This Week on TV – 5/9/10-5/15/10

Welcome to a new week of TV! The season is at the beginning of the end. Some of our favorites have their finales this week, including The Amazing Race on Sunday and Private Practice & The Vampire Diaries on Thursday. So I’m kind of blue! lol Anyway, let’s see what else is on, shall we? Leave me a comment or post on Twitter and let me know what YOU are looking forward to this week!

Sunday

Sunday is the season finale of 5 shows. First up is the finale of The Amazing Race on CBS at 8/7c.

Tonight is also the finales of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom on Animal Planet at 7/6c and Hoarding: Buried Alive on TLC at 10/9c.

The last finales tonight are Kimora: Life In the Fab Lane at 9/8c and Jerseylicious at 10/9c, both on the Style Network.

Tonight is a 1-hour 19 Kids & Counting special on TLC at 8/7c. The Duggar family prepares for baby Josie to come home from the hospital!

Tonight is also the 2-hour Jesse Stone: No Remorse TV movie on CBS at 9/8c, based on the best-selling book series by Robert B. Parker. Parker was one of my favorite authors ever, and I learned recently he passed away. Very sad. 🙁 Tom Selleck plays Jesse Stone, and does a fantastic job of it, as he has in all the previous Stone TV movies.

Finally, tonight is part 9 of 10 of The Pacific on HBO at 9/8c.

Monday

Monday is the season finale of Untamed & Uncut on Animal Planet at 9/8c.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Undateable on VH1 at 10/9c. VH1 shines a light on the long list of hilarious yet unwitting dating faux pas made all-too-often by men on Undateable: The Top 100 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won’t Be Dating or Having Sex. The short series exposes the deal breakers that send women running for the hills and leaving so many men wondering why they can’t get a date. It reveals the things men should never do, say or wear if they ever plan on snagging their dream girl. Celebrity guests comment and countdown the top 100 things that will keep men in single purgatory. Celebrity guests include Julia Allison, Simon Doonan, Fantasia, Spike Feresten, Bethenny Frankel, Karina Smirnoff, the “Jersey Shore” cast, “Pepa” Denton. For that friend who knows Star Wars trivia a bit too well or the cousin who “rocks” the leather pants or that guy who considers himself the master of the mullet, Undateable will show that women are really snickering at your odd sense of “expertise,” your lack of fashion know-how and your pride in the worst haircut known to humanity.

Evangeline Lilly (Lost) & Aaron Kelly (American Idol) are two of the guests on the Late Show with David Letterman, on CBS at 11:35/10:35c.

Geoff Stults (Happy Town, October Road) is one of the guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, on ABC at 1:36AM/12:36AMc.
