But as Coolio quickly finds out, teenagers have their own way of doing things, and his irreverent methods of discipline sometimes cause more problems than they solve. The Coolio household is full of pitfalls that demand his attention and threaten to derail his business plans.

Saturday

Saturday is the 2-hour series premiere of Legend of the Seeker. It’s syndicated so you will have to look it up to find what time and channel it is airing for you. For me, it’s airing on WGN starting at 5/4c, but it will most likely be different for you. If you need a good place to look it up, I found it at: Zap2It’s TVListings Guide. The one-hour series is based on Terry Goodkind’s book “Wizard’s First Rule” and epic fantasy series “The Sword of Truth.”

Tonight is also the 2nd season finale of Primeval on BBC America at 9/8c.

Also on tonight:

  • *Season Finale*Primeval – BBC America @ 9/8c
  • *Series Premiere*Legend of the Seeker – Syndicated (Check Local Listings)
  • *New*Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team – CMT @ 9:30/8:30c
  • *New*My Big Redneck Wedding – CMT @ 9/8c
  • *New*The Graham Norton Show – BBC America @ 10/9c
  • *New*Trading Spaces – TLC @ 10/9c

Have a great week everyone! Enjoy all the new shows!

    Yay, 30 Rock is back!

  2. Theresa B. says:

    This says Lipstick Jungle is on both Wed and Fri as NEW? Is that right? And Life isn’t showing as being on at all this week. Could there be a typo out there?

  3. Jenny says:

    As far as I can see, on both NBC.com and thefutoncritic, this week, LJ is on both days. I’ll update the schedule if that changes. 🙂
