Today you will find an abundance of College Bowl games, see below for who is playing where. There are actually a few new episodes of TV shows worth a look on the networks. In the Holiday TV Show Marathon department there are a few of those running today as well. ABC Family is playing the entire first season of Wildfire today leading up to the first episode of season two. For a list of more TV show marathons see below. Happy Viewing!

Prime Picks

Arrested Development (FOX): S.O.B.s is the title of the episode. A fundraiser is held and hilarity ensues.
Arrested Development (FOX): Repeat with guest star Martin Short as Uncle Jack called in to help deal with Lucille 2.

Las Vegas (NBC): Ed and Danny try to track down a diamond thief after they go missing during the shooting of a music video.

Medium (NBC): Joe fears for their daughter when Allison can’t stop dreaming about a murderer who kills girls.

Solid Selections

Surface (NBC): Rich and Laura try to get their footage to the media before Lee finds them.

House (FOX): Repeat with a dying young girl with an amazing strength in the face of her situation. House is not sure whether it is or is just a symptom of her condition. This was a very good episode. It is definitely worth a look if you have not already seen it or if Las Vegas isn’t your cup of tequila.

CSI: Miami (CBS): Repeat where a teenage tourist goes missing.

Other Options

The King of Queens (CBS): Repeat where Doug thinks Deacon has replaced him with a new friend.
How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Repeat of the very funny Halloween episode. Barney with his many costumes and Ted goes in search of his pumpkin dream girl. This episode is one of the funniest of this show so far.

Two and a Half Men (CBS): Repeat with Charlie having a little trouble getting up and Rose tries to help him understand his problem as it relates to his mother. This show is always solidly funny but this episode was great.
Out of Practice (CBS): Repeat where Oliver loses his apartment and has to move in with Ben.

No third hour other option.

Cable Choices

Wildfire (ABC Family): Season Premiere. Replays again right after.

Unwrapped (Food Network): Get a look at the making of some of your favorite skinny snacks.
Unwrapped (Food Network): Repeat about protein snacks.

HGTV’s Dream House 2006 (HGTV): See it take shape from just a plot of land to the finished product.
