News & Notes
Tonight, FOX has the post-strike return of House.
Over on cable, ABC Family has the spring premiere of Wildfire, BBC America has the season finale of Top Gear, VH1 has the third season finale of The Flavor of Love, and WE has the first season finale of High School Confidential.
Everything that is going to be back post-strike will be back this week. So, I thought since this was the first week in a while that everything is new, it would fun to add an extra bit of info to this week’s Tonight on the Tube posts. Bold Italic Items signify what shows the TVaholic is watching, or recording, or watching on demand, etc., tonight. Let me know what you will be watching tonight in the comments.
