TV Tonight: Nip/Tuck

"LA's newest implants" aren't of the silicone kind; they're Sean McNamara and Christian Troy, who are making the leap from Miami to Los Angeles in tonight's season premiere of Nip/Tuck. And while the new city provides a welcome change of scenery, the satisfaction is for the viewer only as business isn't exactly booming at the McNamara/Troy office. In fact, the two men find themselves without any clients at all and must resort to hiring a publicist to get their practice rolling. The publicist (played by Lauren Hutton) tells the duo that they must perform surgery on celebrities to create buzz.

Celebrities creating buzz is a mantra that the show has certainly taken to heart. Tonight's episode has bevy of celebrity cameos including Hutton, Tia Carrere, Bradley Cooper, Oliver Platt, and Craig Bierko, but it is Jennifer Coolidge who steals the show. She plays a patient on the TV show the doctors are hired to consult for called Hearts 'N Scalpels. It's a show-within-a-show format that is smart, funny, and, best of all, a satire of Nip/Tuck itself.

With the move to LA and the onslaught of celebrity cameos, I'm hoping that there is enough realistic drama to save Nip/Tuck from the strained slump that was season four. Tonight's episode is definitely a step in the right direction, which is good, as I know I'm not the only one who misses the good ol' Carver days!

This show lost a lot of my interest last season, so I'm hoping the change of scenery mixes things up. The promos have been fantastic, so hopefully that's an indication of how good the show will be this season! I'm definitely excited for tonight's episode! :)

I'm excited for this. The first two seasons were fantastic and the third season got out of control when they did a poor job of summing up the carver storyline. But the fourth season was back in fine form so I have high hopes!

How did you see that?...I can't wait until tonight! I'm watching it live tonight at 10 and I'll still have my dvr set to record. This is shaping up to be one of the best seasons ever. P.S.: their new office looks amazing.
