'Earl' to 'ER' all-new on NBC

Apr 17, 2008 at 2:44 p.m. ET

NBC is all laughs and an hour of ER drama while the other networks repeat.

Hang on! 30 Rock's laughs are a riot

Tonight on TV


Only Fox and NBC are all new tonight.

NBC has "My Name is Earl," Tina Fey's "30 Rock," "The Office," and "Scrubs" followed by a new "ER."  Fox has two game shows, "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader" and "Don't Forget the Lyrics" -- so that hardly counts.

ABC has two hours of "Lost" but it's a rerun leading up to the season finale of "Eli Stone." Think we'll see George Michael?

CBS has a new "Survivor: Micronesia," then goes to reruns with "CSI" and "Without a Trace."

The CW starts with a dark new episode of "Smallville," then follows with the last "Supernatural" rerun before the show returns next week.

And if you've never seen VH1's "I Know My Kid's a Star," give it a shot at 10:00 tonight. It's one of the most amusing train wreck reality shows on TV.
