This Week on TV – 3/1/09-3/7/09

Welcome to a new week of TV! Quite a few season finales this week with a few premieres and specials thrown in, so let’s see what’s on! Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday

Sunday is the season finale of 3 shows. First up is a new episode of The Girls Next Door on E! at 10/9c, followed by the season finale at 10:30/9:30c. Next is HGTV Showdown on HGTV at 9/8c. Also tonight is the season finale of Oranguatan Island on Animal Planet at 7/6c.

Tonight is the 2-hour season premiere of The Apprentice on NBC at 9/8c.

Finally, tonight is the 2-hour special, Jesse Stone: Thin Ice on CBS at 9/8c. This is the fifth installment of the Jesse Stone franchise, based on the best-selling book series by Robert B. Parker. In the latest film, Paradise, Mass. Police Chief Jesse Stone finds himself in trouble with the Town Council when he inadvertently becomes involved in a shoot-out on a Boston street. His friend, State Homicide Commander Healy, is seriously wounded and Jesse comes under investigation by the Boston Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division, which causes him to be away from Paradise for extended periods of time. Jesse further alienates the Council by firing the Paradise Police Department’s most prodigious ticket writer, resulting in a considerable loss of revenue for the town. His issues with the Council are further exacerbated when a celebrated out-of-towner shows up in Paradise in search of her missing child, and Jesse agrees to take her case. His continued defiance of the Council’s wishes now begins to jeopardize his very job.

Finally, tonight is the series premiere of College Life on MTV at 10:30/9:30c. This is not reality… This is real. We’ve taken away the producers, directors and camera ops to give viewers College Life — a completely self-produced, groundbreaking series following students as they embark on their freshman year of school in a way never before seen on television. Shot at the University of Wisconsin, Madison by the students themselves, it gives viewers a raw and unpolished intimate look at college kids telling their own honest stories in their own way. From hookups to breakups, from the pressure to make good grades to experiencing homesickness, it delivers the next level of reality access.
