|Oh, man, I should have been finished with this before now. I got distracted by Picross, and then I stopped to watch the new Big Bang Theory. Speaking of which, if you're a fan of Dancing With the Stars, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, or Two and a Half Men, hopefully you didn't need me to tell you that they came back with new episodes tonight.|
The only other show returning this week is The Game, which joins Everybody Hates Chris and Aliens in America in The CW's Sunday night show-killer lineup.
Tuesday sees the premiere of Miss Guided on ABC, starring Judy Greer as a guidance counselor who returns to the school she grew up in.

THIS WEEK IN TV:
MONDAY-As noted, ABC and CBS have new shows coming back with new episodes. In addition, ABC has the first real episode of The Bachelor: London Calling and CBS has a new episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine. The CW has a new Pussycat Dolls, FOX has new episodes of Canterbury's Law and New Amsterdam, MyNetwork has a new episode of Paradise Hotel 2, and NBC has My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad and Deal or No Deal.
TUESDAY-ABC's showing It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown, along with a special episode of Just For Laughs (which then disappears for a few weeks), the first Dancing With the Stars results show, and the aforementioned premiere of Miss Guided (which then moves into the Thursday time slot). CBS counters with Big Brother 9 and Jericho. If you're a Jericho fan, better make the most of the last two episodes, because I doubt it's coming back next year. The CW has new episodes of Beauty and the Geek and One Tree Hill, FOX has American Idol, and NBC has The Biggest Loser.
WEDNESDAY-ABC has new episodes of Wife Swap (originally scheduled to be a rerun), Supernanny and Men in Trees; CBS has Survivor and Big Brother 9; The CW has America's Next Top Model; FOX has The Moment of Truth and the American Idol results show; MyNetwork has a new Whacked Out Videos and the special Easter's Funniest Moments; and NBC has a new episode of Law & Order.
THURSDAY-ABC has the second and third episodes of Miss Guided, along with new episodes of Lost and Eli Stone. I guess they didn't like how the pop-up reruns of Lost were doing. By the way, Miss Guided only has 7 episodes, so it's finished by April 3rd.
Thursday sees the start of CBS's March Madness Coverage, which runs all day. Some CBS affiliates (I know of Milwaukee, Phoenix, and Raleigh at least) split up their digital signal so that they can show 4 different games at the same time. If you have a TV with a digital tuner and an antenna you're in luck. If you have cable/satellite you may or may not be in luck, depending on your provider.
The CW has new episodes of Smallville and Reaper, FOX has new episodes of Are You Smart Than A 5th Grader? and Don't Forget the Lyrics, MyNetwork is showing In The Army Now starring Pauly Shore and Andy Dick (sounds lovely), and NBC has Deal or No Deal, Celebrity Apprentice, and the last pre-strike episode of Lipstick Jungle. 6 more scripts for Lipstick Jungle were ordered, but no word on when it returns.
FRIDAY-ABC has it's finger on the pulse with a two hour 20/20 titled "Prostitution in America: Working Girls Speak", CBS has NCAA Basketball again, The CW has Friday Night Smackdown, FOX airs already waiting-to-be-canceled The Return of Jezebel James, and NBC airs Amnesia and a two-hour Dateline NBC.
SATURDAY-ABC airs The Ten Commandments. Hey, passover isn't until April! Don't you have a Jesus movie you can air? I guess I never realized that The Ten Commandments is 3 hours and 40 minutes long. With commercials it's going to be 4 hours and 45 minutes. I'm gonna have a Moses beard by the time it's over.
CBS has second-round NCAA Basketball games, and FOX has new episodes of Cops and America's Most Wanted.
SUNDAY-ABC has Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Oprah's Big Give, and Here Come The Newlyweds; CBS has 60 Minutes, Big Brother 9 and an episode of Dexter that originally aired on Showtime; The CW has new episodes of Everybody Hates Chris, Alien's In America, and The Game; FOX has two new episodes of Unhitched (with the last one coming next week); and NBC has another Dateline NBC.

|I see King of the Hill and Unhitched, but I don't see the rest of the Fox Sunday night lineup in the grid. Or are you only posting ratings for shows that aired new episodes?|

|Yeah, reruns get sometimes substantially lower ratings, and I don't think there's much point to telling what the rating of a rerun was, especially with the way the strike forced so many shows into reruns.
