We bet ol’ Morgan Spurlock, left, wasn’t expecting all of this when he started eating those Big Macs for Super Size Me.

On TV this week


The Bachelorette, 8 p.m., ABC Wow, two whole hours that remind us we're not quite as desperate as our fellow man.

SEASON PREMIERE The Mole, 10 p.m., ABC Oh, wait, here's another hour for good measure.


Barbaro, 7 p.m., HBO Still like to bet on horses after Eight Belles bought it this year? Maybe you need to go back and watch this doc about the 2006 winner who was injured at the Preakness Stakes.

SEASON PREMIERE 30 Days, 10 p.m., FX Morgan Spurlock's reality show about reality comes back for a third season, starting with him living as a coal miner for a month. In West Virginia, that's living high on the hog.


Farmer Wants a Wife, 9 p.m., CW The girls have to bake pies, lest they be overrun by the gang from The Biggest Loser.

MonsterQuest, 9 p.m., History There's apparently some creature in North Carolina that preys on dogs and goats, going back to the '50s. These days, they're just called NASCAR fans. (Send your complaints to the e-mail address below.)

Men in Trees, 10 p.m., ABC Get your new episodes — while they last.

SERIES PREMIERE She's Got the Look, 10 p.m., TV Land This new series is like America's Next Top Model, but everyone's older than 35. So, it's Top Model in 15 years.


Anna May Wong: Frosted Yellow Willows: Her Life, Times and Legend, 7 p.m., TCM Interesting look at one of the few Asians allowed to play Asian roles in the early years of film. Racism made sure she didn't get the lead too often, which makes about as much sense as Tila Tequila getting her own show.

SERIES PREMIERE Swingtown, 10 p.m., CBS Another tired ensemble drama exploring sexual mores, but this one is set in the '70s.

Fear Itself, 10 p.m., NBC Let's try the ol' horror/thriller anthology thing again. It's been a while since The Twilight Zone was on.


Dr. G: Medical Examiner, 9 p.m., Discovery Health We finally get it; nerds can watch this show to relive their old Dana Scully fantasies ...

Man vs. Wild, 9 p.m., Discovery ... while the girls can watch Bear Grylls and pretend they're not with the dorks watching Dr. G.
