Prime Pick

CSI: NY (CBS): Repeat. The murder of a pigeon trainer and a death at a girl’s birthday party, in “Sweet 16” from season three.

The Unit (NBC): Repeat. An embassy is under attack and the team tries to get them out safely, in “Every Step You Take” from this past season.

Eli Stone (ABC): Repeat. The first season begins replaying tonight with the “Pilot” episode. I really liked this show and recommend checking it out if you missed it the first time around. If you’re unsure about it after the first couple of episodes, which people seemed to have been the first time around, give it a shot. Because, it really gets good in the second half of the season, but you need the build up for them to payoff. Besides, what else do you have to watch on a Saturday night? In the first episode, Eli begins having visions that lead him to change his pursuits in both life and work.

Solid Selection

U.S. Olympic Track Trials (NBC): Sports Special. See the U.S hopefuls in track & field.

Law & Order (NBC): Repeat. The deaths of three roommates are probed, in “Political Animal” from this past season.
