If you’re trying to get away from political news tonight, television is definitely not the place to turn. Tonight’s programming leaves much to be desired (other than news), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t at least a few TV gems amongst the bevy of political punditry.

Covert Affairs has Annie struggling to find someone to trust; Ink Master takes the contestants into the woods; Sons of Anarchy finds Jax fishing for the truth; Flashpoint deals with computer hacking – and (not that) much more…
