T.T.T.TV (Jan. 22)

Tonight's Top Three on TV

The Braverman's and Some Special FX

1. Parenthood (NBC 10/9c) - Season Finale

The fourth season of Parenthood hit a high note with Kristina's story line, bringing in a second Friday Night Lights Alum to play a Iraq war veteran with PTSD and the whole adoption angle. Although the best moments were really great the low moments were extremely dull and sometimes just annoying. Sarah having another season long struggle to choose between two men seems like we aren't going anywhere with her and the half episode abortion that came and went was poorly done and probably could have been done better.

With this season coming to an end hopefully we get a nice little bow on the Ray Romano versus Jason Ritter story line. I have no idea if that will happen, what I do know will happen is that the Braverman's will make you cry. And I don't just mean like tear up but if you actually sit down and watch the whole episode you will be blubbering at one point or another I can guarantee that.

2. The Ultimate Fighter (FX 8/7c) - 2-Hour Season Premiere 

This season on TUF features middleweights and the coaches are Light Heavy weight champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen. Each man will choose seven contestants for their teams and at the end of the season the best middleweight will receive a six figure contract in the UFC. Also both the winning coach and contestant will receive their very own custom Harley Davidson motorcycle.

If you enjoy the UFC and MMA in general then the two best episodes of The Ultimate Fighter are the premiere and the finale. The finale is self explanatory, but the reason why the premiere is so good is because their are 14 fights that they go through in two hours. (On some of the better season you can see four or five insane knockouts.) They also choose teams on the first episode. That's always fun because you get to see some of the personality of the coaches and with Sonnen and Jones as the coaches there will be a lot of personality on display.

3. Justified (FX 10/9c)

Every season of Justified has been exciting in its own ways. The first had the introduction of Raylan Givens and his dealings with the Crowder family. Season two, the best one yet, had Walter Goggins give one of the best acting jobs I have ever seen on TV and they brought in the whole Bennet clan led by another great actor Margo Martindale as Mags. The third season didn't skimp on the baddies adding Neal McDonough as Quarles and Mykelti Williamson as Limehouse. If you've noticed something that the people who run Justified do great is that they bring in great actors to play great villains  So far this season we haven't heard much from a main antagonist. What they have given us is some sort of mystery that in the end will likely end up leading Raylan to the memorable villain that we all hope will show up.

Honorable Mention

Face-Off (Syfy (9/8c)

Face-Off is a reality competition show that pits movie make up artists against each other with the winner winning $100,000.

White Collar (USA Network 10/9c)

After a little break Neil and the crew are back.

New Girl (Fox 9/8c)

Schmidt and Nick are my favorite. Although this show wouldn't be the same without the whole cast, so I love them all.
