This Week on TV (10/29-11/4)



MONDAY (10/29)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie’s girlfriend does not like to be seen with him in public.”  She’s afraid she’ll be attacked by .
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30):  “Sam assumes her role as a bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding, but upon arriving, she learns that the friend does not want her there.”  If only she knew that before she paid for the dress.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 10pm):  “The final four contestants bring Brad home to meet their parents.”  The dads all envy his cool beard.
  • Californication (Showtime, 10:30pm):  Season finale.  Hopefully I’ll stop singing the Chili Peppers song now.
TUESDAY (10/30)
  • The Singing Bee (NBC, 8pm):  “Ray Parker Jr. performs in a Halloween-themed show.”  I hate to think it’s possible, but someone will inevitably screw up the words to ‘Ghostbusters’.
  • It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC, 8pm):  Linus waits in the pumpkin patch in this Halloween classic.
  • The Unit (CBS, 9pm):  “Mack and Grey must keep a pop diva safe from harm.”  I thought only did stories ripped straight from the headlines.
  • Nip/Tuck (FX, 10pm):  Season 5 premiere.  McNamara and Troy move to Los Angeles and become TV consultants.  is not gonna be happy.


  • Live With Regis and Kelly (syndicated):  Their annual Halloween special will be brought to you this year in 3D.  If Kelly decides to dress like again, this could be quite interesting.
  • Kid Nation (CBS, 8pm):  “Some of the pioneers start selling goods on the street to make money.”  I didn’t realize the show would delve into prostitution so soon; must be time for sweeps.
  • Criminal Minds (CBS, 9pm):  joins the series tonight.  Every time I hear his name, I start craving lasagna.
  • CSI: NY (CBS, 10pm):  “The CSIs encounter creepy events while investigating a mass murder at the infamous ‘Amityville Horror’ house.”  They later find career still locked up inside.


  • The Office (NBC, 9pm):  (a.k.a. Karen) returns.  And I thought a Callie/Izzie catfight on Grey’s would be good; one here would be better.
  • CSI (CBS, 9pm):  “Grissom and his team go behind the scenes of an adult-horror film studio when one of the lead actresses is murdered on the set of a movie.”  Having seen 8MM, I don’t have high hopes for this version.
  • Ugly Betty (ABC, 9pm):  “Betty and Henry make a date to see ‘Wicked’, but things do not go as planned.”  They realize is now on .


FRIDAY (11/2)
  • Men in Trees (ABC, 8pm):  Trees moves to its new time slot (trading positions with ).  Apparently viewers would rather fall asleep with than Celestia.
  • Ghost Whisperer (CBS, 8pm):  “Professor Payne’s date, a fellow professor at Rockland University, refuses to have her picture taken.”  I’m gonna make three guesses:  she’s either a convict, she’s having an affair or she’s a vampire (in that case, she should probably avoid ).
  • The Next Great American Band (FOX, 8pm):  The bands must perform an original composition and a cover of a David Bowie song.  Just the thought of them ruining ‘Changes’ will keep me from watching (as if I needed a reason).


SUNDAY (11/4)
  • The Simpsons (FOX, 8pm):  ‘Treehouse of Horror XVIII’.  Omigawd, that means this show started when I was like ## years old.  Omigawd—when did I get old?
  • Life is Wild (CW, 8pm):  “Jesse and Oliver encounter a prized cheetah.”  Could its name possibly be Chester?
  • The Amazing Race (CBS, 8pm):  If you haven’t heard me scream it by now, let me do it again: VIVA LAUGHLIN GONE…..THE AMAZING RETURNS!!!!
  • Brothers & Sisters (ABC, 10pm):  “The Walkers suffer a tragic and private loss.”  What exactly would be considered a public loss?
