Yay, the "Housewives" are back. But for one episode. Photo by

Just saw a promo for Sunday's episode: We find out if Tom and the kids make it. I actually care and I'm shocked myself. Just when I thought I had given up, I find myself pining for this show. Dumb old writer's strike.

Survivor: Let's hope some people get it right this time

Oh James, now you're on the cast again, please WIN this time. Photo by

Entertainment Weekly unveiled the new cast for the upcoming season of "Survivor" to say I am pumped is an understatement.

Looking at the "old-school" Survivors there were a few surprises. Cirie is back! And so's Amie and Parvarti but Jonathan? Really??? I'm glad to see Yau and Ozzie return as well as James but did we REALLY need Amanda? And if I were James, I'd make sure SHE was the first one to go, the way she engineered my kick off, I'd be behind hers and say "Payback is a you-know-what ain't it?."

My hope is that the newbies get kicked off quickly so we can get back to the "All Star" edition again. And of course, they really, really need to watch Johnny Fairplay because he's diiiirrrty.

Friday night doldrums

Yeah, I know it's early in the day but looking ahead,there ain't a lot going on during prime-time these days. And it's looking like starting next week, some shows will be rolling out their SEASON (not a misprint) finales. Yeah, in January.

This is going to really, really hurt the networks because of all that lost ad revenue and because some people may NOT come back when the shows finally return. I've decided to drop "Heroes" for now because I was soo disappointed with Maya's black eyes of death and how it meant NOTHING to the main story and how NBC cancelled "Journeyman" just when it was picking up steam.

Of course we now have gems such as "Celebrity Apprentice" and "American Gladiators" YUCK. Fox is rolling out a show called "Moment of Truth" where people try to outwit a lie detector.

I'm telling you people, televised executions will be next if we're all not careful.

In a way, I'm kinda glad for the strike because I'm going to be working a part-time gig and I need the time to focus on that so these recaps may go back to once a week for a while for all four of you who actually read this thing.

Tonight, I'll be watching "1 vs. 100" and "Women's Murder Club" and possibly "Dateline" or "20/20" which says whoopie for TV viewing. I'm hoping NBC will reshow "Law & Order" because I missed it the other night. And Sunday will bring the Amazing Race gang again so YAY on that!
