On your TV this Tuesday: Glee goes all the way, Raising Hope‘s Burt and Virgina go there, SOA goes for broke, and more. As a supplement to TVLine’s original feature stories, here are 11 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm NCIS (CBS) | In Part 1 of a “heart-wrenching” two-week arc, the team uncovers a discrepancy with DNA remains when investigating the crash of a military plane that had been transporting caskets. Mark Harmon’s son, Sean, plays younger Gibbs in flashbacks, while Jaime Ray Newman (Eureka) begins an arc as a Navy chaplain. (Read much more about it here.)
