Early today, TNT is replaying this past Monday’s episode of The Closer and USA has this past Thursday’s episodes of Burn Notice and Royal Pains.
Kings (NBC): Series Finale. Jack is preparing to take the thrown, but everyone is surprised to see that Silas isn’t dead. This is not a real season finale, it’s the first season finale, but since there won’t be a second, this is what you get. Such a good show that just was too hard to describe and get people to take a chance on watching.
The Bill Engvall Show (TBS): New. Bill wants to know what Susan says about him when talking with the girls. A repeat of “Pineblock Derby” follows. Both play again later.
Dirty Sexy Money (ABC): New. Nick, Brian and Karen are on a road trip and Simon is suspicious of Jeremy and tells Nola.
Primeval (BBC America): Series Finale. I hear it ends with a cliffhanger, cause this was not intended to be the series finale, just a season finale. Plays again later.
Being Human (BBC America): Series Premiere. This is an interesting show about a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost that try to live normal lives, but of course it doesn’t always work out well. Plays again later. They set up some interesting dynamics between the three main characters. I’ve seen about half the episode and it is pretty good. I am looking forward to seeing how this episode comes to a close.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): Repeat. In “Baggage” from this past season, the detectives end up investigating a serial killer.
- Castle (ABC): Repeat. In “Always Buy Retail” from this past season, Beckett and Castle investigate after a ritualistic killing.
- FOX has MLB action with FOX Saturday Baseball.
- Versus has Stage 20 of the Tour de France that plays multiple times throughout the day.
- Army Wives (Lifetime): Repeat. Last Sunday’s episode, “Onward Christian Soldier,” replays.
- Drop Dead Diva (Lifetime): Repeat. Last Sunday’s episode, “The “F” Word,” replays.
- Law & Order: Criminal Intent (USA): Repeat. Last Sunday’s episode, “All In,” replays.
