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

 

MONDAY (11/23)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Molly fails a Spanish test and decides to stop speaking English until she masters the foreign language.” And you didn’t think anybody learned anything on this channel.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie’s male ego is bruised when he learns that he hasn’t been satisfying Chelsea.” Well, it has been a long time since he was a Hot Shot.
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 10pm):  “Jon and Kate reflect on changes in their lives and the ups and downs over the years in the series finale.” Just so I’m clear—would Jon’s weight be considered an up or a down?

Tuesday Ratings: Big Night for Biggest Loser

Had this been any other Tuesday, CBS would have likely topped all categories. But thanks to a full slate of repeats, the Eye network was only first with the viewers while NBC (finally!) managed a win in the demos.

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

 

MONDAY (10/26)
  • Heroes (NBC, 8pm):  “Claire and Gretchen go through hazing, but they’ve got other problems facing them.” They could just be blackballed from the entire network.
  • Trauma (NBC, 9pm):  “Tyler and Boone are called to a Halloween party that has gone haywire.” Every year, someone takes “Dead Man’s Party” literally.
  • Gossip Girl (CW, 9pm):  “Elsewhere, Dan is rattled when he watches one of Olivia’s on-screen sex scenes.” No one wants to think about Lizzie Maguire having sex.

Parks and Recreation

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

 

MONDAY 4/6)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Molly gets her learner’s permit, but her driving lessons get off to a shaky start.” Hours of Mario Kart Wii clearly hasn’t helped.
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Chuck’s lfe takes fortunate turns: Not only does his long-estranged father return, but Chuck scores a coveted job with Ted Roark (), a heroic figure in his life.” The guy who got Christie Brinkley to jump naked into a pool is a hero to many.
  • Surviving Suburbia (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Cynical dad (Bob Saget) accidentally starts a fire in his neighbor’s home after he reluctantly agrees to house-sit.” That’s one way to make sure he won’t be asked again.
  • Mystery Diagnosis (Discovery Health, 10pm):  “A newlywed suffers from crippling nausea.” Cold feet is what happens before the wedding.

Tuesday Ratings: CBS Inches Closer to FOX

All of a sudden, FOX is being forced to work hard for its money. Last night, new episodes of NCIS and The Mentalist put CBS within 100,000 viewers of the American Idol network. Meanwhile, an Octo-mom special had NBC tied with CBS for second place in the demos.

Survivor: Tocantins

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

 

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.
