With Memorial Day behind us, that means the Spring TV season has officially ended. Today, we move into the Summer TV season. It’s a busy schedule tonight with the return of a reality show favorite, the premiere of Jillian Michaels’ new weight loss show and “Glee” is down to just two more episodes for its premiere season.
On TV Tonight
“America’s Got Talent” - The variety/talent competition show is back for a fifth season as acts from around the country compete for a one million dollar prize and the chance at a Las Vegas show. David Hasselhoff is out as judge and “Deal or No Deal’s” Howie Mandel is filling his seat. Howie told me he has been watching the series at home from his couch, so moving to the swivel chairs (moving them???) made perfect sense. NBC, 8 PM ET/PT.
View video from Howie’s first day on the job HERE.
Of course, Howie is a known germaphobe. How did Sharon Osbourne deal with this on the show? She taunted him, of course. Check out our interview about it here HERE.
“Losing It With Jillian” - “The Biggest Loser’s” drill sergeant personal trainer, Jillian Michaels, gets her own show. She’ll move in with families and have one week to help them transform their lives and lead them on the path to healthy eating and weight loss. Cue the tears. NBC, 8 PM ET/PT.
