Prime Picks

Almost Human (FOX): Repeat. The third episode, “Are You Receiving?,” replays.

Atlantis (BBC America): New. In the middle of trying to win Medusa’s heart, Hercules has to visit a witch. Plays again later.

Saturday Night Live (NBC): Repeat. Jimmy Fallon hosted with musical guest Justin Timberlake. This was the first episode of this show that I’ve watched in quite some time and I was not disappointed. It had a very high percentage of funny stuff, especially the sketches that Timberlake was in with Fallon.
