April TV Premieres Bloom, But Some Smell Sweeter Than Others
We have a lot of upcoming things to look forward to in April. Spring just recently arrived Thursday, and hopefully as we head into April some of the cold weather will abate (knock on wood.) There’s Easter to look forward to for those who celebrate it, and for those who don’t, there will be a nicer, wider selection of jelly beans and chocolate rabbits to choose from at your local grocer. It’s alcohol awareness month, though on no day are we more aware of the dangers of alcoholism, binge drinking, and drug dependency than April 15 — don’t forget to get your taxes in this year. Finally, on top of all of that excitement, there will be a long list of TV premieres hitting in April. Let’s look at the line up next month, old and new.
There are a number old faces coming back in April, such as The Mindy Project, back from hiatus on April 1, or My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, returning April 3rd on TLC. Syfy’s Continuum will come back for its third season premiere April 4, and as for the show that many have been waiting for, Game of Thrones will return April 6. Good luck to the other 9 p.m. slotted premieres (sorry Turn, River Monsters and Married to Medicine, this could get rough.) Mad Men will return for the last time, beginning its final season on April 13.
Californication, in all it’s raunchy L.A. glory, will be back April 3 too, as will Nurse Jackie. April 14 brings Warehouse 13 and The Real Housewives of Orange Country, overlapping on the 9 p.m. time slot to what I’d imagine are very few objections. The Boondocks will be back April 21, Deadliest Catch on April 22, and 16 and Pregnant will return April 29, finishing up the month right. Or some variation of that.
