Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
CBS’s new “when animals attack” drama, Zoo, has wasted no time getting to the action, suspense, and animal craziness. Last week, we saw that the animal phenomenon is not limited to cats and that the animals are actually premeditating and planning out their murderous acts. In Africa, Jackson and Captain Kavimba found Abraham’s body in the tree and discovered that the lions had not fatally wounded him — they were sending a message to the humans. And back in LA, Jamie and Mitch operated on a lion and discovered that a chemical in the animals may be allowing them to communicate with one another. Meanwhile, in Slovenia, a man was lured into an alley by the family dog, only to be surrounded by a bunch of the dog’s vicious pals, who tore the man apart. The dog then went back to the man’s hotel room, knocked on the door, and pretended like nothing happened when the man’s wife let him in.
What is causing the animals to rise up against the humans, and does their dangerous form of communication extend across species? Can these people find a way to stop the animals before they wipe out the entire human population? I really enjoyed the original James Patterson novel, but this series is completely different and only similar in the general concept — the characters and reasons for the dangerous animal behavior have all been changed. So it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out.
This past weekend, I got a chance to talk with the executive producers of the series, as well as two of the stars, in the CBS press room at the San Diego Comic-Con. You can find these interviews at NoReruns.net. (I had to ask them if that dog was really supposed to have knocked on the hotel room door!)
On tonight’s episode, “The Silence of the Cicadas,” Jackson flies to Japan with Abraham to recover the rest of his father’s research involving animals; Jamie convinces Mitch to join her when she shows a Louisiana senator their findings on the abnormal behavior of the zoo lions; a shadowy intelligence agent recruits Chloe in Paris; and a death-row inmate escapes from a Mississippi prison during a vicious wolf invasion.
Learn more about why the animals are attacking tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Hollywood Game Night, Tyrant, Clipped, Chrisley Knows Best, Royal Pains, Scream, and Another Period.

Rizzoli & Isles is still my favorite summer show, one that I wish had more episodes and lasted longer during the year. There’s something about the friendship before Jane & Maura that makes it so enjoyable to watch, and the other characters — Frankie, Angela, Korsak, & Nina — just add to an already strong show. Last week, a body fell out of a refrigerator in the back of a truck, onto the hood of a family’s car…which stopped their arguing. That led Jane & Maura into the art world and the FBI. The funniest part of the episode was Jane scraping the painting at the gallery. Thankfully, it was a forged one, not the real one! That would’ve been one costly mistake! LOL
On tonight’s episode, “Misconduct,” the murder of a crime tech sends shockwaves throughout the team. When suspicions arise that the tech had tampered with evidence for BPD cases, Maura is suspended from her position. Jane is determined to catch the killer and clear the department so Maura can be reinstated.
To see which crime tech is killed and if Jane can find the killer, tune in to TNT at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing 86th Annual Major League Baseball All-Star Game (with 4 KC Royals starters! Woohoo!), America’s Got Talent, Chrisley Knows Best, Little People, Big World, Stitchers, Chopped, Clipped, Royal Pains, & Hollywood Game Night.
