(Yep, renewed.)

10 pm Grimm (NBC) | Rick Nick & Co. investigate suspects that appear to be zombies (get scoop!); Adalind is caught between Stefania and Frau Pech while nailing down the deals of her very important transaction.

10 pm Who Gets the Last Laugh? (TBS) | In tonight’s ep, which also features Saturday Night Live‘s Finesse Mitchell and Borat‘s Luenell, Growing Pains alum Alan Thicke’s prank involves turning a VIP club list into Purgatory. Alan, when in doubt, think: WWKCD? (What would Kirk Cameron do?)

  • I thought Mindy Project and New Girl ended last week, whoops! Happy we get another episode, but hoping Nick and Jess get a happy ending for the season at least.

  • OK, both NCIS and NCIS LA are my favorite shows, along with Castle and ELementary, but I really wish the writers would go back to “crime” stories. Even though the “N” shows do deal with things that might just happen, it’s gotten to be a destroy Gibbs show not a crime solving show. I love LL Cool J and glad his character is married and happy, but I would rather see “crime” “homeland crises” cases solved and banter between the partners and Hetty saving the day than worry about lives ending.. Castle is great, lets get back to again crime solving, banter between the partners and a little “sexy time for Castle and Beckett” and not so much DRAMA. Also, while I’m ranting, Elementary is one of the best shows on TV and now Irene Adler is back?!?!?!?!?. Wasn’t her throat cut, etc. Can’t we just have 4 fun, crime solving shows that take us away from the insanity of the world we now live in and give us time to just relax and enjoy the tv.

    • I definitely agree with everything you said jmp, getting into the “specialty” items is hooey!!! They all are supposed to be crime solving series but now, not so much. IMO that is why “The Mentalist” is loosing viewers cause they made this RED JOHN thing the MOST important thing & now viewers are certain when Red John is finally captured that will be the end of the series. Not my feelings but I have read quite a few comments stating the same–Get back to basic crime solving like when you started, that made you so popular from the get-go. Now that was me just ranting, didn’t mean to go on & on.

      • A lot of people watch primarily the “Red John” episodes.

    • It’s being shopped to several cable stations, and it appears there is a decent chance of a rescue.

  • Sooooooo sad about Golden Boy. Should have guessed when they introduced it and then moved it around right away that someone really wanted it to fail:-( Maybe there were show politics involved.

  • Anyone watching something not on the list of stated suggestions? If so, could you feel free to add them to the comments. For years people included what they are watching on TV that night, but lately everyone who frequents watches exactly what is being listed or the exact same thing as everyone else.
