by | September 23, 2013 | Comments

Welcome to What’s On Tonight, RT’s compendium of the primetime shows that are worth your time. This evening’s slate includes a couple intriguing new shows (The Blacklist, Mom, Hostages) and a bunch of returning favorites (2 Broke Girls, Castle, How I Met Your Mother). So grab your remote, find your favorite spot on the couch, and tune in for lots of television goodness!

Premiering Tonight:

Mom: Season 1

Critics say Anna Faris and Allison Janney share an undeniable comedic chemistry, and if the jokes are sometimes too crass, Mom represents a sincere (and often witty) attempt to address addiction issues.

The Blacklist: Season 1

Critics say James Spader is riveting as a criminal-turned-informant, and his presence goes a long way toward making this twisty but occasionally implausible crime procedural compelling.

Hostages: Season 1

The critics feel that Hostages has intriguing premise and handsome production values, but its twisty plot sometimes strains credulity.

2 Broke Girls: Season 3

Once again, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs are female and financially insolvent as the third season of CBS’ sitcom returns tonight.

Castle: Season 6

Now that Castle (Nathan Fillion) has popped the question to Beckett (Stana Katic), will our heroes be able to solve crimes while reflecting on their personal lives?

How I Met Your Mother: Season 9

This it it, people: this is the season in which we finally meet your mother. (Well, not your mother, but… you understand.) Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin’s (Cobie Smulders) wedding is the backdrop for plenty of season-long intrigue.

New Episodes Tonight:

Sleepy Hollow: Season 1

Despite its overstuffed plot, the Certified Fresh Sleepy Hollow is a fun romp with exciting action scenes and sparkling production values, according to critics.

Bones: Season 9

The venerable crime crime solving couple of Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz is back, and they’ve got a bunch of new supporting players.
