Best Bets on TV tonight


“The biggest loser” (8 p.m., NBC): It’s time to lay off the Twinkies. Contestants on “The Biggest Loser” get stoked when they learn how to earn immunity for the week: by being the first to lose two percent of their body fat.

“LOST” (9 p.m., ABC): As the final season of this still-riveting plane-crash mystery winds down, each week brings us closer to the answers we crave — but also closer having to bid a sad goodbye. Better savor it while we can. And this week’s episode promises a juicy story line that focuses on the return of a long- missing and very popular character: Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick), the Scottish wanderer now being mysteriously referred to as “the package.” Let’s hope we get all the intel on how his off-island life has gone, and let’s really hope we get some scenes with his beloved Penny (Sonya Walger).

“The Good Wife” (10 p.m., CBS): On “The Good Wife,” you can cut the sexual tension between Alicia and Will with a knife. But they need to get it under control as they defend a college student accused of killing her roommate while under the influence of a sleep aid.
