Tonight on the Tube: The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, Six Degrees and Throwdown with Bobby Flay

Bobby Flay's Grilling For Life: 75 Healthier Ideas for Big Flavor from the FireBobby Flay isn’t competing in the only throwdown tonight as Grey’s Anatomy and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation goes scalpel-to-flashlight for a second week. All for television supremacy and the title of most watched show on TV. Grey’s beat out CSI in the ratings last week. Can it do it again? About the same number of males watched Grey’s as CSI but female viewers were 2-to-1 in favor of Grey’s. The CW throws their hat in the ring tonight in the second hour of primetime with the season premiere of Supernatural. Once the lame Celebrity Duets is gone and baseball finished we will get the FOX premiere of The O.C. on Nov. 2nd. It will be interesting to see what kind of audience these two shows and NBC’s Deal or No Deal can draw up against Grey’s and CSI.

Prime Picks

My Name Is Earl (NBC): New. Burt Reynolds plays the owner of a strip club and he wants Catalina to come back to work for him.
The Office (NBC): New. Michael puts together a little shindig in his room at a convention that Dwight and Jan are also attending. Who else might we see there? How great were those scenes with Jim in the other office?

Grey’s Anatomy (ABC): New. Cristina meets Burke’s parents as we have seen in the commercials. Meredith is trying to decide between McDreamy and McVet. The interns try to get Izzie reinstated. Runs 61 minutes.

Six Degrees (ABC): New. Mae has decided to stay in New York and continue working for Laura. Carlos has taken on an attempted murder case. I thought this was a pretty interesting show. We shall see if it can build from there and keep us interested.

Solid Selections

Smallville (The CW): Season Premiere. Clark is trapped in the phantom zone and Zod in Lex’s body prepares to destroy Earth. How will Clark get out? Can’t wait to see.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS): New. Clues from the miniature crime scene are followed and Danny Bonaduce guest stars. Last week’s episode was kind of strange in that it wrapped up the cases early so they could introduce new ones for this week. What did you think of that?

Shark (CBS): New. The Mayor wants him to prosecute the case of an undercover narcotics cop who was killed. This could go a long way to getting in better with the cops.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): Repeat. Emeril whips up some grub fit for a hunter.

Iron Chef America (Food Network): Repeat. Cat Cora takes on two chefs.

Throwdown with Bobby Flay (Food Network): New. A chowder battle is boiled.
Ace of Cakes (Food Network): New. Twenty cakes are in need of decorating.

Other Options

  • Supernatural (The CW): Season Premiere. One of the guys hangs between life and death as the other two take on an old adversary.
  • Ugly Betty (ABC): Series Premiere. A woman of plain looks gets a job in the high fashion industry. Holy fish out of water, Batman! It is said to be really good. We shall see.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has first round coverage of the American Express Championship golf tournament and Auburn at South Carolina in college football action later.
  • ESPN2 has Thursday Night Baseball with the Baltimore Orioles at the New York Yankees.
  • TBS has the New York Mets at the Atlanta Braves.
