    Ringer all the way! It’s finally back and Siobhan is in town! So excited… Hopefully it does well in the ratings

  2. gina says:

    Sammy and Ben! Looking forward to their latest adventures on Southland.

  3. Sue says:

    Wow!!! There is nothing on tonight…I guess I will Pay Per View a movie…

  4. kirads09 says:

    White Collar

    No new NCIS or NCIS LA :(

  5. Marcus says:

    Glee being on a “TV Worth Watching” list makes me doubt the quality of the rest of the list.

  6. Fernando says:

    90210 Ringer (welcome back) n Jane by design , now I know there’s no Body Of Proof tonight but is parenthood back on tonight

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Nope — with sweeps launching on Thursday, all scripted programs on NBC, ABC and CBS are in repeat mode. – Management

  7. Kendal says:

    Glee and Raising Hope for me this evening. I may or may not record 90210.

  8. jess says:

    can’t wait for RINGER!!!!!!!!!!!! so excited!!!

  9. thefirstmrshummel says:

    Looking forward to Glee tonight, though I can tell from spoilers that some parts will either have me tearing my hair or or laughing hysterically (and not in the way the writes intended). However, Smooth Criminal looks amazing, there’s one spoiled dance number that I’m salivating to see, and I’m sure all the Grant Gustin screen time will make me one happy gleek!

  10. Toto says:

    Owing to the above mentioned abundanza of crap, I’m opting for a nostalgic time watching Matthew Broderick in War Games on AMC followed by a fresh White Collar.

  11. Danny says:

    I hope “90210” and “Ringer” get renewed.

  12. LeeAnn says:

    Really? No White Collar? It’s the only thing I care about on Tuesdays other than NCIS!

    • Mike says:

      I don’t get the strategy either but apparently, when they reference a show in a link, they don’t reference it again in black text and aligned with everything else. My eyes are trained to ignore those links because they look like advertisements. lol Then again, I don’t watch White Collar, so this didn’t bug me too much. :-)

  13. Brandy says:

    90210, jane by design.

  14. sarah says:

    So 90210 is not mentioned…..

  15. kevin says:


  16. Bmp says:

    Best show you’re not watching: SOUTHLAND. Excellent show.
    Also Justified, Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens is great!

  17. Erika says:

    Dance Moms

    I like that Tuesdays don’t have too many of my shows :)

  18. Velvet says:

    New Girl
    Raising Hope
    White Collar
    Dirty Jobs
    Jamie’s American Road Trip

  19. Tuffie L Rue says:

    I am looking forward to Cougar Town in 2 WEEKS! New Girl and Raising Hope tonight!

  20. Linda says:

    White Collar, my first and only choice.

  21. l says:

    So excited! Glee, new girl, and raising hope!!!!!

  22. Mindy says:

    Really excited for Southland, Justified and White Collar. Wish they weren’t all on at the same time.

  23. BRETT says:

    Isn’t Pretty Little Liars on tonight?

  24. gcem says:


  25. Debaloo says:

    New Girl and Raising Hope followed by White Collar while DVR’ing both Southland and Justified.

  26. Emgee says:


  27. Justin says:


  28. CandyMaize says:

    Glaring omission – “White Collar”.
    But you also missed “Switched At Birth” a great show that airs on ABCFamily.

  29. Cecelia says:

    Ringer!!! Can’t wait.

  30. Amber says:

    You’ve made my day, TVLine, I totally forgot there was a new Justified on tonight! I’m pretty excited for Southland too, but Justified is my true happy place.

    I’ll probably watch Glee, though I already hate myself for saying that. Thriller was the first album I ever owned as a kid. And I was literally listening to it on vinyl, just to show my age. As much as I hate Glee these days, I thought they did a pretty good job with the Madonna episode, another 80s pop hero of mine. But I am kinda scared to watch tonight’s episode, who knows how they could butcher the music of MJ. They have not had a great streak with me lately. Maybe I’ll just listen to the HIStory CD instead.
