Prime Picks

Nikita (The CW): New. Percy is threatening to set off his nuclear weapons. Nikita decides to head into Division, as she believes it is the only way to stop Percy. Next week is the season finale.

Fringe (FOX): Season Finale. The team sets out to stop a catastrophic event from happening.

Blue Bloods (CBS): Season Finale. Frank is trying to stop an attack on the city, while trying to keep what is going on from his family. Jamie and Danny get into it.

Solid Selections

The Finder (FOX): Season Finale. Walter’s father asks him to find his first love before he dies. FOX has announced that they won’t be picking this show up for next season.

Grimm (NBC): New. Juliette comes across a terrible murder. Hank sees something he wasn’t supposed to see. Next week is the season finale.

Common Law (USA Network): Series Premiere. Two bickering cops are sent to couples therapy to work out their differences. They investigate the murder of a judge’s son. Plays again later. If you like most of USA Network’s shows, you will probably like this one. It makes a solid debut, is fun in places, and too over-the-top in others. I need to see more episodes to see how well the basic premise is going to work and for how long. The show really feels like they mixed a standard detective show with the therapy portion of Necessary Roughness.

Other Options

  • Fairly Legal (USA Network): New. Kate and Ben are helping Judge Nicastro in a contract dispute. Lauren buys a new painting for the lobby of the firm. Plays again later. Last week’s episode, “Ripple of Hope,” replays earlier in this morning.
