Deadliest Catch, The Good Wife, and Sports Show with Norm MacDonald

  • 30comments

What to watch on Tuesday, April 12.

Tonight when you are building a fort in the living room out of couch cushions and blankets, remember to leave a hole pointed at the TV, because you will NOT want to miss what's on. (Also, a living room fort without sufficient television access is a violation of City Code §1445.34(a)(i) and you could find yourself paying a stiff penalty or serving JAIL time. So please—Learn from my mistakes.)


8pm, CBS
NCIS
Tonight the team tracks the murderer of a navy officer after catching a glimpse of him on a Pentagon security camera. (Trust me, this is a new episode.) Also, the newly returned Agent Barrett steps on some toes when she and her team take over a serial killer investigation.

10pm, CBS
The Good Wife
When the team represents a mom 'n pop drilling operation in a suit against a huge oil corporation, they quickly find themselves mixed up with a very annoyed South American dictator. Also, we'll finally learn who wins the state attorney election.

SEASON PREMIERE, 8pm, ABC
Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Jamie Oliver returns to make our children less fat. This season he sets his sights on the Los Angeles Unified School district, or at least ATTEMPTS to, seeing as LAUSD refuses to allow him any access. Uh-oh, good thing he's CHARMING.

SEASON PREMIERE, 8pm, Discovery
Deadliest Catch
After last year's tragic death of Captain Phil Harris, it's time for the crab fleet to pick up the pieces and fill them pots. In tonight's seventh-season opener, the 2010 crab season begins with the addition of a few new skippers. Be careful, guys!

SERIES PREMIERE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
Sports Show with Norm Macdonald
Good things happen to hilarious people—Norm Macdonald is back with a steady gig! In tonight's series premiere of his sports-themed Daily Show, Norm will go undercover as an NBA superstar as well as say a sardonic thing or two about Tiger Woods and Barry Bonds.

SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, WE
Sinbad: It's Just Family
Speaking of someone due for a comeback (even though he's far, far less funny), check out Sinbad's new reality show, which explores the ups and downs of his newest marriage. In tonight's premiere, Sinbad remarries his ex-wife and moves back in with her after losing his house to the IRS. I just hope nobody rubs Novocain on their hands shortly before a dinner party. (Houseguest rules!)
