Greek (ABC Family): Season Finale. It’s Spring Break and everyone has headed to the beach. Rusty decides to cut his vacation short. Plays again late night tomorrow. This episode will cap off a 10-episode marathon today. Greek will return for a second season this fall.

- In Plain Sight (USA): Repeat. Last night’s episode, “Hoosier Daddy,” replays. Liked this episode a little better than the “Pilot.” So far, it falls flat when it deals with her family. Give it a couple more episodes before I figure out whether I am going to like it or not. There has at least been one line in each episode that had me laughing out loud, so that is always good. Cause, who doesn’t want some tuna casserole with Velveeta and potato chip crust.
