Prime Picks

Person of Interest (CBS): Repeat. The “Judgment” episode from this past season replays, where Finch and Reese are investigating a tough judge.

The Glades (A&E): New. Jim and Carlos are investigating the battle between a nudist colony and a luxury condo developer. Plays again later. The previous episode replays earlier this morning.

The Newsroom (HBO): Series Premiere. A TV newsman has a meltdown during an appearance and returns to work to find many of his staff leaving. His ex-girlfriend/new producer comes aboard along with some new staff to create a new show. Runs 75 minutes. Plays twice. This show is getting some interesting reviews, given its journalism setting and that many reviewing it work in such a field. But, I am very much looking forward to it. How about you, will you be watching tonight?

Plays again later. The previous two episodes replay earlier this evening. I am very intrigued by what is happening with Ben over tonight and next week’s episode.
