Sandbar Block Party to celebrate anniversary, new sub shop

The fifth annual Sandbar Block Party will celebrate the beach-themed bar's 24th anniversary and the opening of the new Sandbar Sub Shop location at 745 New Hampshire St. Lawrence-formed indie band Cowboy Indian Bear will perform before the Grammy-nominated The Fabulous Thunderbirds, a Texas-based, blues-rock group formed in 1974.

Tune In Tonight: CNBC doesn't stand out with 'Crowd Rules'

Call me confused. I’m frequently stumped when a cable network deviates from its original purpose to pursue generic reality shows, readily available elsewhere. The newest CNBC offering is “Crowd Rules” (8 p.m.) a show so unabashedly unoriginal, it just might work. Imagine the set from “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” the music from “The Apprentice” and the general thrust of “Shark Tank” and you’re getting close.

Tune In Tonight: 'Nature' brings us back to doe

According to poll figures I just made up, 73 percent of homeowners are obsessed about keeping squirrels out of their bird feeders and keeping deer from eating their vegetables, flowers and shrubs. Tonight’s “Nature” (7 p.m., PBS) will shed no light on the eternal battle between man and squirrel, but “The Private Life of Deer” is illuminating.

Tune In Tonight: ABC offers 'new' Britcom import

The television season may be nearing its end, but new “midseason” replacements keep arriving. ABC presents “Family Tools” (7:30 p.m.), a contrived fish-out-of-water tale about a hapless adult son, Jack (Kyle Bornheimer), forced to take over his family’s home improvement business after his father, Tony (J.K. Simmons, “The Closer”), has a heart attack. The good news is that this is not a “Home Improvement” knockoff. The bad news is that the good news stops there.

Tune In Tonight: Can 'Nashville' find an audience in time?

Despite being the best, or at least the best-reviewed, new show of the season, “Nashville” (9 p.m., ABC) has seen its ratings steadily decline since midseason. Nothing kills a soapy melodrama like asking viewers to return in three weeks to see what happens next, followed by another two-week hiatus.

Tune In Tonight: 'Nature' finds 'eels' beyond our grasp

Hard science takes a backseat to poetic meditation on the known and unknowable on the “Nature” (7 p.m., PBS) presentation of “The Mystery of Eels.” The documentary is narrated by artist and author James Prosek (”Trout: An Illustrated History”), whose fascination with eels grew after visiting Ray Turner, the proprietor of Delaware Delicacies near Hancock, N.Y.
