TV Tonight: Lifetime's Sunday Lineup

TV Tonight: Lifetime's Sunday Lineup

Apparently, I'm in Lifetime's demographic now. The network that I used to laugh at for its issue-of-the-week movies that played like after-school specials for grown women is suddenly delivering something akin to must-see TV. Tonight, two new shows enter Lifetime's Sunday lineup, joining the already popular "Army Wives," and I'll admit I'm setting up a TiVo season pass for at least one of them.

That would be "State of Mind," one of my top 10 shows to watch this summer, starring Lili Taylor as a frazzled therapist whose personal life is more disastrous than her clients'. I recently checked out the first hour, which airs at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific, and while it's far from perfect, there's a lot to like. For one thing, Taylor delivers the kind of tough yet vulnerable performance that renders her character neither too perfect nor too neurotic. For another, Devon Gummersall — better known as Brian Krakow from "My So-Called Life" — has grown up quite nicely (ack, another sign I'm in Lifetime's demographic!). The pilot has a little too much plot, and a few stories that wrap up a little too neatly, but it gets stronger as the episode progresses, and the ending left me wanting to see how it will grow.

"Side Order of Life" also joins the schedule tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific. Possibly the most notable thing about it is the appearance of Jason Priestly, but I'm curious to know what you think of it if you watch. You can also check out the first episode online now. Or, to watch preview videos for both "Side Order of Life" and "State of Mind,"

Lilly Taylor really bugged me on Six Feet Under. I watched the season til the end and still catch the repeats on Bravo! and I just dont find her character to be the least bit likable...she was whiney, bossy, and annoying. So I TiVo'ed the show hoping to get a better take on the actress herself, but if it is anything like "Lisa" I know it will be a bust.

These shows seem worth a try to me.

I will definitely tune in for a few episodes to see if it is TiVO-worthy, based on Taylor alone. Anything to get the lasting image and voice of her character from Six Feet Under out of my head...

Like you Buzz, I've never really watched Lifetime(even though, unlike you, I am in the demographic!) but I am really looking forward to watching State of Mind tonight.
