    With March Madness taking away my Thurs night CBS shows – big fat nothing.
    Probably rent a movie or some DVR/On Demand catch up.

  2. Eric says:

    I’ll be watching Community, and that’s probably it, unfortunately.

  3. Renee says:

    Beauty & The Beast live, DVR Person Of Interest & Elementary.

  4. Shireen says:

    Beauty and the Beast! And Scandal :)

  5. mia says:

    Beauty and the Beast!!!!! I hope that means that Tess finds out about Vincent and that her + Cat can get back to being best friends again. I don’t want Tess siding with Joe.

    • Shaun says:

      If Vincent was smart he’d lay low until this task force is shut down.

      • mia says:

        lol agreed. But if we know anything about Vincent its that he’s not always super smart in regards to his own safety. I think part of him wants to get caught, to have all this out in the open

  6. B says:

    What the heck with no Office and Parks this week? I’m really disappointed in every network but especially NBC and ABC because this fall every show pretty much aired without breaks and I was like “TV’s getting a little better guys” and KNOPE.

  7. B says:

    Also I don’t care what you people watch live and watch on your DVR
    “Scandal, Grey’s and I’m going to DVR an episode of What Not to Wear from February 6th”
    Cool guys.

  8. livvy says:

  9. Community and Archer. It really surprises me that there any new shows tonight. I know not everyone watches March Madness. But shows like Community need all the viewers they can get.
