HDTV Listings for August 21, 2006


What we're watching: The fall television season is officially under way as Fox premieres a new season of Prison Break and a new series, Vanished, tonight. Apparently the convicts have finally escaped on Prison Break which should keep things interesting, while Vanished combines CSI & Without a Trace while following a single case through the whole season. Weeds, Saved, The Closer and of course Monday Night Football are also in attendance tonight, but we should also mention HBO is airing the first half of Spike Lee's: When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts, focusing on the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
