News & Notes

Smallville Season 7 Companion BookTonight, NBC has the two-hour season finale of The Celebrity Apprentice.

Over on cable, MTV has the first season finale of Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew and Spike TV has the third season finale of Pros vs. Joes.

In returning show news, CBS’ CSI and Without a Trace will be back with new episodes as of next week, April 3rd, as will NBC’s My Name Is Earl.

Prime Picks

Smallville (The CW): New. Kara helps Clark learn how to fly to help in his efforts to defeat Brainiac. This is the last pre-strike episode, look for new episodes beginning April 17th.

Lost (ABC): Repeat. The first episodes of this season, “The Beginning of the End,” replays with the onscreen enhancements to try and help you keep up with what is happening on screen, but mostly they just get in your way and you miss stuff on screen while reading them. Will return with new episodes on April 24th.

Eli Stone (ABC): New. A teenage girl gets expelled from school for playing a George Michael song during an abstinence assembly and the singer wants to hire Eli on her behalf.

Solid Selections

NCAA Championship Tournament (CBS): Sweet 16 – Day 1. North Carolina and UCLA will be in action tonight.

Cable Choices

Friends (TBS): Repeats. In “The One With Joey’s Bag,” Phoebe meets her father for the first time. Then, in “The One Where Everybody Finds Out,” the ones who know try to mess with the supposedly secret couple.

Iron Chef America (Food Network): Repeat. Sunday’s episode with Iron Chef Morimoto being challenge by chef Tyson Cole replays. Plays again later.

Ace of Cakes (Food Network): New. The gang is busily making a cake for the opening of the musical Avenue Q. Plays again later. A repeat episode

Other Options

  • Miss Guided (ABC): New. Two new episodes play. In the first, Becky tries her hand at being rebellious for the first time and it doesn’t go well. In the second, Becky has to plan a party for the most hated teacher at the school. Once you get used to the flow of the show and the talking into the cameras, it becomes a lot of fun and is very funny at times.

Sports Notes

  • CBS has NCAA Championship Tournament action.
  • TNT has a NBA doubleheader with the Dallas Mavericks at the Denver Nuggets followed by the Portland Trail Blazers at the Golden State Warriors. The Mavericks and Warriors are trying to keep the last two playoff-spots, while the Nuggets and the Blazers would like to take them, although the Blazers are a long shot at six games out with only 10 left to play.

TV Marathons

Bravo has eight episodes of Make Me a Supermodel.
MTV has 11 episodes of America’s Next Top Model.
Oxygen has 11 episodes of Grace Under Fire.
Sci Fi has the last eight episodes from season one of The X-Files.
