    Hopefully, the Walking Dead show doesn’t take a cue from the comics. During the prison invasion, Lori and baby Judith die in a hail of gunfire. Tyrese gets beheaded by the Governor, using Michonne’s sword.

  2. shuayb says:

    Ugh can’t believe we have to wait another week for Once. So not on…. I also hope that Alicia wins the suite! I’m so tired of Lockhart Gardner. Esp Will. Ugh. Blergh.

  3. nikki says:

    Once comes on tonight. The Christmas movie starts at 9pm.

  4. Brandy says:

  6. Ginger Snap says:

    Can’t believe TVLine dropped the ball on OUAT. Saving Henry is a much anticipated episode. Everything else will sit on my DVR until I am ready to watch.

    • Meg says:

      They didn’t drop the ball. The first link (before any of the shows listed) is to the entire article dedicated to the episode that airs tonight.

      • Ginger Snap says:

        Read the comments. People are confused and think the show is not on tonight.

        • tp says:

          To be fair, it clearly says “As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.” Directly below that is a link to OUAT. It’s been this way for months, people should know this by now.

    • Amy says:

      OUAT is on the right sidebar for tonight’s “What To Watch” and, as Meg said, they also included a link to their preview. They write up the synopses for ten shows airing tonight, and then include relevant links to some extra shows. :)

    • abz says:

      I really think TVLine should include every show and it’s time in the list even if there is a link posted as well since it seems to constantly confuse people who may gloss over the links.

  7. Tran 2.0 says:

    Homeland (three episodes left this season) and Total Divas.

  8. Nicole says:

    Is the mentalist new tonight?

  9. Stormy says:

    OUAT and Return to Downton Abbey

  10. Jules says:

    Can’t wait to watch Homeland. Quinn’s back!!! ahh Carrie.

  11. Paul J. Reedy says:

    Yes The Mentalist is new tonight. I I am anxious to see how this episode turns out.

  12. Joey says:

    Walking Dead, Talking Dead, and Comic Book Men.

  13. MM says:

    Yeah, it’s easy to miss the links to once and the mentalist because on quick glance it is disguised as the “stuff I probably don’t care about or have already read but is tangentially related to something mentioned in this article” links that tvline usually does. They should consider changing the format up to differentiate it.

  14. iMember says:

    Just one week before REVENGE is back. I can make it.

  15. tp says:

    I am really looking forward to Once. Not only because it’s been two weeks since the last one, mostly because I’m hoping it’s the end of Peter Pan and #SaveHenry. I know he’s supposed to be young but that kid has grown so much that it seems a tad bit ridiculous for him to be so naive.

  16. bobbie says:

    The Good Wife, Walking Dead, Getting On, OUAT

  17. Et al says:

    Ja’mie! She is so quiche.

  18. Sarah says:

    I think you mean Laura Linney is hosting the Downton Abbey special.

  19. Maryann says:

    Once Upon a Time
    The Mentalist (can’t wait for the reboot!)

  20. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Yay, Treme!!!
