Pornography, grand larceny, double-talking, dismemberment, and stretch marks. In other words, an average Tuesday for Mickey Rourke. Here’s your guide to tonight’s television.
FIND OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP
NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!
MORE TO LOVE
Reasons to watch: Tonight, FOX unveils their dating show for the BBW crowd with the premiere of More To Love. The concept is this: a 300 lb. bachelor must find his true love amongst a gaggle of heavy-set women. The show has a lot of heart and I find it to be a refreshin break from all the plastic and phoney reality shows of the past decade. Still think they missed the boat by not calling this The Fat-chelor though.
PORN: BUSINESS OF PLEASURE
Reasons to Watch: CNBC goes inside the multi-billion dollar pornography industry. Deep inside (just like sex.)
THE POPE OF GREENWICH VILLAGE
Mickey Rourke stars as a would-be restauranteur who reluctantly enters into a half-cooked robbery scheme with his punk cousin played by Eric Roberts. They end up messing with the wrong people and things get out of hand. Literally.
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
Time: 11PM – 1:15AM
Reasons to watch: Based on a novel by Cormac McCarthy, this film put the Coen Brothers back on top after the humungo mis-steps of The Ladykillers, Intolerable Cruelty, and Who’s Your Caddy? (note to self: fact check this.) The moody crime-thriller is moody and atmospheric and features a star-making performance by Javier Bardem. It also features some really funny looking dogs.
JACKED: AUTO THEFT TASK FORCE
Reasons to watch: Auto thieves, your day has come. You’re constant auto theft has finally reached such a fever pitch that we’ve now assembled a task force to bring you in. There’s no place you can run and there’s no place you can hide. You’ll be doing your auto thefting behind prison bars from now on. Rapists, you’re next.
