TV Tonight: Criminal Minds, Mr. Sunshine, Top Chef All Stars


Not only did the original songs suck last night on Glee, but so did Kathy Griffin—how lazy was that Sarah Palin impersonation? So much for your network/gay crossover moment, Kathy. ---

What’s new tonight:
Criminal Minds (CBS) It’s Agent Prentiss’ (Paget Brewster) final episode, one that’s been written to leave next season open for her return if Brewster doesn’t land a gig on another show. She has been cast in a potential new NBC comedy, but it hasn’t officially been picked up—so, still a cliffhanger. Tonight, Prentiss faces her nemesis Doyle for the last time, with some surprise backup from old BAU teammate J.J. (A.J. Cook, who left Criminal Minds earlier this season). Should be a tearjerker—unlike, say, when Mandy Patinkin or what’s-her-name (the pre-Prentiss) split.

Mr. Sunshine (ABC) The Matthew Perry comedy is actually working, because it’s not (as originally feared) all about Matthew Perry. Costars Andrea Anders, James Lesure, Nate Torrence and especially Allison Janney are all pulling their funny weight and then some, just as Courteney Cox’s pals do on the now-I-don’t-miss-it-as-much Cougar Town. Tonight on Mr. Sunshine, you get James Taylor and lingerie football in the mix—comedy!

Top Chef All Stars (Bravo) The final four cheftestants (yes, I did just use that) compete in a bizarre Gilligan’s Island-style cook-off, but that’s not the best news. Get ready: Host Padma Lakshmi … in a bikini. Very heterosexual of you, bravo …

Also new tonight:
Off the Map
(ABC); Survivor, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior (CBS); Minute to Win It (NBC); American Idol (Fox); America's Next Top Model, Shedding for the Wedding (The CW); Hot in Cleveland, Retired at 35 (TV Land); The Real World (MTV); Ghost Hunters, Face Off (Syfy); Man vs. Food (Travel); Justified (FX); Conan (TBS)    

Preview: Top Chef All Stars hits the beach—but where’s Padma?!
