Secret Millionaire, 8 p.m., ABC
Tonight’s millionaire is named Amos Winbush III. I’m starting to think some names are just destined to attract massive fortunes. Maybe I should change mine to J. Rupert Standardoil.
Breaking Bad, 10 p.m., AMC
Looking back on that time Walt and Jesse stole a barrel of methylamine after locking a security guard in a Port-a-Potty, last week’s modern day train robbery on a tanker car full of the stuff is just that much more awesome. And oh yeah, the new guy murdered a kid. So that’s what we’re dealing with tonight.
Weeds, 10 p.m., Showtime
I vowed to put this show on hiatus after a generally unimpressive and meandering run of episodes, but then I found out that it’s calling it quits after this season. So I’m toughing out this last run of unimpressive and meandering episodes to see what kind of closure they’ll offer.
About this column: With so many channels and so little time, it's hard to know what to watch on TV every night. Elissa Bass is here to help you decide.
