~Primetime Pass~
(a look at what PTR is watching tonight)

Veronica Mars (9 p.m. The CW) - "Of Vice and Men." Veronica (Kristen Bell) is disappointed in Keith (Enrico Colantoni) for his ongoing relationship with his client, Harmony (guest star Laura San Giacomo), who invites him on a romantic weekend getaway. When Veronica retreats to Wallace (Percy Daggs III) and Piz's (Chris Lowell) dorm room for some quiet time, Logan (Jason Dohring) seeks her help in clearing Mercer (guest star Ryan Devlin) of the rape charges, but refuses to give her his alibi

Gilmore Girls (8 p.m. The CW) - "French Twist." Christopher (David Sutcliffe) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) take his daughter GiGi (guest star Nicolette Collier) to visit her mother in Paris. Despite severe jet lag, they manage to have a wonderful, romantic time enjoying the city and each other. Back in Connecticut, Rory (Alexis Bledel) comes to the end of her tenure as Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Daily News and suddenly finds herself unsure of her future.

Friday Night Lights (8 p.m. NBC) - "Homecoming." It's homecoming as alumni reunite, and the team prepares for the undefeated Laribee Lions. Tyra Collette (Adrianne Palicki) and Billy Riggins (Derek Phillips) mix it up as they plan the after game party to end all parties. On the field, Brian Smash Williams (Gaius Charles) feels the pressure when he gets his one chance to impress a college recruiter. Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) quits drinking and focuses everything on the game while the 2000 State Champ quarterback returns to town a hero, but hides the true secrets about his life.
