Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to This Week on TV! First of all, congrats to two of my favorite shows, Men in Trees & Grey’s Anatomy, along with Brothers & Sisters, Ugly Betty, The Bachelor, Boston Legal, Dancing with the Stars, Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Jimmy Kimmel Live & Lost. They have joined America’s Funniest Home Videos, Supernanny & Wife Swap in the RENEWED FOR NEXT SEASON column. There are a lot of big things on this week, so let’s get right to it!


Sunday is all about season finales! At 8/7c on NBC, find out who are chosen to play Danny and Sandy on Broadway on the finale of Grease: You’re the One That I Want.

At 9/8c on VH1, check out the 1st season finale of The Surreal Life: Fame Games.

Then at 10/9c on SciFi, catch the explosive season finale of Battlestar Galactica. Good news (& possible bad?) for BSG fans… They upped the episode number for next season from 13 to 22. I had heard though, that if that happened, they would most likely make next season the last. I haven’t heard any more about that, so maybe it’s just rumors.

Finally, if you are lucky enough to have premium channels, catch the season finales of Rome on HBO at 9/8c and The L Word on Showtime at 10/9c.

Then turn to NBC at 9/8c for Raines. When a homeless woman (Laurie Metcalf from Roseanne) is found murdered in an alley, Raines’ investigation leads to a trail of deception and fraud.

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • John

    I have seen the second episode of Raines (and the first as well) and I want to like it but I am having problems.

    One is the constant repetition that the people he sees are just in his imagination. I get it; I got it the first dozen times they said so.

    Second, other than to show that Raines is a burger shy of a happy meal, I don’t see any value in the gimmick. And since that seems to be most of the show – Raines talking to the “deceased” – I find the show dragging.

    The mysteries, as mysteries, aren’t very mysterious.

    I do like Jeff Goldblum.

  • Common Sense

    1) Joely Fisher is hilarious on Til Death. Just her “looks” say so much.

    2) Can’t wait for The Office marathon!

    3) SNL is officially DEAD after last night’s Peyton Manning episode. That had to be the
    MOST UN-FUNNY episode in the history of TV. What IS it with all those lame talk-show skits? Not even the least bit humorous, NBC!! Best thing I saw, before mercifully falling asleep, was the filmed segment with Peyton throwing footballs at kids. And even that was a B-. Note to Lorne: Amy Poehler is not as funny as you apparently THINK she is. No need to stick her in every sketch. Andy Samberg is the funniest cast member…why do I rarely see him?? Sheesh, SNL is so far behind MAD TV at this stage, it’s no contest anymore (and that’s with Mad’s depleted cast, even!).

  • TellAllTim

    I can’t wait for the season finale of Wildfire tomorrow. This has definitely been the best season to date, hopefully it will wind up with a bang.

  • Jason in the OC

    Tonight is actually the SERIES finale of “Rome.” Been a great show, sad to see it go.

  • Jenny

    Oh! I misread that about Rome. Suck! I know a lot of fans of it. :(
