American Idol (8pm, Fox) - The show is down to a more manageable 1-hour tonight, as the eight remaining female contestants perform.
Lost (9pm, ABC) - Sounds like a Ben-centric episode tonight.
Parenthood (10pm, NBC) - Adam and Kristina deal with the news that their son has Asperger's syndrome, and Crosby gets to know his new son.
The Good Wife (10pm, CBS) - While Alicia and Will defend an attorney for murder, they must also deal with tabloid rumors that Alicia is sleeping with Will to further her career.
White Collar (10pm, USA) - In the first season finale, Alex and Neal pair up to go after the elusive music box at the Italian Embassy -- even though Peter told Neal last week that if he went after the music box, he'd send him back to prison. Neal's buddy Mozzie (Willie Garson at right with Matt Bomer) has quickly become my favorite character on the show. Also, is it too much to ask that in Season 2 we put this whole "search for Kate" mess behind us?
Southland (10pm, TNT) - One of last week's most moving scenes involved Lydia's realization that Tom isn't coming back to work. Tonight she'll continue adjusting to her cocky new partner, as they investigate a gruesome triple homicide that highlights their different approaches to the job.
Note: 10pm is pretty crowded with good dramas on Tuesday nights, so if you dvr or TiVo, remember that "White Collar" and "Southland" both repeat at 1am. And right now, NBC has "Parenthood" scheduled to repeat at 8pm on Saturday (March 13). Next week there's no "White Collar" so the pressure eases a bit.
