Last month I wrote a post listing TV schedule of winter ’09 for some major networks – ABC, NBC, CW, FOX, and CBS. If you are curious when your favorite TV shows are coming back, and when the new shows start airing, click here for the complete list. I’m making my schedule to watch some old favorites: Reaper, Chuck, Amazing Race, 24, Supernatural, but I also try to squeeze in some new shows.

But I’m not forgetting my other fave shows on other channels: Monk, Psych, Burn Notice (all in USA Network), Eureka, and Chase (on Scifi Channel). Monk will return on Friday, January 9 at its usual time 9 pm EST, followed by all new Psych at 10 pm EST. Burn Notice will return on Thursday, January 22 at 10 pm EST. For Chase and Eureka, I haven’t found any info on when the new episodes will be aired. I’ll keep you posted on this. If you have other shows you would like to find out when it’s coming back, just leave a comment, and I”ll try to find out the info for you.

Update: Eureka will return to SciFi channel on Summer 2009. Yes, I know I’m dissapointed too that I have to wait 5 more months (8 months total!) for the show to see Chief Carter again, but hey at least it’s a confirmation that the show isn’t cancelled šŸ™‚ So…there will be a new face on GD, click here to watch the sneak peek preview of the 2nd half of the 3rd season of Eureka. News source: SliceofScifi.com

Speaking of Burn Notice, I still haven’t got an official answer from USA Network about the Saab winner, nor I could find any information on the USA Network website. The burnnoticeops.com website is also down. I believe the winner has been contacted but USA Network hasn’t released the list of winners. I’m not sure, if you have any information regarding this sweepstakes, please let me know so I can forward it to others who are as anxious as I am.

Other shows starting this week: Superstars of Dance, a new dancing show on NBC. I’m not really a big fan of Dancing w/ the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance, but I think this new show will be interesting because they will be showing dance styles from around the world, not the usual samba, cha-cha, etc. If you’re interested in watching it, tune in to NBC this Sunday at 9 pm EST.

Update on midseason tv shows: Monk will return on January 9, 2009 at its usual time 9 pm EST, followed by Psych at 10 pm EST. For Burn Notice, USA network hasn’t released an official date for the 10th episode of 2nd season. I’ll keep an eye on it, but there’s good news: Burn Notice lands its 3rd season! No news on when Eureka will be back on Sci-Fi channel too. I’ll update this post as soon as I find out. *Update: Eureka won’t return this winter, but on Summer, read my post here for more info.

If you have any request on when your favorite shows will be back next winter, just leave me a comment and I’ll try my best to find the answer for you šŸ™‚

That’s a long list of new episodes/new shows to watch. For more info on the new series, visit the network’s official website. So, which shows are you going to tune in?

There’s an article on MSN TV about shows that might get a closed curtain this FallĀ and other new shows that get green light for 2nd season, like Fringe, The Mentalist, Entrourage, True Blood, Burn Notice and Psych (yay!). There are also some shows that are still on question mark, including My Own Worst Enemy, but I really hope that this one will last for at least 1 full season. Today Christian Slater came to Ellen show to promote his show, and he said that he’s just filmed 7th episode.

On the article, the author also lists 10 shows that he thinks might be cancelled: Til Death, The Adventures of Old Christine, Privileged, Lipstic Jungle, Terminator: Sarah Connor, Gary Unmarried, The Unit, The Ex List, Knight Rider, and Pushing Daisies. I don’t watch any of them; I only watch Knight Rider and Terminator once or twice, but I just can’t fit those 2 shows on my schedule to watch it regularly.Ā 

Anyways, there’s also a forum there for people to discuss their thougts on which shows to go, and some people are unhappyĀ their favorite shows areĀ about to be cancelled. I feel for them because I wasĀ (and still am a little)Ā pissed at ABC for canceling The Mole.Ā 

I can’t be a judge on which shows to go, but I know which shows that I want to see next season, and some of them are: Burn Notice, Psych, and Eureka. The three shows are on their mid-season break and will return early next year. For reality shows and game shows, I’d love to see 2nd season of I Survive Japanese Game Show as long as they have fresh new ideas. Wipeout is always refreshing, and its 2nd season is on the making. For Crusoe and My Own Worst Enemy, I’d like to see the full 1 season to decide whether or not I wanna watchĀ the 2nd season. However, I doubt that Crusoe will have 2nd season, afterall, I think it’s a miniseries based on books. Of course, the writers can always write new materials, but if it’s not good, it’s better to leave it as it is.

Update: this website provides the update of shows and their status, whether they’re cancelled, still in production (at least until next season) or likely renewed. According to the lastest update, Chuck, Prison Break, and Ugly Betty have high chances to be renewed.

That’s all that I can think of at the moment, I’ll add more once I think of something else. What do you think? Which shows should stay or go? Comment away šŸ™‚

So Olympic starts tomorrow, at 8.8.08 exactly at 8:08 pm Beijing time. I really want to watch the opening ceremony, but I don’t think I’ll be able to watch it from the start because I’m gonna get home late tomorrow. šŸ˜¦ I highly doubt that it’s going to be shown again, so I’m putting my fingers crossed for nice people out there who will record and upload it on youtube. šŸ˜›

Anyways, just watched Monk season 7 episode 3 on usanetwork. It’s kinda weird to me because it aired last friday with Psych,Ā and Psych’s new episode was available online the next day (Saturday), but Monk’s wasn’t until today (the last time I checked was Monday, still wasn’t there). Tomorrow, IĀ am going toĀ watch tonight’s Burn Notice, let’s hope it’s not going to be late like Monk.

Well, not actually breaking away (I still love watching tv). But I’m thinking that if my TV is broken beyond repair, maybe it’s time to throw it out and cut my cable bill. Thinking about calling my cable company and say I want out makes me grin so wide my cheek hurts. šŸ˜† I’m thinking to just watch TV online, since I’m on broadband anyway (why waste the bandwith I pay, right?)

I’ve been watching online TV a couple of times, usually on the official network websites like abc.com and usanetwork.com. They have full episodes of the shows and the latest ones too – and thankfully my favorite shows are in both networks. But some of the tv websitesĀ just don’t even provideĀ online videos, let alone a full episode. So what a man to do if he doesn’t have a tv and cable connection? Find another alternative šŸ˜› Last night, I found one or two great websites that provide links to some shows (some new and some old), which is nice. If anyone interested, just let me know, I’ll be glad to share the links with you. šŸ™‚

Well, asĀ for now, I’m gonna watch yesterday’s Monk and Psych on usanetwork.com šŸ˜‰

Well, I kinda hate living in west coast. Because I couldn’t participate in The Mole’s quiz every week! I think they set the time for eastern time, and the quiz can only be taken at certain time. Well, I can take the quiz, but I won’t have a clue because I haven’t watched the show yet. šŸ˜”

Anyways, on this week’s The Mole, the challenges require good memory and math. On the firstĀ  challenge, the players (divided into 2 teams) have to solve simple clues to take them to places where they have to calculate things and memorize them. This challenge is simple yetĀ not easyĀ due to high brain power required. So just based on this challenge, it’s hard to point out who’s the mole. Paul got their team lost, Clay “the math genius” got math logic jumbled up, Nicole calculated wrong, and Craig lost track of the counting, Mark took his time calculating while they didn’t have much time left. But int the end, with luck, literaly, they got all their answers right.

Second challenge, also deal with good memory and trust. The players had to choose someone to memorize some stuff about their loved ones. If the other person managed to answer 3 out of 5 questions right, he/she would get to spend some time with their loved ones. This challenge, there were some activities that arose minor suspicion, but in the end, all players got to see their loved one, which is nice.

Nicole’s mom gave her suggestion to gave up, and she almost did it too. On the confession video, she said that she’d forfeit after quiz, but she didn’t do it. In the end, Clay was executed, no surprise, I haven’t suspected him at all that much. šŸ˜› So, only 4 players left: Craig, Mark, Paul, and Nicole; all equally and highly capable smart mole.

On other tv show, I missed both Monk and Psych on Friday, but thankfully USA aired the encore the next day. Both shows are as good as ever. Because both shows’ new seasons have been shown a lot of times by USA, there were no surprise on the story. On Monk, he got a new therapist and house (temporarily). Like Monk, I kinda missed Dr. Kroeger too, he’s been on the show for so long. The producer decided to make Dr. Kroegers’ death the same as what’s really happening to the actor, heart attack. On Psych, Shawn’s mother came back, so there are a few minutes of sentimental scenes. But, other than that, it’s as funny as usual. My favorite scene was when Gus dragging Shawn out of his office. That was hillarious. Oh, and on the trailer it showed that Gus decided to quit Psych on text message, but I knew that he’d be back in. Psych won’t be the same without Gus.
