Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): New. The team investigates when a Navy lieutenant is murder on camera. Gibbs informs his team that Agent Barrett’s team will take over the serial killer case.

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS): New. Eric is sent undercover to make sure some tech gear is safe after a rocket engine expert gets killed.

The Good Wife (CBS): New. A dispute between a small drilling contractor and a big oil conglomerate is made more difficult by a South American dictator. The election results are in. Alicia finds out about Kalinda.

Solid Selections

Glee (FOX): Repeat. The “Duets” episode replays, where Finn and Rachel attempt to throw a competition so Sam can win. Runs 61 minutes.

Raising Hope (FOX): Repeat. The “Romeo and Romeo” episode replays, where Jimmy meets another single dad and wants to setup a play date. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 30 minutes. The Jimmy makes a phone call sequence in this episode is one of the funniest things I’ve seen on TV this season.

Parenthood (NBC): New. Amber heads down a destructive path. Crosby goes to Joel for some help with Jasmine. Adam and Kristina overhear a conversation of Haddie’s and it puts a strain on their relationship with her.

Other Options

Megan’s daughter wants to follow her around at work for a school project. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes. While I don’t think this series is as good as it could be, this is the best of the episodes so far.
  • Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen (Syfy): New. Marcel puts on a luau themed event for a business celebration. Plays again later.
  • What Not to Wear (TLC): New. Stacey and Clinton must help a woman dress her age. Both play again later.
