Tonight on the Tube: Chuck, Prison Break, Samantha Who? & Monday Night Football

News & Notes

Get Chuck Episodes via Amazon Video On DemandTonight, MyNetworkTV has the first season finale of Magic’s Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed.

Listen to episode nine, “TV Leftovers,” of the TV times Three podcast, where we talked about some recent cancellations and other news, reruns, who from TV we’d like to invite over for Thanksgiving dinner, and our primetime wrap-up included thoughts on last week’s Desperate Housewives, Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Life, Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I know I’m biased, but I think it is our best episode yet. At least we had a lot of fun recording it. And, as always, we’d really like to hear your thoughts on the show.
