David BoreanazMIKE DUFFY’S TV TODAY : Missed ’Bones’ finale? Catch up on creepy family secrets
Thursday 24 August 2006, by Webmaster
"Bones" (8 p.m., WJBK-TV, Channel 2, Fox). On an encore of the excellent first season finale, Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) collides with a traumatic revelation when the bones of a Jane Doe appear to be the remains of her long-missing mother. Booth (David Boreanaz) adds to the upheaval with unsettling news about Brennan’s parents. (Rerun)
More from Amanpour
"CNN Presents: In the Footsteps of Bin Laden" (9 p.m., CNN). Out of the shadows. With interviews of his childhood friends, relatives and others who know him, CNN hard news ace Christiane Amanpour fills in many of the details of Osama bin Laden’s life. She created a compelling portrait of the elusive terrorist leader who turned Al Qaeda into a brand name for horrific mayhem.
Laugh, laugh, laugh
"World’s Funniest Commercials" (9 p.m., TBS). Chucklehead Advertising Inc. "Weeds" joker Kevin Nealon and his wife, actress Susan Yeagley ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), host a breezy sampler of more than 60 ads from the United States and other lands. Unfortunately, the erratic banter of the hosts is way less amusing than the often inspired wit in the entertaining commercials. Fave rave? It’s the dizzily sublime live-action spoof of "The Simpsons" from Britain’s Sky TV. D’oh!
Climbing at the Capitol
"The Hill" (9 p.m., Sundance Channel). Series premiere. Get ready for the intense, dedicated and occasionally just plain foolish junior spin doctors and operatives on the legislative staff of Rep. Robert Wexler, D.-Fla. They become the focus of a six-episode, inner-workings snapshot of Capitol Hill in the months leading up to the 2004 election. A key member of the House Judiciary Committee, Wexler is surrounded by young go-getters like legislative assistant Halie Soifer. She’s a Kerry-backing liberal with a conservative, Bush-backing boyfriend.
They’ve got the beat
"TV Land’s Top 10" (10 p.m., TV Land). Top cops. It’s a countdown — or a lineup, so to speak — of the 10 best law enforcement types in TV history. Just the facts? Well, OK. Sgt. Joe Friday (Jack Webb) is definitely a pick to click. Others on the police blotter honor roll include Sheriff Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith), Detective Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Sgt. Pepper Anderson (Angie Dickinson), the world’s sexiest undercover cop. I sure hope there’s a special wretched hairspray excess citation for Jack Lord’s astonishing "Hawaii Five-O" Robo Top.
"Two-A-Days" (10:30 p.m., MTV). Series premiere. From the network that brings us the shamelessly silly "Laguna Beach," you might think MTV’s take on high school football would be limited to tackling dummies and the dim dolls they date. But this documentary series — profiling the 2005 season of the Hoover High School Buccaneers of Hoover, Ala. — scores a quick touchdown for entertaining substance as it explores the impassioned culture of high school football in the South.
