Survivor Micronesia

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


MONDAY (2/4)
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  Series premiere.  “A Hollywood wunderkind in a career slump is persuaded by his friend to move into his famous Tinseltown apartment building with an eclectic group of tenants.”  Eclectic = show gone soon.
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 9pm):  “John discovers the figure may be bleaker than he imagined.”  I’m confused.  If he’s currently in 2007, he should have already seen what the future looks like in .
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  Season Three premiere.  “Christine gets overly nervous about sleeping with Mr. Harris () for the first time.”  I think I already saw this episode…..on .
  • Late Night With David Letterman (CBS, 11:30):  Hillary Clinton sits down with the talk show host.  Any woman who can make us forget deserves to be President.


**NOTE: Super Tuesday coverage will interrupt the normal programming schedule**

  • The Biggest Loser (NBC, 8pm):  “Chef Rocco DiSpirito judges a cook-off challenge and prepares a special meal for the winning couple.”  I really don’t think the winners should be filled with false expectations.  Life post-show will not be filled with private chefs.
  • One Tree Hill (CW, 9pm):  “Victoria stirs up trouble at Peyton’s new label and Lindsey finds out how Peyton really feels about her.”  You know what this means: cat fights!
  • House (FOX, 9pm):  “House and the team consider foul play and a sudden change of religion while treating a woman who collapsed at her wedding.”  They later realize that this really was a simple case of cold feet.
  • Nip/Tuck (FX, 10pm):  “Eden looks to Sean for help after getting in to business with Kimber and Ram.”  Is anyone else wondering where ran off to?  Her girlfriend has been sleeping with Christian and now her daughter’s now a porn star!


  • American Idol (FOX, 8pm):  “The best of the rest auditions.”  In other words - they’ll be stretching this out for as long as they can.
  • Supernanny (ABC, 9pm):  “A badly behaved 5-year-old boy overshadows his 3-year-old sister.”  Well, he is made of snakes and snails and puppy dog tails…
  • Project Runway (Bravo, 10pm):  “The seamsters rumble when they must create clothes inspired by professional wrestling divas.”  I’m guessing they’ll only get $5 for materials.
  • CSI: NY (CBS, 10pm):  “A drowning victim is discovered in a self-cleaning public restroom and it quickly becomes apparent that the death was no accident.”  Anyone who uses a public facility has to accept a certain level of risk.


  • Survivor: Micronesia (CBS, 8pm):  Season premiere.  “Ten ultra-fans of the show compete against 10 former castaways.”  The thing that separates this season from ‘s ‘Rookies vs. Veterans’ shows is the lack of alcohol.  And showers.
  • Supernatural (CW, 9pm):  “Bobby is poisoned with a dream potion and lapses into a deadly coma, so Sam and Dean take the potion themselves to enter the dream and save him, but to do so they all must confront their own personal nightmares.”  I heard Freddy Krueger was coming back, but I didn’t realize he was going to the !
  • Lipstick Jungle (NBC, 10pm):  Series premiere.  “Three powerful women navigate the business world, friendship and romance.”  I think I’ve seen this before…..on .
  • Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew (MTV, 10pm):  Series premiere.  “Dance crews from around the country audition for a touring contract.”  Associating with dancing is like having Ryan Seacrest host the pre-game festivities.


FRIDAY (2/8)
  • Gone Country (CMT, 8pm):  “The group competes in a ‘Hick Chick’ challenge involving belching, watermelon-seed spitting and a toilet-seat toss.”  I always thought my aversion to the channel had to do with my disinterest in country music.  Now I realize there’s so much more to it.
  • Friday Night Lights (NBC, 9pm):  “Riggins continues pursing Lyla despite her new relationship.”  Riggins shouldn’t worry.  I hear ‘s relationship with is like so over.
  • Psych (USA, 10pm):  “Shawn and Gus work the catwalk as male models to investigate the murder of a noted fashion designer.”  Considering all the hideous items models have been forced to wear, I’m surprised these death investigations don’t happen more often.
  • Las Vegas (NBC, 10pm):  “Security scopes out a horse-race bettor with an unblemished winning streak.”  Well if the have proven anything, it’s that all winning streaks will eventually come to an end.


  • Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (ABC, 8pm):  Three-word summary: appearance.
  • 50th Annual Grammy Awards (CBS, 8pm):  , , .  Which one of these stars just won’t be showing up?
  • 100 Most Outrageous Moments (NBC, 9-11pm):  “Outrageous clips culled from viewer submissions, TV bloopers and game shows.”  Isn’t this what is for?
  • Brothers & Sisters (ABC, 10pm):  New episode.  “A surprise visit from Jason forces Kevin to rethink his future and his romantic life.”  Hopefully a rumored end to the will help him resolve the matter.
