Premieres and Returning Shows For this Week:
NOTE: All Times are Listed for EST
Road to the Superbowl (12 Noon Sunday on NBC - Available in HD) - For those wanting to listen to endless football hyperbole, you can start at 12 Noon on NBC.
Superbowl Pregame (1PM Sunday on NBC- Available in HD) - Yep, 5 more hours of Superbowl Pregame. Gotta love it.
Superbowl Pittsburg vs Arizona (6pm Sunday on NBC- Available in HD) - The game everyone seems to watch either for the game, the gathering or the commercials. (A one-hour special episode of the Office follows the game)
Chuck (8pm Monday on NBC- Available in HD) - Chuck is a great show if you don't take it too seriously. Chuck returns from its Holiday hiatus for a special 3-D episode. I'm not too into the whole 3D thing, but consider Chuck a very watchable show.
Heroes (9pm Monday on NBC- Available in HD) - Heroes is back! Whether you think it's too complicated, too many characters or something else. It's still one of the best shows on TV right now in my opinion.
Medium (10pm Monday on NBC- Available in HD) - Season 4/Part 2 premiere. Brenda and the team get involved in a seemingly simple case when the Medical Examiner believes that a suicide is actually homicide.
Life (9pm on NBC - Available in HD) I haven't seen this one, but I've heard it called one of the best shows you're probably not watching. Returns from the holiday break
Dog the Bounty Hunter (10pm on A&E) I'll admit, I haven't watching this one. Someone tell me if I'm making a mistake :)
The Chaser’s War on Everything (9pm on G4) A sketch comedy show that lives on the edge. This is an import from Australia and they bill it as “Australia’s Most Controversial Show.” From what I’ve read it sounds like “Jackass” with a bit of a political edge. Not something that appeals to me, but for those that actually watch G4, it might be worth a look.
Jockeys - (9pm on Animal Planet) A new reality TV show by Animal Planet
That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for many more premieres including Survivor, Dollhouse, Reaper, Kings and more which you’ll find on GeekTonic this coming Sunday morning and each week on Sundays.
