News & Notes

Download House, M.D. Episodes via Amazon Video On DemandTonight, NBC has the first spring season premiere of The Event.

On cable tonight, ABC Family has the series finale of Greek, Lifetime has the TV movie premiere of He Loves Me, Oxygen has the series premiere of All About Aubrey, style has the second season premiere of Too Fat for 15, and Syfy has the second spring season premiere of Stargate Universe.

Prime Picks

House (FOX): New. Cuddy gets some news that may change her priorities. A patient with lots of suspicious scars may point to something more than a physical ailment.

Greek (ABC Family): Series Finale. The KTs, with help from friends, work to save their house from demolition. This is a fantastic finale. I was thinking of writing up a full review, but would not be able to tell you why I loved the episode so much without describing what happens, which would be way too spoilery. So, I will just say that if you’ve ever had any love for the show, you should watch tonight. Other than a couple of minor details, I couldn’t have asked for anything more from this show. I’m so glad that they were given these final 10 episodes to close out the series, as both the characters and the fans that loved them deserved this episode.

Stargate Universe (Syfy): Spring Premiere. A plan is hatched that could by the Destiny time, as repairs to the shields are made so they can jump. Plays again later. Great episode. Gets the second half of season two of to a very tense start. But, if you’re a fan of the show, this episode will only serve to make you even more disappointed that the series has been canceled.

Solid Selections

Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family): New. Suspicions have been turned on Spencer, but the group finds that there are a lot more people in town with secrets. Plays again later.

The Chicago Code (FOX): New. Wysocki takes on the investigation of a teenager murdered in Chinatown and has to deal with some less than cooperative locals.

Castle (ABC): Repeat. The “Nikki Heat” episode from earlier this season replays, where Laura Prepon (That ’70s Show) guest stars as actress Natalie Rhodes and wants to follow Beckett around to prepare for the part of Nikki Heat in the movie. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes. This is one of my favorite episodes of the series. Prepon was fantastic, plus it has one of the best “meta” moments ever.

Other Options

  • Being Human (Syfy): New. Sally is dealing with lots of ghosts at the hospital. Josh is nervous about his date with Nora. Plays again later. The previous episode replays right before.
  • Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives (Food Network): New. Guy checks out places that serve up some tasty “Soup and Sandwiches.” A repeat episode follows. Both play again later.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has doubleheader college basketball action.
  • ESPN2 has tripleheader college basketball action.
  • NBA TV has the Los Angeles Clippers at the Charlotte Bobcats.

Late Night

  • White Collar (USA Network): Repeat. Last Tuesday’s episode, “Power Play,” replays. The Peter and Neal switch was outstandingly done.

TV Marathons

Bravo has five episodes of Millionaire Matchmaker followed by nine episodes of Bethenny Getting Married?
Discovery Channel has six episodes of MythBusters early and later six episodes of American Chopper.
Oxygen has 16 episodes of The Bad Girls Club.
USA Network has 11 episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
WE has seven episodes of Little Miss Perfect early and later 10 episodes of The Golden Girls tonight.

Wow, that’s quite optimistic wording: “first spring season premiere of The Event“! I would be shocked if we ever see a second spring season premiere! :)

I hate and love the Greek finale so damn much. They ended it perfectly, but I want to see what happens next semester ssooooo much.

Kyle, Yes, could’ve used just midseason premiere, even if last premiere of any kind is most likely the truth.

Nick, Yes, it was the perfect way to end a show like Greek, as these characters still have a lot of life/story to live/tell. It left us in a good place, so that we can imagine the rest ourselves.
