It’s been way too long (January 1!) since we last saw Brooklyn Nine-Nine, especially since they ended it on such a huge cliffhanger! Gina was hit by a bus! I’d actually forgotten that until I started watching the screener for this new episode. Then it hit me. (Doh. 😉 ) That was the episode that dealt with the prison break, where Amy and Jake were competing to see who could capture the most – the loser would then move into the winner’s apartment. Even though Jake won, he was very sweet (and honest! LOL) when he conceded that Amy’s place was better and he wanted to move in with her. It was a great moment for them and a fun episode overall…until Gina walked out and was hit by a bus!

Thankfully, the show is back tonight. I really missed it, and I was very happy with the new episode. We get an answer right off as to Gina’s fate (It’s a comedy. She’s a major character. Do you really think she’s going to die?!), and the episode as a whole is just as funny as always, especially because we see not only one character’s ex, but TWO!

On tonight’s episode, “The Audit,” with the crime rate lowered, Brooklyn will be shutting down one of its precincts – permanently. The Nine-Nine is confident they will be evaluated fairly, until the official auditor turns out to be Amy’s ex-boyfriend, Teddy (guest star Kyle Bornheimer). The whole squad then must band together to try to save the precinct. Jama Williamson also guest stars.

To see what Teddy decides about the Nine-Nine, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Prison Break, Trial & Error, Imaginary Mary, & Chopped.

I’m really enjoying Bravo’s delightful new scripted series, Imposters, which follows both a team of con artists working on their latest job, as well as a misfit trio of past marks who have teamed up to find the woman who married each of them and took off with their money. Last week, Maddie went to a cookout at Patrick’s and almost missed an important date with her latest mark, Gary Heller. This caused some concern with the Doctor – the man running the con operation. After Max confirmed that Heller stole $2M from the Doctor, the mysterious man in charge told Max that he would be sending Lenny Cohen to take care of Maddie’s distraction. Meanwhile, Ezra, Richie, and Jules compared their stories to try to figure out where Maddie might be. They discovered that the similarities in the lies she told each of them pointed to Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and so that is their next stop in the hunt for Maddie.

This show is so much fun. I’m especially enjoying the comedic misadventures of the scorned lovers who have teamed up to find the woman who conned them and how they’re becoming con artists themselves as they try to obtain the money to fund their quest for revenge. Who is this Lenny Cohen, and does she plan to kill Patrick to keep Maddie on target? How is Maddie going to react when she hears that the Doctor has sent someone after Patrick? Who is this mysterious Doctor, what does he want, and what leverage does he have on Max, Sally, and Maddie to keep them working for him? Will our trio manage to track down Maddie, or will they find yet another conned spouse at their next location? I’m enjoying this show so much. I can’t wait to see what happens tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Cohen. Lenny Cohen.,” Ezra, Richard, and Jules visit Maddie’s parents. Meanwhile, Sally makes a discovery with dangerous consequences, and Maddie inches closer to Patrick as Lenny Cohen (Uma Thurman) arrives to set things straight.

To see if Lenny takes care of Patrick, tune in to Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, New Girl, The Mick, The Flash, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Stranded with a Million Dollars, Face Off, The Detour, Teachers, and Chrisley Knows Best.

NBC’s Superstore is always one of the highlights of my Thursday night TV watching. Last week it was Valentine’s Day at Cloud 9, and Amy and Glenn tried to play matchmaker for Myrtle, but their attempts to set her up with another elderly employee resulted in a sexual harassment investigation. Meanwhile, Garrett learned about Mateo’s secret relationship with Jeff and tried to push his jealousy over Sandra’s pretend relationship to the boiling point. And Jonah went undercover to help Dina catch a shoplifter, but he ended up falling for his mark. So Dina made sure to burn that potential relationship to the ground by pretending that Jonah was the deadbeat father to her children. But in the end, Jonah was back to joking and having a good time with Amy as the two cleared the store of its Valentine’s Day decorations.

Earlier this week, NBC announced the wonderful news that Superstore had been picked up for a third season. This series just keeps getting funnier and funnier – this ensemble cast just works so well together and has really found their groove. When I was watching the show last week, I couldn’t help but be reminded of The Office, when that show was really firing on all cylinders. I’m so happy there are plenty more crazy adventures to come for the Cloud 9 crew.

On tonight’s episode, “Super Hot Store,” angry tensions magnify when the store’s thermostat breaks, leaving the staffers miserably hot inside Cloud 9. Meanwhile, Dina and Garrett find a way to pass the time, and Cheyenne helps Glenn through an existential crisis as he tries to fix the heater.

See how Dina and Garrett occupy themselves tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Training Day, Powerless, The Blacklist, MasterChef Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

topchef2016smallIt took me a good handful of seasons to start watching Top Chef, but I haven’t missed any episode since, which means I’m excited that it’s back tonight for the start of season 14! This season starts off in Charleston, South Carolina, where eight new chefs join eight returning chefs to compete for the grand prize of $125,000 and the title of Top Chef. This season’s new chefs come from all over, from Portland, Oregon, to Florida and New York City. The returning chefs feature some big names, especially if you’re a fan of this show: Sam Talbot from Season 2; Casey Thompson from Season 3 & Season 8: All-Stars; Amanda Baumgarten from Season 7; Brooke Williamson, Sheldon Simeon, & John Tesar from Season 10; Shirley Chung from Season 11; & Katsuji Tanabe from Season 12.

My personal pick? I love Brooke, Shirley, & Katsuji, so…we’ll see how the newbies stack up against them! Also, I’m happy that Graham Elliot (former judge on MasterChef and competitor on Top Chef Masters) is joining Tom, Gail, and Padma, as well as all the great guest judges, Richard Blais, Michael Voltaggio, Hugh Acheson, & more.

On tonight’s episode, “Something Old, Something New,” the new chefs enter the kitchen first to cook as many dishes as possible in one hour using a whole chicken; the veterans square off to re-imagine shrimp and grits.

To see which chef gets taken out first, tune in to Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Rosewood, The Great Indoors, Chopped, The Great American Baking Show, & Beat Bobby Flay.

tourgroupsmallFor weeks, during the episodes of Top Chef, I’ve been seeing ads for Bravo’s new travel reality series Tour Group, and I’ve been looking forward to checking it out. The series, which premieres tonight, finds three expert tour guides taking a group of eleven strangers on a once-in-a-lifetime trip around the globe. The eclectic mix of travelers include a pair of half brothers who have never been outside of the US, a married couple getting over a near-death experience, an on-air personality who is reevaluating his work/life balance after his own back-to-back near-death experiences, a woman on one last hurrah deciding whether it’s time to settle down with her boyfriend, a guy who recently broke up with his boyfriend, estranged twin sisters, a women who just went through a messy divorce from her billionaire ex-husband, and another divorcée who is engaged for the thirteenth time! It’ll be interesting to see how this odd mix of personalities learn to get along while experiencing new cultures and breathtaking locations. It kind of looks like The Amazing Race but without the challenges or elimination – the participants just get to enjoy the experience.

On tonight’s episode, “Not in Georgia Anymore,” the group lands in Marrakech, Morocco, to begin their journey in the series premiere of this travel-reality show about three tour guides and a group of strangers taking a globe-trotting trip. Also: A playboy sets his sights on estranged twin sisters.

Check out this fun new travel-reality show tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Muppets, Marvel’s Agent Carter, New Girl, Grandfathered, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Grinder, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Teen Wolf, and The Shannara Chronicles.
