in Tonight on the Tube

The Closer - The Complete First SeasonNetwork TV is basically barren of anything worth watching tonight with all the repeats. Unless you haven’t seen them, then they are new to you. Your best of the best bet tonight as always is The Closer on TNT. The show fails to disappoint week after week. Have you been watching? If not you should be. What will you be watching?

Prime Picks

The King of Queens (CBS): Repeat. Carrie’s dad brings back bug-infested sheets and the whole house needs to be fumigated.
How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Repeat. Ted accidentally messes up a friend’s potential wedding by trying to get Robin on the guest list so he can take her as her date.

Two and a Half Men (CBS): Repeat. It is Jake’s birthday and Alan is trying to avoid bring his very young girlfriend to the party. This was a very funny episode.
How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Repeat. Ted meets a great girl at the wedding and has a fantastic night even though they agree to not exchange names or numbers. Ted decides he must track her down and Robin realizes she has feelings for Ted.

CSI: Miami (CBS): Repeat. The death of a young woman on a boat trapped in shark-infested waters is investigated.

Medium (NBC): Repeat. Allison dreams about her brother being a part of a bank robbery and then he shows up.

Cable Choices

Kyle XY (ABC Family): New. More is revealed about the creepy guy following Kyle. Tonight Kyle gets his first lessons in romance and dealing with girls.

The Closer (TNT): New. The team investigates the death of a photographer who fell from a hotel balcony. An actor with something to hide becomes the prime suspect. On the home front Brenda thinks Fritz is starting to act a bit strangely. This show has some of the best opening sequence I have ever seen. They set up the plot and draw you in. It plays again after Saved.

Saved (TNT): New. Wyatt and the gang get a new supervisor that tries to whip them into shape. I am sure that goes over real well.

Other Options
