Let’s see what there is to amuse you.

It has been far too long since a new episode of Hart of Dixie, and tonight, we finally get one. When we left Bluebell, George’s dad had had a heart attack and needed surgery. Because of Zoe’s love for George, she gives in and calls her dad for a favor, even though they aren’t talking. Meanwhile, Wade grapples with learning his worth. I’m so stressed out about what Zoe is going to do with her love life! I want her with Wade, but it seems like she and George have an incredible bond.

On tonight’s new episode, “Heart to Hart,” Zoe has conflicted feelings about seeing her estranged father, world-renowned surgeon Ethan Hart, who has agreed to travel to Bluebell to perform surgery on George’s father (guest star Eric Pierpoint) as a favor to Zoe. Fearful of losing George, Lemon decides she must befriend Zoe in order to prevent her from telling George about Lemon’s affair with Lavon. Meanwhile, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Rammer Jammer, the owner (guest star John Marshall Jones) hosts a signature cocktail contest between Wade and Shelley (guest star Deborah S. Craig).

Tune in to The CW at 9/8c to see what’s happening with our favorite Bluebell residents. Learn where to find episodes online of Hart of Dixie @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Voice, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0, Bones, and Smash.

Last week was the much anticipated mid-season premiere of Bones, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled. I enjoyed the case (especially the beginning with the little girl finding the eyeball & stuff), and watching Booth hover protectively over Bones, who insisted she was fine, only to have to pull off at a bed and breakfast (with the word Inn in the name…) and have to deliver their baby girl themselves in a stable out back? So totally classic Bones. I loved the whole birth scene, except for the sound effects… It was kind of weird going from having the screaming and stuff to like mute. We could see them screaming and yelling and stuff, but there was no sound. Until there was. I dunno. Maybe that was just me. lol It was a bit distracting. Another thing that was a bit weird was when Booth & Bones & baby Christine got home, and Booth was still wearing the blood-covered shirt. Maybe I’m wrong, but I wouldn’t think they would just go home after, would they? I’m assuming they would go to the hospital to get Bones & Christine checked out (believe me, I know from experience that childbirth doesn’t end the moment the baby pops out. lol). Even if they were deemed fine and didn’t need to stay overnight, if I were Booth, I’d have called and asked someone to bring me a clean shirt from home or from a spare he keeps at the office. *shrug* Regardless, it was a fantastic episode, and when they announced that the baby’s middle name was Angela, I bawled. lol

On tonight’s episode, “The Bump in the Road,” with the help of Special Agent Genny Shaw (guest star Tina Majorino), the Jeffersonian team identifies the remains of a discount shopper and “extreme couponer” who was dragged along the road by an 18-wheeler. Meanwhile, Brennan is adjusting to her first day back at work after giving birth, and Cam disapproves of her daughter’s romance with intern Finn Abernathy.

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

Tonight, season 2 of the US version of Being Human comes to a close. Last week, Julia discovered Josh’s secret, but in her shock, she backed into traffic and was killed by an oncoming vehicle. Meanwhile, Henry assisted Aidan with his plan to help Suren escape from Mother, but Suren quickly returned to the comforts of her princess role. And Sally tried to convince Zoe not to give up on her gift after she discovered that ghosts she shredded were not truly gone.

Tonight’s season finale should be interesting… Will Josh kill Ray so that he can be free of his curse, and will that even work?! And if it does work, will Nora try to kill Josh to cure herself? Also, why is Aidan so set on helping Suren, who seems to give up so easily when the going gets tough? This has been a great season. I’m so glad this series has managed to find a voice of its own, separate from its UK roots.

In tonight’s episode, “It’s My Party and I’ll Die if I Want To,” Sally’s mother resurfaces, Josh opts to kill Ray, and Aidan chooses to kill Mother.

Check out tonight’s season finale on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Being Human @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Smash, Bones, House, Hart of Dixie, and Inside the Actors Studio.

Smash is continuing to pack Monday nights full of drama, and fans can’t get enough! Last week, Julie and Tom struggled to find a title for their reinvigorated Marilyn Musical and settled on Bombshell. Julia and Frank were torn apart by the revelation of Julia’s cheating ways. Ivy and Karen competed over a major commercial for an orange juice company, with Karen coming out on top. Ivy mixed medications and fell crashing down during a performance, and then she and Karen hit the streets and bonded. But don’t mistake an act of kindness for true friendship. These two are far from BFFs still.

On tonight’s episode, “Understudy,” Uma Thurman shakes things up! When the show’s new star gets stuck in Cuba, Derek puts Karen in as understudy. Meanwhile, Tom and Julia celebrate their anniversary.

Turn the lights up at 10/9c on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Smash @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am watching the live performances of Team Adam and Team Cee Lo on The Voice!

It’s been a few weeks since the last new episode of Hawaii Five-0. When we last saw them, the team was shocked when Steve’s sister was arrested, accused of trying to smuggle $20 million worth of conflict diamonds. The team worked with (or so they thought. lol) August March, a diamond smuggler who had been in prison until recently. It was very cool, because Ed Asner reprised his role as March, who he played in an episode of the original series in 1975. I really loved how the writers worked that in. I was really excited when I heard about this week’s episode… One of my favorite characters on Hawaii Five-0 is Max, the coroner. Masi Oka (who played a very loveable character on Heroes, too) is fantastic, and his character on here, Dr. Max Bergman, is great. So funny. Tonight’s episode is VERY Max-heavy. So yay for me!

On tonight’s episode, “Ha’alele (Abandoned),” a murder case hits close to home for Max when he is convinced that The Trashman, a serial killer with ties to his past, is on the loose. In order to convince Five-0 of his suspicions, Max reveals shocking information about his childhood.

See it tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, & Pawn Star$.
