Last week on NY Ink, Billy’s temper got the best of him, and he and Ami got into an all out verbal smackdown. This ended in Billy quitting working at NY Ink. Robear was set up on a rousing round of speed dates by the ladies of the shop.

Tonight, on “Movin’ On Up,” after Billy has quit Wooster Street, he seeks out some help from Chris in order to try and help make it as a tattoo artist. Meanwhile, Megan begins to fall for a friend.

Catch it all on TLC at 9/8c! Learn where to find episodes online of NY Ink @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, and I’ll be making it work with Project Runway All Stars!

I am so glad Detective Carter knows now that Reese and Finch are the good guys on Person of Interest. We didn’t have much of Carter and really nothing of Fusco last ep, because the focus was really on Reese, Finch, and former POI Zoe, the fixer. It was kind of cool to see her again. It was also interesting to meet someone that maybe rivaled or even beat Finch in what he does so well. That it is a woman is even more interesting. It’ll be fun to see if there is some connection to either Reese’s or Finch’s past.

On tonight’s episode, “Wolf and Cub,” the Machine identifies Darren, a teenager whose brother was just murdered, as the next POI. Meanwhile, Finch is growing concerned that the son of his former business partner is dangerously close to finding out about The Machine. In “not-so-happy-news for Jenny,” Astro (The X Factor) guest stars as the POI.

I was late to join the party for The Secret Circle, but once I caught up, I was under their spell. This show is chock-full of drama, sexual tension, and delicious magic. Last week’s episode was a huge game changer, as we saw Cassie learn how to use the medallion and figure out that her father was actually alive. Cassie also decided that Jake was too bad for her, because Adam informed her that Jake had killed people. Speaking of bad… Melissa was introduced to the drug, Devil’s Spirit, by Faye, and now Melissa is starting the downward spiral to darkness. As for sexual tension, how about that intense kiss between Jake and Faye at the end of the episode?

On tonight’s episode, “Valentine,” in honor of the holiday, Faye and Melissa throw a girls only anti-Valentine’s Day slumber party for themselves and fellow witches Diana and Cassie. But the night gets wilder than expected when Melissa offers Diana some mood altering “Devil’s Spirit,” and the first person Diana loosens up around is Lee, who crashes the party to help Faye achieve her own power. Meanwhile, Cassie is forced to turn to Adam and Jake after she becomes haunted by the spirits of some vengeful witches.

To see if love is easier or harder with magic, tune in to The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Secret Circle @ Clicker.

I had been on the fence with The Finder. I loved the Bones backdoor pilot, but the show hadn’t really done anything for me until last week’s episode. Last week, Isabel’s ballplayer boyfriend hired the gang after he was robbed. Overall, it was a fun episode. I loved Leo explaining to Willa that they trusted an honor jar more to watch the bar than they did her. And I enjoyed the guest stars of The Twins and how Leo and Walter were able to use them as patsies for their own actions. While I don’t think the show has completely captured the magic of that backdoor pilot, it is starting to win me over, and I’m looking forward to another new episode.

In tonight’s episode, “The Great Escape,” Walter helps an amateur magician look for his assistant, who vanished after a disappearing act, but the trail also leads to a counterfeit-money operation. Meanwhile, Isabel helps Leo keep an eye on Willa. Ever Carradine (Eureka) and Jonathan Slavin (Better Off Ted) guest star.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be checking out The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, The Office, Up All Night, and The Mentalist (and Archer whenever I get caught up).

The case of the week was ok on the last episode of The Mentalist. It’s always fun to see Jane trying to out maneuver everyone else as he solves the case in a way that only he can. But for me, there were two much more interesting storylines. One…Van Pelt now knows Rigsby’s girlfriend is having a baby, and she was being very supportive. I dunno…I’m not sure I buy that. Also, again…I HATE that storyline. I’m sorry, but they got us invested in Rigsby and Van Pelt having a relationship. Then Van Pelt got with creepy FBI guy last season, so that was sad for us shippers, but then he turned out to be a bad guy. Great! She’s free again! Take some time, and then you guys can realize you belong together. But no…then they had to have Rigsby in a relationship. Fine. I get that. But now he’s having a baby? To me, that totally squashes any hope of a reconciliation. He’ll look like a jackass if he breaks up with baby mama. Of course, she could always break up with him, but… Anyway, we also saw some focus on Agent Darcy and her persuit of Red John. Everything is out in the open now—that Jane knows RJ isn’t dead, etc. We also learned that Wainright may know more than we think. I have to wonder…is Darcy safe? Guess we’ll find out.

On tonight’s episode, “At First Blush,” while a jury deliberates the guilt or innocence of a defendant on trial for murder, Jane tries to prove she has been wrongfully accused before time runs out. Meanwhile, Summer may have gone too far when she helps Cho make a case against a suspect. Diane Farr (Numb3rs, which I miss!) and Samaire Armstrong (Dirty Sexy Money, The OC) guest star.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be glued to my TV for American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Finder, & Up All Night.

Every week, The Big Bang Theory delivers the laughs, and I can’t help but come back for more. Last week’s episode had Leonard finally standing up to Sheldon and dissolving the roommate agreement until they were no more than acquaintances nodding in the hallway at each other when they passed. Eventually, during a power outage (caused by Sheldon), Leonard comes to see some of Sheldon’s worth. After being promised his own Leonard’s Day (which is no more than a day to get a card in his honor), Leonard re-signed the agreement. I’m not sure, but it may have been Sheldon’s ability to turn urine into drinking water that sold Leonard—probably not, but I wanted to mention the urine. 😀

On tonight’s episode, “The Vacation Solution,” when Sheldon is forced to take his vacation, he goes to work with Amy in her neurobiology lab. Meanwhile, Bernadette wants Howard to sign a pre-nup.

To see Amy and Sheldon deal with working together, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching: Grey’s Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries, The Mentalist, Person of Interest, American Idol, and The Finder.
