Sports Notes

  • ESPN has Monday Night Baseball with the New York Yankees at the Minnesota Twins.
  • ESPN2 has Arena Football action.

Late Night

  • Burn Notice (USA): Repeat. Episode seven, “Broken Rules,” replays. Episode eight plays late night Thursday.
  • In Plain Sight (USA): Repeat. Last night’s series premiere episode replays. Have to say, it was a bit disappointing. It has potential, but will have to watch a couple more episodes to see if things smooth out any. The first episode doesn’t flow very well. It is very similar to Burn Notice in tone, but not nearly as good. Although, there were a few scenes and lines that made me laugh out loud. So, here’s hoping it comes together in future episodes.

TV Marathons

Sci Fi has eight episodes of Stargate SG-1 early.
TNT has five episodes of Law & Order tonight.
VH1 has eight hours of The Bachelor season two episodes.
