The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Monday

On TV this Monday: Alcatraz closes its doors (for now), The Secret Life of the American Teenager remains as complicated as ever, Castle and Beckett solve a crime backwards and more. As supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are seven programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Alcatraz (Fox) | In the two-hour season finale, Doc and Rebecca close in on a man who may be the key to revealing the secrets behind all the returning criminals, while Hauser makes a discovery beneath the halls of Alcatraz that brings him closer to the truth.

8 pm The Voice (NBC) We’ve got one last week of Battle Rounds, and then next Monday things go live!

8 pm The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family) | Spring premiere: Amy accepts Ricky’s proposal, but there’s a catch — she wants a long engagement; Ben pursues the wild new girl from the graduation party; Adrian and Grace put their drama aside and bunk up during summer school.

Josie Loren on Make It or Break It‘s Big Makeover and the Exit of Revenge’s Josh Bowman

9 pm Being Human (Syfy) | Aidan’s mother resurfaces; Josh’s relationship is compromised by a surprise guest.

9 pm WWE Monday Night RAW (USA Network) | In the last RAW before WrestleMania XXVIII, the Rock faces off with John Cena (both of whom are profiled in the 8 pm special Once in a Lifetime).

Smash Preview: Karen Gets in Bed With Derek!

10 pm Castle (ABC) | When a bomb kills five people at a protest rally, Castle and Beckett reconstruct the 47 seconds prior to the explosion using video and witness accounts, uncovering the shocking truth about who planted the bomb. FlashForward‘s Christine Woods and The Good Wife‘s Tim Guinee guest-star.

10 pm Lost Girl (Syfy) | Dyson’s accused murder of a Dark Fae is complicated by his lack of memory and apparent links to Vex, so Bo and Kenzie try to figure out what exactly happened to him — and who the real killer is.

    Alcatraz and WWE RAW for me. But isn’t there new episode of House and HIMYM?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      ALCATRAZ is two hours, so… no room for HOUSE. CBS is 100% repeats.

      • Obaaand says:

        Thank you Matt for the info.

      • Reena says:

        Matt needed your help…I have Verizon fios and live in Maryland the guide info for Alcatraz tonight has a new episode at 8pm but the 9pm 2nd hour’s info is a repeat of the pilot I went ahead a recorded both hours but am concerned that the 2nd hour will be a repeat. Do you know if anyone else is having this issue any other tvline readers seeing this too? I don’t want to miss anything even if this maybe the last episode I hope it gets renewed! Thanks have a nice day :-)

    The Voice (the final battle rounds before the live shows begins next Monday), WWE Raw SuperShow (last stop before the once in a lifetime match between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena) and I’ll probably watch the two-hour season or series finale of ALCATRAZ On Demand. I’ll be more than disappointed if the series gets canceled by Fox.

    • bad kevin says:

      My bad. Forgot about one thing: WWE Raw SuperShow (last stop before the once in a lifetime match between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson & John Cena at WrestleMania 28 in Miami).

  3. Brandy says:

    Make it or break it, smash. Cant wait til 2 broke girls, gossip girl, hart of dixie are new in a week or two.

    • Ari says:

      Hart of Dixie hasn’t been new in so long I don’t even remember what is happening on that show.

      • Danielle H says:

        That’s why they catch you up in the 30 seconds before the episode starts. I love the show, but I find where it is so light and airy that I forget what’s going on during breaks. They usually remind you with a recap and some dialogue in the beginning though. I believe that Zoe had just called her heart surgeon dad to come do surgery on George’s dad.

  4. kirads09 says:

    No question for me.
    Alcatraz all the way.
    Still bullish on it’s renewal chances.

    • TV Watcher says:

      Kirads09, I totally agree; this show has so much potential and so much story to tell … I am looking for a nice cliffhanger tonight to set up a season 2! Alcatraz FTW!!

  5. meaganwick says:

    Castle: a secret finally revealed!

  6. Castle and Syfy’s Being and Human & Lost Girl (my new FAVE!)

  7. Jane says:

    Sad that tonight will likely be the last Alcatraz. I hope there are some answers. It’s so disheartening. The better the show got, the faster the viewers fled.

    • Ryan says:

      It just honestly isn’t that good of a show. I’m in love with the potential, but it just hasn’t lived up to that, unfortunately.

  8. Becca says:


  9. Sue says:

    Alcatraz and definitely Castle.

  10. brittany says:

    Castle!! :) secrets are out and the Castle Fandom is on edge

  11. Alex says:

    Dancing with the stars… Only for William Levy. :D And Castle! I haven’t been this excited for an episode in a long time! :D

    • Kim R says:

      Ditto. I can’t believe after last week’s spectacular show, DWTS was not even mentioned! :) Can’t wait for Castle either. :)

  12. Lorie says:

    DWTS and Castle!

  13. May says:

    Castle for me. I think nothing else, though. No HIMYM, no House, no fun.

  14. Ryan says:

    Blah, why no new Smash?

  15. Velvet says:

    Being Human
    Lost Girl

  16. CASTLE CASTLE!! Beckett´s secret comes out…she heard and saw everything while she got shot, and hopefully this will be the best episode of the season! :)) 47 seconds, I have the highest hopes for you!

  17. Richard says:

    RuPaul’s Drag Race – 9 p.m. on Logo

  18. max says:

    It almost sounds like they’re about to kill off Agent Houser on Alcatraz. “…..while Hauser makes a discovery beneath the halls of Alcatraz that brings him closer to the truth.” anyone else wanna bet that he discovers this secret on his own, gets killed and the team has to find out what he actually discovered in the second season ?
    Sry I just love predicting season finale outcomes ^^

  19. Make it or Break it for me! Here’s hoping that the show doesn’t suck without Emily. ::fingers crossed::

  20. ATA says:

  21. mia says:

    I really really really want Alcatraz to be renewed. Its SO good.

  22. theresa says:

    Watching Alcataraz & Castle live – DVR Being Human & Lost Girl.

  23. MaryAnn says:

    And you didn’t mention DANCING WITH THE STARS airs tonight with the best cast, in terms of fans of actual dancing and charismatic competitors, that the show has ever had?

  24. Justin says:

    I’ll be watching Alcatraz (hope it shows up for another season), Being Human and Lost Girl.

  25. rubytu says:
