Prime Picks

American Idol (FOX): New. Dolly Parton is the coach this week, as the nine remaining singers will be singing her songs.

Reaper (The CW): Repeat. An untalented man is thinking of selling his soul to the devil and Sam tries to convince him not to do it.

CSI: Miami (CBS): New. The conclusion from last night’s episode has Horatio trying to deal once and for all with his past, while the team races against the clock to save Calleigh after she is kidnapped.

Solid Selections

NCIS (CBS): Repeat. The team hunts down a trained survivalist that is wanted in connection with a cold case that has been reopened, in “Lost & Found” from earlier this season. New episodes return beginning next week.

Dancing With Hell’s Big Loser (ABCFOXSN) New. The four, second level, selections in this hour after the Reaper repeat are less than solid. Really, can’t wait for the return of Shark in four weeks, so at least there will be something decent to watch in this timeslot.

Cable Choices
