Make it work! That’s right, Project Runway fans, your favorite catch phrase and show are back on the air for an all new season. Your favorite judges are back as well, and all new guest judges will be making panel appearances. Tonight’s season opener has Christina Ricci holding that very honor! See which sixteen designers will make the cut, literally, and start picking your front runner for the coveted spot as the top designer!

Tonight, as a show first, during the season premiere, twenty designers must go in front of Heidi, Michael, Tim, and Nina to make their case as to why they deserve one of the sixteen coveted spots for the season. Once the sixteen are chosen, they will barely have a chance to celebrate, before they are woken up at the crack of dawn and wisked away to start the toughest challenge that any season has ever faced!

Watch the season begin at 9/8c on Lifetime! Learn where to find episodes online of Project Runway @ Clicker.

Rookie Blue has been killing it this season. On one hand, I was upset for Andy when Luke cheated on her with Jo, but on the other, I was happy! 🙂 It means that Sam and Andy could be on the road to being together. Then there’s the odd chemistry brewing between Dov and Gail that is going to inevitably break Chris’ heart. *sigh* So much delicious drama, it’s hard to keep up with. 🙂

On top of all this romantic drama, there is non-stop police drama, as well. It’s a fabulous show, and that’s why it’s one of our favorites around here. [Note from Jenny: What can I say that Megan didn’t? Seriously, it’s one of both of our favorites, so don’t you think you should check it out?!]

On tonight’s episode, an informant’s murder points to the involvement of a dangerous street gang, and the division feels the pressure to solve the case when Gail’s mother, Superintendant Peck (Lauren Holly, NCIS), shows up. Gail is assigned to protect the only known witness to the crime. Andy’s relationship with Luke is put in danger after a shocking disclosure from Rosati.

Tune in to ABC at 10/9c to see if Luke’s actions from last week are brought to light this week. Learn where to find episodes online of Rookie Blue @ Clicker.

The last couple of episodes of Burn Notice have been intense, what with Michael being set up for the murder of his new CIA partner. Lauren Stamile is guest starring again tonight as Agent Pearce, who is trying to solve the man’s murder, and who has her eye on Michael as the killer. Michael, of course, is doing everything he can to dissuade her of this. It’ll be interesting to see where that storyline takes us tonight!

On tonight’s episode, Michael must help the CIA retrieve a weapon from a violent Serbian mob. As part of the plan, Sam goes undercover with a heroin dealer, but Sam is left hanging when the CIA disagrees with his methods. [Note from Jenny: The previews for this look scary! I hope Sam survives!] Todd Stashwick guest stars.

Check it out tonight on USA Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Burn Notice @ Clicker.

At last week’s Futurama Comic-Con panel, they showed us clips from this season’s remaining episodes, and it looks like we are in for a treat (especially the unique season finale)! I love how this show mixes sci-fi and pop culture into a hilarious animated half-hour. There isn’t a single character on Futurama that I don’t love—this is one of the shows I really look forward to each Thursday!

In tonight’s episode, “All the Presidents’ Heads,” the crew alters history when they travel back in time.

See the new episode tonight on Comedy Central at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Futurama @ Clicker.
