Tonight on the Tube: How I Met Your Mother, Sleeper Cell, CSI: Miami and The Lost Room

1/25 CSI Miami Hummer H2 Available at AmazonThis seems like the time for miniseries as another one starts tonight on the Sci Fi Channel with The Lost Room. Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) and Julianna Marguiles (ER) star in this three-night, six-hour show. Sleeper Cell on Showtime continues tonight and the rest of the week until next Sunday. To help out with all the good stuff on TV so you won’t overload your TiVo you can watch Sleeper Cell in its entirety on Showtime on Demand if you have it. Sometimes there is just to many good shows on at the same time and on Demand programming really helps out this TVaholic. That is how I watch Dexter and many of CBS’ TV shows like the CSI’s and others via Comcast on Demand. Have you taken advantage of the on Demand capabilities of your cable service? It is TV almost whenever you want it and without having to record it, which is pretty great.
