Prime Picks

Scrubs (ABC): New. The interns deal with their first night of full moon wierdness.
Better Off Ted (ABC): New. This is the episode that I thought was going to play last week. Thanks for pulling the switcheroo ABC. Anyway, this episode has Ted bringing his daughter to work, which leads to some very funny situations. This is my favorite episode of the three so far.

Lost (ABC): New. Kate takes the lead to try and save Ben, when Jack refuses to help. Runs 62 minutes.

Life on Mars (ABC): Series Finale. Sam gets a mysterious call that may give him the way back to 2008. Starts two minutes after the hour and runs 58 minutes. Sad to see this one go, but at least we get a true series finale.

Solid Selections

Lie to Me (FOX): New. Lightman is investigating the case of two women that committed suicide and becomes consumed it.

    Tom, I will be sorry to see Life on Mars go as well, but don’t agree that there is nothing else worth watching on ABC, like Better Off Ted and Lost to name two. Although, they sure have killed off a lot of really good shows this season, Eli Stone, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and now Life on Mars.
