Prime Picks

Modern Family (ABC): Repeat. The “The Incident” episode from earlier this season replays with guest star Shelley Long. This is one of the best episodes of the series thus far. May not play in this timeslot in your time zone, but does play tonight.
Gary Unmarried (CBS): Repeat. In “Gary Has a Dream” from earlier this season, Gary sets out to pursue his dream of being a sports radio host to set a good example for his son.

Life Unexpected (The CW): Repeat. Monday’s episode, “Home Inspected,” replays, where Baze and Kate are trying to ready their places to be approved for Lux to live at their places. You should really check out this show if you haven’t already.

Psych (USA): Winter Premiere. When an Army private looks to have committed suicide, Shawn disagrees and thinks it was murder. He also thinks that Juliet’s brother, guest star WWE’s John Cena, may be somehow involved. Robert Partick (The Unit) and Rachel Lee Cook (She’s All That) also guest star. Plays again later. This is another great episode. I really enjoyed it. If you love your Psych episodes to be chock full of pop culture references, then you’ll will love tonight’s episode as well. Lots of fun is had with wrestling and military movies in particular. So, glad to have this show back on my TV, just wish is was for longer than six weeks. What do you think of the new Wednesday night timeslot?
