Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! Not a ton of new tv on this week. A few finales, a few premieres, a few ho-hum days. The summer season hasn’t kicked off fully yet and last season is pretty much over, so not a lot going on. Take what you can get, though! 🙂 I just traded in one of my 2 DVR’s for another one with a bigger hard drive. So I am set for the summer season and for next Fall! Yay!

  • Josh

    As much as I hate to admit it, the only new episodes I’ll be watching are the teen soaps Hidden Palms and One Tree Hill on the CW. Otherwise, I’ll just finish catching up on Scrubs (I love this show!) and maybe watch a repeat here and there.

  • A Life? I don’t think I’ve heard of those…

    I know it is on the Travel Channel &it isn’t exactly a regular show, but Friday is the new Most Haunted Life first time in the US. It’s going to be live for like 7hours. I think I might even tune in to see what all the fuss &the half a million advertisements are all about!

  • er

    I have been seeing the ads for “The Starter Wife” for a while now — and it is finally here! I think this looks really good and I absolutely love Debra Messing so I can’t wait to check this out on Thursday when it finally premieres.
