Stupid SyFy, Getting My Hopes Up

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 26, 2011 |

8:00pm: "American Idol" on Fox. Two hour episode.

"Dog the Bounty Hunter" on A&E

"Silencing the Song: An Afghan Fallen Star" on HBO2

"Howe and Howe Tech" on Discovery

"Live to Dance" on CBS

"Minute to Win It" on NBC

"Mystery Diagnosis" on OWN. Someone gave me shit for listing the OWN shows the other day. I distinctly remember asking if I could abandon listing these shows and receiving no reply either way. So, if any of you out there are watching the shows on OWN (some of which are former Discovery Health shows) please tell me, otherwise I will henceforth banish the Oprah Network from my column.

"Nova" on PBS

8:30pm: "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" on Food Network

9:00pm: "Chase" on NBC

"Criminal Minds" on CBS

"Dog the Bounty Hunter" on A&E

"Friday Night Lights" on DirecTV

"Ghost Hunters International" on SyFy. It's been inevitable that this show would get around to the "Amsterdamned" pun sooner or later. It finally happened.

"Inside the NFL" on Showtime

"Man vs. Food" on Travel

"My Strange Addiction" on TLC

"Nova: Making Stuff Smaller" on PBS

"Operation Repo" on TruTV

9:30pm: "Dog the Bounty Hunter" on A&e

"Sons of Guns" on Discovery

10:00pm: "Are We There Yet?" on TBS

"Blue Bloods" on CBS

"Celebrity Rehab with Dr.Drew" on VH1. Reunion episode.

"Clean House" on Style. Tenth season premiere.

"Desert Car Kings" on Discovery. Series premiere.

"Face Off" on SyFy. Series premiere. Apparently, this is a competition between special effects make up artists, rather than a series based on the 1997 John Woo movie starring John Travolta and Pajiba favorite Nicholas Cage. I know. I'm just as disappointed as you are.

"I Used to be Fat" on MTV

"Miracle Detectives" on OWN

"Off the Map" on ABC

"Restaurant Impossible" on Food Network

"Toddlers and Tiaras" on TLC

"The Traveler's Guide to Life" on Travel. Series premiere.
