News & Notes

Download Law & Order Episodes at Amazon UnboxOn cable tonight, Discovery Channel has the series premiere of Factory Made and FX has the first season finale of DEA.

Wednesday nights have become pretty weak. I guess it gives you a night to catch up with all the stuff from Monday that you haven’t watched yet, before you try to take in all the good stuff on Thursday nights.

Prime Picks

‘Til Death (FOX): New. Eddie is jealous of how laid back his friend’s marriage is. Next week is the season finale.
Back to You (FOX): New. Chuck and Kelly try to talk with the new station manager after she makes some really unpopular decisions. Next week is the season finale.

Criminal Minds (CBS): New. Hotch and Rossi are trying to figure out is a woman that killed her husband can claim battered wife syndrome. Meanwhile, the rest of the team is trying to stop a stalker from getting at the person he is stalking.

CSI: NY (CBS): New. Everything has been put on the backburner in order to focus on stopping the “Taxi Cab Killer.”

Solid Selections

The Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular (CBS): New. The classic game show with new host Drew Carey gives contestants a chance to win a million dollars at some point during the show.

Farmer Wants a Wife (The CW): New. This is pretty bad, but I would still rather watch this than Supernanny, Deal or No Deal, or the American Idol results show, not that I will be watching.

Law & Order (NBC): New. Because of a strike, there is a shortage of defense attorneys, which ends up pitting Rubirosa against Cutter on a case with her defending and he prosecuting.

Cable Choices

Good Eats (Food Network): Repeats. Alton whips up “A Bowl of Onion” soup and then tries to fix some leeks. Both episodes play again later.

MI-5 (BBC America): New. Episode nine from the third season, “Frequently Asked Questions” plays. These episodes are new to BBC America, but you may have seen them on A&E at some point. The show is known as Spooks in the UK and the few episodes I have seen of the first couple of seasons were really good. Next week is the season finale.

Tyler Perry’s House of Payne (TBS): Repeats. The second two of four repeat episodes replay tonight in this timeslot.
