'Earl' to 'ER' all-new on NBC
NBC is all laughs and an hour of ER drama while the other networks repeat.
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.
