Tonight on the Tube: Idol, House, Boston Legal, The Unit and The Shield

Get Boston Legal - Season 2 on DVDTonight on FX is the sixth season premiere of The Shield. ABC hands out some results on Dancing With the Stars. Tony Bennett tries to help the remaining nine contestants on American Idol. The Boston Legal people go into the old show archive and come out with what sounds like a very clever plot, using old footage from a lawyer show William Shatner was on in 1957. Also, the women’s college basketball championship is decided tonight on ESPN. It looks like a pretty good night of TV. What will you be watching?

Prime Picks
