On TV this Monday: It won’t be hard to forecast Beckett’s reaction when a journalist advances on Castle, an intimate reveal causes problems for some Partners, the Alphas reel after the death of one of their own and there’s a jam for just about everyone at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (always linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar tonight.
8 pm iHeartRadio Music Festival (The CW) | The genre-crossing concert – which took place in Las Vegas in September — featured performances from artists including Usher, Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift, Aerosmith, Lil Wayne, Enrique Iglesias, Brad Paisley and Pitbull. At least some of those will be shown during the two-hour broadcast, though maybe you won’t see Billie Joe’s expletive-laden-though-pretty-awesome rant.
8 pm Bones (Fox) | When Booth has to stay behind to work on his department’s budget, Sweets gets a temporary partner in FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling (Shark‘s Danielle Panabaker). (Get more scoop on the episode.)
8 pm Alphas (Syfy) | Dani’s death at Parish’s hands leaves Rosen and the team in shock.
8 pm How I Met Your Mother (CBS) | Barney’s detailed pre-nup outrages Quinn and inspires the guys to propose their own relationship amendments to their significant others.
8:30 pm Partners (CBS) | Note to Joe: When you and Ali haven’t gotten it on in a while, maybe it’s best not to share info that with Louis. Just a tip.
9 pm Warehouse 13 (Syfy) | Midseason finale: The Warehouse’s battle against the unspeakable power that has steadily consumed Artie comes to a shocking, devastating conclusion.
9 pm Major Crimes (TNT) | Tao’s world is rocked when an eight-year-old murder conviction is overturned; Rusty has his first outing with his dad.
9 pm 2 Broke Girls (CBS) | Will Martha Stewart ever call? Max and Caroline keep the faith that the home-and-garden guru, who loved their cupcakes in last season’s finale, will support their fledgling business. Also, Caroline loses a lucky keepsake. (If it’s Chestnut: Seriously, girl – you’ve gotta keep that horse tied up!)
10 pm Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) | McGarrett asks Catherine for help in finding his mom; the team calls on August March (returning guest star Edward Asner) for assistance when an art heist turns deadly.
10 pm Castle (ABC) | On Beckett’s first day back from suspension, she and Castle investigate a weather forecaster’s death. Think it’ll be easy to keep their relationship on the QT with this hottie (played by Prison Break‘s Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) making Castle’s mercury rise?
