Prime Picks

The Big Bang Theory (CBS): Season Finale. Penny and Leonard both turn to Sheldon for advice after Leonard finally got up the courage to ask Penny out.
How I Met Your Mother (CBS): Season Finale. Ted is re-evaluating everything, including Stella, after an accident.

Solid Selections

Bones (FOX): Season Finale. The Gormogon serial killer is back and has left something for the team at the Jeffersonian. Then a lab explosion puts Zack in the hospital and the silver skeleton has vanished from the vault.

Two and a Half Men (CBS): Season Finale. Charlie realizes that he has met the daughter of the woman he is dating before.
Rules of Engagement (CBS): Season Finale. Russell is hosting a photo shoot for Audrey’s magazine in hopes of scoring a date with one of the models.

The Bachelorette (ABC): Season Premiere. Well, watching the last hour of this is better than Dateline NBC, but can’t really recommend either of them. With only three choices in the third hour of primetime, sometimes picking the second best is troublesome.

Don’t miss the season finale of The Big Bang Theory today, May 19. I am hearing there are going to be big things happening with the Leonard/Penny storyline, and a surprise ending. It should be great. You can see season finale promo pictures for The Big Bang Theory here:
