THIS WEEK IN TV Some stuff returning this week. The CBS Monday comedies are back! House is back! Glee is back (airing out of American Idol on Tuesday)! NBC has a few special running this week. On Thursday, they've got "Saturday Night Live" in the 2000s: Time And Again, a 2 hour special. Then on Friday there's made-for-TV-movie Secrets of the Mountain. IMDB quotes MovieWeb as saying it's also a backdoor pilot. It stars TV character actors Paige Turco and Barry Bostwick. On Saturday, ABC airs Shark Tale (The W at Amazon). CBS just won't give up on mixed martial mularkey. This time it's Strikeforce on Saturday night. And finally Sunday brings the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards to CBS.
Except that "Sci Fi Friday" is an established property with a solid following. It's like the geek equivalent of "Must See TV". If they aired it on any other night, I'd say they were burying it, but this is fine.
