For the week of March 2-March 8: Reaper, Breaking Bad return with season premieres, Burn Notice ends its second cycle. Online, we're replaying the underrated classic Square Pegs starring a young Sarah Jessica Parker and Jami Gertz.
What to watch on television:
Monday, 8:30 p.m. CBS
Ever wonder what creature spawned Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) on the CBS comedy? Wonder no more as we meet Momma Stinson for the first time when the gang decides to see where Barney runs off to after bailing on drinks. Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) plays the Stinson matriarch.
Reaper is finally back! The second-season premiere comes with more devilish tasks for Sam and Sock, who have just been fired from their jobs and evicted from their apartments. Rough start!
American Idol--The top 12 are decided!Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 8:00 p.m. Fox
Some will move on to fame and fortune, while others will fade away to obscurity... Tuesday night the final 12 from the Top 36 perform, and Wednesday America picks three to advance. Thursday, the judges bring back some of their favorites and pick the final three. But with four judges and only three open slots, who will have the final say? And will anyone tear Simon's throat out? (I'm looking at you, Kara...)
What?!? You aren't watching Burn Notice? Spies! Sun! Babes! Babes who are spies! In the second-season finale, our man Michael and his cool sunglasses find out some unexpected details about Victor. But we'll be watching to see what Michael does about Carla (Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer).
You've already heard me blabber on about one of my favorite shows, now see for yourself after you've caught up with the season one DVD. In the season-two premiere, Walter White and Jesse continue to deal with Tuco, and let's just say selling meth is a lot harder than teaching chemistry.
