The Bachelor, 8 p.m., ABC
I admit it. I watched the last half hour of last week’s premiere. This is the worst bachelor ever. He looks like the progeny of Austin Powers and the Sally Field character from Steel Magnolias. Plus, he is dumb. Remarkably dumb. And there seems to be an inordinate amount of crying, even by this show’s standards. But I wanted to confess that I watched. It won’t happen again.
It’s a Brad, Brad World, 10 p.m., Bravo
Remember Rachel Zoe’s assistant? This is him. With his own show. Because that’s what cable reality TV does – it procreates. Like the Duggers. In tonight’s debut, “Brad arrives in the Big Apple, hires a personal assistant, works on a shoot for Gilt Groupe and pitches his ideas for a photo spread to Details Magazine.”
First Week In, 9 p.m., Discovery
A new series that debuts tonight, it “follows first-time offenders on their inaugural visit to the big house. From the intake process, to the men’s interactions and confrontations with violent offenders, to their desperate attempts to make a phone call, no aspect of their introduction to incarceration is off-limits in this new docu-series.”
