    Castle! I wasn´t able to watch it yet and was anxious from the promos and s.p., as I love the intense and dark episodes – and from the comments I read, I´m even more anxious:)

    1, Why do we did a Voice Recap?
    2. This was the best Castle episode of the season. I was slightly creeped out, but I loved it!!!!!!!!!
    3. I’m going to miss Bones and The Blacklist :(

  24. Jared says:

    HIMYM
    Hostages

  25. Cody Drennen says:

    I will be watching WWE Monday Night RAW. It is RAW Country with Florida Georgia Line performing so it will be great.

  26. sarah says:

    Looks like a full night of the Voice is kicking out Blacklist! That is so silly! Not impressed at all!

  27. suzyku says:

    We really enjoyed Almost Human and look forward to tonights 2nd. episode. Where’s Blacklist? Missing Bones on Monday nights but look forward to Fridays more now with Haven, Bones and Grimm!

    2 Broke Girls, Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow

    A heads up – for those who watch DWTS on Boston’s WCVB, it’s going to air on ME TV tonight because of the Pats game.

  30. bobbie says:

    almost human, mom, castle, sleepy hollow

  31. HAP says:

    So weird that NBC is withholding The Blacklist smack in the middle of the season. I know for sure it’s not going to help future ratings tune in for it.

  32. DavidSask says:

    The Voice doing recap shows really angers me, there is no reason for this other than greed! Stop doing this NBC!

  33. Rita Sioros says:

    I missed Bones Monday night. I tried to watch Almost Human could not get into it. They need to advertise Bones more. They do not do a good job of it. Great story lines. It does not get the credit it deserves.
