There’s a fun new show starting tonight on FOX, called My Kitchen Rules. Based on the No. 1 show of the same name in Australia, it pits five celebrity duos against one another in the kitchen. The duos will take turns hosting dinner parties, where they must cook and serve an appetizer and an entrée. The other duos, along with chefs/judges Curtis Stone and Cat Cora, will score the food on a scale of 1-10, with the judges’ scores given more weight. The celebrity duo with the lowest score each round will be eliminated. The duos include: Lance Bass & his mother Diane, brother & sister Brandy & Ray J Norwood, Andrew Dice Clay & his wife Valerie, Naomi Judd & her husband, and friends Brandi Glanville and Dean Sheremet.

I’ve actually seen the first handful of episodes, and while the food/cooking part is fun enough, the interaction between the duos is what makes the show really worth watching. I will say that going in, I thought for sure I would like two of the duos a lot, be okay with two, and dislike one. In a weird turn of events, I hated the two I thought I’d like, as well as one of the two I thought I’d be okay with, and I really liked the other I thought I’d be okay with, as well as the one I thought I’d hate! So color me surprised. It’s a fun show. Not one you have to think a lot about, but it’s fun to see into these celebrities lives and learn a bit more about what they seem to be really like.

On tonight’s episode, “Brandy & Ray J, Lance Bass Dinner Parties,” Musicians – and siblings – Brandy and Ray J prepare a challenging meal; musician & TV host Lance Bass and his mother prepare a Southern feast.

Find out who can cook and who can’t tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great American Baking Show, Hell’s Kitchen, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, Top Chef, Beat Bobby Flay, & That Awkward Game Show.

Last week, Superstore returned from hiatus and found the gang taking turns grabbing things from the Lost and Found. Mateo ended up with some gross-looking cargo shorts but guilted Amy into trading him her leather jacket. Amy discovered a large sum of money in one of the pockets of the shorts, and Jonah tried to convince her to use the money to splurge on a spa day for herself. But once everyone else found out about the money, they got Amy to spend it on improvements for the break room – which all had to be returned anyway once the owner of the shorts was found. Meanwhile, Garrett tried to convince Dina (and himself) that their night of sex meant nothing to him.

This show continues to be a lot of fun. I like how the writers are gradually building the romantic relationship between Amy and Jonah while also slowly revealing how broken Amy’s marriage already is, so as to not make Jonah a homewrecker should the pair get together in the future. Dina continues to be one of my favorite characters, and it was a lot of fun seeing her get into Garrett’s head last week, since Garrett is usually the one playing the mind games on others.

On tonight’s episode, “Rebranding,” the store’s brand changes, a development that brings a corporate vice president to the store, and Jonah shares a past with the bigwig. Also, Mateo is shocked to learn about rumors of a relationship involving Jeff, and Dina retaliates against a snitch.

Find out how Jonah shares a past with the corporate VP tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Colony, The Great American Baking Show, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, The Good Place, The Blacklist, My Kitchen Rules, and Top Chef.
