Last week on Parks and Recreation, Leslie and Ben made a national mockery out of themselves. Okay, it was just a model UN, but they still crashed and burned hardcore. Leslie got caught up in her feelings for Ben and the possibility he could be into someone else that she completely ran amuck and ruined a special event for some high schoolers. Let’s hope that Leslie can learn that she either has to move on from Ben, or she has to embrace her feelings and let them have a go at a real relationship – even if it may effect her candidacy.

Tonight, Leslie uses her new tourist attraction in order to spend time with Ben. Ron and April encourage Andy to further his education, while Chris assigns a logo redesign to Tom and Jerry.

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

I love Burn Notice. I have since the beginning. And I’ve hated the bad guys before. But Anson has to be the one I have hated the most since the show began. I can’t find anything good about him. lol Last week’s ep was really rough for Michael. Not only was he doing a job for the sociopath, Anson, but he was also helping get revenge against the murderer of one of his best childhood friends. The end, when they were getting ready to go to the memorial service… very touching. I love how Michael set the gang leader up. lol

On tonight’s episode, “Necessary Evil,” Michael runs point on a CIA rescue mission involving a scientist kidnapped by an African warlord. Meanwhile, Sam and Jesse go undercover as microchip specialists but quickly get in over their heads.

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

I love The Big Bang Theory for so many reasons, but one of the main reasons is Sheldon. How could you not be amused by him? He’s FABULOUS! Last week’s episode, Sheldon was forced to try overcome his fear of birds, when a pigeon refused to leave the window ledge. Lately, there has been a lot of protective behaviour over Amy. Sheldon doesn’t realize that he wants her and even finds himself jealous. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition,” Sheldon becomes jealous when Stuart from the comi-book store asks Amy on a date, and Sheldon’s forced to reconsider his relationship with Amy.

To see if Sheldon finally realizes he loves Amy, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

I had thought that The Office was well past its prime by the time Steve Carell left. However, since Andy has taken over as the new boss, the show has gotten a breath of fresh air. We are getting a lot of outrageous entire-cast interactions, which is one of the things I have always really liked about this show. Last week, Pam teamed up with Dwight to try to prove Jim was lying when he said he didn’t find the new temp attractive. In classic Office fashion, things went out of control and got real awkward when Dwight resorted to grabbing Jim’s junk to check if he was aroused. This is the kind of stuff that made me love this show when it first started—not package-grabbing, per se :), but rather the ability to make me squirm and feel totally uncomfortable while still laughing out loud. While I’m still not a fan of Robert California and find Gabe so creepy—I wonder if they are eventually going to reveal him as the Scranton Strangler—I still really enjoy the rest of the ensemble and am looking forward to more.

In tonight’s episode, “Gettysburg,” Andy hopes to inspire and motivate the group by taking them on a field trip to Gettysburg. Some staffers remain at the office, and Robert California tasks them to hatch the company’s next big idea.

See the new episode tonight on NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Office @ Clicker.

It’s been two weeks since the last episode of The Mentalist, and I’m glad it’s back! I really enjoy this show. Last ep, the blogger turned out to be the killer, and we’ll never know if they’d have gotten him for the crimes, because Red John killed him. Yes, Red John is back! I mean, I knew Jane hadn’t killed him, so it wasn’t really a surprise.

On tonight’s episode, “Pink Tops,” in order to find the killer of an undercover narcotics cop, Jane and the CBI team retrace her investigation. Samaire Armstrong (Dirty Sexy Money) guest stars as Summer Edgecombe, a prostitute who helps Cho with the investigation. Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) guest stars as Sergeant Don Henderson.

Dr. Brennan pregnant with Booth’s child on Bones is a mixed reception from most of us. I love them as a couple, but still can’t believe they
are together. Brennan pregnant is like a fascinating science project you just can’t get enough of. Last week, we watched as they solved another case, but more importantly, we found out that Booth and Bones are having a girl. Bones made the mistake of not thinking it’s a big deal for Booth not to be there for the ultrasound, but eventually learned better. It’s amazing to watch their personality grow together as a couple. Very interesting.

On tonight’s episode, “The Prince in the Plastic,” a toy-company CEO (guest star Morgan Fairchild), grants Booth and Sweets access to its top-secret lab after the remains of a female executive are discovered in a shrink-wrapped doll. Meanwhile, Daisy helps Sweets in his quest for a permit to carry a gun.

Tune in to FOX at 9/8c to see how crazy this whole Brennan pregnant thing really is. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

Michael Emerson still kinda gives me the creeps, but Person of Interest is a pretty decent show. Last week’s more than usual mob-centric episode was the best for me, because the background information is what I’m more interested in. The number turned out to be a good bad guy who was trying to get back his rightful place in the Mob world, and Reese had trouble with the dilemma of turning him in or letting him go. Carter is getting closer and closer to figuring Reese out. How long will this drag out, tho? There’s a tension there that could be really good if they play it well.

“Foe” brings in a Cold War spy whose past has come back to haunt him. Unless you’re a history buff, the Cold War stuff will be pretty much lost in the action—which is a shame, since it could be good. But then again, I’m a history geek, too.

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Person of Interest @ Clicker.
