Monday Night Football has had problems in the past with late-season games that have featured terrible teams, but it's not often that the week six game is completely irrelevant. That feels like it might be the case tonight, though, as the 2-3 Jets take on the winless Dolphins.
So, I guess you get to do something else with your night, then? Perhaps you want to sample one of the other fine features on television tonight? Whatever you do, I can't in good conscience recommend that you watch House tonight. Charlyne Yi is possibly worse than I thought she would be.
FOX 9 PM: "When a man (Wentworth Miller) collapses after making a generous donation, House and Dr. Chi Park try to identify his medical disorder; Thirteen's pursuit of happiness is hampered by feelings of guilt." Guess Wentworth Miller's Resident Evil money ran out already. I don't know if I can get through an entire episode of Charlyne Yi anyway. She was horrid on last week's episode.
Fox 8 PM: "Jim and Shannon aren't sure if they can trust an orphan who seeks asylum at the colony; Mira tries to reclaim a valued possession; Taylor thinks a traitor is in his midst." I still haven't seen the premiere and this show's already four episodes in! Too bad that ratings look like they're off a fair amount since then. FOX already ordered 13 or so; if ratings are bad, we'll see if they cut it off in the middle of those episodes like they did with Firefly.

ESPN 5/8: Dolphins at the Jets. Miami's winless and the Jets are 2-3, so this is probably going to be exclusively for AFC East fans.
ABC 10 PM: "A sexy insurance investigator (Kristin Lehman) with a secret helps Castle and Beckett when a valuable sculpture is stolen and someone is murdered; a rich museum benefactor (Jessica Tuck) garners suspicion." Someone's sexy AND has a secret? Gosh, it doesn't sound like any other show I've ever seen ever!
CBS 10 PM: "The team's investigation into a volleyball coach's murder reveals more bad news about Kono; Chin Ho reconnects with his ex-fiance." Between last week's deep sea diver and this week's volleyball coach, it looks like the writers of H-50 are doing their best not to pick any sports with popular appeal to draw from. Next week's episode sees the death of a professional jai alaist.

CBS 9 PM: "Alan tries to come to terms with Lyndsey's past; Walden throws a party at the house."
|How I Met Your Mother|
CBS 8 PM: "Ted's friends get involved when he doesn't do a background check on his new lady friend; Lily and Marshall deal with learning their baby's gender." I don't bother waiting to make a girlfriend before doing a background check; I make sure I find out everything there is to know about them before I even initiate the first conversation. I gather the information...personally.
|Dancing with the Stars|
ABC 8 PM: "The eight remaining couples dance to classic songs from the 1980s; The Bangles perform." The Bangles, holy mackeral! I haven't thought of them in ages. For a reason.
NBC 8 PM: "The remaining groups perform guilty pleasure songs for the judges; two groups are eliminated." MORE THAN WOOOOOOOORDS, ARE ALL I EVER NEEDED YOU TO SAYYYYYYYY
