Prime Picks

90210 (The CW): Repeat. Tuesday’s two-hour series premiere replays. I liked some things about it, like the way they weaved in the past characters, but not so much some of the new ones. Also, a lot of it was way too predictable. Overall though, I actually enjoyed it and will be watching again next week.

ABC, CBS, and NBC all have Republican National Convention coverage tonight, but it plays depending on your time zone. Like here on the west coast they are all on at 7:00 p.m. PT.

Solid Selections

Ugly Betty (ABC): Repeat. Betty throws Charlie a baby shower hoping to become friends and Daniel is coming apart at the seams after his breakup with Renee, in “Betty’s Baby Bump” from this past season.

Grey’s Anatomy (ABC): Repeat. Nurses are upset with Dr. Sloan and the hospital begins a date-and-tell policy and Cristina must face her feelings for Burke, in “The Becoming” from this past season.

ABC, CBS, and NBC all have Republican National Convention coverage tonight, but it plays depending on your time zone. Like here on the west coast they are all on at 7:00 p.m. PT.

Cable Choices

Friends (Food Network): Repeats. It is “The One With Rachel’s Phone Number” and then “The One With Christmas in Tulsa,” with guest star Selma Blair of the Hellboy movies and the upcoming Kath and Kim on NBC.
