I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but I actually had trouble finding some things to watch a couple of nights this week—the problem was most of the stuff I watch didn’t start until 10pm. Why can’t they do a better job of spreading my shows out across the night?! I’m not going to say I wish there was more on, because that wish will definitely come true soon—I’ll gladly take a few slow nights to rest up before the summer TV madness that is to come!
Last week, Rookie Blue returned for the fourth season. Andy and Nick were just finishing up their six-month undercover operation, and we learned that the two had hooked up in the process. When the operation hit a snag, Andy called Sam to come in and save the day, reuniting the two who hadn’t had any contact since the operation began. Afterwards, Andy discovered that Sam had moved on while she was away and was now dating the new training officer, Marlo. Meanwhile, Diaz had moved his son and girlfriend into the apartment with Dov, but when he received a letter telling him he could transfer to his hometown department, he had a new decision to make.
I really enjoyed the action-packed premiere, and I was beyond thrilled to see that Sam and Andy had remained broken up and that there might be a chance (albeit slim) of one or both of them moving on. It is probably the unpopular opinion, but I really wished they had killed off Sam at the end of season two—I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t like him. Sadly, I have a feeling the writers’ ultimate goal is to have Sam and Andy end up together, so in the meantime, I’ll just savor this separation. There was no sign of Luke last week—I really liked him and Andy together in the first season (before the writers did a 180 and turned him into a cheating dirtbag). Last season, Luke seemed to be redeeming himself, so I still hold out hope (no matter how futile) for those two to get back together. I’m having flashbacks of Dawson’s Creek, where I seemed to be the only person who thought Joey should have ended up with Dawson!
On tonight’s episode, “Homecoming,” Andy investigates a bank robbery with Swarek. Meanwhile, Nick and Gail help a distraught woman; and Frank drops a bombshell on Noelle.
To see what news Frank gives Noelle, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Save Me, Hannibal, Hell’s Kitchen, Does Someone Have to Go?, Chopped, Giving You the Business, Men at Work, and Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

I am loving this season of Men at Work just as much as I loved the first. The guys are just too funny—separately and apart—and the chemistry between them all is sharp and just so much fun. Last week, we met Tyler’s new girlfriend (of several weeks), Rachel, who actually turned out to be the woman that Milo tried to hook up with after breaking up with his long-time girlfriend at the beginning of the series, but when he…failed, Gibbs stepped in and had a threesome with her and a friend. When Tyler found that out, all he could picture when he saw Rachel in her lingerie was Gibbs wearing said lingerie. It was hysterical as it escalated to hearing his voice instead of hers. Then at the end, they all played a trick on him by all coming out in that same piece of lingerie once he’d gotten past the mental block he was having. I laughed and laughed.
On tonight’s episode, “Long Distance Tyler,” Milo and Gibbs have a date-off with a beautiful woman (guest star Jessica Szohr). Tyler and Rachel try to stick together through the hassles of a long-distance relationship. Neal and Amy suffer the consequences of allowing Tyler to use their apartment as a rendezvous location.
See if you find it as amusing as I do tonight on TBS at 10/9c.
Tonight is an all-new Hell’s Kitchen, and despite FOX playing hacky sack with its time slot, it’s still of the shows I never miss. Last week, we watched as Nedra joined the blue team, much to the boys’ displeasure, and in the end, it proved to be for good reason. Nedra was a hot mess last week, from the beginning of the challenge straight through to dinner service. She earned being eliminated last week.
On tonight’s episode, “7 Chefs Compete,” Ramsay tests the chefs’ palates with a blind taste test; Ramsay presents an unexpected challenge in order to determine who gets immunity.
To see who the kitchen proves too hot for, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching Rookie Blue, Chopped, and Wipeout.
In its sixth season, Wipeout is still a show I can thoroughly enjoy, but only during the summer when not too much is on. Still, the show is sometimes wearing me down, as the courses are obviously designed for a hundred percent wipeout, and that bugs me. I understand it makes for good TV, but I would like to see contestants get to the qualifier without wiping out once in a while.
On tonight’s episode, “Third Shift,” teams of bosses and employees compete in a chance to win the grand prize of $50.000.
Find out who wins and in which team the employees takes his revenge on the boss on ABC at 8/7c.
Sadly, this is all I’ll be watching, so I’ll be catching up on some shows I still have to watch.

The Mike & Molly season finale was put off because of the tornadoes in Oklahoma. Now, 10 days later, they decided to air it. This season was all about Mike & Molly trying to have a baby and failing. The doctor ruled out a physical problem with either of them, so they were on pins and needles waiting to see if they would be able to get pregnant. Meanwhile, trying to save up enough money in case they needed to do in vitro, Mike invested money with Vince into ostriches. Jim Beaver (best known as Bobby on Supernatural) guest starred as Vince’s redneck, hillbilly friend Dwight. The friendship & friendly put-downs between the two were hysterical.
On tonight’s finale, “Windy City,” Mike and Carl get stuck working at the Renaissance Faire after their boss, Patrick, gets dumped by Mike’s mother. Later, as a tornado descends on Chicago, Mike and Molly each confess important news to each other. Gerald McRaney guest stars as Police Captain Patrick Murphy, Mike’s boss. Jim Beaver guest stars as Dwight.
See what news both Mike & Molly have to share tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Chopped, Motive, Pawn Star$, & Renovation Raiders.
