(Tuesday, September 12th, 2006) It’s a good Tuesday lineup, although a bit of a conflict at 9 p.m. unless you have a TiVo. DaVinci Tech should be entertaining if you feel like getting all medieval. Bad Check should warm the hearts of all those who wish they had their own Checker cab.
All times are central.
