Desperate Housewives
9/8c ABC
Just two weeks left in the season, so expect ramped-up wacko-ness from resident homicidal maniacs Eddie and Patrick. Lynette will finally put two and two together about Eddie; and following Patrick's convoluted threat against Danny last week, Angie will run for help... to Gaby? Then there's Sam. He sort of snapped last week, and Bree will offer to pay him to go away, but don't expect him to go too gently. Meanwhile, Mike and Susan have it easy — all they have to worry about is money. — Paul Droesch

Jesse Stone: No Remorse

Watching Tom Selleck reprise his role for the sixth time as the stoic Jesse Stone, who is now the suspended police chief of Paradise, Mass., is like catching up with an old friend you haven't seen in awhile. Yes, Jesse still drinks, still pines for his ex-wife, and still is in trouble with local officials, who may or may not bring him back as chief.  To occupy his time, Jesse signs on as a consultant to investigate a series of seemingly random murders in Boston. He also works behind the scenes to nab a convenience store robber who killed a cashier in Paradise. — Tim Holland
