Time for this week’s complete listing of premieres, finales and specials for the week.


Here’s a little movie trailer for the Burn Notice “prequel” airing this week:



NOTE: All Times are Listed for EST – TV schedules subject to change

Monday, April 18

Game of Thrones (9pm on HBO) This premiered Sunday, but is re-aired all week on HBO.  I don’t currently get HBO, but it looks pretty interesting.

William & Kate (9pm on Lifetime) Not sure what to call this so I’ll call it a movie.  It’s about Prince William (Ben Cross) meets Kate Middleton (Camilla Luddington) at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and they begin a royal romance.

Urban Legends (10pm on SyFy) Season premiere

Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe (12:05am on USA) This premiered on Sunday, but is aired again Monday, Friday and Saturday.  This is a made-for-TV movie spinoff of Burn Notice that focuses on Sam (Bruce Campbell) in a little prequel that goes back to a mission Sam was on in 2005.


Tuesday, April 19

16 and Pregnant (10pm on MTV) Season 3 premier

Explorer (10pm on National Geographic) Season premiere

Parenthood (10pm on NBC) Season 2 finale.  I now have all of the episodes of this family drama and plan to see if it’s worth watching like I’ve been hearing.  If so I have two seasons to get through.  If not… lots of extra space on the DVR/HTPC.

Dresscue Me (10:30pm on Planet Green) New reality/fashion series
