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

* Bones (8/7c Fox) Series creator Hart Hanson, who took some heat for the alternate-reality love scene between Brennan and Booth at the end of last season, explained that the latter's "who are you?" remark was due more to coma-induced confusion than amnesia. But as the fifth season begins, Booth is declared mentally fit to pursue bad guys again, and tonight he and Brennan try to figure out how - or why - a psychic (Cyndi Lauper) knows that a Washington, D.C., fountain is hiding a mass grave. * VH1 Divas (9/8c VH1) A who's who of today's top female singers take to the stage at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn for a lyrical ladies' night out as well as to raise funds for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis and Jordin Sparks headline the event, which is also slated to feature Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Cyndi Lauper and Martina McBride. Paula Abdul hosts. * Survivor: Samoa (8/7c CBS) The 19th edition of the series could be called Survivor: Southern California. Half of this season's 20 castaways live there, with eight hailing from Los Angeles. One player definitely not from La-La Land is 36-year-old Texan Russell Hantz, who is "the closest thing to evil" to ever appear on the show, according to host Jeff Probst. In tonight's premiere, two tribes are immediately formed: Galu and Foa Foa. Then, without speaking to each other, each group elects a chief who will make all of the decisions for his or her tribe. * Community (9:31/8:31c NBC) Joel McHale, the snarky host of E!'s The Soup, makes the leap to network television in a new comedy series that also stars Chevy Chase. McHale plays a quick-tongued lawyer who's used to talking his way out of trouble... that is, until his degree is revoked and he's forced to seek higher learning at a Colorado community college. While there, he pursues a fellow student (Gillian Jacobs) and forms a study group to spend time with her. Naturally, it backfires, leaving him leading a mismatched group of oddballs in their studies. * It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (10/9c FX ) Real estate is the theme of the fifth-season opener. First, Frank takes advantage of the mortgage crisis by buying a foreclosed house. Do you think it bothers him that the foreclosed family's still in the house? Mac and Dennis get the bug, too, and decide to become a good-cop, bad-cop sales team (Honey & Vinegar Real Estate), and an uncharacteristically entrepreneurial Dee rents out some personal real estate: She becomes a surrogate mother for a yuppie couple. * Project Runway (10/9c Lifetime Television ) In the wake of creating party dresses for the models themselves last week (it was crystal clear that Qristyl was out), the designers turn the page and take on an unconventional-materials contest. They'll make big headlines by creating clothes from newspapers. Read all about it, read all about it: It appears a shocking, front-page scandal will erupt tonight. Actress Eva Longoria Parker and fashion luminary Tommy Hilfiger are the guest judges. Source Here

Check out a first look at the season 5 premiere It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode which returns for its fourth season on Thursday Sept. 17 at 10pm on FX . Season 5 Summary: Crude, controversial, outlandish, and downright hilarious. The gang's all back for a 5th season of FX's original comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Come join Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito), the self-centered owners of Paddy's Pub in Philadelphia who will do just about anything, no matter how reprehensible, in an attempt to better their own situation.

From wrestling for the returning troops to stimulating the economy to sneaking into the World Series, there's no shortage of scheming this year for the staff at Paddy's. And that's just a taste of what's to come. In vitro fertilization, food fetishes, interventions, drinking games, internet dating, and a whole lot of cats. Oh, and did I mention Greenman? There's something for everybody in season five of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was created by McElhenney and is executive produced by McElhenney, Day, Howerton, Michael Rotenberg and Nick Frenkel. The show is produced by FX Productions.

Always Sunny Promises Recession Jokes & More Kitten Mittens

If you're a fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia , you've probably already seen the video featuring Charlie's invention to soften the sound of cat claws: Kitten Mittens. But did you know that there will be far more merchandise options than just the mittens in the coming season of FX 's comedy? It's true - a "nudie pen" with Dennis' body being revealed when the pen is tipped, a new kind of bath towel and a new way of getting a "shot" at a bar that is too funny for me to describe here are some of the brilliant inventions brought to us by the bizarre Philly crew. It's all in a new preview video for season five of the show, along with new footage from Charlie's Kitten Mittens promo spot ("you'll be smitten!"). In another video the cast explains more of the storylines we can expect to see in the coming months, starting with the season premiere on Sept. 17. These videos make me laugh. If you're a Sunny fan, chances are they'll have the same effect on you. To check them out, read more. Source & Video

Year in Review: Top Shows You're Not Watching, Part 2

Damages - When you first saw the previews for legal thriller Damages I imagine you thought exactly what I did: "Great. Another legal show. Just what we need." However, I assure you that Damages is not like other legal programs and absolutely deserves your time and attention. In some ways, it makes me think of Dexter in that it has an excellently paced season-long murder mystery that keeps you guessing until the last episode. Combine this with superb acting talent (including Emmy winning performances from Glenn Close and Zeljko Ivanek) and a fascinating method of story telling (the show jumps between at least 3 time frames in a seamless and relatively non-confusing manner) and we have ourselves a winner! Friday Night Lights - Having us here at SideReel telling you to watch Friday Night Lights is nothing new. We dedicated the SideReel Drama Club to the show during this past summer. However, until every single person out there has watched this show...we refuse to stop talking about it. This show has everything - from an unfairly attractive cast to some of the best family drama on television. We repeat: It doesn't matter if you don't like football. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Granted, this little gem of a show is currently more watched than it used to be. However, I imagine some of you have still overlooked this fantastic comedy, which I warn you, is probably not for everyone. However, the ones that do click with IASIP's insane sense of humor (jokes about necrophilia, abortion, name a few) will immediately identify it as a favorite. Give it a chance! The Big Bang Theory - I fear that some people may have shared my initial reaction to this show which was that "it's just another cheesy sitcom". However, as the first season of Big Bang progressed, the show has evolved (pun intended) into one of the smarter, funnier shows on television. If you listen carefully, the show is chalk full of clever, incredibly nerdy jokes. For me, this show proves that it's still possible to have a standard sitcom (laugh track included) that works. Privileged - I identified Privileged as being not great, but showing promise when it debuted, and since then it has only improved. In my initial review I commented that while we all love Gossip Girl , The CW could still use a show that is a little more Gilmore Girls (re: wholesome) and Privileged is your winner. It's the only show currently on the network that really delves into a relationship between sisters and it is done quite well. The show's star Joanna Garcia also takes parts and scenes that could be vomit-worthy in terms of cheesiness and manages to turn it into something adorable. If you liked old-school WB, Privileged is for you! Think there's other shows that we should be watching? Share in comments! Go Back to Part 1 2008: Year in Review
