    Hart of Dixie :)

  2. Justified for my husband…I might try Body of Proof, probably NCIS too

  3. Leo says:

    Tune in to Golden Boy. Saw the pilot online and Theo James, though looks more like an underwear model rather than a police commissioner, it all works out methinks. Strong characters’ introduction and it reeled you in.

    Was their ever a critique of Golden Boy on this site? A quick search didn’t turn up anything with an opinion on if the show was any good.

  15. Kathy Lambert says:

    What a great season of NCIS so far. I love the way they paced the season so far. I am really excited to see how they carry forward the Ziva part because I can not believe that after saying all she wanted was “revenge” that she has returned to her job with no after effects. Great season if not the best and the ratings prove it.

  16. JBC says:

    NCIS and White Collar. I will just have to catch Golden Boy online. I can’t miss White Collar, there are only two episodes to go.

  17. stevie says:

  25. Win says:

  27. Bob says:

    I still want to know why they haven’t done a ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ reunion on NCIS! Is that too much to ask before these two octogenarians (David McCallum and Robert Vaughn) permanently hang it up? What, do they not like each other?

  28. NCIS & NCIS Los Angeles!!! Looking forward to seeing Palmer and Ducky in action tonight. :-)

    Lying Game
    White collar
    There are so many choices to choose on Tuesday night I wish I could watch them all live.

  32. Tracy says:

    Studio 60 was an amazing show and every scene between Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford was magic! I can’t wait to see these two incredibly talented actors share the stage again! If you enjoy quality television and haven’t seen the show I would highly recommend picking it up on Amazon – you won’t be disappointed!

  33. Tracy says:

    Of course, something is off between Zoe and Wade – they are completely mismatched! In real life, this relationship would never have started and if by some alcohol induced miracle it had started the relationship would have ended as soon as they got tired of sleeping together!

  34. Meredith says:

    PLL, Hart of Dixie, Cult, Go On, The New Normal, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Golden Boy, Justified. The busiest night of all for my DVR :)

  35. Eric says:

    Pretty Little Liars
    The New Normal
    Cougar Town

  36. MaryAnn says:

    I will be curious to see how “Golden Boy” does in the ratings. I watched the premiere online, and I just couldn’t get past his sense of entitlement, and how he actually got away with his stunts. This kid just looks like a spoiled brat just to look at him. I will watch a couple of episodes online, but … my biggest thought is that it is messing up the momentum for “Vegas.” Two missed weeks, then a repeat when it comes back? Are they TRYING to kill it?

  37. Bradley Whitford? YES!
    Legend in everything he does.
    If only he had actually been Red John & in more than one episode of The Mentalist as well.
    LemonLyman.com hahaha!
