    I am probably the only person in the world who feels this way but I am looking forward to the Neighbors return. Such a cute, fun show. The premise is absurd but the actors manage to pull it off. Particularly the two actresses who play the moms. They just act the H*ll out of their roles and make it work.

  2. LynnH says:

    I absolutely love The Neighbors. Not only is it laugh out loud funny, it is also sweet. The Bird-Kersees are The Weaver’s ET. Seems like most comedies are just vehicles for crude sex jokes. The Neighbors is a family show that’s cleverly written, extremely well acted, and puts me in a good mood. Which is quite an accomplishment.

  3. Pati says:

    Strike Back like every Friday. Nothing better happen to Stonebridge

  4. iMember says:

    Last Man Standing!

  5. chris says:

    Shark Tank. Looking forward to Lori and Barbara being in the same episode!

  6. Meghan says:

    Richard II – I’ve been waiting a long time for The Hollow Crown to air over here.

    • JCK says:

      Ditto. PBS all evening. Although I’m urging friends who missed the Sleepy Hollow pilot to watch it’s reprise on Fox tonight.

  7. TexMike says:

    Ghost Adventures and Cracked

  8. Bella says:

    I love The Neighbors, too! When I first heard about the show, I thought, no way. But then caught an episode about 3/4 of the way through the season and really enjoyed it. So tonight it’s The Neighbors and Haven.

    • Aimee says:

      You have to watch the holiday episodes. Halloween was really good and the Thanksgiving episode was LOL funny. The Christmas episode was funny and sweet. Good introductions to what this show is all about.

  9. Carm says:

    I thought The Neighbors would be very stupid. But I watched and really do think it’s funny.

  10. mzteaze says:

    Strike Back
    Cracked on Reelz

  11. Steve says:

    Strike Back

  12. Steve F. says:

    What, no mention of the Sleepy Hollow rebroadcast on Fox at 9? That’s what I’ll be watching; otherwise, thank goodness tonight is my bowling night!

  13. Abby says:

    Haven and the Hollow Crown :-)

  14. cjeffery7 says:

    Legend of Korra DAMN RIGHT!

  15. G says:

    Last Man Standing and Strike Back.

  16. Maryann says:

    Haven (SyFy)

    Cracked (Reelz) Fantastic new series about a cop suffering from PTSD and otherwise slightly crazy is partnered with a psychiatrist to deal with crimes involving unbalanced suspects.

  17. Steven says:

    Just Shark Tank for me.

  18. I really liked Last Man Standing, too bad it was canceled after just one season.
