Beginning this Sunday, GeekTonic will continue this “What To Watch” series detailing the new and returning shows coming up each week.

Countdown to the Crown (10pm on TLC – Available in HD) This is another realityTV series premiere.  The series follows 52 state title holders as they live together on the Queen Mary luxury ocean liner and face a series of team and individual competitions to help them prepare for the pageant -- and prove they have what it takes to be the next Miss America.  Just really exciting stuff there…

Stargate Atlantis (9pm on SciFi – Available in HD) Stargate Atlantis returns from its Holiday Break to continue season 5.

Saturday 01/03/2009

Cops (8pm on FOX – Available in HD) Season 20 continues with more shirtless guys getting busted.  Did you know this reality show began in 1989!  Wow. Edit: This is a rerun so those of you Cops fans hoping for a new show will have to wait until February.  The good news is, Cops is pretty much the same every time so the reruns will be just like the new ones anyway.  Sorry about that.

Game Show In My Head (8pm on CBS – Available in HD) A new game show based on a similar British show arrives.  This one is a “hidden-camera” game show where contestants perform a series of silly and embarrassing tasks in public as they are instructed to by the host via a concealed earpiece. 

America’s Most Wanted (9pm on FOX – Available in HD) Season 22 returns from Holiday vacation.


That’s it for the last few days of this week.  Stay tuned for many more premieres which you’ll find on GeekTonic this coming Sunday morning and each week on Sundays.
