TV tonight: 'Bieber,' 'Futurama,' 'Soul Man'
Posted June 19, 2012
•It's N-Bieber-C for the next two nights as the network goes musical for the two-part special Justin Bieber: All Around the World (NBC, tonight, 8 ET/PT).
Well, yes, of course this two-hour mix of concert clips and no doubt complimentary behind-the-scenes footage is meant to promote the release of his new album — but that's one promotion his fans will surely be happy to see.
So if you have young Bieber lovers in your household, think back to whatever teen idol lit up your childhood and let them enjoy in peace.
•Here's something Futurama (Comedy, 10 ET/PT) fans will enjoy: the back-from-the-dead cartoon returns for another 13-episode season. It kicks off with a double run.
•TV Land debuts its latest sitcom, The Soul Man (10 ET/PT), which stars Cedric the Entertainer as a R&B star who chucks it all to become a preacher, much to the dismay of his flashy wife (Niecy Nash) and spoiled teenage daughter (Jazz Raycole).
It's a bit obvious and old-fashioned, but it's amusing at times and amiable throughout — and if stereotypes run rampant, consider the network source. Subtlety is not TV Land's stock in trade.
