It’s hard to believe that we are almost halfway through September already, although I am really enjoying the cooler fall temperatures. The cooler temperatures and leaves falling can only mean one thing: new fall TV!! Let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to get you ready for a night of new television.
MasterChef has been very interesting this season with a few home cooks that I never imagined lasting staying until the end. Last week, we watched as Christian laid his heart on the line to stay, but he didn’t make it and was sent home. Then we saw Cutter battle to stay in the competition, and unfortunately, he too was sent home. Now we are left with Leslie, Courtney, and Elizabeth—out of the three, I definitely want Elizabeth to win. Here’s the thing… Courtney and Leslie both have terrible personalities, and I believe they would throw their own mother in front of a bus if it got them the win. Elizabeth is actually a great cook but also a good person, and whether that’s important to you or not, I need to feel like the winner deserves it on all levels.
On tonight’s two-part finale, “Top 3 Compete/Winner Chosen,” the three remaining contestants, with a little help from a few other home cooks, will create dishes for a judging panel of renowned chefs representing all 50 states. The home cook with the most number of votes will move on in the competition, while the remaining two home cooks will face the pressure test, during which they must complete three classic American desserts. The home cook with the best desserts will move on to the finals. Later, in the final challenge in the MasterChef kitchen, the top two home cooks will have one last chance to prove to the judges that they deserve the MasterChef title. After evaluation of the final dishes, the judges will reveal America’s next MasterChef, and the deserving home cook will walk away with a trophy, a book deal, and the $250,000 grand prize.
To see who cooks their way into the top spot, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching American Ninja Warrior: USA vs the World and Dancing with the Stars.

All I needed to know about tonight’s Syfy Original Movie High Moon was that it comes from Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Hannibal)—that alone was enough to get me to set it to record on my TiVo. Then I watched the trailer and was thrilled to see Fuller’s stunning visual style represented. While the trailer doesn’t really give any clues as to the plot of the film, Syfy describes it as “A group arrives on the moon and realizes they’ve got company…and they DON’T come in peace.” The cast includes Jonathan Tucker (Parenthood), Chris Diamantopoulos (Episodes), Jake Sandvig (Rush), Dana Davis (Franklin & Bash), and Charity Wakefield (Mockingbird Lane).
I like that Syfy is adding films like this to their Original Movies roster, allowing us to see new projects from such accomplished folks like Bryan Fuller and not just their tried and true low-budget monster mash-up movies (though those can be fun). High Moon looks and sounds exciting—I can’t wait to check it out tonight!
Check out the alientastic fun tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Under the Dome, MasterChef, and Rewrapped.
