What to Watch on New Year's Day: A Buncha Bunheads, Parenthood Returns and More
On TV Tuesday, the first day of 2013: A Bunheads marathon dances into the new year, the Tournament of Roses Parade is flower-powered, SOAPnet invites you (plus the Tree Hill gang, the West Beverly crew and Miss Veronica Mars) to an after-party and a Parenthood pair gets some well-earned alone time. Here are eight programs to keep on your radar.
11 am Tournament of Roses Parade (ABC and NBC) | What’s the best cure for a New Year’s hangover? Today‘s Al Roker telling you exactly how many daisies went into making the Dole float.
10 am – 7 pm New Year’s Day After-Party (SOAPnet) | Keep the revelry going with party-themed episodes of Veronica Mars (including Alterna-Prom!), One Tree Hill (Rachel’s graduation-party Spice Girls dance number!) and Beverly Hills 90210 (including… what the heck, they’re all worth mentioning! The slumber party where Kelly spills a deep secret, Brenda’s Spring Dance deflowering, Emily Valentine exchanges an egg and, finally, Donna Martin intoxicates!).
11 am – 6 pm Bunheads marathon (ABC Family) | Prep for the series’ Jan. 7 return with seven hours of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s dancey dramedy.
11 am – 4 pm My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic marathon (The Hub) | Kids clamoring for the tube? The little ones can chill out to 10 episodes of Twilight Sparkle and her Ponyville pals learning about friendship.
Noon The Hunger Games (Epix) | I volunteer as tribute! Oh, you’ve got this one, Katniss? Guess I’ll just hang out here with Gale, then….
9 pm Emily Owens, M.D. (The CW) | Emily’s cancer patient won’t agree to reconstructive surgery, fearing that doing so will end her career and relationship.
10 pm Parenthood (NBC) | Jasmine and Crosby help a family member who is experiencing money problems; Kristina – who’s sporting a new look — and Adam have a (much needed) night on the town. (Watch video sneak peeks!)
10 pm Storage Wars New York (TLC) | Series premiere: In back to back-episodes, Brooklyn, home to some of the city’s best and biggest rooms, hosts a turf war, then the gang heads up to Harlem to find unexpected treasures.
