Primetime Update

Week of January 09

Missed your favourite shows? No problem. Primetime update gives you the rundown.


After having at least a month off, we finally get a new episode. This is much to my relief, since reruns are killing me.

On the last new episode, Monica and Chandler got the exciting news that a chick in Ohio was considering them as the adoptive parents of her unborn child. This week, they go to meet the woman and a mix up with the agency has them pretending to be a doctor and his reverend wife. When they eventually reveal the truth to the woman, she storms out of the room, refusing to even consider them anymore, and Chandler must turn on the charm to win back the chance to be a father. He is successful, and the show ends with the couple’s warm embrace. Next week we see “The One Where Chandler Gets Caught.”

Rachel and Phoebe talk Ross into letting them redo his wardrobe. After he puts his full trust in them, Ross wears a pink sweater on his date (the bags got mixed up and Ross took Rachel’s bag). Needless to say, the date ends before it begins.

Joey, oh wonderful Joey, convinces Phoebe to give him her friend Sara’s phone number, urging that he won’t leave her hanging like he has many of her other friends. However, she takes a French fry off of Joey’s plate, and the theme becomes “Joey doesn’t share food!” In the end, however, Joey eats her entire dessert while she’s in the bathroom.

Friends airs on Thursdays at 8:00pm Alberta Time, on Global (channel 7 in Calgary)


The new All Star Season begins the first Thursday in February. I’m looking forward to characters such as Richard Hatch, Rudy, Sue, Colleen Haskell, Colby (hot!), farmer Ted (?), Rupert, and of course Jon! When I know more I’ll let you know.

Survivor airs on Thursdays at 9:00pm Alberta time on Global (channel 7 in Calgary).


The show and the endless weddings and interviews are over; however a second season of The Bachelorette will be coming soon, starring another reject, Meredith. We all remember the 30 year old make-up artist originally from Portland, Oregon, who currently resides in Los Angeles and pulled a celebrated pity party. She had the chance to date and possibly marry a wonderful guy (Bob) but after her grandmother died she dwelled on it. She even took Bob on a date to her grandmother’s grave:get real Hun! Anyhow, she’ll bring us a whole season of fun, I’m sure.

The Season Premiere is Wednesday, January 14th, 2004, 9pm/8c. (What the hell does this mean anyway? If it’s 8 p.m. central time then it should be 7 p.m. Alberta time, but it’s most likely on at 9 p.m. our time, or even 10.)
