Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): New. Special Agent Barrett is investigating a murder she believes is part of a string of murders. The team meets Ziva’s boyfriend.

Raising Hope (FOX): Repeat. The “Happy Halloweeen” episode replays, where Jimmy offers to go with Sabrina to a party when her boyfriend can’t make it. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 30 minutes.

Solid Selections

No Ordinary Family (ABC): Season Finale. J.J. is kidnapped and forced to finish solving the equation. Joshua and Katie reconnect. George is being held hostage on a plane. This is likely the series finale.

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS): Repeat. The “Special Delivery” episode from earlier this season replays, where the team is investigating the murder of a Marine with high-level security clearance and a missing hand.

Other Options

I am liking the Body of Proof show. I hope it gets the kinks out. I think it has potential.
