  19. Andy says:

    TBBT, 2&1/2 Men, Elementary, and Glee. Watched Do No Harm last night and it was good. Obviously it made me think of My Own Worst Enemy. It was a decent pilot. Will probably need another episode or two before deciding to keep on watching or not. Loved Phylicia Rashad, as always. I hope she comes back for a third episode as Mrs. Guster soon.

  20. Jacki says:

    Olivia will come looking for you for leaving Scandal off this list! 10 pm Scandal (ABC)

    • Sharie says:

      Haha you Scandal fans should also check out BATB since Brendan Hines, the dearly departed journalist, will be on…although I miss him on Scandal too but happy to see him :)

  27. Danielle H. says:

    Loving all the Beauty and the Beast love on here. That show has really grown into engaging television.. the growth of the relationship btwn Cat and Vincent is just epic.

  28. Lea says:

    Saw ”Do no Harm” on demand and let me just say that it was a really good show!! Looking forward to next week’s episode!!

  29. Ted says:

    Let’s take all the leftover scripts from “Awake” and remove the “alternate realities” aspect and do it Jekyll and Hyde style. Maybe they won’t notice.

  30. Roni says:

    30 Rock, The Office, Grey’s, Glee, Project Runway, Kathy (with guest Chris Colfer!), Victor Garber on Watch What Happens, and possibly my favorite show on TV right now, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

  31. Auden says:

    Definitely BBT-missed it last week and looking forward to some Shamy shenanigans. And POI-missed it too. Glad it’s back! :)

  32. Jess says:

    aww 30 rock, I’ll miss you, LL!

  33. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Ha. I love it when Detective Munch shows up on random non-Law and Order shows, like he did with the X-Files. Richard Belzer has got to hold some kind of record for showing up on the most shows as the same character.

  34. Shireen says:

    Beauty and the Beast as well as Scandal!
