    Under The Dome

  2. Elyse says:

    Live: Switched at Birth. DVR: The Fosters, The Glades, Misstresses, Teen Wolf and Under the Dome :D

  3. Tina says:

    Rerun of last weeks Major Crimes at 8pm then the new episode of Major Crimes at 9pm.
    Maybe DVR Longmire.
    That’s it!

  4. April says:

    I’ll be watching The Fosters live. Gotta see what happened after the gunshots!

  5. Columbus says:

    The Fosters! Big cliffhanger last week…and Major Crimes

  6. arial2 says:

    What do you have against Longmire? I like its A&E “companion” The Glades, but Longmire is much better done, may be the best Monday show, yet you never recommend it. Also watch Major Crimes, then King and Maxwell. Then I watch Under the Dome “On Demand.” However, I’m a little upset to hear rumors that UtD will do a second season. Stephen King promised the story would be resolved at the end of its current run. Shades of The Killing’s season one story which extended into season two, upsetting many viewers. NBC should keep in mind this is a summer filler show which may not perform well if they try to move it into regular season; right now, it has no new competition, just reruns opposite it.

  7. Leo says:

    Mistresses! Next week’s break is gonna kill me though.
    Such a guilty pleasure.

  8. SK says:

    Major Crimes
    King & Maxwell (if it is on!)

  11. joey says:

    Under The Dome and will check out The Writers Room since Jim who plays Dean on Community is the host and the Breaking Bad team is on the first episode.

  12. JCK says:

    Are you kidding? Lonesome Dove on AMC! One of the few times a Pulitzer winning novel was perfectly cast for a mini series. And it’s 4 straight hours! Perfect.

    • Sarah says:

      Whoa! I didn’t even know this was on! I’m so glad you posted. That’s what I’ll be watching, as well. The rest can go to the DVR.

      • Jay says:

        I saw Lonesome Dove when it first aired! I don’t know why the networks stopped making those? You can’t find good original movies anymore. And before you get snippy, I’v seen the ones Syfy makes. I said good, right?

  13. Jared says:

    Hit the Floor
    Teen Wolf

  14. Mark says:

    Switched At Birth, The Fosters, and then Breaking Pointe on DVR.

  15. Two says:

    Falling Skies

    Under the Dome

  16. Lisa says:

    Unfortunately, the only two things I watch on Monday come on at the same time. Looks like I will be watching The Fosters live and DVRing Major Crimes.

  17. sarah says:

  22. Shaun says:

    I’ve already seen that ep of The Glades online….how is this even possible?

  23. Nina says:

    Switched at Birth and Teen Wolf!

  24. krisser says:

    I watch King & Maxwell, Major Crimes, Longmire and the Glades, along with Sundays Crossing lines, these are my summer faves.

  25. tp says:

    I used to love The Glades but, for me, Jim is becoming obnoxious. I love SAB but I’m not interested in Toby’s fiancee’s story with her dad’s murderer. I wish they would get rid of that storyline with her altogether. Longmire is really good. I enjoy it more every episode.
