Show Excursions for This Week

Good stuff this week, Tourists!


So who killed J.R.?  Is Victoria Principal returning to her iconic role as Pam Ewing?  How will the addictive, twisty, betrayal-filled season end?  Find out in the two-hour finale tonight.  Dallas airs at 9 p.m. on TNT.

SyFy Channel's new drama premieres tonight.  The show takes place on Earth in the year 2046.  Over thirty years after various alien races arrived on Earth, the landscape is completely altered, terraformed nearly beyond recognition.  From the creators behind Battlestar Galactica and Caprica, this is a cross-platform debut, with stories taking place both on TV and in a new interactive game.  I think this show is going to feature some great characters and I'm a big-sci-fi/fantasy fan, and also a fan of Julie Benz (Angel, Dexter), so it's why it's a pick of mine.  Defiance premieres at 9 p.m. on SyFy.


I know this series has come under a bit of controversy - law suits, accusations of planted treasures, etc. - but this is still a compelling, entertaining series  that I tune in to watch from time to time, and I'll be checking out the season premiere tonight to see who's back and who's new.  Storage Wars airs at 9 p.m. on A&E.


It's time for Rachel's (Lea Michele) big Broadway audition for the revival of Funny Girl, and we're going to be treated to a little series nostalgia:  Rachel won't be singing her treasured "Don't Rain on My Parade" or any Streisand song for that matter, but will in fact be going all the way back to her glee club roots with "Don't Stop Believing," the number that started it all in the series' pilot episode.  Glee airs at 9 p.m. on FOX.


Looks like we're finally going to find out why Amanda (Melinda Clarke) is the way she is, how she was irreparably broken long ago and by whom.  Love this series and so glad the CW has stuck with it.  I encourage you to check this show out from the beginning and see why Maggie Q deserves a long, big-ass career.  Nikita airs at 8 p.m. on the CW.
