I got delayed again. I was preparing figuring out who to draft in a fantasy football playoff league I'm in, and then checking how I did in a college bowl pick-em I'm in (19-8 straight up, not ATS). Not that it matters, as the week was ridiculously full of rerun programming. Don't believe me? Here's all the first-run episodes AND all the specials (CBS' Sunday night lineup unavailable because of football overrun).

That's right, 4 of the top 5 were football.

That should have been the last week of that, as networks are starting to air new program again this week.
This week, ABC had Shrek 2 and the first hour of Dick Clark's Rockin Eve on Monday, while FOX had Men In Black II and NBC had Saturday Night Live in the '90s: Pop Culture Nation.

Tuesday night saw the end of the Rose Bowl on ABC (Illinois is responsible for one of my 8 losses; no, I don't know what I was thinking either), followed by Just For Laughs and new episodes of According To Jim. Oh great, According to Jim is back. I think I've changed my mind: I'd rather watch reruns. Fox had the BCS Bowl Preview show, followed by the Sugar Bowl, where Hawaii apparently never even bothered to show up. The CW aired the season premiere of One Tree Hill tonight as well.

On Wednesday night, ABC has the season premieres of Wife Swap and Super Nanny, CBS has the season premiere of Power of 10 (that *other* game show with Drew Carey), and FOX airs the Fiesta Bowl. NBC premieres season 18 of Law & Order Classic.

Celebrity Apprentice premieres on NBC on Thursday night, while FOX once again has college football. This time, it's the Orange Bowl, with Kansas taking on Virginia Tech. Celebrity Apprentice is filled with the kind of C-list celebrities you'd expect.

NBC brings 1 Vs. 100 back for Friday night. If I got MyNetwork TV, I'd be watching Bubble Boy on Friday. It's my favorite Jake Gyllenhaal role . Women's Murder Club has its truncated season finale on Friday.

On Saturday, ABC is devoted to political discourse, as they are airing both the Democratic and Republican New Hampshire debates. NBC airs a 3-hour Guiding Light, CBS airs High Crimes (starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman), and The CW airs The New Guy, starring that ugly guy who I can't believe is an actor.

Sunday brings us the premiere of American Gladiators on NBC, and the premiere of Cashmere Mafia on ABC. ABC is also having the season finale of Desperate Housewives. Find out who's dead from the tornado!

EDIT: Missed some news.

Boy that ratings table is one sad week of TV.

And based on this week's notes, it doesn't appear to be getting better. Though I will check out American Gladiators.

I was disappointed in the huge decline in animation quality (they probably went all out just for the two episode premiere)
