    Just Major Crimes for me.

    • Angie says:

      I’m with you Justin, Major Crimes for me too. I just hope Rusty stays safe:)

    • ewwww! says:

      Agreed. Also, Cake Boss is the worse. The whole staff seems totally off putting and their cakes looks lame. I visually prefer Ace if Cakes. I’d hang out with Duff and his crew any day.

  2. Aimee says:

    Looking forward to Major Crimes. Everything else is a rerun or I don’t care.

  3. Maryann says:

    Not a thing there. If my kids were small, would tune in to Rudolph.

  4. Maryann says:

    Nothing to watch this time of year is a which came first the chicken or the egg situation. Is there nothing to watch because no one watches? Or does no one watch because nothing is on? I know I would watch a new episode of my favorite show if it aired now — unless I missed it because I assumed nothing was on.

  5. Eric7740 says:

    Major Crimes!!!

  6. Tran 2.0 says:

    WWE Monday Night Raw for me tonight. I’ll wait next Monday for a fresh episode of Almost Human and in two weeks The Blacklist returns with fresh episodes.

  7. c-mo says:

    Only a re-run of Castle’s 100th for me tonight…I’ll be watching while pining for next week’s looooooong awaited next new episode.

  8. Steve says:

    Major Crimes

  9. wrstlgirl says:

    Gotta admit the Breaking Bad marathon pretty much owned my weekend. I’ll likely watch more of it tonight :-)

  10. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    MAJOR CRIMES! Missed last week’s EP.Going to watch it before the new ep. comes on later today!

  11. Dav says:

    Definitely watching Major Crimes but eagerly awaiting the return of The Blacklist!

  12. Stormy says:

    Sixteen candles on AXSTV. Nostalgia trip.

  13. Kathleen says:

    Am I the only one who hopes they resolve the whole Rusty situation so that he GOES AWAY? Such an annoying character. I was hoping for a happy ENDING for him when his dad showed up; when his mom showed up; when Raider’s ex-husband showed up; when the psychologist showed up…anyone.
