    I’m pretty far behind on actually watching some of the shows i have pvr’d, so most of my shows tonight will be pvr’d to watch later. Here’s my Tuesday picks;
    No Ordinary Fam, Glee, Parenthood and Detroit 187

    Tuesday for me involves No Ordinary Family (recorded, watched later), Glee, and my guilty pleasure of Teen Mom @ 9 pm. Looking forward to Glee (after last week’s heart-stopping preview), but NOT the cry-singing. Sheesh. Can she just sing ONE song without bawling? Please?! Might have to listen to the number without watching the screen.

    I watched No Ordinary Family last week and I’ll watch it this week, as well. I’m really excited for Glee tonight! I’ll also be recording Life Unexpected, Raising Hope, Running Wilde, Parenthood, and The Good Wife.
