Best Wedding Shows on TV: From 'Bridezillas' to 'Big Redneck Weddings'

by Tara Spicer, posted Aug 22nd 2010 10:00AM

There's no denying the addictive powers of the wedding show ... especially when you throw in an angry bride, a frazzled groom, and a budget that makes Chelsea Clinton's nuptials look like a backyard potluck.

But of course, not all brides are bridezillas, not all grooms are miserable, and not all weddings come with a million dollar price tag. There are also those shows that are filled with happy, normal people. You don't have to be a bride (or a groom) to enjoy these seven wedding shows ...

Oscars'The 81st Academy Awards'
(Sun., 8PM, ABC)
Hugh Jackman's hosting, a Baz Luhrman musical number will pair Jackman with Beyonce and Zac Efron and producers are talking about having new mom M.I.A. perform her Oscar-nominated 'Slumdog Millionaire' song from a bed.

In other words, this Oscar telecast could have us all longing for the days when Rob Lowe did a little song-and-dance with Snow White.

Amongst all the, ahem, unique telecast plans, a few little golden guys will also be doled out, of course, with favorites including comeback kid Mickey Rourke ('The Wrestler') for Best Actor, Kate Winslet ('The Reader') for Best Actress and the aforementioned gem 'Slumdog' for Best Picture.

Lil Wayne'The 51st Annual Grammy Awards'
(Sun., 8PM, CBS)
It could be a great night for rapper Lil Wayne – who leads all Grammy nominees with eight nods (including Album of the Year).

As for viewers, the Grammys have been, in recent years, a hodgepodge of performances by great artists and some who, were maybe great, but were also largely unknown to much of the audience.

The Grammy folk apparently took criticism of those shows to heart for tonight's show, which will include tunes by superstars U2, Kid Rock (who's up for two Grammys), Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, Coldplay, Paul McCartney (with Foo Fighter Dave Grohl on drums) and teen dreams (and Best New Artist nominees) the Jonas Brothers.

(Sun., 8PM, Fox) 7th season premiere
Jack Bauer's on trial for his interrogation tactics, Tony Almeida's alive and CTU has been disbanded, which proves to be just the right amount of drama to get this new season off to a great start.

Fans have been waiting for more than a year (that darn writers strike!) for new episodes, and these first four hours (which continue Monday night at 8) were worth the wait, as the first female President of the United States (Cherry Jones) faces a national security threat and calls on – who else? – Jack to help ferret out the terrorists behind it.

And it's that search for the bad guys that leads to a very familiar – and previously very dead, or so we thought – face.

24 redemption'24: Redemption'
(Sun., 8PM, Fox)
Jack's back, in this two-hour '24' movie that sets up the show's seventh season in January.

What's the man who's saved the world from terrorists and crooked presidents been up to since last we saw him? He's been working as a missionary in Africa, helping a friend run a school, while avoiding U.S. government officials who want to question him about all his world-saving activities.

Jack's quest for peace is interrupted when a vicious rebel planning to overthrow the African government tries to turn the school's children into soldiers, putting Jack in yet another impossible situation: Does he save the kids from almost certain death or does he flee and save himself from a government inquisition? C'mon, he's Jack.

Living Proof'Living Proof'
(Sat., 9PM, Lifetime)
Harry Connick, Jr. steps away from his usual comedic and musical stylings for this fact-based movie, the uplifting and heartbreaking tale of cancer research doctor Dennis Slamon's journey to get the drug Herceptin approved for breast cancer treatment.

Oscar winner Renee Zellweger is a producer and Bernadette Peters, Regina King and Angie Harmon co-star in the story, which chronicles Slamon's battle against bureaucratic maneuvering and money issues before Herceptin was finally approved in 1998.

Connick and his female cohorts are terrific in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month flick, making a box of Kleenex a necessity for watching the drama unfold.
