Week of 3/15 - Ten Things We Can't Wait For!

This week, we can't wait for:

The 2 hour Kings premiere! Some will love it and some will hate it, but I'd advise you all to give the first episode of new series Kings, Goliath, a shot. It stars the incomparable Ian McShane and is definitely different from everything else currently on TV.

Series finale of Kyle XY! It isn't so much excitement I feel that this ABC Family series will be prematurely concluding, but I couldn't not include it in a list of the week's highlights. Will the series answer all of the lingering questions?

Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill return to The CW! It has been well over a month and we have been missing our favorite Upper East Siders and Tree Hill residents. Both series finally return this week with new episodes; look for the return of Leighton Meester's real life boyfriend Sebastian Stan (also now appearing in Kings) to reappear on Gossip Girl.

Judy Greer on House! I haven't been watching House regularly this season, but I might just tune in to catch guest star Judy Greer and a premise involving...a magical cat that can predict disease a death. Not a joke. Watch preview

Scrubs returns with new episodes! I have to tell you, I can't quite understand what ABC has been doing with Scrubs. They went to all of the trouble to buy it, only to air a bunch of episodes in a clump and then show reruns for weeks. Needless to say, a new episode is finally back this week on a new night...Wednesday!

Better Off Ted debuts on ABC! Another day, another new show premiere! Is Better Off Ted going to be ABC's answer to NBC's quirky work comedy duo of The Office and 30 Rock? Judging by the previews, looks like Ted could be hilarious...or downright terrible. I'm curious to find out, and either way, it's nice to see frequent guest star Jay Harrington (Private Practice) get a shot at his own show.

Barack Obama on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno! Yeah, you read right. President Obama will be appearing as a guest on Thursday night's Tonight Show on NBC. This will be the first time ever that a current president has appeared as a guest on a late night program.

Premiere of Party Down on Starz! From the creator of Veronica Mars, this is sure to be the show that puts Starz on the map as a provider of original programming. It's a winning premise: struggling actors form a catering company to pay the bills. It also has a winning cast, including guest appearances by multiple Mars alums. Premiere is already on starz.com if you can't wait!

Episode 6 of Dollhouse! It's the one we've been waiting for! Joss Whedon swears it. So does series star Eliza Dusku. If you've made it this far and haven't given up on Dollhouse yet, it only gets better from here...!

Series finale of Battlestar Galactica! I can't believe that the time has already come. Let's hope that this one goes out more like Six Feet Under (my personal favorite-ever series finale) than The L Word.

What are you most excited for?

Dollhouse better not under-perform or Joss's head is going to be on a silver platter for all nay-sayers to eat at with rusty forks. I'm beginning to get attached to this show after a very poor pilot episode. I'm hoping after Elisha's best acting to date in the latest episode, "True Believer" we finally see her break out of her shell and take on more deliberate and diverse roles.
House on the other hand has been a bit of a quirk this season but I just think it's about time for them to stop having foremen ask himself, "Am I the next Gregory House?" because lord knows the man has done it seven dozen times. Also, the series finale is totally going to have to do with Cuddy and her baby, Joy. I can just feel it.
great list :]
