Last week on Community, Britta tried to help Jeff with his severely extreme narcissism while the group worked as celebrity impersonators in order to help Abed pay down a debt. While letting Abed enjoy his imaginary world, Troy felt a little lost and lonely, but he didn’t want to hinder Abed’s creativity and escapism.

On tonight’s episode, “Digital Exploration of Interior Design,” Shirley, Britta, and Pierce plot against the new sub shop in the cafeteria. Fans may remember a couple of episodes ago when Shirley and Pierce pitched the sub shop idea to the Dean, only to have it stolen away from them. Vice Dean Laybourne (guest star John Goodman) continues his daunting efforts to recruit Troy to the Air Conditioning repair Annex. Also, Troy and Abed build competing blanket forts.

The fun begins at 8/7c, so don’t miss a moment of it on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Community @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching 30 Rock and Awake.

So far, ABC’s Missing has not disappointed. I had high expectations, and it’s living up to every one of them, which makes me so freakin happy. Ashley Judd is phenomenal as a mother searching for her kidnapped son. There’s a lot more to her back story than she acts like, and so far, we’ve been finding out a little bit more over each episode. I think I like the Deputy Chief of the Western European station for the CIA, Agent Dax Miller, played by Cliff Curtis. I think he’s totally on Becca’s side and is doing his best so far to balance that with the demands of his job. I hope that continues, because I’ll really hate it if he suddenly turns into a jackass. Same goes for Interpol agent, Giancarlo Rossi. I hope he really is truly on Becca’s side. I can’t decide which of them I like more, but I’d love to see sparks with either one of them. We’ve seen some of it already, but I want more. (I’m a shipper at heart. 😉 )

The scene at the end of last week’s episode, when Becca was racing to the airfield to get to the plane before her son could be spirited away was absolutely heartwrenching. When she fell to her knees after the plane took off, and after they finally set eyes on one another, it was… Damn, it was so rough.

On tonight’s episode, “Ice Queen,” with Becca still on the hunt to find Michael, her best friend, Mary (guest star Aunjanue Ellis, The Help), complicates matters with her surprise arrival in Europe. Meanwhile, Michael struggles to uncover answers behind his kidnapping.

Check it out tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Missing @ Clicker.

It’s been a few weeks since a new episode of The Big Bang Theory, and the withdrawal is starting to get to me. I need my fill of amusing nerds to get me through until the weekend! There’s something magical about this comedy, because no matter what the centre story is, I’m always laughing. Since the addition of Amy, I find myself laughing in shock at the lengths she’ll go to to be Penny’s best friend. There’s also the amazement at Sheldon having a girlfriend; even if he is a terrible boyfriend, he’s still tackling the relationship drama. The one thing I hope we get to see soon is poor Raj getting a love interest – hasn’t he suffered in silence long enough?

On tonight’s episode, “The Transporter Malfunction,” Penny buys Leonard and Sheldon Star Trek collectibles as a thank you, leading Sheldon to be haunted by Mr. Spock. Meanwhile, Raj decides he has met the “Future Mrs. Koothrappali” after his parents set him up on a date.

To see if Raj can actually make sound come out of his mouth when in the presence of a girl, 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 and DVRing Missing, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, and American Idol.

Last week’s Touch gave us another story of intersecting lives that was kicked off by a robbery at a pawn shop. This brought together the lives of the thief, a flight attendant, an aspiring young magician in Russia, his Mobster father, and an Indian man who traveled to New York to spread his father’s ashes. While I still have no idea what the overall goal of the series is, I’ve really enjoyed the show. It’s great watching each week to discover how the seemingly unrelated events all come together in the end. Each episode has been like a mini-movie. I suspect over the course of the season, we will learn more about the son and his special abilities to use numbers to predict the future or discover these connections between people and events. It will be interesting to see where they go with the series and if they can keep this feature film feeling going.

In tonight’s episode, “Safety in Numbers,” Martin discovers that a homeless man’s obsession with numbers is similar to Jake’s, and he undertakes a series of tasks that involve African boys in a dance competition and a woman at a music festival. Meanwhile, Teller visits Jake’s board-and-care facility, and Clea goes on an emotional roller coaster.

Catch it tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Touch @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, Missing, Community, 30 Rock, Up All Night, Awake, and Sweet Genius.

I know not everyone is a fan, but I’m happy because tonight is the spring premiere of Rules of Engagement. I find this show cute and amusing, and I really enjoy it. It’s been 3 1/2 months since the last new episode. If you don’t remember, Audrey and Jeff have a friend of his from his softball team, a lesbian (played by the adorable Sara Rue), acting as their surrogate. Adam and Jen are still engaged (he is one of the most idiotic characters on TV, but I can’t help but love him. lol), and Russell and Timmy are still working together and annoying the hell out of each other.

On tonight’s episode, “Scavenger Hunt,” in order to convince Audrey he is making an effort in their relationship, Jeff sends her on a romantic scavenger hunt, with mixed results. Meanwhile, Adam leads Russell to believe that Jen has a sex tape.

See it tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rules of Engagement @ Clicker.

I’m also going to be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, Touch, Up All Night, Awake, & The Mentalist.
