The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Monday

On TV this Monday: Bachelor Ben chooses the woman with whom he will find true love and spend the rest of his life, the Pretty Little Liars get dolled up, a Psych star receives a RAW deal and more. You’re gonna be out playing Frisbee with the fam tonight (with Daylight Savings and all), but humor me and consider these seven viewing options.

8 pm The Bachelor (ABC) | It’s the season finale, and time for the Final Rose. Will word of Courtney’s treatment of the other bachelorettes rub Ben’s family the wrong way?

8 pm The Voice (NBC) | Battle rounds, Week 2: Encouraged by their coaches and superstar advisers, the artists pair up to sing do-or-die duets. Hey, Duets is the name of Kelly Clarkson’s new singing series! That’s funny.

8 pm Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) | In this season’s penultimate episode, the hunt for answers about what Ali knew leads Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer to a rundown doll hospital. (Seriously, what is TV’s obsession with dolls this winter?!) Meanwhile, Jenna’s surgery brings about more than just the possibility of regaining her sight.

Save the Dates: March’s Big Premieres and Finales!

9 pm Alcatraz (Fox) | An innocent Alcatraz inmate returns… to commit crimes. (That’s what we call irony.)

9 pm WWE Monday Night RAW (USA Network) | Psych‘s “Shawn Spencer” (also known as James Roday) rumbles with “The Miz” and other Superstars in Chillicothe Cleveland, Ohio.

9 pm Being Human (Syfy) | Josh’s best friend returns from the dead; Aidan lends Henry a hand; Sally’s confrontation with the Reaper rocks her to the core.

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

10 pm Smash (NBC) | Ivy faces major vocal issues, while Karen books a side gig at a bar mitzvah. (Sigh, that’s how the end began for the Black Eyed Peas.)

Which of the above is must-see for you? Also, hit Comments to offer your own tune-in suggestions.

  • I’m glad James Roday gave it another go, since he got sick when he and Dule were to do it the first time. Does your wording mean that he’s performing in his psych character, or is he doing RAW as an amped-up version of himself?

  • The Voice and the battle rounds continues and WWE Raw with the rock vs. hip hop battle between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena, leading up to their once in a lifetime match at WrestleMania 28 in Miami (The Rock’s hometown).

  • A rare mention of WWE Raw on TVLine? Maybe Ausiello can hit us up with some WrestleMania spoilers.

  • Lost Girl on Syfy, that’s probably about it for tonight. How strange, Mondays used to make my poor DVR cry.

  • *peeking out* are we safe from any more Daytona races interrupting the Alcatraz episode with Mahershala Ali?

    ******

    Looking forward to Alcatraz *happy dance* ’cause of Ali (love him since his days on the 4400) and Smash. The latter has become strangely addictive. It must be because it reminds me so much of a good Broadway play.

  • Why so many reruns lately?! Smash is it for me tonight. Can’t wait for DWTS to return next week!

  • “On TV this Monday: Bachelor Ben chooses the woman with whom he will find true love and spend the rest of his life” — or the rest of the week, whichever comes first.

  • Wow! There is nothing on tonight. Strange considering Mondays are usually my busiest. When does CBS shows and Castle start new episodes again?

    Comment by Sue – March 12, 2012 01:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Pretty Little Liars for me. Hope the wait is not to long until we hear that Lying Game is renewed! I know I’m going to miss it not being on this week.

    Comment by G – March 12, 2012 02:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The Voice, Smash and Being Human.

  • Pretty Little Liars is the only thing on for me since The Lying Game already had its finale already and The CW and CBS are repeats. Cannot wait for next week’s season finale

  • Bah, looks like nothing will be on my DVR when I get home.

    Comment by Amber – March 12, 2012 08:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Watching The Lying Game from the start. That final reveal last week makes watching the series again as thought we’ve seeing it for the first time. Just the best TV show with THE biggest reveal since, EVER!
