Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family): New. The girls are trying to figure out how to deal with being separated. Plays again later and next week before the next week’s episode.
White Collar (USA Network): New. Diana is sent undercover. Neal and Peter are looking into a pharmaceutical company. Plays again later.

- Combat Hospital (ABC): Series Premiere. Two new doctors arrive at the medical facility at Kandahar Airfield and find their first 48 hours to be both trying and tiring. This show is not good. They actually found a way to make the goings-on in and around an emergency room in the middle of a war zone boring. Yet, a lot of stuff happens, just in a less than compelling way.
- The Nine Lives of Chloe King (ABC Family): New. Chloe feels bad about Xavier and decides to try and help out his brother. Plays again next week before the Pretty Little Liars replay. Last week’s “Pilot” episode replays earlier this evening. Perfectly fun episode, just like last week, but still makes no sense that you wouldn’t be drilling the other Mai for as much info as you can get. Need to know more about what the long term story potential is for this to become must watch.
- Raising Hope (FOX): Repeats. The “Cultish Personality” and “Toy Story” episodes replay. The later is the Christmas episode and one of my favorites from the first season,
