Monk rules as cable dominates yet again as SCI FI and USA deliver all new programming.
Well, the tide didn’t shift as much as I thought on “So You Think You Can Dance.” Check it out in my recap, later today.
The one thing I forgot to DVR was “Flashpoint,” so I only caught the end but it had a cool twist. I’m not chomping at the bit for this show, but I like it. How about you?
Waiting for me now on the DVR is the SoapNet ice hockey series, MVP. This, I’m totally hooked on and you don’t have to be a hockey fan to love it. It’s kind of like “Real Housewives of Orange County” only in Canada.
Let’s move on to:
Tonight on TV
Lots of changes to the pre-printed TV schedule, so let’s hope we get this right.
For cheesy horror fun (and I mean that in a good way), watch Tom Welling in “The Fog” on FOX.
The CW has one of the last few weeks of “Smackdown.”
ABC may be showing “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” followed by “20/20.”
CBS is going with “Ghost Whisperer,” “Numb3rs” and a new “Swingtown.”
NBC has “The Most Outrageous Moments” and “Dateline NBC.”
Over on cable
It’s a wowza on SCI FI tonight with the season finale of “Doctor Who.” Stars from all over the who-verse converge to save the Earth from destruction. Then the people of “Stargate Atlantis” take a trip to an alternate universe.
The Food Network spends an hour on “Unwrapped” looking at popular summer foods and at 10:30 it’s an all new “Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels.”
“Dog Whisperer” is new at 9:00 on National Geographic, “Monk” and “Psych” are working it over on USA and “Ashley Paige” has two new episodes on TLC.
News and notable
Billy Dee Williams will be checking in to “Private Practice” next season.
Mark Consuelos will guest on “Ugly Betty.”
“Sopranos” tough guy Vincent Pastore will be paying a visit to “General Hospital”
Stephen Colbert now has a spider named after him. It’s a trapdoor spider found on the California coast that has been labeled Aptostichus Stephencolberti by East Carolina University. And that’s news you can’t live without.
