What to Watch Tonight: Almost Human, Teen Wolf, and How I Met Your Mother

By Andy Daglas

Feb 03, 2014


What to watch on Monday, February 3...


8pm, NBC
Hollywood Game Night
“Orange Is the New Game Night” rounds up Chris Colfer, Rosie O'Donnell, Penny Marshall, Taryn Manning, Donald Faison, and Kaley Cuoco. Hopefully at least one of the games will require them to chase a chicken possessing mythical properties.


8pm, Fox
Almost Human
An elite DRN (Gina Carano)—whose dial is set closer to “commando” than “cop”—goes haywire in “Unbound.” To put the brakes on her rampage, Kennex and Dorian consult a renowned DRN creator (John Larroquette).


8pm, ABC Family
Switched at Birth
Word of Emmett’s revived love life pushes Bay’s buttons, while sparks begin to fly between Daphne and Campbell. Elsewhere in “It Hurts to Wait With Love If Love Is Somewhere Else,” Regina and Angelo talk shop, and John stuns the fam with an uncharacteristic purchase. Is it a whole bushel of corgis? I bet it’s corgis. C’mon, ABC Family press release, fess up. Just between you and me.


8pm, CBS
How I Met Your Mother
In “Sunrise,” Robin and Ted rehash their romantic history, which invites final-season returns from Sarah Chalke, Ashley Williams, Abby Elliott, and presumably one or two of the doofs Robin’s dated for good measure. Also putting in appearances this week: Bill Fagerbakke as Marvin Eriksen (not the baby one), and Tim Gunn as noted rake Tim Gunn.


8pm, The CW
Hart of Dixie
Zoe and Joel’s new abode could stand a repair or 12, but the only way to scrounge up the necessary cash is for Zoe to help Brick with a townwide fitness scheme. Meanwhile in “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” AnnaBeth arranges an impromptu bachelorette party, and a writer’s-blocked Joel gloms onto Wade—and then winds up out of his depth manning the bar solo.


9pm, Fox
The Following
“Trust Me,” this week’s episode beseeches. “The FBI catching wind of Ryan’s freelance snooping won’t lead them down yet another blind alley of numbskullery!" it insists. "Joe’s latest evil plot will be chock-full of logic and narrative momentum! You can trust your ol’ pal The Following! Have I ever steered you wrong before?”


9pm, NBC
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit: 50 Years of Beautiful
Heidi Klum hosts this retrospective of that beloved beacon of male gaze, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Magazine mainstays including Tyra Banks, Christie Brinkley, and Kate Upton also appear, with music provided by Tim McGraw, John Legend, and more.


9pm, ABC Family
The Fosters
The family visits Callie at her new digs, but the reunion is soured by questions about her future plans and tension between her and Brandon. Elsewhere in “Family Day,” Jude has his own choice to make about whether to stick with the Fosters, and Frank makes a startling gesture toward Stef and Lena.


9pm, Syfy
Being Human
“Panic Womb” finds Aidan and Kat’s relationship flowering, while Josh and Nora meet a couple who inspires them to contemplate their own future. In less romantic developments, Sally dons her sleuthing cap to confront the mystery of “Lil’ Smokie.”


10pm, Syfy
Lost Girl
After thieves strike the Clubhouse in “Turn to Stone,” Kenzi is forced to make a confession that imperils her friendship with Bo. In their basement prison, Lauren reveals a secret of her own to Crystal.


10pm, CBS
Intelligence
A Mexican drug cartel abducts the daughter of a U.S. senator in “The Rescue,” sending Gabriel and Riley south of the border to effect her safe return. Equally troubling, Lillian learns that the culprits have a link to her father (Peter Coyote).


10pm, MTV
Teen Wolf
Masked men are on the prowl in “Silverfinger,” and Kira is convinced she’s their target. Can Scott, Derek, and their hirsute brethren repel the enigmatic invaders and still make time for egregious shirtlessness?


10pm, ABC
Castle
Castle and Beckett investigate the murder of the assistant to a domineering fashion editor (Frances Fisher) in “Dressed to Kill.” Might Beckett’s past life in modelling open a few doors as they navigate the world of haute couture?


10pm, FX
Archer
In “Archer Vice: House Call,” the gang holds an intervention to pull a coke-gobbling Pam back from the brink, which, good luck with that. A tough task is made even tougher by the appearance of an unwelcome intruder.


SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 11pm, Showtime

Jimmy Fallon and Zach Galifianakis are the guests as the talker hosted by David Steinberg returns for another season of anecdotes and analysis.

    This weeks episode of Intelligence was somewhat better than last week.....until Riley didnt follow the direct order to leave. She bugs me and Im almost done with this show, mostly because of that idiot.
