New Episodes Tonight:

The Crazy Ones: Season 1

The pundits say that Robin Williams’ comic dexterity helps to carry The Crazy Ones, a workplace sitcom that scores a few laughs but mostly feels too improvised to fully cohere. On tonight’s episode, things go wrong when everyone competes for the attention of a cosmopolitan client. More

Elementary: Season 2

Tonight, Holmes butts heads with the Polish mob in search of a killer, while Watson helps a friend with a search of a personal nature. More

The Michael J. Fox Show: Season 1

Critics say The Michael J. Fox Show benefits immeasurably from the warm, easy charisma of its star, who keeps things watchable even when the writing is uneven. Tonight, Mike (Fox) finds himself apologizing for Annie’s (Betsy Brandt) temper. More

The Millers: Season 1

Critics say Margo Martindale and the comically able ensemble help to elevate The Millers above its typical sitcom format, though the writing is still mostly generic. Tonight, Nathan (Will Arnett) goes into therapy to deal with his overbearing mother. More

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Season 1

The critics say Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is attractive to the eye and pleasantly narrated, but it loses some luster due to a jumbled story and Wonderland’s unlikable inhabitants. Tonight, we learn more about Will Scarlet (Michael Socha) and his days hanging out with Robin Hood. More

Parenthood: Season 5

With its strong cast and richly-drawn characters, Parenthood remains one of TV’s sharpest dramedies. Tonight, everybody deals with boundary issues. More

Reign: Season 1

So far, critics have been lukewarm on Reign, a light period drama that eschews historical accuracy for maximum pop appeal. In tonight’s episode, Mary (Adelaide Kane) and Francis (Toby Regbo) put on an affectionate display after their union comes under question by outsiders. More

Scandal: Season 3

Another season, another crisis (or crises) to manage. Tonight, Olivia’s newest client is a senator with a penchant for racy photographs, while Mellie herself gets sucked into a scandal with a congresswoman. More

Sean Saves the World: Season 1

Though Sean Hayes is a gifted comic actor, critics say Sean Saves the World is a mostly conventional sitcom whose efforts to squeeze humor out of Hayes’ frenzied antics are more tiresome than funny. Tonght, Sean tries to set up his mom on a date. More

Two and a Half Men: Season 11

The astonishingly resilient standard bearer for three camera sitcoms keeps chugging along, with Amber Tamblyn occupying the “half men” part of the equation. Tonight, Walden (Ashton Kutcher) helps Jenny (Tamblyn) realize her dream of becoming an actress. More

The Vampire Diaries: Season 5

It’s time to check in once again on the demonic doings in and around the supernatural hamlet of Mystic Falls, VA. Tonight, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) come together to help Stefan (Paul Wesley). More
