Unsure of what to watch tonight? Here are my Monday recommendations.
How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8pm EST) – In tonight’s episode, Robin and Lily give challenges to Barney, which he — wait for it — accepts. Also, it’s the return of Bryan Cranston!
2 Broke Girls (CBS, 8:30pm EST) – Max and Caroline go to a hot restaurant that’s almost impossible to get into. Will shenanigans ensue? Most definitely.
Over on TBS, there’s a Big Bang Theory marathon from 9pm to 11pm.
South Park‘s Coon and Friends trilogy is on Comedy Central starting at 9:30pm. If you’ve been missing Mysterion as much as I have or have a fondness for Cartman and Cthulhu, this is the trilogy to watch.

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.

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.
