This Week on TV (11/10-11/16)

Anthony Edwards and Angela Bassett in ER

(You can view TV Envy’s Fall Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (11/10)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Chuck chances upon his ex-flame (Jordana Brewster) and embellishes his status in life to impress her.” We’re talking about a girl who starred in D.E.B.S.. He shouldn’t try too hard.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Gretchen gives Michael the rest of the bird book, but he suffers another seizure after deciphering it.” That pretty much sums up my feelings about bird books as well.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30):  “Sam is sentenced to community service, where she meets a troubled young woman () and decides to help turn her life around.” Sam has now become the better-looking version of Earl Hickey.
  • 17 Kids and Counting (TLC, 10pm):  “Jinger takes her driving test; the family celebrates Michelle’s birthday and responds to viewer questions.” Uhh, I have a question. Jinger? Seriously?

Faith Hill’s CMA “Joke” Sparks Controversy

Faith HillDuring last night’s Country Music Association Awards (CMAs), Faith Hill reacted to Carrie Underwood’s win for female vocalist of the year by what appeared to be her screaming “WHAT?” Well, it’s all over the Internet today and in the media—was Hill being a poor sport, a la Kanye West? Hill says no—that she was merely joking with her reaction. Says Hill of the incident, “The idea that I would act disrespectful towards a fellow musician is unimaginable to me. For this to become a focus of attention given the talent gathered is utterly ridiculous. Carrie is a talented and deserving Female Vocalist of The Year.” The camera shot of Hill when the winner was announced did not pick up the audio, but it seemed clear that she was saying the word “WHAT?” The video (of course, available on YouTube.com) also appears to show Hill storm off camera. I don’t know much about country music or the artists, but what I’ve seen of Faith Hill, it does seem out of character for her to be a poor sport. Apparently, Underwood had no hard feelings about it either—her publicist said the two singers spoke afterward and all was fine.
