Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): New. Abby is trying to protect a dog that has been accused of a fatal mauling. Meanwhile, Gibbs is trying to figure out the director’s secret.

Reaper (The CW): Repeat. Sam freaks when he finds out that an escapee is out to kill Andi. New episodes return next week.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): New. Benson goes undercover at a women’s prison to investigate a case.

Solid Selections

American Idol (FOX): New. The Top 7 perform songs of Mariah Carey and she is along to help them out. I find this week interesting. Picking a song that is famous for being sung by someone with a big voice tends to be a problem for many singers. This week they will all be in the same boat.

Dancing With Hell’s Big Loser (ABCFOXSN): New. Again, as with last few weeks, it continues to be sad when a Reaper repeat is the best thing in the time period. Only two weeks left until the return of Shark and one week until new Reaper episodes.

Boston Legal (ABC): New. Shirley asks Alan to represent her, as she wants to end her sick father’s suffering.

Big Break: Ka’anapali (Golf Channel): Season Premiere. Twelve ladies compete to win a spot in an LPGA tournament this year, free entry into every Futures Tour event next season and a BMW Z4. Not to mention, they get to play golf in Hawaii until they lose a golf skills competition. Let the games begin. It replays multiple times throughout the week.

The Riches (FX): New. Dahlia is finding her double life hard to keep up. Wayne is visited at work by a private investigator. Cael runs into other Travellers while out on the road.
