Prime Picks

Scrubs (ABC): New. J.D. is contemplating a new job. Turk takes on the duties of chief of surgery.
Better Off Ted (ABC): Season Finale. A company survey finds that the employees are miserable, so Veronica tries boosting morale. The show hasn’t done all that well ratings-wise, but I really hope ABC see fit to give this show a chance to build an audience by bringing it back for next season. It really is a very good show and definitely worth watching.

Solid Selections

NCIS (CBS): New. This is part two of the two-part spinoff episode, which has Gibbs and McGee in Los Angeles helping investigate the murder of a Marine that has turned into trying to stop and arms deal. Guest stars LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell. Really liked Louise Lombard (CSI) as the leader of the undercover unit. They could layoff the big computer screen a tad, as the, hey look at our cool tech, got a little annoying. But, overall I like the direction of the spinoff and the setting it in an different type of team under the NCIS umbrella.
