Prime Picks

Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family): New. The aftermath of the homecoming dance is dealt with. Plays again later and next Tuesday before the next new episode. Last week’s episode replays right before tonight’s episode.

Warehouse 13 (Syfy): New. The team finds themselves stuck inside a B-movie, complete with cowboys, gladiators, and robots. Plays again later. Last week’s episode, “Mild Mannered,” replays right before. This sounds awesome. What do you think?

Covert Affairs (USA): New. As the new girl at the agency, Annie gets all the jobs nobody else wants to do, until she talks with a woman that may have intel on an active IRA cell working in the U.S. Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes) joins the cast. Plays again later. Last week’s premiere episode replays earlier in the day. What did you think of last week’s premiere? Are you onboard?

Other Options

  • Life Unexpected (The CW): Repeat. The seventh episode, “Bride Unbridled,” replays, where Baze and Math crash a wedding expo that is being hosted by Cate and Ryan.
  • Make It or Break It (ABC Family): New. Lauren does whatever it takes to win an award.
  • Memphis Beat (TNT): New. A death, a fall and country music play into tonight’s investigation. Plays again later. Like the first episode, but am liking this show less and less each week. First, the tacked on singing is so fake looking and sounding and has no real purpose. Second, the acting and writing are just not very good. Lastly, they’ve already messed with the episode order, which just always really bugs me and never makes sense. Are you still watching? I don’t think I’m going to be much longer.
  • Rescue Me (FX): New. The guys are trying to figure a way to get Lou out of the hospital. Tommy gets some advice from Father Phil. Plays again later.
  • White Collar (USA): New. Neal does some undercover work to take down a corrupt politician. Plays again later. Last week’s premiere episode replays earlier in the day. Another great episode, plus the sort of cliffhanger ending to last week’s premiere is dealt with.
  • Unnatural History (Cartoon Network): New. Henry makes a discovery after finding an old trunk. Plays again Sunday and again following next week’s new episode.

Sports Note

  • Versus has coverage of the Tour de France: Stage 16. Replays multiple times.

Late Night

  • Haven (Syfy): Repeat. Last Friday’s episode, “Butterfly,” replays.
  • Psych (USA): Repeat. Last Wednesday’s fifth season premiere episode, “Romeo and Juliet and Juliet,” replays.

    Kaliel2000, The Prime Picks our usually the shows I watch live and some of the Other Options get DVRed. But, in the case of tonight, since I’m on the west coast and my Comcast cable Syfy and USA Network HD channels are the east coast feeds, I could watch W13 at 6pm, Covert Affairs at 7pm, PLL at 8pm, White Collar at 9pm, and Memphis Beat at 10pm.
