  • 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.

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

    Comment by Jacki – January 31, 2013 08:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • 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 :)

  • I can’t believe this is the end, but in going to savor every last second of the finale. Please everyone record BBT for once and watch 30 Rock, I promise you won’t regret it. I’ll be watching 30 Rock tonight for sure, if you couldn’t already tell.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Comment by Ted – January 31, 2013 11:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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.

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

  • 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.
