    Is Blue Bloods even on tonight? I know my TV Guide says there is a basketball game on instead. UGH!! Sometimes I hate living in ACC country!!!

  6. Elizabeth says:

    I would watch Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods, but they’re being pre-empted until late Sunday night/early Monday morning in my area for basketball. Grr.

  7. Maryann says:

    Blue Bloods
    Hawaii Five-0
    (Basketball must be regional–none where I live according to TV Guide)

  8. Eric7740 says:

    Raising Hope

  9. Tran 2.0 says:

    Hawaii Five-O (very happy it got renewed) :-)

  13. Valentina says:

    Veronica Mars Movie!!!!

  14. sarah says:

    Blue Bloods

  15. Et al says:

    Veronica Mars!

  16. Ron says:

    I typically watch Shark Tank, but not sure how I feel about the idea of an all-kids episode. Could be interesting or could be very boring. Will DEFINITELY be watching Hannibal!!!!

  17. Joey Padron says:

    Hawaii Five-O and Enlisted.

  18. R.O.B. says:

    Really glad you’re giving Banshee some press – this is easily one of the most underrated shows on TV, a must watch. There are so many awesome, kicka55 characters on this show that if JJ Abrahms was sat down for a Banshee binge-watching weekend, he’d cast at least 7 people from this show in Star Wars and be done with it. Would Lucas Hood not make one bada55 jedi?

  21. Britt says:

    Undercover Boss
    Shark Tank

  22. Gerald says:

    When I get home from the Veronica Mars Movie I will watch Enlisted. It sounds like a great episode. Although I will have to wrap my head around Derrek not being Piz. Chris Lowell does them both so well.

  23. GaMtGrl says:

    So glad Jorge Garcia is now a series regular on Hawaii Five-0!

  24. bobbie says:

    The Neighbors, Grimm, Hannibal, Helix, and Rake

  25. Georgia says:

    Rake, Grimm, Bluebloods and Cold Justice. Great Friday night viewing!

  27. Chaosrainz says:

    Last Man Standing, Raising Hope, Enlisted, Grimm & Blue Bloods.
    Those of you who are having your shows pre-empted…try Hulu Plus. Even if it’s not on in your area, it should be up the next morning. :)

    For those of you watching Veronica Mars, I wanted to mention something that ticks me off. Veronica Mars is a Time Warner movie. But it is apparently not available on demand on Time Warner Cable!
