    New Territory from Carlos Mencia?

    New original material or new material he’s stolen from others?

  2. fernando says:

    So happy Desperate Housewives and Pan Am are back but I know most likey Pan Am will have its wrost rating tomorrow, since its been gone for three weeks a lot of people might forget when it comes back.

  3. Brad says:

    No Dexter on the list again? Are you mad at the show or not liking this season or something?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      DEXTER has been on the list 9 out of the past 11 weeks (including 3 out of the past 4). You must be thinking of a different website ;)

      • Brad says:

        I just meant maybe you didn’t like the last two episodes because I know it wasn’t on the list last week or this week, but I can see that maybe you’re just trying to share the love with some other good television!

        • Brad says:

          I just went back and checked my facts, Dexter was on the list last week, I guess I remembered wrong, but I’ll blame it on the fact that I read it a week ago. I apologize, Matt, keep up the good work.

  4. GK says:

    Dexter and Neverland!

  5. mdaily says:

    Once Upon a Time, The Good Wife, Dexter and Homeland. Boy, do you ever have me intrigued about Homeland. I can hardly wait for tonight’s episode. Sunday’s are a great TV night!

    • Sarah says:

      mdaily, you and I have nearly the same Sunday line up, though I’ll be watching The Good Wife tomorrow and my other 9pm show is Leverage. I love Sundays. I’ll be sad when Dexter and Homeland end (yay for both being renewed for next year though).

    • tvaddict says:

      I will be watching the same thing! My Sunday is a little less crowded since The Walking Dead and Talking Dead are on hiatus

  7. Christopher says:

    Dexter has been extremely sub-par this season. As it was last season. Thank you for removing it from the list. I’m so mad at the show.

  8. fotreya says:

    Once Upon a Time¡

  9. Tim says:

    Hell on Wheels should be on here too.

  10. Juliab. says:

    Hell on Wheels is on my list for tonight too. As well as Once Upon a Time and the Good Wife.

  11. Tasha says:

    Homeland and Once. I’m glad they’ll be focusing on Snow and James again, I think that’s when the show is at its best. The Cinderella episode was pretty bad.

  12. kevin says:

    AMAZING RACE and its final four and PAN AM finally returns after a two week absence but with the retro drama heading towards the New Year, looks like it’s either going to be “on the bubble” or could join the likes of CHARLIE’S ANGELS and PLAYBOY CLUB among others in the cancellation block.

  13. nick says:

    Will ‘Neverland’ be on in Canada?

  14. CastleBuffySVU says:

    CSI: Miami is on tonight too, right? It shows that on the Wikipedia page..

    • Matt Webb Mitovich, Editor-at-Large says:

      Yes, CSI: MIAMI is on tonight. The TVLine-Up does not by design list every new episode of every show every week.

  15. Lynn says:

    Hell On Wheels should be on there! That is what I’m watching tonight.

  16. King says:

    I love Sundays! The Amazing Race, Dexter, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, The Next Iron Chef. I’ll try to watch Leverage because of The Office.

  17. Winnie says:

    Can you make an episode of The Walking Dead magically appear?

    That Larry King special sounds intriguing. Hmmm…to watch or to let a weekly clip show/Internet recappers do the work for me…

  18. kirads09 says:

    Watching Neverland
    DVR Once Upon A Time

  19. S says:

    watching The Good Wife. Actually wouldn’t mnd Alicia going to a different firm. Bring in fresh characters.

    The part of Amazing Race I see when Good Wife starts late is more than enough. don’t care who wins.

    Enjoying Once Upon A Time more than expected

  20. juan says:

    Yay, Pan am and Desperate Housewives back even if only for a while, will also watch OUAT. good night.
