News & Notes

Get Justified S.1 on DVD or Blu-ray at AmazonOn cable tonight, A&E has the first season finale of Storage Wars, Lifetime has the first season finale of Glamour Belles, Syfy has the seventh spring finale of Ghost Hunters, and TLC has the second season finale of Hoarding: Buried Alive.

In late night, SOAPnet has the third season finale of Being Erica.

Prime Picks

The Middle (ABC): New. Frankie is obsessed with the royal wedding. Sue wants to tryout for the school’s news team.
Better With You (ABC): New. Maddie doesn’t believe the story Mia tells about how she met Casey is how it actually happened. Vicky and Joel give Casey and Mia an engagement party at the country club.

Modern Family (ABC): New. Mitchell and Cameron have to decide who Lily she go to in the unlikely event that something happened to both of them. Runs 31 minutes.
Cougar Town (ABC): New. Ellie gets Jules to baby-sit on her own. Bobby has a chance at playing free golf. Runs 29 minutes. I am so happy to have this show back, especially after the disappointment that was Mr. Sunshine.

Justified (FX): New. Raylan sets out to find whoever was behind the assassination attempt. Runs 61 minutes. Plays twice and again later. This is an outstanding episode that sets things up for an explosive ending to the season over the next couple of episodes. Boyd, the Bennetts, and others are all on a collision course with Raylan right in the middle.

Other Options

  • Breaking In (FOX): New. NASCAR racer Jimmy Johnson comes to his old friend Oz for help investigating a security leak.
  • Happy Endings (ABC): New. Two new episodes play tonight. In the first, the guys realise that stuff is going missing from their place. In the second, Max’s friends think he should finally come out of the closet to his parents and Penny meets the perfect guy with an unfortunate name. Once again, I didn’t laugh a whole lot at the first episode tonight, but did at the second one. If future episode could be more like tonight’s second episode, then it might be able to keep me as a viewer, but if it turns out to be the exception to the rule, which is has so far, then I won’t be around much longer.
  • MythBusters (Discovery Channel): New. Walking on water and bombproofing everyday things. Plays again later. Last week’s episode replays right before.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has Wednesday Night Baseball MLB action with the Minnesota Twins at the Baltimore Orioles.
  • NBA TV has playoff action with the Memphis Grizzlies at the San Antonio Spurs.
  • TNT has doubleheader NBA playoff action with the Denver Nuggets at the team that shall not be named followed by the New Orleans Hornets at the Los Angeles Lakers.

quit being a loser and saying the team that shall not be named. It just makes you look like an idiot with a grudge. I’ve unsubscribed from your emails.
