Bookended by Easter and Tax Day, the week in between has some lighter fare to keep you busy. From a new episode of Glee to a zillion Titanic-themed shows, to narrowing down the Idol finalists, take a peek and start programming your DVR. Have a great week!
GCB, ABC 9p.m.
Happy Easter! The ladies of GCB sure know how to make a stir – with back-to-back new episodes.
Check out a sneak peek of one of the new shows here, where Cricket and Blake decide there’s no way a liberal is worthy of carrying their baby.
Dancing with the Stars, ABC 8p.m.
The latest live show Dancing with the Stars features a performance by Detroit rockers KISS and the dances will be set to rock songs. Think the teams will have to paint their faces in tribute?
Glee, FOX 8p.m.
Bonus: Albert Nobbs available on VOD
Glee is back! I have had the clip of Blaine (Darren Criss) and his brother, guest star Matt Bomer (White Collar) singing Gotye on repeat all week, so it’s a good thing the show is finally back so I can stop driving my officemates crazy. After the cliffhanger mid-season, I can’t wait to see waht will happen as the McKinley kids barrel towards graduation
Also on Tuesday, gender-bending drama Albert Nobbs, which earned Glenn Close and Janet McTeer Oscar nominations, is available on Video on Demand more than a month before its DVD release.
American Idol, Fox 8p.m.
And then there were seven. The remaining finalists take the stage on American Idol as we head towards the finale. This week they perform songs from this decade, which I’m assuming means 2002-2012 – let’s just hope we’re done with the Adele covers.
Private Screenings, TCM 9 p.m.
To kick off the annual TCM Classic Film Festival, the channel’s Private Screenings series will feature Liza Minelli talking about her life and career. The fest, which takes place over four days in Hollywood, is premiering a new remastered version of Cabaret as well as favorites like Funny Face, Frankenstein, and The Thomas Crowne Affair.
Cabin in the Woods opens in theaters
Perfectly timed for Friday the 13th, Drew Goddard’s directorial debut Cabin in the Woods opens in theaters. Try not to read any spoilers before you go – the twist is worth the wait!
Titanic miniseries, ABC 8 p.m.
The ill-fated Titanic hit an iceberg and sunk 100 years ago this week, and several networks are commemorating the event, but none with more fanfare than the Julian Fellowes-helmed Titanic two-part series on ABC. The Downton Abbey creator dramatized the story of ship’s crew and its passengers. Part two culminates the series on Sunday at 9 p.m.
Girls premiere, HBO 10:30p.m.
Lena Dunham made her name with a film that premiered at SXSW in 2010, Tiny Furniture. Now she’s back, starring in and directing a show backed by Judd Apatow about the very real stories of a down-to-earth group of young women living in New York City. Be prepared to cringe, cry, and laugh – not necessarily in that order.
