Sports Notes

  • ESPN has Wednesday Night Baseball with the Tampa Bay Rays at the Boston Red Sox.
  • ESPN2 has Wednesday Night Fights with a light heavyweight bout scheduled for 10 rounds.
  • NBC has NHL playoff action with the Detroit Red Wings at the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Late Night

  • In Plain Sight (USA): Repeat. Sunday 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.

A&E has five episodes of CSI: Miami tonight.
Bravo has 14 episodes of Top Chef.
Oxygen has 14 episodes of Tori & Dean: Inn Love.
