TV Higlights for Feb. 18-24

Here are some TV highlights for this upcoming week, and/or stuff that I thought was interesting:

: At the end of Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, the new cast of Dancing with the Stars will be unveiled. FOX has a new Prison Break and Terminator. ABC Family has a new Kyle XY and Wildfire. NBC has the new show My Dad is Better Than Your Dad, or, Why American Should Value It's Television Writers. AMC has Part I of The Godfather. And PBS has a new Antiques Roadshow. (San Antonio, Texas!)

Tuesday: ABC has a new Boston Legal at 10. CBS is all new with NCIS, Big Brother and Jericho. AMC is playing Godfather: Part II. The cable news outlets will have coverage of the Wisconsin Primary all night. And then there's this funny-looking show called American Idol on FOX. I don't think it'll last past it's first season.

Wednesday: Supernanny is new on ABC! Followed by Cashmere Mafia. Note the lack of exclamation point there. More Idol on FOX, this time with the Top 12 Girls singing. (Go Syesha!) The CW is all new with America's Next Top Model and Pussycat Dolls Presents: Girlilicious. Now that's fierce! And AMC has Godfather: Part III.

Thursday: Lost is on and also nothing else... that I care about. Except maybe Eli Stone, which is good. Also on are Survivor: Fans vs. Favorites, the Idol results show on FOX, a new Celebrity Apprentice and Lipstick Jungle on NBC and no Godfather installment on AMC. Meanwhile, FX has the Tom Welling version of The Fog, if you want a good thrill/laugh.

Friday: A new 1 vs. 100, which, no lie, is actually a fun show. And it requires thinking, unlike that suitcase game that bugs me to no end. Or you could watch Air Bud: Golden Retriever on WGN. I dare you to find something better on TV that night.

Saturday: ABC plays Forrest Gump. NBC is replaying Knight Rider, which is good, because I missed it on Sunday night! A&E has Matchstick Men, AMC has The Matrix, AGAIN, while Lifetime will have Miss Congeniality.

Sunday: A new Big Brother on CBS, followed later by a new (to us) Dexter. Masterpiece on PBS will conclude Pride and Prejudice, and THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is it for original programming on Sunday night. Oh, what? What's that? They're all in repeats because of ABC? What, are they doing an According to Jim marathon? Nope? The Oscars? Well, alright then! The Oscars will be on all night until Memorial Day.
