8 pm The Bachelor (ABC) | Season finale: Juan Pablo makes his final choice between Clare and Nikki. Will he choose either of them? Will he find true love? Will anyone miss him when this season is over? (Note: After the Final Rose airs at 10 pm, for those who just can’t resist a third hour of fauxmance.)

    Bones and Believe

  13. Sheila says:

    I know it’s TV and you have to accept a certain amount of weirdness, but I’m not sure I get the premise of Believe. To protect this superpowered child, they’re using a death row inmate? Um, what? Can you just randomly pluck people off death row for bodyguard duty?

  14. MK says:

    Teen wolf! Can’t wait!

  15. Matthew Weber says:

    Monday nights are just ridiculous. Bitten, Being Human, Star Crossed, The Following, BATB, Intelligence, Believe, The Fosters, Bates, Those Who Kill and Dallas will all be recorded to watch later.

    • John NYC says:

      Yep, just like a Thanksgiving every Monday: provides leftovers all week long.

      And I had scoffed about ever needing that 4 channel record capability of my newest dvr….

  22. Brandy says:

    Switched at Birth,Fosters,Star Crossed,BatB

  23. Et al says:

    Mondays @ 9 are ridiculous. Bates, Dallas, Following, Fosters, RuPaul, and probably another show or two I’m forgetting.

    Star Crossed
    Beauty & the Beast
    Teen Wolf
    Bates Motel

    I love the following, teen wolf, star crossed and switched at birth. Teen wolf has especially gotten great this season.

  29. James D says:


  30. bobbie says:

    Bones, Bates, Believe, The Following, Intelligence, The Fosters, Star-Crossed and Being Human.

  31. LAwoman says:

    HIMYM, Bates, Archer

  32. Tom says:

    Bones is probably better on Mondays, but is sure feels like Fox is giving the series “the treatment” — take the show off the air for a bunch of weeks, then quietly move it to another time slot, then cancel the show because of declining ratings.

  33. Rita Sioros says:

    I’m watching Bones!

  34. Liz says:

    Thanks to NBC’s heavy promo of Believe, I don’t think that I can sit and listen to, as well as watch, another minute of that little girl’s high-pitch scream as a flock of pidgeons swirl some baddie AGAIN. I…I can’t. It’s The Following and Bates Motel for me. I’ll cap the night off with another viewing of the fantastic season finale of True Detective.

  35. Angela says:

    I’m sensing some extra-creepy mother/son scenes in this one.
    And that’s saying something!
    Seriously, though, yeah, from the clips I’ve seen in promos and commercials and that…this should be veeeeery interesting.

  36. barbara says:

    I’m loving the new show intelligence josh does excellent job and glad to see marg back. missed not seeing castle tho cause of the idiotic bachelor. enjoyed seeing bones also

  37. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what
    all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
