    90210, jane by design

  2. kirads09 says:

    The River only because I am already invested enough I have to know how this plays out.

    Otherwise, good night for DVR/On Demand catch up.

  3. Kat says:

    I loved “Breaking In” last year and I’m happy to see it coming back but I’m disappointed to see Megan Mullaly. Megan is SO annoying, she just grates on my nerves. I don’t find her entertaining at all!

    Plus, she isn’t necessary. Christian Slater was fine on his own. The show just had a lousy time slot, no promotion and was a midseason entry. FOX is in such a rush to fix something they didn’t stop and think about whether it was broken.

    • kirads09 says:

      I have not watched Breaking In. Did Fox learn nothing from the sad Human Target debaucle and bringing in the character Ilsa Pucci Season 2? Seems like they are doing something similar here. A wealthy woman takes over the company? Hmmm.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      I had similar concerns re: the addition of Mullally as a new boss, but having seen the premiere, I must say it is handled smartly and it works. Plus, all around, it’s a surprisingly strong episode of a show that was fine if never quite a reliable gut-buster.

      • Amanda says:

        Glad to hear that Matt. I loved it last year, but have been really worried about the addition of Mullally and loss of Rosenbaum. I do plan to give it a chance though!

    • Templar says:

      I’m right there with you, Kat. Love Christian Slater, despise Megan Mullally. I can’t see that Turn the Tub Around commercial without muting it.

    • Nikki says:

      I love this show so much that I’m going to give it a chance whether Megan is on it or not. The other characters are great and they’re worth sticking around for.

  4. bigdog5758 says:

    The River and Jane by Design

  5. TV Watcher says:

    If the series lets Mullally off the leash, the move to add her to Breaking In will only help the show that was fairly funny on its own last year.

    When a show does so poorly in the ratings, you have to think the network is going to “shake it up” and I imagine it was her agreement to join the show which was the driving force behind it being brought back from the cancelled abyss late last year.

  6. Bella says:

    Cougar Town, Breaking In, Justified, DVRing Southland.

  7. Spoiler Junkie says:

    New Girl and Justified

  8. Lola says:

    Jane by Design and Switched at Birth.. Nothing else for me tonight.. White Collar is done until the summer and NCIS:LA and Body of Proof have no new episodes tonight!

  9. Stumped! says:

    Ringer, only because I’m committed to see it through. Otherwise, time to catch up on Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl and wash it all with some Dexter DVDs.

  10. kevin says:

    SOUTHLAND (only three episodes left this season). With Parenthood already wrapped up Season Three, the fate of the family drama is still on the horizon and it’s been “on the bubble” like once or twice before.

  11. Kendal says:

    Raising Hope, Switched at Birth, Cougar Town and 90210 – not quite sure why I still bother with that last one!

  12. Amanda says:

    Raising Hope, Cougar Town, New Girl, and Breaking In.

    • Ari says:

      My exact lineup as well. Well, I don’t watch Breaking In, in fact have never even heard of it before today, but the first three shows are also my schedule. Cougar Town is going by way too fast! This is looking like the last season and I want to savor every episode.

  13. Morgan says:

    New Girl. And Ringer, because I have to see how it plays out.

  14. Nadine says:

    Raising Hope, Cougar Town, New Girl, Breaking In. Like the new time slot for Raising Hope.

  15. em says:

    90210, Raising Hope and New Girl.

  16. juan says:

    Cougar Town, S@B, Jane by design, New Girl, and The River.

  17. G says:

    With all the repeats tonight I’m down to just Cougar Town.

  18. Justin says:

    The River, Cougartown, and Breaking In are on my must-watch list tonight.

  19. Kat says:

    Southland and Justified!

  22. Velvet says:

    Last Man Standing
    Cougar Town (maybe)
    New Girl
    Raising Hope
    Breaking In (Let’s see if Megan Mullally can save Christian Slater’s career)

  24. GGMustDie says:

    9-0 & New Girl

  25. Dana says:

    I love Justified and never miss it. I do not watch any of the other shows except Southland. Justified is superb. My significant other watches Ringer – which I could just not get into.

  26. RandomJ says:

    Missing Season 3 Premiere of ‘Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman’ at 10pm on Science…

  27. GeoDiva says:

    Ringer….gotta see my weekly trainwreck!

  28. Charlotte says:

    One of the best shows on TV….SOUTHLAND.
    And I’ll catch New Girl probably. :)

  29. James says:

    I didn’t even recognise Katy Perry in Raising Hope, although looking back on it, she did a great job although could have been let loose in the role a bit more.
    At least it takes away of my opinion of her as ‘Oh, Honey’ in HIMYM ^_^
