Tonight on the Tube: Kyle XY Marathon, Prison Break and The Closer

The Closer - The Complete First SeasonWith last night’s Emmys I don’t have too much of a problem with them as it seemed that the deserving got to take home the gear. Except for Kyra Sedgewick who I still think should have won for best actress in a drama. Tony Shalhoub won for Monk again, which given his competition should have been the lock of the night. Not that the other four aren’t funny but Tony Shalhoub is actually acting. The other four are just basically playing a version of themselves, aren’t they? In TV news for tonight if you have missed an episode of Kyle XY this summer you can catch a marathon of the season’s episodes today on ABC Family leading up to the season finale. For news about the upcoming TV season look no further than the Ultimate Guide to the Fall 2006 TV Schedule.

Prime Picks

Prison Break (FOX): New. Michael and Lincoln plan another breakout, this time to get Linc’s son out during a court appearance. The rest of the gang heads out on their own while Tweener tries blending in with the college crowd.
