    This is one good night to watch TV. Let’s see: The Voice, Alphas (Mutant X as it should have been done in the first place), Masterchef, and Perception? “Heaven… this is Heaven… and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak…”

  2. iMember says:

    I’m shocked you guys didn’t mention the early premiere of “The New Normal” right after The Voice tonight. I loved the Pilot for it! Also, it’s nice that they’re showing another new episode tomorrow night in its time slot debut!

  3. Becks says:

    If anyone’s interested, the Castle finale is repeating tonight :)

  4. “Always” rerun and one of few good shows left on ABC Family: Switched at Birth (still can’t believe that ending from last week!)

  5. sj says:

    Encore says that The Crimson Petal and the White is only a 2 part show, not a 4 part.

  6. Jon says:

    Jessica Simpson as Katie Couric’s first episode guest? Count me out. I’ll check it out another day when she’s not featuring fluff.

  7. JamandaFan says:

    I’ll be watching GH! There were already too many talk shows and now they added even more?! I want romance and adventure in the afternoon–not someone’s opinions or anecdotes!

  8. Velvet says:

    What, no mention of Warehouse 13????

    Dagnammit. Wish I would have seen this a few days ago. Went to look for Masterchef last night to check out the finale but it wasn’t on so I went online only to see that I’d missed it. So disappointed right now.
