What are you going to watch on Sundays. Click the link to see what the TVaholic will be checking out this season and then tell me what Sunday shows look good to you.
Sunday Night Football (NBC): Cowboys at Packers. The Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo head up to the land of the cheese heads to take on the Aaron Rodgers led Green Bay Packers. Game starts about 8:15 p.m. ET.
Privileged (The CW): Repeat. Really liking this show and this is another really good episode. JoAnna Garcia continues to be very charming and funny. You should really give this show a try, if you haven’t already. It’s better than 90210 and less trashy than Gossip Girl.
Cold Case (CBS): Repeat. The murder of a yuppie couple in 1981 is reopened after new direction is found on the case, in last season’s finale episode, “Ghost of My Child.” Another episode from season four replays right before.
Criminal Minds (CBS): Repeat. Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle) guest stars as a famous comic book artist who may be able to help find a serial killer, in “True Night” from last season.
Food Network Challenge (Food Network): New. It’s an “American Pie Festival” battle, where bakers try to make the best pie. Plays again later.

Entourage (HBO): New. Vince does an appearance at a sweet 16 party. Meanwhile, Ari is kicking things up a notch with Andrew Davies. Runs 30 minutes.
- The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards (ABC): New. I love watching TV and the people who bring it to us each week, but I couldn’t care less about this, or pretty much any other, awards show. I don’t even really know, off the top of my head, who is nominated. What I do know is that many of the shows and people that should be nominated usually aren’t and the ones that are, very seldom win. And, what’s the deal with having five hosts? The show is scheduled to run three hours.
- Army Wives (Lifetime): New. Trevor is in a small accident and also is presented with the Silver Star. Pamela comes face to face with her stalker. Last week’s episode, “Safe Havens,” replays right before. Both play again later.
- Family Guy (FOX): Repeats. The Star Wars spoofing “Blue Harvest, Parts 1 & 2” episodes replay.
