Sunday, September 27, 2009

  • Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (7pm on ABC) – Season 7 starts with a two-hour special premiere
  • 60 Minutes (7pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season  42
  • The Amazing Race (8pm on CBS) – Season 15 arrives with a 2-hour premiere.  I’m officially no longer interested in this reality TV show.  I used to enjoy it but its just not that entertaining to me anymore and they still don’t do it in HD which is just stupid this day and age.
  • The Simpsons (8pm on Fox – Available in HD) – Season  21  Bart lives on and its in HD
  • The Cleveland Show (8:30pm on Fox – Available in HD) – New spinoff of “The Family Guy.”  I don’t do adult cartoons, but the previews of this were actually sort of funny.  Again Fox is running this show in HD!
  • The National Parks: America’s Best Idea (9pm on PBS – Available in HD) - The two-hour premiere of Ken Burns latest documentary.  I’m a fan of Ken Burns way of telling history through photography and good narration.  If the clips I saw of this one are any indication this one won’t disappoint.
  • Family Guy (9pm on Fox ) – Season  9  Sorry, no HD for this one.
  • Dexter (9pm on Showtime – Available in HD) – Season  4 of Dexter.  My daughter really loves this show (she got hooked watching it on Netflix Watch Now) and it really sort of scares me.  But I know it’s a good one.
  • Desperate Housewives (9pm on ABC– Available in HD) – Season  6 arrives – another of my wife’s favorites
  • American Dad (9:30pm on Fox – Available in HD) – Season  5
  • Brothers & Sisters (10pm on ABC – Available in HD) – Season  4
  • Californication (10pm on Showtime – Available in HD) – Season  3
  • Cold Case (10pm on CBS – Available in HD) – Season  7
  • My Fair Wedding (10pm on WE) – Season 2
  • Titan Maximum (11:30pm on Adult Swim) – Season Premiere


Monday, September 28, 2009

  • Day After Disaster (8pm on History) – A 2-hour special
  • Lie To Me (9pm on FOX – Available in HD) –  This is Season 2 although this will be the first real, full season.  They’ve brought on three former “the Shield” writers on board so this good show just might get even better.
  • Trauma (9pm on NBC – Available in HD) – A new Emergency-Room-based drama from the producers of “Friday Night Lights.”
