Ami James and his tattoo team are back! In the season opener of NY Ink, we saw the shop buzzing with business and Ami in the mood to celebrate. The entire shop went out to party, and Megan invited former shopmate Chris Torres, and that didn’t go over very well with Ami. However, after Ami heard how many calls Chris still gets at the shop, he realized that he was losing business. Trying to see if he could make a mutually beneficial proposal, Ami suggested that Chris come back to the shop, only to have Chris laugh in his face. James Durbin stopped in to snag a tattoo, and Billy won a bet after estimating how long a tattoo Megan was commissioned to do would take!

On tonight’s episode, “Paying Dues,” Ami allows Billy to take on an elaborate tattoo, and very risque photos of Megan cause quite the ruckus. Tila Tequila also stops in to Ami’s shop in order to honor her parents.

Enjoy an all new NY Ink tonight at 9/8c on TLC! Learn where to find episodes online of NY Ink @ Clicker.

Bones is back, baby! I’ve missed the new episodes, so I’m super excited about tonight’s ep, even though it’s the last new one until like the end of March. But still… Tonight, Booth and Brennan are still together, Hodgins & Angela are still adorable parents, and we meet the new Big Bad. He’s supposedly VERY scary and even smarter than Brennan—or even all of them put together, it sounded like in one interview I read. That’s a scary thing to think about, huh? Another reason to be excited about tonight’s episode is Wendell is tonight’s intern. I LOVE Wendell. 😀

On tonight’s episode, “The Crack in the Code,” a cryptic message penned in human blood is discovered at a national monument. As the Jeffersonian team embarks on a scavenger hunt to solve the case, they realize their tech-savvy suspect (guest star Andrew Leeds, Nip/Tuck) remains one step ahead of them. Meanwhile, Booth and Brennan search for the perfect home for their new family.

Don’t miss it tonight on FOX at a special time of 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

When the idea of a Bones spin-off came about, I was overjoyed. When we were introduced to The Finder on an episode of Bones, the love was instantaneous. Now the time has arrived for The Finder to stand on it’s own, and let me tell you…it’s awesome. I have seen this episode; it’s full of heart, humour, and mysteries that are tantalizing. Geoff Stults is adorable and gives me yet another reason to tune in to FOX on Thursdays.

The Finder is about a man who can find anything. Lost your wife, your dog, maybe even your sanity, and Walter (Stults) can find it. (Okay, maybe not your sanity…). He’s joined by his legal advisor and friend, Leo (Michael Clarke Duncan) and his on again/off again lover, US Marshal Isabel Zambada (Mercedes Masohn). There’s also the difficult teenager Willa (Maddie Hasson), who is working during her probation at the ‘Ends of the Earth’ bar where Walter and Leo live and work as well. Overall, when people can’t find something, they are going to come to Walter and he’s going to find it. There’s no promises that you’re always going to like what he finds along the way, but he will find what he was hired to find.

On tonight’s premiere, “An Orphan Walks into a Bar,” a teen asks Walter Sherman to locate his father, who went missing after his plane vanished in the Florida wilderness.

Tonight is the sixth season premiere of 30 Rock! During my recent drive to New York City, I listened to Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” audiobook, in which she describes how she originally got involved with this series and some of the behind the scenes madness. I was actually thrilled to hear her say how bad the pilot for this show was. In fact, I remember almost quitting this show in favor of the similarly-themed Studio 60. However, I’m glad I stuck with it, as it has turned out to be a hilarious, fun show. Last season was a little weak, so I really hope it comes back in full swing this year. I want to see Tina Fey prove why she deserves that Golden Globe nomination!

In tonight’s episode, “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching,” the gang returns to work after the holiday break. As Liz adopts a new mindset, Jenna gains newfound fame as a hateful celebrity judge. Meanwhile, Kenneth takes a day off and anticipates the Rapture.

See it tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of 30 Rock @ Clicker.

I’m also really excited about tonight’s return of Person of Interest. On the last episode before Christmas, Detective Carter set Reese up with the men that had come to warn her about him. In the process, they shot him and damn near killed him. Fortunately, Finch got there in time to get him into the car—with Carter’s help. It was great to see her helping him, which is the least she could do after he saved her life!

On tonight’s episode, “Super,” Reese works the computer while Finch does the legwork with their latest POI, a building super who keeps too close an eye on his tenants. Meanwhile, Detective Carter may finally get her long-awaited glimpse into a case.

This season of Grey’s Anatomy has been very emotionally charged. Last week’s episode wrapped up a lot of sad stories that were brought up in the fall finale. Alex and Meredith managed to survive the car crash, and the baby survived. The family that was also involved in the crash had 3 casualties and left a family destroyed. Teddy finally learned of Henry’s death, and it was so heart-wrenching. Christina and Owen may never be the same again because of the whole situation. On the bright side, the episode ended with Meredith and Derek FINALLY getting Zola back! (Sorry, Kyle, I did care if they got their baby back. 🙂 ) Whew, I’m tired just reliving that episode.

On tonight’s episode, “This Magic Moment,” the doctors split into teams for a risky surgery involving conjoined twins. Meanwhile, Teddy questions Cristina about Henry’s surgery; Bailey enlists Meredith to be a buffer between her and Ben, who’s pressuring her to ratchet up their relationship.

To see if they can separate the conjoined twins successfully, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomay @ Clicker.

After more than a month away, The Big Bang Theory returns tonight. With the Golden Globes airing this Sunday, I am reminded of the travesty that Jim Parsons was not nominated for his role as Sheldon—he is my favorite part of the show. And now with Sheldon and Amy officially being a couple, I expect to see comedy platinum! The interactions between those two always make me laugh—they were made for each other. The addition of Bernadette was also a wonderful change for the show—she has made Howard much more likeable, and I love when she goes into Mrs. Wolowitz mode.

In tonight’s episode, “The Shiny Trinket Maneuver,” Sheldon hurts Amy’s feelings, and Penny gives him advice on how to be a better boyfriend; Howard comes to terms with the fact that Bernadette isn’t fond of children.

Another show I’m excited to see back tonight is The Mentalist. Last episode was so sad, because Jane was nearly killed—drowned—which resulted in a loss of his memory. He remembered being a con artist/fake psychic, but not about working with the CBI, not about Red John, or even his wife and daughter. At the end, Lisbon took him to his family’s home, which brought everything back to him. I think it was a great way for viewers to remember just how far he’s come since the beginning of the show.

On tonight’s episode, “Always Bet on Red,” Jane and the CBI must narrow down the long list of suspects after a high-end divorce attorney with many enemies is killed on his speed boat. Meanwhile, Jane is questioned about whether Red John was responsible for Panzer’s murder. Catherine Dent (The Shield) returns as FBI Agent Susan Darcy, who questions Jane about Panzer’s death, & Samaire Armstrong (Dirty Sexy Money) returns as Summer, Cho’s informant.

See tonight’s episode on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mentalist @ Clicker.
