Tonight on the Tube: Season Finales, Prison Break, 24 and The Riches

Prison Break: The Classified FBI FilesIt is season finale time for What About Brian on ABC and Wildfire on ABC Family. What About Brian is considered to be on the bubble for making it another season. Would you like to see it return next fall? It is not the best show, but it is certainly a lot better than ABC’s new October Road, which is aimed at the same audience demographic. The 30ish crowd; give or take a couple of years.

Prime Picks

Prison Break (FOX): New. Michael wants to take down T-Bag for good. Lincoln and Mahone get into it. Sara has to face the music in court and Kellerman has decided what will become of him.

24 (FOX): New. Jack and Doyle have to head out on another mission while they might try to take the president out of his coma to try and stave of a nuclear retaliation by the VP.

What About Brian (ABC): Season Finale. Dave and Deena are trying to get away for a secret renewal of their wedding vows while Nicole is being overwhelmed by business at the cupcake shop. Brian and Adam are baby-sitting when Natasha interrupts them.

Solid Selections

How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Repeat. The one with Jane Seymour as Marshall’s older, but hot law professor.
The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): Repeat. Christine gets stuck having to have lunch duty at Ritchie’s school with Stan, played by Andy Richter.

Heroes (NBC): Repeat. The “Company Man” episode where Matt and Ted take H.R.G. and his family hostage while trying to find out answers to what has happened to them. This was a really good episode.

CSI: Miami (CBS): Repeat. A Marine recruiter is killed and the team investigates.

Cable Choices

Wildfire (ABC Family): Season Finale. Kris and Matt are thinking about selling to Sheik Omar for a couple million even though it might not be quite legally possible to do so. Plays again later. A new Lincoln Heights plays right before this episode.

Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern (Travel Channel): New. See some truly interesting eats from the U.S. Gulf Coast region.

The Riches (FX): New. Wayne goes in for his first day of work and his first task is to fire the guy that he is replacing. Dahlia tries to work out a plan to get the kids into a private school. This is a very interesting show and well worth giving a look. I have been watching the late night Saturday repeats and find the show quite good. Runs 68 minutes and plays twice.

Other Options

  • Friends (TBS): Repeats. Four episodes play, but the first of the four is one of my favorites with guest star Rebecca Romijn (Ugly Betty, Pepper Dennis) as the dirty living paleontologist that Ross is dating.
  • Rules of Engagement (CBS): Repeat. “The Birthday Deal” episode replays.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS): Repeat. Charlie tries to help Berta confront the guy who knocked up her daughter.
