What's On? Tuesday, 1/5/10

Lots of new shows to catch tonight – most importantly, forever and always, is BETTER OFF TED (2 episodes)!!

The 8:00 Hour –

ABC has a new episode of both SCRUBS and BETTER OFF TED to fill the hour.  On SCRUBS, the gang reflects on their motivation for being doctors before getting their white coats, and Elliot helps Denise with her love life.  On BETTER OFF TED, Veronica sees an opportunity to make the staff work harder after someone drops dead during the company’s push to make a machine that helps people fall asleep.  CBS has an all new episode of NCIS – Rena Sofer guest stars as a lawyer with a grudge against Gibbs.

FOX has the ORANGE BOWL – Georgia Tech and Iowa.  NBC has the premiere of THE BIGGEST LOSER: COUPLES.   Over on The CW, check out a repeat of 90210 – it’s the episode where Dixon and Sasha spend a weekend away.

The 9:00 Hour –

On ABC, another hour of great comedy with an all new SCRUBS and BETTER OFF TED – at 9, Lucy notices that the hospital is over run with couples; at 9:30, a security guard gets too chummy with Ted, and Phil and Lem fear being paired with just Veronica for the first time.  CBS has an all new NCIS:LA – a teenager Sam knows has ties to terrorism.

THE BIGGEST LOSER continues on NBC.  FOX has the game throughout the evening.  The CW airs a repeat of MELROSE PLACE – the one where Jane comes back and stirs up a bunch of nonissues!

The 10:00 Hour –

ABC has an all new episode of the forgotten – Alex and his team have their first case of 2 Does – a male and a female of drastic age difference.  On CBS, an all new episode of THE GOOD WIFE has Alicia representing a State’s Attorney’s wife in a divorce, and she learns some things about her relationship with Peter because of it.  Leno is all new on NBC.

Check out two new episodes of PARANORMAL STATE on A&E.  There’s another new episode of TEEN MOM on MTV (a spinoff of my guilty pleasure 16 AND PREGNANT).  You can also find a new episode of TABITHA’S SALON TAKEOVER on Bravo as she heads to a shop in California!
