crowded315smallTonight, NBC kicks off its new family sitcom, Crowded, with back-to-back episodes. The series finds empty nesters Mike (Patrick Warburton, Rules of Engagement) and Martina Moore (Carrie Preston, True Blood, The Good Wife) finally starting to enjoy their freedom, when their daughters suddenly want to move back in. Bookish Shea (Miranda Cosgrove, iCarly) was the victim of a layoff and can no longer afford to live on her own, while wild child Stella (Mia Serafino, Shameless) is having problems with her boyfriend. And to make matters worse, Mike’s father Bob (Stacy Keach, NCIS: NOLA) and stepmother Alice (Carlease Burke, Switched at Birth) have cancelled their plans to spend their golden years in Florida now that their grandkids are going to be around.

I watched tonight’s first episode and found it to be a pretty standard family sitcom. However, I was surprised that this was an NBC series, because it felt a lot like one of those ABC Friday comedies, though maybe slightly more adult in the humor. However, since the series comes from executive producers Suzanne Martin, Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner, and James Burrows, who have a long history with NBC, that explains it. The cast is great, and I like the premise of the series, so I look forward to checking out tonight’s second episode to see more of what the weekly series is going to be like.

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” Shea and Stella upend their parents’ plans when they move back home after college. Then in tonight’s second episode, “Present Tense,” Mike and Martina hope to re-spark their sex life, which has been dormant since the Stella and Shea moved home. Stella, meanwhile, helps Shea with a dating app.

Meet the newest TV family tonight on NBC at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Grinder, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Chrisley Knows Best, Awkward., and Faking It.

rizzoliisles315smallLast week’s Rizzoli & Isles was a minefield, literally! A thumb that was found led police to a body. A man had died from traumatic limb loss (basically, his limbs had been blown off). Shortly after they got there, Korsak realized they were standing in a minefield. The bomb squad came and got them out one by one, until it came to Korsak, who finally told them he was standing on one so he couldn’t move. They did a crazy rescue with some crazy material Maura was able to get that helped shield him, and then they pulled him off the bomb as it exploded. It turned out that the victim’s partner killed him because the victim wanted to get back to doing good works, rather than doing whatever they could to make money.

Then there were the personal stories… When Korsak told Kiki about the bomb scare, she said she needed time. He thought she was going to break it off with him, but in reality, she just needed a bit of time to take it all in, and the wedding is going forward without a problem. And Ron came to Angela and said he had to go to Paris for work and wanted her to go with him. At first, she seemed ready to say no, that she couldn’t just drop everything and leave the country, but then Korsak convinced her to live for the moment, and she decided to go.

Finally, we’ve been inching closer and closer to finding Jane’s stalker on Rizzoli & Isles. Last week, they figured out that it was a woman Jane went to the police academy with. They grabbed up her cousin, but so far, the stalker was still in the wind. Since tonight’s the season finale, I can only imagine that she’ll be caught before the end of the episode!

On tonight’s episode, “A Shot in the Dark,” when a State Trooper is killed in Maine, the getaway car is traced back to the mastermind of the attacks on Jane. The team must now unravel the mystery of the mastermind’s obsession with Jane in order to keep her safe and turn the hunter into the hunted. Meanwhile, Korsak prepares to tie the knot with Kiki.

See if the team can catch the stalker tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS 300th episode(!), The Real O’Neals, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, NCIS: NOLA, Chopped, & Crowded.

ncisnola315smallI have really fallen in love with NCIS: NOLA, especially the great writing, which keeps me coming back episode after episode. On the last new episode, we watched as they solved a murder of a Navy officer who died while on air with the radio station. It was an interesting case that again had us drawn in with the adorable cast. Speaking of adorable cast… Pride’s daughter came home to tell him that she was going to drop out of the music program because she needed to find her own way. He wasn’t sure how to handle it, but it’s clear no matter what she does, he’ll always be proud of her. All of this aside, I have to be honest that I enjoy LaSalle a lot. I’ve found him adorable since his days on Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, and I still find him sexy now. And a sexy cast is always a plus.

On tonight’s episode, “If It Bleeds, It Leads,” NCIS Special Agent Brody believes that a sailor hit by a party bus in the French Quarter is connected to her sister’s death after the NCIS team discovers similarities between the two. Also, the team prepares for St. Patrick’s Day festivities in New Orleans.

To find out if Brody is right about the connection to her sister, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Crowded, and Of Kings and Prophets.
