8 pm Glee (Fox) | Will enlists the glee club to help him sweep Emma off her feet; Becky sets her sights on Artie; Finn makes an announcement about his life plans after high school that surprises everyone.

  1. Probably just watching Netflix and catching up on DVRed stuff tonight.

    • Big Coat Boy says:

      Please tell me suggestions on what you are watching on Oldflix? If you have a DVR, cable, and internet, it’s tough to find something on there? I have rarely found anything I am excited about in the past couple of years. Though I was pumped when they were showing Tucker and Dale vs Evil. A good comedy.
      I’ll be renting Abduction on Redbox and catching one of the 4 back-to-back showings of Justificado. And thanks Lisa for the reminder of Jaime’s American Trip

  2. Todd Wilson says:

    Don’t forget a new episode of White Collar tonight at 10pm EST as well!

  3. Jessica says:

    ou, tonight is unusually busy for me! 90210, Glee, Parenthood, White Collar! Definitely most excited for White Collar though.

  4. Ari says:

    Ooh! Justified! Just finished rewatching the second season this weekend, can’t wait to see what Boyd is up to this year!

  5. Bill H says:

    Out of all the “shows” you list, Justified is the only one to watch. To bad for me that I work at that time, thank you iTunes.

  6. TVAddictionFTW says:

    JUSTIFIED!!!!! Hells yeah!!! ………….. and New Girl

  7. kirads09 says:

    White Collar for me.

  8. Psyched for tonight’s premiere of Justified. Looking forward to covering the third season live now that the marathon of S. 2 is all over. Bring on the new baddies!

  9. Victoria says:

    Justified, Southland, and White Collar all back on at 10pm tonight? Will probably watch White Collar and catch up the rest tomorrow.

  10. Brandy says:

    90210, jane by design for sure, raising hope maybe

  11. MoxieSue says:

    Can’t believe you left White Collar of the list! Tsk, tsk, tsk…

    • When they link to special articles about a show, they don’t list it like all the other shows, which is the case with White Collar above. (The link is under Raising Hope.) Personally I think it’s a little confusing, because the links look like ads and are easily missed. Extra articles are great, but putting the link like that also doesn’t solve the immediate question of “What is on and at what time?”

  12. Jenna says:

    8pm: switched at birth. 9-10pm: new girl and raising hope. then white collar at 10. busy night!

  13. gcem says:

    SOUTHLAND! Nuff said.

  14. bw says:

    Southland and Lucy Liu? Hell yeah!

  15. kevin says:

    SOUTHLAND is back. :) Planning to watch PARENTHOOD On Demand. :)

  16. Jill says:

    My two Tuesday night shows did not make the list, but that doesn’t in any way not make me want to watch them any less: “Switched at Birth” and new season of “White Collar.”

    And I’m a sports fan, so any ACC basketball is always Must See TV as Florida State and Maryland play tonight. My love of watching sports, which for me is Reality TV, precludes me from filling up on mindless what I call quasi-Reality TV and other non-worthy shows.

  17. l says:

    new girl
    raiding hope!!

  18. Wait... says:

    Did I somehow miss an episode of 90210? Wasn’t Liam clinging to life in the street the last time we saw him?

  19. TW says:

    Well I guess we now know that Liam doesn’t die.

  20. Lisa says:

    Last Man Standing
    Dirty Jobs
    White Collar
    Jamie’s American Road Trip

  21. Julia says:

    White Collar! Can’t wait!

  22. Che says:

    Raising Hope People!!!

  23. Dave says:

    I’ll be watching Glee. Does Unforgettable not come on tonight?

  24. MGL says:

    Justified totally! Cannot wait.

  25. Nadine says:

    Raising Hope and Body of Proof.

  26. Pam says:

    A lot on for me tonight. New Girl! Raising Hope! Justified!!! SouthLAnd!!!!

  27. Justin says:


  28. Angela says:

    Switched at Birth. One of the best shows out there. I’ll also be tuning in to White Collar.

  29. Emgee says:

    How is White Collar not on this list? It’s the only new show worth watching tonight.

  30. fernando says:

    90210, Jane By Design , Body of Proof, DVR ParentHood

  31. Mick says:

    Switched at Birth is about 20x better than 90210 sad to say I jumped off that boat a couple of seasons ago

  32. Ashley says:

    Raylan. The hat. Boyd. Ava. Winona. The Hat. Oh, yeah. I’m so ready for Justified’s return. Anyone know where I can find the recipe for Apple Pie?

  33. Emgee says:


  34. JP says:

    White Collar!!!! Yayyyyy!!!! *Kermit the Frog dance* (yep, I’m just a bit excited for this one…)

  35. CJ says:

    Okay, so if it turns out that miserable blind item ISN’T someone from House, my money is now on Zeek Braverman. That would suck.

  36. Tikkanen says:

    I’m watching Body of Proof and the NY Rangers vs Nashville Predators (NHL). Nice to see such great casting on Body of Proof instead of the typical ageism seen on other shows.

  37. Toni says:

    Damn – when setting my DVR this morning 90210 was listed as a repeat so my series didn’t pick up on it. :( Guilty pleasure series return will be missed.

  38. Amber says:

    Oh shoot, did Southland premiere tonight? It didn’t record on my DVR. Grrr, what happened there? At least I got Justified recorded. If that hadn’t been on my DVR box when I got home, the cable box would have been taking a trip out the window.
