Welcome to a new week of TV! Not a lot on this week but a few fun premieres in place, so check it out! Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!


Sunday is the series premiere of Your Place or Mine on TLC at 8/7c.

It’s also the season premieres of Army Wives on Lifetime at 10/9c and Design Star on HGTV at 9/8c.
