Other Options

  • Food Detectives (Food Network): New. More food myths are looked into. Plays again later.

Calvin and Rusty continue to try and maintain a friendship while competing for their respective houses. Casey is trying to figure out what to do with Rebecca. Plays twice and again later.

  • World’s Funniest Commercials 2008 (TBS): Premiere. I got a chance to see this already and there are some pretty funny commercials, but with Eureka and the return of Greek in the same timeslot tonight, I can’t really recommend it. But, it does play again later and again this Saturday night, either of which would be a good time to check it out.
