This Week on TV – 2/17/08-2/23/08

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! Lots of good stuff on this week. And since the strike is over and we are going to be seeing the return of many of our favorites in a couple of months, it’s time to celebrate! So let’s get to it and see what’s going on, shall we? Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday


Sunday is the 2-hour pilot special (if good enough ratings, will turn it into a series? If they haven’t decided that already. I dunno. lol) of Knight Rider on NBC at 9/8c. It’ll be worth it to watch just to see if they completely wreck it or not. heh

It’s also the network premiere of Dexter on CBS at 10/9c. If you haven’t caught this show before, NOW IS THE TIME! 😀 It is so terrific. I’ve heard they didn’t ruin it by having to tone parts down when they took it off cable, so… Definitely check it out!

    yep, knight rider fate is depending on its ratings.
    dexter should be funny, when doakes says ‘mother lover’. 😀
    pussycat reality is back too. i love that show 🙂
    and antm is in cw, please correct in the description 😉

  2. Jenny says:

    Oops. Will try and fix now. My internet is having MAJOR issues. heh

  3. szucsitg says:

    yeah, i’ve read about it. but what’s the problem? if it’s public…

  4. Jenny says:

    Ugh, I dunno. The last few days, my connection has been awful. I have cable internet and a speedtest download works fine but connecting to ANY website is horribly slow, IF it works at all. It’s something about the upload. The speedtest basically freezes when it gets to the upload portion.

    We were connected through a wireless router and figured that might be the cause but we connected straight to the cable modem and i’m still having issues. They are coming out to look at it but can’t come out til Wednesday. *cry* lol

    Anyway, I’m going to switch to AT&T Uverse so… Yay. 😀

  5. szucsitg says:

    thanks for the answer 🙂 i hope it’ll be good asap 😉

  6. Heather says:

    Um, on Thursday it say both American Idol and Don’t Forget the Lyrics will be on at 9pm. Unless they can perform miracles I don’t think that can occur. 🙂

    I hope your internet is working better for you now. You know, if it’s anything like mine, it’ll be working fine when they come out to “fix” it.

  7. Jenny says:

    Hah, yeah, I have it fixed for the daily. I’ll try and fix it on here too. lol

    Yeah, it started working again pretty well for a day or so until late last night when it crapped out again. So glad I hadn’t cancelled the appointment yet. lol I got signed up for AT&T Uverse yesterday too. Yay. It won’t be installed til March 5th tho. Oh well. 🙂 (Google it!)
