This Week on TV (10/11-10/17)

(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)


MONDAY (10/11)
  • 90210 (CW, 8 p.m.):  “Debbie applies for a job as an assistant to a very pregnant Jen.” She’ll do whatever it takes to stay on the show provide for her family.
  • House (FOX, 8 p.m.):  “A patient who can’t stop vomiting is also hiding secrets.” A few more trips to the toilet, and he’ll be ready to cough them up.
  • Castle (ABC, 10 p.m.):  “Castle posits time travel as a possible element in the murder of a mathematician shot by a 200-year-old bullet.” Having seen Timecop, I fully support this theory.
TUESDAY (10/12)
  • Glee (FOX, 8 p.m.):  “A Mike-Tina-Artie love triangle develops.” Things turn ugly when Mike tells Artie “the doggone girl is mine.”
  • Flipping Out (Bravo, 9 p.m.):  “Jeff and his crew take a cross-country journey to New York City to raise the curtain on their Kitchen of the Year design in Rockefeller Center.” Sorry, Zoila—that’s one more thing you’ll have to clean.
  • Billy the Exterminator (A&E, 10 p.m.):  “Billy tries to catch snakes at the bottom of a pool that’s nearly empty and very slippery.” Anyone else tired of these motherf**kin’ snakes in the motherf**kin’ pool?


  • Mythbusters Buster’s Cut (Discovery, 8 p.m.):  “Adam and Jamie test a myth about a phone book using a viewer-submitted film.” The discovery: In some cases it is possible to find things faster in the Yellow Pages than on the computer.
  • Cougar Town (ABC, 9:30 p.m.):  “Jules learns about Grayson’s fling with Laurie, but winds up more confused than angry.” She originally heard that he was spotted out with Jennifer Aniston.
  • Law & Order: Los Angeles (NBC, 10 p.m.):  “A pro surfer is murdered after he returns home to care for his ailing mother.” It was a pretty gnarly scene.


THURSDAY (10/14)
  • Bones (FOX, 8 p.m.):  “A dismembered corpse is identified as a bounty hunter, and the team find they’re not the only ones looking for a fugitive who is wanted for murder.” Man, I heard Dog the Bounty Hunter had been injured, but…
  • The Office (NBC, 9 p.m.):  “Convinced he has herpes, Michael sets out to contact his former girlfriends, including Holly (Amy Ryan), Jan (Melora Hardin), Carol (Nancy Carell), Donna (Amy Pietz) and Helene (Linda Purl).” Sounds like someone’s come a long way from his days as a 40-year-old virgin.
  • Grey’s Anatomy (ABC, 9 p.m.):  “Jackson tries to use his physical attributes in the OR.” Note to self: Schedule that procedure now.


FRIDAY (10/15)
  • School Pride (NBC, 8 p.m.):  “Communities renovate aging, decaying schools in this real-world series. Four community organizers and personalities—SWAT commander Tom Stroup, designer Susie Castillo, comic Kym Whitley and pundit Jacob Soboroff—assist students, teachers and parents as they restore a school, and in turn reestablish a sense of pride.” ‘s school will even throw in his teaching services for free.
  • Ghost Adventures (Travel, 9 p.m.):  “The guys spend a night locked inside the infamous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo., which inspired Stephen King’s The Shining.” They got a really good vacation deal from Groupon.
  • Fatal Attractions (Animal, 9 p.m.):  “A woman obsessed with venomous snakes is found dead in her home.” RIP Elle Driver.


SUNDAY (10/17)
  • Desperate Housewives (ABC, 9 p.m.):  “Susan goes public (against her will) for Va-Va Broom.” She later earns money by posting pictures of herself fresh from the shower.
  • Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal (A&E, 10 p.m.):  Season premiere. “A 12-year-old boy who is haunted by a ghost named Mr. Rosenberg is introduced to a girl who has had problems sleeping because of her troubles with spirits.” Naps on the cold bathroom floor are how I spend my nights post-spirits.
  • Mad Men (AMC, 10 p.m.):  “A surprising opportunity rears its head for both Don and Peggy, leaving them with life-altering decisions to make.” Well, she did just file for divorce from Fred Armisen...
