Other Options

  • Believe (NBC): New. Winter goes to some past protectors of Bo for some help. Some of Channing’s past is revealed.
  • Devious Maids (Lifetime): Season Premiere. Marisol has found a new love. Peri learns that Rosie wasn’t deported. Carmen tries to settle into her fake relationship. Runs 62 minutes. Plays again later. All 12 episodes of season one replay today leading up to tonight’s second season premiere. I quite enjoyed the first season, but wondered if the show would lose something in subsequent seasons much like Desperate Housewives did. Well, season two starts out in much the same fun way as season one did. They have added in some new mysteries, but I think working in a shorter season format that it has a better chance of staying fun and not falling off as fast as DH did. Will you be watching tonight?
  • Mad Men (AMC): New. Peggy gets a flower delivery to her office. Pete deals with some new business politics. Joan deals with something awkward. Runs 64 minutes. Plays again later.
  • The Mentalist (CBS): New. Jane works his way into a men’s club after the body of a women is found dead nearby.
