Last week on NY Ink, Jessica made waves in the shop when she showed off some tattoos that she’d been doing on the side. Meanwhile, Tim dragged Ami out of the shop for some surf, sand, and sun bonding time!

Tonight, on “Now or Never,” Ami faces a truly tough dilemma concerning Jessica when he finds out that she’s been working out of her house. Megan moves into her new place, but it seems like her boyfriend could change that situation.

Draw your own conclusions at 9/8c on TLC! Learn where to find episodes online of NY Ink @ Clicker.

Other shows that I’ll be tuning in to tonight include 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, and Project Runway Allstars!

There aren’t many shows that can make big changes to the cast midway through the third season and find itself that much stronger, when it was already a strong show to begin with. The Big Bang Theory did just that toward the end of 2010, when they made Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) series regulars. They are the perfect pairing alongside Kaley Cuoco’s Penny and help make the guys seem human and not just geeky scientists that most people can’t relate to. This show keeps getting better and better, and when I am feeling blah about TV and not like I really want to watch anything, I can always turn on a new episode or a rerun and be perfectly happy.

Last week’s episode, where Sheldon (honestly, one of the funniest characters on TV I’ve ever seen) wanted Professor Rothman’s office, was hysterical, as the show always is. Sure, Sheldon “won” the office after competing in a basketball game (LOL) with Kripke, but then absolutely nothing went right – the AC was on full blast, there was a hole in his wall, a windchime outside his window, and a mockingbird that dared sing off key alongside it. Plus, you had Sheldon and Kripke follow President Siebert into the bathroom and Professor Rothman showing up naked several times. On the girls’ side, Amy bought a HUGE … CREEPY looking painting of herself and Penny. The very end, when Amy told her that originally, they were nude, and then went on to talk about sponges and soapy water… Oh man… Stitches in my side from laughing so hard.

On tonight’s episode, “The Werewolf Transformation,” Sheldon’s life is turned upside-down after his barber gets sick. Meanwhile, astronaut training causes Wolowitz to rethink his decision to go into space.

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

Grey’s Anatomy has been getting better at balancing the happy with the sad – with a dash of crazy added in. Last week, the crazy was a guy’s arm in a meat grinder. Eww. I won’t lie… The idea of that made me sick to my stomach. Ick. In the end, it was Meredith’s help that saved the case, earning her Callie’s help with studying. Meanwhile, Alex saved his intern’s life after she had a heart attack while helping him study – he didn’t know she was 24 weeks pregnant. Mom and baby made it, and he learned that Arizona was a lot like him, because you need to be answer-focused to be good enough to eventually save these children’s lives. Overall, it was a fierce episode.

On tonight’s episode, “If Only You Were Lonely,” as Adele’s condition continues to deteriorate, Richard considers altering their living situation. An explosion at a local coffee shop results in a busy day in the ER for the doctors. Callie takes Meredith under her wing by helping her study for her boards; Lexie joins Arizona and Alex in peds, as they continue to care for intern Morgan’s premature son. When Jackson snaps at a patient, Mark encourages him to find ways to relieve his stress. Meanwhile, Cristina lets her suspicions get the best of her.

To see all the delicious hospital drama, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomy @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The Secret Circle, The Big Bang Theory, The Finder, American Idol, Person of Interest, and The Mentalist.

This season of The Office has had some pretty hilarious episodes! Currently, half the office is on a month-long trip to Tallahassee to help develop Sabre’s flagship store. Last week, Dwight thought Jim had poisoned him, but quickly realized that he needed an emergency appendectomy. However, just hours after his major surgery, Dwight returned to the conference room for fear that someone else might get the VP promotion over him. Meanwhile, back in Scranton, Andy reluctantly filled in at the front desk, but soon discovered how much he loved that job.

Andy is the perfect new boss, and him acting as the receptionist was hilarious! Also, it was great to see Catherine Tate back as Nellie Bertram—after being rejected for the open manager position, she is now a Sabre special-projects big-wig. If I have one complaint about this season, it’s that Dwight has pretty much turned into a two-dimensional Wile E. Coyote-style cartoon character.

In tonight’s episode, “After Hours,” a power play unfolds in Tallahassee when Dwight and Todd Packer compete to become Nellie’s vice president. Meanwhile, Jim receives an unwanted visitor, and Andy forces the Scranton staffers to work late.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be adding the following to my ever-growing TV backlog: The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Up All Night, The Finder, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and Archer.

I was sad that we didn’t get a new episode of The Finder last week. The episode the week before was good…the magician with the magically disappearing assistant…who turned out to be part of a counterfitting ring of thieves. I felt really bad for the pitiful (and awful lol) magician, although Walter made the guy feel better at the end. The other interesting part to that episode was Willa… She was able to break into Wlater’s vault, and then we learned that her “cousin” isn’t really her cousin, but the guy she was betrothed to. Thanks to Isabel, Walter was able to give Timo earrings worth enough money to buy his way out of the betrothel, freeing him up to be with the woman he loves. It was a great scene, but…excuse me if I’m wary over how truthful Willa is. I guess we’ll see! I’m so excited about tonight’s episode, because T.J. Thyne is guest starring as Jack Hodgins, his character on Bones. If you remember (of if you are insane and don’t watch Bones), Hodgins is a conspiracy theorist buff. That is a huge tie in to this episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Little Green Men,” Dr. Jack Hodgins from the Jeffersonian team seeks Walter’s help to find evidence that could expose extraterrestrial activity. Meanwhile, Timo (guest star Toby Hemingway) and Willa struggle with their arranged marriage proclaimed by the head of their gypsy family. (Now…they struggled last week…so does that mean they are struggling again this week? Or is my source kind of screwed up? I guess we’ll find out!)

See all the fun tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Finder @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching American Idol, Person of Interest, Up All Night, & The Mentalist.
