This Week on TV (2/18-2/24)

America's Next Top Model


MONDAY (2/18)
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  Tonight may be the end of the show as we currently know it.  Maybe Michael can finally let go of that steely gaze now.
  • Dance War (ABC, 8pm):  The next contenders will be announced during the spinoff’s season finale.  Finally, a reason for me to watch.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  Robin Antin is searching for a gal to complete an entirely different musical act.  With Danity Kane already taken, she had to settle for the 2nd crappiest group name available.
  • My Dad is Better Than Your Dad (NBC, 9pm):  “This competition series features fathers and their children in challenges that test the patriarch’s strength, intelligence and parenting skills.”  Since when did NBC start stealing ideas from ?

TUESDAY (2/19)
  • American Idol (FOX, 8pm):  The twelve male finalists start competing tonight.  I am begging people right now to get past those young and sweet Sanjaya-types.  Let’s focus on the vocals, fans!
  • One Tree Hill (CW, 9pm):  “Mouth tries to redeem himself in the eyes of a potential new love interest.”  I’m no professional matchmaker, but I think a name change could help.
  • Carpoolers (ABC, 9:30):  “Aubrey invites the carpoolers to his daughter’s piano recital and rethinks their friendship when only Dougie attends.”  He was really hoping no one would show; now he’ll have to return the favor to Dougie someday.
  • Nip/Tuck (FX, 10pm):  “In the fifth-season finale, a visitor from Christian’s past returns with revealing news.”  I’m gonna take a wild guess and say that it’s someone he’s slept with.


  • American Idol (FOX, 8pm):  If you want to make things more exciting, predict which one of the twelve ladies has scandalous photos somewhere in her past.
  • America’s Next Top Model (CW, 8pm):  The 10th season begins with new judge Paulina Porizkova entering the picture.  I sense we’ll see another tutorial on music video acting soon.
  • Wife Swap (ABC, 8pm:  “A former colonel who works three jobs while her husband takes care of their home swaps with a rock-and-roll trophy wife.”  Oh - this has got classic written all over it.
  • Supernanny (ABC, 9pm):  Jo Frost can help Wendy Wilson get her four kids in line, but she can’t make people care about Wilson Phillips anymore.


  • American Idol (FOX, 8pm):  Additional night added.  Four contestants are voted off tonight.  FOX will now add another evening to the win column.
  • Survivor (CBS, 8pm):  “The fans and favorites apply war paint and engage in a physical battle that requires them to tackle each other in the water to win a reward.”  Wow.  War paint.  This season really does have new twists.
  • Celebrity Apprentice (NBC, 9pm):  “The celebs are tasked with producing and presenting a live 10-minute segment on a home-shopping network.”  With any luck, this is where their careers will end up.
  • Lipstick Jungle (NBC, 10pm):  “Victory introduces Joe to the gals.”  Mr. Big Joe later freaks out and heads to Paris.


FRIDAY (2/22)
  • 1 vs. 100 (NBC, 8pm):  The season ender includes an appearance from Nicole Eggert.  Heck - if can have a career resurgence, so can she.
  • Gone Country (8pm, CMT):  “The cast members meet with journalists to learn how to handle the media.”  Rule #1:  Never let anyone know you had to ‘manually’ assist your spouse in the bathroom.
  • Price is Right (CBS, 8pm):  hosts another primetime version of the show.  BTW - are the female assistants even called Barker’s Beauties anymore?  Are they now Carey’s Cuties?
  • Amne$ia (NBC, 9pm):  “Contestants test their memories in this comical quiz show featuring questions based on their lives.”  All the laughing and ridiculing will be supplied solely by host .


  • Saturday Night Live (NBC, 11:30pm):  Tina Fey will help welcome back the program.  She will then leave before the quality starts going downhill again.


  • 80th Annual Academy Awards (ABC, 5:30pm PST):  The writers strike is now over and is signed on as host.  The only way this event could get any better is if someone manages to pull a major upset.  Go !
  • Barbara Walters Special (ABC, After the Oscars):  The veteran journalist interviews Miley Cyrus, Ellen Page, Harrison Ford and Vanessa Williams.  With any luck, we won’t be seeing her work a lasso.
  • Dexter (CBS, 10pm):  “The Ice Truck Killer leaves clues for Dexter - in Dexter’s house.”  Michael C. Hall’s used to morbid stuff like that.  He used to live in a funeral home.
