  1. Sarah says:

    Hart of Dixie, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Private Practice

    Watched Happy Endings last night and just about keeled over laughing. Damon Wayans Jr is freaking phenomenal!!

  2. Blinged Up says:

    Parenthood and a new Shark Tank episode on ABC tonight instead of their usual Friday night slot. Love this show!

  3. megan says:

    Really disliked this season of SONS. Kurt is just trying to shock the hell out of everyone now instead of having quality storylines (see season 2). Such a bummer because the cast is outstanding. And what is up with Tara? This is the Tara from season 1. Kurt backtracked her whole character and now she’s back to where she started. Wanting to run away. Just an example of how bad the character writing is now.

    • Yeah your right. This season of Sons is really, really m.f.bull.s. No storyline, no character. It´s just hanging around to stay and hold the line […] W.T.F. ??!!! Where is the ultimate final to close a season ??? Its just smaltalk in the mirrow … Pffffff, whens next staff going exactly, I DONT WATCH HIM…….

  4. Leena says:

    Charity picnic auction? Bluebell really is Stars Hollow. Kinda hoping it’s Jess that shows up to out bid Zoe!

  5. wrstlgirl says:

    Thanks for the Sons of Anarchy (spoilers) :-) Awesome!!

  6. K says:

    Awful season of Sons so I’m glad it’s getting put out of its misery tonight, but can’t say I won’t have withdrawals. 9 month hiatus sucks, but I hope season 6 brings back the season 1/2 quality it used to have.

  7. Brandy says:

    Hart of Dixie,Emily Owens MD, Rizzoli& Isles

  8. hrmyer says:

    Tuesday has really turned into the best night on TV for me, Hart of Dixie, Emily Owens MD, Rizzoli & Isles and SOA (cannot wait, this season has been great, cannot believe it will be gone for 9 months!!!)

  9. Me says:

    As a person originally from Cleveland I think I can ask this: why, oh why is the Travel channel doing anything with the Cleveland Browns?!

    Sure Cleveland is a great city with all sorts of neat things to do and discover, but let’s face it football is not the city’s strong suit.

    • Renee says:

      Yeah but the Browns play hard. Gotta give them credit for that. As a long time Falcons fan I understand taking what little bit of good might come your way. And eventually usually sometimes maybe hopefully it can turn around for your team. Hopefully. Has for the Falcons. But they were really really bad for most of my life…but still always my team. Credit Browns fans for sticking with their team.

  10. Jim says:

    Don’t Trust The B. It’s the funniest show on tv right now, and sadly it’s doomed so I want to watch while I can.

    • Smigglesby says:

      Tonight’s Apt 23 is one of the holdover episodes from season one, it aired in Canada last night. It was just okay… but it was nice to see Liza Lapira as Robyn again.

  11. mia says:

    Sarah’s actions on Parenthood are making me nervous! Hank vs Mark!!!! The stress!

    Zoe and Wade are the cutest couple on TV.

  16. AFan says:

    Updated A-Team
    Nate = Hannibal “I love it when a plan comes together”
    Elliot = BA Baracus
    Sophie = Face
    Parker = Murdoch
    Hardison is an update for the tech and takes on some of BA’s building “things” for the con.

  17. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Rudolph! Hmm, it would be fun to pair that with Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas.

  18. de says:

    looking forward to tonight’s Hart of Dixie.. I was so sad with the ending of last week’s episode, but this description made me very happy!

  19. melliemd says:

    Parenthood. So glad Hank’s back. Ray Romano and Lauren Graham have so much chemistry.

  20. Blake says:

    The New Normal, Go On, New Girl, The Mindy Project, and LEVERAGE! TvLine: Why are there two previews for Private Practice, and two previews for New Normal, but no single mention of or reference to Leverage?

  21. Zach says:

  22. kristina says:
