Niccolò Machiavelli and his wiles were born on this day in 1469.
Missing (ABC 8pm) As Giancarlo and Becca race to find Azimoff (Karel Roden), Violet and Dax try to apprehend Becca; an enemy is revealed.
Do you ever feel like shows give people “cool” names just to suck people into watching them? “Violet and Dax” has an alluring ring to it. Not alluring enough to make me watch Ashley Judd on a weekly basis, though.
The Big Bang Theory (CBS 8pm) Wedding plans are jeopardized when NASA reschedules Howard’s mission; Leonard says something in the bedroom that surprises Penny.
Community (NBC 8pm) Course Listing Unavailable: When a beloved classmate dies unexpectedly, Britta uses skills from psychology class to counsel the study group; Chang tries to seize more control over campus security.
Community has been pretty hit or miss this season; here’s hoping this one’s a hit.
American Idol (Fox 8pm) A finalist is eliminated; performances by Carrie Underwood and Coldplay.
Bringing out the big guns to (try and) alleviate the tedium of the soul-sucking 48-month long season of American Idol, I see.
30 Rock (NBC 8:30) Queen of Jordan 2: Mystery of the Phantom Pooper
As long as there’s plenty of D’Fwan, I’ll be happy.
Touch (Fox 9pm) Following Jake’s numbers, Martin helps a Frenchwoman find her biological mother and twin sister; when an astronaut loses contact with Earth, his superstitious wife frets.
This show is just so ridiculously implausible. There aren’t enough wooly suspenders in the world.
How It’s Made (The Science Channel 9pm) Canvas wall tents; peace pipes; shredded wheat cereal; cannons.
Leave your best scenario for those four items being used together in the comments. Best comment wins a super-duper prize!
Scandal (ABC 10pm) Crash and Burn: Olivia and her team help defend the pilot of a commercial plane that crashed, killing all onboard.
That’s just an insensitive episode title.
7 Days of Sex (Lifetime 10pm) A couple with three children struggle to keep their romance alive; a wife hopes to loosen up her uptight husband.
I’ve heard a high colonic can work wonders, but most people probably don’t want to introduce that into their love-making.
The Pauly D Project (MTV 10:30pm)
It’s like the poor man’s version of Entourage.
