News & Notes

Download Mental Episodes via Amazon Video On DemandOn cable tonight, Discovery Channel has the second season finale of The Alaska Experiment and Sundance has the first season finale of Eco Trip.

In late night, IFC has the series premieres of Food Party and Wrong Door.

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

Note: It was time to change the Tonight on the Tube posts up a bit. Cable and network best bets will be combined in the Prime Picks and Solid Selections sections and the separate Cable Choices section has been dropped. The two sections will continue to be made up of the best bet for each hour of primetime, but since during the summer, most of the good stuff is on cable, it just seemed weird for those shows not to be part of the Prime Picks section. The Other Options section will continue to be a combined listing of cable and network shows that play during primetime, which also might be worth checking out, even though there isn’t one as part of today’s post.

Prime Pick

NBA Finals (ABC) Game 3. The Los Angeles Lakers head into Orlando to take on the Magic up 2-0 in the series. Tip off is just after 9:00 p.m. ET. There is a pregame show and a Jimmy Kimmel Live special that play either before the pregame show or after the game depending on your time zone.
