Jersey Shore
So, season 2 of Jersey Shore, Jersey Shore: Miami (I know the title makes no sense), is coming to an end, and I know that you are all sad. Next Thursday will be the last episode of season 2, and then we probably won’t see these very rich Guido’s acting like fools for at least another year. Maybe if I start having withdrawal, I can start tanning and grenade hunting on Thursdays, I will need to get some sort of regular GTL going on until season 3. The season 2 finale is at 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. this Thursday on MTV. It should be a beauty.

Boardwalk Empire
It’s only 5 episodes deep, but things are starting to heat up on Boardwalk Empire. So far, Jimmy has been banished from Atlantic City and forced to team up with a young Al Capone to bootleg in Chicago. The two of them are climbing the ranks quickly on the streets of Chicago and getting themselves into all sorts of trouble. Nucky is trying to bribe his Senator friend into building roads into Atlantic City so that his Bootlegging operation can prosper even more. Meanwhile, Lucky Luciano has been courting an older and familiar showgirl while searching for Jimmy in A.C. Boardwalk Empire Airs Sundays at 8:00 p.m. on HBO.

Eastbound and Down
Kenny Powers is dominating the Mexican Baseball League and still struggling with the fact that he is becoming an ass man when he has always been known as being a tit man. He has also learned that his new chicka has a young boy, and he has dubbed himself as a father figure for the kid. It also seems that Steve will be striking up a relationship during his Mexican adventure with Kenny with the nurse that lives downstairs. She has been changing his bandages since Kenny shot him in the leg after mistaking him for an intruder. Kenny has also formed a bit of a relationship with the millionaire owner of the Charro’s. East Bound and Down airs on Sundays at 9:30 p.m. on HBO.

Rescue Me
Rescue Me has begun its sixth season in Canada on the Showcase network, despite the fact that it has already aired on the FX network in the United States. The show chronicles the way a New York City firehouse and fire fighters cope with life following the events that transpired on 9/11. The shows lead star is Dennis Leary, who plays Tommy Gavin – an alcoholic firefighter who sees the ghosts of all the victims he failed to save. You can catch Rescue Me Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. on Showcase, or if you are impatient like me, you can watch it online on various sites, such as TV Shack, Surf the Channel and almost every other internet pirate television site.
