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

 

MONDAY 2/23)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Jeff and Lester pester Ellie to hire their music group - called Jeffster! - as her wedding band.” That’s one way to ensure the Macarena won’t be played.

  • 24 (FOX, 9pm):  “Jack and Renee walker pursue Dubaku through the streets of Washington, D.C., with a little cyber help from Chloe.” If Bauer switched to Verizon, he could have a whole network working for him.
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  Season finale. “A winner is named after an intimate interview with editor Jess Cagle tests contestants’ inner beauty and a seminude photo shoot tests their outer beauty.” The finalists will be graded on a curve and their curves.

CW Announces Changes for Reaper, 90210, Privileged

Reaper castDid American Idol‘s return have you choosing between Hollywood and Beverly Hills? If so, CW might have just thrown you a bone.

Come March 3rd, Tuesdays will look slightly different. On that night, - originally scheduled to debut on St. Patrick’s Day - will have its midseason premiere. Its early return will mean Privileged‘s season finale will come sooner that later. (The freshman series will end its first run on February 24.)

But Reaper won’t just be sliding into ‘s old 9:00 time slot. That position will now belong to . It’s hoped the teen drama’s new home will allow it to be free of Idol‘s shadow.

If you’re having trouble keeping up with all the programming changes, make sure to check out TV Envy’s Midseason Schedule here.
