This Week on TV – 2/22/09-2/28/09

Welcome to a new week of TV! Lots of stuff on this week but not quite as much as normal. Everyone is gearing up for sweeps next month! But still plenty on, so let’s see what we’ve got, shall we? Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday

Sunday is the season finale of Confessions of a Teen Idol on VH1 at 8/7c.

Tonight is mostly all about the specials. On ABC, starting at 7/6c is the 1-hour The Barbara Walters Special, where she will question stars such as Anne Hathaway, Mickey Rourke, Hugh Jackman, The Jonas Brothers & more.

Then following that at 8/7c is the 30-minute Oscar’s Red Carpet 2009, which is then followed at 8:30/7:30c by the 3-hour The 81st Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Hugh Jackman.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Dark Days in Monkey City on Animal Planet at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c. Through a unique combination of live action and graphic novel-style animation, this new series descends upon the magical isle of Sri Lanka in the deserted city of Polonnaruwa, where large populations of gray langurs and toque macaques live on the streets. Once ruled by Buddhist and Hindu kings, the temple city is now home to a myriad of gangs and troops that fight to survive in this abandoned city where food is scarce and drama is plentiful. Revealing intense tales of love, treachery, betrayal and triumph, their stories are all part of the Smithsonian Primate Project, the longest-running study of primates in the world.

Tonight is also a 1-hour special on Bravo of The Real Housewives of Orange County at 9/8c.

Finally, President Obama is addressing Congress tonight so ABC, CBS, FOX & NBC are all covering the speech, which starts at 9/8c. FOX, CBS & ABC are all 90 minutes, while as far as I can tell, NBC is only 60 minutes.

Friday

Friday is the series premiere of American Loggers on Discovery at 10/9c. One family, thousands of acres and endless challenges to keeping their business afloat. Meet the Pelletiers — nine brothers balancing family feuds with nature’s harsh realities as they timber harvest in Maine’s rural northwest backcountry. Pelletier Inc. is a classic American story, a logging business started half a century ago with one hundred dollars, one truck and one man: Gerald Pelletier. Now, his sons run the company, a vast timber harvesting enterprise, dozens of men, hundreds of machines working thousands of acres in what is literally a deadly business. Horrific weather, soaring fuel prices and a slumping economy have created a perfect storm that could wipe out a family. Throughout the year, the Pelletier brothers and their sons – Rudy , Eldon, Danny, Larry, Gary, Wayne, Jeff, Jason and Matt – lead their men into the woods of northern Maine to claw out a living, running monster trucks along the legendary logging route known as the ‘Golden Road,’ a desolate throughway serving as sole passage between the furthest outskirts of rural civilization and a breathtaking unconquered wilderness that constitutes the single largest swath of unprotected forest north of the Mississippi.
