Welcome to Watch List, where we identify five things on TV to watch while you stay at home and bake a cake with six Twinkies inside of it. It can be done. LET’S GO!
HARD KNOCKS: A DECADE OF TRAINING CAMPS – 10:00PM (HBO) The biggest casualty of the NFL's offseason lockout was this HBO show that has spent ten years chronicling various NFL teams during training camp. With such a short lead time to the season, HBO wasn't able to get a team to film this summer, so it is my deep regret that this retrospective is all the Rex Ryan cursing you're going to get for now. You'll also learn about what happened to some of those unfortunate souls who got cut from old seasons. HINT: Nothing good! ANTICIPATION: TOUGH LOVE!
I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT – 8:00PM (TLC) This one's complicated. A woman falls into a coma five months after having a miscarriage. Turns out she miscarried a twin, and the other twin was still gestating inside her, only she didn't know she had twins! Holy frijole! Tell me that wouldn't blow your head apart. ANTICIPATION: SECRET TWIN!
CONFESSIONS: ANIMAL HOARDING – 10:00PM (Animal Planet) Tonight you'll meet someone who owns 130 rabbits. And the scary thing was that they started out with just two a week ago. Rabbits are THAT good at sweet-talking one another. ANTICIPATION: HOPPITY HOP!
TODDLERS & TIARAS – 10:00PM (TLC) You think you've seen enough scary toddler beauty pageant contestants in your time, but tonight you'll see one that blows them all away: one dressed as Dolly Parton. Oh, sweet Georgia Brown, this will be the end of us all. ANTICIPATION: DOLLY JR.!
LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN – 11:30PM (CBS) The great Aubrey Plaza stops by. Some choice April Ludgate quotes for you: "I passed up a gay Halloween party to be here. Do you know how much fun gay Halloween parties are? Last year I saw three Jonas Brothers make out with three Robert Pattinsons. It was amazing. "Jerry, why don't you put that murinal in the men's room so people can murinate all over it?" " I'm an eyebrow girl. I want to make out with him and chew his eyebrows off." ANTICIPATION: PLAZA!
