Tonight on the Tube: NCIS, House, Legal, Idol, Unit, Joey and Scrubs

World Baseball Classic Cap United StatesTonight is the premiere of The Unit on CBS and Sons & Daughters on ABC. The Unit looks good and Sons & Daughters looks bad. Usually when a comedy is advertised they show you most of the really funny stuff from the episode to get you interested in watching the show. Then you are kind of disappointed because you already saw and laughed at the funny stuff and it wasn’t that funny a second time when you are watching the show. In the case of Sons & Daughters not one of the commercials has even elicited a chuckle or even a smile. So if the stuff in the ad is the best stuff from the show as is usual then this is going to be really bad. Besides what is the deal with the partially scripted and partially improvisational comedies, the recent Free Ride from FOX is that kind of show and it might just be the worst show I have seen this season. We shall see if Sons & Daughters gives it a run for worst show. What will you be watching tonight?

Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): The team is on a search for a woman missing from a Marine’s campsite who is also missing.

House (FOX): The team has to cure a dead woman so they can use her organs to save another patient.

Boston Legal (ABC): Denny finds away to cure his depression over his failed marriage and nude photos of Shirley Schmidt taken by a famous photographer go up for auction.

Solid Selections

The Unit (CBS): A new dramaction show starring Dennis Haysbert as the leader of a team of covert military operatives that in the series premiere tonight rescue a hijacked plane full of European businessmen.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): Repeat where a suspect attacks Detective Fin.

Other Options

Joey (NBC): Joey is acting weird around Alex when she continues her romance with Dean.
According to Jim (ABC): This is new or you could watch the repeat Joey.

Scrubs (NBC): Only one new episode tonight, the second a repeat of a cast favorite. J.D. and Dr. Cox get closer as they watch their favorite patient decline in health.
Scrubs (NBC): Repeat of My Last Chance a cast favorite. You could watch Sons & Daughters on ABC but it looks really bad. I would stick with Scrubs if you are looking for a laugh.

The Amazing Race (CBS): Tonight these people get filthy and they love it.

Cable Choices

Overhaulin’ (TLC): A 67 Charger a man got from his father is restored.

Dirty Jobs (Discovery Channel): Mushroom farming and sewers are explored. Sounds dirty to me.

The Shield (FX): Vic and the guys struggle to get Lem bailed out because their finances have been frozen. Runs 64 minutes and repeats again right after.

Sports Notes

ESPN2 has USA versus Mexico in the World Baseball Classic followed by PTI and then a couple of college basketball games. ESPN has the Dominican Republic versus Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic early in the day and later has a couple of college basketball games. The college basketball games are conference tournament finals to see who gets into the final NCAA Tournament brackets.
