Tonight on the Tube: Traveler, Rescue Me and Last Comic Standing

Rescue Me - SoundtrackDon’t Forget the Lyrics premieres tonight on FOX. Last night was NBC’s chance to enter the competition for singing show dominance. The Singing Bee was originally going to start in early fall, but when FOX announced a similar show, NBC moved up the premiere date for a day earlier than the FOX show. Once again, proving that at any given time in Hollywood there is only a few ideas floating about and everybody is using them.

Prime Picks

The King of Queens (CBS): Repeats. Two episodes from the last season replays with Carrie wondering why they can’t afford a second home like Deacon and Kelly and then in the second one, Doug stops eating meat and it is driving Carrie crazy.

Criminal Minds (CBS): Repeat. Someone is about to auction a boy online and the team races to find the boy before this takes place.

Traveler (ABC): New. I thought I had missed last week’s episode do to a local fireworks special here in Seattle. But, ABC didn’t actually show a new episode like was listed in the TV show listing for the night, but actually replayed the second episode. So, I guess I didn’t miss anything after all. So, tonight Jay and Kim finally reunite and want to take the evidence they have found to the FBI, but Tyler doesn’t want them to, because they have found FBI ties to the bombing.

Last Comic Standing (NBC): New. The scouts head to Tempe, AZ for a round of auditions.

Cable Choices

Good Eats (Food Network): Repeat. Tonight’s replays is “Fry Hard 2: The Chicken (Fried).” I love how all there episode titles are plays off of movies with a food twist. Plays again later.
Samantha Brown: Passport to Latin America (Travel Channel): New. Machu Piccu, Peru is visited.

Tyler Perry’s House of Payne (TBS): New. Two more episodes play tonight with Curtis gets advice from his buddies after his date with Ella doesn’t go very well and in the second, the firehouse is trying to come up with fundraising ideas to help a local charity.

Rescue Me (FX): New. Everyone finds out about Jerry’s decision and Tommy has a little trouble with the ladies that causes him to question his manhood. Runs 66 minutes and plays twice.
