TV DivaGal went to the CBS and The CW upfront last week, and both networks are offering up shows we’ll want to watch this fall like CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, Patrick Wilson in A Gifted Man and of course, Ashton Kutcher! on Two and A Half Men. Over at The CW we’ve got Hart of Dixie and The Secret Circle on tap.
But what about the men in our lives? What will they want to watch come this fall? Here’s TV DivaGal’s picks of what your man should be watching (and don’t worry, you’ll enjoy them too!).
How To Be A Gentleman. You know a show is going to resonate with men when the business executive next to you at the upfront says, “I can’t wait to watch this show with my wife!” That’s exactly what happened to TV DivaGal when the sneak peek for How To Be a Gentleman (pictured above) ran. Mild-mannered Andrew crosses path with his former childhood bully Bert (Kevin Dillon), who decides to take Andrew under his wing to loosen him up and help him really live life. It’s the Odd Couple for 2011! How to Be A Gentleman premieres Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.
Person of Interest. The man behind Lost, JJ Abrams, has created another show that’s bound to inspire queries, theories and OMG gasps. Jim Caviezel and Lost alum Michael Emerson are two men who try to halt something about to happen to a person — whether he or she is the victim or bad guy — using only a social security number as a reference point to who that person is. Plus, any show that shoots around the corner from TV DivaGal’s house is one that has to be watched. Person of Interest premieres Thursdays at 9 p.m.
Ringer. Buffy The Vampire Slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar is back on TV in a dual role. She plays Bridget, a broke recovering drug addict who, after witnessing a murder, assumes the identity of her ritzy, Park Avenue-living twin sister, Siobhan, believing she’ll have it all with in this new life. But looks can be deceiving. Siobhan’s world is filled with lies, betrayal, deceit and more. What’s worse is that Siobhan may not be not be dead; she just needs a identical dead body to take her eternal rest for her. Yep, pretending to be your not-so-dead twin can be a major pain in the butt! Ringer premieres on Tuesdays at 9 p.m..
Re-Modeled. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, how in the world am I going to get my man to watch a show about models? Well, tell him this show is really about Paul Fisher, a loud, uberly-confident model booker who’s out to revamp the modeling business one boutique agency at a time. Paul’s got the drill sergeant attitude of The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels with the caustic commentary skills of Idol alum Simon Cowell as he sets out to rebuild the business and models from head to catwalk. Plus, there will be hot chicks. That should get your boy to watch. Re-Modeled premieres on the network midseason.
