Melissa & Joey (ABC Family): Season Finale. Two episodes play tonight. In the first, Mel gets Joe to follow Lennox to her school dance. In the second, Joe comes into some money and it causes him and Mel to have to face some difficult decisions. The previous 18 episodes replay right before.
Law & Order: UK (BBC America): New. A well-liked couple gets stabbed and the inspectors investigate. Plays again later.
Necessary Roughness (USA Network): Season Finale. Dani gets an unexpected client. Nico has a big decision to make. Plays again later.
- Free Agents (NBC): Series Premiere. Two co-workers that each are still dealing with their past relationships and try to figure things out after they end up in bed together following a weak moment. Didn’t laugh once. Can’t even recall smiling or being happy while watching. I like the cast very much, but am not sure what this show is supposed to be long term and where the comedy is supposed to come from. It is an office comedy or a relationship comedy or what?
- The Hour (BBC America): New. Violence erupts and London riots. Censorship of the show is imposed. Bel risks being canceled. Plays again later.
- Up All Night (NBC): Series Premiere. A woman returns to work after having a baby and tries to adjust to her new life along with her husband who is staying home to take care of the baby. While it seems that their would be plenty of comedy to mine from a couple that hadn’t planned on getting pregnant having to deal with adding a baby into their lives, they didn’t find any of it in this first episode. The cast is great and the premise seems good, so I think there is some potential here.
- ESPN has doubleheader Wednesday Night Baseball MLB action with the Cleveland Indians at the Texas Rangers followed by the New York Yankees at the Seattle Mariners.
- Burn Notice (USA Network): Repeat. Last Thursday’s summer finale episode, “Dead to Rights,” replays.
