Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! w00t! We found a house! So that’s one less worry for me. Frees me up to watch all the shows building up on my DVRs. Uh, not really. lol But regardless, this is a great week for tv! It’s the return of some fan favorites (Go Psych!) and the start of some new shows as well, so let’s see what’s happening, shall we?
