Sunday (March 14) is an especially crowded night of television, with three regular series, a big-event miniseries and a recognizably branded TV movie all debuting in primetime.
Outside of the first week of the TV season, in fact, it’s unlikely that any night this season has featured as many debuts in addition to new episodes of current shows on the broadcast networks.
So which of the premieres will you be watching? Here are the contenders:
“The Celebrity Apprentice.” The third edition of NBC’s reality show debuts at 9 p.m. ET and features the likes of Bret Michaels, Sharon Osbourne, Michael Johnson and Cyndi Lauper competing for Donald Trump’s approval.
“Minute to Win It.” This new NBC game show, hosted by the Food Network’s Guy Fieri, has contestants performing seemingly mundane — emphasis on “seemingly” — against a running clock. It debuts at 7 p.m.
“Sons of Tucson.” Imagine “Reaper’s” Sock (Tyler Labine) posing as the father of three boys whose real dad is in jail, and you get an idea of this easygoing FOX comedy that premieres at 9:30 p.m. following “Family Guy.”
“The Pacific.” HBO’s epic World War II miniseries, which follows U.S. Marines fighting in the Pacific theater of the war, debuts at 9 p.m.
“The Cutting Edge: Fire and Ice.” The fourth movie in the skating-romance franchise stars Francia Raisa and Brendan Fehr as the latest set of mismatched partners and airs at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
So what’s it going to be? Vote in the poll below and let us know in the comments.
