What can I say about Covert Affairs that I haven’t said before? I love the characters? Nope, said that. Love the storylines? Hmm, nope, said that. It’s one of my favorites? Many times. That’s ok… I can repeat all those things! 😉 That’s why it’s my top pick for tonight! I really do love it and look forward to it every week, and I hope you give it a chance, if you haven’t already.

On tonight’s episode, during an exchange in Argentina, Annie and another spy become an assassin’s newest targets. The two secret agents are forced to team up to evade the authorities and attempt to discover the identity of the person hunting them.

See how Annie reacts to this newest attempt on her life tonight on USA at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Covert Affairs @ Clicker.

It’s hard to believe that it’s the final week for The Voice already. I have really enjoyed this series, at times even more than American Idol, because the show moves faster, and frankly, the level of talent has been astounding. The four finalists are Dia Frampton (Team Blake), Javier Colon (Team Adam), Beverly McClellan (Team Christina) and Vicci Martinez (Team Cee Lo), and I don’t envy America’s choice. These four artists are some of the most talented musicians I’ve seen in a long time, and because they are all such different styles, it’s going to be a tough competition. If I had to pick one, I’d have to go with Javier, but I’d be happy if Dia won, too.

On tonight’s episode, the final four are going to lay all of their heart, soul, and talent on the stage to try and bring the win home to them. Also, we’re going to see all four team leaders (Blake, Adam, Christina, and Cee Lo), sing You Can’t Always Get What You Want by The Rolling Stones.

Tune in to NBC at 9/8c, and then tomorrow night, as well, for the results. Learn where to find episodes online of The Voice @ Clicker.

“Sleep tight, while you still can bitches!” – A These taunting words filled our heads at the end of season one of Pretty Little Liars, and fans waited in shock and with baited breath for the second season to start back up again. Now that the second season is here, the twists, turns, and drama continue to escalate, and no one is safe!

Tonight, as Aria, Hanna, Emily, and Spencer try to keep their distances from one another, each girl looks to find distractions to help fill the void that is their parents’ request that they have separate time from one another. Aria decides to take a pottery class at Hollis College, as it not only qualifies as separate time, it also gives her a good excuse to visit with Ezra, who is a new college professor there. Both make for great benefits for Aria–that is, until she finds out that Jenna is also taking the class. Emily stays focuses on her swimming career and searching for ways that could help her stay in Rosewood. When she doesn’t get the solid commitment from Danby University that she was hoping for, she comes up with a way to fudge things in order to convince her mother to stay. Emily is known for being straight-laced. Will she go with her plan? When Hanna feels like she is the only one without something to keep her occupied as a hobby, she turns to Lucas (Brendan Robinson) to see if she can join the yearbook staff. With Lucas still hurting from his last romantic disaster with Hanna, her new hobby just might lead to her making amends. Meanwhile, Spencer’s suspicions spike about what’s going on over at the DiLaurentis house now that Jason has moved back in. Also, with Melissa sneaking around and getting mysterious text messages, Spencer wonders just what it is her sister has to do with what’s going on next door.

Watch an all new episode at 8/7c on ABC Family! Learn where to find episodes online of Pretty Little Liars @ Clicker.

One show that I am thoroughly enjoying this season is Memphis Beat. I make it a point to watch the night it airs, even though I can’t watch it live. There are only a handful of shows that are must-see on the night they air for me, so that should tell you a lot. Jason Lee, DJ Qualls (who I have a conference call with on Wednesday!), and the rest of the cast are fantastic. This role is so different from Lee’s last role, but he’s absolutely brilliant as the serious, musical Detective Dwight Hendricks.

On tonight’s episode, Dwight is approached by a father who is searching for his missing daughter, but his lack of hope worsens when they discover that it is likely that she was a part of a violent act. A missing woman’s abusive husband becomes the prime suspect.

Check it out tonight on TNT at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Memphis Beat @ Clicker.

I like the direction they have taken with this season of White Collar. We still get the weekly formula of Neal/Mozzie helping Peter with his case of the week. However, this season, we also get a glimpse into what the cat and mouse game between Peter and Neal must have been like in the past, as Peter investigates his suspicions of Neal’s involvement in the stolen paintings.

In tonight’s episode, “Dentist of Detroit,” Mozzie needs Peter’s and Neal’s help with a scam to take down a mobster from Detroit. Prom the previews, it looks like this should be another fun episode, giving us flashbacks to a 12-year-old Mozzie.
