Keck's Exclusives: First Look at The Cape Digital Comic

On Monday, NBC.com will premiere its second digital comic based on its struggling series, The Cape — with a cover designed by famed comic artist Alex Ross.

Tonight's TV Hot List: Monday, Jan. 31, 2011

The Bachelor

The Bachelor
8/7c ABC
Brad seems to prefer complainers (Ashley H. and Michelle) to cheaters (the departed Stacey). But by how much? Michelle had to rappel down the side of a skyscraper for her rose, and Ashley H. had to wait till the very end of the rose ceremony. And tonight, in Las Vegas, she has to go on one of those dreaded two-on-one dates (to Cirque du Soleil's Viva ELVIS show). Her competition: Ashley S., who won the first rose. Brad takes eight gals (including Emily, whose late fiancé was a NASCAR driver) to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. And Shawntel snares the one-on-one date. The good news: It's a shopping spree. Not so much fun: Brad wants to hear about her work. She's an undertaker. — Paul Droesch

Question: I've noticed the last few years that shows that were "summer shows" started bleeding into the fall or having new episodes in the winter. I think season 1 of Damages was one of the first. It started in the summer but did not end until the fall, which made it hard to stay with once the regular shows started up. But now other cable shows are doing this, including splitting their seasons and airing them at other times. The Closer, White Collar, Burn Notice, and now Royal Pains, which started as ... read more
