While the Olympics Sweep the World, New Shows Sweep Our Televisions

Hi my friends,

Have the Olympics taken over your television like they have mine?  My eyes are glued to the television with Visine to keep them moist and caffine to keep me going, and to boot it takes me 4 hours to get ready to go out anywhere because I get caught up watching all the events.  I just can't get enough and watch the repeats over and over!  #sochi #olympics

This Sunday the Olympics are sadly over BUT good news: all our favourite shows return and new ones begin.  Of course I have assembled a list of new shows and key returning ones!

Tonight, Jimmy Fallon becomes the 6th man to host the tonight show, making a leap more difficult than a triple lutz; no better man to do it in my opinion.  You can catch him at midnight on NBC, this whole week while the Olympics are on and starting February 24th at his regular time of 11:34pm on weeknights.

Monday, February 17th:

Series premiere of Star Crossed on the CW at 8pm, Romeo and Juliet of 2014 unfolds in the Alien/Human series.  The Atrian aliens landed on plant earth when Emery (Aimee Teegarden)was 6 years old, they came in peace but a battle errupted to capture all the aliens and seclude them from the rest of the world.  Emery hides Roman (Matt Lanter), an Atrian 6 year old alien, who is eventually found and Emery was told he was killed.  In a new experiment, the teenage aliens have enrolled in public school to see if there could every be any human/alien integration; the pressure is on with the eyes of a nation watching their every move.  Emery and Roman's childhood bond is quickly rekindled but proving to the world there can be piece will be a struggle.  Catch this show premiering at 8pm on the CW.
