HDTV Listings for May 9, 2006


What we're watching: Close only counts in hoseshoes, so despite a narrow loss or a blowout, the Mavericks and Cavaliers are both down 1-0 in their second-round matchups, they'll try to get back on track tonight on TNT-HD. If you feel like being scared silly in a ripped-from-the-headlines drama, Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America should be good to keep you inside for weeks.

Also new tonight are back-to-back episodes of The Unit, and season finales for Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars.
