Mia, the daughter of Hank's ex's then-fiancé, has always been a cloud of trouble for Hank. After Hank slept with her — unaware that she was 16 at the time — she virtually blackmailed him by stealing the first novel he'd written in years and publishing it as her own. So what brings Mia back to L.A. now, after being M.I.A. all season?
The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory was Monday's top-rated show, posting the biggest number of overall viewers in the series' history.

Lauren Velez, Dexter
When it comes to love, Dexter's Maria LaGuerta can't seem to catch a break. First, her ex-lover was killed in Season 2, then another old flame turned out to be a murderer in Season 3. And now that she's finally found love with Sgt. Batista, she's unable to be with him with him because the boss won't allow their interoffice relationship.

Californication's Hank Moody (David Duchovny) has really done it this time.
The charming lothario was already in deep: He's bedded both his teaching assistant (Diane Farr) and a student (Eva Amurri), and he's got the prim-and-proper dean's wife (Embeth Davidtz) all hot and bothered. But now, Hank's soulmate and mother of his child, Karen (Natascha McElhone), has returned from New York, sending Professor Moody into female frenzy.
