Prime Picks

Life Unexpected (The CW): Season Finale. Baze is thinking about what a future would be like with Emma, not know of her secret romantic past. Lux feels like Eric is starting to pull away and attempts to fix it. Runs two hours. I will definitely be sad to see this family disappear from our TV screens. What about you? The Good Wife (CBS): New. The firm hires a jury consultant that claims to predict the outcome of cases by reading the expressions of the members of the jury. How awesome would it be if it was Dr. Lightman? Anyway, Will also finds out something about what Bond has planned for the firm.

Solid Selections

No Ordinary Family (ABC): New. The police station gets taken over and Jim's secret may be in danger. Stephanie and Kelly aren't sure what to make of the new vice president of human resources. V (ABC): New. Lisa is noticing that her body is starting to change. Erica takes Malick hostage and attempts to get some information out of her. Anna sends a team out to find Malick. She is also trying to keep her daughter in line. Runs 61 minutes. Other than the search for the soul part of the storyline, I'm enjoying this season so far and tonight's episode provides some excitement, but the most interesting part is with Anna and Erica and how close they are to the other's child. What do you think of the season after two episodes? White Collar (USA Network): Midseason Premiere. Peter gets suspended after being wrongly accused by the FBI. So, Neal has an idea how they can clear his name and find out who shot Mozzie. Plays again later. Great episode, as the second season resumes with a really fun episode that brings everybody together to pull off the sting. Next week's episode is even better.

Other Options

  • Dirty Jobs (Discovery Channel): New. Mike becomes a "Hair Fairy." Plays again later. A repeat episode plays right before.
  • Glory Daze (TBS): Season Finale. Joel and Christie are trying to figure out the meaning of their friendship. The Omega Sigs throw a huge mid semester party. Plays again Friday night.
  • Lights Out (FX): New. Lights is threatened with criminal charges and a special delivery he is forced to make may have serious consequences. Runs 62 minutes. Plays twice and again later.
