Tonight on the Tube: NCIS, The Unit, Boston Legal, American Idol, Scrubs and The Shield

in Tonight on the Tube

Paula Deen & Friends: Living It Up, Southern StyleIt will be interesting to see what type of ratings The Unit gets this week after opening very good last week. Given that American Idol is two hours tonight and will be in competition with it, the numbers may drop. Yet I wouldn’t think that a large part of the audience for The Unit would be American Idol watchers, so maybe it won’t. It looks like Joey may have met its final demise as NBC is choosing to run Most Outrageous Moments instead of Joey episodes up against the first hour of American Idol. I can’t imagine that they thought it was going to do well last week in the same spot. Network executives boggle the mind. What will you be watching tonight?

Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): A student at a Quantico Marine Base high school has a bomb strapped to him and is threatening to use it.
