Prime Picks

No Ordinary Family (ABC): New. Jim becomes suspicious of some new friends. Daphne decides to run for student council president. Katie tells Stephanie a secret.

V (ABC): Season Premiere. Chad wants to join the Fifth Column. Erica is looking for a scientist that might be able to explain the Red Sky before the Visitors get to him. V started out really good in its first season, stumbled a bit and then ended really strong. Well, the second season opens really well too. Hopefully, we will get more good stuff before the second season finale rolls around.

Parenthood (NBC): New. Crosby is trying to teach Jabbar to cleanup after himself. Drew gets caught drinking. Joel and Julia have to talk to their daughter about death.

Solid Selections

Glee (FOX): Repeat. The second season premiere episode, “Audition,” replays.

Dirty Jobs (Discovery Channel): New. Mike works paving some roads in Nebraska. Plays again later. A repeat episode plays right before.

Southland (TNT): Season Premiere. Lydia is trying to get used to her new partner. John’s back pain is getting worse. Russell is dealing with having a desk job. Plays again later. The show just does a really good job of portraying interesting characters dealing with some really interesting cases. I still wish that the show focused more on the patrol cops, but if you’ve been a fan of the show in its first two seasons, you going to like what you see tonight.
