Monday TV Picks: the new ‘The Carrie Diaries’ on the CW
TV picks for Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, include “The Carrie Diaries” on the CW, “The Biggest Loser” on NBC and “Hawaii 5-0” on CBS.
Tonight in Prime Time
‘The Carrie Diaries’
A new series (based on the books by Candace Bushnell) that looks at the life of “the Sex and the City” character Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) as she starts her junior year of high school. Since the executive producers previously worked on “Gossip Girl” and “Hart of Dixie,” we can expect more teenage drama and less of the HBO series’ frank sexuality. And probably no “Mr. Big.” Series premiere, 8 p.m. Monday on the CW (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
