The Olympics are over, and while I really enjoyed cheering my country on, I am very ready for the regular schedule to resume. This week is bringing us a bunch of new episodes, a few season premieres, and even a few series premieres. I know… I’m super excited, too! Let’s see what’s on tonight that we’re recommending.
The Voice comes back for another season starting tonight, and I’m really looking forward to it. Blake and Adam are returning for this season, but Cee Lo and Christina are not. Instead, Usher and Shakira will be in their places. We’ve found out that Cee Lo will not be returning at all, but I’m be okay with that, as long as it’s always Usher in his place, because that boy is so yummy to look at and he is a great coach. This season, I’m hoping we see some more fabulous singers and lots of fun bickering between the judges, because that’s what makes this talent show my favorite.
On tonight’s episode, “Blind Auditions Part 1,” the celebrity coaches begin selecting vocalists in blind auditions.
To see how the talent stacks up this season, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching The Following, Almost Human, Star-Crossed, Mom, Intelligence, Teen Wolf, 2 Broke Girls, The Blacklist, Bitten, Lost Girl, Being Human, and Dallas.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

I am really loving Intelligence. Last week’s episode dealt with nanites (microscopic robots) and murder. It was gruesome, and I figured out who the killer was when the secretary/assistant opened the box instead of the scientist. I did have the motive wrong. I thought she was the target, and he’d killed the other people first to draw attention away from her. Instead, he was trying to eliminate the competition, and he killed his secretary to make it seem like his life had been threatened, too. The team came close to losing Cassidy, but together, they were able to save him even after his heart stopped. I did love the powdered sugar bit at the end, when Cassidy got the guy to give up the info they needed. On a different note, did anyone else see the chemistry between Gabriel & Riley at the end of last week? Whew! LOL
On tonight’s episode, “Delta Force,” while Gabriel and Riley are in Bolivia protecting a presidential candidate from an assassination, Gabriel is stunned to learn his best friend from Delta Force is the suspect.
Find out if the best friend really was the one who was going to do it tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
Last week on Being Human, Josh woke up next to another woman after a night of wolfing out and then tried to hide this from his wife. While in the past, he claimed to have more control over his wolf, that’s obviously not the case—but Nora still blamed him and was upset when she found out. Meanwhile, Aidan had been without blood for a long time and finally gave into his thirst. And Sally’s brother returned to visit, but this time, it was to evict the gang from the house so he could sell it. However, while he was trying to fix the plumbing, there was an accident and he was electrocuted to death.
While Sally said she was going to try to scare her brother away, this was way to extreme for her—so what was this strange force or spirit that was trying to maim and kill Robbie? Could it have been the spirit of Sally’s dead fiance getting revenge? Or maybe it was that odd girl that Sally keeps running into in the past? Will Sally be able to use her magic to bring her brother back to life, and if so, how will that affect their relationship, since he would know the truth about her? At least there’s one positive thing about the incident—with Robbie dead, I guess that means they don’t have to move out.
On tonight’s episode, “Gallows Humor,” Sally learns more than she bargained for after going to Donna for help dealing with her latest loss; Aidan and Suzanna find themselves face-to-face with the truth about their tumultuous past; Nora and Josh seek out an old friend who might be able to turn things around.
See what Sally learns tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Intelligence, Castle, The Blacklist, Almost Human, The Following, Star-Crossed, Switched at Birth, Archer, Worst Cooks in America, and Teen Wolf.
This week, so many show return to our TV, and Mom is one of those comedies I just cannot miss! The last episode, Christy tried to connect with her father, much to her mother’s displeasure. This kind of mistrust in this family is so great, and Allison Janney and Anna Farris really know how to play off each other without making their relationship seem toxic.
On tonight’s episode, “Jail, Jail and Japanese Porn,” when Christy puts her new relationship ahead of friends and family, Bonnie has to pick up the slack.
Find out how Bonnie feels about that on CBS on 9:30/8:30c.
I’ll also be watching Almost Human, 2 Broke Girls, How I Met Your Mother, Mike & Molly, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Castle.

Last week on Castle, Beckett & Castle picked their song, which would be the one they dance to at their wedding. I’m glad they finally chose one, and I love the music for it (& the significance, as it was playing when Beckett went to him to tell him she loved him at the end of season four. But really, the lyrics for this just…don’t fit. “Nothing goes as planned. Everything will break. People say goodbye, In their own special way. All that you rely on, And all that you can fake, Will leave you in the morning, But find you in the day.//Oh, you’re in my veins, And I cannot get you out. Oh, you’re all I taste, At night inside of my mouth. Oh, you run away, ‘Cause I am not what you found. Oh, you’re in my veins, And I cannot get you out.” Really? Does that sound 1) like a love song, and 2) like a song you’d want to dance to at your wedding? Huh. Regardless, last week was a great episode. It was a lot of fun seeing Castle back at one of his old high schools, where the principal really didn’t look too fondly on him. *laugh*
On tonight’s episode, “Room 147,” when a guilt-ridden young woman confesses to the murder of a struggling actor—knowing details only the killer could know—Beckett and Castle seem to have an open-and-shut case, until they uncover proof that their suspect couldn’t possibly be the killer. When a second person confesses, equally convinced they committed the murder, the team realizes the case is far more mysterious than they thought. Phil LaMarr (Futurama, Family Guy), John Getz, Bradford Anderson (Bradford Anderson), Julia Cho, & Kelly Hawthorne guest star.
To see how the young woman knows the details of the murder, tune in to ABC at 10:01/9:01c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Almost Human, Bitten, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Worst Cooks in America, & Mystery Diners.
