at . Comments

What should you set your TiVo for tonight? And what should you say Ti-NO to?

Our staff combs through this evening's television listings and helps readers set their viewing schedules:

  • 8 p.m. The most original show on TV premieres its second season: Pushing Daisies (ABC); The New Adventures of Old Christine is actually kind of funny (CBS)
  • 9 p.m. Kate Walsh tries to save Private Practice after a terrible first season (ABC); Criminal Minds (CBS); The unappreciated glory that is Friday Night Lights debuts on its new (also old) night, and on its new network (DirecTV)
  • 10 p.m. It's a Lipstick Jungle out there (NBC); Do you enjoy your Dirty Sexy Money? (ABC) We do. A lot.
Chuck and Ned

On Pushing Daisies, Chuck and Ned can't touch each other. But the show can touch the hearts of its viewers.

Avoid at all costs: Knight Rider (9 p.m. on NBC). Help send a message that television writers need to come up with new ideas, as crazy as that sounds.
