also the series premiere of The Jeff Dunham Show on Comedy Central at 9/8c. This new half-hour comedy-reality show stars ventriloquist-comedian Jeff Dunham. Building upon the breakout success of his Comedy Central stand-up specials, the new show brings his beloved characters, including Walter, Peanut, Bubba J and Achmed the Dead Terrorist, to a live studio audience and also places them in real world scenarios in and around Los Angeles.

Friday

Friday is the 72-minute series premiere of White Collar on USA at 10/9c. White Collar is about the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay). When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail, Neal suggests an alternate plan: He’ll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can’t be found on the right side of the law. It stars Matthew Bomer (Chuck, Tru Calling), Tiffani Thiessen (Saved By the Bell, Fastlane), Tim DeKay (Tell Me You Love Me, Carnivale), Willie Garson (Sex and the City, John from Cincinnati) & Marsha Thomason (Easy Money).
