Jenny’s This Week on TV

It’s hard to believe that the regular tv season is almost over! Over the course of the next couple of months, we will start to see the season finale of many shows as well as the series finale of others. It’s a time of year that I don’t really look forward to, because I know I’ll miss great shows, like my favorites Grey’s Anatomy til next Fall and Veronica Mars possibly gone forever after this season. It’s hard to even think about! But, carpe diem! Seize the day! Still lots on, so let’s see what’s new this week. :)


Sunday, check out the new night and time for The War at Home at 7:30/6:30c on FOX. Dave and two co-workers quit their jobs and start their own business; Hillary decides to join the Army; Larry does not want to get his driver’s license. I know a lot of you aren’t fans, but my husband & I are! Since Michael Rapaport (from Boston Public & many movies) is being courted for a new pilot next season, I think I read recently, I wouldn’t count on this one coming back. :(

Also on FOX, check out the premiere and 2nd episodes of The Winner at 8:30/7:30c and 9:30/8:30c. Narrated by a 43-and-a-half-year-old, incredibly rich and successful man, “The Winner” looks back to when the man lost his innocence and finally stepped into the world — at the tender age of 32. It’s 1994, and Glen Abbott is still living with his parents. When Alison, the only girl he’s ever kissed, moves back to town, Glen decides to make something of himself in order to impress her. It’s not in vain, thankfully — for this unlikely underdog will eventually transform from nervous under-achiever to the richest man in Buffalo in just a few years. At the moment, though, the only person Glen can truly relate to happens to be Alison’s 13-year-old son, Josh; they’re both going through “puberty.” Parental guidance comes courtesy of Glenn’s enabling mother Irene and supportive but usually angry dad Ron. It looks pretty funny, but we’ll see!

Monday, watch the season & probably series finale of The Class at 8:30/7:30c on CBS. The classmates rally around Nicole at the hospital after Yonk suffers a massive heart attack and must undergo quintuple-bypass surgery. Suck! The New Adventures of Old Christine comes back soon and I think Rules of Engagement is doing better ratings-wise than The Class, so I have my doubts The Class will be back after this season. :(

Then at 10/9c on NBC, catch the new episode of The Black Donnellys. As the family learns of Sean’s condition, Jimmy impatiently sits in a holding cell; Tommy confides in a longtime childhood friend, which leads to more than friendship.

Wednesday, watch the new episode of Crossing Jordan on its new night and time at 9/8c. A serial killer uses a blog to taunt Nigel with clues that lead to a real murder scene; Jordan finds a mistake that may have sent an innocent man to prison. I am pretty darn sure it’s the last season of CJ too. :(

Then stick around for Medium at 10/9c. Allison wakes up as her teenage self, struggling with her ability; teenage Allison dreams of her future self and a meeting with the boy next door, which helps her to solve a present-day crime. Sounds interesting! I love this show. :D

Also tonight, watch the premiere of The Wedding Bells at 9/8c on FOX. It’s a romantic dramedy about a family-owned wedding planning business dedicated to helping its clients live happily ever after… or at least until they get to the parking lot.

This is the last episode with Mary & Ed. James Caan asked to be let out of his contract so he could pursue movies or stage or something. Nikki Cox was surprised when she was fired for budgetary reasons. How will they end Mary’s storyline?? She’s got a gun… Wonder if that plays into anything.
