Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006Well at least there are a few things new tonight. Nothing great but the some shows are new. You haven’t seen them but that doesn’t mean you will want too either. If we can get another close NBA Finals game that will by far be your best bet tonight. During the day I will be checking out the U.S. Open golf coverage on ESPN. It will be good to see Tiger Woods back out on the golf course competing with the likes of Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh. Who do you think will take this year’s Open? One of the big names or a lesser know player like last year’s Michael Campbell? What will you be watching on TV tonight?

Prime Picks

NBA Finals Game 4 (ABC): The Heat finally got a win last time but just barely pulled it out. They need to figure out to play like they did in the last seven minutes of the game for closer to the whole game if they want to win again. Runs about three hours and starts at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

Solid Selections

Gameshow Marathon (CBS): New. Tonight is Card Sharks.

So You Think You Can Dance (FOX): New. Two dancers hit the road after being eliminated tonight.

Windfall (NBC): New. Not a very good show after the first episode. Will they be able to show anything different? Most likely not but it is new and nothing else but somehow I don’t think that will be enough to sustain the solid opening ratings this week.

Cable Choices

99 Most Bizarre (TLC): New. In this case crimes like a burglar who lives above the store he robs.

Drew Carey’s Sporting Adventures (Travel Channel): New. Drew goes to Germany to partake in the opening games of the 2006 World Cup.

Last Comic Standing (Bravo): Repeat. If you missed Tuesday’s episode on NBC then you can catch it again here tonight.

Other Options

  • Goldfinger (AMC): Not the first Bond film with Sean Connery but probably his best. Runs two hours and 15 minutes.
  • The Showbiz Show with David Spade (Comedy Central): New. Takes a look at summer television, also Jack Black and Jaime Pressly.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has first round coverage of the U.S. Open golf tournament during the day and a repeat of highlights later that night.
  • ESPN2 has Thursday Night Baseball with the Boston Red Sox at the Minnesota Twins with a couple of World Cup matches early starting early in the morning hours.
  • Golf Channel has interviews and highlights after the rounds for the day finish at the U.S. Open golf tournament.
