  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Matt and Amy’s families gather to celebrate the twins upcoming graduation. But when Zach has a failing grade on his report card, no one is sure whether he’ll receive a diploma after all.” Fortunately, education is not a prerequisite for reality TV stardom.

This Week on TV (11/9-11/15)


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

 

MONDAY (11/9)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie and Alan wake up together…with a woman they don’t recognize.” Strange, but significantly less awkward than two and a half men.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Ray Langston of the Las Vegas crime lab arrives in Miami to investigate after a severed leg found in the Everglades is discovered to belong to a girl who disappeared in Las Vegas a week earlier.” Horatio + Morpheus = sunglasses showdown.
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 10pm):  “Jake gets his own cell phone for his 12th birthday, and before long he racks up an outrageous bill, making Matt and Amy question whether he s ready for the responsibility.” The Learning Channel is not known for highlighting responsibility—in pre-teens or fathers of eight.
