Prime Picks

Chuck (NBC): New. Shaw having found out who was behind the death of his wife seems to have lost it. Morgan might leave the Buy More once again. According to pretty much everyone I follow on Twitter that was at the Chuck Wonder Con panel, where this episode was screened yesterday, this is the best episode of the season thus far. This included many that are not ones to go in for hyperbole, so I am really looking forward to tonight’s episode.

Trauma (NBC): New. Nancy is treating a high school cheerleader and goes against protocol to do so. Rabbit and Marisa are exposed to meningitis and have to be quarantined together. Boone and Tyler’s partnership is tested.

Castle (ABC): New. Beckett and Castle are investigating the death of a museum curator when they learn he isn’t the only one from a recent expedition to have died. Starts two minutes after the hour and runs 58 minutes. ABC has picked the show up for a third season, which is great news.

Solid Selections

24 (FOX): New. Two new episodes play tonight. President Taylor deals with a big setback. President Hassan makes a fateful decision. Some that have been trusted become enemies of the state.

Saving Grace (TNT): New. Grace continues to deal with the aftermath of her fall off the building. The squad investigates a double homicide. Rhetta finds out something about her daughter. Plays again later.

Other Options

  • 10 Things I Hate About You (ABC Family): New. Kat has Patrick over for dinner. Cameron becomes “Mr. Dependable.” Chastity reacts to finding out about Bianca and Joey. Runs 30 minutes. Last week’s season premiere episode replays right before.
  • Damages (FX): New. Patty makes an unexpected deal after her potential star witness is arrested. Frobisher tells too much of his story. Plays twice and again later, plus replays multiple times throughout the week. This has been a most excellent season so far. Can’t wait to see how it wraps up. There is talk that Sony, the production company behind the show, is seeking a deal with DirectTV, similar to the Friday Night Lights deal NBC struck with them, to share the expense of producing a fourth season of the show.
  • Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives (Food Network): New. Guy checks out three places in Hawaii. A repeat episode follows. Both play again later.

  • Nurse Jackie (Showtime): New. O’Hara offers to setup a college fund for Jackie’s kids. Jackie finds out about her husbands friendship with Eddie. Runs 30 minutes. Plays again later.
  • Rules of Engagement (CBS): New. Audrey tells one of her friends that she is on the list of women Jeff would want to hook up with, if he were not with Audrey. Scheduled to play before or after the basketball game tonight depending on your time zone.
  • United States of Tara (Showtime): New. The truth about Tara’s alters re-emerging gets out. Neil finds out about Charmaine engagement. Runs 30 minutes. Plays again later. There is a great twist coming up in this episode or maybe next week regarding Tara’s alters.
