Good afternoon, everyone!

This is Garrett Godwin, and I`m here to tell you What`s On Tonight!

On FOX tonight at 8pm is an all-new episode of House, in which our brilliant yet cranky doc (Hugh Laurie) reluctantly goes to his father`s funeral.  But will he reveal a family secret that is 40 years overdue?  Then on CBS is NCIS.  For five years, we`ve come to met and know Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), and now we can get to meet his father (Ralph Waite, The Waltons).  But going home isn`t going to be easy for Gibbs, when he and his team investigate a murder that leads to his hometown. 

Then at 10pm on NBC is an all-new Law & Order: SVU, with award-winning actress Ellem Burstyn guest-starring as Stabler (Christopher Meloni)`s mother, when a case involves the cop`s daughter Kathleen.  Also is the season finale of A&E`s The Cleaner, a new Without A Trace, and the season premiere of ABC`s Eli Stone.  The series, about a lawyer who may be a prophet, starts off its sophomore season with Sigourney Weaver, Katie Holmes, and musician Seal. 

And at 11pm on SOAPnet is the start of the two-part season finale of General Hospital: Night Shift, in which Patrick (Jason Thompson)`s choice could be GH in jeopardy.  Meanwhile, coma-induced Robert (Tristan Rogers) gets a visit from old friends of the 80s that includes Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary), and they`re there to save his life.

And that is What`s On Tonight, so thanks for joining me.  But don`t forget to check out The American Perspective with Judyth Piazza as well as the latest Hot Copy with Del Marbrook -- right here at the SOP.

I`m Garrett Godwin, and I have to Go Now, so I`ll see you later.
