American Chopper Comes to the End of the Road Comes

American Chopper is riding off into the sunset for good. The TLC reality series is closing shop after six seasons, with the series finale airing Thursday, Feb. 11 at 9/8c. Chopper premiered in 2003 on the Discovery Channel before moving to TLC in 2008. The series followed founder Paul Teutul, Sr., and his son, Paul Jr. (better known as Paulie or Junior) and the drama behind the scenes at their custom motorcycle shop, Orange County Choppers. "The Teutuls will always be a part of the Discovery family and we congratulate them on a tremendously successful series run," TLC said in a statement. Paul Teutul, Sr., said he anticipated "another two or three years" of the show in an October interview with the New York Daily News. However, Paul Jr., left the company - and the series - briefly earlier this season and was then sued by his father over company stock in December, according to TMZ. Will you miss American Chopper?

Tonight's TV Hot List: Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010 - Featured

* Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew (10/9c VH1) Watching celebrities in trouble is a guilty pleasure for many TV fans, and Dr. Drew gives those viewers their fix as he welcomes a new batch of famous faces to the drudgery of detox and the rigors of rehab. Substance abusers featured in Season 3 include former madam Heidi Fleiss, country singer Mindy McCready, pageant winner Kari Ann Peniche, actress Mackenzie Phillips, former NBA star Dennis Rodman, actor Tom Sizemore and headbanger Mike Starr. * BCS Championship Game (8:30/7:30c ABC) After preparing for a full month (enough time to stage a four-round playoff, as BCS bashers would gladly point out), Alabama (13-0) and Texas (13-0) are ready to collide in scenic Pasadena in what may not be the only meeting of undefeated teams in the Bowl Championship Series, but it is the only one that awards the winners a crystal football declaring them national champions. If defense wins championships, then Nick Saban's Crimson Tide may have the edge, as a group led by tackle Terrence Cody looks to corral Texas senior QB Colt McCoy as effectively as it shut down Florida's Tim Tebow in the SEC title game. Sophomore Mark Ingram heads Bama's ground attack while hoping to reverse the curse (1-6 record) on Heisman Trophy winners in this game. * Bear Whisperer (8/7c Animal Planet ) No good can come from unintentional interaction between humans and bears, especially in a resort town like Mammoth Lakes, Calif. Every summer black bears come out of hibernation, hungry and looking for a quick meal, and they stumble into this lakeside vacation town full with tourists. Neither party is happy about this except for, maybe, Steve Searles. In this special, viewers get to observe Searles' special gift with bears, which comes in handy as he works to protect both species from potentially tragic outcomes. * American Chopper (9/8c TLC ) It's been more than four months since Paul Jr. last stepped foot inside his father's garage. Now he finally returns to OCC, but don't expect this trip to signal the end of the long-running Teutul family feud. Tensions among the warring clan are as high as ever, and it seems that the father-son divide is only getting worse. Rather than focus on the family drama, the rest of the OCC crew stays busy building a one-of-a-kind "wheelchair chopper" for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. * The Real Housewives of Orange County (10/9c Bravo ) After taking a holiday break, the soapy reality show returns, storming into 2010 and squeezing more tart juice from Orange County. This pulp non-fiction delves into the life of Vicki, who, in the wake of a sour year, concocts a lovey-dovey surprise for her husband. Then there's Alexis, who readies her family for church. Elsewhere, Tamra and Simon's reflection on their recent Florida trip takes a stormy turn when they argue over Gretchen. Gretchen herself goes center stage when she takes Lynne's daughter shopping.

Tonight's TV Hot List: Thursday, Dec. 17, 2009 - Featured

* SNL Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas (8/7c NBC) The irreverent late-night show kicks up the Yuletide yuks in this very merry special featuring holiday-themed shticks and skits selected from the show's 35-year history. Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin make appearances, and both are seen in vintage bits - Baldwin in the classic "Delicious Dish and the Schweddy Balls" and Martin in "A Holiday Wish." Headlining the show is standout SNL player Kristen Wiig as her recurring character Gilly, that classroom troublemaker who's essentially Annie from the dark depths of hell. * Survivor: Samoa (8/7c CBS) Only six players are left and Russell seems to be firmly in control, but now that everyone knows he's a millionaire it could prove to be his downfall. Or maybe it will be his arrogant behavior. Wearing the hidden immunity idol at tribal council? Come on! But as the game winds down (the two-hour finale is Sunday), Russell's biggest threat just might be his strongest ally - Jaison. Can't wait to see what happens. * The Mentalist (10/9c CBS) Tonight's case is a home run, but it's not exactly the kind that Jane was expecting. While investigating the murder of a baseball scout, he gets hit in the head with a baseball, causing his thoughts to rush back to his childhood. The memories, recalled in flashbacks, focus on Jane's relationship with his father (Nick Chinlund). * American Chopper (9/8c TLC ) One important step on the road to recovery is making amends, and now that Mikey's completed his stay in rehab, he's ready to do just that. Could this be the turning point that will help the feuding Teutuls put things into perspective? For Mikey's sake, we hope so. Back at the shop, the OCC crew works on a custom chopper for champion pool player Jeanette Lee that's inspired by her moniker, the "Black Widow." * Thursday Night Football (8/7c NFL Network) Opening day in Indianapolis proved to be very special for the Colts in September. In a 14-12 victory over Jacksonsville, Peyton Manning tied the great Johnny Unitas for the franchise record for victories; new head coach Jim Caldwell earned his first victory; and Indy wideout Reggie Wayne caught 10 passes for 162 yards. While the Colts are running away with the division in the AFC, the Jaguars remain in the running for a wild-card berth in the playoffs as they host the Colts tonight. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Thursday, June 11, 2009

* So You Think You Can Dance (9 pm/ET Fox) Only Mary Murphy truly knows what her Hot Tamale Train is all about, but tonight's first results show of the season will find two of the Top 20 dancers getting off at the next station. Before that happens, however, the bottom three couples will dance for their TV lives in solo routines, and if that's not enough sizzle for you, rapper Sean Kingston performs "Fire Burning" from his second album, Tomorrow. * American Chopper (9 pm/ET TLC) The Teutuls are no strangers to family conflict, so they should have plenty in common with tonight's featured client: Jon Gosselin, star of Jon & Kate plus 8 and recent tabloid target. Jon has commissioned OCC to build him a custom chopper, so Senior, Junior and Mikey take a trip to the Gosselins' Pennsylvania home to get a better idea of what he wants. And the guys get on Kate's good side by bringing her a pink scooter of her own. * She's Got the Look (9 pm/ET TV Land) The search for modeling's new face - over-35 division - is back for a second season of smiles, tears, laughs and fears. Host Kim Alexis guides 20 women through a grueling competition that rewards the winner with an exclusive contract and a photo spread in Self magazine, and as an extra incentive, also comes with a $100,000 prize. Tonight the hopefuls move into the New York City loft they'll share for the next seven weeks, and begin their quest to redefine what it means to be a "model" citizen. * Raising Sextuplets (10 pm/ET WE) There's a new family of multiples in town. Spun from WE's 2008 special OMG! Sextuplets!, this series follows first-time parents Bryan and Jenny Masche as they wade through the chaos of parenting six toddlers. In tonight's premiere, just giving the dog a bath turns into an ordeal for the gang. Jenny is also preparing to return to work and training for a marathon. Bryan, on the other hand, hasn't sprung back into shape as quickly as his wife and struggles to shed sympathy weight he packed on during Jenny's pregnancy. * Tosh.0 (10 pm/ET Comedy Central) Last week's premiere gave us a taste of what to expect from comic Daniel Tosh's new show, which uses the boob tube to show us what YouTube - and everything else on the Internet - has to offer. OK, so there weren't any sneezing pandas, but there are nine more episodes to go. And if you thought the Afro Ninja's Web Redemption was touching last week, wait until Miss Teen South Carolina takes another stab at world geography. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List for Thursday, April 16, 2009

* MLB Baseball (12:30 pm/ET MLB) Sound the trumpets, release the doves, and be in awe as the new Yankee Stadium opens its doors for the Bronx Bombers' long-awaited home opener. Alongside analysts Jim Kaat and Harold Reynolds, MLB Network reintroduces none other than 19-time Emmy winner Bob Costas for his first play-by-play since the 2000 ALCS, played across the street in what was The House That Ruth Built. That was the last World Championship season for the Yanks, so maybe Costas is the cosmic influence Joe Girardi's bunch needs to find October happiness. The Blue Jays and Twins play in the network's regular Thursday Night Baseball game. * CSI : Crime Scene Investigation (9 pm/ET CBS) It's not a crossover episode but Battlestar Galactica fans should enjoy this quirky hour, which gives a generous nod to the sci-fi series. BSG's Kate Vernon guest stars, and it's directed by Galactica helmer Michael Nankin and written by former Battlestar scribes David Weddle and Bradley Thompson. The action takes place at a sci-fi convention, where a producer is murdered. Fortunately, Hodges and Wendy are at the showcase and investigate, which allows the underused Wallace Langham and Liz Vassey to shine in numerous fantasy sequences. * Bones (8 pm/ET Fox) Nowadays Booth and Brennan may be lying on Sweets' psychiatric couch, so to speak, but tonight they get a visit from their old therapist, Dr. Gordon Wyatt (Stephen Fry). Wyatt, whom we haven't seen since 2007, helps Sweets with a book he's writing on our intrepid crime solvers, and he also pitches in when the team investigates a gruesome discovery in the death-metal music scene. * American Chopper (9 pm/ET TLC) Teutul family conflict has always been the norm at Orange County Choppers, but the blowup between Sr. and Jr. in last week's Season 6 opener took things to a whole other level. Tensions between the father and son continue to escalate tonight, and the shop's entire foundations are seriously shaken. On a lighter note, the rest of the crew clowns around while building a motorcycle inspired by the circus. And a Woodstock-themed bike is built in celebration of the legendary music festival's 40th anniversary. * 30 Rock (9:31 pm/ET NBC) Liz Lemon is sometimes tart - yet always palatable - but she's turning slightly sour tonight. The squeeze is on Lemon when she's saddled with a suspension from work. A lost soul without all the TGS chaos and rolling Rock rowdyism, Liz seeks a way to bide her time. Meanwhile, there's some reel-world anxiety when film bigwigs mull over pulling the plug on Jenna's Janis Joplin movie. In a desperate response, Jack and Jenna try (just a little bit harder) to stir up buzzworthy publicity. Source Here
