Prime Picks

Nikita (The CW): New. Michael wants to help a woman he once seduced while on assignment after learning she may be in some big trouble.

Supernatural (The CW): New. Sam and Dean set out to stop a witch that is killing the people of a small town after her husband cheated on her. Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters (both from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) guest star. I don’t watch a lot of Supernatural, but do catch a special episode from time to time. So, when I saw who was going to be guest starring in this episode, my interest was piqued. Sadly, not a whole lot happens in the episode.

Blue Bloods (CBS): New. Danny attempts to investigate a case and have a romantic weekend with Linda at the same time. Jaime goes undercover.

Solid Selections

The Office (NBC): Repeat. The “Lotto” episode from a couple weeks ago replays.
Parks & Recreation (NBC): Repeat. The “Born & Raised” episode from a couple weeks ago replays.

Fringe (FOX): Repeat. The fourth season premiere episode, “Neither Here Nor There,” from a few weeks ago replays.

  • Boss (Starz): Series Premiere. Kelsey Grammer stars at the ruthless mayor of Chicago. In the first episode he learns that he has a neurological disease, but must continue to focus on the gubernatorial primary. Runs 63 minutes. Plays three times.
