Tonight is the 150th episode of Criminal Minds. Last week, poor Reid felt like he wasn’t living up to his full potential. The bad guy basically taunted him, but in the end, Reid bested him and they caught the guy—and his best friend from years ago, who was responsible for the death of a seven-year-old boy when they were fifteen. I felt really bad for Reid the whole episode. Not only was he feeling off about where he was in his life, but the gang had forgotten his thirtieth birthday—which is a big one to forget! They surprised him at the end of the episode, but really…too little too late, in my opinion.

On tonight’s episode, “Unknown Subject,” the BAU team searches for a serial rapist in Houston known as “The Piano Man,” who has resurfaced and is assaulting his previous victims. Also, Prentiss tries to come to terms with her trauma from last year and with rejoining the team. Guest stars include Jay Karnes (The Shield, Sons of Anarchy), Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers), and Penny Peyser (Crazy Like a Fox, Knots Landing).

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

The final season of One Tree Hill is underway, and it’s been pretty solid so far. I don’t know about anyone else, but I still don’t trust Dan completely. Do you? That said, Nathan has given him an open door into their lives now that he’s running around Europe scouting. I hope they can all work their stuff out, because I would love a happy ending for the show.

On tonight’s episode, “Love the Way You Lie,” Dan helps a struggling Haley at Karen’s Cafe. Meanwhile, Quinn discovers that Clay is hiding something from her. Chase tries to mend a broken heart. Brooke is let down by her dad, and Julian makes a life-changing mistake.

To watch our favorite characters face their life challenges while still looking hot, tune in to The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of One Tree Hill @ Clicker.

Last week on Royal Pains, we got to see Divya finally learn she was responsible for the wrong medication given to the patient in the mid-season finale. As I watched, I realized I was still angry and disappointed at Divya. She has been putting her pride before her patients and HankMed. She won’t ask for help to either pay back Raj’s family—or to take them to court and contest their wanting her to pay. Jill is kind of pissing me off, too. Why is she waffling? Who cares about some stupid job in Uraguay when she has Hank? lol We also got to see the golfer played by Tom Cavanaugh (who I ADORE!). Unfortunately, a test came back with iffy results, so Hank ordered another one, and from the preview for this week, it doesn’t look good. The best part was Evan finally manning up with the General and she got down on one knee and asked Evan to marry her! Adorable scene!

On tonight’s episode, when a mysterious illness overcomes the members of an up and coming rock band, Hank and Divya have to work together to find the cause, but Hank struggles with trusting Divya after her near fatal prescription error.

See it tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Royal Pains @ Clicker.

Tonight, FOX is airing a special preview of the pilot of Touch before it officially premieres in March. Kiefer Sutherland stars as Martin Bohm, a blue-collar New York widower with a troubled son, Jake, who doesn’t speak. Jake has an obsession with numbers, which appears to enable him to predict the future.

I really enjoyed tonight’s episode. It is a great mix of action and drama. At times, it felt like Kiefer was channeling his inner Jack Bauer, but the characters are different enough. The pilot looks great and has a feature-film feel to it, right down to the emotional score and big-name guest star, Danny Glover. The pilot seems very self-contained, so I still have no idea what the weekly show will be about, but I will definitely watch some more to find out.

On tonight’s long episode, “Martin Bohm is a widower and single father who is haunted by an inability to connect to his emotionally challenged 11-year-old son Jake. But when Martin discovers that Jake can predict events before they happen, everything changes. Martin meets social worker Clea Hopkins (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Undercovers) and Professor Arthur Teller (Glover), who may have the keys to help unlock Jake’s mind.

Check out the 67-minute pilot tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Touch @ Clicker.

I love Wednesdays, because I so enjoy watching the TV Land comedies. Last week’s Hot in Cleveland was hysterical, because Melanie started dating the kicker for the Cleveland Browns—and he was dumber than a sack of rocks. Also, Victoria was convinced that Elka was God. It was fantastic. lol Then on The Exes, Phil learned his ex-wife was getting remarried, which made him over-the-moon happy because he wasn’t going to have to pay alimony anymore. Unfortunately, when he was out celebrating with the guys, he saw her fiance, who turned out to be there at the bar, kissing all over some other hot woman. He did a good thing and told her, which means, of course, that he’s still paying her and broke. lol Meanwhile, Holly kept trying to figure out if her boss was interested in her.

On tonight’s episode of Hot in Cleveland, “Love is Blind,” Victoria’s daughter Emmy is back for a visit with some very surprising news – she’s engaged to Melanie’s son Will! Joy is dating a blind man who thinks she’s 26, and Elka is prank-calling a certain Yankee third baseman. Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer), Joe Jonas, and Randy Wayne guest star.

Then on tonight’s The Exes, “When Holly Broke Kevin,” Phil is nervous when Holly starts dating his top client; Haskell lures Stuart into the world of sports betting. Amar’e Stoudemire (pro basketball player for the New York Knicks) guest stars.

Check them out tonight on TV Land at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hot in Cleveland & The Exes @ Clicker.

Tonight is a turning point for CSI, because Catherine has been a vital part of the show since 2000, and tonight is her last appearance. We watched last episode as one of her oldest friends was killed, as was the FBI agent she had feelings for. If that wasn’t enough, we ended the episode with her being shot. I’m not sure what the plan is, but whatever it is, I’m sorry to see her go.

On tonight’s episode, “Willows in the Wind,” Catharine makes the painful decision to leave CSI.

Grab your tissues and tune in to watch Catherine say goodbye on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI @ Clicker.
