This Week on TV – 5/24/08-5/30/08

Welcome to a new week of TV! This should be a much calmer week than the last few, as most of the finales are over so take some time to just relax and enjoy a bit of a downtime! Let’s see what few new episodes there are, shall we? Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

Finally, tonight is the 1st of the 2-part miniseries on A&E, The Andromeda Strain. It has a HUGE cast with many notable names!

A U.S. military satellite crashes in a small town and unleashes a deadly plague killing all but two survivors.
