We've got a bunch of shows coming back this week. Check the daily information below for details.
THIS WEEK'S SCHEDULE
MONDAY-My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad ends this week, and Samantha Who? comes back (airing between Dancing With the Stars and The Bachelor). CBS has the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. Because of that, Two and a Half Men, New Adventures of Old Christine, and CSI: Miami are prempted, and Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your MotherPussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious has been moved from Monday to Wednesday, so The CW is all reruns.
TUESDAY-Just For Laughs returns this week and has the season finale. Boston Legal and NCIS return from hiatus. On CBS, we have the season premiere of Secret Talents of the Stars: Watch Clint Black perform stand up, Sasha Cohen (the ice skater, not Sacha Baron Cohen, the Borat guy) as a contortionist, singer Mya as a tap dancer, and George Takei as a country singer.
WEDNESDAY-Wife Swap is a rerun on ABC, and Men In Trees is prempted by a special Primetime entitled "The Last Lecture: A Love Story for Your Life". I have no idea what that means. American Idol has their special "Idol Gives Back" episode, that starts at 7:30 Eastern.
THURSDAY-ABC airs the last two pre-hiatus episodes of Desperate Housewives, in anticipation of the new episode on Sunday. Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? is prempted by the American Idol that normally airs on Wednesdays. NBC is all new: in other words, 30 Rock, The Office, Scrubs, and ER are back.
FRIDAY-NBC has the season finale of Amensia, and Dateline NBC is preempted by the Miss USA 2008 Pageant.
SUNDAY-ABC's all moved around from last week. Here Come the Newlyweds ended last week. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition goes off the air for 3 weeks. They're replaced by the return of Desperate Housewives, and for this week only, a special Eli Stone (ahead of its season finale next week Thursday). On FOX, we've got new episodes of The Simpsons and King of the Hill.
The thing that gets me is that it was obvious they left out a TON of stuff, either to secure an R rating, or because they didn't have time. Of course, this just guarentees a dvd purchase from me in the future.
