I’m planning on watching The Mentalist, New Girl and Keeping Up With The Kardashians

On TV2 tonight, GCB gets bumped to 9.30pm to make way for the new season of The Mentalist at 8.30pm. Last season’s cliffhanger was a bit of a heart-stopper, as Thomas Jane shot Red John…or was he Red John?

This season opens with Jane in jail, having to prove that the man he shot really was Red John. Plus, Lisbon tries to convince Van Pelt to get counselling.
