This Week on TV – 2/15/09-2/21/09

Welcome to a new week of TV! Several new shows this week as well as several season finales, so let’s get to it! Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday

Sunday is a new episode of The Girls Next Door on E! at 10/9c, followed by the season finale at 10:30/9:30c.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Eastbound & Down on HBO at 10/9c. Relief Pitcher Kenny Powers was poised to rule the Big Leagues, but two things got in the way: his fading fastball and his insufferable personality. After a spectacular career flame-out, Kenny came home to Shelby County, NC and picked up a job as a substitute gym teacher (mostly so his brother Dustin would stop threatening to kick him out). He’s spent every moment since then cashing in the last of his dying fame while plotting his inevitable comeback… one beer at a time. The show is the latest project to come out of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s comedic goldmine Gary Sanchez Productions, which also launched FunnyOrDie.com. Starring Danny McBride (Pineapple Express), Katy Mixon (Four Christmases), John Hawkes (Deadwood) and a host of other talented comedians, it was created by McBride along with two friends from film school: Jody Hill and Ben Best. The hilarious new series was shot on location in North Carolina and also includes a few guest appearances by Ferrell as a local car dealer with marvelous hair.

Tonight is also the season premiere of The Amazing Race on CBS at 8/7c and part 2 of 2 of the mini series XIII on NBC at 9/8c.

Friday

Friday is the series premiere of Mistresses on BBC America at 8/7c.

Going beyond lipstick and cashmere with its provocative and honest plot lines, Mistresses stars four of the UK’s leading actresses Sarah Parish (Viva Blackpool), Sharon Small (About a Boy, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries) Orla Brady (Shark, Nip/Tuck), and Shelley Conn (Innocence). Set in a world where friends have become the new family, Katie, Trudi, Siobhan and Jessica are four thirty-something women who met at college and are still good friends, but whose lives have taken very different turns. Each has a different experience of infidelity and love: devoted mistress, wronged wife, unwitting instigator, bed-hopper. Their tangled web of love and deceit envelops all four friends with life-changing results.
