This Week on TV – 11/25/07-12/1/07

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! I hope all of the Americans had a great Thanksgiving! I’m at my mom’s house writing this, on my hubby’s laptop, so it’s a bit hard to type. Hopefully it won’t take me too long to get this going. But let’s see, shall we? Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!


Sunday is the season premiere of The Simpsons on FOX at 8/7c. *laugh* I have no idea why last week was the finale and this week is the premiere. I don’t write the words, I just copy the schedule. πŸ˜‰ Just enjoy the new episode!

Tonight also is a 2-hour new episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition on ABC starting an hour early, at 7/6c. Tonight is the 100th family that they have helped, so watch as they build quite a large house for a new family of ten. Four children were orphaned when their father died in 2001 and their mother was murdered by her ex-boyfriend and they are now being raised by their mother’s sister and her family.

Finally, tonight is the “season finale” of Two and a Half Men on CBS at 9/8c. It is the last ep produced before the writers strike, so it very well could turn into a season finale.

Tuesday is the 2-hour season finale of Dancing with the Stars on ABC at 9/8c. I think Marie should definitely have gone home before Jennie, who had come such a long way, but as long as Helio or Mel B wins, I’ll be ok.

    thanks for listing the premieres in the text and in the listings πŸ™‚

    mind explaining what My Night at the Grammys is? I’ve never heard of it. Here’s what my TV listings say:
    Viewer votes determine the top 25 moments from Grammy Awards broadcasts; artists share stories of what performing on the Grammy broadcasts means.

    Curious what you think, though.
