This Week on TV – 1/25/09-1/31/09

Welcome to a new week of TV! How was last week, hmm? The return of some big fan favorites, right? Some good stuff this week, too, so let’s get to it! Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday

Sunday is the 2-hour special on TNT AND TBS, The 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at 8/7c.

Tonight is also part 1 of 2 of the miniseries The Last Templar on NBC. The 2-hour episode tonight starts at 9/8c. At the New york Metropolitan Museum, four horsemen dressed as 12th century knights storm the gala opening of an exhibition of Vatican treasures and steal an arcane medieval decoder. For archaeologist Tess Chaykin (Mira Sorvino) and FBI agent Sean Daly (Scott Foley, The Unit), this is just the start of a suspenseful game of cat and mouse as they race across three continents in search of the enemy — and the lost secret of the Knights Templar. It also stars: Anthony Lemke, Kenneth Welsh, Omar Sharif and Victor Garber (Alias & Eli Stone).
