Remote Possibilities: 'Shark Tank' & that 'Grimm' volcano

Danielle Desroches and Tracey Noonan pitch the entrepreneurs on "Shark Tank" on their cupcakes-in-a-jar business

I spent last Friday night watching Boston's ABC station, WCVB, online for what turned out to be the best coverage available of the capture of the second suspect in the marathon bombing. On TV, meanwhile, plenty of things were being pre-empted for the the bombing story, including the episode of NBC's "Grimm" in which Portland is threatened with a volcano.

The volcano alert's back on as "Grimm" returns (9 p.m., NBC10) with an episode that was briefly available online until the network decided to air it a week late instead.

But if you saw it, then you might want to see the generally volcano-free "Shark Tank" (9 p.m., 6 ABC), where cupcakes in a jar are among the ideas being pitched this week. (Some of us prefer to apply them directly to our hips, but if others want to keep cupcakes in jars, it's fine with me.)

You may also want to check out:

-- "Rock Center with Brian Williams" (10 p.m., NBC10). Natalie Morales interviews Celeste and Sydney Corcoran, the mother and daughter severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombings.

-- "Happy Endings" (8 and 8:30 p.m., 6 ABC). These two episodes were also pre-empted last week for news coverage.
