Tonight on the Tube: Torchwood, Mental & Eureka

News & Notes

Download Eureka Episodes via Amazon Video On DemandTonight, NBC has the series finale of Chopped.

Over on cable, BBC America has the finale of Torchwood: Children of Earth, and Travel Channel has the second summer season finale of Ghost Adventures.

In late night, Comedy Central has a Funny People: Live special.

Comic Con is quite the experience. The highlight of yesterday was The Middleman table read of the never filmed 13th episode. Also, was at a Battlestar Galactica Retrospective panel and in the press rooms for Psych and Burn Notice. The Psych press room was great, but things got weird in the Burn Notice one. Will have more later. On tap today are panels and press rooms for Stargate Universe, The Big Bang Theory, and Eureka. So, if you’ve got questions about any of those, send them my way.
