What's On Tonight: The Amazing Race, Dexter, The Good Wife

TV tips for Sunday, Oct. 7.

The Amazing Race, 8:30 p.m., CBS

A great start! So much better already than last year. Not at all sad to see the lumberjack and the woman he loves go out first. And one of the most colossal mistakes in Race history – Double Amputee Couple telling Cute Couple where the abacus lady was, and then losing to them in a foot race to Phil. They literally gave away a million bucks. Ouch.

Dexter, 9 p.m., Showtime

And they singlehandedly brought the show back from the brink of disaster with one of the most exciting episodes I have ever seen. Watching Dexter watch Deb slowly figure it out – holy smokes. The last 40 seconds? Holy smokes. This season? Holy smokes.

The Good Wife, 9:30 p.m., CBS

First, kudos to CBS for finally, after a million years, figuring out that the overrun of football or golf or whatever annoying sport it is was messing up our DVRs, and simply adjusting their schedule to accommodate the inevitable 30 minute overrun. Heaven forbid these sporting events should start a half hour earlier – or even, dare I say, finish on time – but this is a start. And as for the new season of this, I have two words for you: Nathan! Lane!

The Amazing Race is definitely better than last year. I wish that I would’ve been a fan since the beginning, but a friend that works with me at DISH just told me about it right after the 15th season. I wish I could watch it when it airs, but Sundays are my home poker game night. I rely on my Hopper to catch me up on everything—this time of year it seems to be a lot. I’m just glad that I have a DVR that has plenty of memory for a TV fanatic like me. Now I just have to pick a new team to root for, since my original pick of the lumberjack is gone.
