1/25 CSI Miami Hummer H2There is much news in the land of Monday night TV. How I Met Your Mother and The Class are switching places. The CW is switching their Sunday night comedy lineup to Monday starting tonight with replays of the first episodes from this season. The shows 7th Heaven and Runaway will be moving to Sunday night starting next Sunday. Justice will be moving to its new timeslot after Prison Break starting after the baseball playoffs. Heroes has been picked up for the entire season and the second episode replays tonight on the Sci Fi Channel so you can catch it before the new episode tonight on NBC. What do you think of all this show movement? Will you be more likely to watch any of them?

Prime Picks

How I Met Your Mother (CBS): New. Barney tells Ted that his profession is a great way to meet women. The show has switched timeslots with The Class.
The Class (CBS): New. This show is really terrible but if you like How I Met Your Mother and you watch it in its new timeslot then this is the best you can do. Your best bet though would probably be to go get a snack or flip channels or something, maybe catch the second half of the Prison Break repeat on FOX.

Heroes (NBC): New. This is one of the best new shows of the season. It has an interesting premise and so far has been very entertaining. It has already been picked up by NBC for the entire season.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (NBC): New. This too is one of the best new shows of the season. Tonight one of the sketches was inadvertently copied from another source and members of the cast try to change it before it airs on the West Coast.

Solid Selections

Prison Break (FOX): Repeat. The plan to find where in the housing development the money is buried is put into action.

Two and a Half Men (CBS): New. Now that Alan and Kandi have split, Alan wants their dog.
The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): New. Ritchie asks his mom if he can attend church.

CSI: Miami (CBS): New. Male models are ending up dead and Natalia’s ex has started coming around.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): New. Emeril whips up some fabulous appetizers.

Sugar Skyscrapers (Food Network): New. The tallest sugar showpiece will win the day, if it can keep from cracking during the move.

Record Breakers Unwrapped (Food Network): Repeat. See the world’s biggest cookie factory, the biggest potato chip and more.

Other Options

  • Justice (FOX): Repeat. The show moves to Monday night after Prison Break after baseball.
  • What About Brian (ABC): Season Premiere. Dave and Deena are still having trouble six months later when Brian returns after leaving town.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has Monday Night Football with the Baltimore Ravens at the Denver Broncos.

Late Night

  • Battlestar Galactica (Sci Fi): Repeat. The two-hour third season premiere replays.
