    Wondering how low can Glee go before they move it out of that timeslot.

    I’m gonna give S.H.I.E.L.D. one last chance, it’s gotten better recently but it bores me.

    I miss The Mindy Project.

  2. Justin says:

    SHIELD, Rizzoli & Isles, Perception, Mind Games and Cougartown.

  3. Tessa says:

    New Girl-live

  4. Naazneen says:

    The orignals! yay!

  5. Alia says:

    S.H.I.E.L.D’s big problem is Skye, they should rename the show to Agents of Skye. I love the show but I see it sooooooooo cancelled.

    • Badpenny says:

      Skye isn’t the promise. It’s the premise. IE, lack of superheroes and stupid scripts full of youngsters to try and draw the younger crowd to watch it – on the idea that kids like to watch young people doing things.
      Look at last week’s episode. They killed 2 Shield agents and blew up a government facility to save Skye. How can killing 2 agents and blowing up the base not have major consequences for the group? But it won’t. The group will just keep on keeping on.
      I expect it to get renewed, though. While it has not beaten NCIS it’s held more rating then anything else to have gone against NCIS; and since 4 of the stars are unknowns they’re not commanding a huge fee. Plus Disney owns ABC and Marvel so it’s all in-house.

      • Anne says:

        To be far, they did ask nicely to be let in and explained the situation. I honestly could care less that the SHIELD agents died because they were clearly either complacent with Tahiti or really ignorant about there work place. Either way Hand is coming back after tonight’s episode and she will discipline them all, or try to unless Fury interferes.

        • Badpenny says:

          I can only assume you’ve never been in the military. Just because you “ask nicely” does not mean they let you into a secret military base without the proper authorization. Try getting into Area 51 by asking nicely, and then kill people stationed there when they don’t let you in, and see what happens.

      • Barrett Wallace says:

        Badpenny, you clearly were not paying attention. The site was not a SHIELD site, therefore they were not SHIELD agents. That being said, Coulson did not know them but he does know Skye and if it were I, I would put down two strangers to save the life of someone who had done a very good job to save me, consequence be damned.
        At this point SHIELD is in disarray and while there may be consequences at a later time, I would not expect it to happen any time soon.
        I too expect the show to be renewed, by the way.

        • Badpenny says:

          It was a government site; the site where Coulson was saved. While it might not have been a Shield-specific site, though I think it was a research branch of Shield, it was still a top secret government site. So I guess that means you’re OK with killing Marines on a base to save your Army pal? Or you’re OK with destroying an CIA facility just because you’re FBI?
          And Shield is not in disarray, yet. I don’t expect to see Shield go into disarray until after Fury gets killed in Winter Soldier. Right now you simply have Coulson’s team doing whatever it wants, and damn the consequences.

          • Maryann says:

            I know you likely do not consider it a spoiler but I do NOT appreciate learning this way that Nick Fury dies in Winter Soldier. That will have a major negative impact on my enjoyment of the movie.

          • Badpenny says:

            Sorry, Maryann, but if you have seen any of the Captain America commercials on TV or YouTube then you see them insinuate he’s dead and his body covered by a sheet.

  6. kd83954 says:

    I’ll be tuning into FOX tonight and will catch The Trophy Wife tomorrow on Hulu! I’m genuinely curious as to how Sif affects SHIELD so I may watch that as well.

  7. Eric7740 says:

    Pretty Little Liars
    The Originals
    Rizzoli & Isles
    Cougar Town

  8. bj says:

    I felt the same way about the two dead Shield agents, Badpenny. How can they justify killing two fellow agents who are just doing their job, to help Skye.

    I’m also miffed that NCIS and NCIS LA are repeats again!

    I’ll watch Rizzoli and Isles and Justified.

    • Jeff says:

      To me it wasn’t clear that they were Shield, or actually some kind of rogue group.

    • Barrett Wallace says:

      It wasn’t a SHIELD site. They were not SHIELD agents. Skye was instrumental in finding Coulson when he was being tortured by Poe and Raina, she saved him. Would you really just let her die?

      • Badpenny says:

        It was the site where Shield took Coulson to save him, so it clearly has some government connection. And let’s keep in mind that Coulson didn’t want Skye to get the cure once he saw who it came from; so he was clearly willing to let her die rather then get the treatment.

  9. Joey Padron says:

    Agents of Shield excited to see Lady Sif on show. New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, About A Boy, Kroll show and Jimmy Fallon.

  10. Tran 2.0 says:

    Pretty Little Liars (last episode before the season finale) and Chicago Fire. On Demand: Agents of SHIELD (Lady Sif vs. Lorelai).

  11. sarah says:

    Hmm! None of the shows I am watching are on the list!
    Originals (yes there is a sneak peak link)
    Chicago Fire

  12. Dave says:

    The Originals
    From Dusk Till Dawn
    The Goldbergs

    Giving up on Cougar Town, it has become painfully unfunny.
