Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! I dunno about you guys, but I am simply amazed at how many new shows are still kicking around and haven’t been cancelled yet. Maybe I’m remembering wrong, but it seems like normally at this time, we’d have had several more cancellations than we do this season. What do you think? Let’s see what’s happening this Halloween week!

Sunday

Sunday is a new episode of Shark on CBS at 10/9c. When three ultimate fighters commit suicide, Sebastian’s team charges the league’s CEO (Rockmond Dunbar from Prison Break) with murder for pushing steroids on his fighters.
