We’re at the end of season 10 of The Big Bang Theory. It’s been a big year for the characters, from their relationships to the work the boys did for the military. One big change was Sheldon moving out of the apartment and living with Amy across the hall in Penny’s old place. Unfortunately, now Sheldon is on his own for the summer, since last week, Amy left to go to Princeton for a position as a visiting researcher. I was amazed at how maturely Sheldon handled it. Amy was excited to go but was reluctant about leaving him, but together they decided it was something she couldn’t pass up. Of course, we’ll see how well that works out when he’s either living on his own or shacking up with Leonard and Penny again!

Also last week, Sheldon, Leonard, and Howard showed up at the lab, only to find it completely empty. The military had gotten what they wanted from the boys and taken control of the project with no warning. My favorite part of the episode, though, had to be when they got back to the apartment building, walked into an empty apartment, and thought they’d been wiped out completely, that the military was erasing their lives. Come to find out they were just on the wrong floor. Too funny that the apartment looked exactly like theirs without stuff in it! The whole season’s been fun, and I’m sad to see it end, but we have a lot more of the show coming over the next couple of years, so there’s something to look forward to!

On tonight’s episode, “The Long Distance Dissonance,” the gang is concerned when Sheldon’s former admirer, Dr. Ramona Nowitzki (guest star Riki Lindhome), resurfaces while Amy is away at Princeton.

Find out how Sheldon reacts to Ramon’s reappearance tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, Chicago Med, Beat Bobby Flay, Farmers’ Market Flip, & Impractical Jokers.

Tonight, the second season of black-ish comes to an end. Last week Dre had an emotional time dropping Zoey off at college for her two-day pre-college orientation, and what followed was a backdoor pilot for a fun potential spin-off series. Minutes after she arrived, Zoey met and befriended Miriam, the only other seemingly sane person there. She also discovered that Charlie was moonlighting as an adjunct marketing professor at the college. As she and Miriam explored the campus, Zoey met and fell in love with Aaron, a Black Student Union representative who was fighting to protect the all-black dorm from being shut down by the school’s administrators. Zoey learned that due to Dre’s obsession with the McRib, she did not have any housing for the upcoming semester, but her speech to the administrators about keeping the segregated dorms earned her the position of cultural liaison to the administer’s office, which came with housing.

I really enjoyed last week’s backdoor pilot, and I would totally watch that series. It will be interesting to see if ABC announces it as part of their new lineup at next week’s Upfronts. The potential series has a similar feeling to the original, with Zoey doing the narration like Dre does, and her position at the school is not unlike her father’s role at his work. Tonight we return to the rest of the family for the show’s season finale. What adventures await the Johnsons, and is tonight the night the latest addition to the family arrives?

On tonight’s finale, “Sprinkles,” Dre throws Bow’s baby shower and wants it to be unforgettable, but his plans are put on hold when Bow stops by the OB/GYN with a headache and discovers she is having complications.

See if everything works out okay for Bow and the baby tonight on ABC at 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Fargo, and Archer.

I’ve really enjoyed the first season of Superior Donuts. Judd Hirsch is always great, and he has a lot of chemistry with Jermaine Fowler, who plays Franco. The rest of the cast is a lot of fun too. The always racist Fawz might be my favorite character, though. He’s so wrong it’s hysterical. Last week, Franco decided he should show his art. He tried to get into a real gallery, but the gallery owner said no way, so the gang rallied and turned the donut shop into a gallery to show just Franco’s art. The gallery owner even came and gave Franco some advice, telling him he had a long way to go but it would be worth it for him to continue. Unfortunately, Arthur took it upon himself to invite Franco’s father, who always said pursuing his art wasn’t worth the time. In the end, his father still isn’t supportive of his art, but Franco stood up to him and said that was fine. He wouldn’t continue his art without his father’s support since he had the support of Arthur and all his friends there at the donut shop.

Like I said, I really loved the entire season and all the characters. I’m sad tonight is the season finale, but thank goodness it’s been renewed for another season already, so I don’t have to worry about whether or not it’s coming back!

On tonight’s episode, “Secrets and Spies,” when Maya momentarily leaves her open laptop unattended, the gang discovers she’s been studying them all year for her dissertation. Also, Franco and Randy become determined to learn the truth about where a tight-lipped Arthur really spends each Sunday.

Find out where Arthur’s been going on Sundays tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kevin Can Wait, Kids BBQ Championship, Man With a Plan, The Great Indoors, Help My Yelp, & Scorpion.

Tonight, the third season of The Last Man on Earth comes to a close on FOX with a special 1-hour finale. Last week, the show took a sudden and unexpected leap forward in time, and Tandy comically and casually mentioned all of the “boring” stuff viewers missed during those 6 months. Melissa was now sane again and ready to walk down the aisle with Todd. Meanwhile, Jasper was talking up a storm, Erica and Gail were a couple, and Erica’s and Carol’s pregnancies had advanced tremendously. And the episode ended with Erica’s water breaking.

Will these untrained survivors be able to deliver the baby successfully, or will Erica face the same fate as her baby’s father? Will Carol also give birth before the end of tonight’s finale? And will we finally see the return of Kristen Wiig’s character? (I really hope so. She’s so hilarious!) The series creators already warned that this season finale was not written as a series finale, so we’ll likely be left with yet another twist/cliffhanger, so I really hope we hear of some good renewal news from FOX soon!

On tonight’s season finale, “When the Going Gets Tough; Nature’s Horchata,” the long-term consequences of surviving an apocalyptic event start to have a major impact on the group as their daily lives are turned upside down.

See how the season (series?) ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, Into the Badlands, The Leftovers, Silicon Valley, Veep, and American Gods.

Tonight is the season finale of Blue Bloods, and I am both excited and sad. It has been a great season overall, but I was really hoping we would have seen more relationship growth between Jamie and Eddie by now. Hopefully the writers get their game together next season, because my shipper dreams are dying.

On last week’s episode, Erin discovered someone from her office stole evidence for her case and set out to prove it. Eventually, she did get Gary to admit he did it, and her case was saved. Elsewhere, Danny had to learn to play well with two Russian officers when they fell into a case together involving a KGB agent who opened up fire in a restaurant after a woman refused to go back to Russia with him. They solved the case, and Danny was beyond ready to send those Russian officers back before they drove him even crazier.

On tonight’s episode, “The Thin Blue Line,” when Danny intercepts a shipment of several million dollars that was heading to a drug cartel in Mexico, he becomes a target when they come back for revenge. Also, Jamie works independently to track down a serial killer who preys on the elderly, and Mayor Poole confides in Frank that he plans to retire.

To see how Jamie does solo, tune in to CBS 10/9c.
