Prime Picks

Smallville (The CW): Repeat. The sixth season finale, “Phantom,” replays tonight where Lana tells Lex its over and Clark goes after Lionel and everything ends up a bit bizarre.

Friday Night Lights (NBC): Repeat. This is the best show on TV that not very many people are watching. If you are thinking that, I don’t want to watch a show about football? That would be like not watching Grey’s Anatomy because you don’t want to watch a show about surgery. Football is just the backdrop for some truly interesting stories to be told by an outstanding cast of characters. You should give this show a shot. Right now NBC has the whole season available online.

Brothers & Sisters (ABC): Repeat. The series premiere, “Patriarchy,” replays. Here’s a chance to see how it all began.

Solid Selections

Cold Case (CBS): Repeat. The team reopens a case from 1994 about a teen suicide when a piece of paper that may shed some light on it is found.
