Tonight’s television features the unearthing of Big Top Pee-wee, the series finale of Burn Notice, and an extended preview for the handful of new shows appearing on CBS this fall.
Big Top Pee-wee – The Hub, 8pm
Pee-wee’s Big Adventure is a movie that holds up and is still one of my go-to pop culture references. Big Top Pee-wee is neither. I remember going to the dollar show when the movie was in original release, but I think I fell asleep? It isn’t directed by Tim Burton and is not a sequel in the traditional sense (I don’t think the bike makes a cameo). However, we should all TiVo this and see what’s going on.
Burn Notice – USA, 9pm
One of the earliest USA original series ends its run tonight. Michael is working to regain the trust he has lost over the years while his nemesis James tries to bring him down once and for all. Will Michael get burned for good?
2013 CBS Fall Preview – CBS, 8:30pm
CBS won’t be kicking off its Fall season until the 23rd (save for the premiere of Survivor on Wednesday) and they haven’t made their pilots available ahead of time for sampling. However, there isn’t too much new on the CBS schedule, which is why this special is only a half-hour. This will have extended clips of The Crazy Ones, Mom, Hostages, The Millers.
