What's On: The Outlaw Jimmy Smits

JimmySmits225.jpgIt's a big night of debuts and finales on TV tonight -- Survivor returns, Top Chef: Just Desserts rocks your palette, America's Got Talent and Big Brother conclude, and a stirring new drama called Outlaw offers Jimmy Smits (and Jesse Bradford!) a meaty role to dig into. We preview it all after the jump.

Outlaw [NBC, 10 PM]

It may be a procedural, but Outlaw's set-up is unique enough to warrant extra attention: Judge Cyrus Garza (Smits) resigns from the Supreme Court to handle controversial law cases across the country. In the debut episode, he frees a hopeless client and Jesse Bradford puts on his sho cute serious face.

America's Got Talent [NBC, 8 PM]

Prince Poppycock earned serious disapproval from judge Piers Morgan yesterday, but will that underdog energy help him outpace the fantastic Michael Grimm tonight?

Survivor: Nicaragua [CBS, 8 PM]

Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson competes this season as part of the "over 40" tribe, and he'll have to beat out a tribe full of "under 30" upstarts to receive the big check from Jeff Probst at season's end. Hey, if Sandra can do it twice, why can't he reign once?

Big Brother [CBS, 9 PM]

The good people of America want Lane to win, but Hayden may just walk off with the victory in the series finale tonight. As for Enzo, we hope his clownish ways earn him a third-place finish. In fact, Movieline's own Julie Miller has threatened to "eat her tongue" if he wins. Not as alluring as a naked Sofia Vergara sprint, but we'll take it.

Top Chef: Just Desserts [Bravo, 11 PM]

Following tonight's Top Chef finale (where a sick Angelo may not be able to compete), stick around for Gail Simmons' spinoff series featuring a bunch of dessert whipper-uppers. In the first challenge, the chefs must impress famed chocolatier Jacques Torres.

    "The fantastic Michael Grimm?" Who is paying YOU to make that comment? Mike Grimm will come in 4th. He isn't awful but he only sings covers and not all that well. Prince Poppycock is the most talented person on the show.

    I watched the first half of Outlaw tonight and it was a epic phailure. Not only that, the premise was incredibly offensive pure Left-wing propaganda. I guess Hollywood missed the memo that the Left is in the doghouse in September 2010. Jimmy Smits left television to pursue a movie career that never happened, and has come crawling back obese and old. Hopefully this show gets killed before Smits feels the need to bare his fat ass on it for old times sake.
