SideReel: This Week in TV - 2.15.2010 - Featured

Time for an all new This Week in TV where Kendra and Rachel tell you - of course - what's happening on TV this week!

Lots of shows are in reruns due to the XXI Olympic Winter Games, but there's still some options available to you, including some new series premieres/returns!

And of course - if you're into the Olympics (curling, anyone?) - check out our special Winter Olympics Page to stay on top of all of the scheduling, medal counts, athlete info and more!

Additionally, K & R spend some time discussing shows that started really strong, but never could recapture their early season glory (we're looking at you, Heroes).

Check out the video here:

This Week in TV - 2.15.2010

You can find these videos from week to week on the TV tab.

As always, we'd love to hear your comments and feedback below in comments! Which shows do you think have not lived up to their early season glory?

Hi guys on the topic of the shows that could face cancellation, NCIS Los Angeles, actually did not have a strong start in my opinion. White Collar on USA might have that same challenge, although I believe it has great potential to last a while, it drifts sometimes so I don't know. Although I love Cougar Town, but I believe the story lines are becoming a bit washed down, it's still very funny and I want it to last, but if it came down to making a tough decision, I fear it could be on the short end.
As for Prison Break, I believe that it had a strong Season 1 as you guys mentioned, but for some reason, the writers faced problems trying to improvise a series that went with the 'Prison Break' theme, and the finale didn't really do the show justice. Season four was when I lost interest.
Finally, I believe Gossip Girl lost it's edge after Season 1 and The Office (although it may be steady now), still hasn't been able to match the comedy derived from Season 1.

I'm new to the site and I really enjoy it. The question you asked about shows that you think might be a bust I have one. It is the show on SyFy " SGU" they made such a hype and it reminds me of when sgt1 started sort of lame then It have a huge following in the second season. I really dont know if SGU will make it . the reason why their stuck of a ship that they have no control over and they can not get home. Humm does this remind you of Stargate alantis? The story is the same .
I do hope it makes it , but who really knows.
