Tuesday: Suspense! Drama! Pop some popcorn and watch the Super Tuesday results roll in. Plus: What did you think of "Paradise Hotel 2" on Monday?

Prime Pick


The most dramatic and suspenseful TV entertainment of the year (so far) awaits us tonight with the coverage of the Super Tuesday primaries (8 p.m. EST on ABC and CNN, 9 p.m. EST on CBS). With the latest reports showing Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in a dead heat in most of the 24 states that go to the polls today, tonight's returns should be a real nail-biter. And that's not to mention the exciting graphs and charts, the busy red, white and blue studio sets, the premature punditry, the begrudging concession speeches -- there's just so much to look forward to! Better go home tonight, make a big bowl of popcorn, and settle in for one of the best roller-coaster rides of the campaign year.


With so much campaign action afoot, this is also a good night to check in with "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" (8 p.m. EST on Comedy Central), followed by "The Colbert Report" (8:30 p.m. EST on Comedy Central). If you need a break from the suspense, you might want to tune in for the (just as suspenseful) season finale of "House" (9 p.m. EST on Fox) or check out "Energy War" (9:30 p.m. on Sundance), a documentary outlining the political consequences of the oil shortage. For lighter fare, sample some of the engagingly silly skits of "Big Gay Sketch Show" (premieres at 10 p.m. EST on Logo).
