This Week on TV – 10/12/08-10/18/08

Welcome to a new week of TV! Sorry this is up late. Had a crazy day Saturday and completely forgot about it. But at least it’s up ahead of when Sunday’s schedule will be posted. 😉 Jump with me to see this week’s schedule!

PLEASE someone save me. My DVR has hours and hours of TV on it and I’m having sound issues. It’s kind of scary. So now I’m going on a feverish TV watching spree. LOL So let’s see what is going to add to my list this week, shall we? *laugh*

Monday

Monday is the series premiere of My Own Worst Enemy on NBC at 10/9c. Henry Spivey (Christian Slater) is a middle-class efficiency expert living a humdrum life in the suburbs with a wife, two kids, a dog, and a minivan. Edward Albright is an operative who speaks 13 languages, runs a four-minute mile, and is trained to kill with his teeth. Henry and Edward are polar opposites who share only one thing in common — the same body. When the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, Henry and Edward are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element. The drama explores the duality of a man who is literally pitted against himself. And it raises the question: who can you trust when you can’t trust yourself?

Friday

Friday is the 2-hour series premiere of Crusoe on NBC at 8/7c. Based on the legendary novel by Daniel Defoe, this is the tale of Robinson Crusoe. A young man leaves his true love to embark on an adventure — only to end up shipwrecked on a remote tropical island for 28 years, completely detached from the life he once knew. His desire to return to his wife and his strong and unlikely friendship with Friday are the only things that keep him sane. While stranded, Crusoe encounters enemies and braves the elements. Equal parts MacGyver, Castaway and Pirates of the Caribbean, this series is an inspirational tale of survival rife with action and comedy.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Real Simple. Real Life. on TLC at 8/7c. Hosted by television personality Kit Hoover, each of the series’ 15 hour-long episodes will help busy women tackle their daily challenges, sharing strategies to help make life easier. The multimedia partnership between TLC and Real Simple, announced in March 2008, will also encompass a dedicated Web site as well as monthly editorial content in the award-winning Time Inc. magazine.

It’s also the 2-hour series premiere of Crash on Starz at 10/9c. This provocative new 13-episode drama starring an ensemble cast led by film icon Dennis Hopper. Set in Los Angeles, the series explores the complexities of social and racial tolerance and the meaning of the American dream through characters whose lives intersect and collide as they strive to achieve that dream. The drama features a disparate group of Los Angelenos, including maverick record producer Ben Cendars (Dennis Hopper); impulsive cop Kenny Battaglia (Ross McCall); his actress-turned-police officer partner Bebe Arcel (Arlene Tur); frustrated Brentwood mom Christine Emory (Clare Carey); her pre-bust real-estate developer husband Peter Emory (D.B. Sweeney); former gang member-turned-EMT Eddie Choi (Brian Tee); Ben’s street-smart driver Anthony Adams (Jocko Sims); illegal Guatemalan immigrant Cesar Uman (Luis Chavez); and cocky, hot-tempered detective Axel Finet (Nick E.
