TV Premieres: What To Watch 10/26 – 11/01

The Fall 2008 TV season premieres have almost all shown themselves over the past few months, but there are a few mid-season additions coming – a few of them this week.

Note:  The complete guide to the Fall 2008 TV Premieres with a free, downloadable guide is here

NOTE: Times are EST
SUNDAY 10/26/2008
Bridezillas (9pm on WE) Reality Series chronicling the frantic brides before weddings.  Proof of the coming doom of society as this show is now heading into season five.
Cities of the Underworld (9pm on History – Available in HD) Season 3 - explore underneath the cities of the world to find the hidden engineering feats and dark histories buried beneath.  Season three takes us back to London and the tunnel network that has existed since Victorian times.
My Fair Wedding (10pm on WE) Reality program where a “wedding planner” transforms what could be a disaster wedding into a platinum style affair.

WEDNESDAY 10/29/2008
Stylista (9pm on CW – Available in HD) A new CW show with eleven aspiring fashionistas face weekly tough challenges under the leadership of Elle's Fashion News Director, Anne Slowey. From the creators of Project Runway and America's Next Top Model.
Law & Order (10pm on NBC – Available in HD) Law & Order returns to save NBC.  Seems ironic that they’re putting a crappy show like Knight Rider (8pm) next to their tried and true Law & Order franchise, but they are.
UFO Hunters (10pm on History – Available in HD) Amazingly enough, this show made it to season 2.  A group of “experts” in UFO Hunters is determined to find evidence of extraterrestrial life.

THURSDAY 10/30/2008
30 Rock (9:30pm on NBC – Available in HD) NBC brings back 30 Rock for its third season, a show that I used to find mildly entertaining, but I think has totally lost its way – much like NBC itself. 

In other TV News, Lipstick Jungle is being moved to Friday at 10pm right after Crusoe (yeah that combination seems pretty ridiculous to me too).  So it looks like both of these shows will die a somewhat slow death on the Friday timeslot together.
