The season’s newest, laugh-out-loud series The Big Bang Theory and returning favourite Two and a Half Men have been added to the A-Channel Monday night line-up as follows:

Monday, October 1

8:00 p.m. ET/PT – The Big Bang Theory (Encore of Series Pilot)
8:30 p.m. ET/PT – The Big Bang Theory (Second Episode)

9:00 p.m. ET/PT – Two and Half Men (Second Episode)
9:30 p.m. ET/PT – Two and Half Men (Encore Premiere Episode)

Monday, October 8 (and until further notice)

8:30 p.m. ET/PT – The Big Bang Theory
9:00 p.m. ET/PT – Two and Half Men

The Big Bang Theory is a comedy about brilliant physicists, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons), who are the kind of “beautiful minds” that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women.

All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny (Kaley Cuoco) moves in next door. Sheldon, Leonard’s roommate, is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow Cal Tech scientists Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar). However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities … including love.

Emmy Award-nominated Two and a Half Men is a comedy about men, women, sex, dating, divorce, mothers, single parenthood, sibling relations, surrogate families, money and, most importantly, love. More specifically, it’s about the lives of two brothers, one brother’s son and the many women who surround them.

Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Mercedes in the garage and an easy way with women. His casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound brother, Alan (Jon Cryer), and Alan’s son, Jake (Angus T. Jones), come to stay with him. Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan’s narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor); Alan’s deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith (Marin Hinkle) and Charlie’s domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta (Conchata Ferrell).

Despite the complexities of their lives and their own strained relationship, Charlie and Alan have one thing in common–they both love Jake and want what’s best for him. As a result, they manage to create a little family unit that promises to make each of them a better man.

At Zhan Hu, Dave is trying to organize the tribe but the others don’t seem that motivated all. There seems to be some lacking in confidence in his leadership of the tribe. I guess we’ll see how long his reign lasts.

At Fei Long, the tribe is working hard. Well, almost everyone. Jean Robert is snoring and tired and there is a growing resentment in the game towards him. Hiking Guide Amanda and Todd form an Alliance. They pull Aaron in to join them. They head back to camp and Aaron tells Jean Robert that he needs to step it up but he’s making excuses. He admits later that he’s deliberately not doing much now to make himself look better later when he is contributing majorly.

At Zhan Hu, Dave is getting a BBQ pit built. Student Jamie isn’t too thrilled about it and just wants to get a fire going so she can get some food in her stomach. Dave drops a giant stone on the ground to build the BBQ pit and hoses Jamie with mud as it lands. Ashley agrees that it’s not good that they haven’t eaten and that they’ve had flint since last night and they still haven’t started a fire. Ashley and Dave face off a little about the fire and food.

It’s challenge time and Jeff tells them to prepare to get dirty. The point of the game is to score two goals with giant wooden balls. The first team to score two goals will win fishing gear along with something else.

The first round is incredibly physical but Amanda gets the goal after a lot of tugging and removal of clothing and makes it across the line with the ball without her top. When she realises, she exclaims that her mother is going to kill her.

In the second round Jean Robert proves his worth and forces his way down the zone being tackled by wrestler Ashley. The undertaker takes the ball across the line after Jean Robert drags Frosti off him.

The twist in the reward is that Fei Long gets to kidnap a member of Zhan Hu. They pick Jamie which I’m sure she’ll be happy about. Jeff gives her something to open in private when she gets back to the other camp.

When Zhan Hu arrive back at camp it’s completely flooded and Dave feels justified by building a raised fire pit.

Back at Fei Long, Todd is wary of Jamie and talks about The Art of War and that they need to be vigilant and keep a close watchful eye on her while she is in camp.

Jamie opens the scroll that Jeff gave her which reads:

Before making an alliance with a neighbor, you must understand his intentions – Sun Tzu, The Art of War
In this sealed tube is a clue to a hidden immunity idol at the enemy camp. You must give this sealed clue to a member of this trbie before you rejoin your own tribe at the next immunity challenge.

Jean Robert and Aaron are fighting about his laziness. Courtney just wants some solidarity while Jamie is in camp. Jamie doesn’t know why they’re not winning after hearing them fighting.

Back at Zhan Hu, Ashley and Dave are arguing about the fire. Sherea doesn’t like how Dave is always talking down to her. Ashley thinks he’s going to end up shooting himself in the foot because he’s just so patronizing.

At Fei Long, Leslie is complaining about being sick and just wanting her bible so she can spend some time with God. Jamie approaches her and gives her the hidden immunity idol clue which she is stoked about. It reads: What is thought to be hidden may sometimes be seen. Though their eyes are not, yours must be keen. She talks to Todd and tells him about the clue. Todd can’t believe that she told him. He says that if she gets sick and goes, then he’ll be the only one with the clue.

The tribes need to use a giant Chinese puzzle log as a ram to bash through a wall and then work the log through a maze. The first tribe to sound their gong with their puzzle log will win immunity. Zhan Hu are sitting out Jamie while Fei Long are sitting out both Courtney and Leslie.

Fei Long make it through the first wall first with Zhan Hu not far behind them. Fei Long smash through the second wall while Zhan Hu struggle. Frosti takes over the lead position from Dave who is struggling. Working through the puzzle, Zhan Hu catches up and takes the lead until they reach a dead end and have to back it up. Fei Long doesn’t panic and works their log through and ring their gong first winning immunity and handing Zhan Hu another date with Jeff at tribal council.

Back at camp, Dave takes responsibility for the loss but he’s pretty confident that he’s not going home. Ashley believes that her head is on the block and is weighing up her options as to what to do to keep herself in the game. Jamie, Sherea and Frosti talk about the challenge and Dave’s leadership but that he is a hard worker and that they only want what is best for the tribe.

At tribal council, Ashley addresses Dave’s talking down to her. The rest of the tribe seem to be over Ashley and Dave’s constant bickering. Ashley and Dave are both pretty open about who they are voting for.

At the vote Ashley receives the majority and is voted out. She tells Dave that she’ll see him soon. Sherea isn’t happy about the result.

Tomorrw night it’s the men and then Wednesday night, one of them will dance no more.

Bonanza City, New Mexico is unlikely to even be a dot on a map these days as the inhabitants are long gone. The previous inhabitants ran it into the ground in the 1800’s due to lack of leadership and the tumbleweed is blowing down mainstreet. However, for the next 40 days it is going to have some new pioneers living in its presence.

40 new pioneers are going to try and fix the mistakes of their forefathers and build a town that works. The amazing thing is though, these pioneers are Children. The oldest just turned 15 and the youngest is only 8 and they’re from all walks of life. City kids, country kids, rich kids, poor kids and everything inbetween.

8 year old Jimmy from New Hampshire isn’t sure what to make of the fact that there wont be any adults out here and wonders if he’s going to die. Mallory isn’t sure what to make of it either and is there with her sister Olivia from Indiana. 11 year old Jared from Georgia is worried about breaking his leg or getting some bad disease.

40 kids. No Parents. No Teachers. This is Kid Nation.

Host of the show Jonathan Karsh greets the kids as they arrive on a school bus where he welcomes them to the middle of nowhere. The city is still a couple of miles away and to get there, they’re going to have to walk. They’ll also have to drag their supplies with with them.

There is a town council that is made up of 4 other kids. 11 year old Mike from Washington who is a Boy Scout, 10 year old Taylor from Georgia who is a pageant queen, 12 year old Anjay who is a spelling bee champ and 12 year old Laurel from Massachusetts who is a respected student leader. These kids are in charge for the time being but Jonathan warns them that nothing is permanent.

11 year old Divad from Georgia thinks that it’s all going to fall apart while 9 year old Cody wonders if they’re the right people and whether they’re going to get right back on the helicopter that they arrived in. 14 year old DK from Illinois wants to know if they’re being serious.

There is a fence that the kids have to follow and hike to Bonanza pulling their wagons behind them.

There is a town hall meeting in a few days where, if it is too hard, some of the kids can pull out.

While the kids get the wagons ready and collect the goats, Jonathan talks to the town council. He tells them that they need to go to the town hall and read a book that has further instructions and then tells them that every few days they will need to decide on a kid to give a gold star to. The gold star is worth $20,000 which leaves them with mouths gaping.

14 year old Sophia from Florida is annoyed at Mike who isn’t really helping to pull the wagons to town and instead is barking instructions. 15 year old Greg from Nevada agrees that Mike could be doing more, physically wise.

It’s a hard slog dragging the wagons into town. DK pulls a muscle in his leg and Greg helps him onto the top of the wagon to give him a ride into town.

9 year old Alex from Nevada is surprised there is no adults. The kids are surprized at what they find in town. Everything is in disarray and they try and figure out what to do but no one seems to know what to do.

They start trying to sort out some dinner and fill a pot with water and load it up with pasta but it’s too much pasta and it ends up getting dumped in the street.

Sophia steps up to the plate and says that they should follow a recipe book that they’ve found since no one knows how to cook. 11 year old Jared from Georgia says he’s so hungry he wants to eat off his own leg. The pasta is taking forever to cook abd everyone is starving after a long day.

Taylor is crying and missing her home. Not really a strong leader for the rest of the kids.

Everyone wants to go to sleep so there will be no town meeting tonight. Mike is upset because he wants to make it work. Laurel and Taylor reaffirm him that everything is going to be better tomorrow.

The second day seems to start a bit better with a pancake breakfast. There are fresh eggs and goats milk but there are some kids who have missed out. There is a meeting but 14 year old Michael from Washington didn’t think there was any order. Neither did Greg who gets up in his face. Greg pushes Mike who is trying to asert his position. Some of the kids don’t like what is happening. Michael steps up and makes a speech to try and motivate everyone to actually build a society and show that kids can actually do it.

Mike and Greg patch things up but I don’t think that’s over yet.

The town council go to the hall to read the book that Jonathan told them about. The book says that they need to organise the town into four districts which they will each lead one of.

Anjay has the oldest kids in the blue district. Taylor has some of the younger kids in the yellow district. Mike has the red district and Laruel has the green district.

Jimmy is in Laurel’s district and is upset and thinks that he might be too young to be doing this. He misses his family and Laurel is nice to him to try and ease his mind.

While everyone is asleep, a couple of the older guys take some chalk and graffiti “Go Blue” around the town. When everyone wakes up, they’re not impressed.

Jonathan rings the bell and calls the pioneers together and asks if they think it’s a little unorganized. They all put their hands up. There is a a board in front of them which lists off a number of jobs and wages. Jonathan tells them that they will be running stores and doing jobs in order to keep the town running. Laborers get 10c for hauling water, doing laundry, garbage and latrine. Cooks get 25c. Merchants get 50c for running the stores and then there is the upper class who get $1.00 and have no assigned chores. To get assigned their chores there will be a showdown. It’s fairly chaotic.

The first showdown is all about teamwork and leadership. They need to fill three bottles with water in their color. They need to follow a map and find pipes and pump water out and catch the water and race it back to their bottles. Red fills their bottles first and manages to get home in front of blue to claim the upper class. Blue will be the merchants. Yellow district wins the cooks. Leaving green with the laborers jobs.

If they completed the task in 60 minutes then then entire town would win a big reward. The green team finished with 14 seconds on the clock. There are two rewards they must choose from. 7 more out houses or a TV. The council deliberate and decide on the toilets.

Everyone is loving the yellow team in the morning because their breakfast is great. However, yellow team doesn’t want to clean up and do dishes.

The merchants check out their merchant stores and are pretty excited by all the candy and soda.

While they pioneers start to spend their money on chocolate and soda, Sophia discovers a bike in one of the stores for $3 which she desperately wants. She starts busking for nickles and manages to raise enough to buy the bike.

Mike and Anjay talk about who they should give the gold star to. They go get Laurel and it looks like it is going to come down to either Michael or Sophia.

The first Bonanza City town hall meeting takes place. Jonathan asks everyone if they’re happy with the council. Everyone is but Sophia who is annoyed about the yellow district not wanting to clean up after cooking.

Jonathan asks if anyone wants to go home. He tells them that the decision is irreversible. Taylor has decided to stay. Jimmy wants to go though. The others try to convince him to stay but he was just too homesick.

One last piece of business to deal with. Who is getting the gold star. The council has decided to give the star to Sophia. Sophia’s jaw drops when Jonathan tells her that the star is worth $20,000. Jonathan gives her a key to the only building in the town with a telephone where she gets to call her mom and tell her the good news. Her mother is so proud of her.
