“Chuck” (8 p.m., NBC). Chuck and Sarah worked well together as a couple couple in last week’s episode. Let’s hope the chemistry lasts. Tonight they get a lesson in couples spying from guest stars Fred Willard are Swoozie Kurtz. It’ll be worth watching for them alone.
“Gossip Girl” (9 p.m., The CW). This show has devolved to utter stupidity. At this point, it’s best to watch as a drinking game; take a shot every time there’s a plot twist so inane that you go “Whaaaat?” You’ll be wasted after an hour.
“How I Met Your Mother” (8 p.m., CBS). I’m getting tired of this new show, rerun, new show, rerun pattern. But now that it’s May sweeps, we should get some consistency until the end of the season. Tonight Ted and Barney fight over Robin, which sounds kinda ridiculous.
“Castle” (10 p.m., ABC). Celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito guest stars as himself as Beckett and Castle investigate the case of a chef who froze to death in a meat locker. Unfortunately, Rocco does not play the murdered chef. That would have been awesome. Like Ben Affleck in “Smokin’ Aces.”
“Real Housewives of New Jersey” (10 p.m., Bravo). Don’t watch, it only encourages them.
“Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (11:35 p.m., NBC). Godsmack performs. Wow, what is this, 1998? Was Limp Bizkit busy?
