This Week on TV (3/31-4/6)

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.

Monday Ratings: Spears Brings Attention to CBS’ Mother

Last night, How I Met Your Mother‘s casting experiment paid off nicely for the comedy.  The show - which is not yet on the network’s renewal list - earned its best demo performance ever.  By night’s end, CBS was tops in the 18-49 group while ABC was #1 in total viewers.

Monday Ratings: Returning Shows Get Warm Welcome

This Week on TV (3/17-3/23)

How I Met Your Mother

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

 

MONDAY (3/17)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Tonight’s Season 6 premiere focuses only on the men.  I think it’s safe to say Julianne Hough won’t be making it a three-peat with .
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  New episode.  “Sheldon and Leonard are asked to a physics conference to present their work together.”  I’ve always wondered - if this show were to air on any other day, would it be half as successful?
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  New episode.  “Ted decides to live life like Barney on St. Patrick’s Day.”  You don’t want to know what they use as their lucky charms.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  New episode.  “Charlie teaches Alan how to break up with a woman.”  I hear hiring prostitutes can make a woman leave you.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 9:30):  Season 12 premiere.  “Bachelor Matt Grant, a 27-year-old British financier, meets his 25 would-be soul mates.”  Apparently in America, you can finally afford to woo twice as many women as you can in the UK.

Schedule Changes for Lost, How I Met Your Mother, House

In the past few days, more scheduling announcements have been made to mess with our heads.  While all the changes have been reflected in our convenient Post-Strike Television Schedule, here are a few of the highlights.

Josh Duhamel, Las Vegas

  • It’s been made official: Come April 24, will move from 9pm to 10pm on Thursdays.  This change will make room for the returns of Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty in their old slots.  (What this means for Eli Stone’s future is unclear.)
  • When returns on March 17th, it will be trading time slots with The Big Bang Theory.  (Mother will air @ 8:30, Bang @ 8:00.)  Meanwhile, the fate of the Neil Patrick Harris comedy beyond this season is still undecided.
  • Monday night will eventually become a new home for Bones and House will begin airing new episodes on that day come April 14; Hugh Laurie and the gang will start anew on April 28 @ 9pm.
  • Certain shows like , Bionic Woman, Big Shots and Life is Wild have not been not granted post-strike episodes because they are not being renewed.  At all.
  • Other programs like , Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Private Practice won’t be seen again until next year.
