Sunday November 4, 2007 11:16 pm

This Week on TV (11/5-11/11)

Real Housewives

**NBC will devote this whole week to the environment and inject something ‘green’ into all their shows.  To enjoy it, we must turn on our TVs.**


MONDAY (11/5)

**Special times for the ABC lineup tonight; Dancing With The Stars runs until 9:45 (pushing everything else 15 minutes late).**

  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  Two-hour episode.  Michael finally learns that Sara has been murdered tonight.  I’m curious to see how steely his eyes can get.
  • Everybody Hates Chris (CW, 8pm):  ‘When Chris joins the writing staff of the school newspaper, he makes up a story about a serial killer that causes a panic in the community.’  This is what people get when they don’t pay for a real newspaper.
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8pm):  ‘Marshall learns Lily’s dirty little financial secret when he and she decide to buy an apartment.’  As Suze Orman would say: “If he didn’t realize how many pairs of shoes she had, he’s equally to blame.”
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8:30pm):  ‘The guys ask Penny to join their ‘Halo’ team.’  The only time boys ask me to play Halo is when they need someone to kill.
TUESDAY (11/6)
  • Reaper (CW, 9pm): ‘Sam must trap a thrill-seeking couple who engineer fatal car-crashes.’  I never realized the crash-test dummies were life partners.
  • The Biggest Loser (NBC, 8pm):  Two-hour episode.  ‘The teams go green by recycling and learning how to implement environmentally-friendly habits into their lives.’  So how will recycling pizza boxes get them to stop eating the pizza?
  • The Real Housewives of Orange County (Bravo, 10pm):  Season 3 premiere.  Now that Jo and Slade are gone, I’ll be depending on another couple to break-up: Lauri and George.
  • Nip/Tuck (FX, 10pm):  Not satisfied with either Sean or Christian, Julia turns to love of the female kind (Portia de Rossi).  She’ll later pull an Anne Heche and change her mind.


  • 41st Annual CMA Awards (ABC, 8pm):  I don’t care that The Eagles are reuniting tonight—they’re interrupting my !
  • America’s Next Top Model (CW, 8pm):  ‘One model is critical of her competition.’  So I take it this is another repeat?
  • Kid Nation (CBS, 8pm):  ‘The pioneers sing, dance, act and perform stand-comedy in a talent show.’  Their parents are gratefully spared one more recital.
  • Gossip Girl (CW, 9pm):  ‘Chuck contemplates investing in a burlesque club to make his father proud.’  By tipping a dancer $3 a day, he’ll help to provide clean water and invest in her future.


  • Ugly Betty (ABC, 8pm):  Wilhelmina worries that her Maid of Honor, Victoria Beckham/Posh Spice, is stealing her thunder.  (Well if she’s bringing Becks with her, that would be easy to do.)
  • Grey’s Anatomy (ABC, 9pm):  ‘George and Izzie’s romantic chemistry is tested.’  Meanwhile, my stomach’s ability to handle this storyline is being tested as well.
  • Supernatural (CW, 9pm):  ‘Sam and Dean investigate mysterious drownings of people who were not near water.’  Well then how did they know they drowned?  Duh!
  • CSI (CBS, 9pm):  Special crossover episode with the team from Grey’s counters by sending plastic surgeon McSteamy to work on Betty.
  • Without A Trace (CBS, 10pm):  See CSI.


FRIDAY (11/9)
  • The Next Great American Band (FOX, 8pm):  ‘The top eight bands perform Billy Joel songs.’  I triple-dog dare someone to attempt ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’.
  • Ghost Whisperer (CBS, 8pm):  ‘Suspicious of a psychic’s investigation, Melinda looks into the disappearance of a young socialite.’  They have trouble finding her because she keeps bar-hopping.
  • Deal or No Deal (NBC, 8pm):  ‘Kermit the Frog is scheduled to appear.’  The contestants have to figure out which suitcase he’s stuffed in first.
  • Las Vegas (NBC, 9pm):  ‘The casino plays host to an environmentally-friendly conference.’  Because the Vegas strip screams ‘environmentally-friendly’?


  • The Simpsons (FOX, 8pm):  ‘Homer cannot remember the color of Marge’s eyes.’  You can’t blame the guy—her hair basically commands all the attention.
  • King of the Hill (FOX, 8:30pm):  Cotton Hill dies after eating in a Japanese restaurant.  Not knowing how to use his chopsticks, he starves himself to death.
  • Desperate Housewives (ABC, 9pm):  ‘Victor confronts Gaby about her affair with Carlos.’  He’s just now figuring out why she never sold her love den.
