New Episodes Tonight:

Betrayal: Season 1

Plagued by a predictable story, lackluster writing, and uninspired acting, critics say Betrayal is far less compelling — even as a guilty pleasure — than it ought to be. In tonight’s episode, Drew begins to sniff out Sara’s encounters with Jack, while Karsten plays dirty to keep his empire and T.J. falls in with the wrong crowd.

Boardwalk Empire: Season 4

The pundits say Boardwalk Empire continues to benefit from its meticulously realized period trappings, but what keeps the show watchable is its supremely talented ensemble players. Tonight, Nucky (Steve Buscemi) and Eli (Shea Whigham) get into a dispute, and Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) has a surprise meeting at work.

Drop Dead Diva: Season 5

On tonight’s episode of everyone’s favorite courtroom dramedy about a model trapped in the body of a lawyer, Jane (Brooke Elliott) defends a woman who was arrested in the midst of a huge drug bust.

Eastbound & Down: Season 4

Wild-and-crazy relief pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) has settled down and become a suburban family man. But is this former hell-raiser getting a little stir crazy? Tonight, Kenny makes good on a threat, and Steve finds him a charity to promote for Guy’s dragon boat race.

The Good Wife: Season 5

The beat goes on for Julianna Margulies and The Good Wife, one of broadcast TV’s most reliable critical favorites. Tonight, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) defends a surrogate mother in a dispute with the biological parents.

Hello Ladies: Season 1

Stephen Merchant is an intelligent performer, but Hello Ladies is largely a squirm-inducing comedy that lacks the empathy of his best work. On tonight’s episode, Stuart (Merchant) invites himself to a swanky dinner party, to the chagrin of a friend.

Homeland: Season 3

As the stakes get higher, Homeland remains a roller coaster ride of tension, and Claire Danes is riveting in what critics are calling one of the best written thrillers on television. Tonight, Claire meets with a new client, while Jessica seeks help from the police when Dana runs away.

Masters of Sex: Season 1

The critics say Masters of Sex is seductive and nuanced, featuring smart performances, deft direction, and impeccable period decor. Tonight, Johnson’s ex-husband volunteers for the study, much to her surprise, while Masters’s mother visits and Libby plays matchmaker to Virginia and Ethan.

The Mentalist: Season 6

In tonight’s episode, a fake list of Red John suspects is stolen from Jane, spelling trouble for those whose names are on it.

Once Upon a Time: Season 3

Tonight, Neal is captured by a Lost Boy and Mr. Gold confronts Peter Pan, while back in fairy-tale land, Bae is kidnapped and Rumpelstiltskin embarks on a search.

Revenge: Season 3

As the title indicates, Emily VanCamp (Emily Thorne) is still out for revenge. Tonight, an unexpected friend helps Emily sort out where her plan went wrong, and Victoria begins planning for her own future.

The Walking Dead: Season 4

Consistently thrilling, with solid character development and enough gore to please grindhouse fans, the critics say this season of The Walking Dead continues to demonstrate why it’s one of the best horror shows on television. Tonight, a new threat runs wild within the prison.

Witches of East End: Season 1

Critics say that although it’s ridiculously soapy, Witches of East End is often campy fun; it’s a supernatural spectacle that’s entertaining despite its silliness. On tonight’s episode, Ingrid (Rachel Boston) is conflicted about using the reincarnation spell.
