This Week on TV – 3/8/09-3/14/09

Welcome to a new week of TV! Several finales this week, several premieres and a few interesting specials, including Saturday Night Live‘s Will Ferrell special as his George W. Bush character. So let’s see what’s on! Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday

Catch the season finale of Secret Diary of a Call Girl also on Showtime at 10:30/9:30c.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Candy Girls on E! at 10:30/9:30c.

Monday

Monday is the series premiere of Castle on ABC at 10:02/9:02c. Wildly famous mystery novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion, Desperate Housewives & Firefly), who is bored with his own success, learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes depicted in his novels. Rick is soon questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic, The Spirit), a very bright, aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under tight rein. Rick and Kate’s styles instantly clash, yet sparks begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle steps in to help find the killer. And once that case is solved, he and Beckett build upon their new relationship as they look to solve strange homicides in New York as much fun as one can have with death & murder. Castle is kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother, Martha Rodgers (Susan Sullivan, Dharma and Greg) and quick-witted teenage daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story).

Tonight is also the 2-hour season premiere of Dancing with the Stars on ABC at 8/7c, before the series premiere of Castle.

Finally, tonight is an 87-minute special on HBO called Will Ferrell: You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W. Bush. Superstar comedian/actor Will Ferrell stars in his first HBO special, a live, 90-minute performance of his limited-run Broadway show, You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush. In the special, Ferrell will inhabit one of his favorite political characters from Saturday Night Live, President George W. Bush, assuming the guises of several “Ws” through the years, including the “cowboy” Bush, the “flight suit” Bush, and the (plain old) “suit” Bush. Along the way, Ferrell-as-Bush provides insights into the Bush’s childhood, his time at Yale, his stint as a major-league baseball co-owner, his emergence as a political figure, and his cherished if checkered tenure in and (frequently) out of the White House.
