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


MONDAY (2/1)
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “A convicted killer () on death row receives a 24-hour stay of execution after doubt is cast on his guilt.” New evidence suggests he may have been given that girl’s underpants.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10pm):  “A firefighter whose home overflows with his possessions.” That’s just a fire waiting to happen! Oh -  maybe that’s the point.
  • Damages (FX, 10pm):  “Patty and Phil, locked in their bitter divorce battle, find one piece of common ground: their dog.” Phil - if you love the dog, just give it to her. Trust me.
  • Lost (ABC, 9pm):  Season premiere. “The sixth (and final) season begins in the aftermath of the H-bomb detonation, as the survivors learn ‘when’ they are.” Unfortunately, the castaways will later learn that they’ve been positioned directly against .
  • Wild Recon (Animal, 9pm):  “Donald Schultz travels to Australia, where he explores the rain forests and the Great Barrier Reef to extract samples from the deadly taipan snake. His mission is threatened when he’s bitten by a snake in a remote area.” Ooh - never good to be bit where the sun don’t shine.
  • The Millionaire Matchmaker (Bravo, 10pm):  “Patti revisits a client named Shauna, whom Patti clashed with in the past. This time, Shauna is willing to embrace Patti’s advice and date an age-appropriate men.” It would be nice to drink with some of legal age again.


  • The Middle (ABC, 8:30pm):  “Frankie agrees to stop yelling at her kids if they do their schoolwork and chores.” She took one of the Supernanny’s tricks and made it her own.
  • Modern Family (ABC, 9pm):  “Claire’s memory is tested by a visit from an old friend (Minnie Driver).” Remember when Matt Damon dumped her on live TV? I do. Awk-ward.
  • Ugly Betty (ABC, 10pm):  “Wilhelmina is beside herself when she learns that she has a drag-queen impersonator.” You know your show’s being canceled when they start bringing in the cheaper lookalikes.


  • The Office (NBC, 9pm):  “Pam and Jim hope to get accepted into a desired local day-care center.” In order to pay off Conan O’Brien, NBC’s center had to cut back on snacks and art supplies.
  • The Real Housewives of Orange County (Bravo, 10pm):  “Tamra decides to get a tattoo of her hubby’s name on her ring finger.” The Tamra of 2010 is going to regret what the Tamra of 2009 did.
  • The Sarah Silverman Program (Comedy, 10:30pm):  Season premiere. “Laura tries to convince Sarah to become more responsible by telling her she was born a hermaphrodite.” Something Jimmy Kimmel - and Matt Damon - would have liked to know.


FRIDAY (2/5)
  • Medium (CBS, 9pm):  “Allison keeps seeing the face of the same man in every person she encounters, including her husband.” All she knows is that his name is and he’s quite hung.
  • What Not to Wear (TLC, 9pm):  “A man who is notorious for his wardrobe - and not in a good way - gets fashion advice.” Unfortunately, Jon Gosselin gets his Ed Hardy t-shirts for free.
  • Spartacus: Blood and Sand (Starz, 10pm):  “Crixus is desired by a number of noblewomen, but he is enamored with one of Lucretia’s slaves.” That maid outfit gets them every time.


SUNDAY (2/7)
  • Puppy Bowl VI (Animal, 3pm):  “The sixth annual adoption festival features a range of canine youngsters playing on a miniature football field, as well as a halftime show put on by kittens.” Although supportive of the adoption theme, PETA will still protest on behalf of the exploited animals.
  • Super Bowl XLIV (CBS, 6:25pm ET):  “New Orleans vs. Indianapolis in Miami Gardens, Fla. Four-time league MVP Peyton Manning and the Colts bid for their second title in four seasons, while this is the first Super Bowl in franchise history for New Orleans and its top-ranked offense.” Without a Tony Romo or appearance, I won’t know who to root against.
  • Undercover Boss (CBS, Post-game):  Series premiere. “Corporate executives work undercover in their own companies to personally examine their organization’s operations. In the opener, Waste Management president Larry O’Donnell pretends to be a new hire within his company. He works at a recycling plant and two landfills, rides along on a garbage truck and cleans porta-potties.” O’Donnell will later give himself a raise when he realizes his s**t really does stink.
