TV Highlights: Top 12 Perform on "Idol"

Welcome to TV Highlights. I shift through the TV listings and mention whatever catches my eye. I then deem it a highlight. Simple enough premise, right? Well, the twist is... it may not be a highlight after all! (But, it still might be... Will we ever know?)

Monday, March 10
The two-hour finale of October Road airs at 9 p.m. on ABC. Eddie and Janet's relationship will be strained! Will they get back together? Will the show come back? Who knows?
Cantebury's Law makes it's premiere and New Amsterdam gets it's third episode within a week on FOX. (8 p.m.)
Anjelica Houston makes an appearance in part 1 of a 2-parter Medium. (10 p.m., NBC)

Tuesday, March 11
American Idol is two-hours long as the Top 12 sing songs from The Beatles. It's the British Invasion all over again! (8 p.m., FOX)
Biggest Loser is two-hours long as the... teams lose weight and get sentimental. Sorry, NBC, but, Idol wins this round. (8 p.m.)
Brooke has to deal with Victoria on One Tree Hill. (9 p.m., The CW)
Disney Channel has a movie called Bob the Butler, which supposedly has both Tom Green and Brooke Shields in it, which boggles my mind. Also, there is a kids show called Bob the Builder. Is this part of a Bob the... series? (8 p.m.)

Wednesday, March 12
Marin and Jack decide to move in together, despite the town of Elmo's advice. Oh, those Alaskans! (Men in Trees, 10 p.m., ABC)
American Idol is new at 9 p.m. on FOX, in which we find out who is the first of the Top 12 to go home.
America's Next Top Model is new at 8 on The CW.
FX has The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen at 8, which is not as good as I had hoped, but I have high standards, so maybe it's not so bad?

Thursday, March 13
Lost is new on ABC at 9 p.m., in which we learn the rest of the Oceanic Six, who the captain of the freighter is, and maybe even more!
Don't Forget the Lyrics is FOX's counter-programming at 9 p.m.
Wendy, Nico and BoyToy go to Scotland on Lipstick Jungle. Poor Victory! (Ha! I just said "Poor Victory!") (10 p.m., NBC)
BRANDON LEE ALERT: His last film, The Crow, airs at 8 p.m. on WXSP.
FX has Ice Age at 8 p.m., which is a GREAT film to watch then if you are trying to get to sleep. (No angry e-mails, please.)
Travel Channel has the 25 Sexiest Beaches at 8 p.m.

Friday, March 14
The Return of Jezebel James has two new episodes on FOX, followed by that episode of House where the boy thinks he was taken by aliens or something. (8 p.m.)
Two new hours of 20/20! (9 p.m., ABC)
Friday Night Smackdown!, of course, on The CW.
AMC will creep you out with the 1976 film The Omen at 8 p.m.

Saturday, March 15
Catch Me If You Can, 8 p.m., ABC. (If you haven't seen it, shame on you. It is a funny, heartwarming story of a con man. It even feels a little... old-fashioned!)
The CW7 has Mrs. Brown, a Judi Dench movie about Queen Victoria's relationship with a servant. (8 p.m.)
You don't need to see the whole movie, but Drumline's finale is a musical wonderland. (8 p.m., TNT)

Sunday, March 16
Big Brother is new, because CBS needs something to be new. (8 p.m.)
ABC Family has Cutting Edge 3 at 8, which is a skating movie in which angsty teens skate and fall in love. (Spoiler alert?)
Josh Lucas coaches a basketball team to victory (Spoiler alert?) in Glory Road. (8 p.m., TNT)
At 7 p.m., catch Howl's Moving Castle on the Disney Channel.
USA plays National Treasure at 8, because it's probably been a month since the last time.
