Prime Picks

The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): New. Mr. Harris returns just as Christine is falling for Max.
Gary Unmarried (ABC): New. Gary is trying to decide whether losing his job is worth dating his boss.

Modern Family (ABC): New. Manny’s mom gives his date a makeover. Mitchell puts an idea in Jay’s head.
Cougar Town (ABC): New. Jules turn to her ex after her breakup with Jeff. Travis’ plans don’t go the way he wanted. Runs 31 minutes.

Leverage (TNT): New. The team sets out to save the bar Nate lives above from a loan shark. Plays again later. This is another really fun episode. Love how you know you are missing part of the story and then get let in on them at the end. Plus, there is one development in the episode that could change things for a member of this group and affect the others as we finish out the season. Once again, Jeri Ryan makes a great temporary addition to the show. How do you feel about her on the show?

Solid Selections

Life Unexpected (The CW): Repeat. The “Pilot” episode from Monday replays. If you missed the premiere of one of the best family dramedies to come along in a while, then here is your chance to get on board. I’ve seen it three times already. Or, if you watched it already, what did you think about it?

Human Target (FOX): New. Chance is trying to protect a client he has never met from an assassin on a plane and gets Winston to help with the case in the field. Did you watch the “Pilot” episode on Sunday or last night? What do you think of this show? Will you be watching again?

Being Erica (SOAPnet): Season Premiere. The second season begins with Erica quitting her therapy and Dr. Naadiah sending her back to meet a troubled Dr. Tom. Been looking forward to the return of this show down here in the States.

Other Options

  • Criminal Minds (CBS): New. The team is off to Wyoming to investigate a string of teen suicides in a small town.
  • CSI: NY (CBS): New. The CSIs investigate when the quarterback of a women’s football team is found murdered.
  • nip/tuck (FX): New. A patient that attempted suicide wants cosmetic surgery. Runs 61 minutes. Plays twice.
  • Throwdown With Bobby Flay (Food Network): New. Mmm! It’s a Belgian waffle throwdown. A repeat episode follows. Both play again later.
