Jenny’s This Week on TV

What the FRAK is going on?? Is the CW nutso? I can’t even begin to describe the heartbreak I will feel if Veronica Mars is gone for good. Here’s what the CW has on the bubble: Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, 7th Heaven and One Tree Hill. If they lose even 2 of those 4, what the frak are they planning on putting in their places? More repeats like they have on Sundays? New shows? We know how well that worked this season for them. Hah. They need to smarten up. It sounds like Gilmore Girls may not be back from their own choice, and 7th Heaven really needs to go away. So give the other three another shot and actually PROMOTE THEM! Argh. I can’t even describe how frustrated I am right now! On a completely different note, my son is gone to Alabama with my mom to visit my grandparents this week for spring break, so let’s see what’s on to keep me occupied while he’s away!


Sunday, if you have been enjoying The Winner on FOX, catch the 2 new episodes tonight at 8:30/7:30c and 9:30/8:30c. On the first episode, when Josh starts hanging out with a new friend at school, Glen decides to find his own new friend who, unbeknown to Glen, is a gay man with a crush on him. Then in the season finale, Glen comes face to face with his old homeroom teacher (played by Katey Sagal of Married … with Children & 8 Simple Rules!), who ends up giving him a lesson in love. Awwww! lol
