This Week on TV (1/14-1/20)

American Idol

(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)


MONDAY (1/14)
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  Season resumes.  “Michael suffers the consequences of solitary confinement, Sona-style.”  I hate to think we left him in there these past few months.
  • Kyle XY (ABC Family, 8pm):  Second season resumes.  “Kyle returns to the Tragers to tell them truth about his existence.”  Maybe should consider stealing this show to fill their schedule.  Otherwise, I’ll never get around to watching it.
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 9pm):  Regular day and time.  “John grows restless and sneaks out of the house to track down Charley Dixon.”  Maybe they should have recast .  He would have filled this punk role perfectly.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  Actress guest-stars as Horatio’s ex and Kyle’s mother.  Wouldn’t it have made more sense if she was on the regular ?  Then they could have linked it back to her years.
TUESDAY (1/15)
  • American Idol (FOX, 8pm):  The new season begins with auditions in Philadelphia.  Let’s guess now:  How many many people will be seen running up those museum steps??
  • Comanche Moon (CBS, 9pm):  The mini-series resumes.  I doubt even these Rangers could take down Idol.
  • One Tree Hill (CW, 9pm):  Normally a appearance would make me giggle.  Now I just see him as a hard-working parent.
  • Nip/Tuck (FX, 10pm):  makes another appearance as Dawn Budge.  You know, there’s a reason why she was just named the Most Annoying Person of 2007.


  • All My Children (ABC, check local listings):  , a.k.a. the girl who married that dude, returns as Greenlee.  You don’t understand.  This apparently is a big deal for Daytime TV viewers.
  • American Idol (FOX, 8pm):  Dallas auditions.  Maybe this is where should try rebooting her career.  She might as well do something while she’s in Texas.
  • Cashmere Mafia (ABC, 10pm):  “A gossip blog outs Caitin.”  It must have been .  He outs everyone.
  • Reno 911! (Comedy Central, 10:30pm):  Season 5 premiere.  “Dep. Wiegel looks to sell her newborn to the highest bidder, but her racist tendencies keep her from making a deal with prospective parents of color.”  If they can’t stand being disrespected, they really shouldn’t be parents.


  • Ugly Betty (ABC, 8pm):  New episode.  “Betty’s new perfume has some unexpected effects.”  Oh no.  I hope she didn’t try fragrance.  The production process alone made that woman loopy.
  • Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (FOX, 8pm):  “Miss America Lauren Nelson plays for charity.”  Can anyone else smell another spectacle?
  • Celebrity Apprentice (NBC, 9pm):  “Each team must create and operate a mobile printing station.”  The side benefit?  The contestants will save money producing copies of their resumes.
  • ER (NBC, 10pm):  New episode.  “Neela joins a hockey team.”  After 14 years on TV, you’re bound to run out of creative ideas.


FRIDAY (1/18)
  • Moonlight (CBS, 9pm):  “Mick discovers Coraline’s secret to becoming fully human again, but he also learns that it comes at a high price.”  He must pay the writers a share of his salary to see if it will work.
  • Friday Night Lights (NBC, 9pm):  “Matt discovers he is in love with an in-home nurse.”  Falling for someone who knows how to give a sponge bath is such a cliche.
  • Las Vegas (NBC, 10pm):  “Danny and Delinda meet a ‘perfect’ pair at a parenting class.”  I thought Sin City was supposed to be more exciting than this.


  • The Terminal (ABC, 8pm):  I think career has been held on standby somewhere in that airport.
  • Runaway Jury (CBS , 8pm):  Would it surprise you if I said this 2003 legal thriller was based on a novel? Didn’t think so.


  • The Amazing Race (CBS, 8pm):  The final three teams race in the season finale.  After tonight, Sundays will be completely dead to me.
  • Life is Wild  (CW, 8pm):  “Jesse helps Mbali find the strength to call off her engagement.”  Cue porn music.  That is when he makes his move.
  • Runaway Bride (NBC, 9pm):  I’m not sure what’s more shocking:  the fact that this movie is nearly 10 years old or that I’ve completely forgotten about it.
