What's Hot On TV Today – Secret Life of the American Teenager

I really want to watch Secret Life of the American Teenager, but perhaps it’s having a 16-year-old son and nearly 13-year-old daughter that just makes it too hard to even consider it. I should have them watching the show is what I should be doing. It’s on tonight with a season premiere, followed by a series premiere of Make It Or Break It.

1. Doc Hollywood. Reading Michael J. Fox’s autobiography, he said it was during the filming of this movie that he first started realizing symptoms of his Parkinson’s appearing in his hands, but it was long after that that it was diagnosed. He stars as a doctor that gets stuck in a small South Carolina town using his medical knowledge to perform community service, ironically enough. 11:00 AM CT CMT

2. Forrest Gump. I wonder if what makes this movie so entertaining and endearing is the chance that maybe we all wish for a simple life like Forrest’s. Despite his difficult beginnings, it seemed like stuff was always simple for him … like a box of chocolates. 1:00 PM CT HBO West
