News & Notes

Download Law & Order Episodes at Amazon UnboxTonight, The CW has the season finale of America’s Next Top Model and FOX has the first season finale of Back to You and the second season finale of ‘Til Death.

Over on cable, BBC America has the third season finale of MI-5, CMT has the series premiere of Chopper Challenge, and TV Land has the season finale of The Big 4-0.

Note to eMail Subscribers: Hopefully this gets through to you today. For some reason the Feedburner.com service I use to send out the sites content via email didn’t send out any emails yesterday morning. This is highly annoying; especially when you expect it daily and new subscribers that were expecting to be able to download the new Summer Printable Schedule yesterday were not able to do so.

Prime Picks

‘Til Death (FOX): Season Finale. Eddie tries to one-up his wife after she gets him a nice gift. Has been picked up for a third season. Not sure why, but it has.
Back to You (FOX): Season Finale. Chuck and Kelly are trying to figure out the best way to make public the news the Chuck is Kelly’s daughter’s father. Unfortunately, FOX has canceled this. There is a small chance that it could end up on CBS.

Criminal Minds (CBS): New. A suspected serial killer wakes up from a four-year coma, but has no memory of his past crimes. Next week is the season finale.

CSI: NY (CBS): New. The killer cab driver may have been found dead, but the team must determine if he is the right person. Next week is the season finale.

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. Blackmail and money laundering play into a case being investigated. Really enjoyed last week’s episode.

Cable Choices

Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives (Food Network): Repeats. Guy finds some “Off the Hook Specials” and then takes “The New Jersey Diner Tour.” Both episodes play again later.

MI-5 (BBC America): New. The season finale from the third season, “The Suffering of Strangers” 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.

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

Other Options

  • American Idol (FOX): New. Find out who will be in the final two and sing in the season finale next week.
  • Boston Legal (ABC): New. Jerry’s ex gets arrested for prostitution. Denny gets asked to run for president. Next week is the season finale. The show has been picked up for another season and will move to Monday nights, but this will be its final season.
