Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): The commander who is in charge of a big shipment of nuclear weapons is abducted and Gibbs and the team try to get her back and protect the location of the shipment.

Commander In Chief (ABC): The country faces the possibility of nuclear war with North Korea continuing from where the show ended last week. Mac is put to the test leadership wise in situation that threatens to get out of control. On the plus side maybe the daughter will learn that her mother isn’t just kissing visiting dignitary ass and actually has to make some tough calls. Runs 61 minutes.

Boston Legal (ABC): Michael J. Fox continues his guest stint as a rich man dying of lung cancer. In this episode he convinces Denise that he should be her second chair in a case involving overbearing parents who harass the teacher of their daughter.

Solid Selections

Gilmore Girls (WB): Lorelai learns of Luke’s daughter and isn’t happy that he has not yet told her about the situation. If he wanted to keep it a secret, letting her hang out at the diner is probably not a good idea.

Scrubs (NBC): Dr. Cox’s sister comes to visit for her nephew’s baptism. She of a religious nature tries to challenge her brother’s faith.
Scrubs (NBC): Turk and Elliot can’t figure out what is causing their patience pain and Carla has trouble organizing everyone for the hospital group photo.

Love Monkey (CBS): This has prime pick written all over it but I can’t yet place it over Boston Legal until and episode has been watched. Tonight is the series premiere where Tom is dumped by his girlfriend and fired from his job. What a way to start.

Other Options

American Idol (FOX): Just in case you were unaware, American Idol starts the new season tonight with a two-hour kick off.
