TV Premieres: What To Watch 11/09 – 11/15

We are well beyond the Fall TV season premieres of 2008, but there are a few mid-season replacements that arrive this week.

           The Crew of Top Chef Season 5

NOTE: Times are EST

SUNDAY 11/09/2008
Summer Heights High (10:30pm on HBO)  New Mockumentary series (import from Australia) arrives on HBO
Ruby (8pm on Style) A new reality series that follows 500-pound Ruby Gettinger’s attempt to lose weight and inspire others.

TUESDAY 11/11/2008
Cha$e (10pm on SciFi) A new reality show for SciFi that pits runners against each other on life sized "game boards" in the quest for cash.  The runners  must avoid being caught by the hunters who stalk them during the games.  Sounds a bit weird, but any reality tv show on SciFi is probably going to be strange.
Extreme Trains (10pm on History) The inner workings and past lives of the amazing locomotives that haul huge loads across the nation and deliver passengers to their destinations. The series talks about these trains roles in American history as well as their role in American life today.
WEDNESDAY 11/12/2008
Estate of Panic (10pm on SciFi) Another reality TV show for SciFi - this one where the contestants get scared.
Top Chef (10pm on Bravo) Bravo's popular reality TV show returns for a 5th season.

What’s coming up in the TV world for the remainder of the year?
  • 24 “Redemption Movie” 11/23 on Fox

  • Momma’s Boys Reality Series 12/16
I'm working on the Winter 2009 TV Season - lots of highly anticipated TV shows coming up including Lost and 24!
