Tonight on the Tube: NCIS, House, Boston Legal, Standoff, Veronica Mars and Overhaulin’

NBA Official Microfiber Composite Game BallHappy Halloween. Many a show is Halloween themed tonight. Things you will want to see include: Abby’s costume on NCIS, a patient stand up to House, Veronica get robbed but not for long, wacky happenings on Boston Legal and Friday Night Lights if you didn’t watch it last night on NBC. Also this is the first night of the new NBA Basketball season. There are two games tonight on TNT. The rest of the teams get things started tomorrow night. Seems as though it wasn’t that long ago that I was watching the Miami Heat win the NBA Finals and tonight they will be receiving their rings. Time sure flies when you watch a lot of TV.
