  1. Mellie says:

    Can’t wait to watch Voice and Smash! (Also DVRing HiMYM, 2 Broke Girls and Alcatraz)

  2. Brian says:

    So what happened to the episodes of House and Alcatraz from last week that got bumped for the Daytona 500?

  3. Nico says:

    Wow i couldn’t be less interested in these shows, not that they’re bad but I’m Reality TV averse so i guess it’s just a rerun of Castle for me tonight.

    • amanda says:

      you’re aware that only one of the shows on this list is at all “reality,” right?

      • Nico says:

        Not quite, The Voice is a “reality competition” and the bachelor is a “reality whorefest”. So that would be two “reality” shows that I would rather give myself a concussion than watch.

    • Russ says:

      You should watch Pretty Little Liars. I gets so addicting! probably after 2 or 3 episodes you won’t want to stop watching.

  4. kirads09 says:

    Two episodes of Alcatraz! Doing my happy dance! :)

    DVR: Lizard Lick Towing and Pawn Stars

  5. Liz says:

    Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, and Smash.

  6. Newo says:

    House aired here in Canada so i cant speak to that, but the Alcatraz episode that was missed is rescheduled for March 12 apparently. What that will do for continuity we’ll have to see.

  7. Tori says:

    The Alcatraz episode we missed here in the US there were/are places to find it online if you know where to look. But it is not either of the episodes described above. I have seen it but for those who haven’t I don’t think it’s fair that the continuity will be thrown off. Although it is FOX so I guess we should be happy they are showing it at all.

    • It shouldn’t hurt the continuity since they have been showing some of the other eps out of sequence as well.

      • Tori says:

        From the list I saw this morning this would have been the first week out of order. Now epguides has it fixed to show the episodes airing in the order FOX is showing, which doesn’t mean it was the way the creators were planning on.

  8. Sue says:

    Slow night for a Monday. Only Alcatraz for me.

  9. Vannesa says:

    The Voice, The Bachelor and Smash tonight.
