Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV


The Good Wife
– Despite the tension between them, Alicia and Kalinda work together to try to clear their murder case client. And, Alicia and Will fans, this could be the episode you’ve waited for, as there finally seems to be little reason for Alicia to keep her feelings for her co-worker under wraps any longer.

– Jessie St. James helps the Glee-sters work on their set list for Nationals, but all that takes a back seat when … well, the episode is titled “Funeral.”

– 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all Gaga, all the time. That’s Fuse’s plan for the next week, leading up to the pop star’s new album release on May 23. The Gaga schedule kicks off tonight with a new, two-part interview, Lady Gaga Born This Way Part 1: On The Record with Fuse.

Kerr Smith, Sarah Jane Morris and Enrique Murciano guest star as the NCIS team comes face-to-face with the Port-to-Port Killer.

One Tree Hill
– Haley and Brooke team up to run Karen’s cafe, and Mouth and Millicent become morning show co-hosts.

NCIS: Los Angeles
– Callen and company try to track down Hetty (Linda Hunt) to find out the reason behind her sudden resignation.

Raising Hope
– Flashback time: The Chance family recalls the year Jimmy turned 18, which included his goth phase and Maw Maw kicking everyone out of her house.

Breaking In
– Yep, sigh, series finale for the show that seemed like it was only going to get better. Mike Tyson guest stars in the episode, which finds Cameron forced to revisit his past when Contra is charged with finding a cyberbully at his old high school.

Channel Surfing – July 29

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Here’s official proof that anyone can get a reality series these days: Tobey Maguire‘s mom – yes, Spider-Man’s mama – is working on a reality series that will focus on her attempts with her other son, 15-year-old Weston, to remain normal in the shadow of her famous son’s Hollywood life. Next up: the guy who waves at you when you drive by his house while he’s mowing the lawn gets his own reality show.

– No surprise here: Both Burn Notice and Royal Pains have been renewed on USA Network. The shows’ popularity led to USA ending July as the most-watched cable network on the tube.

Prison Break star Robert Knepper and his evil Samuel will be a regular on the fourth season of Heroes, and The Hollywood Reporter has a preview clip of the new season.

– Pre-season research is indicating that CBS’ NCIS spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles and The Jay Leno Show could be among the big breakout hits of the fall.

– It’s not a return to Deadwood, but Timothy Olyphant will be playing a marshal again, this time in FX’s new drama Lawman. Olyphant will play Raylan Givens, an Elmore Leonard character whose retro approach to being a lawman gets him sent to Kentucky to deal with baddies in his hometown. Bonus: The Shield star Walton Goggins (who so deserved an Emmy nod for the last season of that show) will be among Lawman‘s guest stars.

– Wonder what you’d look like as a Mad Men character? Would you be a chain-smoking, cocktail-swilling shark of an ad exec, or would you just be drawn that way? Find out at, where you can create your own animated Mad Men-era you.
