The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Monday

On TV this Monday: Drs. House and Hart are back seeing patients, another Alcatraz ne’er-do-well goes on the lam, Castle gets a “reality” check and more. We’ve singled out nine programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm House (Fox) | New time slot alert! An Alzheimer’s patient’s unusual symptoms lead the team to unravel a marital conflict between him and his dutiful wife; House and Foreman butt heads; Wilson treats a patient who claims to be in a chaste marriage.

8 pm Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) | Spencer and Hanna grow increasingly concerned that “A” will endanger the men in their lives; Aria goes on a “date” with Holden to hopefully end Ezra’s incommunicado status.

8 pm Gossip Girl (The CW) | Certain people scheme behind Blair’s back to make her bachelorette party a night to remember; Serena and Dan pretend to be dating to protect someone close to them.

Hot Video: Hart of Dixie‘s Rachel Bilson Answers Critics Who Give Her TV Doc a Bad Rap

9 pm Alcatraz (Fox) | Time slot premiere: The team races against time to catch reappeared Alcatraz inmate Kit Nelson, a terrifying child abductor who always returns his victims home – after he’s killed them.

9 pm Hart of Dixie (The CW) | When Zoe discovers that she is a legacy to the Bluebell Belles, Lemon makes it her mission in life to shut her out by putting her through a humiliating initiation; Lavon, with Wade’s help, jumps back into the dating scene; George plots to stop a huge chainstore from building near Bluebell.

9 pm The Lying Game (ABC Family) | On the night of the country club’s Black and White Ball, jealousy and lies start to take their toll on Emma and Ethan; Laurel and Ted reel after they discover the motive behind Justin’s actions; Rebecca and Mads counsel each other on matters of the heart.

9 pm Being Human (Syfy) | Past mistakes come back to haunt Aidan and Josh; Sally flirts with a fun but dangerous new pastime.

 2012 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Getting Axed? What’s on the Bubble?

10 pm Castle (ABC) | When a famous dog trainer is killed, the investigation keeps coming back to charismatic reality-TV star and tabloid darling Kay Cappuccio (played by Hilarie Burton, White Collar). Smallville‘s Justin Hartley also guest-stars, as Kay’s boyfriend.

10 pm Lost Girl (Syfy) | In “Where There’s a Will, There’s a Fae,” Bo’s involvement in the Fae world deepens as she helps out a Will-o-the-Wisp in need. So, the pun-tastic episode title works on multiple levels; I give it an 8.5.

    No new HIMYM?

    Castle and Alcatraz for me tonight then.

    • Nadine says:

      No HIMYM really? They seem to skip a week between new episodes lately. Sigh.

      • Sg.Grant says:

        They almost always do that in January. Then all new episodes for February. Then probably 1 episode for all of March, and maybe another couple in April. Then all new episodes for May. It sucks.

  2. kirads09 says:

    Gave up on House a long time ago. I am so over Dr. Crankypants.

    What I will watch?
    Pawn Stars

  3. Jen says:

    Finally HoD is back!!! I missed Wade!

  4. ihatemondays says:

    Cancel House already, this season is unwatchable.

    Alcatraz and Being Human for me.

  5. Kortney says:

    Can you say “Hilarie Burton, One Tree Hill,” seeing as she’s a “regular” on WC but, ya know, she’s never on it.

  6. Walrus says:

    I liked the first ep of Lost Girl, so I’m gonna catch it again. Although I think the BBC version of Being Human is far superior, I’ll watch that as well. Gonna give Alcatraz another chance to hook me, but I’m not sold yet.

  7. cgh says:

    Castle!!! After the intense sneek peek I can hardly wait till tonight

  8. Pam says:

    I have Alcatraz on my DVR list but it is a bit procedural. However, some of the twists have me intrigued. And Jorge Garcia is a hoot in this.

  9. Fernando says:

    Pretty Little Liars, Hart of Dixie, DVR The Lying Games, Bad Girls Club, n Love Games

  10. Julie says:

    Castle at 8 for me (thank you CTV!) :D

  11. shiremaid says:

    Been waiting too long for this next epi of House. BRING IT ON!

  12. linda says:

    HOUSE!! …finally it is back :)

  13. So sad no 2BG or M&M tonight but at least it will give my DVR a little breather :O)

  14. Scarlett says:

    So glad House is FINALLY back! It’s been great this season… I’ll definitely be watching tonight! :)

  15. Sally says:

    House, yay!!! This season is so much better than the last two, can’t wait for tonight’s episode!

  16. Kyle says:

    I’m done with House. Will watch the season (series?) finale only.
    Alcatraz premiere was good, but I’m afraid we’ll all get tired of its M.O. very soon (every week new bad guy reappears, does bad things to random people and gets caught in the end). Let’s wait and see… hope they prove me wrong.

  17. kim says:

    I’ll be watching House tonight! Can’t wait for “Nobody’s Fault” and “Chase”!! Hugh Laurie, Jesse Spencer and Robert Sean Leonard are awesome this season!

  18. lindsey says:

    CASTLE! PLL, The Lying Game, Hart of Dixie and Alcatraz for me. Thank god for DVR

  19. Jackie says:

    No new “2 Broke Girls” tonight? Guess “castle only then for me tonight.

  20. alyssa897 says:

    Lots of great shows on tonight! I can’t wait for Pretty Little Liars! And by the way, it’s Hanna, not Hannah. Just letting you know! :)

  21. ebowers says:

    How about them Republican debate

  22. guest says:

    Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie and The lying game! Just only watch Justin and Hailire for Castle.

  23. Brandy says:

    Pll, gg, hart of dixie, lying game for sure maybe 2 bgs rerun. Mon. right now are so busy tv wise for me.

  24. Tanya says:

    Lost Girl! Love this show, it doesn’t take itself to seriously and it’s just pure fun entertainment.
    Also Being Human, Castle, and PLL are all must see TV for me.
    Gave up on House last season, sad…used to love that show.

  25. Barbara says:

    Is “Dr. House” still popping pills? Great example isn’t it…..

  26. kevin says:

    No new Hawaii Five-O tonight and next week as well. Hope Fox and Kevin Reilly may have a decision on whether HOUSE will end after eight seasons or get renew for a Season Nine which could be its last and I’m planning on watching Alcatraz On Demand ’cause I’ve always have eyes on Sarah Jones not Jorge Garcia (Hurley from LOST).

  27. Justin says:

    I’ll be watching House, Alcatraz (I really like this show), Being Human, and Lost Girl (I really like this show, too!).

  28. Velvet says:

    Hart of Dixie
    Fear Factor
    Being Human
    Lost Girl.

  29. Chris says:

    Lost Girl is Bo-Delicious!!!!!!
