New & Notes

Download Law & Order: Criminal Intent Episodes at Amazon UnboxIn game show news, CBS announced that The Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular would be back for four more installments that will leadoff Wednesday nights starting April 30th.

Prime Picks

Law & Order: Criminal Intent (NBC): Repeat. The death of a patient and the murder of a Park Avenue dentist seem to be connected in the episodes “Smile” from earlier this season.

Criminal Minds (CBS): Repeat. Recent series of murders shows similarities with a case from 20 years ago in rural Virginia, in the episode “Birthright” from earlier this season.

Men in Trees (ABC): New. Marin and Jack are back from New York and she finds out that Cash is worse than he let on and needs a kidney transplant. Ben’s new hockey player finally arrives in town. This is pretty much the only thing really worth watching tonight.

Solid Selections

America’s Survivor Swap Moment (The CWSABFOX): New. This hour of TV really sucks right now, as there is nothing solid about any of these secondary selections.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent (NBC): Repeat. A beautiful blonde is strangled in “Lonelyville” and Logan and Falacci are on the case, in an episode from earlier this season.

CSI: NY (CBS): Repeat. The team has to navigate a virtual world on the Internet to find the killer of a woman in real life, in the episode “Down the Rabbit Hole” from earlier this season.

Cable Choices

Good Eats (Food Network): Repeats. Alton gets a little toasted and then lets you in on the “Waffle Truth.” Both episodes play again later.

Ultimate Recipe Showdown (Food Network): Repeat. The “Cookies” episode from Sunday replays. The three categories are Chocolate Cookie, Spice Cookie and Desert Cookie Bar. The winner goes home with $25,000. Plays again later. There were some really good-looking cookies, but I think I really would have liked to try the Chocolate Cherry Chunk cookies.

Tyler Perry’s House of Payne (TBS): New. Two new episodes play tonight, with the first providing “A Shock to the System” and the second gets into some “Compromising Situations.” Two repeat episodes replay right before.

Other Options

  • American Idol (FOX): New. Someone gets sent home after an hour of filler.
  • Law & Order (NBC): Repeat. When a young boy and girl are found dead near a park, the detectives find it hard to get anyone to talk, because the boy had been the target and the girl was accidental, in the episode “Driven” from earlier this season.
