This Week on TV – 4/27/08-5/3/08

Welcome to a new week of TV! I feel like we are finally back in the swing of things for new tv. Finally! With the news that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will be back with Brian Austin Green as a series regular, I’m happier with TV than I’ve been in awhile. How about you? What was the highlight of your week? Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Sunday


Sunday is the series premiere of Celebracadabra on VH1 at 9/8c. This celeb-reality challenge unlike any other. 7 stars team up with 7 professional magicians in a race to become the ultimate celebrity magician. Watch as Celebrity Fit Club host Ant, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, comedian Hal Sparks, singer Carnie Wilson, 80s icon C. Thomas Howell, Kid N’ Play’s Chris “Kid” Reid, and actress Lisa Ann Walter duke it out while learning tricks that can take the masters years to master. Street Magic, Children’s Magic, Comedy Magic, Cabaret Magic, Strolling Magic, Phobia Magic — our celebs do it (or at least attempt to do it) all. Their work will be judged by a panel of 3 superstar magicians. Each week, one of the celebrities will be eliminated, until the final two battle it out in Las Vegas for our Grand Illusion finale. Sounds fun! I never watch VH1, but with this cast of celebrities, I will have to watch! lol Ilove Ant & Hal Sparks! lol

It’s also the season finales of 3 shows. First up is a 90-minute finale of Celebrity Fit Club on VH1 at 7:30/6:30c (hosted by the aforementioned Ant!), then Big Brother on CBS at 8/7c and finally Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union on Showtime at 10/9c.
