TV Tonight: "The Starter Wife" and "Burn Notice"

TV Tonight: "The Starter Wife" and "Burn Notice"

This summer's first fizzy TV pleasure draws to a close tonight, as "The Starter Wife" airs its sixth and final episode. I've been surprised at how much I've enjoyed getting to know Molly, Joan, Rodney and the rest of the Malibu crowd, and I'm curious to see how it all wraps up tonight (hopefully not with Molly in the arms of the judgmental, cheesy, annoying Sam, but we'll see). While not every episode of this series has been a winner, it's had some great one-liners, some funny self-referential Hollywood references, and a ton of great moments from Debra Messing, who's shown charm and range in a role that could have been two-dimensional.

After "The Starter Wife," USA will show the premiere of "Burn Notice," a show about an exposed spy (Jeffrey Donovan) trying to discover who sold him out. It seems a bit odd to pair a spy thriller with "The Starter Wife," but the show looks like it could be funny — and hey, Bruce Campbell's along for the ride as a former military intelligence officer, which should get the series some cult fans, at least.

To watch a clip from the final episode of "The Starter Wife" — in which Kenny asks Molly for a, er, really big favor — and see a preview for "Burn Notice,"

I was surprised how much I loved this show. My husband is hooked too. He's out of town and I promised not to watch it w/out him. We are also looking forward to 'Burn Notice' So lets hope USA keeps our summer nights fun :)

I hope she tells both the dudes to take a hike and walks off into the sunset with her daughter. She still needs time to get to know herself as a single woman.

I have a feeling Molly ends up with Sam....but I reallly dont like Sam (not b/c hes homeless but b/c hes sooo judgemental and downright nasty sometimes) Lou is crazy too, though. ::sigh:: cant wait to find out tonight!!

*sniff* I'm gonna miss "The Starter Wife". I hope this isn't the last we see of it. I think some episodes have been uneven. In the last episode (Hour 5), I thought Molly & Sam's fight during the brunch seemed so contrived. *rolls eyes* I did enjoy Joan & Sam's exchange in the kitchen, though. Man, she can be MEAN!!!

I'm sad this is the last episode. I hope she picks Lou, instead of Sam. Sam is too different, they can't really relate.

I like Sam. He has issues, but he's interesting...and buff. Reminds me of the kind of guy I go for...except for the whole homeless thing, of course.

Yup, not every episode has been a winner, but every episode for sure had some great moments. It was a nice summer show :-)..can't wait for tonight.

I actually like Starter Wife. It has comedy, suspense, drama and a little action.
