8 pm Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (ABC) | Series premiere: This Once Upon a Time spin-off follows Alice (Sophie Lowe, Beautiful Kate) as she is spirited back to Wonderland by the White Rabbit (voiced by John Lithgow, Third Rock from the Sun) just in time to avoid a brain-blasting treatment in an asylum.

Keith David (The Bible) and Iggy Pop (Iggy Pop!!!) voice the Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar, respectively. (Read our in-depth preview.)

    • karenb says:

      Me too

      • Girl in MD says:

        I hate to ask this but i have not seen any mention of Diana Agron being in tonight’s episode does anyone know why?

        • Ann says:

          I heard rumors on another site that Ryan Murphy and Lea Michelle don’t get along with her and so she was not asked to participate in the tribute episode. It’s just a rumor though and Diana Agron’s people have not yet commented on this supposed feud.

          • Juliana says:

            That’s weird, ’cause Dianna and Lea used to be best friends and lived together for awhile.

          • Girl in MD says:

            Wow I hope that is not true even though I have read other articles that say Lea is a complete diva I try not to think everything i read is true but if this is and she was asked not to participate I feel bad for Diana she was Finn’s first girlfriend on the show I would think the producers would atleast allow her to have some sort of cameo for tonight’s episode

  2. Maki says:

  9. GS says:

    Going to have to watch Glee although I haven’t watched in a couple years. It’s TVD, Glee, and Scandal for me tonight. I’ll DVR Grey’s. Glee is going to tough but I bet the songs will be awesome. Regardless of how he died, it’s still a horrible situation and I’m glad the show is addressing Finn’s absence and giving the cast a chance to pay tribute to the character and the person.

  10. Danielle. says:

    The Vampire Diaries has gotten even better with Silas as the big bad of this season. Can’t wait for tonight’s episode. Will also DVR Once in Wonderland and Glee. Glee will be a tough episode to get through. So sad.

    Watching OUAT in Wonderland and Scandal live, then Crazy Ones, MIchael J. Fox Show, Welcome To The Family, Parks and Rec, and GA tomorrow (help).

    • Delirious says:

      Your comment about Glee was what I was gonna ask about. I haven’t really watched since… Season 3, I think? But I guess I’ll watch tonight’s episode. And I guess it’s the missing option in the poll: “I haven’t watched it in a long time, but plan to tune in”.

  20. Columbus says:

    Big DVR night: Glee, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Elementary, Big Bang Theory

  21. DJ Doena says:

    I’ve given up on Glee mid-season 4, it’s just not what it used to be in the beginning. But I am going to watch this one episode.

  26. liz says:

    Not enjoying this Joel + Julie plot line on Parenthood.

    • Ann says:

      Yep. It’s almost a rehash of the Joel and another stay-at-home mom from a few years ago. This show doesn’t need to go there again.

  27. Aprilcot says:

    Glee, even though I’m not ready for it.
    Parks & Rec
    The Crazy Ones
