Monday on TV: Grown men are "Mama's Boys of the Bronx" on TLC

TLC couldn't get people to watch a worthwhile show like "All-American Muslims." So it's back to junk like Mama's Boys of the Bronx (11 and 11:30 p.m., TLC), the latest in a long line of mind-numbing "reality" shows.

It follows five sort of "Jersey Shore"-ish men - many of them pushing 40 - who live at home with their mommies.

By the way, it's been 14 years since TLC became simply TLC, dropping The Learning Channel from its thoughts and programming.
