Tonight on the Tube: Smallville, CSI, Trace, Chris, Earl, Office and Meet the Parents

Meet the ParentsWhat will you be watching tonight? Get some picks and ideas of what is worth watching tonight on TV. CSI is new tonight with the first of the final four episodes to close out the season. My Name Is Earl and The Office are back with new episodes tonight as they head down the final stretch for the season. Still can’t believe that the season is almost over. At least there will be some good shows on this summer. The Closer returns on TNT and a new show Saved debuts in June. The 4400 is supposed to be back at some point. Will you be watching?

Prime Picks

Smallville (WB): Clark saves a man’s life in Metropolis and also tries to talk to Lana about her relationship with Lex.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS): All the evidence for a case is stolen leaving it compromised.

Without a Trace (CBS): A teenage ice skater that is an Olympic hopeful disappears and the team investigates.

Solid Selections

Everybody Hates Chris (UPN): Chris finds a Playboy that belongs to his dad and takes it to school where it is taken and eventually ends up with the principal having a meeting with his parents.
My Name Is Earl (NBC): Repeat where Earl returns the hot dog cart only for Ralph to mess things up while working for the competition. This is one of the better episodes of the season.

My Name Is Earl (NBC): Earl attempts to return to a police officer a badge he stole years ago.
The Office (NBC): Dwight goes over the top with his investigation after he finds a half smoked joint in the parking lot.

Commander In Chief (ABC): Mac asks her new Attorney General to look into the urban unrest in nearby Maryland while she continues to try and find the missing missiles.

Other Options

That ‘70s Show (FOX): The real husband of Samantha shows up and Jackie decides to make a list of things she wants in a man.
That ‘70s Show (FOX): Jackie seeks advice from Donna after she realizes she has feelings for Fez. That must have been one wacky list she made.

The O.C. (FOX): Taylor is on a high while Summer falls flat and Marissa gets Volchok to attended the dance where one of the girls is elected queen. Can you say Prom in the O.C.?

ER (NBC): Pratt goes to Africa to help Carter. Abby thinks something is wrong when a woman and her granddaughter are brought into the ER. Runs 61 minutes and starts a minute before the hour.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): Emeril whips up some puff pastries in this repeat.

Meet the Parents (USA): Ben Stiller goes to meet his future fiancés’ family at the wedding of her sister. Robert De Niro is great as the father of the bride. Better than the second one.

Sports Notes

Doubleheader NHL Playoff games on OLN. ESPN2 has Thursday Night Baseball. TNT has an NBA Playoff doubleheader with the Miami Heat at the Chicago Bulls and then the Los Angeles Clippers at the Denver Nuggets. NBA TV has the New Jersey Nets at the Indiana Pacers.
