The Monday Playlist: Monday Mornings, Robin Sparkles, a Hawaiian Remake and More

Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan

Last week, NBC's ludicrous insta-flop Do No Harm (about a Jekyll-Hyde neurosurgeon) pushed TV's medical genre beyond its melodramatic limits. Taking the completely opposite tack, and likely to get a much longer leash (this being cable), TNT's Monday Mornings (Monday, 10/9c) is a surprisingly mellow drama set at a hospital, about doctors forced to face up to their shortcomings, with an ensemble led by (trend alert?) gorgeous and flawed — though decidedly not bonkers — neurosurgeons, played by Jamie Bamber and Jennifer Finnigan.

And you thought Barney and Quinn moved fast.

On Monday's How I Met Your Mother, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) is planning on popping the question to his girlfriend and Robin's office nemesis Patrice (Ellen D. Williams), whom he started dating just two episodes ago. Not if Robin (Cobie Smulders) has anything to do about it, right? The increasingly vindictive Canuck, intervention be damned, is still attempting to do everything she can to derail their relationship.
