The West Wing - The Complete First SeasonABC has a two-hour Extreme Makeover: Home Edition so no Desperate Housewives tonight and it is followed by a repeat Grey’s Anatomy. That leaves NBC with a lineup of all new episodes tonight as the prime picks. My must see TV event of the day is the final round of The Masters on CBS. It is setting up much like last year with Tiger down just a few strokes and nine holes of the third round left to play in the morning. All of the Big 5 is in the hunt. Tiger, Vijay, Phil, Ernie and Retief are all within four shots of the leader Chad Campbell as play was suspended do to darkness last night. Who do you think will win The Masters?
