Tonight on the Tube: Lights, Knights, Busters, Ballers and The Sopranos

Find The Sopranos - The Complete First Five Seasons at AmazonBesides the picks below you will also find the series premiere of the reality show Armed & Famous. Given the casting maybe they should have called “Armed & Infamous,” I only new who two of them were before reading the show synopsis. A better way to spend an hour, if you must watch a reality show, is Beauty and the Geek. Overall though, I would just stick with the Prime Picks for your best bets on TV tonight.

Prime Picks

Friday Night Lights (NBC): New. The Panthers are waiting to find out what happens between two other teams while Matt’s dad finds adjusting to life back home difficult and Street’s family has decided to file a lawsuit against coach.

The Knights of Prosperity (CBS): New. I didn’t find the first episode all that funny but it at least had some energy and pace. It doesn’t meander along. Maybe now that the premise has been set they can put more work into the laughs. What did you think of the first episode?
In Case of Emergency (CBS): New. Maybe this show as well once they got the premise out of the way they can get down to the funny. The premiere of this show was almost worse than The Class, which it has many a similarity to. Just because you take a bunch of likable actors and put them together doesn’t mean you will create something likable. What did you think of this show?

Medium (NBC): New. While helping to investigate the death of a congressman Allison starts having visions of a boy trapped down a well.

Solid Selections

Bones (FOX): Repeat. The team goes up against a serial killer in this replay.

Criminal Minds (CBS): Repeat. The episode where Elle makes the decision that leads to her leaving the show.

CSI: NY (CBS): Repeat. A young girl who wants to be a SuicideGirl winds up dead while a streetballer ends up the same way at Rucker Park.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): Repeat. Emeril cooks up a menu on a budget.

MythBusters (Discovery Channel): New. The guys try to figure out if hydrogen was the cause of the Hindenburg disaster.

TV Land Myths & Legends (TV Land): Series Premiere. Scandals, rumors and the mysteries that have surrounded some of your favorite films, television shows and songs are looked into.

Other Options

  • The Sopranos (A&E): Repeat. The blurred and bleeped version of the HBO series makes its regular cable debut tonight with the “Pilot” episode.
  • The Wire (BET): Repeat. This show is also making its regular cable debut tonight with the two-hour “Target” episode. See how it all began.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has college basketball with Duke at Georgia Tech followed by the San Antonio Spurs at the Denver Nuggets in NBA action.
  • ESPN2 has a college basketball doubleheader with Pittsburgh at DePaul followed by Oklahoma State at Kansas.
