    Ron, It is definitely the best night of TV right now. Given the number of quality shows, it might just be an all-timer. The DVR does come in quite handy. Tonight, I will be watching Smallville and Grey’s Anatomy, while recording the two-hour comedy block on NBC. Then, I will be recording Lost and Without a Trace, as I have to head off to work. And, will catch CSI via Comcast On Demand. Plus, I will probably be checking in on the NBA games from time to time.
