News & Notes

Get Dexter Season 4 on DVD at AmazonOn cable tonight, E! has the first season finale of The Spin Crowd, Food Network has series premiere of Food Feuds, and TLC has a My Brand New Face special.

Today’s Tonight on the Tube was posted from an Alaska Airlines plane with Internet access while on my way too Orlando, Fl., which has nothing to do with anything really other than I think it’s just too cool.

Prime Picks

The Simpsons (FOX): New. Lisa becomes the coach of Bart‘s little league team. MLB manager Mike Scioscia give Bart some advice. Runs 30 minutes.

Dexter (Showtime): New. Dexter decides to hire a nanny. Quinn continues to look into the Rita murder. Plays again later. What happens when Dexter goes after his next victim is pretty funny.

Solid Selections

Challenge (Food Network): Repeat. Four cake builders compete in a “Toy Story 3 Cakes“ competition. Plays again later.
