The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Monday

On your TV this Monday: Dan’s book elicits much Gossip, things get literally and figuratively steamy in Bluebell, and “exes” mark the spot for one broke girl and Five-0‘s Chin Ho. As but a supplement to TVLine’s original features and reporting, here are 11 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Gossip Girl (The CW) | Dan comes clean to everyone about his book, hoping for their support. But for Blair and Louis, the tome could have significant repercussions.

8 pm How I Met Your Mother (CBS) | Ted invites the gang’s skepticism-slash-cynicism by booking a date with a girl he didn’t first vet via Internet snooping (or as I call it, “Face-stalking”). My handy tip: If she’s jutting her tongue out while making rock-n-roll fingers in every Facebook/Lockerz photo, pass.

8 pm The Sing-Off (NBC) | The 10 finalists this week pull from songs on their “guilty pleasures” – not that anyone wants to see a half-dozen harmonizers moaning “I Touch Myself.”

8 pm Terra Nova (Fox) | While Taylor & Co. are wary of taking in an orphaned Sixer seeking asylum, cutie guard boy (finally!) reveals he has feelings for Jim’s daughter Maddie.

8 pm The Lying Game (ABC Family) | It’s the fall finale, and Sutton returns home with revenge on her mind. Oh honey, that is totally Emily Thorne’s thing. I believe “payback” is still available, though!

8:30 pm 2 Broke Girls (CBS) | The gals throw a ’90s-themed party at the diner to raise money for their cupcake business. One unanticipated guest: Caroline’s mega-rich ex-boyfriend.

8:30 pm Monday Night Football (ESPN) | The Jets host the Dolphins, instantly evoking my childhood memories and Dad and I watching Namath face off against Griese.

Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley Declares: ‘Blair Is Dan’s Soulmate!’

9 pm Hart of Dixie (The CW) | In perhaps the freshman drama’s most entertaining episode to date, a Bluebell heat wave has the town sizzling in more ways than one, as tensions run almost as high as a few libidos. There is bountiful damp and/or drenched flesh on display, especially for those who appreciate guys with hip cuts (while the way Rachel Bilson wears one particular dress dares the show to jump to cable). Count on at least two would-be couples to lean in for what are poised to be incendiary kisses.

9 pm House (Fox) | When Wentworth Miller checks in as a patient, who do you call for a consult? Why, Dr. Sara Tancredi of course! But since she’s busy fending off zombies, we’ll make do with another pretty former prison doc,Jessica Adams (new series regular Odette Annable). Also: Thirteen’s number is up.

House‘s Hugh Laurie Opens Up About Olivia Wilde’s Exit: ‘There Is Great Sadness’

10 pm Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) | The team receives more bad news about Kono; Chin Ho reconnects with his ex-fiancee (returning guest star/24 alum Reiko Aylesworth).

10 pm Castle (ABC) | This is the one where Castle is studded out to work his charm on an art insurance investigator played by The Killing‘s Kristin Lehman, while Jessica Tuck (True Blood, and Nathan Fillion’s kinda-sorta One Life to Live half-sister) guests as a museum benefactor under suspicion.

    I am pumped for Terra Nova. When I saw the previews for this show, I thought it was going to be dumb. But after watching the premiere, I am became instantly hooked! Anyone that enjoys action and some mystery would love this show.
    Also pumped for Hawaii Five-O. Very underrated show.

  2. scooterbeanbag says:

    I look forward to 2 Broke Girls the most on Monday nights and I’m usually not that accepting of freshmen dramas, but they won me over very early.

  3. RealChrisWilde says:

    The Lying Game !!!!!! Fall Finale tonight, it’s the best show on TV this year! A must to watch

  4. Kate says:

    I can’t wait for Castle. A jealous Beckett should create some fun TV!

  5. D says:

    Just by the clips previewed, I’ve got a good feeling House will be great tonight. Hopefully Terra Nova won’t put me to sleep and miss it.

  6. Snapy says:

    LOVING the shirtless pic of Wilson Bethel! Loved him as Ryder on Y&R. Wish he would do gay porn!

  7. Lillyg says:

  10. Juliana says:

    One of those “incendiary kisses” in Hart Of Dixie better be between Zoe and Wade or i’ll be seriously disappointed!

  11. Brandy says:

    Lying Game, 2 Broke Girls, Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie. Great night of tv- my favorite besides VD and Revenge plus PLL this Wed.

    Wentworth Miller!!!!! Terra Nova = disappointment, I kinda like Castle so I’ll watch it after House.

    It’s football for me and I’ll record Terra Nova. Anybody know when last weeks episode will repeat so I can see it?

  16. Samantha says:

    gossip girl, the lying game, how I met your mother, hart of Dixie, and castle.

  17. SK says:

    I have to work late, so I guess I’ll DVR How I Met Your Mother and watch it when my friends are finished with the The Lying Game finale. As usual, I’ll probably DVR Castle for tomorrow.

  23. Beth says:

    I’m so excited for Hart of Dixie and How I Met Your Mother tonight! Rachel Bilson is doing a great job in this new show of hers, and the cast of How I Met Your Mother is always the best. Be sure to check out my thoughts on the episodes after the fact or see more of what I thought of past episodes by visiting

  24. lily says:

    i wish these shows were more spread out, all the best shows are on mondays. its super hard tring to watch gossio girl, how i met your mother, lying game, house, and hart of dixie at once…and yet tuesday, wednesday, and thurdays have absolutely nothing, except vampire diaries of course

  25. fernando says:

    I for sure will not miss Hart Of Dixie, I am loving this show, its very cute.

    Also will be cathcing The Lying Games finale and Bad Girls Club, gotta love Judi Jai.

  26. Natalie says:

    Meh. “Castle” and “Two Broke Girls” and “Two and a Half Men” perhaps. Those are the only ones that sound good to me.

  27. Hanna says:

    So glad this is Thirteen’s last episode! Olivia Wilde is so annoying.

  28. Nicky C says:
