  2. Cassandra says:

    I didn’t realize CW was already doing falling finale’s, does that mean they are not returning until Spring 2014? Does anyone have the return dates for these shows?

  3. Justin says:

    2 Broke Girls, Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human, Major Crimes and the Blacklist for me tonight.

  4. “Marshall tries to get Marvin to sleep by reciting rhyming bedtime tales about his friends”

    Major Crimes! I didn’t realize it was starting tonight. Woot woot! I was able to see Castle and Beauty and the Beast last evening due to the Canadian airing. So it will be a DWTS pvr night and a Blacklist, Mike & Molly watching. :)

    • Eric7740 says:

      Yeah, there wasn’t much to promote Major Crimes’ return, which surprises me from TNT. I only know because there was a reminder on the screen during a movie I was watching on TNT this weekend. So thanks TVLine for the reminder!!!

      • Angie says:

        I hate to say this, but TNT has been advertising Major Crimes coming back on since the end of Oct. I said to my hubby, I can’t believe they are advertising this already since it is only the end of Oct. So I do remember it being advertised early enough. I’m hoping this can be understood?

    I’m on a strictly ‘Castle Only’ diet on Monday’s cause it’s Castle Monday, though I do DVR Blacklist as it’s too good to be missed. Castle..oh Castle. I am gonna miss you during the winter break. Still what a way to go into the break..a baby themed episode after the terror of last week! Thank you Castle writers & AM for this cheerful send off! It’s gonna rock today based on the 3 sneek peeks.

  20. Pat D. says:

    The one thing I don’t get about Major Crimes is how they don’t do more Flynn/Provenza pairings. I can’t think of a single time when those two were paired up for an investigation that it failed to be awesome.

  21. Jake says:

    Come in, 2 night finale of dancing with the stars!

    Also, michael buble on the tonight show tonight

  22. Pat says:
