This Week on TV (3/24-3/30)

The Hills

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)


MONDAY (3/24)
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  The overly-promoted Britney Spears cameo finally airs tonight.  Let’s just be happy the show is only 30-minutes long.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  Nicole Scherzinger gives the girls tips on vocal expression.  Sadly, advice on releasing solo albums is not something she can dish out.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  New episode.  “A bride is murdered at her wedding.  The investigation takes the CSIs to a strip club where the bachelor party took place.”  Strip club? This would be the perfect time for another Elizabeth Berkley appearance.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  Season premiere.  I wonder if LC wore any of her own designs in Paris.  Doubt it.
TUESDAY (3/25)
  • Beauty and the Geek (CW, 8pm):  One player is injured in a game of flag football.  I’d call that a spoiler, but we all could have seen that coming.
  • The Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo, 10pm):  “Four of the housewives gather for dinner at a ritzy restaurant, but not all goes down easy when Alex annoys Bethenny.”  Seriously - did the natural foods chef really expect everyone to spell her name correctly?
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 9pm):  Results show.  If is offed tonight, I’m hoping she’ll sign off with a grunt.
  • Jericho (CBS, 10pm):  Series finale.  I never actually watched the show, but I’ll open up a can of Planters in its honor.


  • Young and the Restless (CBS, check local listings):  I’m going to celebrate the soap’s 35th Anniversary by turning up Michael Damian’s ‘Rock On’.
  • America’s Next Top Model (CW, 8pm):  “Three women get upset when one girl’s alarm clocks keeps going off during the night.”  Are they talking about the snooze alarm?  Because then they’d really hate me.
  • American Idol (FOX, 9pm):  “ performs ‘Fall’ and one of the 10 is sent home.”  I just recently saw Locke diss Clay Aiken on Perez Hilton’s show.  I’m liking her more and more every day.
  • Men in Trees (ABC, 10pm):  “Jack sees Julia for he first time since their ordeal in the Bering Sea.”  I’m assuming ‘ordeal’ was not not meant to be a double entendre in this particular situation.


  • Miss Guided (ABC, 8pm):  “Trying to fit in with the cool kids at school, Becky rebels for the first time in her life by vandalizing Bruce’s office.”  Ahhh - I will always think about my first teepeeing job quite fondly.
  • Celebrity Apprentice (NBC, 9pm):  The Brit (Piers Morgan) and the country artist (Trace Adkins) duke it out for….what exactly are they doing this for again?
  • Reaper (CW, 9pm):  “Sam has a personal stake in finding a female escaped soul who has returned to kill women who are more beautiful than she is.”  Was she also on Maxim‘s unsexiest list?
  • Eli Stone (ABC, 10pm):  “Eli’s occasional muse, George Michael, seeks his counsel.”  Having seen his cameo on Extras, I can safely say Michael will easily outdo that other singer’s stint on Mother.


FRIDAY (3/28)
  • The View (ABC, check local listings):  comes for a sit-down with the ladies.  If he survives the chat fest, he’ll probably end up putting it on his resume.
  • The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search (CMT, 8pm):  “The remaining seven women compete in the Don’t Stop Dancing challenge.”  Ooh - they should do the Electric Slide.  That dance has been known to go on forever…and ever…and ever.
  • The Return of Jezebel James  (FOX, 8:30pm):  “Coco tires of Talia’s unexpected visits and decides to get out of the loft and get a job.”  Very smart.  You should always have a backup plan in case your show gets cancelled.
  • Canterbury’s Law (FOX, 9pm):  New day and time.  You know - I don’t think it’s too late for to do a guest spot on ER.  I hear they’re welcoming old-timers for the show’s final episodes.


SUNDAY (3/30)
  • The Tudors (Showtime, 9pm):  Season premiere.  Jonathan Rhys Meyers is almost enough reason for me to fork over the dough for Showtime.
  • Cold Case (CBS, 9pm):  New episode.  “New evidence confirms that a popular deaf teen was murdered in 2006, prompting the team to launch a search for the boy’s body and his killer.”  When did Sunday nights stop being ‘family night’?  CBS sure knows how to freak the children out.
  • Oprah’s Big Give (ABC, 9pm):  “An unexpected event finds one contestant in the middle of a tragedy.”  Did Gayle and finally get into a fight?
  • Unhitched (FOX, 9:30pm):  “Gator woos his new neighbor, an animal-rights activist.”  I’m guessing his name might be holding her back.
