Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): New. A killer is after Palmer and only he knows what they look like. Next week is the two-hour season finale.

Shark (CBS): An aspiring singer is murdered and Booth and…Oh wait…that was last night on Bones. Tonight, Stark must determine who wanted an aspiring singer dead and it looks like there are a lot of suspects. Next week is the season finale, or possibly the series finale. We will find out this week.

Women’s Murder Club (ABC): Series Finale. It looks like ABC has killed this show off. Hopefully, we will at least capture the Kiss Me Not Killer tonight before things come to an end. What do you think about this cancellation?

Solid Selections

American Idol (FOX): New. The Top 3 performs three songs tonight. They get to choose one, a judge gets to choose one, and the producers get to choose one.

Reaper (The CW): New. Sam tries to figure out why a soul that he recently returned to hell has reappeared. Next week is the season finale. If you are a fan of this show, then you will be happy to know that this show will be back for a second season, but it won’t return until midseason.

Law & Order: Special Victims (NBC): Season Finale. Det. Lake escapes the hospital and takes a witness to an old case hostage.

Cable Choices

Diner, Drive-Ins & Dives (Food Network): Repeats. Guy checks out some “Family Owned” joints and then some place that are “Open 24/7.” Both episodes play again later.

Big Break: Ka’anapali (Golf Channel): New. One of the favorites looks to have a weakness.

Very sad about Women’s murder club, a very good show. It had it’s weak moments, but is more deserving than Eli Stone certainly. The cliffhanger was stupid, they knew the show was likely doomed. At least they closed out the main story.

Ron, We definitely disagree on Eli Stone, but couldn’t agree more on how everything seemed to wrap up nicely on Women’s Murder Club and then they throw in a problem with her father and fade to black.
