This Week on TV (5/5-5/11)

CSI Miami

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (5/5)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9:00):  (The script was written by scribes.) “George Eads (CSI) has a cameo in which a CSI team investigates a death at Charlie’s house.”  I know Charlie wanted to stop Denise’s reality show, but this is quite a sweeps stunt.
  • House (FOX, 9pm):  “House believes that an actor (Jason Lewis) on his favorite soap is seriously ill after observing his symptoms on television, so he decides to intervene.”  If I had known something like that would work, I would have kidnapped Smith Jerrod a long time ago.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Sam’s affair with Todd continues while he’s still seeing a clueless Chloe.”  I’m sorry—why doesn’t Sam just kick her out of her apartment again?  She does own the thing, doesn’t she?
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Alexx is stunned when her son is the prime suspect in a murder investigation, and any help she offers could prove costly.”  Buh-bye, Khandi!

Sunday Ratings: ABC Desperate for Viewers

Although it was the most-watched show overall, the return of Desperate Housewives got off to a slow start. CBS’ Masters overrun didn’t help matters either.  In the end, the Alphabet network came away with both the viewers and the demos.

Desperate Housewives, Dana Delany

Sunday Ratings: Monk, Psych Fail to Register

The introduction of two new (yet old) shows on NBC did little to help the network.  ABC once again won the Sunday demos and came close to surpassing CBS with the viewers.

The Office

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (4/7)
  • Today (NBC, 10am):  Kathie Lee Gifford returns to morning TV this week.  And I thought the New Kids were getting old.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  New episode.  “Samantha has to move back into the apartment when she learns that she could be evicted for subletting it to Todd.”  The girlfriend you hate gets amnesia and you get to keep her apartment.  Todd has seriously been getting off easy so far.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 10pm):  “It’s an afternoon of tennis and tea for six of the ladies.”  I’ve seen what an afternoon of women’s tennis can look like on The Real Housewives of NYC.  This won’t end pretty.
  • Medium (NBC, 10pm):  “Rosanna Arquette stars as an older seductress linked to the brutal murders of two younger men.”  Maybe it’s best her relationship with Paul McCartney fizzled out.

My Name is Earl, Paris Hilton

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/31)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  The top 10 dancers take the floor tonight.  If also manages to master the fast jive, she’ll have my votes from this point out.
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  “Sheldon gets sick, but the guys refuse to take care of him because he’s such a bad patient.”  So is there such thing as a good male patient?
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  “Barney tries to find the mystery woman who’s out to ruin his reputation, and he uses the basketball tournament-bracket template to eliminate 64 suspects.”  Okay - if CBS can’t get around to finally renewing this series, I will give them 64 reasons why I hate them.
  • New Amsterdam (FOX, 9pm):  “When a murder victim in Chinatown murder reminds John of a son he lost in the early 20th century, the investigation leads to a ruthless crime family who are related to his offspring.”  And I thought Terminator‘s storyline was trippy.

Survivor Micronesia

(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (2/4)
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  Series premiere.  “A Hollywood wunderkind in a career slump is persuaded by his friend to move into his famous Tinseltown apartment building with an eclectic group of tenants.”  Eclectic = show gone soon.
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 9pm):  “John discovers the figure may be bleaker than he imagined.”  I’m confused.  If he’s currently in 2007, he should have already seen what the future looks like in .
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  Season Three premiere.  “Christine gets overly nervous about sleeping with Mr. Harris () for the first time.”  I think I already saw this episode…..on .
  • Late Night With David Letterman (CBS, 11:30):  Hillary Clinton sits down with the talk show host.  Any woman who can make us forget deserves to be President.

  • Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Travel Channel, 10pm):  Anthony travels to Singapore for his latest season premiere.  I don’t like traveling with crusty people, but I love watching them venture on TV.
  • The Daily Show/The Colbert Report (Comedy Central, 11:30pm):  Tonight Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will crank out their versions of a writer-less show.  God love ‘em for trying.
