Radio From Hell SumCap 6.16.08

The summary/recap of this morning's Radio From Hell TV report on X96:

Tonight 6.16
(Showtime) Season Premiere: When last we left pot-dealing MILF Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker), her home was engulfed in wildfires and she was dragging the family south down the Cali coastline to work for her new gang partner/boss on the Mexican border. It’s only going to get weirder (read: better) now that Nancy’s moving in with her estranged father-in-law (well-cast vet Albert Brooks) in the border town of Ren Mar. Meanwhile, back in what’s left of Agrestic, her former crew is pinning their marijuana crop on jailed Celia (continuing scene-stealer Elizabeth Perkins); logic and promo photos say they’ll all be reunited sometime this season.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl (Showtime) Series Debut: Secret Diary of a Call Girl is A. A sexy-smart British import about the life of a “full-service” escort, and 2. The answered prayers of Doctor Who nerds who lusted over sweet lil’ Billie Piper in the revival series a few years ago. Now, she’s Belle (the call girl) by night and Hannah (the real girl) by late afternoon, narrating the ins and outs—ha!—of her business with professional cool a la USA’s Burn Notice. Secret Diary may not be the next great Showtime series, but it’ll do until the return of Californication.

Tuesday 6.17
America’s Got Talent
(NBC) Season Premiere: Hosted by Jerry Springer, with "celebrity" judges David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne; Salt Lake City's own Slippery Kittens Burlesque in the first episode—you probably won't see them on KSL News, though.

Flipping Out (Bravo) Season Premiere: The OCD house-flipper is back! Sorry, houses!

Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood (Oxygen) Season Premiere: Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are checking out of their bed & breakfast and moving back to Hollywood! Sorry, Hollywood!

Wednesday 6.18
Ghost Hunters
(Sci-Fi) Season Finale: This week, they’ll not find a ghost in a Delaware Civil War fort.

Black Gold (TruTV) Series Debut: The new reality series from the producers of Ice Road Truckers and … man, I hate these fuckers … TruTV, but no sign of “guest star” Rooster McConaughey, brother of Matthew. Like Truckers, The Deadliest Catch, Septic Tank Rangers, et al, it’s just on the cameras and wait/hope for dismemberment; Black Gold just brings waaay to much “Danger’s a-Lurkin’” narration to the table. Or so it seems, until these West Texas oil-rig workers actually speak: They all sound like Boomhauer from King of the Hill—but at least there are subtitles.

Thursday 6.19
Penn & Teller: Bullshit
(Showtime) Season Premiere: Who knew there would still be enough bullshit to go around? In the Season 6 opener, Penn & Teller take on The War on Porn, that seemingly endless battle being waged by groups of Morally Outraged Pinheads who want to regulate your TV, your Internet and whatever you’re carrying in your pants.
Friday 6.20
35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards
(ABC) Regis Philbin receives the Lifetime Achievement Award for still being alive-ish; Cameron Mathison and Sherri Shepherd host. If you're up during the day, maybe you'll know who they are.

Saturday 6.21
The Ultimate Fighter
(Spike) Season Finale: Team Rampage vs. Team Forrest. My money's on Rampage—Forrest doesn't sound very intimidating.

Sunday 6.22
The Two Coreys
(A&E) Season Premiere: I thought this was about the buddy misadventures of Canadian singing sensation Corey Hart and Milwaukee Brewers right fielder Corey Hart! Now that’s a reality show! Note to self: Check copyright on Hart 2 Hart …

The Guy Awards (Spike) Dubious Awards Show: I’ve become quite invested in this “Who’s hotter: Eva Longoria or Eva Mendes?” argument in the commercials for Spike’s second annual Guys Choice awards. Naturally, anyone with half a brain and at least two man-nuggets knows the only correct answer is Eva Mendes, but we’ve all been dumbfounded by the American voting public before, haven’t we? And how can you truly trust an awards show whose sole nominees for “Ballsiest Band” are the Foo Fighters and … Linkin Park?

I am glad that "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" was included here. Indeed it is a sexy at the same time a smart one. It is a nice story about how a call girl hopes and dreams at the same time showing her promiscuous side.
