This Week on TV – 10/21/12-10/27/12

Welcome to a new week of TV! It’s going to be a great week of television, even though baseball is still taking over FOX for most of the week and we have another political debate on Monday, meaning no new episodes of some fan favorites. There’s still plenty on, though, so check it out!

Don’t forget to comment or Tweet @tvismypacifier to let us know what YOU are planning to watch this week!

Tonight is the series premiere of Totally Clueless on MTV at 7/6c. In this new hidden camera game show, a team of improvisers put unknowing contestants through a series of awkward and increasingly outrageous pranks. The sooner the random marks figure out they are on a TV show, the more money they win. In each daily episode, a team of stellar improv actors play a variety of memorable characters and take contestants on a surreal and hilarious hidden camera rollercoaster ride. As seemingly harmless encounters escalate and snowball into twisted and over the top scenarios, the potential cash prize decreases. This fall, it pays to have a clue.

Tonight is the backdoor pilot special for Mockingbird Lane on NBC at 8/7c. The show is a new reimagined version of the classic 1960s comedy “The Munsters,” now as a visually spectacular one-hour drama with a darker edge and tone. The cast includes Jerry O’Connell (The Defenders) as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi (Arrested Development) as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard (United States of Tara, The Riches) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D) as Eddie, and Charity Wakefield (The Raven) as Marilyn.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Health Inspectors on Food Network at 10:30/9:30c. Restaurant consultant Ben Vaughn lends his expertise to restaurants across the country in desperate need of a health upgrade in the new series. An unexpected visit from a restaurant health inspector can shut down an establishment instantly if they are not up to code. Ben uses his years of experience in the restaurant industry to assess kitchens from top to bottom, leaving no stone, or stove, unturned. From high-end restaurants to small cafés, Ben holds the owners and staff accountable for the messes they’ve made and shows them what they need to do to pass inspection and stay in business.
