  • My busiest night of the week: Switched at Birth, The Fosters, Major Crimes, The Blacklist and Castle. Thank goodness for TiVo!

    • “Major Crimes” has lost an average 2.5 million viewers since Kyra left. The question is did those viewers bail because Brenda is no longer on the show, or because the ever-scowling Rusty Bieber IS on the show?

      When he showed up, the series went from being a good procedural to being Boys Town-lite. I can’t ever remember rooting for a serial killer, but if this guy will eliminate Rusty from the show, he has our full-hearted support.

    • Take all of yours and throw in HIMYM , Almost Human, Sleepy Hollow, Heart of Dixie and 2 Broke Girls and that’s my dvr for tonight. Plus E!

  • Why Amost Human is not listed? Isn’t the show on tonight or you guys did a mistake?

    Comment by Dean – January 13, 2014 07:56 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The WHAT TO WATCH column does not (nor could it, given the current laws of physics) list every new episode of every show, every day of every week. – Mgmt.

      • Your “What To Watch Tonight” column on the right is listing the description for last week’s Almost Human episode… is tonight a repeat?

    *Catch up with sometime during week (Mondays getting too crowded with goodness!)
    INTELLIGENCE (Sorry, Josh, Red takes priority)

    Comment by kirads09 – January 13, 2014 08:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • CBS On Demand for Josh… Monday at 10 overstuffed with 3 quality shows.. It’ll be interesting how Intelligence does without the NCIS lead-in and against 2 pretty popular shows… Maybe TNT has learned its lesson not to schedule against them with new stuff.. All of its 10pm Monday shows have not survived including King and Maxwell which was a pretty decent show.. It’s good that the author is still putting out the books… Maybe this series could go the way of Jesse Stone????

  • that nerd herd reference was clearly a dig at intelligence for being a chuck clone, right?

  • Awwwww too many good shows on one night! Spread it out of the week networks! I’m going to have to watch half of the shows online to catch up!

    Comment by Nancy – January 13, 2014 09:01 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Almost Human, Castle.
    Can’t believe HIMYM is still doing that slap thing – always thought that way too dangerous a thing to show, because some idiot somewhere will try it and knock a victim onto the pavement and give them a concussion or worse.

  • Monday is my busiest night of tv and my pvr can only record one show at a time so with time shifting that leaves a few shows out. Because of its Monday timeslot, even though I liked the pilot, I’m nixing Intelligence. Luckily, Bitten comes on Saturdays here in Canada and Lost Girl airs a repeat later in the week. I guess it’s a good thing Sleepy Hollow finishes in a couple weeks just in time for Masterchef Canada to premiere but will I do the night Klondike premieres? Klondike airs 2 hours on Jan.20 so I will have to skip a few shows that night. I work tonight so I’ll pvr How I Met Your Mother, Teen Wolf, Hart of Dixie, Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow.

  • Why does schedule say the finale of Hostages is tonight when it aired last week? On the side panel of your newsletter it posts the schedule.
