  • Dave ChappelleAt 8, NBC has something called Star Tomorrow, which sounds like another music talent show. It's folowed by a new Treasure Hunters.
  • TBS is showing four early eps of Friends tonight, starting at 8. The first season isn't the best, but it's better than the last.
  • Bravo has a new Inside The Actor's Studio, with Hugh Laurie.
  • Oxygen has the movie Ordinary People at 8, with Mary Tyler Moore, Timothy Hutton, and Donald Sutherland.
  • Also at 8: American Life is showing the Harry O movie. If you're not familiar with Harry O, it's a well-done private eye series from the 70s starring David Janssen. It's followed by 77 Sunset Strip and Bourbon Street Beat.
  • At 9, FOX has a new episode of Hell's Kitchen.
  • TNT has a new ep of The Closer at 9, followed by a new Saved.
  • USA has a new episode of WWE Monday Night RAW at 9.
  • A&E has a new Driving Force at 9.
  • At 10, ABC has a new reality show, One Ocean View.
  • BBC America has a new Life on Mars at 10.
  • Bravo has a new Tabloid Wars at 10.
  • AMC has Tom Hanks in Big at 10, one of my favorite movies.
  • Also at 10: A&E has a new Biography on Dave Chappelle.

LOL! Guilty as charged, Doc. I set my taping for "Kyle XY", "The Closer" and "Life On Mars" for viewing when I get home from work in the morning. So I skip right past "Falcon Beach". (BTW, saw it once, didn't like it.)

I could put a spin on this by saying I knew if Bob was going to put up "Kyle XY", he'd go the whole route and post the rest of the lineup for ABC Family.

Speaking of "Life On Mars", can anybody tell me if last night's episode was shown out of order? I could have sworn we were shown previews last week for an episode about Sam meeting his father back in 1973....

Oh, and getting back to "Falcon Beach".... the title sounds too much like an x-rated epithet I hear too often from the courtyard of these buildings.....

Hey Toby, I just wanted to know if personal opinions go into picking the shows you point out that Bob missed for what's on tonight?

Because I'm curious why you mention Kyle XY, but not Falcom Beach, which is also new tonight, and airs right after Kyle XY.

Toby: I'm a big fan of Life on Mars myself, and for some reason I thought it was on Tues at 10.

Hi Bob!
I just wanted to know if personal opinions go into picking what gets mentioned as to what's on tonight?

Because I'm curious as to why there was no mention of 'Kyle Xy' on ABC Family at 8, or 'Life On Mars' on BBC-America at 10?

They're both pretty good shows; one seems to be doing well in the ratings and the other got high critical praise and is just starting out. Both could have used a little promo here.

Just askin', is all....
