Jenny’s This Week on TV


Sunday is all about the 3 hour Survivor on CBS at 8/7c. Jeff has a few more suprises up his sleeves for the remaining players, so if you are a fan of this show, don’t miss it tonight!

Also important tonight is the season finale of 4 shows: Sleeper Cell & Dexter on Showtime and Breaking Bonaduce & Celebrity Paranormal Project on VH1.

On Dexter, Dexter follows clues in his rescue attempt; Rita’s ex tries to convince her that Dexter is too dangerous. I have a friend that’s recorded all the eps so far so I can’t wait to get a DVD to watch when it finishes. I’ve heard this show is great!
