  • Telenovela (NBC): Series Premiere. Two episodes play tonight following The Voice to preview the series that will officially premiere on Monday, January 4th. It stars Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Diana Maria Riva (The Good Guys), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) and more as the stars of a popular Spanish language soap opera. It follows their lives on and off screen. While I really like the premise, I didn’t find the show to be all that funny. I’ve seen both episodes and you can find out more by listening to my spoiler-free Telenovela preview.
