What to Watch: TV Picks for September 12 - 18

Survivor: South Pacific - Wednesday September 14, 8PM ET/PT, CBS/Global

'Survivor' returns, looking a lot like last season. The Redemption Island twist is back, as are two previous castaways, Coach and Ozzy. Which is a far cry from Rob and Russell, but I can see why the producers would be eager to reproduce the experiment that led to such an interesting game last time. Another round of Coach wisdom is just about the last thing I was hoping for but I imagine he'll get himself voted off pretty quick. The other thing that hasn't changed -- the prize is still a million dollars. It makes you wonder when they're gonna get a cost-of-living or inflation raise on this show.

Anderson
- Monday September 12, 3PM ET CTV Two, 5 PM ET CTV

CNN's silver fox, Anderson Cooper, steps into the daytime arena, hoping to cash in, one supposes, on Oprah's absence. His first episode includes a sit-down interview with the family of Amy Winehouse, a tanning session with Snooki and movie patter with Sarah Jessica Parker and the rest of the cast of 'I Don't Know How She Does It.'

America's Next Top Model - Wednesday September 14, 9PM ET, The CW/ CTV Two

This is likely the second last season of this show -- which is fine with me, even though I've been a fan over the years. Like models, few TV shows are meant to work for more than a decade. They're calling this an all-star season, with returning models from all the way back to Cycle 1. Crazy Lisa, porny Brittany, and mean Bre are among them. But as far as I'm concerned, unless it includes Blind Amanda, it's not really all-star at all.

Ringer - Friday September 16, 10PM ET/PT, The CW/ Global

I'm really hoping to like this show. Not just because it's Sarah Michelle Gellar and she was Buffy and I loved 'Buffy,' but because it's really been ages since I've loved a network show. The conspiracy and mistaken identity themes are right in my wheelhouse, I like the star and the preview clips look pretty great. So why do I have such a bad feeling about it?
