Tonight on the Tube: The Unit, Side Order of Life, State of Mind & Burn Notice

The Unit - Season 2 on DVDSaturday is always a great day to catch up on things that you TiVo’d over the last week and haven’t been able to watch. For me it will be, Mad Men and Burn Notice from Thursday night. Tomorrow you will find the return of Dinner: Impossible on Food Network and the premiere of the eight part nine hour miniseries The Kill Point on Spike. For more information on these shows or to see what else is still yet to come this summer, check out the Guide to Summer TV Shows – 2007.
