Jenny’s This Week on TV

Wow, talk about major shakeups in tv land this month, what with the cancellations of Runaway & Smith and the full-season pickups for Close to Home, Brothers & Sisters, Heroes, Jericho, Shark & Ugly Betty! Medium is returning mid-November, Vanished finishing up its 13 episode run on Fridays then out and Kidnapped on Saturdays starting this past Saturday and my favorite show, Veronica Mars, keeps growing in numbers. Yay! So what’s on this week? I’m going to try something slightly different this week so let’s check it out!

On Sunday, I’ll be watching The Amazing Race at 8/7c. One team gets lost while searching for a clue in Kuwait, allowing three other teams to pass them before they get back on track; a new twist to the game gives a penalty to every team that does not finish first on this leg. I knew the coal miners had the 30 minute penalty, but what causes a penalty for all the other teams?? At 9/8c, you can check out Desperate Housewives! Gaby & Carlos’ divorce reaches new levels of bitterness; Lynette co-owns a new business venture; Susan struggles with her love for two men. I keep hearing people talk about this season being better than last, so I’ve been reading and trying to catch up on last season so I can start watching this season again! At 10/9c, I’ll be watching Without a Trace on CBS. When an Albanian mobster’s mistress and their 8-year-old son go missing, Jack uses the situation to unearth evidence against him. This show never fails to keep me glued to the story, so hopefully this week will be no exception.

Monday is the return of Prison Break & Justice on FOX! Yay! I’ll definitely be watching Prison Break at 8/7c. Sucre turns on the rest of the escapees and escapes with the $5 million; Internal Affairs investigates Mahone about Tweener’s death; Lincoln determines to reunite with LJ but may be walking into a trap. Does anyone else wonder if Sucre & Michael are in cahoots? heh At 9/8c, I’ll still be glued to FOX while I watch Justice. The firm takes on a case of a teenage outcast charged with killing the school bully in a most unusual fashion. Wonder if their client is really guilty this time or not! heh At 10/9c, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is in trouble! If you are a fan, you REALLY need to watch! Ratings have been pretty bad and next week, NBC is putting Friday Night Lights in its place to try out the time slot. That doesn’t bode well for our friends Jordan, Matt & Danny! (& now that they have decided to include Amanda Pete’s real life pregnancy into the storyline, I really wanna see where they are gonna take that story!) This week, Jordan befriends the cast during an after-show party; Danny tries to get Matt’s mind off Harriet; Simon wants to hire more black writers.

Logan enlists Veronica’s help in sorting through his financial records when he is informed that his inheritance is running low; Harmony (Laura San Giacomo!) hires Keith to investigate her cheating husband. Did anyone else watch Just Shoot Me?? Having Elliot and Maya back together is going to be fantastic! At 10/9c, I’ll be watching Boston Legal to finally hear the verdict of the ongoing case! Jeffrey Coho’s defense team must do all it can to undo the damage caused by an accused murderer’s father, who makes an allegation about his son’s attraction to his mother.
