Weeds And The Big C Take Over Monday Nights On Showtime

Posted by on August 23, 2010 at 4:32 PM EST

the big c“Weeds” Season 6 and “The Big C” take over Monday nights on Showtime.

Coming off last weeks record breaking night, Weeds and the hit new dramatic comedy, The Big C return for their second episodes on Showtime.

Weeds kicked off with a “Thwack” last week in its season 6 opener. Shane Botwin (Alexander Gould), fresh off of his murderous streak, acts as if nothing has happened and is a little bit too cool for comfort. Could little Shane Botwin really have a deranged serial killer pent up inside him? How is Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) going to deal with the consequences that the murder of Pilar is going to bring? Will the Botwins be able to take on new identities and leave their drug dealing past behind them? We will have to continue to watch Weeds Season 6 to find out all of the answers to our questions.

Coming off the highest ratings Showtime has ever seen for a new program, The Big C returns tonight on Showtime. Last week in its debut episode, we met Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney), a middle-ages schoolteacher who has just learned that she has The Big C (Cancer). We will follow Cathy Jamison as she quickly ditches her conservative outlook on life for a more daring approach.

I have to say that I was a bit skeptical when I learned that Showtime would be creating a dramatic comedy around a cancer patient. Laura Linney delivered an outstanding performance last week and I look forward to seeing how the show progresses. While I am sure we will have a debut season full of laughs, there will also be tears shed as Cathy faces the harsh reality of being a cancer patient. It seems that millions of viewers shared my thought as well as The Big C broke ratings records for Showtime.

We kick off the amazing hour of television with a dose of murder and marijuana when “Weeds” airs tonight at 10:00PM ET/PT on Showtime.

Immediately following “Weeds,” join Cathy Jamison as she grabs life by the balls in the brand new dramatic comedy “The Big C,” which airs at 10:30PM ET/PT on Showtime.
