The Real Housewives of Miami gave us a "A Ple-Thora of Lies" the normal drama and just a touch of common sense. We break it all down in our THG +/- review.

The Most Patient Housewife

Lisa Hochstein has become my favorite housewife. She's funny, says what she thinks without being rude and doesn't pretend to be someone she's not.

And Plus 50 for bringing a bit of much needed common sense. That's darn hard to find among The Real Housewives of Miami ... or anywhere.

One again Lisa had to deal with another "fabulous visit" from her in-laws and was it just me or was Marina's voice the equivalent of fingernails on a blackboard? Minus 20.

If the trip to the Russian deli was awkward, dinner was somewhere between painful and cathartic.

I loved it when Marina complained that Lisa doesn't return her calls and Lisa responded by admitting she doesn't believe Marina likes her. Plus 15 for the honesty.

Aaaaaaaand Dancing With the Stars is back for its 17th season on ABC!

On Monday's season premiere, we saw 12 (quasi) celebs take to the parquet with the goal of hoisting the Mirror Ball and/or boosting their careers.

Some were better than others. Who do you think is the favorite? Put another way, who is your favorite to make it all the way to the end this spring?

Dancing With the Stars Cast Pic Season 17

Tonight was competition only, but the first duo will be eliminated next Monday, combining judges' scores from that night and public votes from tonight.

No more Tuesday results shows this season, in a departure from past years.

All in all, it was a terrific showing for the first week of the fall campaign from the new cast. Read our breakdown and scores from the premiere after the jump ...

Sleepy Hollow centers around the resurrection of Ichabod Crane in modern day New York.

He's on a mission from George Washington to stop one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from regaining his skull and putting an end to mankind in the process.

In other words: the new Fox series, which kicked off tonight following the Bones Season 9 premiere, is totally and utterly insane. But it knows it's totally and utterly insane - and that's why it may become a surprise hit for the network.

Not every series can be Breaking Bad. Not every show aims to win an Emmy.

Bones is back with new cases, new (and old) faces, and one name on everyone's mind: Pelant.

Where is he? Who knows? Maybe the clock-radios! 

Check out our THG recap here and then head over to the Bones review for "The Secrets In The Proposal" for the full run-down and discussion.

  • Everybody Hates Booth: With absolutely no one on his side, Booth turns to former priest and current bartender and friend Aldo Clemens to make his confession and tell someone--anyone--what's going on with Pelant. Their mutual decision made inside a walk-in cooler? Pelant must die. (Like we didn't already know that.)
  • Heartbreak! Brennan: Brennan is understandably heartbroken by Booth calling off their engagement. So heartbroken that three months later they're still living together but she's finally pushing him away and thinks that he might be cheating and/or he just wants to have a final fling before settling down, despite the fact that flings are way not his style and he tells her how much he loves her every chance he gets.

NCIS Season 11 premieres one week from tomorrow with an episode shaping up to be as memorable as any in the CBS show's decade-long history.

An extended version of the preview for "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" focuses on the impending, emotional departure of Cote de Pablo's Ziva David.

While that alone would make for gripping television, it appears to be woven into an explosive and intricate story in typical NCIS fashion. Take a look:

The premiere will feature an explosion that takes the life of someone close to the agency and changes Parsons’ perspective on Gibbs, along with the team.

Who dies? How might this play a role in Ziva's farewell? And who is targeting the NCIS agents, last seen resigning en masse in an effort to save Gibbs?

Will Cote de Pablo's decision to exit the series, ironically, be the event that finally brings Tiva together, if only for one fleeting moment to start the season?

We'll find out when NCIS Season 11 begins September 24.
