TV tonight: 'MasterChef,' 'Independence Day'
Posted June 3, 2012
•Fox returns two food-reality shows tonight, Hell's Kitchen (8 ET/PT) and MasterChef (9 ET/PT). Both star Gordon Ramsay as the world's most-insulting-possible employer, and both are designed for those who feel they don't get enough abuse at work and long for more, or who get more than they need and want others to share in the suffering.
Those who have suffered enough might look elsewhere for entertainment.
•Where else? If you're looking for classic entertainment, TCM has Bette Davis as Elizabeth I in two films made 16 years apart: 1939's The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (8 ET/5 PT) and 1955's The Virgin Queen (10 ET/7 PT).
As that second title would indicate, the first romance didn't go so well.
•On a less classic front, AMC gives yet another TV run to Independence Day (8 ET/PT), featuring Bill Pullman as the president.
It's a role he must like, as he'll be playing it again in the upcoming NBC sitcom 1600 Penn— so this time you can watch Day with that in mind, in case you want to make comparisons.
•Over at OWN, the series Are You Normal, America? (9 ET/PT) asks "Is It Normal To Have a Signature Dance Move?"
Followed, no doubt, by the burning question "Is It Normal To Care Whether That's Normal?"
