Gay TV on a Tuesday Night: Shakira, Amerie on Late Night
Hello, Tuesday television lineup. While you're not packed to the brim with LGBT characters and gay-favorite celebrities, you still have a few things going for you, dear Tues, not the least of which is the brand-new sci-fi series V, starring Lost and Gia beauty Elizabeth Mitchell. Coupled with the new season of Tabatha's Salon Takeover with Tabatha Coffey, Tuesday could become known as the babes-in-charge night. It's also a hot night for music favorites, with Shakira, Amerie, and Marc Anthony (Mr. J-Lo) all popping up to perform on late-night talk shows. See, Tuesday? You're more than just the night in between Gossip Girl and Glee; you've got charming characters of your own. Set the DVR, and let Planet Out know what you liked and loathed later.
If V hooked you last week with its premiere, tonight's episode will draw you further into the mysterious visitors and their mission objectives here on Earth, at 8 p.m. on ABC. They've arrived and they're hot, or at least their rep, Anna (Morena Baccarin) is. But what do they want? Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell) has reason to be suspicious when it turns out a visitor is tracking her and Father Jack (Joel Gretsch).
On another Naughty Kitchen episode on Oxygen at 10 p.m., Curtis is out of the spotlight again this week as Emily continues to work at winning her job back. Boo! At the same hour, Bravo's got a brand-new episode of Tabatha's Salon Takeover. As celebrity hair stylist extraordinaire Tabatha Coffey tries to whip lazy, complacent workers into shape at another salon in dire straits, she runs into some resistance from one employee. How dumb do you have to be to call Coffey out on being a bitch? She knows she is; she doesn't care. And neither do we. That's what makes her awesome... and the lazy whiner a goof! See the sparks fly below.
If you're watching Styl'd on MTV, they've moved the show to Tuesday nights and the new episode starts at 11 p.m. Tonight, Brett could be on the chopping block for soliciting freelance work on the side while competing. Oops!
It's a great night to watch late-night talk shows if you want to shake your you-know-what. Latin lover/singer and J-Lo husband Marc Anthony will be on TBS's Lopez Tonight at 11. Then the Colombian explosion of non-lying hips and "She Wolf" shimmies Shakira will shake it on The Late Show With David Letterman at 11:35 p.m. on CBS. At 12:05 a.m. on ABC, check out R&B artist Amerie on Jimmy Kimmel Live; the beautiful diva is ready and able to be your next Beyoncé.
After that, check out The Late Late Show on CBS for a little Project Runway dirt from Nina Garcia at 12:35 a.m., or if you're a Mad Men fan, watch Jimmy Fallon's NBC show at the same time to catch January Jones's appearance.
