Here’s the best in reality TV this coming week – because Sharon and Howie outvoted Howard and wanted to see it:
Monday: The Bachelorette (ABC, 8 p.m.): The final ten plus Emily are in London to act in Romeo and Juliet, hopefully with Ryan as Mercutio. Also, this is the week we finally get to see what made Emily mad enough to drop an f-bomb (maybe she’s been reading the tabloid stories about her).
Tia & Tamera (Style, 8 p.m.): The Sister, Sister sisters are back for a second season, with Tia dealing with the usual new mom issues, and Tamera trying to keep her hand in show biz while spending part of her time outside L.A.
Extreme Couponing (TLC, 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.): One of the profiled couponers this week is a 14-year-old girl. She needs an age-appropriate hobby that won’t put her on either this show, or 16 and Pregnant.
Tuesday: Barter Kings (A&E, 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.): This new show promises to be a good partner with Storage Wars – another half hour that aims to prove that everyone can make a mint off the crap lying around their house.
Teen Mom (MTV, 10 p.m.): The last season with the original cast premieres with Amber preparing to go to rehab. Gosh, I wonder how that will turn out? Also, Maci prepares her little one for daycare. Ah, they grow up so fast. Both babies AND moms.
Wednesday: Restaurant: Impossible (Food Network, 10 p.m.): Robert Irvine will probably be less of a barking pill this week, since he is undertaking a mission at the behest of Michelle Obama.
Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew (MTV, 10 p.m.): The season finale is here – do you realize there have been seven seasons of this? Few reality show champions have done as well in the real world as JabbaWockeeZ, but you really never hear anyone talking about ABDC.
Thursday: Don’t Be Tardy For the Wedding (Bravo, 9 p.m.): The most instructive thing about this series (spoiler alert: they do get married) has been proving once and for all that Kim Zolciak may be the most ridiculous person on earth. But if she stops with the wigs, I might reconsider.
The Pauly D Project (MTV, 10:30 p.m.): The first (only?) season ends with Pauly contemplating what the future holds. If he had known then that his future would include The Choice, he might have run into the surf and never come out.
Friday: Randy to the Rescue (TLC, 10 p.m.): Fashion expert Randy Fenoli travels the country handling bridal fashion emergencies, with the premiere episode set in the bride-intensive town of Las Vegas. You know, if TLC combined their wedding stuff with Sister Wives, they might have the most powerful reality franchise of all time!
Sunday: Keeping Up With the Kardashians (E, 9 p.m.): Kendall and Kylie make a mess on the carpet, which I sure hope doesn’t mean what it would mean if they were puppies. Also, Kim and Scott socialize, and Kris bumps into someone she once had an affair with.
Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo, 10 p.m.): Caroline’s daughter comes to a decision regarding her dieting, while Jacqueline has her own daughter issues regarding the mega-pathetic Ashley. Also, Teresa talks to a bankruptcy attorney, finally.
