News & Notes

Tyler Perry's House of Payne Vol. 2 on DVDTonight, CBS has the Wednesday edition premiere of Big Brother and NBC has the first season finale of Celebrity Circus.

Over on cable, A&E has the fifth season premiere of Dog the Bounty Hunter, Bravo has the fifth season premiere of Project Runway, CMT has the first season finale of Chopper Challenge, History Channel has a Batman Unmasked: The Psychology of the Dark Knight special, HBO has a Costas NOW special, MTV has the fifth season premiere of Run’s House, and TV Land has the series premiere of Family Foreman.

Wednesday has become the worst day of the week for TV, as there is nothing that really interests me on network or cable. But, a TVaholic needs to be watching something, so Wednesdays have become the day to catch up with stuff off the DVR that I had to record while I went to work, like last night’s The Cleaner. Hey, even Saturdays have Robin Hood right now and I have a few of those to watch as well. Are you watching anything on Wednesdays?

Prime Picks

So You Think You Can Dance (FOX): New. There is not a thing in the first hour of primetime tonight that interests me in the least. The closest would be watching the first hour of SYTCD.

Criminal Minds (CBS): Repeat. The team is trying to track an arsonist through his affiliation with a group known for using fire to get its point across, in “Ashes and Dust” from season two.

CSI: NY (CBS): Repeat. A guy confesses to a murder that hasn’t happened yet, as he dies himself, in “Time’s Up” from this past season.

Solid Selections

So You Think You Can Dance (FOX): New. The Top 10 performs and the audience votes. Runs two hours.

Celebrity Circus (NBC): Season Finale. Celebrities perform death-defying stunts.

Cable Choices

Good Eats (Food Network): Repeats. Alton tries to plays a “Shell Game” in the kitchen and then cooks with frozen crab. Both episodes play again later.

Tyler Perry’s House of Payne (TBS): New. Two repeat episodes and then two new episodes play for a total of two hours of Payne.
