Over on cable, Animal Planet has third season premiere of Pit Boss, BBC America has the series premiere of The Fades, Cooking Channel has the series premiere of The Supersizers Go, Hallmark Channel has the TV movie premiere of A Taste of Romance, HGTV has the first season finale of Donna Decorates Dallas, Lifetime has the TV movie premiere of Sexting in Surburbia, and Syfy has the TV movie premiere of Collision Earth.

Other Options

  • The Fades (BBC America): Series Premiere. The series follows a teen that has apocalyptic visions and can see the dead and meets someone that may be able to tell him about what he is seeing. Not bad, but didn’t find it the easiest to follow. Although, I may have been too tired when I was watching it. Will at least watch next week to see if it improves on that front.
  • The Firm (NBC): Repeat. The “Pilot” and “Chapter 2” episodes from last Sunday replay. Runs two hours.
  • Hell on Wheels (AMC): Repeat. This past Sunday’s episode, “Timshel,” replays.
