Tonight on the Tube: Heroes, Studio 60 and Monday Night Football

Download Heroes Episodes at iTunesNBC announced last week some changes to its midseason lineup but as of now none of the changes affect Monday night. It will continue to be Deal or No Deal, Heroes and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. I really thought the Studio 60 might be moving but alas NBC has decided to keep it where it is for now. Last week was the fall finale of Prison Break. Episodes will return January 22nd and be followed by the fifth episode of the new season of 24, which premieres with two episodes on Sunday, January 14th and Monday, January 15th. That will make for some good TV watching and some competition for Heroes in the second hour of primetime. Which of the shows will you watch and which one will you TiVo for later?

How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Repeat. The second season premiere episode, “Where Were We?,” replays tonight with the gang trying to cheer up Marshall over Lily going to San Francisco.
