Watch this (week of April 14)

SUNDAY Don’t let the “new” label on “Once Upon a Time” (8 p.m., ABC) fool you… it’s one of those “what’s happened up to this point” episodes.  Still, if you’re a fan who’s missed a couple of episodes, or want to become a fan of this fairytale-themed serial, than it’s the perfect time to catch up on what’s been going on in Storybrooke.  “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS) is one of the few shows I watch the night it… Read More »

Watch this (week of March 31)

SUNDAY It’s back! As “Game of Thrones” (9 p.m., HBO) kicks off its third season, Daenerys continues her quest for a ship, and Jon Snow finally meets the legendary Mance Ryder. But my favorite part of the show: Peter Dinklage’s portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. If you’re a fan of “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC), you might want to clear some space on your DVR. The singing competition airs repeats of last week’s fourth-season premiere tonight, with new episodes at 8… Read More »

Now that the holidays are over, the kids are headed back to school and many people have less down-time to watch TV, the winter season kicks off.  Some highlights from this week: SUNDAY The networks kick off the week with the return of many favorites.

Watch this (week of Dec. 2)

Like that Thanksgiving turkey, the TV schedule has been picked clean, of debuts at least. (January, however, looks to be a very busy month.) So, what to watch? Fortunately, many old favorites are still showing first-run episodes… for now. Here’s a sampling of what’s on this week.  SUNDAY Arguably the best night of TV, on CBS, there are new episodes of “The Amazing Race” (8 p.m.) and “The Good Wife” (9 p.m.), while ABC has a new “Once Upon a… Read More »

Watch this (week of Oct. 14)

This was the week “Community” was supposed to return. NBC, however, decided to (once again) put it on the shelf, announcing it won’t return on Oct. 19 as planned. I guess the bright side is “Whitney’s” return was delayed, too. Without “Community” to look forward to, what IS new? Nothing much. Premieres have tapered off, and now is the time when we start to predict which series will be axed. (Last year, “Whitney” defied my expectations; let’s see if this… Read More »

When your shows will return

Watch this (week of May 13)

Time to say a bunch of goodbyes again this week as a whole slew of shows shutter for the season.  SUNDAY  “Desperate Housewives” (9 p.m., ABC) ends its eight-season run tonight as the women of Wisteria Lane bid farewell for good. In tonight’s episode,  Bree is on trial for murder, Susan’s daughter Julie is about to give birth and Lynette and Tom are on the cusp of reconciliation… or saying goodbye forever. (My money’s on the former). MONDAY Lily went… Read More »

Watch this (week of Feb. 5)

SUNDAY: There’s something going on this weekend that a few people might want to watch. Let’s see if I can remember what it is… I know it involves a sport of some kind. Ah, yes … the Super Bowl. Maybe you’ve heard of it? The New England Patriots face off against the New York Giants at 3 p.m. Sunday on NBC. If you’re not sick of singing competitions yet, the season premiere of  “The Voice” immediately follows the big game.… Read More »
