    “Tang faces more questions about the shooting, which could determine whether she gets promoted to sergeant.” given that L.L. is a guest star and a not a regular, I’m pretty sure the answer is clear.

  2. Jrs says:

    Schmidt! Schmidt! Schmidt!

  3. sarah says:

    Really!!!! No mention of Ringer?!?

    • Lee says:

      Sarah, if you look carefully, you’ll notice a link to the featured interview with Ioan Gruffudd under the mention of Breaking In at 9:30.

  4. kevin says:

    SOUTHLAND. Only two episodes left this season and we wish if TNT is going to do the right thing on renewing the cop drama for a Season Five.

  5. Dana says:

    Body of Proof even it looks like this show is as dead as the people on Hunt’s table. I hope they wrap the season like a series finale.

  6. AMY says:

    John McBain, to Port Charles (yet sadly sans Natalie). HAHAHA you’re funny!

  7. Sourabh says:

    Justified first, then Cougar Town, New Girl, Breaking In, Key and Peele, Tosh.0, Raising Hope and Ringer, unless any of them are on a break.

  8. Vannesa says:

    Body Of Proof…hopefully get to see Jamie Bamber some more. ;) :D

  9. Chris says:

  15. Justin says:

    The River, Courgartown and Breaking In are on my radar tonight.

  17. Juan says:

    Cougar town for sure, the river, body of proof, new girl and switched at birth

  18. Lani says:

    No love for Switched at Birth ?!!?

    Well I will be watching Switched at Birth and Body of Proof…Nothing else

    • Melissa says:

      Lani – you and I will be watching Switched at Birth. This show is so good. People need to start taking ABC Family seriously. It’s doing a pretty good job with original programming. However, I still miss Greek and 10 Things though.

      • Lani says:

        Melissa, just reading this! ITA!!! I feel the same about USA shows as well. Most cable TV shows are better than some of the network shows!

  19. G says:

    Cougar Town!

  20. TheBeach says:

    Cougar Town, Justified, Southland

  21. Tori says:

    Cougar Town, Breaking In, Justified.

  22. Tee says:

    Well the TV will probably be taken over by hockey tonight. But the DVR will nab Switched at Birth and Justified.

  23. Sg.Grant says:

    Something about Doomsday Preppers is just addicting. You should add it to the list.
