TV Highlights: Winter Break Edition

You may be on Winter Break, but that doesn't mean this blog is. It might be slower this week and have less posts, but it's still up and running. And for when you're lazing around your apartment in your PJ's and have nothing else to do, here are some things you can watch on the tube:

Monday, March 3, 2008
Morning Movie: AMC has Young Guns on at 11:15 a.m.
FOX has the two-hour season finale of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles at 8.
ABC has a two-hour 20/20, also at 8, all about the British Royals.
MyNetworkTV (WXSP) has a new Paradise Hotel 2 on at 9.
Flavor Flav alert: MTV has a new Flavor of Love 3 on at 9.

E! has Celebrity Rehab Centers Exposed at 11 a.m., and I don't think I could be more excited. (You think I'm joking, don't you?)
Billy Ray Cyrus takes a break from his daughter's career to host Hillbilly: The Real Story, on the History Channel at 2. Music makers, peddlers, and everything else that defines a hillbilly. And I guess Billy Ray should know?
ABC has a new Primetime: What Would You Do? on at 10, which I can't lie, those are kind of fun to watch.
CBS counters that with a new Jericho on at 10. And judging by the ratings, I guess this would be one of the last episodes of the show, period.
FOX has a reality program called American Idol, which is only an HOUR long! Downside? It's 80's music. The show is followed by the premiere of New Amsterdam, which, no promises, I might cover for this site.

Growing Pains gets their own True Hollywood Story on E! at 9 a.m.
Remember when Tom Cruise was a rising Hollywood star that was well respected? Yeah, me either. That may be because Cocktail is almost as old as I am. Nevertheless, TBS has it on at 9 a.m.
Comedy Central has Bad Santa on at 5. Always timely, that Comedy Central.
Wife Swap, Supernanny, and Men in Trees are all new on ABC.
NBC has a new Law & Order (original) on at 10.
FOX has night 2 of American Idol on at 8, followed by Moment of Truth.

AMC has the 1943 version of Sahara on at 10:30 a.m.
The Olsen twins invade your day in a New York Minute, 4 pm Oxygen
ABC has a new Lost at 9, in which Juliet receives an unwelcome visitor.
FOX has the Idol results at 8, followed by another New Amsterdam at 9, this time with a flashback to 1941 that may hold a clue to that hour's mystery.
NBC has a hour-long repeat of The Office at 8. (The one with Moses and the farm!)
NBC also has Celebrity Apprentice at 9, in which Piers and Omarosa fight AGAIN, followed by a new Lipstick Jungle at 10, in which Shane suddenly has a music career. (?!)
MyNetworkTV has Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit on at 8.

Have you ever watched Baby Looney Tunes? It's a kids show, but it is actually kind of fun. It's on at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, and I would advise watching it if you happen to flip by it.
At 11 a.m., E! has the Forbes Top 20 most expensively outrageous celebrities, including interviews with Donald Trump and Simon Cowell.
Before it was a web browser, Firefox was a Clint Eastwood movie. (12:30 p.m., AMC)
At 8, ABC Family has Bring It On. Six words why I should watch: Kristin Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Gabrielle Union.
At 8, CBS has the Price is Right Million Dollar Spectacular.
NBC has a new Amnesia on at 8.
The CW has a new Friday Night Smackdown!
ION has the 2000 version of The Hound of the Baskervilles at 7.

A&E has two hours of my favorite weekend show, Sell This House. (9 a.m. - 11 a.m.) Guys, some decorating shows are hit-or-miss with me, but there's a certain charm to this half-hour show that actually motivates me to wake up early on a weekend to see it. Please, watch it then disagree, although I doubt you will.

Starts at 8: ABC has The Road to Perdition, NBC has a Law & Order marathon, E! has Lost in Translation, Oxygen has the Kiera Knightly Price & Prejudice, TBS Bad News Bears and WGN has Mighty Joe Young.

Sunday, March 9, 2008
At 7 p.m., NBC has 100 Most Outrageous Moments, which are zany highlights from TV years gone by. It sounds dorky, but is probably pretty entertaining. Which is more than I can say for Ben Silverman's NBC, but, enough about poor programming decisions! (How's Quarterlife doing for you, Ben?)

ABC has a new Oprah's Big Give at 9, which will be CRAZY, RIGHT LADIES?
TBS has Kicking and Screaming at 8. It's Will Ferrell sports movie, so if you see one, then you've seen them all! (No hate mail, please.)
PBS plays music from the 60's at 8.
Remember in 1998 there was that Merlin TV movie with Sam Neill, Isabella Rossellini, Martin Short and other kind of big names? All 4 hours are playing on WXSP at 7 p.m.
TVLand is playing Beetlejuice at 10 p.m., for reasons I do not know, but may not complain about if I did.
