Tonight on the Tube: Alien Invasion under the Surface

Saturday is replete with reruns galore. Catch up or get a look at shows you may have missed. If only CBS was showing the last couple episodes of Threshold we could’ve had a three way battle for alien supremacy tonight.

Prime Picks

Invasion (ABC): Replay of the Pilot episode of this creepy alien invasion story set in a small town in Florida after a hurricane.

Invasion (ABC): Replay of the second episode of this new ABC show. If you missed it earlier this week here is your second shot.

Commander in Chief (ABC): Repeat showing of the series debut of this show, which I am not sure about yet. It was pretty good but we will have to see how they develop the story. They definitely could have some fun with the First Gentlemen and his new duties.

Other Options

Surface (NBC): Rerun of Episode 1, which I didn’t care for all that much.

Surface (NBC): Rerun of Episode 2, which was much better. The giant creature special effects are pretty good.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): Rerun where Stabler has to control his emotions while interrogating a man played by Matthew Modine who may have killed a teenage girl.

Other Options

CSI: Miami (CBS): Repeat of the money plane episode from last season.

Cold Case (CBS): Repeat episode where the unsolved case of a murdered 12-year-old girl back in 1989 is reopened.

48 Hours Mystery (CBS): Out of the Shadows is the title of this show where the story of a man suspected of killing his wife is told. Turns out it was the BTK killer and not him.

Cable Choices

The FBI Files (Discovery Channel): Find out about Stolen Identities on tonight’s episode.

Restaurant Revamp (Food Network): Bobbly Flay helps struggling restaurant owners improve their businesses using his expertise.

Design on a Dime (HGTV): New episode.
Design on a Dime (HGTV): Repeat episode.


The 31st season premiere of Saturday Night Live is tonight with host Steve Carell and musical performances by Kanye West. Also there is a new episode of MADtv on tonight with a spoof of 24.

Some UPN stations will be airing a repeat of the Veronica Mars season premiere this weekend. If you live in the Seattle area, as does the TVaholic, you will find it tonight in the first hour of primetime.
