In the vast world that is our TV choices each day, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed hopes to make your life a bit easier. Each day we’ll curate the top three shows and episodes we think you should tune in to.

For Monday, our three to see are:

Weeds, Showtime, 10 p.m.

Our favorite unlucky in love, drug-dealing mom, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) is back and she’s in a New York state of mind. After serving three years in prison, she gets paroled to serve the rest of her time in a halfway house and old habits die hard (wink). The guys have moved on with their lives in Denmark, but it won’t take long before they find out mom’s free again.

Platinum Hit, Bravo, 10 p.m.

The dramatic contestants competing in this songwriting competition don’t always sound so great, but it is enlightening to hear what the judges think will be a “hit or miss.”

The Big C, Showtime, 10:30 p.m.

It’s a girls’ night out on Showtime with Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney) returning with a new attitude. Now that others know about her cancer, Cathy is ready to address it head on. A new oncologist (played by MASH’s Alan Alda) may be able to give her some much-needed time.
