MonkIt is sci-fi Friday with the two Stargates but really I find Monk and Psych on USA to be a lot more fun. Which do you watch and why? If you watch neither let us know why in the comments also.

Prime Picks

24 (FOX): Repeats. Two episodes where the action takes place between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., which is where Homeland Security takes over CTU and it is not the smoothest of transitions.

Numb3rs (CBS): Repeat. An Iraqi activist is killed and the team must find who is responsible before more problems arise.

Solid Selections

NCIS (CBS): Repeat. Ziva is investigated when a prisoner in her care dies and the director is kidnapped.

Kyle XY (ABC): Repeat. Monday’s episode is replayed where Kyle gets his first lesson in dealing with the female of the species and romance. Also we learn more about the creepy guy who has been following Kyle.

Law & Order (NBC): Repeat. A private military contractor is found dead in his hotel room.

Cable Choices

Take Home Chef (TLC): New. Main course of lamb and vegetables sound OK but the peanut butter ice cream over fried plantains sound really good.
Take Home Chef (TLC): New. Prosciutto wrapped chicken with a silky smooth tiramisu for dessert.

Monk (USA): New. Monk steps in to coach Natalie’s daughter Julie’s basketball team after the coach is murdered so he can figure out what happened.

Psych (USA): New. A case, a wedding and a fake psychic sounds like fun.

Other Options

  • $40-a-Day (Food Network): Repeat. My hometown of Seattle, WA is the destination Rachael Ray visits with her couple of twenties in this episode.
  • Eureka (Sci Fi Channel): Repeat. The two-hour pilot replays tonight before the two Stargates. I haven’t got a chance to watch it yet. If you have seen it was it any good?
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FX): Repeats. The new episode from earlier this week and another episode replay tonight.
  • Stargate Atlantis (Sci Fi Channel): New. The team has to figure out what to do with a bunch of Wraith prisoners that are in human form.
  • Stargate SG-1 (Sci Fi Channel): New. The team searches for a weapon that can destroy the Ori.
  • The Unit (CBS): Repeat. This is a great episode where Jonas must decide to continue on mission to capture a Taliban leader or go back for Bravo team when their helicopter goes down.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has 2006 World Series of Poker coverage even though it really isn’t a sport.
  • ESPN2 has Friday Night Fights preceded by two episodes of The Contender.
  • OLN has Stage 18 of the Tour de France
