TeXShop doesn't use Preview to display the pdf but it's own pdf  
display which uses the same PDFKit framework as Preview. As far as I  
know it can't directly use any other external pdf display application.  
You could write a macro that will open up the pdf in Acrobat Reader.

By the way, is there a missing option from the internal previewer that  
you need?

Good Luck,
