University of Washington Huskies License Plate FrameNext week NBC begins playing the remaining episodes of Kidnapped. At least they are giving the few fans that did watch, which included me, a resolution to the plot making it like a 13 part mini series. It looks like sports will be your best bet tonight on the tube with plenty of action to choose from. Whether you like baseball, football, golf or racing there is something for every sports fan.

Prime Picks
