What to Watch Tonight: Cougar Town, The River, and New Girl


What to watch on Tuesday, February 14...

Happy Valentine's Day! Or, you know, happy regular Tuesday! Because who cares, right? (Unless you DO care, in which case, you better run out and buy a bouquet of roses off some dude on the corner!) Anyway, check out tonight's array of hot, sexy, and sensual offerings:

SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 8:30pm, ABC
Cougar Town
It took a while, but ABC finally deigned to allow Cougar Town to return, so that's worth celebrating right there. In tonight's season premiere, Jules attempts to prove to Grayson that she's not as predictable as he thinks. Plus, Ellie frets over whether Stan is the spawn of the devil, and Travis adjusts to living in off-campus housing with his dad's dog.

9pm, Fox
New Girl
Jess decides to celebrate Valentine's Day by having a one-night stand and Schmidt agrees to be her wingman. Meanwhile Nick's runs into trouble during his special night with Julia when he finds himself more excited about hanging out with Julia's assistant than with her. Uh-oh. Please don't go, Lizzy Caplan!

9pm, ABC
The River
Tonight hilarious cameraman A.J. finds himself at the center of things when he has to overcome some metaphorical demons in order to save the crew from a blindness-inducing tree spore. Meanwhile a local tribe mulls whether or not to just murder the whole bunch of them.

10pm, FX
Justified
Raylan must track down the crime spree-in' Dewey Crowe after he goes nuts from a run-in with an organ-harvesting ring. Elsewhere Boyd continues getting into heaps of trouble. Boyd <3s trouble so much!

10pm, TNT
Southland
Tonight John gets a little too involved in a case when he attempts to save a suicidal teen. Elsewhere Sammy deals with the consequences of using a drug dealer as an informant, plus Tang must deal with closet skeletons when someone from her past decides to swing by for some drama.

10pm, MTV
Teen Mom 2
MTV's most frightening horror show wraps up its second season tonight as Leah starts moving out of Corey's house, Jenelle deals with a possible bipolar diagnosis, and Chelsea takes a stab at her GED test. Seriously, this show should be underscored with fright strings.

Oh, I'm also watching Top Gear US which has its first new episode of the season tonight. I forgot because A) it's not that great a show, and B) isn't on your list.

I think it's not on the list because even the people at TV.com can't believe it wasn't cancelled after it's first season.

NCIS, Cougar Town, Justified, Tosh.0, Key & Peele, Late Late Show.



Man, how wild was Late Late Show last night?!? Carol Burnett told a story about making out with Julie Andrews in front of the First Lady, and later asked if the answer was her anus. That was awesome! I cannot imagine Joss Stone can top that, although she is surprisingly charming.

New Girl (who could resist?), Southland and Justified... and The River if they kill everyone... (haha, who am I kidding? I suffered through the pilot, why stop now? Anywhy, it makes you appreciate the good stuff even more!)

C-Town, New Girl, The River, Raising Hope, Justified, Ringer then Ricky G on TDS, Goodman n Nealon on Jimmy K, Idris Elba on Jimmy F because 4 eps of Luther was nowhere near enough (Damn u BBC!) and Craigie Ferg on Craig Fergie. Maybe Wendy Williams. No idea who she is but i know who Rebecca Romijn is and i like her. Even more since she dropped 'Stamos' as a last name. Might Record Leno just to see who wins the 'most unfunny jokes' contest between him and Tyler Perry.

glad Cougar Town is back, but it's always super weird when they have a baby one season and then the next it's like 5 years old.. creepy.
