PGA Tour Golf
The PGA Tour makes its only stop of 2015 in West Virginia this week when the Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs hosts the Greenbrier Classic. A field including Bubba Watson, Patrick Reed, Tiger Woods and Hideki Matsuyama will tee it up on the historic 7,287-yard par-70 course that features generous fairways and undulating greens. Last year, Angel Cabrera claimed his first victory since 2009 with his two-stroke win over George McNeill.
The Astronaut Wives Club
With astronaut Scott Carpenter (Wilson Bethel) headed for the launch pad, his wife Rene (Yvonne Strahovski) is sought for a major magazine interview in the new episode "Retroattitude." Deke Slayton's (Kenneth Mitchell) uncertainty about continuing in the space program leads to discord with his spouse Marge (Erin Cumnmings), who receives support from the other wives. Odette Annable, Bret Harrison, JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Desmond Harrington also star.
The Big Bang Theory
Is anything guaranteed to make two people fall in love? Sheldon and Penny (Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) give a test drive to an experiment that promises that result in "The Intimacy Acceleration." The story also pays tribute to late cast member Carol Ann Susi, who played Mrs. Wolowitz -- whose funeral her son and Bernadette (Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch) are returning from when they hit airport complications. Johnny Galecki also stars.
Beauty and the Beast
Familiar movie face Saul Rubinek ("Unforgiven") guest stars as a counselor who tries to help Cat and Vincent (Kristin Kreuk, Jay Ryan) resolve their relationship issues in the new episode "Heart of the Matter." That won't be easy, especially since Cat is preoccupied with exposing an illegal organ-transplant ring. The script is by Jeff Reno and Ron Osborn, who similarly mixed the procedural and the personal as writer-producers on "Moonlighting."
Yes, it's a traditional food staple, but that doesn't mean you want to end up wearing it. "It's the Macaroni & Cheese Bomb!" describes how those who answer questions incorrectly could be "decorated" in this new episode, as host Tom Papa oversees the competition that turns wrong responses into the fuses that set off said bomb. Innocent bystanders also could wind up with clothing bathed in pasta, thanks to the force of the detonation.
Not only do the competitors have weekly cook-offs against each other, they also have them against rivals of different ages as the second season of this contest begins with "I'm Bringing the Spice," as Adam Richman ("Man Finds Food") returns as host. Youngsters vie with adult entrants to impress -- and also square off against -- celebrity chefs. The home cooks could win as much as $100,000 if they endure through all five rounds.
Staying with Jill (guest star Jaime Pressly), newly released from rehab, isn't such a chore for her sponsor Christy and Bonnie (Anna Faris, Allison Janney) in "Crazy Eyes and a Wet Brad Pitt." Her wealth means she has elaborate digs, so the visitors have a better time than they might otherwise. Athlete turned actor Rick Fox also guest stars as Jill's husband. Nate Corddry and Sadie Calvano also star.
Beyond Scared Straight
Deputy Lyle of the Floyd County Jail uses his skills -- and a variety of approaches ranging from coaxing to bullying to comforting -- as he tries to redirect a carjacking gangbanger, a shoplifting party girl, a brutal fighter and a thief who robs old ladies toward more productive futures in the new episode "Floyd, Ga.: Dep. Lyle Lays Down the Law."
It's not necessarily wise to test a relationship in its early stages, as Joss (Jes Macallan) learns firsthand in the new episode "Into the Woods." She oversteps in pushing boundaries with Harry (Brett Tucker). April (Rochelle Aytes) gets lessons from an unexpected, and not unappealing, source during Lucy's (guest star Corinne Massiah) school camping trip. Calista (Jennifer Esposito) has reason to question falling back under Luca's (guest star Noam Jenkins) spell.
The Vampire Diaries
What transpires for Elena in "I'm Thinking of You All the While" is pretty definitive: This was founding cast member Nina Dobrev's last episode of the series. Her character is imperiled by a surprise guest at the wedding of Alaric and Jo (Matt Davis, guest star Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). Instead of leaving town, Bonnie (Kat Graham) decides to stand and deliver. Stefan and Caroline (Paul Wesley, Candice Accola) reach a critical point.
A bomb left in his car makes Ethan (Matt Dillon) realize he may have learned too much about the town in the new episode "Betrayal." He wonders if one or more of the locals in whom he placed his trust could be bent on eliminating him. Kate and Harold (Carla Gugino, Reed Diamond) meet with Nurse Pam (Melissa Leo) on fertility-related matters. Ben and Amy (Charlie Tahan, guest star Sarah Jeffery) get closer. Terrence Howard and Toby Jones also star.
Given the Los Angeles setting of this drama, it's likely that Hollywood would play into it -- and it does, in a homicidal way, in the new episode "Cease to Resist." A celebrity is murdered, but a studio's executives try to prevent Hodiak (David Duchovny) from solving the crime. Emma and Sadie (Emma Dumont, Ambyr Childers) learn more about Manson (Gethin Anthony) from someone who's a part of his history. Grey Damon and Claire Holt also star.
