    Bones

    Defiance
    The Following

    DVR
    Warehouse 13

    Possibly Revolution – due to Wersching and Pelligrino guest appearances. Otherwise show has lost me.

    • Revolution has changed format, as it were, from a “quest” to an action-oriented series, which isn’t bad at all. Danny was a Maguffin whose sole purpose was to be a quest object for the protagonist, Charlie, to go after. The quest was a device used to establish the world of the future. Now that that’s done, it’s time for the story to unfold.

      Imagine how bad it would be if they hadn’t rescued Danny and Monroe kept moving him across the country so that Charlie kept chasing after him?

      This format is much better than the alternative.

  16. Scottyb says:

    I woke up early this morning to watch All My Children – the show was awesome! I loved every moment of the show. If the first show is any indication of what is coming then All My Children is a hit and it is back to being the show I loved for years. This might be the best thing ever to happen to All My Children.

    Just watched the OLTL and AMC reboots! Great to see the old characters. Loved Tuc watkins!

  27. antoine says:

    Bones !! =D

  28. Sunshine says:

    90210 & Revolution
    DVR Defiance & Warehouse 13
    I’ll watch OLTL & AMC as soon as I get home, wish I had remembered to bring the earbuds for my iPad or I could have watched it on my break :/. I’ll remember that for tomorrow most definitely. :)

  29. Kari says:

    Where is Monday Mornings, do you know??? I want it back!!
    And I am old, so I have to figure out hulu for AMC :)

    • MaryAnn says:

      Monday Mornings is one of my favorite shows as well. It has aired its season finale, and since it did not get great ratings, it is unlikely that TNT will renew it for another season. (In fact, if I could only watch one TNT show, this one would be it — they just needed a better marketing campaign that didn’t make the show look depressing — which it wasn’t.)

  30. MaryAnn says:

    And you left DANCING WITH THE STARS off your list because? It airs a new performance show from 8-10 PM tonight, if anyone is wondering what happened to it.

    What about the new episode of CASTLE?

    And what about REVOLUTION? Seems like a lot of shows that viewers should be aware of were left off the list.

    At any rate, for me Mondays tie or even exceed Sundays as the day with the most shows not to be missed. So here goes my list for tonight:

    Dancing With the Stars (Live)
    Revolution (Live)

    On line or on demand:

    The Following
    Hawaii Five-0
    Castle
    Defiance

    And don’t forget Sundance’s new series RECTIFY that portrays how a man copes with returning to his home town after being on Death Row for 19 years. Unfortunately, this one does not appear to be available online or on demand, so if anyone is interested, it will have to be DVR or one of the several alternate viewings offered in the next few days.

    • Emily says:

      I think the point of this feature is to highlight programs, not list every new airing, so as to direct your attention to episodes of particular interest, premieres and finales. And to provide a broad range of suggestions for everyone.
      Also, Castle is listed as a linked preview feature.

  31. Luis says:

    James Marsters??? SHUT UP!!! As if I could be more excited for Warehouse 13!

  32. JP says:

    Though just the word “hellbugs” creeps the bejeezus out of me, I’m in for DEFIANCE. And I’m thrilled for the return of WAREHOUSE 13 — James Marsters is just the cherry on top.

  33. Bob says:

    Bones
    The Following
    Warehouse 13

  34. Frankie707 says:

    Bones
    The Following
    Warehouse 13
    Bones (rewatch from DVR with west coast viewers)

  35. ollie says:

  36. Britta Unfiltered says:

    The Big C is on tonight?? Good to know. For some reason I thought it was on last night and couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t finding it anywhere online. Mystery solved.

  37. Mari says:

    Castle!

  38. kirads09 says:

    I forgot – also DVR’ing Bates Motel for later.
