This Week on TV – 10/16/11-10/22/11

Welcome to a new week of TV! There were a few more cancelations & pickups. How are you faring so far? I’m sad about the cancelation of Charlie’s Angels. I know a lot of people didn’t like it, but I kinda did. Ah well. Now, on to this week’s schedule. Check it out below!

Don’t forget to comment or Tweet @tvismypacifier to let us know what YOU are planning to watch this week!

Tonight is the series premiere of Why Am I Still Single?! on VH1 at 9/8c. New York is filled with single men and women roaming the streets in search of their perfect match. Siggy Flicker is no stranger to the struggle – personally or professionally. Siggy has used her own experience in finding true love (yes, she did!) and her masterful ability to read people in becoming one of New York’s most successful matchmakers. Now Siggy and her brazen team of “love pickers” get ready to show the world their skills. The new series features real people, life lessons, laughs and, most importantly, love. In each episode, Siggy will help two new clients (one male, one female) improve their dating skills and hopefully find true love. First, the two clients go on a date together. Unknown to them, it’s just a test date that Siggy has set up to assess their dating skills, or lack thereof. Usually, it ain’t pretty! Once Siggy has seen enough, she barges in to stop the horror. Then Siggy, in her signature loud, sexy and smart way, targets their weaknesses and helps change their dating habits forever.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Talking Dead on AMC at 11:59/10:59c. This live after-show serves as a platform for discussion for AMC’s series, The Walking Dead.

Talking Dead features Hardwick spending time with fans, actors, producers and tv enthusiasts, recapping that most recent Dead episode, and taking questions and comments from viewers. Fans may continue to engage with the after-show following the on-air conclusion, online, at amctv.com for more conversations, questions and trivia.

Tonight is the series premiere of Man Up! on ABC at 8:30/7:30c. Will Keen’s grandfather fought in WWII. Will’s father fought in Vietnam. Will plays Call of Duty on his PlayStation 3 and uses non-dairy hazelnut creamer. So what happened to all the real men? They’re still here — they just smell like pomegranate body wash now. Meet Will (Mather Zickel). His evolved, sensitive nature is why his awesome wife Theresa (Teri Polo) married him. But Will and his friends find themselves wondering — in a world of body spray and manscaping — what does it really mean to be a guy anymore? Will is more interested in finding the perfect gift for his son Nathan’s (Jake Johnson) 13th birthday than in doing his job selling insurance, sensitive soul Craig (Christopher Moynihan) still pines for his college ex Lisa, and Kenny (Dan Fogler) clamps down on his anger and asks himself “What would Tobey Maguire do?” when his ex Brenda (Amanda Detmer) starts seeing a guy who is everything he’s not (Henry Simmons). And though it may not come naturally, each new day brings these lovable beta males another opportunity to Man Up and be like their forefathers.

Tonight is the series premiere of Dave’s Old Porn on Showtime at 11:30/10:30c. Top comedian Dave Attell (Insomniac with Dave Attell) will take us back to the “Golden Age” of adult movie-making — the ’70s and early ’80s – with Dave’s Old Porn. Armed with a pile of retro porn VHS tapes, Attell and some of today’s best comics (Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla) will provide play-by-play commentary (in the vein of Mystery Science Theater) while watching classic adult films — from the groundbreaking sensation, The Devil and Miss Jones to cult classics like Ultra Flesh and Deep Rub. They’ll also be joined by porn living legends and current stars like Ron Jeremy, Georgina Spelvin, Belladonna and Seka, and several of the film’s stars will reveal behind-the-scenes scoop on these erotic gems. It’s an uncensored, unscripted celebration of the best cheesy dialogue and crazy plot points that made retro porn so great.
 
Tonight is also the season premiere of 4 shows. First up is Rules of Engagement on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.
