1st Choice:   The Flash.  The Flash returns tonight from its winter hiatus with a brand new plot line and the trailers have looked great for these first few episodes.  “As Barry’s trial for the murder of Clifford DeVoe begins, Iris and Joe must decide how far they are willing to go to keep Barry out of prison.”Photo

2nd  Choice:    America’s Next Top Model.  “The top 15 must walk the lengths of Venice Beach Skate Park. Later, the models join in on Hollywood’s latest trend, the baby boom, as they are tasked to master the beauty of pregnancy” VH-1

3rd Choice:  Ellen’s Game of Games.  I caught an episode of this over the Holidays and it was actually a lot of fun despite me really not wanting to like it.  That’s the power of Ellen for you, I guess. “Contestants play “You Bet Your Wife,” “Dizzy Dash,” “One Eyed Monster,” and “Scary Go Round.” In Dizzy Dash, two contestants are spun back-to-back on a turntable while being asked trivia questions. After the question is read, the spinning stops and they must race to be the first one to answer. The winner of each round moves on to “Know or Go” and the person who wins that game advances to “Hot Hands” for a chance to win a big cash prize.”  NBC
