Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! This is a great week for tv for me! I hope for you as well! Let’s get right to it and see!


SUNDAY

Sunday is the season premiere of 2 of my favorites. First up is The 4400 on USA at 9/8c. Under the leadership of a new director, Meghan Doyle, NTAC faces off against a high school student named Graham Holt who took promicin and developed the ability to make people worship him like a god. Graham is played by Cameron Bright, who was Johnny on Dark Angel and was in X-Men: The Last Stand and Thank You For Smoking.

Following that is the season premiere of The Dead Zone on USA at 10:01/9:01c. Johnny views visions of his friends in danger at a festival. He believes he has averted the disaster, but a fire later claims two people — changing Johnny’s life and the world’s fate.

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • Fans from around the world have banded together to raise funds for a full page thank you ad in the June 28th Hollywood Reporter. The ad is a tasteful goodbye to the cast & crew and also encourages readers to contribute to the Tipitina Foundation (the NOLA music organization).

    Tommy Schlamme has approved the ad, as has Tipitina’s. We’re now waiting on WB but their publicist has assured us its a mere formality. We hope to have the ad up for folks to see in the next few days.

    To date we’ve raised about $1400. Only $1,100 to go. Any mention in your blog would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Shows like “The Closer” and (hopefully) “Heartland” have changed summer from a time of nothing on TV to a time with some very good options.

    And Sam is my favorite SG-1 character, so I am happy for more Sam on Atlantis. 🙂

  • Josh

    The 4400! 😀 I’ve been re-watching past episodes for the past week. I can’t wait.

    That description says there’s a new NTAC director. Nina is gone? That’s too bad. I liked her.

  • There’s also a week-long marathon on SciFi Channel of Stargate SG1 – you can see my take on that at http://mytvmusings.com/2007/06/17/stargate-sg-1-marathon-week/

    Re: The Starter Wife – I loved the first double episode, but the episodes since have been a little weird. There are only 2 more to go (I think) so I am going to stick with it and see how it plays out, but if it was much longer than 2 more I don’t know what I’d do.

    I was thoroughly bored by Meadowlands. I don’t think i’ll watch it again.
