News & Notes

Prime Picks

NCIS (CBS): Season Finale. Everyone is in danger after having figured out who the Port-to-Port killer is.

Raising Hope (FOX): Season Finale. The Chances are harkening back to Jimmy’s 18th birthday. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 30 minutes. Tonight’s season finale is for the fans that have been watching all season. It jumps back five years and we get to see where everyone was back then. While I think anyone will get some of the humor and enjoy the pathos of the episode, there are a lot of jokes that rely on stuff from past episodes. I’m very happy that we’ll be getting more Chances next fall.
Breaking In (FOX): Series Finale? Cameron is searching for a cyberbully and has to return to his old high school to find the person. Starts a minute after the half hour and runs 29 minutes. The better this episode does, the greater the possibility of FOX changing its mind on the cancellation. I would really like to see this show come back. I think it has the right cast and premise to really grow into something if given a chance. Do you hope FOX reconsiders?

The Good Wife (CBS): Season Finale. Alicia and Kalinda get stuck together working on a case. Will and Alicia think about their relationship. Can’t believe how excited I get for this show? How about you, are you ready to see what goes down in the season finale?

Solid Selections

Glee (FOX): New. Jesse St. James is helping out the glee club with selections for nationals. Runs 61 minutes. Season finale is next week.

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS): Season Finale. The team attempts to figure out what is behind Hetty’s abrupt resignation and disappearance.

Body of Proof (ABC): New. Kate’s personal life causes problems for an investigation. Megan investigates the death of a young socialite. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 59 minutes.
