Dowload Episodes of 24 at Amazon UnboxTonight The New Adventures of Old Christine reappears on the CBS schedule with two episodes. The new show about a family of con artists, The Riches, premieres tonight on FX. Ricky Schroder is back on TV in 24. What will you be watching tonight?

Prime Picks

The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): New. After taking a few sleeping pills to help her sleep, Christine makes some embarrassing phone calls.
The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): New. Christine gets close to Richard’s brother and in the process learns of a secret. Normally it will be on after How I Met Your Mother, as this is its new timeslot.

24 (FOX): New. Ricky Schroder (NYPD Blue, Silver Spoons) joins the cast as the new top field agent to replace Agent Curtis Manning.

What About Brian (ABC): New. Meredith Baxter (Family Ties) guests as Deena’s mom, who comes for a visit. Adam and Nicole deal with their little fling while Brian gets some interesting invitations from his downstairs neighbors.

Solid Selections

House (FOX): Repeat. While the hospital is dealing with a meningitis outbreak, House notices a girl who doesn’t quite fit with that diagnosis and thinks it is something else.

Two and a Half Men (CBS): Repeat. The episode where Charlie is dating a woman who is just like his mother replays.
Rules of Engagement (CBS): New. When Jennifer gives Jeff a neck massage, his response leaves him feeling embarrassed.

The Black Donnellys (NBC): New. I have watched the first two episodes and the online only episode and have come to the conclusion that these guys are unbelievably stupid. The show should be called, The Black Moron-nellys. I just can’t put up with all the idiocy. Even the narrator, Joey Ice Cream, mentions how Tommy’s plans to keep his brothers out of trouble never seem to workout as intended and had led them to where they were now. Jimmy and Kevin are two of the dimmest characters I have ever seen. After the events of these three episodes, I don’t believe that these two people would have lived as long as they have in the world and neighborhood they do in the show. This is only the second best option tonight in this timeslot because CSI: Miami is a rerun. What do you think of The Black Donnellys? Will you be watching tonight?

Cable Choices

Wildfire (ABC Family): New. Kris’ half brother comes for a visit that she wasn’t expecting. This episode plays again later. A new Lincoln Heights plays right before.

Spuds Unwrapped (Food Network): Repeat. Find out all kinds of cool stuff about the potato.

The Riches (FX): Series Premiere. A family of con artists travels the country in their rundown RV bilking money out of unsuspecting people. When they run a car off the road and the inhabitants of the vehicle die, they decide to assume their identities. They end up moving into a mansion in a gated community and start living it up. Runs 75 minutes and plays twice.

Other Options

  • Emeril Live (Food Network): New. Emeril cooks up some great tasting pasta dishes.
  • Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo): New. What do you think Chris Rock’s favorite curse word is? Find out tonight as he spends two hours with James Lipton.
  • Kings of South Beach (A&E): Released 2007. This made for TV movie based on real events about a couple of friends living it up in Miami whose past catches up to them while running a hot new club in Miami. Runs two hours and plays again later.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN2 has Arena Football.
  • Versus has National Hockey League action.
