The final season of "Nip/Tuck" begins airing tonight, 10pm on FX
Tonight the final season of FX's "Nip/Tuck" begins airing at 10pm. While the show has had its highs and lows, it has consistently been confrontational and controversial and we don't expect anything less. While verging on the pornographic, the show has taken a pointed view of our town since McNamara/Troy moved its practice from Florida to Los Angeles a few seasons ago, and while always over-the-top, there's a kernel of truth in each presentation. Cheers lads, here's to a few more hours of depravity!
Style/fashion and Lady Gaga fans get a double dose tonight as the superstar pays a visit to Bravo's "Launch My Line" tonight at 10pm. See the teaser clip at the end of this post.
A couple months agowe interviewed creator of "The Shield" (and "Lie to Me" showrunner) Shawn Ryan - looks like our man just landed another series as his "Ridealong" project has been picked up by FOX. Prolific is an understatement.
