News & Notes

Get Harper's Island Episodes via Amazon Video On DemandTonight, CBS has the series finale, or last filmed episode, of Worst Week.

Over on cable, CMT has the fourth season finale of Nanny 911 and the first season finale of World’s Strictest Parents, GSN has The Game Show Awards special, Hallmark Channel has the TV movie premiere of Come Dance at My Wedding, and WE has the first season finale of I Want to Save Your Life.

During the day, USA is replaying the series premiere episode of Royal Pains three times.

Giveaways: Two Boston Legal – Season Five DVD sets and two Prison Break – Season Four – The Final Season DVD sets.

Note: As I mentioned the last couple days, it was time to change up Tonight on the Tube just a bit. So, cable and network programming has been combined in the Prime Picks and Solid Selections sections. Each of the section will continue to be made up of the best bet for each hour of primetime, but sense most of the good stuff is on cable during the summer, it just looks strange for those shows not to be part of the Prime Picks section.

Prime Picks
