Tonight on the Tube: Emmys, 4400-a-thon, Dead Zone and Entourage

The Best in Television: 50 Years of EmmysTonight is the Emmys. I never get too excited about these awards shows. All I know about this year’s contest is that Kyra Sedgwick should win for her character on The Closer on TNT. Other than that I don’t even know who is up for what really. In other tube news if you want to catch last week’s “Manhunt” episode of Prison Break or the pilot episode of Vanished they both play today on FX, appropriately between the movies The Rundown and The Missing. For a look at what the fall season has to offer, check out the Ultimate Guide to the Fall 2006 Schedule.
