Get the Latest Episodes of Lost at iTunesKidnapped has been sort of cancelled. It was not picked up for the entire season but will continue on with its original 13-episode order. The show producers had a plan from the beginning of how to wrap things up if it did not draw well ratings wise. Given the shows production costs and lackluster ratings I am at least glad that they will give us a conclusion. I really like it and thought it was well done. It will no longer be on Wednesday night but will move to Saturday night as of Oct. 21st for the rest of its run.

Prime Picks

Jericho (CBS): New. A stranger who is sick with radiation poisoning ends up in town and Jake and Hawkins sit by his side. That Hawkins guy knows more than he is letting on and is a bit on the creepy side.

Lost (ABC): New. Sun and Jin end up in trouble when their boat is spotted. Henry makes Jack an offer that will be hard to refuse. Runs 61 minutes.

The Nine (ABC): New. The hostages try to get on with their lives but find it difficult to do and Nick is in jeopardy of losing his job.

Solid Selections

30 Rock (NBC): Series Premiere. Tina Fey stretches her acting skills by playing a head writer at a comedy show. Things get a bit unpredictable when a brash network exec starts meddling with the show including insisting on hiring a wild and crazy actor and adding him to the cast. It looks like it might actually be good.
20 Good Years (NBC): Series Premiere. John Lithgow (3rd Rock From the Sun) and Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) play buddies that decide one day that they only have 20 good years left and must make each day count no matter what. Have not heard good things about this one.

Criminal Minds (CBS): New. The BAU team profiles a bank robber that forces his captives to undress before he leaves.

CSI: NY (CBS): New. A serial killer that uses codes from T-shirts as prompts for his murders must be figured out before he strikes again.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): New. Emeril whips of some recipes for the college student.

MythBusters (Discovery Channel): New. The guys test whether a high-tension cable when broken can slice a man in two.

Good Eats (Food Network): New. Alton tells you all you would ever want to know about popcorn.
Ham on the Street (Food Network): Repeat. Fun with classic sandwiches is had.

Other Options

  • Fastest Foods (Food Network): New. See some speed cooking in action.
  • Professional Poker Tour (Travel Channel): New. First quarter action from the Bellagio. Runs two hours.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has preseason NBA Basketball.
  • FOX will have either the ALCS or NLCS game with the other being on FX.
