What to watch this week on-air and online

  • 10comments

For the week of February 17-February 21: The holiday-shortened week means less days to catch up on great television! On the small screen, a rapper returns to TV for more "high"-jinks, one of the best dramas on cable heats up, and sci-fi's best show gets closer to its end. On the smaller screen, TV.com has interviews with American Idol's Top 36!

What to watch on television:

Dogg After Dark--Series premiere

Tuesday, 9:00 p.m. MTV
If Dogg After Dark--a variety show from rapper/actor/toker Snoop Dogg--is half as good as his sketch show Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, it will be three times as good as anything else that's on MTV.

Damages--"New York Sucks"

Wednesday, 10:00 p.m. FX
Basic cable's best show? I wouldn't argue with that. The cat-and-mouse game between Ellen and Patty escalates to a tiger-and-capybara deathmatch as the two want to approach the UNR case differently. Meanwhile, Ellen offers up more to the Feds and--as always--nothing is as it seems.

Life--"I Heart Mom"

Wednesday, 9 p.m. NBC
Congratulations to Sarah Shahi for her recently announced pregnancy, but we'll still long for the days when we thought we had a chance with her. And what better way to do that than watch a brand new episode of Life?

Bones--"The Princess and the Pear"

Thursday, 8:00 p.m. Fox
Booth and Brennan investigate a murder at a sci-fi convention, so you know it's going to be good. Here's hoping we get to see them in costumes again!

Battlestar Galactica--"Deadlock"

Friday, 10 p.m. Sci-Fi Channel
Have you been watching the awesomeness that is the fourth (and final) season of Battlestar Galactica? Ellen is in the spotlight as she must make a critical decision regarding the Final Five Cylons and the 13th Tribe.

What to watch on TV.com:

Castle--Sneak peeks

This new series is a James-Patterson-style murder mystery that pairs a real crime scene detective with a charming guy who happens to write about crime scenes. Together, they work in perfect harmony. Well, not really.

The Three Stooges--Minisodes

Yuck yuck yuck, why I oughta – go back in time to the good ole days of slapstick comedies and watch some Three Stooges minisodes! Our friends at the Minisode Network created short episodes (five minutes each) of Three Stooges so you can have a chuckle then get back to work!


Awwwww yeah! All you "Jaters" out there are in for a treat as Kate, looking a little distraught when she tells Jack she’s going back to the island with him, decides to play some tonsil hockey. Too bad, Sawyer!


The last season of this long-running hospital drama is jam packed with guest stars and comeback characters. This week the notorious Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle) returns to get his job back, but will Banfield accept him?
