I loved the first season and first half of the second season of To Tell the Truth. I never watched reruns of the original, but I love this new version, hosted by Anthony Anderson – and frankly, by his mother, who sits on the sidelines and interjects her own commentary. LOL The celebrities are usually fun to watch as they try to figure out who is lying and who is telling the truth. The best ones are usually the ones who really get into it. They don’t worry about what they look or sound like – they just let loose and have fun, really get into the spirit of the show.

On tonight’s episode, celebrities Justin Long, Arielle Kebbel, Nikki Glaser, and Kal Penn are presented with a variety of participants with interesting traits, from the only person in the world to bike to the South Pole, to the “Doggy Designer to the Stars,” as well as Usher’s choreographer.

See who is lying and who is telling the truth tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Big Star Little Star, Brother vs Brother, Cutthroat Kitchen, The F Word, Blood Drive, & Lip Sync Battle.

It’s a new reality/game show block on ABC starting tonight, and I couldn’t be more excited. First up is the fourth season premiere of Celebrity Family Feud. My family and I love watching Family Feud. Our favorite hosts are Steve Harvey and, from way back when, Richard Dawson. Thankfully, Steve Harvey is the host of Celebrity Family Feud, because he makes this show fantastic. The celeb families are usually pretty fun too. Tonight’s first game features singer/American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson (along with her friends and family: sister Alyssa, friends Shane and Ashley, and personal assistant Tricia) and comedian Amy Schumer (along with friends and family: sister Kim, friend Kevin, brother Jason, and sister-in-law Cayce). The second game features DWTS winner Bindi Irwin (along with her family: mother Terri, brother Robert, and cousins Daniel and Sara) and actress Chrissy Metz from This Is Us (along with her family: mother Denise and sisters Monica, Morgana, and Abigail). The four of them will compete for their favorite charities.

Following that show is new series Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, which is a little like Shark Tank…but a lot more lively. In each episode, aspiring inventors will go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products, or companies. The audience will vote to determine the winner of each head-to-head battle. In the end, Steve will present the inventors with a major dilemma. One of the inventors is allowed to cash out and walk away for a lesser amount. If they cash out, they can’t win the whole cash prize for that round. If they lost the crowd vote, then they’re better off. If not… Oops? Some of this week’s inventions are an all-in-one picture-hanging tool, vegan soaps, and a holistic soap that helps keep a woman’s private parts fresh and clean. (Wtf? LOL) This show could be a lot of fun, given that Steve Harvey is hosting. The previews I’ve seen have him laughing and having a lot of fun with some of the products. I’m hoping it’ll be really enjoyable!

Finally, The $100,000 Pyramid is back with Michael Strahan hosting. Pyramid is always one of my favorite game shows to watch on reruns, and I loved the first season of this one. So I’m excited to have it back for season 2 tonight. First up it’s actress Leslie Jones vs actor/musician LL Cool J. The second episode features host Tom Bergeron vs singer Jennifer Nettles. Both episodes should be fun to watch, but I think Tom and Jennifer will play a better game. Guess I’ll see if I’m right!

Catch all the fun and excitement tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games & Food Network Star.

Last week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy was explosive…literally. The doctors were working on two people whose car had been driven off a cliff. As Stephanie Edwards tended to the male, Keith, the female regained consciousness and told the doctors that a man had kidnapped her at knife-point and planned to rape her. Bailey sounded the alarm and initiated a lockdown, but Keith held his knife to Edwards’s neck and demanded she help him escape. The pair ended up locked in a corridor along with a young girl, with sealed security doors preventing them from leaving. While Keith was distracted trying to find a way out, Edwards set him on fire. After struggling, he collapsed by a large tank of flammable liquid. Edwards ran to move the body, but there was a huge explosion. Meanwhile, Owen’s sister was found alive in Germany and was going to be transferred to Grey Sloan once she made it stateside. And Alex Karev managed to track down Jo’s abusive husband and imagined various scenarios playing out exacting his revenge, but all of them ended badly for him, and he ultimately did nothing to the man.

Did Edwards survive? Who was harmed and/or killed in that massive explosion? This seems like the way you would end a season, but we still have one more episode, so can we expect to be left with an even bigger shocker tonight? Will we meet some of the firefighters from the newly announced Grey’s spin-off series as they deal with the explosion?

On tonight’s season finale, “Ring of Fire,” the doctors’ lives are at risk after a dangerous patient escapes the hospital room. Meanwhile, Alex makes a hard choice in his relationship with Jo; and Meredith has some big news for Nathan, bringing things to a turning point.

See how the season ends tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior.

Tonight, ABC’s Wednesday comedies have their season finales, and for two of tonight’s shows, that means high school graduations. On The Goldbergs, it’s Erica who’s graduating, and on Modern Family, both Manny and Luke will be finishing up their high school experiences. Both of these series have already been picked up for next season (Modern Family for two more seasons!). I can’t imagine these shows without Erica, Luke, or Manny, but I’m sure the writers will find some way to ensure that these characters’ post-graduation activities cause them to remain close to home. I always enjoy these family comedy season finales, as there’s usually some sort of big family event tied into them. However, I will really miss these shows over the summer!

On tonight’s The Goldbergs finale, “Graduation Day,” graduation day is quickly approaching, and Erica cannot wait to get out of the house, until it dawns on her how much Beverly’s love means to her. Meanwhile, Barry’s plans for himself and Lainey turn to dust; and Dana makes a surprise visit just as Adam and Jackie officially become a couple.

Later, on tonight’s Modern Family finale, “The Graduates,” Javier shows up for Manny’s high-school graduation and takes him out for a wild night of celebration, but Jay must step in to pick up the pieces. Meanwhile, the rest of the Pritchett clan get ready for Luke and Manny’s big day.

To check out the graduations, tune in to ABC at 8/7c & 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Speechless, Downward Dog, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The 100, Fargo, and Archer.

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.
