Check in with us daily to see what's new tonight on TV (all times Eastern/Pacific).

Tonight's pick: Men of a Certain Age (10pm, TNT)

Have you all been watching the second season of TNT's Men of a Certain Age? The first season was a huge surprise -- sure, there were great actors involved (the series stars Ray Romano, Andre Braugher, and Scott Bakula), but why would someone in their late 20s enjoy watching a show about 3 friends pushing 50 and going through various changes in their lives? Well, when the storytelling is strong and the acting is superb, you're gonna end up with a great show.

Season two, which wraps up its main run tonight (look for a few more episodes to pop up this spring), has been even better than the first, with a great mix of drama and comedy that makes this show both realistic and engaging. At least where quality is concerned, if not actual eyeballs, co-creator and star Ray Romano has definitely topped what he did for 10 seasons on Everybody Loves Raymond -- sure, the CBS sitcom was a huge hit, but creatively, Romano and Mike Royce (who also worked on Raymond) have created a really special show, that will hopefully see many more seasons to come.

If you'd like to catch up (or just re-watch) the first season of Men of a Certain Age, we've giving away the DVD box set right now. You can also watch the overview of Season 2 below. But be sure to watch the season's 6th episode, which finds the guys hit up Palm Springs for the weekend and end up dealing with the various heavy situations going on in their lives.
