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.

legendsoftomorrowsmallTonight, the DC TV universe gets a little bit bigger – and a lot more timey-wimey – as The CW kicks off DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. This series has been a long time coming. It seems like much of the current seasons of The Flash and Arrow have been spent getting the pieces in place for this spin-off.

The series centers around time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill, Doctor Who), who assembles a team of heroes and villains to help prevent the world’s destruction. If you’ve been watching the other DC shows on The CW, this new super-powered group will look very familiar: Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber, Alias) & Jax Jackson (Franz Drameh) – who together form Firestorm – The Atom (Brandon Routh, Chuck), White Canary (Caity Lotz, Arrow), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell, Prison Break) & Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller, Prison Break), and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée) & Hawkman (Falk Hentschel).

I can’t wait to see how this team comes together, what kind of time-bending adventures await them, and how it will tie into the DC TV universe. I’m also curious to see how Vandal Savage managed to survive after his last confrontation with members of this superteam…and what kind of evil plan he is hatching now.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot, Part 1,” Time Master Rip Hunter puts together his diverse team to fight immortal villain Vandal Savage, who is on the verge of destroying humanity in 2166.

Check out the new group of crime fighters tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces, Angel from Hell, Heroes Reborn, The Blacklist, The 100, Baskets, Top Chef, Recipe for Deception, Colony, Workaholics, and Idiotsitter.

penntellerfoolussmallI’m a happy TV watcher today because Penn & Teller: Fool Us comes back tonight on The CW with the premiere of its second season. This show (recorded over in the UK, I believe) features magicians performing in front of a studio audience, including legendary magician duo Penn & Teller. If the magician can fool Penn & Teller so that they can’t tell/guess how the trick was performed, that person wins the right to perform with them in their show in Vegas at the Rio Hotel & Casino. As you would guess, there aren’t many who perform tricks that Penn & Teller (who’ve been doing magic for YEARS) haven’t seen or done themselves, but I saw it happen a few times last season. And no matter whether Penn & Teller are fooled, the acts are always fun to watch.

On tonight’s episode, “Phone-y Business,” the magicians featured include Jon Armstrong, Xavier, Greg Dow aka The Shocker, and Steve Brundage. British television and radio personality Jonathan Ross (Friday Night with Jonathan Ross) serves as host.

See if you can catch the tricks tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warriors, Cake Wars, So You Think You Can Dance, Major Crimes, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Murder in the First, & Top 5 Restaurants.
