Scooby-Doo on DVDTonight is the premiere of the TNT miniseries The Company. Thus adding to the glut of available options one has on a Sunday night. This is the type of night that could make your TiVo keel over dead from exhaustion. Also, tonight on The CW is the premiere of a new hidden camera type show called Schooled where students in the music department of a school are told they have to pass unbelievable tests or their program will be shutdown.
