Jenny’s This Week on TV

Well, I’ll warn you now that this week is pretty darn empty, except for freakin THURSDAY, which is PACKED! lol Get ready for multiple reruns people! Hope you have some stuff saved up to watch!


There isn’t much new on Sunday. There are a few things on, including the CBS lineup. But first, check out the new episode of Reba on the CW network at 7:30/6:30c. Kyra moves back in with Reba, who catches her drinking; Brock and Barbra Jean confess that they let Kyra have an occasional beer in their house. Oh man, Reba is gonna go ballistic! Especially after Cheyenne’s alcohol problem last season!

Then check out the afformentioned CBS lineup, starting with The Amazing Race at 8/7c. The teams leave Morocco and immediately hit a detour; an argument breaks out when one racer loses faith in a partner; one team is eliminated. I can not WAIT to see the blondes go home. Hopefully it’ll be this week!

Then is Cold Case at 9/8c. Lilly and the team reopen a 1968 case involving the killing of a cop suspected of being gay. It’s hard even now for a cop to be gay, I’m sure, let alone nearly 40 years ago!

Finally at 10/9c, you can catch a new ep of Without a Trace. A young mother with less than a month to live disappears after leaving a gathering of cancer patients. Maybe she’ll have gone to try a new treatment and it’ll cure her? Very sad. :(

If you are a fan of Noah Wyle (formerly of ER), be sure and catch the tv movie, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mine on TNT. This globe-trotting action-thriller sends Flynn on a journey to uncover the fabled mines of King Solomon and a secret about his own family’s past. He’s joined by Gabrielle Anwar as a woman whose academic skills surpass even his own. Noah Wyle is YUMMY. :)

On Monday, do NOT miss the new 2-hour special episode of The Closer on TNT at 8/7c! In the first hour, on administrative leave after the shoot-out in her murder room, Brenda is called upon by an old friend to help solve the murder of an Arab teenager with ties to a terrorist cell. Working covertly, can Brenda find the killer before her team is completely dismantled by Commander Taylor? In the second hour, after reuniting with her team, Brenda must make good her promise to find a member of the Army of Allah who the CIA desperately wants to interrogate regarding a shipment of missing plutonium. But when it becomes apparent that the CIA has given her misleading information, has Brenda been set up? With the future of the Priority Homicide Division hanging in the balance, Brenda must figure out who she can trust before she becomes the next victim. This is one of my all-time favorite shows. If you haven’t seen it before, rent Season 1 on DVD and watch tonight’s episode!

Also a CAN’T MISS tonight is the fall finale of Heroes at 9/8c. The tragic events in Texas have serious repercussions for many of the heroes, their families and friends; shocking details about the moments leading up to Isaac’s predicted New York nuclear bombing. Also tonight, something MAJOR happens. I won’t spoil as to who or what, but it’s big people. BIG.

There is also a 2nd new episode tonight. Doug frantically tries to stop calls to his home from a woman who says she spent a romantic weekend with him. I quit watching this show last season cause I was tired of the way Carrie treated Doug, but I dunno, with so many shows in reruns right now, I may watch this week.

In the 2nd ep, while Earl befriends hostage-taker Diego (John Leguizamo), Randy encounters a married couple who use him to fill a void in their lives. I love me some John Leggy!

Then stick around for Scrubs. Carla goes into labor, and excited Turk strikes up the band while escorting her to the hospital; J.D. and Kim contemplate their future and their child’s future. What are your thoughts on last week’s premiere? Will this season be as good?

    You forgot the conclusion of Fashion House and Desire on Tuesday, and the premiere of Wicked Wicked Games and Watch Over Me on Wednesday. I fully expect that WWG will easily keep me attention through the winter rerun season.

  • Jenny

    Are those the shows on MyNetworkTV? Hah. I didn’t know anyone watched that channel. :D I’ll try and remember to include them next week. :)

  • thetvaddict

    Got to agree with Jenny! Who knew there were actually fans of MyNetworkTV!

  • Pinwiz

    I understand why people are a bit shocked that people are watching those MNTV shows, but Fashion House has been pure cheesy joy. The gays singing Ave Maria over a montage of all the catfights? Brilliant!
