Don’t know what to watch tonight? Here are my top recommendations for Thursday.
The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm EST) – Professor Proton is back! Bob Newhart reprises his Emmy award winning role as Professor Proton, childhood hero of Leonard and Sheldon. But wait. There’s more. After Leonard gets Professor Proton’s help with an experiment, Sheldon befriends Bill Nye, arch-nemesis of Professor Proton. All this episode is missing is Beakman from Beakman’s World. Seriously, don’t miss this one.
The Crazy Ones (CBS, 9pm EST) – Josh Groban guest stars as a former co-worker of Sydney’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar), who has written a song about her. This show is a gem. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should check it out. PS – I’m writing this while Mrs. Doubtfire is on.

Wondering what to watch tonight? Here are my Wednesday recommendations.
Criminal Minds (CBS, 9pm EST) – The team deals with a killer that strangles victims and keeps some sort of memento from each one. This sounds like it has the potential to be pretty gross.
Law and Order: SVU (NBC, 9pm EST) – Tony Award winner Billy Porter (star of Kinky Boots on Broadway) guest stars in an episode about a 4 year old that accuses Porter’s character of sexual abuse. Billy Porter is a phenomenal actor so this episode is a must-see.
American Horror Story: Coven (FX, 10pm EST) – Tonight’s episode is going to have a lot going on. We’ve got the undead that surrounded the school last week and Fiona and Myrtle fighting for control of the coven. Zoe also learns a new power. The episode is called Burn, Witch. Burn! so something is definitely going to go down.
South Park (Comedy Central, 10pm EST) – The description says, “When Cartman pulls a prank, peace emerges around the world.” If this doesn’t make you want to check this one out, I don’t know what will.
FYI, Modern Family is not on this week, due to the CMA Awards on ABC.

Agents of SHIELD (ABC, 8pm EST) – The team is back with an all new episode tonight featuring unexplainable floating victims, a weird humming sound and an invisible threat. It looks to be an intense episode with most of the team on the verge of tears in the promo. Stay strong, Fitz and Simmons!
Supernatural (CW, 9pm EST) – What do you do when the only witness is a dog? Well, if you’re Dean, it looks like you spend an episode mind melding with a German Shepherd. PS – If you have Directv, you’ll see the description says it’s a German Sheppard. Given that’s how Mark A. Sheppard spells his name, I’m sure that would be a completely different kind of episode.
Now that shepherd has lost all meaning as a word and looks totally weird, let’s move on to:
Sons of Anarchy (FX, 10pm EST) – Check your DVRs because this episode is scheduled to be 92 minutes long. Gemma confronts Margaret Murphy, the hospital administrator and as we know, these encounters never go well for Margaret. Clay also returns in what looks to be another bad day for him. Also, Jax and DA Patterson (CCH Pounder) sit down to talk. This is definitely a do not miss episode.
Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo, 8pm EST) – They’re back! Get ready for some gone with the wind fabulousness and craziness as the lovely ladies of Atlanta return with an all new season.
The Walking Dead (AMC, 9pm EST) – Tonight is all new in an episode that’s sure to be trouble for the group at the prison and even worse trouble for those on the supply run.
Talking Dead (AMC, 10pm EST) – Don’t worry. Marilyn Manson is not a guest again tonight but Chris Jericho and Gillian Jacobs are.
Watch What Happens Live (Bravo, 11pm) – We’re totally going to need Andy Cohen break down the Atlanta premiere for us. Even better, Kandi and Kenya are the guests. I’m pretty sure Kenya is leaving her gold pants at home and isn’t going to twirl, twirl, twirl.
Elsewhere on TV, at 8pm EST, there’s The Amazing Race on CBS (scheduled to start at 8:30), The Simpsons on Fox and Once Upon a Time on ABC with everyone’s favorite little mermaid.
Revenge is on at 9pm on ABC and The Good Wife is scheduled to start at 9:30pm on CBS.
What are you most looking forward to tonight?
United Feature Syndicate Inc.
Staying in tonight? Here are some options for what to watch.
The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm EST) – It’s a repeat from January but it’s one where the dudes go on a road trip in costume.
Saturday Night Live Halloween (NBC, 8pm EST) – This special will be a compilation of some of your favorite Halloween sketches over the years. Spooky, scary. It should be pretty awesome.
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC, 8pm EST) – Everyone’s favorite classic with a bonus animated short called, “You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown.” That doesn’t sound like too much of a bummer.
Elsewhere at 8pm EST, 28 Days Later is on BBC America, FX has Paranormal Activity 2, The Lost Boys is on VH1 and Ovation is airing The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
At 9pm EST, The Crazy Ones, Sean Saves the World and Grey’s Anatomy are all new.
It’s the day before Halloween and TV knows it. So, what’s on tonight?
Criminal Minds (CBS, 9pm EST) – The episode focuses on ritualistic murder that may have a connection to the Salem witch trials. Also, Garcia has a Day of the Dead party.
Law and Order: SVU (NBC, 9pm EST) – This is a repeat of the two hour season premiere. If you haven’t seen it, DVR it. Just be aware that the first hour is very intense and upsetting if you’re a Benson fan.
Modern Family (ABC, 9pm EST) – It’s a repeat of last year’s Halloween episode but it’s definitely worth watching again.
American Horror Story: Coven (FX, 10pm EST) – The fallout from last week’s episode makes this a must see. The Council of Witchcraft (and Frances Conroy) arrives at the school to investigate the events of last week.
South Park (Comedy Central, 10pm EST) – It’s an all new episode featuring the return of Ike and Yo Gabba Gabba. Intrigued? Me too. If you’re Twitter-inclined, tune your TV to Comedy Central at 9:30pm EST and your Twitter device of choice to @southpark for a live-tweet of last week’s episode, Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers.
What I’m watching tonight:
Agents of SHIELD – Tonight is a re-air of the pilot if you missed it or just need to spend some more time with Coulson and Lola. I feel the series got into a really good flow in the past two weeks. It’s still got a few more growing pains to go through but with Joss, Jed and Maurissa helping the series, I’m not concerned.
PS – Fitz and Simmons own my heart.
Supernatural – Tonight’s episode features Felicia Day, a Wizard of Oz theme and a nice shout out to us fans after the Supernatural title card. Have your remote ready to hit pause and look in the bottom left corner of The Winchesters of Oz. Jared Padalecki (@jarpad on Twitter) posted this image yesterday. It’s very sweet.
PS – This is me, eagerly awaiting Tahmoh Penikett’s return, whenever that may be.
Sons of Anarchy – After last week’s well done and heartbreaking Venus Van Dam episode, we can count on a left turn back to all the crap the club has been dealing with this season. Are you Team Gemma or Team Tara? I love Tara but I just can’t get with her endgame ever justifying what she did last week. When the truth about that eventually comes out, stand back.
PS – I got my Venus and Tig fix for the season in abundance so I can’t complain about anything that happens from here on out this year. Well, I shouldn’t. I reserve the right to riot after we see who’s left standing at the end of November.
That’s my lineup. What are you watching?
