News & Notes
On cable tonight, HBO has a James Gandolfini: Tribute to a Friend special.
After a fall season of jammed packed Sunday nights with not just a lot of TV, but a lot of high quality TV, it feels weird that there is practically nothing on to watch, especially if you are not a football fan. I’ve tried to find a few things worth checking out. Your best overall bets are a replay of Psych: The Musical on USA Network this morning, the season one marathon of The Returned on Sundance all day and/or the repeat of The Good Wife on CBS tonight, which is one of the best episodes of TV not just this fall, but this past year. It also may just be a good night to dip into that Netflix queue for something like The IT Crowd, which I recently re-watched and loved just as much the second time as I did the first. Will you be watching any of these tonight?
The Good Wife (CBS): Repeat. The absolutely fantastic, “Hitting the Fan,” episode from earlier this season replays.
Chopped (Food Network): Repeat. Chefs have to use the secret ingredients to make holiday inspired dishes. Plays again later.
Cutthroat Kitchen (Food Network): New. Chefs are handed a broken cooking utensil and some duct tape and have to use some interesting replacements for ice cream toppings. Plays again later.
