What to Watch Monday: A Stormy Castle, Partners Overshares, iHeartRadio Music Fest and More

Get More: Previews, What to Watch

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!)

PREVIEW | Elizabeth Mitchell Talks Revolution‘s Revelation, Says ‘Things Aren’t What They Seem’

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?

  • Need to catch up on Revolution, watch the pilot for Partners. Definitely watching HIMYM tonight. And then there’s Castle (which I technically watch Thursdays) and Switched At Birth. Just your typical Monday for me. :D

    • Curious. What made you stop watching Revolution?

      • Pointless to ask. Personal tastes. Its an awesome show till now imo.

        Comment by Dean – October 1, 2012 10:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Meh. I don’t find it pointless. Maybe there was something that happened in the show (s)he didn’t like. Or something didn’t go the way they expected. I always find it interesting. ^_^

          • All I saw was the pilot, and that was too much. I couldn’t stop pausing the TV to yell in rage every 30 seconds, during the first 10 minutes. I genuinely felt insulted by the assumption that viewers failed every middle school science class / don’t know how anything works. I expected so much more from Kripke, but at least now I’ve tempered my expectations of his future projects.

          • I’ll be watch Bones, Warehouse 13, and Castle. How I Met Your Mother, Alphas, and 2 Broke Girls get to be TiVoed for later.

            Comment by HarryKam – October 1, 2012 01:07 PM PDT  
          • I like the premise of the show. It poses a great question. But for me a lot of the scenes felt either predictable/forced and the dialogue so-so. I’ve only seen the pilot myself. I have the second episode DVR’ed so I’ll probably watch that and the new one tonight.

            Really wishing I kept up with 2 Broke Girls. For some reason I assumed it would’ve been cancelled so I stopped halfway through. :\

    • Done with Hawaii Five-O as well.

      Comment by GK – October 1, 2012 06:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I couldn’t stand Alphas from the beginning. Didn’t like any of the characters. So over rated & and far as I’m concerned did not come close to living up to the Comic Con hype.

      Comment by L – October 1, 2012 09:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Hype was over the top, but I liked season 1. Problem is even now I don’t connect to the characters much and the show was so boring in the past few episodes. I probably will watch the rest of the episodes at a stretch after the season ends and decide if I should still be a fan.

    Comment by natali – October 1, 2012 08:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Partners was the worst first episode of a series I’ve seen in a long time. It better improve fast (and for god’s sake make Mark quit chewing the scenery!) or it’s dead to me.

    • I wouldn’t even go near to the second episode, just saying.

  • Castle for sure (and will DVR it). DVRing Hawaii 5-0. Will watch Revolution online if I like the second episode, which I haven’t watched yet. I hope when Smash comes back it’s on a night/time that has nothing else to watch!!

  • To all H50 fans,pls watch it live..we need our numbers…

    Comment by meah – October 1, 2012 12:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Actually, you don’t. Hawai’i 5-0 is guaranteed another season get enough episodes to put its syndication deal into effect.

    • Not being a Neilson family, whether I watch it live or DVR makes no difference to the official ratings.

  • No time for Monday TV, there’s still so much from Sunday to get caught up on.

  • Gave Partners a second chance and was pleasantly suprised. Actually laughed out loud quite a bit this time around. Helped also with the background story on CBS News Sunday Morning Profile about the writers. The jokes were funny and that they made fun of Brandon Routh’s lack of expression. Mike and Molly was laugh so hard I couldn’t breathe funny too!!
