Tonight is the series premiere of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo on TLC at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c. Take an inside look into life with “Honey Boo Boo” where the six-year-old pageant sensation proves that she is more than just a beauty queen.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Go On on NBC at 11:04/10:04c. (The 2nd new episode won’t air for about a month.) Matthew Perry (Friends, Mr. Sunshine) stars as Ryan King, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan’s alpha-male boss, Stephen, played by John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle), has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air. A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for “life change,” where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss. On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worst. Ryan’s total lack of interest in “the healing process” proves distracting and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren, played by Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti (The Playboy Club). Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn’t really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on. Also starring are Tony Award-Winner Julie White (Transformers) as Anne, Bill Cobbs (The Muppets, Night at the Museum) as George, and Suzy Nakamura (Dodgeball) as Yolanda.
