What’s new tonight:
White Collar (USA) Winter Premiere: Not one of my favorite USA series, but I will admit that White Collar is an entertaining placeholder anytime I accidentally land on it on my way to, like, Red Eye or something. Tonight, the FBI Guy (Tim DeKay) and the Smooth Criminal (Matt Bomer) track down the man who shot the Comic Relief (Willie Garson) in last fall’s cliffhanger. I suspect the Distracting Rack (Tiffany Thiessen) will also make an appearance, as well as that Damned Fedora (Bomer’s hat).
Life Unexpected (The CW) 2-Hour Series Finale: Due to a complete lack of slutty socialites and broody vampires, Life Unexpected is over at The CW—who saw that coming? A “heartwarming” throwback to the Gilmore Girls days of The WB doesn’t fly between Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries, but at least the show is getting a proper(ish) send-off, and this makes two network fails for Kristoffer Polaha (remember Valentine?). Awww …
The Walking Dead (AMC) Mini-Marathon: Since the first season of AMC’s zombie hit The Walking Dead was only six episodes long, anything involving the word “marathon” seems like a stretch—but here it is: Tonight, the first three episodes; tomorrow, the last three. Shouldn’t this be running at Brewvies, too?
Also new tonight:
No Ordinary Family, V, Detroit 187 (ABC); NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, The Good Wife (CBS); The Biggest Loser, Parenthood (NBC); Million Dollar Money Drop (Fox); What Not to Wear (TLC); Tosh.0, The Onion SportsDome (Comedy Central); Lights Out (FX); Southland (TNT); Glory Daze, Conan (TBS)
Preview: Now you’ll be as caught-up as I am on Season 2 of White Collar …
