Prime Picks

American Idol (FOX): New. The top 12 perform and one goes home tomorrow. They keep saying how this is the most talented group ever, but I just haven’t seen it yet. For me, there has yet to be a defining moment for any of these finalists during the last three weeks. Runs two hours. Do you have a favorite left in the competition?

Jericho (CBS): New. Jake and the rangers become entangled in a fight for survival with Goetz and his Ravenwood boys. Really liking this season, but too bad that the ratings haven’t really followed so much. Not sure why people wouldn’t check this out with a repeat Law & Order: SVU and a Primetime special as competition.

Solid Selections

NCIS (CBS): Repeat. A Muslim Marine is found dead near a mosque and Ducky is refusing to do an autopsy at the family’s request.

One Tree Hill (The CW): New. Lucas and Lindsey are just a day away from getting married and decide to see if they can fix Nathan and Haley’s marriage before they do. Brooke sets Peyton up with an old boyfriend.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): Repeat. A young girls death seems to have a connection the world of ultimate fighting.

Cable Choices

Good Eats (Food Network): Repeats. Alton works with cabbage and then some corned beef. Both episodes play again later.

Throwdown With Bobby Flay (Food Network): Repeats. First up he competes in an “Eggplant Parmesan” battle and then a “BBQ Ribs” battle. Both play again later.

The Office (TBS): Repeats. First up is “Women’s Appreciation” from season three, where Dwight and Andy are trying to find the person who flashed Phyllis on her way into work. Then the “Pilot” episode replays, where you can see how it all began.

Other Options

  • Bones (TNT): Repeat. Season one continues replaying with episode seven, “The Man on Death Row.” The defendant in Booth’s first case is about to be executed and he and Brennan are racing the clock to tie up any loose ends.
