Indulge in some escapism after a long day on the grind. Put yourself at ease and let your fingers doing the walking on your remote.

Community fans are up in arms over the season being cut short. There is chatter that it is due to trying to make room for the show Whitney, but nothing has been confirmed. The uproar has fans on Twitter sporting fake mustaches and beards in their profile pictures to show their support. In the meantime, we will savor the episodes we’re given, like the last, where Dean Pelton tried to make a new commercial for the school, with Luis Guzman as guest star. The gems keep coming, and hopefully, so will new episodes, let the campaign continue!

Tonight, Jeff and Shirley bond over the game of foosball, and after breaking Abed’s limited edition “Dark Knight DVD,” Annie claims that someone broke into the apartment and stole it.

Watch an all new episode at 8/7c on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Community @ Clicker.

I don’t know if all Bones fans are loving this season as much as I am, but it’s true…I am absolutely loving it so far. I love the shift in the dynamic now that Booth and Brennan are truly a couple and having a baby. The cases are still everything they’ve always been, the rest of the team is just as dynamic (with the addition of the adorable little Michael Hodgins and new squintern Finn Abernathy, who I hope we’ll see more of soon!), but Booth and Brennan as a couple are too cute for words. The pregnancy is working out okay, and Bones is still able to be a major part of the show. Hopefully that won’t change, even through the last episode they filmed before Emily Deschanel had her baby! On the last new episode, Sweets earned his right to carry a gun—much to Daisy’s happiness and excitement—and earned Booth’s respect, while Bones figured out that while she does still have a lot to learn about becoming a mother, she is already learning to relax a bit. The scene with her ambushing Booth with the NERF gun was too cute. I’ve seen tonight’s episode already, and the case is the most gruesome yet! It’s a great episode, so enjoy! And bring tissues!

On tonight’s episode, “The Male in the Mail,” dismembered remains are discovered in several mailing boxes at a dead letter office, and the Jeffersonian team identifies the victim as an employee of a local Ship ‘n’ Print, where the staff recently split the winnings of a lottery prize. The team uncovers a complicated love triangle between two married employees and the victim, and while motive points to the husband (guest star Ben Savage, Boy Meets World), a critical clue leads them to solve the crime definitively. Meanwhile, Booth’s grandfather (guest star Ralph Waite) breaks some unexpected news, and Special Agent Genny Shaw (guest star Tina Majorino) learns the importance of teamwork.

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

There’s something amazing about a strong woman, and Prime Suspect delivers that weekly. Jane is not only a talented homicide detective, but also a caring daughter and loving girlfriend. I love how she can be tough and hold her own with the male detectives one minute, and then the next, she’s cuddled up with her boyfriend, being vulnerable. If you’re looking for a show that challenges your crime solving skills while pulling on your heart strings, this is the show for you.

On tonight’s episode, “Gone to Pieces,” Duffy attempts to give a hit-and-run case to Jane when he thinks it can’t be solved; the clues in a murder case lead Jane and Evrard to a porn king. Elsewhere, Sweeney gives Duffy advice.

To watch Jane solve the case with grits and heart, tune in to NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Prime Suspect @ Clicker.

Parks and Recreation continues to be a solid comedy that I can rely on for laughs every Thursday. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a new episode. Last time, Leslie tried to draw out the building of Indiana’s smallest park as a way for her and Ben to spend more time together. When that didn’t work out as expected, she finally told Ben that they should just go for it and pursue a public relationship, no matter what that means to her candidacy. Meanwhile, April and Ron convinced Andy to go to college, and after auditing a few classes, he finally settled on Women’s Studies. The April/Ron/Andy storylines are always my favorite; they make such a hilarious trio. I’m not really a shipper, so the whole Ben/Leslie will they/won’t they reminds me of the Paul/Ann/Andy thing that went on way too long in the first two seasons. Just bring on the general craziness of Pawnee, and I’m happy.

In tonight’s episode, “The Trial of Leslie Knope,” Leslie goes on trial and defends her actions.

See the new episode tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

Boy, sociopath Anson sure has Michael & Co. between a rock and a hard place on Burn Notice, doesn’t he? To keep Fi out of prison, Michael is determined to do whatever he has to do to keep Anson happy, all the while working behind the scenes with his friends to take the man down. So far, they aren’t having a lot of success, but I have hopes! There’s never been something they have been unable to get themselves out of, and I’m hoping this isn’t the first time! Last episode, we saw Jesse and Sam go undercover with an African warlord to help out a kidnapped scientist. Of course, things didn’t work out exactly like they’d planned—but they never do. Still, they came out on top, rescuing not only the scientist, but his daughter, as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Depth Perception,” after learning that Beatriz is on the run from a deadly Russian spy, Michael seeks Anson’s profiling skills in an attempt to find the assassin before he or she can strike. Fiona and Jesse perform a favor for Anson in the Cayman Islands.

Check it out tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Burn Notice @ Clicker.
