Download My Name Is Earl Episodes at Amazon UnboxTonight is the season finale of So You Think You Can Dance on FOX. Thursday nights this fall looks to be a night with few changes. With CBS returning Without a Trace to the third hour of primetime slot, even the changes aren’t that much of a change. That includes the rearranging of 30 Rock, The Office and Scrubs. The only new stuff is Dirty Sexy Money on ABC in the third hour timeslot and Don’t Forget the Lyrics, which has done well enough for FOX over the last few weeks that they are adding it to the Fall Schedule. What Thursday night show are you looking most forward to?

Cable Choices

Who Wants to Be a Superhero? (Sci Fi): Repeat. Last week’s episode where the heroes have to face Dr. Dark replays. Does anybody else think that Dr. Dark will turn out to be Stan Lee? On a recent conference call with Stan Lee and executive producer Andy Scheer, it was mentioned that Stan was going to get to be more than just be a talking head on a screen this season. Then I watched this episode and that thought popped into my head. What do you think?
