Week in Preview: May 23, 2009 – May 29, 2009

If you're sad Supernatural is over, or simply miss gruff old Bobby, why not follow him over to Harper's Island (CBS, 9 PM)? This awesome 13 episode horror mini-series is almost halfway done, but you can catch the first five episodes at CBS.com before watching Episode 6 tonight. Any show that kills off Harry Hamlin in the first episode is okay by us.

In the newest episode of Primeval (BBC America, 9 PM), the team fights a chameleon-like creature, and Dr. Jekyll from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen plays a cop. I really don't know how I could make this sound more awesome than it already is.

Sunday, May 24
Oh, snap! Henry's gonna annul his marriage to Anne of Cleves? Shit just got real! That's how they roll on The Tudors, son! (Showtime, 9 PM)

I haven't watched Breaking Bad (AMC, 10 PM), but apparently it's awesome? Bryan Cranston is pretty great, and so is crystal meth, so I believe it.

I have yet to understand how watching Gabriel Byrne psychoanalyze someone is must-see TV, but there are two new, back-to-back episodes of In Treatment (HBO, 9 PM) on tonight. I guess it's cheaper than seeing your own therapist?

Apparently, getting 20% more bachelors for The Bachelorette (ABC, 8 PM) means they have to send them home a bunch at a time. Of the 20 who are left, four go home tonight, after a pool party and a basketball game. Ready your slo-mo buttons, ladies!

On a very special Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 9 PM), the sextuplets all celebrate their fifth birthdays (that sounds like a load of fun) and Jon and Kate "address what the future holds for their family." This oughta be good.

Does anyone really want to see Speidi plan their wedding on The Hills (MTV, 10 PM)? I didn't think so.

It's the penultimate NBC episode of Medium (NBC 10 PM), now that it's moving to CBS to form a psychic ladies detective agency with Ghost Whisperer. All I can say is, they better team up.

Tuesday, May 26
Reaper (CW, 8 PM)? This show is still on?

We watched the commercial for Mental (Fox, 9 PM), which premieres tonight, and we absolutely cannot tell you one thing about the show, except it takes place at a hospital, and it's very emotional. There's a lot of that going around.

If someone had told me five years ago that I would love Denis Leary as much as I do today, I would have called them a liar. Rescue Me (FX, 10 PM) totally makes up for Two if by Sea.

Wednesday, May 27
So You Think You Can Dance? (Fox, 8 PM) Well, you have two hours to prove it. But that's it.

Takeshi's Castle knock-off or not, Wipeout (ABC, 8 PM) makes us cheer every time an idiot takes a giant, padded beam to the groin.

Sad though I am that The Unusuals (ABC, 10 PM) has been canceled, I will savor every last episode, including tonight's, which features an 87-year-old man on a crime spree.

Thursday, May 28
Two more hours of So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 8 PM)? Man, either I'm an idiot for not watching this show or the luckiest bastard on Earth.

Can I just say that some of the contestants on The Fashion Show (Bravo, 10 PM) are crazy? And that one is named Merlin? And that he's crazy?

Friday, May 29
Apparently, Don't Forget the Lyrics (Fox, 8 PM) is still on the air, and Howard Stern's producer Gary Dell'Abate will be playing for charity tonight. Also appearing: singer Mark McGrath. Just doing our job, no need to thank us.
