Tonight on the Tube: Friday Night Lights, A Great House Repeat, Boston Legal and the Jimmy V Classic

House, M.D. - Season One on DVDThere is a new episode of Friday Night Lights on tonight but starting next year NBC will be changing up their schedule a bit. One of the changes is that Friday Night Lights will be moving to Wednesday nights to get out of the way of the next season of American Idol on FOX. If you are looking for 3 Lbs tonight you won’t find it because CBS has pulled it. That was only one episode per pound that made the air before being yanked. I guess it performed even worse than Smith, which was the previous owner of the third hour of primetime slot on CBS. This time period on CBS killed off two shows last season as well. The pretty good Threshold after switching places with Close to Home and one of my favorite shows from last season the short lived Love Monkey. Repeats of CBS procedurals will play there until they can find another show they want to kill off quickly. Had you been watching 3 Lbs? What do you think of its quick demise?
