Tonight on the Tube: Lost, Criminal Minds, CSI: NY and American Idol Results

Lost: Secret Identity - Novelization #<a href=2" align="right" hspace="3" border="0" />The American Idol results show runs an hour tonight but it starts on the half hour. I hate it when shows like Lost, which is doing it tonight, run a few minutes past the hour. FOX tonight kicks this practice up a notch. This playing across the hour is really crappy. I don’t even watch the results show because who cares about all the machinations. I just want to know who was in the bottom three and who was sent home. I can find that out at by about 6:35 p.m. Pacific or so when some east coaster writes about it. Meanwhile I can enjoy and record some better shows that are on at the same time. What do you think about an hour long results show that runs over the hour? In other news this is post #300 here at TVaholic. I hope you find them useful and interesting. Thanks for reading!

Prime Picks

One Tree Hill (WB): Lucas tries to decide whether or not to play basketball. Brooke confronts Rachel with whatever it was she took from the locked cabinet at the cabin.

Lost (ABC): Rose doesn’t want Bernard creating an SOS signal. Jack and Kate deal with the romantic sparks between them. Runs 64 minutes.

CSI: NY (CBS): Unfortunately if you watch lost you will miss the first four minutes of tonight’s episode. The team investigates the murder of a would-be superhero. Seem like I just watched this idea in an episode of Bones earlier in the season.

Solid Selections

George Lopez (ABC): Can’t wait for Alias to return. This is the timeslot that it will be in when it does.
Freddie (ABC): Burt Reynolds guest stars.

Criminal Minds (CBS): The team heads to Mexico to and aid in the investigation of what looks to be a serial killer who preys on the elderly.

The Evidence (ABC): Five friends celebrating their sobriety are murdered.

Other Options

The Loop (FOX): Incredibly unfunny comedy. Runs 30 minutes.
American Idol (FOX): Tonight they take an hour to do what they could do in thirty seconds.
Unanimous (FOX): If you have been watching American Idol you might as well stick around. I would go grab a snack or something. Runs 30 minutes.

Law & Order (NBC): Repeat episode where a cop sought revenge on the suspect who killed his friend and then tries to avoid prosecution by saying he will expose evidence that may be tainted in other cases he was involved in.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): New. Tonight stress free recipes are prepared.

World Poker Tour (Travel Channel): The Doyle Brunson North American Poker Championship. Six players play for $4 million.

Sports Notes

ESPN has MLB Baseball early with the Kansas City Royals at the New York Yankees and NBA Basketball with the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Detroit Pistons later in the day while ESPN2 has MLB action with the Toronto Blue Jays taking on the Boston Red Sox.
