Jenny’s This Week on TV

Busy weekend ahead! Sick husband, lots to do before Thanksgiving, when we head down to Oklahoma to visit my family. What are your plans? Not a lot of time so will get right to it!

On Sunday, why not spend the night watching some comedy on FOX? At 8/7c, watch The Simpsons. Lisa helps Moe become a published poet, but when a literary conference features him, he takes all the credit for his success.

Then at 8:30/7:30c, stay for American Dad when Steve’s new relationship with his girlfriend gives Francine empty nest syndrome & Roger tries to enroll in college with Haley.

At 9/8c, stay for Family Guy. Lois volunteers to teach a sex-ed class at the high school when she learns that Chris has some incorrect information on the subject.

Then finally at 9:30/8:30c, the only one of the 4 I watch is The War at Home. A “Girls Gone Wild” video upsets Dave; Larry tries to replace swear words with the word “love.” This show is so wrong that it’s too funny not to laugh.

I can’t forget to mention the season premiere of Reba on the CW network! There are 2 new episodes tonight. FINALLY! :) In the first, called Let’s Get Physical, Barbra Jean shows off her new sleek figure and staunch dedication to the gym, which Brock fears is about spending time with her male trainer. In the second, called Just Business, Houston’s premier real estate agent (Tim Meadows) contacts Reba and Van for a meeting, exciting Reba but concerning Van that he will be her assistant. These start at 7/6c, not the normal primetime hour, so be aware! (Unless you are here in Kansas, and then you have to catch it at 10/9c after college basketball.)

At 10/9c, flip over to ABC for Brothers & Sisters. Sarah, Tommy and Kevin find William’s most shocking secret when they set out in search of his lost treasure; Justin makes a startling revelation about his enlistment when he returns from the hospital.

    Then stick around for House at 9/8c. House challenges his co-workers to correctly diagnose the ailment of an 18-year-old heart-attack patient (Patrick Fugit). Patrick Fugit guest starred on several shows and was in quite a few movies, so you may recognize him, although I don’t. Wonder what will happen with Tritter this ep!

A car accident involving two foster children leads detectives Beck and Stabler to the foster parents and questionable medical practices involving a controversial “rebirthing” therapy.
