Tonight on the Tube: Prison Break, Heroes, Friday Night Lights and Monday Night Football

How I Met Your Mother: Season 1CBS is all about the repeat tonight. That includes one of my favorite episodes of How I Met Your Mother from last season, the Halloween episode. Everything else is pretty much new tonight across the rest of the networks. NBC is giving Friday Night Lights the third hour of primetime slot tonight instead of a repeat Studio 60 that was originally scheduled. Friday Night Lights is a pretty good show but is one of the new fall shows that is on the bubble. NBC has ordered a few more scripts, which is a positive. Hopefully with CSI: Miami a repeat, a few more people will give it a shot. I would really like to see this show make it for the season and possibly more. If you haven’t given it a go, you should really give it a chance. It is very well done.

Prime Picks

Prison Break (FOX): New. Michael in need of some info on the guy who is pursuing them decides to try and get close to Mahone’s wife while L.J. and Linc have a little trouble on the road. C-Note makes a play for his wife and kid and T-Bag gets a surprise.

Heroes (NBC): New. Hiro and Ando are made a deal they can’t refuse while Claire meets her biological parents. Isaac gets another call that puzzles him. This is one of the best new shows of the season.

Friday Night Lights (NBC): New. The coach has to decide which quarterback to start in the big game. If he loses it could be the end of the road for him as coach. This episode replays in its normal timeslot tomorrow.

Solid Selections

How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Repeat. Last year’s Halloween episode, “The Slutty Pumpkin,” replays. It was one of my favorite episodes of the inaugural season of this funny show.
All of Us (The CW): New. I haven’t even seen an episode of this show as of this writing but it has to be better than the repeat episode of The Class that comes on after How I Met Your Mother. One semi funny moment does not a comedy make. This episode of The Class only really had one of those and if you’ve seen the promo for this episode you have already seen it. So All of Us it is.

Justice (FOX): New. The firm represents the mother of a girl who died while with her rich boyfriend in a plane crash. They are suing the wealthy family for wrongful death.

What About Brian (ABC): New. Adam and Brian put a little money on who can get back into the dating game first while Brian gets used to having Dave bunk in at his place. Nicole is getting ready for her baby shower and looks like she is going to get some bad news based on the promos.

Cable Choices

Emeril’s Tricks and Treats (Food Network): Repeat. Get some ideas for some fun Halloween treats.

Unwrapped (Food Network): Repeat. Get a look at the makings of some of your favorite sweet treats.

The Secret Life Of … (Food Network): Repeat. Halloween is explored.

Other Options

  • Friends (TBS): Repeats. Four episodes play including the one where Joey asks the rest of the gang to help him with an interview for Soap Opera Digest.
  • Scrubs (Comedy Central): Repeats. Two episodes play including one with guest star Jay Mohr.
