TV Shows (most info from http://tvlistings.zap2it.com/):
  • Tonight – NBC has two new episodes of Merlin tonight starting @ 8pm. HBO has a new episode of True Blood @ 9pm [promo], followed by the series premiere of Hung @ 10pm [promo].
  • Monday – nothin'
  • Tuesday – ABC has a new episode of Better Off Ted @ 9:30pm [promo].
  • Wednesday – nothin'
  • Thursday – nothin'
  • Friday – FOX has a new episode of Mental on its new night and time @ 9pm.
  • Saturday – Since I don't watch Cartoon Network except for the few shows that I like and with the Friday time block being disrupted, I didn't realize that new episodes of The Secret Saturdays were falling into the rerun slot on Saturday mornings @ 8:30am. Alas, just like last Saturday, that is the case again this Saturday.
  • Next Week – I tend to be skeptical about TV listings a week in advance, but since next Sunday is part of a holiday weekend, it looks like we get one new episode of Merlin, and reruns of True Blood and Hung. That Tuesday, though, is the series premiere of Warehouse 13 on SciFi (or SyFy?), which looks like it might be a pretty good show.

Since this coming weekend is a holiday weekend, new movies come to theaters on Wednesday. You can either take the kids to see Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs, or if you've got some kid-free time, check out Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in Public Enemies.
