The challenge the designers faced last week on Project Runway Allstars was to create a tasteful outfit that was inspired by the color and flavor of various gelatos. Miranda Kerr was a guest judge, and the winning look was something she was going to wear to an industry event. Kara and Mondo struggled, but the winning design was Michael’s divine creation and April was sent packing.

On an all new episode, “Clothes Off Your Back,” the contestants must ask strangers on the street for their clothing, which they will use to design a whole new outfit.

I loved the last new episode of Person of Interest. Carter finally sees what Reese and Finch are all about, although she’s still in the dark about the machine and about Detective Fusco. That was the funniest part of the episode—Fusco totally telling on her to Reese and Finch and Carter trying to be all secretive, which was NOT working. She was incredibly obvious as she took and made secret phone calls there in the station. The POI of the week was a lawyer from the wrong side of the tracks who had turned her life around and now worked to help people accused of crimes who she felt didn’t deserve what they were getting. The only part I found odd was that Reese was still there when Carter came in to arrest the bad guy. Technically, he’s still a person of interest/suspect/fugitive dude and supposed to be hiding. So having the two of them together in front of witnesses…probably not a good idea! The other big thing was how secretive Finch was being about the son of his partner, and how Reese had Fusco tailing Finch (although did it look to anyone else like Fusco wasn’t being very secretive about it? lol Finch has to know what he looks like!). Anyway, I’m interested to see where they take storyline.

On tonight’s episode, “Root Cause,” Reese and Finch’s latest POI is a down-on-his-luck man who may have reached his breaking point. As the case evolves, the duo calls upon a former POI for help, the resourceful and well-connected Zoe (Paige Turco, Damages).

So many new episodes on tonight, and I’m starting with an all new episode of Grey’s Anatomy. The last new episode was a celebration of Richard’s 10,000 surgery and of Zola’s 1st birthday. There was also a whole lot of drama going on with Christina and Owen, where they finally had a breaking point. Owen admitted that he was upset that Christina killed their baby. It was a sad episode, but happy, too. Such a mixture of emotions. I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes with Christina and Owen. It’s going to be dramatic.

On tonight’s episode, “If/Then,” Meredith dreams about what-ifs in flashbacks. Among them: her mother didn’t get Alzheimer’s; she hadn’t met Derek in a bar, and he’d stayed with Addison; Bailey had remained as meek as she was as an intern; and Callie and Owen had become a couple.

Last week on NY Ink, Ami drew an inspiring tattoo and got the entire shop involved with a group of teens at risk. Tom gave Robear a ton of grief over some lip plumping, which rubbed Robear the wrong way.

This week, on “Boiling Point,” Billy’s temper may get the best of him, forcing him to choose between Ami’s friendship and his career. Also, Robear gets set up on a bunch of speed dates by the shop ladies.

I didn’t think The Office should have continued after Steve Carell left. However, they have managed to have some really fun episodes without him. In last week’s episode, Robert California hosted a pool party at his expansive compound as a last hurrah before his divorce. Jim kept trying to quickly make his mark on the party so he could leave early and get home ASAP. However, he never managed to escape—until the skinny dipping began. Meanwhile, Erin teamed up with Dwight, flirting with one another to try to make Andy jealous. I’m not generally a shipper, but I really hope that Andy and Erin get back together—they are so perfect for each other.

In tonight’s episode, “Jury Duty,” Jim returns from jury duty, only to have to deal with Dwight’s pesky questions about the details of the case. Elsewhere, Angela and her senator beau welcome their baby.

Another show I’m digging on Thursdays is The Finder. Last week was great, because a: we got to see Geoff Stults in high heels, b: the case itself—with the female serial killer—was interesting, and c: we finally saw a reason for Willa to be there. She ended up exposing Leo’s secret, about his daughter and wife, after sneaking onto his computer, and then she tried to settle the score with the guy responsible for their deaths by beating him up. Sure, it was the wrong thing to do, but I loved seeing her so upset about what he had done to Leo and his family. It showed she really cared. This show is coming into its own, I think, which is great.

On tonight’s episode, “Swing and a Miss,” Isabel’s new boyfriend Frank, an all-star baseball athlete, gets robbed, and Walter steps in to help find his stolen collectibles. But in the process, Walter learns Frank has lost something more meaningful than memorabilia. Then, to earn Willa’s trust, Leo and Walter bring her in on the case. Lance Gross (House of Payne) guest stars.

The Big Bang Theory has been hitting it out of the park lately, and I have been loving it. I am enjoying watching Leonard and Penny tackle the dating game again. On top of that, I’m really enjoying Sheldon and Amy’s odd relationship, because it’s just so different. I’m hoping at some point before the end of the season, we see Sheldon and Amy really kiss—like knock your socks off kissing.

Tonight’s new episode, “The Friendship Contraction,” the friendship contract is in danger of being nullified when Leonard tires of Sheldon’s selfish ways, and Wolowitz is spacing out over selecting an astronaut nickname for himself.

To allow yourself a good a chuckle, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

The Mentalist is such a great show, and Patrick Jane is one of my favorite characters on TV. He doesn’t worry about playing by the rules if it means getting to the truth—such as putting the little ball in the guy’s armpit so it made it seem like he had no pulse in that arm. That was a cool trick. haha Last week’s episode was really all about Van Pelt, though. As she dealt with the case, she also dealt with seeing her ex-fiance, Craig O’Laughlin, who tried to kill her last season. He was everywhere, and then he even saved her life by warning her that someone was about to try and kill her. Of course, she was imagining him, since he is dead…but still…I think maybe it was healing for her in a way. And THEN! Right at the end of the episode, Rigsby’s girlfriend, who had been trying to get together with him the whole episode—and he was unavailable because he was worried about and then looking for a missing Van Pelt—told him she was pregnant! OMG! Seriously? No way…He and Van Pelt need to be together, darnit! 🙁 Eek.

On tonight’s episode, “Red is the New Black,” Jane and the CBI narrow down the list of suspects after a disgraced clothing designer on the verge of a comeback becomes a fashion victim. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Darcy continues her investigation into finding Red John. Catherine Dent (The Shield) and Alicia Witt (Friday Night Lights) guest stars.

Check it out tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mentalist @ Clicker.

In television land, we have vampires, werewolves, and now sexy witches on The Secret Circle. Those witches are just too amazing for words. There is a balance between dark and light magic, romance, and so much more. If you haven’t given this show a chance yet, it’s not too late to catch up. You need to see if Cassie can discover the secrets to her past and rise above it.

On tonight’s episode, “Medallion,” Cassie enlists the Circle’s help when she receives a frightening warning about the witch hunters’ return. At the same time, her true feelings for Adam and Jake surface during a birthday party that Ethan decides to throw with the help of Diana. Meanwhile, Faye and Melissa take their inner power to a chilling new level when they try a little of Lee’s “Devil’s Spirit.”
