(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)MONDAY (1/21)
- Prison Break (FOX, 8pm): “T-Bag enlists Bellick to display his gladiatorial skills once again as the battle between Lechero and Sammy for control of Sona comes to a head.” If they can’t beat American Gladiators, FOX will encourage its characters fight like ‘em.
- Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann (ABC, 8pm): “Viewers cast their first vote for their favorite teams after they perform live song-and-dance routines.” They’ve finally reached the phase I actually care about.
- Wildfire (ABC Family, 9pm): Season 4 premiere. I have absolutely no idea what this show is about, but it sounds like a trashy romance novel. Oh wait - this is a family channel. Never mind.
- Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 9pm): “John and Cameron try to fit in a new school.” Is an education really the most important thing for John at this point? Shouldn’t he be honing his street smarts or something?
If you’re anything like me, you were absolutely sickened by last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. (Yes - every woman should have a nice 40th, but did Tamra really “deserve” a $40,000 Rolex for her birthday?) But Tuesday’s airing really didn’t differ from the previous episodes—nor will it keep me from watching again.
Sensing my need to know these women better, Bravo has chosen to branch out. (Now that Jeana and her husband are finally kaput, the awkwardness level has decreased a bit.) Hoping to tap into a new set of neuroses - while surviving the writers strike - the cable channel will be taking it the other coast. That’s right. We’ll soon be introduced to the The Real Housewives of New York City! In other words, expect to see more furs (less fake tans), more drivers (less convertibles) and more Broadway openings (the same amount of drunken outings).
The socialites featured in this Housewives spinoff will include a businesswoman, a former model/actress and a countess. I’m also hoping this installment will include the overworked nannies that are so lacking in the O.C. version (and the hours the mistresses spend writing ‘To Do Lists’ for the help).
Expect more head-shaking entertainment when The Real Housewives of New York City debuts on March 4.

- Duel (ABC, 8pm): The first of six-airings this week. In this game show, the contestants ‘challenge each other’s intellect and skill, but a single wrong answer disqualifies them from trying for the $1.5 million prize.’ Seriously - if a show is going to be named ‘Duel’, it should involve body blows.
- Clash of the Choirs (NBC, 8pm): This four-part series brings us Michael Bolton, Patti LaBelle, Nick Lachey and Kelly Rowland. Surprisingly, this combo is not part of some VH1 program.
- Notes from the Underbelly (ABC, 9pm): “Eric must organize a baby party without ruining friendships.” His pals are all hoping they don’t have to come.
- Journeyman (NBC, 10pm): “Dan is sent to rescue a mother and son in an RV hanging from a cliff.” Just for clarification—do his travels always predate the existence of 911?

**NBC will devote this whole week to the environment and inject something ‘green’ into all their shows. To enjoy it, we must turn on our TVs.**
**Special times for the ABC lineup tonight; Dancing With The Stars runs until 9:45 (pushing everything else 15 minutes late).**
- Prison Break (FOX, 8pm): Two-hour episode. Michael finally learns that Sara has been murdered tonight. I’m curious to see how steely his eyes can get.
- Everybody Hates Chris (CW, 8pm): ‘When Chris joins the writing staff of the school newspaper, he makes up a story about a serial killer that causes a panic in the community.’ This is what people get when they don’t pay for a real newspaper.
- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8pm): ‘Marshall learns Lily’s dirty little financial secret when he and she decide to buy an apartment.’ As Suze Orman would say: “If he didn’t realize how many pairs of shoes she had, he’s equally to blame.”
- The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8:30pm): ‘The guys ask Penny to join their ‘Halo’ team.’ The only time boys ask me to play Halo is when they need someone to kill.
