What's on TV this week? Just --- THE BEST WEEK EVER!

The best week of TV begins this week....I do not know how I will ever get something done or where I should start. I feel some pressure....alright, extreme pressure. And yet I'm also very, very excited about it. I think this week, I'll feel a lot like a newly grad on her first day at work --- anxious, eager, exhausted but fulfilled.

So, are you ready for TV this week? Here's what is on and what's surely going to make my schedule all crazy (with the episode synopsis from their official sites and Spoilerfix):

Season 2 Episode 13 Separation Anxiety
April 20
  • Robert and Kitty visit a fertility clinic. Three months earlier, he dropped out of the Presidential race. He proposes dinner after Kitty is finished and she accepts, but wants to invite Nora and Isaac.

Kitty is surprised when the man who defeated Robert in the primary reaches out with a possible offer for Vice President. Rebecca and Justin have their DNA tested to see if they really are related.

Simon was, according to Robin's word, the hottest guy on the set. The others warn Robin that, with time, people change and it is possible that Simon isn't as hot as he used to be. No matter what the gang thinks, Robin still has a huge crush on Simon and acts like a teenager around him. Simon is part of a band that plays at small venues such as bat-mitzvahs.

Aside from this, I'm also...
  • watching new episodes of My Name is Earl and The Big Bang Theory
  • catching up on three episodes of Greek
  • proceeding with DVD Marathon I began last week: 1) Scrubs 2nd Season, which finally arrived from Amazon (freebie! whee!), and 2) Arrested Development - which I'm introducing to my son, am sort of testing if he'd get the humor...and you know what? He digs it!
  • tuning to Bostong Legal and Lost Season 2 on cable. Just because.
  • rooting for my favorite Idols on American Idol.
I wish there was a way I could get myself a powerful satellite or something...and move to Venus. Because over there? The days are longer...something I'd need to have to finish all these shows and still be productive.

Have a great week ahead!
