There’s certainly new shows to watch this week, but it is pretty rough out there in TV land.
My viewing plans for the weekend includes finishing off my rewatch of 30 Rock - I’ve got the final three episodes for tonight. After that, I’m planning to watch a whole lot of Veronica Mars ahead of its return next week.
I was never all that taken with Suits, but I like Gina Torres enough to feel inspired to check out her spin-off series Pearson.
