Tonight on the Tube: Super Bowl XLII, House & TV Marathons

News & Notes

Super Bowl XLII Champions DVDTonight, The CW has the season finale of Life is Wild.

Not a football fan? Need something else to watch? Well, check out the list of TV marathons below. There is something for just about anybody. The TVaholic would recommend The Closer on TNT, MythBusters on Discovery Channel, or Scooby-Doo on Cartoon Network.

Prime Picks

Super Bowl XLII (FOX): New England Patriots vs. New York Giants. Will the Patriots go 19-0 or will the Giants complete the upset. The Giants continue to surprise, but the TVaholic has the feeling we are in for a Patriots blowout. Really hope that I am wrong, as a Super Bowl that is close like the last game of the season between these two teams would be outstanding. So, hopefully there will at least be some good commercials. Broadcast starts at 6:00 p.m. ET. Leading up to the game is a four-hour pre-game show.
House (FOX): New. The post Super Bowl slot has been handed off to Dr. House and his team. In this special episode, House has to diagnose a woman stricken by a mysterious illness. But, it will have to be done via videophone, as she is in a research lab in Antarctica. Also, House is surprised by who Wilson has been dating. Will start after the post-game show. Mira Sorvino guest-stars, check out an interview with her over at theTVaddict.
