It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, 8 p.m., ABC
You know what gets me every time? When Lucy goes out and gets Linus and tucks him into bed. Every. Time.
Prime Suspect, 10 p.m., NBC
People! I am reading that this is not doing that great in the ratings. This upsets me. It makes me want to occupy … something. Why? Because it is good! Not only is it good because the cases are pretty interesting and off beat but it is good because Maria Bello is playing an actual woman with actual flaws. In body, mind and soul. She is among the most real female characters I have seen since … Maude! And the ensemble group in the squad room is quite good also, and there is some really strong gallows humor in every episode. Watch!

I wasn’t sure how I was going to cope with the loss of my beloved DS Matty, but it has been OK. The new guy is decent and the story around Ronnie and his grief over Matt’s death coupled with his old alcoholism issues continuing to bubble to the surface has been terrific.
