Prime Picks

Bitten (Syfy): Season Premiere. Elena and the pack are after Malcolm Danvers. Jeremy’s leadership is brought into question. Plays again later. The previous 10 episodes replay earlier today.

Bitten (Syfy): New. Clay is looking for information on a symbol that may be witchcraft related. Plays again later.

Lost Girl (Syfy): Season Premiere. Bo heads to hell in search of a friend. Tamsin deals with an old foe. Plays again later.

Solid Selections

Grimm (NBC): New. Nick and Hank investigate a case that seems to be related to a dangerous Native American myth come to life. Juliette gets into some trouble.

The Messengers (The CW): Series Premiere. This is not really a solid selection, as I have no idea what is going on in this one. Not because I haven’t seen it yet, but because I have and have no clue what the story or purpose is after the first episode. There is someone/something that lands on earth and some people end up with abilities and headed towards each other. But, why or for what purpose really, I could not tell you. If you watch and think you know, I’d be very interested in hearing your thoughts.

Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives (Food Network): New. Guy goes after the “Sweet, Savory and Saucy.” Runs 30 minutes. Plays again later.

Other Option

  • Cristela (ABC): New. The interns find out their bar exam results. Starts a minute after the half hour and runs 29 minutes following Last Man Standing.

Sports Note

  • Golf Channel has first round coverage of Greater Gwinnett Championship Champions Tour golf tournament, second round coverage of The Heritage PGA golf tournament, and third round coverage of the LPGA Lotte Championship golf tournament.
