I’m so excited for my pick today. A History Channel original, SIX, starts tonight. The show follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six, whose covert missing is to kill a Taliban leader in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, things go wrong when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists. The show is inspired by real missions (not BASED off of real missions, but inspired by them…), showing what the SEALs do, their personal lives, and the life-and-death decisions they make during their missions. It stars Walton Goggins (Justified, Vice Principals), Barry Sloane (Revenge), Kyle Schmid (Copper), Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos), Edwin Hodge (Chicago Fire), Dominic Adams (Devious Maids), Brianne Davis (Jarhead), Nadine Velazquez (Flight, My Name is Earl), Jaylen Moore (Homeland), Donny Boaz (The Great Debators), and Nondumiso Tembe (True Blood).

Aside from a great cast (I always love seeing Walton Goggins, who was so fantastic as Boyd Crowder in Justified, as well as Edwin Hodge, who’s been on a number of great shows.), I love the premise. The show promises a lot of action, a lot of heart… It reminds me a bit of The Unit, which is one of my all-time favorite shows. Hopefully it’ll live up to my expectations!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six troop leader Rip Taggart makes a questionable decision while on a mission in Afghanistan; two years later, Rip is captured by Boko Haram, and it’s up to his former SEAL Team Six brothers to locate and rescue him.

Learn what questionable decision Rip makes tonight on History Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Cooks vs Cons, Law & Order: SVU, black-ish, Chicago PD, & Match Game.

Kyle’s Choice

ABC’s Match Game reboot is the perfect show to follow the network’s hilarious Wednesday night comedy block. This new version of the classic game show successfully recaptures all of the fun, off-color humor and celebrity interactions of the original. Alec Baldwin is a terrific host. I’m always impressed by his improv ability – he comes up with some amazing retorts and one-liners while poking fun at the contestants and trading barbs with the celebrity panel. Last week they had one of the stupidest contestants who, instead of giving the obvious innuendo answer, would give a realistic answer that had no chance of getting matches. However, part of the fun was watching Alec make fun of the contestant, the celebrity reactions to her answers, and the shocking random match or two she actually managed to get.

On tonight’s episode, the celebrity panelists include Andy Richter, Bellamy Young, Caroline Rhea, Judy Greer, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Skylar Astin.

Find out who matches tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, Speechless, black-ish, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Frequency, SIX, Workaholics, Jeff & Some Aliens, Man Seeking Woman, and Incorporated.
