Tonight, the TBS comedy, The Detour, returns for a second season. The first season was very similar to National Lampoon’s Vacation – the Parker family was on a road trip to Florida under the guise of a family vacation, but patriarch Nate was really on a mission to expose his employer’s deadly plans. Everything that could have gone wrong during the trip did go wrong…and so much more! Nate ended up missing his whistle-blowing opportunity, but it actually worked out for the better, as he was wrong and would have just ended up looking like a fool. However, Nate did learn that partner Robin had some major secret that she was hiding, and twins Delilah and Jared learned that their parents weren’t actually married.

The second season picks up a short time later. Nate is still out of a job, and the family is living in a trailer park in Syracuse. However, a new job opportunity in New York City will send the family on a whole new series of misadventures and Robin to a city that holds many secrets she’s been trying to hide. As I watched the first half of tonight’s double-episode premiere, I was quickly reminded of how much I missed this show! I was laughing out loud throughout. I just love this show’s irreverent humor that doesn’t worry about being politically correct. I am so excited to see what craziness awaits the Parkers in New York City!

On tonight’s first episode, “The City,” Nate is offered a new job in New York City, triggering the family’s move from Syracuse to the Big Apple. Then, in “The Club,” Robin’s ex lures her back to her wild side by visiting a club from their past, sparking Nate’s jealousy in the process. Meanwhile, the kids meet Nate’s new boss.

Find out how the move to NYC goes for the Parkers tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, This Is Us, New Girl, The Mick, Bones, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Switched at Birth, Face Off, Teachers, and Chrisley Knows Best.

The Mick has turned out to be one of my favorite new comedies this season. Last week, Chip got caught with a lewd photo on his phone and had to go in front of the school’s honor-board. Sabrina was overseeing the trial and wasn’t going to let her brother get off easy. Chuck refused to give the names of the students who sent the photo…until he realized that the photo he had pleasured himself to was of his sister. After puking several times, he immediately gave up the names. Meanwhile, Mickey had a scared-straight speech with Ben about what happens to “rats,” so when he witnessed a man keying the family’s expensive car, he refused to tell Alba what he knew.

This show is so hilarious. Every week I find myself laughing out loud. The writing also seems to be getting better each week, as the writers find new and clever ways to intersect the various story lines and pair up the characters. I can’t wait to see what crazy, messed-up antics the family gets up to tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Mess,” Mickey dumps the “cool aunt” persona and decides to lay down the law when the kids ignore her attempts at disciplining them.

See how Mickey stands up to the kids tonight on FOX at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, Bones, Imposters, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Face Off, and Teachers.

I hate (or love… It’s kind of a love/hate relationship!) when shows make me feel bad for the killer. That’s what last week’s Bones did. A young man who tutored privileged high school kids was killed, and it seemed like Booth and Bones had more suspects than they could shake a stick at. From the head of the school to the overbearing parents to the dead guy’s roommate… But in the end, it was one of the students who killed him. The boy thought the tutor was his friend, that he liked him (in a friend way, not a romantic way). But the tutor decided to quit and told the kid that he was nothing more than a paycheck for him. The kid (who had one of those very overbearing parents who pushed and pushed him about getting perfect grades and getting into the perfect – to her – school) took it badly and snapped, killing him. My favorite part of the case was Aubrey getting…stuff dropped on him at the crime scene. It happens to them all at least once! On the personal front, Brennan freaked out when she heard the audiobook version of her latest book, and she decided she would record it herself. Unfortunately, that didn’t go as planned, so she decided that she’d done her part in writing it and she wouldn’t worry about the audio part. (Thankfully, since she was horrible at it. LOL)

I always love it when Bones goes to a fun scenario to investigate a murder. Usually they’re undercover in some way (which I LOVE seeing), but not always. We’ve seen them at a shooting competition, in Vegas, at a circus, dancing, at a couples’ retreat… So tonight, they once again go to a fun new place to investigate. I don’t know if they’re going to be undercover, but even if they aren’t, it should be a lot of fun!

On tonight’s episode, “The Flaw in the Saw,” the dismembered body of successful golfer-turned-lumberjack Phyllis Paul brings the squints to the Lumber Sports Regional Championships. At this competition, Booth and Brennan discover numerous secrets that could have resulted in Phyllis’s murder, including an affair with a married rival. Meanwhile, Hodgins secretly analyzes the bacteria on the bone of a prior victim that he believes will exonerate the murderer, Zack Addy (guest star Eric Millegan). David Koechner (The Goldbergs, The Office, Anchorman) also guest stars.

Find out who killed the golfing lumberjack tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

After a 15-month hiatus, Switched at Birth finally returns tonight to kick of the show’s fifth and final season on Freeform. When we last left off, Regina’s love Eric was wanted for a felony, so he fled with his son, leaving Regina once again lonely and alone. Bay was upset to learn that Travis secretly paid an art gallery to give her an art show but was left speechless when Travis kissed her and declared his feelings for her. Daphne and Mingo decided to take a break from one another for the summer as Daphne contemplated a summer internship assisting deaf children in China. John and Kathryn found a buyer for the car wash, but John was upset to learn that Kathryn had resorted to flirtation in order to knock down the price. And Lily went into labor, giving birth to Carlton Summers Kennish. The season finale then jumped ahead ten months to find Bay working as a tattoo artist in China when she receives an urgent call from Daphne, who is working in a nearby clinic, and Bay exclaims that they have to go home.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this final chapter plays out. What were Bay and Daphne doing in China, and what was said on that phone call that has them rushing back home? What is the status of John and Kathryn’s rocky marriage? Will Regina ever find love again? And what about Travis and Mingo? Have they moved on, or are they awaiting the girls’ return?

On tonight’s premiere, “The Call,” Daphne and Bay receive an emergency phone call while in China and return home, where Daphne readjusts to campus life and Bay feels conflicted about her feelings for Emmett. Meanwhile, Kathryn and John argue about her job; and Regina feels guilty about a secret romance.

Find out what sends Daphne and Bay home tonight on Freeform at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, The Mick, Bones, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Face Off, and Teachers.

It’s here, it’s here! Tonight is the season premiere of Bones. It’s been SIX long months since the previous season finale. The FBI & Squints were once again on the trail of the Puppeteer, the serial killer who lived with his victims’ bodies before disposing of them. It seemed like Bones was a target, and sure enough, in the end, she was kidnapped by none other than…ZACK! So is Zack the killer? How did he get out of the institution he’s been in for years? Where does he have Bones, and why? We’ll get those answers tonight.

This is the final season of the show, so there’s bound to be a lot of surprises. Hopefully we’ll see some great guest stars and get some great wrap-ups for our favorite characters. I’ve seen the first few episodes, and I know it’s off to a great start!

On tonight’s episode, “The Hope in the Horror,” Booth and the lab team desperately search for Brennan after she’s kidnapped by her former assistant, Zack Addy.

See if they can find Bones tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, Chicago Fire, MasterChef Canada, Chicago PD, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
