couch potato

I spent most of my day in the dark ages (aka without internet), so that's why this is dropping late. Here is the link for your Weekly Ads.

DVDs (released on Tuesday):  Freakazoid - Season 2 Box Art  Tiny Toon Adventures - Season One: Volume Two Box Art

  • Freakazoid!: Season 2 
  • Tiny Toon Adventures: Season 1, Vol. 2      
  • My Own Worst Enemy: The Complete Series

Music (released on Tuesday):

  • Lacuna Coil – "Shallow Life"

TV Shows (most info from http://tvguide.com/listings):

Beware of general craziness this week. Just because a show is on a different night does not mean it isn't on it's regular night too (e.g. Bones, The Unusuals). Just because a show has a rerun in its normal time slot does not mean that a new episode doesn't follow (e.g. Criminal Minds). And just because a network may have three other shows in reruns, a fourth show may still be a new episode (e.g., Rules of Engagement).

  • Monday – There are new episodes of Bones @ 8pm (special night) on FOX, Chuck @ 8pm (promo) on NBC, Heroes @ 9pm (promo) on NBC, Rules of Engagement @ 9:30pm on CBS, and Castle @ 10pm on ABC.

  • Tuesday – There are new episodes of Reaper @ 8pm on the CW, Fringe @ 9pm (promo) on FOX, and The Unusuals @ 10pm (special night) on ABC. Don't forget to pad your DVR recording for Fringe in case American Idol goes over like it has been.

  • Wednesday – ABC has new episodes of [scrubs] @ 8pm, Better Off Ted @ 8:30pm, LOST: The Story of the Oceanic 6 @ 9pm, and The Unusuals @ 10pm. FOX has a new episode of Lie To Me @ 8pm, and CBS has a (season 3) rerun of Criminal Minds @ 9pm followed by a new episode @ 10pm. (I wonder if there is a method to CBS' madness?)
  • Thursday – There is a new episode of Bones @ 8pm on FOX and CBS has new episodes of Survivor: Tocantins @ 8pm and Harper's Island @ 10pm. NBC has new episodes of My Name Is Earl @ 8pm, Parks & Recreation @ 8:30pm, and The Office @ 9pm. Meanwhile, the CW has new episodes of Smallville @ 8pm (promo) and Supernatural @ 9pm (promo).
