    You forgot about Sherlock on PBS’s Masterpiece Theater.

  2. Rob says:

    Um, Sherlock? Game of Thrones?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Ah, yes — SHERLOCK is a most legitimate oversight. I shall add! (GoT has been included every week this season so far; as such, it’s taking a breather this week.)

      • Mike says:

        Coincidentally, last night’s Game of Thrones episode was probably the best episode of the season so far. lol Good timing! :-)

  3. tvaddict says:

    Once Upon A Time

    The Real Housewives of New Jersey
    The Client List

  10. greysfan says:

    Once Upon a Time
    Desperate Housewives,
    Game of Thrones

  11. Damien says:

    Seems to me like TV line is missing the mark when they don’t even mention the show who’s 2nd season has had the most buzz including increased ratings. I don’t remember Game of Thrones disappointing this year.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      The excellent GAME OF THRONES been included every week this season so far; as such, it’s taking a breather this time around.

  12. Mark says:

    Game of Thrones isn’t even on this list? What gives? TVLine must have some kind of vendetta against it. Promoting Army Wives over GoT? Really TVLine? Shameful. Sarcasm btw. Although Army Wives sucks.

    All the Fox comedies seem pretty solid tonight. I’ll be watching them, DH, GCB, Once, RHONJ, and CA.

  13. I hope this inst the last time we see the GCB girls, I really like this show. its so funny, I think this one be the hour show that would fit in the comedy block on Wed. and Revenge could move to sundays

    Once Upon ATime,Desperate Housewives,GCB,Armywives, & The Client List

  14. Renee says:

    SHERLOCK!! (Yes I yelled…it’s worth it.)

  15. niks says:

    Everyone should watch Sherlock. Its a great episode. You all will love it.

  16. Elaine says:

    Too many great shows to watch. Man, once May is over it’s going to be a whole different ball game on Sunday nights. I’ll be watching the AMAZING Game of Thrones and Sherlock plus Mad Men, Once Upon a Time, Girls, Veep, comedy awards, Between Two Ferns, the Borgias. Putting that PVR to good use today.

  17. Abed says:

    Cougarton Abbey and Inspector Spacetime on Bluray.

  18. India says:

    TAR. OUAT. DH. GCB. Nurse Jackie. Killing. Mad Men. Veep. GoT.

    Thank goodness for DVRs.

    I think it is fair you gave thrones a break. You should give Girls a similar break. It’s been up there for four weeks in a row and it’s one of the worst shows in television history.

  19. bad kevin says:

    The Killing, Mad Men & the season finale of Amazing Race. I’ll be disappointed if Rachel and Dave wins the $1 million prize.

  20. OUAT
