    Flashpoint and white collar for me

    as for the State of the Union Address all it is going to put the middle class down even more

  2. Jarrod says:

    I love how good 90210 is going to be tonight. This is the best season ever of the show. I can’t wait for Adrianna to find out the truth! So good!

  3. kirads09 says:

    White Collar

  4. lipsticksocialism says:

    the Obama mention is redundant, but kind of awesome ;)

  5. Jane says:

    White Collar for sure. Maybe 90210 but just to check out Nial Matter to stave off Eureka withdrawal.

  6. Jeff says:

    …the hell?!

    Where’s “Justified”?!

  7. fernando says:

    90210 and Jane By Design, I am sad theres no Body of Proof.

  8. Dreamrose says:

    That episode summary of Flashpoint is misleading – Toth wasn’t demanding Parker’s resignation. The piece of paper they were arguing over in “Priority of Life” is Parker’s suspension, which would seriously harm his career. And, personally, I want to smack Sam and Jules upside the head for putting Parker in the situation to begin with. The description of the fire captain’s actions is flawed, as well. Also, I’m not sure you can call the episode “unaired,” as it aired in Canada on December 13.

      I’m pretty sure TVline is an American website.

      • Dreamrose says:

        The site being American notwithstanding, calling the episode “unaired” makes it sound like it wasn’t part of the regular season for some reason, that they’re airing it as some sort of bonus, like cut scenes as special features on a DVD. As I understand it, “Slow Burn” is merely the season finale of Flashpoint season 4. Strictly speaking, calling it “unaired” isn’t wrong, just confusing. Sorry if my own original post was a bit ambiguous in that regard.

        Happily, Flashpoint has been renewed for a fifth season.

  9. Artem says:

    White Collar! Liz Gillies is a guest star! And she is probably the main reason people watch Victorious on Nickelodeon

  11. Hibsta says:

    Justified for me. This is looking like a terrific season

  12. Brandy says:

    90210, jane by design.

  13. Velvet says:

    Dirty Jobs
    White Collard
    Jamie’s American Road Trip

  15. The WB Frog says:

    Won’t be watching the Prez tonight as he will be saying the same thing as the last four years. Ready to hear some new ideas. Bring out the Mitt!

  16. Bad Breaker says:

    White Collar, Southland and Justified for me.

  17. gcem says:

    SOUTHLAND! period

  18. Nicole says:

    I thought that Parenthood wasn’t taking any breaks between now and the finale?

  19. Toto says:

    i believe the State Address is on an hour earlier than your schedule shows. My guide lists it at 8 EST., 7 C.

  20. Hannah says:

    A great night to keep the TV off. Nothing good is on.

  21. Drew says:

    “Blah, blah, blah, Bush’s fault. Blah, blah, blah, turning around. Blah, blah, blah, if you reelect me, you’ll get to see the plan I’ve REALLY been working on but it’s a secret right now. Blah, blah, blah, after my multi-million dollar vacations next month…”
