Jenny’s This Week on TV

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! Things are definitely slowing down in the world of TV. Only a handful of new episodes each night from now until the new shows start up in January. But that’s a good thing for my DVRs! heh Let’s see what’s happening this week!

Also tonight is the 3-hour season finale and reunion special of Survivor on CBS starting at 8/7c. Who will take it home? I dunno and frankly, at this point, not sure I care. Todd, I guess. Only cause I don’t like him the least. lol
