Prime Picks

Smallville (The CW): New. Clark gets a look at what things would have been like had he never arrived on Earth. Seems like a storyline for a December episode.

Lost (ABC): New. Jack falls ill and it is up to Juliet and Kate to keep him alive. Sawyer, Miles, Claire and Aaron run into some trouble on the way back to the beach.

Solid Selections

My Name Is Earl (NBC): New. Earl now out of his coma is looking for Billie. Meanwhile, Darnell and Joy end up moving into the Crab Shack.
Scrubs (NBC): New. Dr. Cox has a new title, but doesn’t like all the problems that come with it.

The Office (NBC): New. Stanley goes off on Michael and Michael decides that Stanley needs an attitude adjustment. Pam has to deal with something unexpected after spending the night at Jim’s place. Runs 31 minutes.
30 Rock (NBC): New. Jack gets demoted and wonders what his future is going to be. Liz’s ex Floyd needs a place to stay when his flight gets delayed.

Other Options

  • CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS): New. Multiple deaths are investigated, where the victims all have green blood. Gary Dourdan, who plays Warrick Brown, was arrested on drug charges this week. Last week it was announced that he was let go from the show for unspecified reasons, maybe this was it.
  • Supernatural (The CW): New. Dean might have a way out of his deal, after he talks to his dead father on the phone. Sam doesn’t believe it is the case and thinks Dean needs to be careful. Watch a clip of the call below. (RSS and eMail Subscribers may need to click to the site to view the video)
