Friday


Friday is the 90-minute series premiere of The Sarah Jane Adventures on SciFi at 7:30/6:30c. If features Sarah Jane Smith, a companion of the Third and Fouth incarnations of the Doctor from the original series of Doctor Who. Elisabeth Sladen reprises her role and is back in action, discovering alien plots to take over the world, or simply helping lost extraterrestrials get home. Aided by her new young friend, Maria Jackson (Yasmin Paige), and her newly (and genetically engineered) adopted son Luke Smith (Tommy Knight), Sarah Jane has no problem taking on any challenge!

It’s also the season finale of one of the game shows on primetime that I’ve enjoyed the most (certainly tons more than the (fake) Truth one. lol), Amne$ia on NBC at 8/7c. Dennis Miller has been great as a host and I hope it comes back in the summer! It would be a fun summer show!
