Tracy Morgan may not have been on Saturday Night Live when the famous “Land Shark” sketch first started, but that doesn’t mean the comedian isn’t scared of the mythical creature.
Watch what happened during Morgan’s recent visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Do you really see a Jaws remake in his future?

Tonight’s Finales: The Big Bang Theory, Bones, CSI: Miami, Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, One Tree Hill, Paradise Hotel 2, Rules of Engagement, Two and a Half Men
- Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm): “Blair comes to Serena’s defense and faces off with Georgina.” Well, I don’t think this is a fair fight at all. Georgina’s got mad Buffy skills!
- Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm): Will it come down to the Olympic gold medalist, NFL’s Man of the Year or the Chilean actor? Never underestimate a man who telenovela fans supporting him.
- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30pm): “Ted has an accident, and his close call with death finds him reevaluating his life and his relationship with Stella.” Yeah, I have no idea how he’s going to share her with Zach Braff either.
- The Bachelorette (ABC, 9pm): Season premiere. “DeAnna Pappas, the finalist who was spurned in 2007 by Brad Womack, is now dispensing the roses herself.” Why would anyone want to win if losing meant headlining your own show?

A new season calls for a new schedule.
If you’re without anything to do this summer, this updated programming schedule may help keep you occupied. Over the next few months, networks will be introducing a crop of reality shows (Celebrity Circus, Greatest American Dog), some experimental dramas (Swingtown, Fear Itself) and the usual horde of repeats.
This list is acompilation of the calendars
for the five major networks.

Although FOX has ruled Tuesday for quite some time, the network’s lineup has seen its ups and downs. This week, both American Idol and Hell’s Kitchen rebounded from recent ratings dips.
- American Idol (24 million, 8.6/24 in 18-49) grew by 2.8 million.
- NCIS (14.7 million, 3.0/9) improved by 900,000.
- According to Jim (1.4/4) settled in with 4.4 million.
- Most Outrageous Moments (4 million, 1.2/3) had a 200,000 decrease.
- Beauty and the Geek (1.5 million, 0.7/2) was down a notch.
Yesterday, we named those shows recently cut by the major networks. Now we know which CBS programs will be added to that dreaded list.
The freshman dramas receiving the ax include Moonlight and Shark. Although fans of the vampire series did their best to campaign for the cult fave, their passion simply didn’t equate to ratings. (I’m sure the network feared they’d end up with another failed Jericho in their hands.)
Meanwhile, those programs being spared include: How I Met Your Mother, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Rules of Engagement and The Unit. It seems Britney Spears might be good for something after all…

Tonight’s finales: The Hills, Medium, Samantha Who?, The Bachelor
- American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm): Season Two premiere includes new gladiators (‘Rocket’ and ‘Jet’). Seriously, how intimidating could a smiling Gladiator be?
- Bones (FOX, 8pm): “When the body of an aspiring singer (Ace Young of American Idol) is discovered, Booth and Brennan probe a club’s open-mike night.” Uhh—which one was Ace again?
- Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm): “An embarrassed Serena resurrects some troubling old habits as she continues to hide the truth from Dan.” If he only knew she’d been sharing her jeans with three other girls.
- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30pm): “Britney Spears returns as Abby, who is now dating Barney.” First Robin Sparkles, now Britney. I’m not sure if that’s a step up or down for Barney.
Although FOX easily handled another Tuesday night, a special two-hour Dancing with the Stars block made a nice dent in the competition.
- American Idol (21.2 million, 8.2/23 in 18-49) took a 3 million hit.
- NCIS (13.8 million, 2.8/8) underperformed by 600,000.
- The first hour of Dancing with the Stars (10.5 million, 2.4/7) did nearly 6 million better than According to Jim.
- Most Outrageous Moments (4.2 million, 1.3/4) was up a smidge.
- Beauty and the Geek (1.6 million, 0.7/2) did the same.
The normally successful FOX saw a particularly nice turnout for Hell’s Kitchen last night. The reality show matched a season high with its demos yesterday.
- Approximately 24.2 million watched Neil Diamond night on American Idol (8.7/24 in 18-49).
- NCIS (14.6 million, 3.0/8) rounded up another 500,000.
- According to Jim (1.3/3) and Most Outrageous Moments (1.2/3) both averaged 4.1 million.
- Beauty and the Geek (1.6 million, 0.8/2) remained steady with its last performance.

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)
- Deal or No Deal (NBC, 8pm): “Darth Vader subs for The Banker in a Star Wars-themed episode that also features Carrie Fisher, R2-D2 and Chewbacca, who cheer on contesants in a winner-take-all match.” As if I needed a reason to avoid this program altogether.
- House (FOX, 9pm): New episode. “House suspects that an ER patient with a sunny disposition has a bigger problem than was initially diagnosed. The reason: He thinks the patient is too nice.” I have to admit it—cheery people are a freak of nature.
- Medium (NBC, 10pm): “Joe surprises Allison by buying her a used car, but Allison’s subsequent visions warn of the vehicle’s unsavory past.” Is it a 1958 Plymouth Fury that responds to the name ‘Christine’?
- CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm): “A clue in a case involving the discovery of a body point the CSIs to a robbery that’s being planned on a target who holds a disturbing secret.” Murders have never been linked to anti-climatic or lame secrets.
