On the previous day we saw The Mentalist and Gilmore Girls score victories over Nikita and The OC and move into a third round battle against one another. The Mentalist has now defeated Chuck and Nikita, and continues to impress and surprise with its strong performances. It now stands a real chance of making the final eight.
Today we have the Golden Globe winning Homeland taking on the ratings behemoth of NCIS in a battle that will be tough for both parties. We also have Prison Break and Arrested Development calling for their very different fan bases to get them the support they need to face a stern test against one of the current shows also competing today.
