This Week On TV – 5/4/08-5/10/08

Welcome to a new week of TV! Several finales & premieres, lots of good new episodes & several cool specials. So let’s see what’s up, shall we? 🙂 Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday


Sunday is the season finale of Cold Case on CBS at an earlier time, 8/7c (which is followed by 2 episodes of Dexter!). Nicholle Tom (The Nanny, guest starred most recently on Criminal Minds), guests when the team investigates when a former drug addict insists she saw her son in a park three years after he allegedly died in an apartment fire.

Tonight is also the season premiere of This American Life on Showtime at 10/9c. From Showtime’s website: Compelling stories are explored every day on “This American Life,” the nearly 15-year-old, award-winning Chicago Public Radio show that boasts a devoted weekly listening audience of 1.7 million, and is heard on more than 500 stations nationally. In the same spirit of the radio show, the televised version takes 30-minute looks at stories culled from all over the country. Glass and a small team of radio producers and filmmakers spent six months on the road: traveling to Iowa pig farms, following a first-time filmmaker in California, photographing a raucous night at an Illinois hot dog stand. The result is true stories that are dramatic, emotional, and often funny.
