Tonight on the Tube: Law & Order and Numb3rs Season Fianles and Sci Fi Friday

Numb3rs - The Complete Second SeasonCBS has the season finale of Numb3rs and NBC has the season finale of Law & Order. You can see this past Monday’s episode of Heroes on Sci Fi right before Stargate SG-1 and the rest of the Sci Fi Friday lineup begins tonight. Friday nights for next fall actually look pretty good, but that can change in a hurry. ABC will have the return of Men in Trees and then the new show Women’s Murder Club. CBS will have the new vampire detective show Moonlight between the returning Ghost Whisperer and Numb3rs. FOX looks as if they will be searching for a great American band and following around country wannabes in Nashville. The CW will still have wrestling. NBC will have some sort of game show followed by Las Vegas and then some of the best news from this past week, the return of Friday Night Lights. That is a total of seven scripted dramas for what almost became a total TV wasteland this past season, for the most part.

Prime Picks

House (FOX): Repeat. A heart transplant patient has been living in a clean room, but has gotten sick anyway. How has this happened and can House figure it out in time?

Solid Selections

America’s Funniest Home Videos (ABC): New. Videos taken by people at home that are funny are shown.

National Bingo Night (ABC): Series Premiere. Contestants face off against the audience in a game of bingo. I read somewhere that Jimmy Kimmel said that this show makes Deal or No Deal look like Jeopardy, or something to that effect.

Law & Order (NBC): Season Finale. Harry Hamlin (LA Law) guests as a former senator suspected of murdering his ex-wife. Will return in the first hour of primetime slot on Sunday nights after Sunday Night Football ends its fall run.

Other Options

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has an NBA Playoff doubleheader with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the New Jersey Nets followed by the Phoenix Suns at the San Antonio Spurs.

Late Night
