Last week on NY Ink, Megan and Jessica strutted their stuff at pole dancing and perfected their skills. Megan also had some risque photos exposed that she’d taken. Ami and Billy got into a fight after Billy tried tackling an elaborate tattoo. Tila Tequila dropped by for some ink to honor her parents.

Tonight, Ami heads off to South Beach for some quality daddy-daughter time and to kick back with the men of Love/Hate.

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

Things are really heating up on Person of Interest. Last week, Detective Carter really started learning what Reese and Finch do, by helping catch a man just before he killed someone. I think they need her in the know and involved to help round out the team. It’s nice having Fusco to do their bidding, but having a good cop on their side will be good. This week is sure to be interesting, because the previews make it seem like Carter comes between Reese and Finch. I’m sure that won’t last, but they are going to be fighting over how much Carter needs to know about machine. I love this show and can’t wait to see it each week.

On tonight’s episode, “Legacy,” when Carter finally comes face-to-face with Reese, he urges her to join forces to help with their latest POI, a scrappy young woman from the wrong side of the tracks who turned her life around and became a lawyer.

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

Last week’s Grey’s Anatomy was incredibly emotional, and it definitely lived up to the hype. The surgeons were working hard to separate a pair of young siamese twins. On another note, Meredith and Derek aren’t wasting a moment, enjoying the return of Zola, who walked for the first time last week. I was overjoyed with this development. It’s shaping up to be a great season.

On tonight’s episode,”Hope for the Hopeless,” Richard performs his 10,000th surgery – a liver transplant involving bickering sisters (Peri Gilpin and Nia Vardalos). Meanwhile, Adele Webber is found aimlessly wandering the streets; Derek and Lexie take on a supposedly inoperable neuroblastoma case.

To be there to celebrate Richard’s surgery, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomy @ Clicker.

A lot of comedies are shown on repeat in my country on a daily basis, and The Big Bang Theory is one of those. And every day, I enjoy watching an episode that I’ve already seen so many times before. Over the last few episodes, Amy and Sheldon have finally decided they are boyfriend and girlfriend, but Sheldon is having a hard time adjusting to the new situation.

Tonight on “The Recombination Hypothesis,” the 100th episode, everything might change when Leonard invites Penny to a romantic dinner.

Watch it at 8/7c on CBS. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

Last week was the series premiere of The Finder. I really quite enjoyed it—a lot more than I enjoyed the backdoor pilot/crossover episode with Bones last season. Was it perfect? No. The Willa story is a bit odd…she’s a teenage girl living and working with two grown men, in their custody after getting in trouble with the law and being taken away from her gypsy family. I’m interested to see if they explain her situation more. I love the addition of Isabel, the Deputy U.S. Marshal – someone who is actually with the law and a love interest for Walter. And of course, I loved Leo. He’s just a cool guy. I’m excited about tonight’s episode, because unlike some Bones fans, I love Sweets, who is guest starring tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Bullets,” a former prison warden enlists the help of Walter to find a bullet that could prove the innocence of a death row inmate just days before his execution. Meanwhile, FBI psychologist – and Jeffersonian team member – Dr. Lance Sweets evaluates Walter’s competency to consult on federal cases. In the process, Sweets begins to understand Walter’s intangible gift and motivation to find the unfindable. Also, Willa attends a beach party and gets herself into trouble. John Francis Daley (Bones) and Mitch Pileggi (The X Files) guest star.

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

The Mentalist never ceases to amuse me, which is a great trait to have in a crime show. Usually, procedural type shows have stale moments with facts, but somehow, this show manages to keep us interested every minute. Last week’s episode had Jane up to his usual antics, and we know the CBI wouldn’t be as exciting without him. Now who is Red John, and when will we get there already? 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “My Bloody Valentine,” Jane investigates the death of a mob boss’ son. Meanwhile, Van Pelt is haunted by memories of O’Laughlin’s shooting.

To see if Jane can outsmart the mob, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mentalist @ Clicker.

Last week, 30 Rock finally returned after quite a long hiatus due to Tina Fey’s pregnancy. The show has been up and down over the last few seasons, but last week was a strong episode. The first episode back was the regular mess that it always is. Kenneth thought the world was ending, Jenna was being a very hurtful judge on a children’s singing competition, and we found out Liz has a relationship (that Jack found out by spying on her).

Tonight’s episode is titled “Idiots are People Two,” in which Liz tries to keep the identity of her boyfriend hidden from Jack, TGS has some damage to fix because an offensive rant by Tracy leaked, and Jenna and Kenneth call on Kelsey Grammer to solve a problem.

It’s on at 8/7c on NBC. Learn where to find episodes online of 30 Rock @ Clicker.
