* Premering this week are Samantha Who? (Mondays on ABC), My Own Worst Enemy (Mondays on NBC), Eli Stone (Tuesdays on ABC), and a special two-hour premiere of Crusoe (Friday on NBC). * This week, The CW's Tuesday lineup is reruns instead of their Monday lineup. They're reairing the first 3 episodes of 90210 on the 14th, 15th, and 21st, respectively, with new episodes returning the week after. Privileged returns new next week. I think they're airing reruns so that their shows will end at the same time as the other networks. Remember, they started several weeks before ABC, CBS, and NBC did. * FOX's Monday lineup is prempted by Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. Game 5 is on Wednesday. And if necessary Game 6 is on Friday, and Game 7 is on Saturday. * The third and final Presidential Debate is on Wednesday at 9 pm Eastern. So that preempts Private Practice, Dirty Sexy Money, Criminal Minds, CSI: New York, and Lipstick Jungle. That debate will air on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and the cable channels. FOX is course showing Game 5 of the NLCS. The debate takes place from Hofstra University, and is moderated by CBS News Correspondnet (and Face The Nation host) Bob Schieffer. This is more of a discussion format, where they will discuss 8-10 issues in the 90 minute period. * If Game 6 doesn't happen, the plan is to air a special two-hour Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, which preempts Don't Forget The Lyrics. * A reminder that America's Toughest Jobs moves to Saturday. * The Saturday Night Football game is Missouri @ Texas, and the Sunday Night Football game is the Seattle Seahawks vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
I get what you're saying, but if you watch the show regularily, he acts exactly like this and says exactly this to pretty much every contestant. He's actually gotten more by-the-numbers as the show's gone on too.
