What to Watch Monday: Carrie Diaries and Three Other Premieres, 2 Broke Girls Go Wild and More

THE CARRIE DIARIESOn TV this Monday: The Carrie Diaries introduce Ms. Bradshaw in the ’80s, Continuum gets its U.S. showcase, Being Human begins again and 2 Broke Girls brave the great outdoors (including a pair of “bears”).

8 pm The Carrie Diaries (The CW) | Series premiere: Before the steady stream of men and Manolos, Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw was a suburban Connecticut teenager with dreams of making it big in Manhattan. Based on the Candace Bushnell novel, this prequel finds a 16-year-old Carrie (played by Soul Surfer‘s AnnaSophia Robb) newly motherless and trying to navigate high school. But when she lands an internship in New York City, the fun begins. Matt Letscher (Eli Stone) plays her dad, Austin Butler (Life Unexpected) a new guy at school and Chloe Bridges (90210) her high school rival. (Get more scoop.)

8 pm Continuum (Syfy) | U.S. premiere: This Canadian import stars Rachel Nichols (Alias) as a cop from the year 2077 who gets swept up in a band of terrorists’ plot to escape death by time-traveling, back to 2012. Erik Knudsen (Jericho) and Victor Webster (Castle) co-star. (Read preview Q&A.)

8 pm How I Met Your Mother (CBS) | Robin insists that Barney ask Robin Sr. (returning guest star Ray Wise) for permission before they announce their engagement.

      • I didn’t very like the middle of the season (episode 3 to 8), that was too standalone and not enough on the strory line for me.

        And Im not a fan of (the acting talent) of Rachel Nichols, we have a lot of canadian actress better than that.

  • Last week was just bliss with only 3 of my shows (Switched at Birth, Bunheads, Castle). This week begins hell with the addition of Bones, HIMYM, and Mike & Molly. Very glad that ABC Family puts their shows On-Demand. I just wish Mike & Molly was on the CBS site like HIMYM.

  • So what year is this show set? Early 80s? That is the best aspect of the series. Will she be a virgin or does she have sex in the city?
