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.

Flipping Out

(To get a look at TV Envy’s 2009 Fall Programming Schedule, click here.)


MONDAY (8/17)
  • Top Gear (BBC, 8pm):  Season premiere. “The season opens on the Isle of Man, where the hosts tests the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the BMW M6 and the Porsche 911 Carrera S.” They had me at “Isle of Man.”
  • Dating in the Dark (ABC, 9pm):  “Contestants search through their dates’ cars, hoping to find personality clues about one another.” Crushed Cheerios in the backseat or hair fibers in the trunk means it’s time to walk away.
  • Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Travel, 10pm):  “The host visits Bangkok to experience the local customs and cuisine.” One night in Bangkok and be full of oysters… (Sorry, couldn’t help it.)
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10pm):  Series premiere. “A series profiling people with compulsive-hoarding disorder. In the opener: a woman who hoards food in two freezers and four refrigerators.” She was just stocking up for the 2012 block party.

Vera Wang Might be ‘Dancing’ Next Season

Vera Wang might be dancing in season 9!E! Online recently reported that a source close to fashion designer Vera Wang divulged a possible entrance into CBS

ABC network’s hit show, .

The 2005 CFDA winner is no newbie to reality television. She has appeared on both Project Runway and The Apprentice; however, she has never assumed the role of contestant on any show.

Widely-regarded for her wedding gowns, most are unfamiliar with Wang’s past as a figure skater, which obviously helps out in the competition (Kristi Yamaguchi, anyone?). She later went on to support her interest in the sport by designing costumes for Michelle Kwan and Nancy Kerrigan. Looks like she’ll be returning to her roots if she does get the opportunity to dance.

Both Wang’s and ABC reps declined to comment.

Project Runway to Air this Summer on Lifetime

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Bravo, Cable, News,

Project Runway's Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum

is finally back in style.

After months of litigation between NBC Universal (owner of Bravo), The Weinstein Company and Lifetime, the hit reality show now has somewhere to go. Starting this summer, Season 6 will air on Lifetime.

The trouble began last year when the move to the new cable channel was first announced. NBCU, upset by the loss of its popular program, filed a lawsuit. That action eventually led to countersuits and a preliminary injunction.

Today’s agreement means Runway will be at its second home for at least five seasons. “The Weinstein Company will pay NBCU for the right to move Project Runway to Lifetime. All of the parties are pleased with the outcome,” NBC Universal announced in statement.

No start date yet has been announced for the next installment. The Fashion Week finale was taped back in February.

Project Runway Carries On Without a Home

Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum

As they say, the (fashion) show must go on.

Even though Lifetime and Bravo are still fighting over Project Runway’s future, production on the reality program has been going on as planned. For attendees of New York’s Fashion Week, that meant viewing collections from a bunch of unknown designers. Literally unknown.

At today’s Bryant Park taping, Season 6’s final three contestants got the opportunity to see their clothes on the runway. Unfortunately, unlike in seasons past, the designers weren’t allowed a chance to speak. Nor did anyone know whose creations they were. In an attempt to keep the outcome a surprise, the collections were presented to the audience blindly.

This Week on TV (10/13-10/19)


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


MONDAY (10/13)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Sarah’s ex-flame and partner, Bryce Larkin, makes an unforeseen return and goes undercover with Sarah as an overly affectionate couple.” Unforeseen return? I predicted he would come back last year!
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 9pm):  Season 5 premiere. “Matt travels to Baghdad to help dwarf children in need of medical attention.” By doing so, he has now milked new meaning out of the show’s title.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30pm):  Season 2 premiere. “Sam teams with her mom in a dance competition against Regina’s nemesis (Cybill Shepherd) and her partner, who just happens to be a ringer.” Why do I always find myself rooting against Cybill Shepherd?
  • My Own Worst Enemy (NBC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “The implant in Henry Spivey’s brain that separates the two identities begins to malfunction, leaving each side fighting for dominance.” On one side, we have the who excelled in Heathers. On the other side, we have the Slater who stunk in Mobsters.
