Lost (ABC): New. Sun and Jin are looking for each other. Fake Locke goes up against an enemy.
Justified (FX): New. Raylan gets stuck dealing with a new informant that goes missing, which puts him up against two violent criminals out for cash. Plays twice and again later. This episode is really good. I just really like this show and the Marshal Givens character, as it and he are just fun to watch. I think he may just be hanging around Kentucky for quite some time.

- Law & Order: Criminal Intent (USA): Season Premiere. This is part one of two, which serves as the exit episodes for Det. Goren, Det. Eames, and Capt. Ross. It’s actually a really good pair of episodes for the original detective duo at Major Case. Det. Nichols joins in the case after one-of-their-own is shot. Part two plays next week. Plays again later. Beginning with the third episode of the season, Jeff Goldblum’s Det. Nichols and his new partner played by Saffron Burrows (My Own Worst Enemy, Boston Legal) takeover fulltime as the detectives on the show.
- Southland (TNT): New. A detective’s daughter ends up a witness to a shooting at a nightclub. Sammy confronts his wife about photographing gang members. Plays again later.
- V (ABC): Spring Premiere. Erica has to defend herself in her home. Ryan is concerned about Val’s pregnancy. Georgie searches for Father Jack. Anna decides to recruit a new member of the resistance. This is a solid return for the show that serves to reset things to finish out the season. Erica is put in an interesting position regarding her son, her job, and the resistance. Events around the pregnancy are very interesting and include a great scene that fans of the original will love. The episode tries to grab you right off the bat, but falters a little in the middle, yet ends with another scene that gives you a flash of information about the visitors. There is a lot going on in this show. They return tonight. It will be interesting to see if the audience returns tonight as well after such a long hiatus.
