    Mike asks Jessica or is it supposed to be Mike asks Rachel?

  2. Cassandra says:

    I can’t put into words how excited I am to have SOA back. They are going to have a hard time topping last season, but I have faith they will succeed.

  3. SK says:

    Covert Affairs

  4. Jerri says:

    Rizzoli & Isles and Suits. By the way, is this the last episode of R&I with Detective Frost’s (Young’s) appearance?

    • Simon Jester says:

      @Jerri – I don’t think so. From what I read, they were filming the finale (not the mid-season finale) when he killed himself, so I think we’ll see a few more episodes with him in the winter.

  5. Sara says:

    Aww Hurley! Sidenote – I know he’s an actor & it’s just a job, but I’m disappointed with Charlie. What a downgrade to go from SOA to 50 shades

    • Winter says:

      It’s great career move. He will get the chance to play a role that will give him the most exposure he has ever had just as SOA is ending. It may not be the most sophisticated material (honestly I haven’t read the books so I wouldn’t know) but it is an amazing opportunity for him. I was proud of him for landing the role.

    • Cheeky says:

      I agree, no A-list actor wanted to be seen in that role, and I don’t think it will be good in boosting Charlie’s career either…

    • Jerri says:

      maybe he lost a bet…?

  6. Justin says:

    Rizzoli & Isles, Suits and Covert Affairs for me tonight.

  7. Jose says:

    Suits and Sons of Anarchy!

  8. JKR says:

    Oh, please. Still trying to make Jane and Casey happen?

    • Simon Jester says:

      Yeah, I’m bored with the whole storyline, too.

      • Alichat says:

        It’s boring because it’s been poorly written. There’s been no depth to it after his surgery, and they rushed the surgery storyline too. I like her character with Casey, and I just wish they’d have her with him for awhile…..dating….interacting with her family, etc. It’s like they don’t know how to write a romance for her character.

  11. Guess I’ll wait next Tuesday to watch the premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine with the always funny Andy Samberg.

  12. Bill says:

    Sons of Anarchy and Tosh.0

  13. The Beach says:

    SOA for sure. You have SYTYCD listed on FX.

  14. Cindy says:

    I not only miss Hurley but Jorge Garcia as well. I’ve enjoyed him in Once Upon a Time and also liked Alcatraz. I hope he gets on something that lasts or comes back to OUAT on a regular basis.

  15. cjeffery7 says:

    4 8 15 16 23 42…… UH OH

  16. Babybop says:

    Is Slezak doing a recap of SYTYCD tonight? He’s missed the last two weeks and I miss his commentary!

  17. David4 says:

    SYTYCD is on Fox and not FX. ;)

  18. G says:

    America’s Got Talent and Sons of Anarchy.

  19. Tammy says:

    SYTYCD!!!!!! And WDYTYA with Jim Parsons

  20. Whatever says:
