    Intelligence

  6. Francine says:

    Castle. Really looking forward to tonight’s episode.

  7. fy says:

    Almost Human needs all the live support it can get! Should be an epic ep, too. Gina Carano looks awesome.

  8. Carol says:

    Oh I’ll be watching ‘Bitten’ on Syfy. This show needs to be more on TvLine’s radar.

    • Lambsilencer says:

      Yes, “Bitten” is getting better with every episode. And so does Laura Vandervoort. She was a bit bland in the first episode, and I questioned if she would be able to carry this show. But from what I saw in episode 3, I think she will be.

  9. Julie says:

    Almost Human, The Following and Castle for me.

  10. Tran 2.0 says:

    Switched at Birth, The Fosters and Castle. On Demand: Almost Human w/ former MMA babe Gina Carano who kick butt in F&F 6 and John Larroquette of Night Court fame.

  11. Rich Abey says:

    It’s #SuperCastleMondaynight! Itching to see how the Caskett wedding plans proceed this week.

  12. marilyn says:

    Beauty and the Beast.

  13. Joey says:

    HIMYM, The Following, and Being Human.

  14. Liz says:

    Dang good night for tv; Castle, Almost Human, Switched at Birth, Hollywood Game Night, Fosters, Being Human, 2 Broke Girls, Being Human. I’ll PVR Beauty and the beast, but it’s lost me this season
    .
    Lost Girl and Bitten air on the weekend here, but I’d be them tonight if I lived in the US.

  15. Kate says:

    Can”t wait for Castle!

  16. Brandy says:

    Switched at Birth,The Fosters,HoD,BatB,2 Broke Girlls

  17. Raines says:

    Castle’s delay wasn’t worth the one week. The show’s writing has really gone down this year. It is almost sad to think that is a show that I used to love. In their quest to have a more romantic season, they have killed the show’s dynamic. ABC should consider changes at the end of the season. And I’d start with the showrunner Andrew Marlowe. He has clearly lost sight of the show.

He has clearly lost sight of the show and what made it popular.

  19. Raines says:

    Yes. I am saying he should be fired. No one else could do a worse job than him this season. He has taken the messing with the fans to the extreme and I am tired of his gimmicky anti climatic writing. And I know I am not the only person who feels this way. The problem is that whenever a fan gets critical another fan feels the need to toss them under the bus.

  20. Raines says:

    Stop liking the poor quality castle fans. Demand decent stories and decent writing. Them not taking themselves seriously is getting noticed. How long before the network says enough is enough?

    • Deo says:

      Seriously?! Not everyone agrees with you about “poor quality”…I, for one, don´t! Some episodes are better than others, that´s all.

  21. Kris says:

    Will be DVR’ing Beauty and Lost Girl. But will be watching Bitten, Being Human and Teen Wolf

  22. Hmm says:

    DVR How I Me Your Mother, since I need to watch last week’s. I’ll be watch Beauty and the Beast live; really hoping ratings will go up and we can save the show somehow. I’m not ready for it to be done. On that note, I have no use for Tori and hope she understands fairly soon there is no getting between Vincent and Catherine.

  23. John NYC says:

    “Robin and Ted reminisce about previous relationships”

    Oh please, enough already.

    • FatherOctavian says:

      You’ve got to pad 72 hours of story time into 24 episodes somehow.

    • Goodbye Universe Guy says:

      Let’s give it a chance – at the very least, this episode, ‘Sunrise’, may be a nice counterpoint to season 1’s episode – “Nothing Good Happens After 2 A.M.” Maybe this time, something good will happen.

      We haven’t had a Ted-Robin scene since last May’s “Something Old”. I have a feeling this episode will turn out to be one of Season 9’s very best. Granted, the bar may be set a bit low in S9, but this episode should be quite good. At the very least, it will Robin [CS] as chance to push her character a bit harder than she’s been allowed to thus far in S9. A chance to see the ‘old Robin’ an action.

    • Pop Vulture says:

      Hasn’t this whole series been one long reminiscence about previous relationships?

  24. Ally Oop says:

    Teen Wolf, HIMYM and Hart of Dixie for me.

  25. Jared says:

    Hart of Dixie
    Beauty & the Beast
    Teen Wolf
    Love & Hip Hop
    The Fosters
    Switched at Birth

  26. Tom Mc says:

    After being very disappointed with The Following last season, I watched the premiere of season 2 and gave up. Still incredibly stupid writing, no improvement. Great cast is squandered. I predict no season 3.

  27. Columbus says:

    Switched at Birth, The Fosters, Castle

  28. Mary Morris says:

    The Fosters
    Castle
    Intelligence on demand (pardon the pun)

  29. Maryann says:

    Beauty and the Beast

  30. bobbie says:

    Being Human, Almost Human, Castle, The Fosters, The Following

  31. sarah says:

    Hollywood Game Night
    Intelligence

  32. Steve says:

    Bitten
    Lost Girl
    Teen Wolf
    Switched at Birth
    The Fosters
    Almost Human
    The Following
    Intelligence
    Castle

  33. TexasGreatGrams says:

    Almost Human, Beauty and the Beast, The Following, Castle and Intelligence (which I’ve grown to like). Glad I have a DVR

  34. Bob Johnson says:

    “10 pm Intelligence (CBS) | Gabriel and Riley search for a senator’s daughter after she is kidnapped in Mexico. Peter Coyote (Law and Order: LA) guest stars.”

    Aren’t they stretching credibility just a bit by having Peter Coyote be Marg Helgenberger’s father? Sure, the 17-year age difference makes it technically possible, but still, it’s a stretch.

  35. Pop Vulture says:

    Almost Human is the only can’t-miss tv tonight for me…
