Download White Collar Episode via Amazon Video On DemandOn cable tonight, A&E has the series premiere of Paranormal Cops, Bravo has the third season premiere of Millionaire Matchaker, truTV has a Disorder in the Court special, and USA has the return of White Collar.

Prime Picks

Scrubs (ABC): Repeat. The “Our New Girl-Bro” episode from earlier this season replays, where Turk is trying to find a new work friend to replace J.D.
Better Off Ted (ABC): Repeat. In “The Lawyer, the Lemur and the Little Listener” from earlier this season, Veronica gets Rose to tell her about what she has learned from other executives’ kids about their parents and what is happening at Veridian.

Scrubs (ABC): New. Dr. Cox begins punishing everybody until the person who cheated on an exam comes clean.
Better Off Ted (ABC): New. Ted is attempting to use a new translation device built by Veridian to romance a beautiful German executive that speaks no English.

White Collar (USA): New. Neal is sent undercover as a stockbroker looking for some quick cash in a pump and dump stock scheme. Peter has to end up going undercover as well. Plays again later. This is another fun episode, which both gives us a new case and wraps up the fall finale cliffhanger. I think it does a great job with both. I really don’t want to say more than that, but if you like this show, you’ll be plenty pleased with this episode. The first seven episodes of the season replay earlier in the day.

Solid Selections

NCIS (CBS): Repeat. In “The Inside Man” from earlier this season, the team is looking into the death of a blogger that accused and the death of a lieutenant that the blogger said was a murder cover-up.

Human Target (FOX): Repeat. The series premiere episode from Sunday replays, where the woman responsible for engineering California’s first bullet train thinks someone is trying to kill her and hires Chance to protect her during the trains maiden voyage. The next new episode of the series will play after American Idol tomorrow, before taking its regular pre-Idol timeslot the following week. The cast is superb with Mark Valley (Boston Legal, Keen Eddie) as Christopher Chance, Chi McBride (Pushing Daisies, Boston Public), and Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen). I really like this show and am looking forward to tomorrow’s episode.

Southland (TNT): Repeat. Officers come across a baby and search for the mother. Bryant and Moretta are trying to get a juvenile into protective custody. Plays again later.

Everything in the prize pack looks awesome, but I guess what I want most is the T shirt and the flask. I love T shirts in general, and I”ve never owned a flask.

As for what I love about the show, it’s mostly Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay. They have a great chemistry on screen together. Also, I’ve got a thing for handsome guys in stylish suits and fedoras. And Tim DeKay was the special guest on my favorite episode of the ’90s show “Cupid” (the one that starred Jeremy Piven). He was great in that, and he’s great in this!
