TV Guide has released a new teaser video for “Odyssey”, the next new episode of Smallville. The new episode picks up after a cliffhanger that saw Doomsday attacking Chloe and Jimmy Olsen’s wedding. The creature took Clark out with ease, put Jimmy in critical condition, and kidnapped Chloe. Hopefully in the next new episode we’ll learn more about Doomsday and why he took Chloe.

The episode airs on January 15th, 2009.

Tonight at 8pm is an all new episode of House, starring Hugh Laurie. The Fox medical drama is in its fifth season and is still as strong as ever. The new episode is holiday themed and is titled “Joy to the World”.

The network’s official description of tonight’s episode: “A troubled teen collapses during her high-school Christmas program; Foreman and Thirteen learn more about each other as they work together on the Huntington’s disease drug trial; House gives and receives holiday gifts, leading to team speculation; and Cuddy receives a gift as well.”

After making a few bonehead moves, including canceling My Own Worst Enemy, NBC has finally done something right.  The peacock network has signed a new deal with Jay Leno, that will keep him on the network after he passes The Tonight Show to Conan O’Brien.

While a date has not been set, the Associated Press reports that the deal would move Leno into primetime at 10pm. His show would be 5 days a week, with a simlar format to his Tonight Show, and double the amount of possible viewers as compared to his late night time slot.

I think this is awesome. I love Leno and I was getting worried that he might be taken off the air completely. Now, not only will he continue, but it’ll be ealrier, so I should be able to watch it on a regular basis. It should be interesting to see if the late night style works in primetime. The show might have a bigger possible audience, but it will also be facing off with bigger budget scripted dramas, like CSI, Without a Trace, Criminal Minds, and Eleventh Hour, to name a few. Will other networks follow suit and program late night styled shows in primetime?
