A neighborhood slaying puts Allison and her family on the defensive. In the wake of the murder of her neighbor (Jonathan Silverman), our matriarchal medium springs into action, installing a high-tech security system in her home. But that's when a bizarre Kubrickian drama plays out. Straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Allison comes to believe this cutting-edge alarm system has a mind of its own and is actually communicating with young Marie. Dub this one "2010: A Case Oddity." Meanwhile, eldest daughter Ariel sees dead people: She encounters a ghost who might be able to help her attend a coveted college.

A top-notch cast is the main reason to give this Jerry Bruckheimer-produced medical drama, which takes place in a Miami trauma unit, a look. Jeremy Northam stars as a former military surgeon newly arrived in Miami from Baltimore. He's thrown into action in the intense pilot when the unit's chief (Andre Braugher) inexplicably walks off the job during an operation. Rounding out the superb cast are Mike Vogel, Lana Parrilla, Elisabeth Harnois and Omar Gooding. While the series doesn't break any new ground, its compelling, likable characters should provide viewers with sufficient reasons to return to this lively unit.

It's a big night for short-track speed skating, so, of course, it's a big night for Apolo Ohno. "I'm an old man at 27," he claims, "but I just love this sport." Tonight he'll try to re-create his 2006 gold-medal performance in the 500-meter sprint; and anchor the U.S. team in the wild-and-wooly 5,000-meter relay. The women short-track skaters are in action as well, with Katherine Reutter (who comes from the same hometown as speed skating legend Bonnie Blair) the top hope for the U.S. Heading outdoors, the big event this evening is the women's slalom, with Lindsey Vonn making her final Vancouver appearance, and attempting to improve on her 14th place finish in Torino. "My work ethic is so much better now," she says. "It's given me more passion." On the track, it's four-man bobsled runs, with Steve Holcomb and his "Night Train" sled the team to beat. Also today are the men's ice hockey semis (on NBC this afternoon and CNBC this evening), and the women's curling final (CNBC tonight).
