  1. Teag says:

    Kitchen Nightmares then Hannibal.

  2. Annie says:

    I am so nervous – surprisingly so – about this logline for Hannibal. Please don’t turn Will into Hannibal Jr. Please.

    • Adam Lenhardt says:

      My thoughts exactly. Hopefully it’s just a ploy to get more intel about Hannibal.

    • kirads09 says:

      I agree. My running theory Will is basically pulling a “Hamlet” – faking being a certain way to catch the true murderer. Case of keep your friends close and your resident serial killer & cannibal closer? I don’t think he is really turning into Hannibal Jr. He WANTS Hannibal to think so though. This is his design.

      Obviously tonight I am watching Hannibal
      Also Grimm.

  3. Jeff says:

    Definitely Grimm, maybe Blue Bloods.

  4. SK says:

    Hawaii 5-0
    Hannibal – yes, please don’t let Will be Hannibal, Jr.

  5. Justin says:

    Hawaii 5-0
    Blue Bloods

  6. dman6015 says:


  7. Maryann says:

    Blue Bloods

  8. Roger says:

    Continuum hands down.

  9. Jerri says:

    Hawaii and Blue Bloods.

  10. Tran says:

    Hawaii Five-O (end is near for Catherine Rollins aka Michelle Borth).

  11. Joey Padron says:

    Hart of Dixie, DVR Hawaii Five-0 watch after and Jimmy Fallon. DVR The Writers Room.

  12. Brandy says:


  13. Fosho says:


  14. Steve F. says:

    Kitchen Nightmares with a sprinkling of Whose Line.

  15. meah says:

    Hawaii 5 o I think this is catherine’s last episode,its also the last time I would watch the show.I don’t support misogyny,plus crazy fans who pressure the show’s writers

    • lou says:

      From what has been posted all over the internet Michelle would go on twitter etc and unleash on people that commented about her! I do like her character and will miss her BUT it does not sound like it is anyone’s fault she is leaving but her own!

      • meah says:

        I follow her on twitter and I used to see the hate she got all the time,she replied a couple of people all of a sudden she’s rude?and she’s been getting hate for months non-stop,am not surprised that at a point she started replying those people.
        I really don’t care,my bigger problem is the lack of females that are regulars on Hawaii 5 o. 95% of the shows regular cast are males,only kono that’s left.the other females are only recurring

  16. Jared says:

    Hart of Dixie
    The Writers Room

  17. DB says:

    HOD and Who’s line is it anyway?

  18. Drew S says:

    If you’re a fan of Louis CK, the season premiere of his show “Louie” is on the FX channel tonight, too, followed by another new episode right after the first one!

  19. sarah says:

    Hawaii Five 0
    Blue Bloods

    I love Friday nights! From the preview I saw, Steve gets beat up pretty bad. I am sure that Catherine will sacrifice herself so Steve can be set free.

  20. rflairfan1 says:

    Writers Room only because it’s House of Cards.

  21. Britt says:

    Kitchen Nightmares
    Shark Tank
    Whose Line…?

  22. shar says:

    Hawaii 5-0
    Blue Bloods
    May to favorite shows!!!!

  23. Kendall says:

    I’ll admit that my only exposure to Hawaii Five-O is the original. When did the show morph into The Unit?

  24. Steve says:

    Hawaii Five-0
    Blue Bloods

  25. Norkir says:

    Hart of Dixie
    Blue Bloods
    Hannibal (DVR watch after BB)

  26. Whose Line and Continuum. Easy choice, not a fan of pretty much any other show on Fridays at the moment.

  27. jay says:

    I can’t wait to see the episode of 5-0. Me and some friends of mine were extra background during this episode.
