On last week’s Parks and Recreation, everything seemed so bleak. After all, one of the local groups were predicting that the world was going to end. Tom threw a mega bash with the last cash he had left from his failed entertainment biz with buddy John Ralphio. Leslie, Ron, and Ben monitored the park where the group was camping out for their end of the world campaign. When Leslie saw Ben doing some flirting with another woman, she realized that she may not be over him. Andy had a bucket list, and he and April ran around crossing things off his crazy list.

Tonight, Leslie asks Ben, Andy, and April to help host a Model U.N. for the local high school. Chris asks Ann for some dating advice, and Ron tries to find a replacement for Tom.

Watch an all new episode at 8:30/7:30c on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

Last week’s Bones returned to big numbers and an even bigger sigh of relief for—I believe—most fans. Booth and Bones still have the chemistry they’ve had for the previous six seasons, even though they are officially a couple, living together, and having a baby. The rest of the gang was in fine form, as well. How freakin adorable was baby Michael?! So cute! I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and if you enjoyed last week, you’ll love this week. There’s plenty of Booth/Bones, the case is good, there are some fun shockers, and a new squintern that you can’t help but love.

On tonight’s episode, “The Hot Dog in the Competition,” the team identifies the remains of a competitive eating champion days before the Gluttony Games, a premiere eating competition with a $10,000 prize, Finn is met with hostility and skepticism, despite his brilliance, and Brennan makes an announcement. Luke Kleintank (Gossip Girl, No Ordinary Family) guest stars as Finn Abernathy, the new squintern.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

It’s been a rough week for my family, and one thing that helps is laughter. Thank goodness The Big Bang Theory is on tonight, because that show is always non-stop laughter for me. I loved seeing Sheldon cuddling Amy and how they negotiated for her to even get that physical contact. I can’t wait until Sheldon and Amy have a real moment. I think they’ll get there—eventually.

On tonight’s episode, “The Ornithophobia Diffusion,” Leonard and Penny try hanging out alone, and Sheldon must overcome his fear of birds.

Tonight, FX is airing a double-header of new episodes of The League! This show just keeps getting more outrageous each week! Last week, we got yet another hilarious Taco storyline, in which he decided to invent a new offline social network called MyFace. It was great how they weaved this throughout all the other storylines, including having Taco’s offline “photo wall” solve the mystery of Jenny & Pete’s “first time” anniversary. This series may be in the middle of its third season, but it shows no signs of slowing down!

In tonight’s first episode, “Yobogoya!” Jenny jeopardizes Ruxin’s chance to work on a big case with his boss, Mr. Hudabega (Ray Liotta). Meanwhile, Taco competes in a jingle contest for a fast-food restaurant, and Pete nurses a grudge against a traffic cop. In tonight’s second episode, “Carmenjello,” Kevin and Jenny lack privacy, Sofia accuses Ruxin of “breast favoritism,” and Pete tries to defend his high-school track record.

See the back to back new episodes on FX at 10:30/9:30c & 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of The League @ Clicker.

I’m so glad that I’ve gotten back into Grey’s Anatomy this season. Last week’s episode, “Heart in a Box,” was one of the best running theme shows in Grey’s history. The heart played a roll in everyone’s decisions and ultimate actions. It directed the hearts of the staff of Seattle Grace. George O’Malley’s mom returned for treatment, which brought back some bad, but mostly good memories of George. I didn’t care about George and Lizzie when they were around, so this story was lost on me. But I’m really enjoying Scott Foley as Teddy’s husband, Henry. And as a running arc, he has been involved with the diabetes trial. At the end of “Heart in a Box,” we see him coughing up blood. It just brings on the anticipation for this week’s episode.

“Dark with the Night” brings Henry in for emergency surgery, but Teddy has to attend to another patient and leaves her husband in the hands of her friends and colleagues. Are they good enough? Teddy has complete faith in Cristina’s abilities, but does Cristina believe enough in herself? Meredith and Derek finally receive news about Zola. Meanwhile, Alex and Meredith encounter a life-threatening predicament when they go out of the hospital to save a young child at a neighboring hospital. Elsewhere in the hospital, Callie and Jackson must defend their actions when their patient suffers a post-surgical complication.

Grey’s Anatomy is again about the staff as individuals, but working together as a team for a common good.

Last week on The Office, fans had a hell of a scare! The teaser promo kept saying that someone was going to get fired, and fans were up in arms. Was one of our favorite Dunder Mifflin flunkies really going to be fired? Thankfully, the answer ended up being no. We already lost Steve Carell as Michael Scott… Not sure the fandom could take another loss like that! Dwight backed down and protected his coworkers, and it showed that a little shred of decency does reside in him!

On tonight’s episode, Pam teams up with Dwight in order to prove that Jim thinks her temporary replacement is pretty. Also, Robert California asks to join Andy, Darryl, and Kevin’s band.

I’m so happy Burn Notice is back. Last week, Michael and Fi had to go to Puerto Rico to abduct a financial hacker whose software they needed for Anson—the guy who burned Michael with the CIA and who is now blackmailing him to keep Fiona out of prison for blowing up the building and killing the security guards at the end of the first half of the season. Back in Miami, Sam and Jesse trained Maddy to steal some needed info from a computer at the police station. I always love seeing Maddy working with them on a case, and last week was no different. Anyway, Michael is totally worried about Anson hurting Fi, Maddy, Sam, or Jesse, so it’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out!

On tonight’s episode, “Breaking Point,” when gang warfare claims the life of one of Michael’s childhood friends, he teams up with the victim’s brother to entrap the gang in a weapons scheme.

Check it out tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Burn Notice @ Clicker.

Sexy vampires, werewolves, witches … did I mention sexy vampires? It’s Thursday night, so that can only mean an all new episode of The Vampire Diaries. Sexy is never a bad thing, and with the Salavatore brothers, it’s a wonderful thing. Last week was an edge of your seat episode, with Damon going to great lengths to save his brother.

On this week’s fall finale, “Homecoming,” Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) opens up to Elena about why homecoming is so important to her, leaving Elena with conflicting emotions. Caroline and Matt are both shocked at Tyler’s behavior throughout the evening. The night takes a surreal turn when Klaus puts his latest plan into action. Determined to outsmart Klaus, Damon enters into a dangerous partnership, leading to a terrifying turn of events. The band My Morning Jacket performs in the party scenes.

To see how the supernatural celebrate homecoming, tune in to The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Vampire Diaries @ Clicker.
