Last week, we saw the romance of Ben and Leslie heat up on Parks and Recreation. After Leslie’s hearing about whether or not she’d get to keep her job after her romance with Ben was revealed, things took an interesting turn. Both declared their love for one another in a grand gesture that was truly fitting to this adorkable couple. Now that Leslie’s job is no longer in jeopardy and Ben has stepped down, fans are excited to see this couple flourish in a new dynamic. It was amazing to see the entire Parks Department really band together for Leslie and work on her behalf to stay as their fearless leader. It’s moments like these when fans just smile at the bonds the characters share at the end of the day.

Tonight, Leslie forms a citizens action group in order to get some work done. Also, everyone in the office tries to plan a special Christmas gift for Leslie.

It’s been three weeks since the last new episode of Person of Interest, and I’ve been missing it! I’ve really loved this show since the very first episode. Reese is such a good guy—even though he may not always think he is, and Detective Carter doesn’t quite know what to make of him—and Finch is just really amazingly smart and interesting to watch. Speaking of Detective Carter… She’s been chasing after the man in the suit for a while now. I don’t think she believes he is a bad guy, necessarily, but she knows he’s not quite on the up and up. I like the cat and mouse game, but at some point, I would love to see them meet and see Reese and Finch draw her in to their gig, having her work with them. Having the other detective at his beck and call is nice and fun, but still… This week’s episode should be quite interesting, as it will bring Carter that much closer to our guys.

On tonight’s episode, “Get Carter,” Reese and Finch’s game of cat and mouse with Detective Carter becomes infinitely more complicated when The Machine declares that she is their newest PO. I swear, I did not read the description before I wrote my sentence up there about cat & mouse!

See it tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Person of Interest @ Clicker.

This season of Bones has been fabulous so far, in my opinion. I love the dynamic between Booth and Brennan. Although she is pregnant and we are FINALLY getting to see them together as a couple, I don’t feel it’s changed that much. One of my other favorite parts of this season was watching Sweets qualify for carrying a gun. Was it just me, or did he look incredibly hot with a gun? 😀 Last week’s episode, we watched Booth struggle through acceptance of his father’s death in his own way. How great was it to watch Brennan be Booth’s rock? She was amazingly emotionally supportive for a woman that rarely shows emotion herself.

On tonight’s episode, “The Twist in the Twister,” the team discovers the death of a storm chaser may not have been caused by the tornado he was following. Meanwhile, Angela and Hodgins have reservations about letting Angela’s father, ZZ top guitarist Billy F. Gibbons, babysit Michael.

To watch the relationship between Brennan and Booth grow while solving crimes, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

We’re a week away from the season finale of Burn Notice, so time is running out for Michael & the gang to take down Anson before he takes them all down one by one. He’s got Fiona by the short hairs, he’s destroyed Maddy by setting her up with a man to spy on Michael via his relationship with her and then killing him while they watched his house explode, and last week, we found out he’s now got Sam under investigation for suspicion of working with the Russians. They have GOT to get this guy! He’s too smart and conniving and just plain evil to be left alive at the end of this season, right?!

On tonight’s episode, “Acceptable Loss,” Michael needs Pearce’s help to get in touch with a prisoner from his past who has information on Anson. Jesse tries to help his old friend expose his corrupt boss, who uses diplomatic immunity to get away with dealing diamonds.

Don’t miss it tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Burn Notice @ Clicker.

Community can be hit or miss, but last week, it was definitely on. Annie broke Abed’s special-edition Batman DVD, but was too afraid to tell him the truth. This led to a fake robbery cover-up and an elaborate investigation for the thief. Meanwhile, Shirley revealed her dark past and taught Jeff how to beat a gang of Foosball Deutsche-bags. Annie and Troy were hilarious in this episode, especially when their lines consisted solely of looks and sounds. Annie’s attempt to recreate a Christian Bale DVD commentary track was so funny. This show can be really great when they don’t try to be so clever that it goes over the heads of the audience. I think last week’s episode also benefited from the fact that they concentrated on just two stories and five characters. Tonight is another holiday episode, and I’m looking forward to seeing what they do after last year’s claymation special.

In tonight’s episode, “Regional Holiday Music,” Greendale’s choir director (Taran Killam) recruits the study group to fill in for the sidelined glee club. Though initially skeptical, the gang soon get in the spirit for the school’s Christmas pageant.

It’s been a bit since a new episode of The Big Bang Theory, and my Thursday just hasn’t been the same. There is just something fantastic about a comedy that actually uses intelligent material as their base for laughs. Don’t get me wrong, I like a lot of other comedies, but every time I watch Big Bang, not only do I spend almost the whole time giggling at Sheldon and his quirky behaviour, but I love watching the dynamics between the group of nerdy boys. Whether they are arguing over the likelihood of an alternate universe or if they should have Thai food, it’s funny. Let’s be honest… We all have our moments of crying because of people’s stupidity. That’s why we can relate to Sheldon. 🙂 Last episode, we watched Sheldon actually ask Amy to be his girlfriend, after he found himself unhappy when she was out with another guy.

On tonight’s episode, “The Speckerman Recurrence,” Leonard confronts his fears when he’s contacted by a bully who tormented him in high school.

Tune in to CBS at 8/7c see if a bully can actually change. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

I’m so excited, because it’s been a few weeks since we got a new episode of Grimm, and this week, we get TWO! There is a new episode tomorrow, on its normal night & time, but tonight, we get a new episode, too, which means double the fun. Last episode, Monroe had to go undercover at a bar to keep an eye on a suspect, and one of the most hysterical things I’ve seen on this show was when he came running out to Nick and said he was done, he quit, because he almost found himself under the man’s spell and bought him a drink. It was such a great scene. Silas Weir Mitchell absolutely steals every scene he’s in as Eddie Monroe.

On tonight’s episode, “Danse Macabre,” Nick and Hank’s investigation of a dead high school teacher leads them to the school’s outcast, Roddy. Nick realizes that there’s more to Roddy than meets the eye, and enlists Monroe’s help to get through to the troubled teenager before he exacts revenge on the students who wronged him. Meanwhile, Nick learns that his presence is beginning to affect the creature world.

Check it out tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grimm @ Clicker.
