Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! Last week was quite a week, wasn’t it? CBS really gave me the highs, the renewal of How I Met Your Mother, and lows, the sudden and shocking cancellation of Jericho. Everything else was about as expected. What was the greatest surprise for you? Take the poll and let us know! Not a great deal on this week, but let’s get to it!

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • John

    With the summer repeat season starting. you should add some of the new cable network shows to your lists.

  • John,

    Please don’t mention the words ‘summer repeat season’ yet… I’m not ready to face the facts that May Sweeps is almost over… September seems so far away.

  • John

    I am old, I remember when the TV season had 39 new shows per year – and we still thought there were too many repeats.

  • Jenny

    Oh, I will. TNT, TBS, USA, FX, etc will all be on there, no worries. 🙂 I already put them on there, they just aren’t new for the stuff yet.

  • Thanks to the stars of Anger Management the movie the term anger management is now a household phrase.


  • CC

    Do you watch Big Love? I’d love to be reminded of some of the other shows returning soon like Kyle XY, Big Love, The 4400, etc.

  • CC

    Last time there was supposed to be a new Six Degrees on they didn’t post it. Do you think they forgot?
    BTW do you think the season finale will leave fans hanging? if we do get to see it that is lol

  • Jenny

    I dunno about Six Degrees. Are you sure it isn’t over? 🙁

    I don’t watch Big Love, but I’ll definitely include it when it is coming back on. 🙂

  • Steph

    You put that Ugly Betty is on the CW, but it is actually on ABC!

  • Anne

    One Tree Hill is on the CW!

  • CC

    Yea there was supposed to be two more episodes in the season. Maybe noones watching the ones posted online so they opted not to put the rest up or something? I dont know. It sucks cause I was watching them lol

  • Common Sense

    CW will swap One Tree Hill for Ugly Betty, and even toss in a year’s worth(less) of 7th Heaven repeats! DEAL??

    But seriously, this week is all about ONE THING: Wednesday’s 3-hr. LOST FINALE EVENT!!

  • Steven

    WOWOWOW what just happened on Desperate Housewives. I turned me head and than all i saw was feet swinging WHO WAS IT!?!?!


  • Suncho

    Woo! Studio 60! I can’t wait!

  • CC

    just fyi anyone who cares, although days late, they posted the next episode of six degrees on

  • JT

    I actually liked Lost… Was not what I was expecting other than what has been the re-occurring item the past 6 or more episodes.

    I also look forward to seeing Studio 60!!! Wasn’t happy to see that and now Jericho off the fall line-ups while reality TV continues out of control!! 🙁
