Let's talk about what's hot on TV tonight. I'm experimenting with different ideas and formulas. These are the five not-to-miss shows of the night. We have a couple of reality TV shows on CBS, an awards show, and season premieres on Showtime. Please let me know what you think.
2. Big Brother. McCrae makes his nominations, as does the MVP. I'm interested to see how all this works out. A brief recap of Thursday night's season premiere, in case you missed it. 7:00 PM CT CBS
2. Celebrity Wife Swap. Tonight the two significant others of former pro wrestlers Ric Flair and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper will swap their homes and lives for a week. Wouldn't they have similar lives? It seems it would have been more interesting to have one of the wives switch with a female athlete. 7:00 PM CT CBS
2. BET Awards 2013. The included performances will include Chris Brown, Marian Carey, Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion, Kendrick Lamar, R. Kelly, Erykah Badu, Miguel, Ciara, Justin Timberlake, and India Arie. Chris Tucker hosts. Drake leads the nominations with twelve, and Beyoncé ties Mary J. Blige with her eighth nomination ever. Both of them have the most nominations received for Best Female R&B Arist. The Video of the Year award has ten nominees for the first time ever. 7:00 PM CT BET
2. Dexter. Season premiere. Do you remember where last season left off? Tonight, Dexter keeps juggling his two different lives, and Miami Metro is on the case investigating a murder, and looks for help from the “Psychopath Whisperer.” 8:00 PM CT Showtime
2. Ray Donovan. Series premiere. Ray isn't too happy to find his dad home five years too soon with an early parole. He's also looking to figure out how to get an action star removed from a scandal with a transsexual. 9:00 PM CT Showtime
