I am fail. I feel that way, because I’m deserting my Criminal Minds gang for a new team, if only for the night. I feel bad, because I know the BAU team is delving into their feelings about the loss of Prentiss tonight. But…my heart is beating for another group tonight. Who do I mean? The gang on the new FOX comedy, Breaking In. The show stars Christian Slater (The Forgotten, My Own Worst Enemy), Bret Harrison (Reaper), Odette Yustman (Brothers & Sisters, October Road), Alphonso McAuley, and Trevor Moore, as well as Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor on Smallville), who guest stars.

Christian Slater plays Oz, the head of Contra Security, which is a high-tech security firm that takes extreme – and often questionable – measures to sell its protection services and is corporate America’s answer to “The A-Team,” giving clients a sense of security by first ripping it away.

On tonight’s premiere, we learn how Cameron came to join the team and see him trying to deal with a major life change and his crazy coworkers at the same time.

Don’t miss our interview with star Christian Slater, and then tune in tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breaking In @ Clicker.

The last episode of Criminal Minds was huge, what with Emily Prentiss leaving. The team is going to be dealing with the aftermath of all of that for awhile, and tonight, we get to see the first of that. My poor BAUers are going to have to go through therapy, which should be fun to watch, but heartbreaking, all the same.

On tonight’s new episode, when a gang of suspected murderers start targeting a new victim per night, the BAU team travels to Portland to stop them before they can strike again.

See how the gang handles the team post-Prentiss on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

We’re half way home, so we have earned a much needed TV break! Whether you are a fan of comedy or drama, escape into a world of television for at least a short bit of relaxation. – Jamie

Have you not been tuning in to see Mr. Sunshine? Well, you’ve been missing out! Matthew Perry, writer and star of the show, continues his infamous sarcastic wit that you loved on Friends and added to it within the confines of a sports arena. Dash in a bit of wacky humor from the effortless Allison Janney, and you’ve got yourself a show worthy of kudos!

On tonight’s episode of Mr. Sunshine, Ben (Matthew Perry) agrees to take in Roman (Nate Torrence), you know who happens to be Crystal’s (Allison Janney) son. Gasp! We all know that whenever you allow a coworker to stay at your home, hijinx is bound to ensue. Meanwhile, Alice (Andrea Anders) starts feeling down, because she’s unable to keep up with boyfriend, Alonzo (James Lesure). Add in an on-ice battle between Crystal and a Smurf…and you’ve got comedy gold!

Mr. Sunshine airs at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Mr. Sunshine @ Clicker.

While I strongly suggest you check out the new Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour, I’m going to stick with the original tonight. I love the dynamics of the original team, and the look of the sexy boys. Especially Shemar Moore… I adore him. 😀

Wednesday means that the week is in full swing, but at the same time it also means that we’re in the home stretch! This week has been nonstop new episodes of your favorite shows, and premieres of some that may even be your new favorite, and today is no different. Wednesday night TV is sure to cure your midweek blues with tons of great choices to take your cares away!

The long awaited midseason show premieres are here, and they are bringing on the funny starting with ABC’s new show Mr. Sunshine. Matthew Perry (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Friends) and Allison Janney (The West Wing) headline this charming show about a guy named Ben Donovan (Perry), who is the general manager of the Sunshine Center. Every night, Ben is forced to navigate demands, mishaps, and many employee screw ups in order to put on a show for 18,000 screaming people. Janney plays Crystal, Ben’s boss and the arena owner, who is very erratic and seemingly off her rocker. Andrea Anders (Better Off Ted, The Class) stars as Alice, the cutie tomboy marketing director at the arena, who just so happens to be Ben’s friend with benefits. Also along for the ride is Alonzo (James Lesure, Las Vegas), who is a former basketball player who is ruggedly handsome and unbelievably happy. Heather is Ben’s sweet and attractive assistant who fits right in with these merry misfits as she’s got a very colorful background. Rounding things out is Crystal’s son, Roman, who is the arena’s newest, and highly dimwitted, employee.

The pilot episode airs tonight, where we find Ben spending his 40th birthday trying to get rid of a hockey rink that won’t melt, looking for an elephant that becomes lost in the building, and trying to fix a PR nightmare. Meanwhile, Alice decides to end her “casual” relationship with Ben.

Try this new show on for size tonight at 9:30/8:30c on ABC. Learn where to find episodes online of Mr. Sunshine @ Clicker.
