    What about Castle? It’s going to be a stellar episode and you don’t even bother to mention it?

  2. Ann says:

    What — no Castle?

  3. VACastlefan says:

    They mention Castle in the intro…and then have links to two Castle stories/videos under the 10pm section, but I agree it would have been nice to bold it out like the other two shows. Come on TV line, don’t leave us in the lurch! :-)

  4. Nick says:

    DWTS, dvr Revolution, Castle & 2 Broke Girls, hopefully storm doesn’t hit NYC too hard

  5. madbengalsfan85 says:

    One week left until the hiatus is over…I miss Bones

  6. TV Gord says:

    Castle is there. You would think mystery fans would be able to find the clues. ;-)

    By the way, it’s too bad Fox wasn’t prepared with a new episode of Bones now that the World Series is over. Two more hours of the stupid X-Factor auditions is overkill! Out of 15 prime time hours on Fox, eight of those hours is X-Factor this week! Come on!

  7. HIMYM and Revolution.
    Plus last night’s Homeland and Dexter on the DVR.

    • Always on the air says:

      Why DVR Homeland and Dexter? Besides them being OnDemand and on the Showtime website, they will show 24 times from now, until the next episode airs.

      • I live in Canada so it’s a different repeat schedule and takes longer to show up on demand. And it’s not available for Canadians to view online. Having it on DVR means I can watch it whenever I want.

  8. Andrea says:

    Castle!! I’m anxious, nervous, and excited for tonights episode all at the same time!

  9. Brandy says:

    2 broke Girls,GG,90210

  10. Justin says:

    2 broke girls and Hawaii 5-0 for me tonight

  11. John says:

    I can’t wait for Revolution (Its been TWO damn weeks) and Castle!

  12. Renee says:

  15. nick1372 says:

  16. Jared says:

    90210 & 2 Broke Girls

  17. Becks says:

    HIMYM and Castle!!! Should be a good one! :D

  18. tlbrownlie says:

    CBS all the way tonight! Can’t wait for Bones to come back/

  19. Templar says:

    Partners, Mike & Molly and Castle.

  20. tara17 says:

    HIMYR, 2 Broke Girls, Castle and Revolution

  21. Britta Unfiltered says:

    If How I Met Your Mother is going to be a repeat along with Daily Show and Colbert Report, I guess it’s a catch-up DVR night for me. Maybe it’s for the best, I’m getting really behind because I can’t stop re-watching the Homeland episodes! That show is in my head.

  22. madbengalsfan85 says:

    Wonder if ABC and NBC will postpone its shows as well (Mob Doctor and Bones on hiatus, so really nothing for FOX to postpone)

  23. bobbie says:

    I thought Bones and Alphas were on Mondays?

  24. Patti says:

    What have I missed with Glee? When will it return?

  25. Geneese says:

    When will tonights (10/29/12) air on tv?
