Ask Matt: Lamenting Terminator's Move to Friday, Protesting Izzie's Ghost Love and More!

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

TV Guide's Senior Critic Matt Roush takes your TV questions. Have a rant, rave or burning question about your favorite show you'd like addressed? E-mail him here!

Question: Sometimes I ask God why it was decided that I should be a sci-fi geek. I don't know about anyone else, but I have been impressed with the character development on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It is clear that Fox asked the producers to cut back on special effects to save money, so the writers had to actually (gasp!) write. I think they've done a wonderful job. I am enjoying the development of John and Cameron the most, but also of Sarah, Derek and Ellison. And then Fox pulls a Firefly on me and moves it to Friday along with Dollhouse. I don't understand how Fox and other networks cannot get this ...

Kath & Kim: Girl Talk with Selma Blair and Molly Shannon

Molly Shannon and Selma Blair

Joining NBC's successful Thursday-night comedy block isn't easy for any new show, but Kath & Kim (8:30 pm/ET) has had a particularly tough go at it in a year when all of NBC's comedies (including 30 Rock, The Office and My Name Is Earl) have posted decreased ratings. But with a full-season vote of confidence from the network, Kath & Kim is forging ahead with, among other storylines, wedding plans. Join us for a little girl talk with executive producer Michelle Nader and stars Molly Shannon and Selma Blair, who tell us how they interpreted the Australian original, their own celebrity crushes and what it takes to be considered a "good eater" on camera.

Samantha, Kath & Kim Receive Full-Season Pickups

Christina Applegate in Samantha Who?, Molly Shannon and Selma Blair in Kath & Kim

Two more shows can breathe a little deeper now that they have received full-season (or almost full-season) orders.

ABC has ordered seven new episodes of sophomore comedy Samantha Who?,  bringing the full-season count to 20, two shy of the usual order. (The network isn't "forgetting" about Sam, but rather says the smaller order is only a result of having a wealth of midseason shows, like Scrubs and According to Jim (groan), on deck.)

Receiving the traditional "back-nine" pickup is NBC's Kath & Kim, starring Molly Shannon and Selma Blair as a dopey mother-daughter duo. More details on these shows and their pickups after the jump. read more

Ratings: Death Becomes CSI, Mars Shows Life

CSI and Life on Mars

Thursday's ratings rundown:

8 pm/ET
Survivor: Gabon this week topped the hour (and demos) with 13.3 million total viewers, up 450K. In second, Ugly Betty held steady at 8.48 mil. NBC's Earl matched last week's 7.1 mil, while brand-new lead-out Kath & Kim added 360 thou to that count. Smallville inched up 130K, to 4.08 mil.

9 pm
CSI returned to an audience of 22.99 mil, down seven percent from its previous opener, and bested Grey's Anatomy in the 18-49 demo for the first time ever. Grey's dropped 20 percent from its premiere, with 14.54 mil. The Office did a typical nine mil, then SNL's new Thursday showcase built the audience to 10.6 mil. (Yeah, that’s the ticket!) Supernatural slid 430 thou, to 3.14 mil.

10 pm
It was neck-and-neck for dueling newbies Life on Mars (11.6 million) and Eleventh Hour (11.59 mil), though ABC came out on top in the demos. As a Grey's lead-out, Mars improved on Big Shots' year-ago performance by three million.
