MONDAY 2/16)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Chuck and Sarah go undercover as a happily married couple in surburbia.” A happy couple in surburbia? Isn’t the whole point to be inconspicuous?
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 9pm):  “The Gosselins settle into their new home after the big move, but there’s still lots of work to be done.” And Kate will make sure Jon knows it.
  • Kyle XY (ABC Family, 9pm):  “Kyle reluctantly starts working at Latnok to repay his debt, and it’s not at all what he expects. Yet he still wants to quit, until he considers the Tragers’ current financial situation.” Back up a second—someone’s hiring?
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  “Contestants walk the red carpet with their parents, but there are also several secret tests of manners going on.” In other words, pushing mom out of your spotlight would be inadvisable.

ABC’s crossover experiment paid off big time yesterday. Despite an all-new lineup on CBS (and the season premiere of Survivor), the Alphabet network finished the night with a win in the demos. CBS, though, did place first with the viewers.

Survivor: Tocantin's Carolina Eastwood8pm

  • (4.4/13 in 18-49) kicked things off with 13.8 million.

MONDAY 2/9)

NOTE: A President Obama press conference will interfere with the previously scheduled programming.

  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Ben and Amy’s relationship hits a rough patch when Ben tells her he needs some space.” The pressure of buying a Valentine’s Day gift was just too much for him.
  • One Way Out (Discovery, 9pm):  “The host braves a high-speed barrage of tennis balls and steep plunges into kiddie pools before becoming the projectile in a human catapult.” Idiotic stunts have just become more financially appealing.
  • The Girls of Hedsor Hall (MTV, 9pm):  Series premiere. “In the opener, 12 rude and crude bad girls from the U.S. enroll in a British finishing school for a chance to transform their lives and win a $100,000 trust.” The goal? To become the next or Lily Allen.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Horatio believes that prominent defense attorney (Sean Combs) is involved in the cover-up of a murder.” Diddy doesn’t cover-up murders. That’s what his personal assistants are for.

Survivor: Tocantins

Although it may take us a while to get to forget ‘s Sugar, it’s already time for us to welcome a new cast of characters.

In just three weeks, 16 castaways - ranging from a former SWV singer to an army sergeant - will tackle the reality show’s latest installment. Even though we’ve already reached the 18th season, there are certain personalities that will always remain: the girl who claims she’s “not what you think,” the “snappy” one with “no patience,” the one who claims he knows “how to get inside people’s heads,” the intellect “who went to Yale” but will conceal that fact, and the “old woman.”

Although it was pitted against a three-hour Survivor finale, last night’s game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys was yesterday’s hottest ticket. The event gave NBC a double-win in the ratings yesterday.

A string of repeats on ABC - and a debut from Laurence Fishburne - only made CBS’ job a little bit easier last night. The Eye network took wins in both the viewers and the demos yesterday.

MONDAY 12/8)
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas (ABC, 8pm):  “The gang mounts a holiday pageant as bemoans Yuletide commercialism.” Sorry, Charlie. Not much has changed since 1965.
  • Boston Legal (ABC, 9pm):  Series finale. “Financial problems may force Crane Poole & Schmidt to be put up for sale.” If the economy keeps going the way it’s going, that might not be the only thing ABC has up for sale.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Alan considers early retirement when Evelyn offers to foot the bill for Jake’s college education.” After looking at his latest 401K statement, he then realizes that retirement won’t come anytime soon.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  “Whitney interviews for a job in New York City.” Top resume skill: Able to effectively communicate in short sentences.

Despite the predictable names on the already-disclosed list, Barbara Walters’ annual special pulled in nice numbers this Thursday night. The highly-promoted lovefest helped ABC win the demos while CBS was on top with the viewers.

MONDAY (11/24)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  After ten weeks, it all ends tonight. Sadly, I can’t even remember the names of the first two eliminated.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30):  “Sam invites boyfriend Owen (James Tupper) for dinner to meet her parents, but Owen and Howard don’t hit it off.” Seems Howard doesn’t approve of his relationship with Anne Heche either.
  • Valkyrie: The Plot to Kill Hitler (History, 10pm):  “Recalling Operation Valkyrie, a failed plot devised by German officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler.” By choosing this documentary over the version, you’ll be able to save a few more bucks for Christmas.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  “Audrina confronts Lauren and Justin after rumors circulate that the two hooked up.” By “confront,” we mean Audrina has them refer to the television interviews she’s conducted on the topic.
