Tonight, the third season of The Last Man on Earth comes to a close on FOX with a special 1-hour finale. Last week, the show took a sudden and unexpected leap forward in time, and Tandy comically and casually mentioned all of the “boring” stuff viewers missed during those 6 months. Melissa was now sane again and ready to walk down the aisle with Todd. Meanwhile, Jasper was talking up a storm, Erica and Gail were a couple, and Erica’s and Carol’s pregnancies had advanced tremendously. And the episode ended with Erica’s water breaking.

Will these untrained survivors be able to deliver the baby successfully, or will Erica face the same fate as her baby’s father? Will Carol also give birth before the end of tonight’s finale? And will we finally see the return of Kristen Wiig’s character? (I really hope so. She’s so hilarious!) The series creators already warned that this season finale was not written as a series finale, so we’ll likely be left with yet another twist/cliffhanger, so I really hope we hear of some good renewal news from FOX soon!

On tonight’s season finale, “When the Going Gets Tough; Nature’s Horchata,” the long-term consequences of surviving an apocalyptic event start to have a major impact on the group as their daily lives are turned upside down.

See how the season (series?) ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, Into the Badlands, The Leftovers, Silicon Valley, Veep, and American Gods.

Last week’s NCIS: LA found the team (mostly Sam & Callen) working with Hetty’s friends/former colleagues Retired Admiral AJ Chegwidden and Admiral Sterling Bridges while tracking a fourth friend/former colleague, Retired Captain Charles Langston. Langston pretended to be a homeless man asking for money on the street in stalled traffic, and all seemed calm until he got to a car and freaked out, smashing in the window and then getting into the car and holding the former driver/now passenger hostage. The victim ended up being a guy in charge at the veteran’s hospital who treated the veterans like dirt and didn’t do what he should have been doing for support. Langston didn’t kill him, just left him tied up for Kensi and Deeks to eventually find. Then he went to the VA hospital and donated all the money he’d gathered and had stockpiled, ranting about how all the people needed to be seen. In the end, it turned out the REAL bad guys they all ended up chasing had stolen a bunch of gold bars Hetty and the men had been set to use to pay off a ransom, but then it wasn’t needed. So it’s been sitting in a secure safe ever since…until the bad guys figured out where it was and stole it.

We also learned more about Granger, who was another of the colleagues involved in their group. It was nice to see them thinking about him! But my favorite moment had to be in the pawn shop, where Deeks saw a wedding veil and told Kensi she would look beautiful in it. She froze and then teared up a bit, and when pressed, she admitted that since her father wasn’t alive, she’d planned to ask Granger to walk her down the aisle. It was a very, very touching moment – and I’d love to see them go back to that moment when Kensi and Deeks get married.

We’re coming up to the final eps of the season. This current story line wraps tonight in time for the last two episodes, which will focus on Sam, his wife, and Tahir Kalid. How the rest of the team will play into the Sam-focused story line, I have no idea, but I’m sure they will. Will Deeks be haunted once again by Internal Affairs at the LAPD? Will we get a Deeks/Kensi proposal? What about Callen? Will we see Anna again? Maybe we’ll get some answers to some of those tonight…

On tonight’s episode, “Golden Days,” a gold heist investigation has the NCIS team working with Hetty’s former Vietnam War colleagues, Retired Admiral AJ Chegwidden (John M. Jackson), Admiral Sterling Bridges (James Remar), and Retired Captain Charles Langston (Carl Lumbly).

See if the team can help recover the stolen gold tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, Chicago Justice, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Match Game, & Iron Chef Eats.

Tonight, HBO’s high-tech comedy, Silicon Valley, returns for its fourth season on HBO. As the third season ended, the guys had realized they had only beta tested their new Pied Piper app with engineers, and even though it was a great program, it was too complicated for the general user to understand, so the adoption rate was extremely slow. So Richard hired a foreign click farm in order to fudge the numbers. Once Laurie got wind of this, she decided it was time for her to take her money out of the company. When she said she was selling her shares to the despicable person who made her the best offer, the guys feared she meant Gavin Belson. However, they were thrilled to learn that it was Erlich and Big Head who bought her shares, who had just barely outbid their overly confident competitor. But Gavin has hired former Pied Piper CEO Jack Barker at Hooli, and it seems like the pair has hatched some sort of revenge plan.

I just really enjoy this show. Having worked in the high-tech industry for a long time, I find these characters and situations so relatable and fun to watch. I love the quick pace of the series and how each episode always ends with some kind of big twist or reveal that makes you want to immediately see what happens next. I’m really curious to see how things play out now that Elrich is sort of in charge. Who will be the CEO of Pied Piper, what kind of crazy new characters will we meet, how will Gavin mess up things again at Hooli this season, and what do he and Jack Barker have planned?

I’m giving away a copy of the third season of Silicon Valley on Blu-ray at NoReruns.net, and today is the final day to enter. You can find the giveaway at: http://www.noreruns.net/2017/04/03/giveaway-win-silicon-valley-season-3-on-blu-ray/

On tonight’s premiere, “Success Failure,” the guys struggle to find funding for Pied Piper’s video-chat app to keep up with their rapidly growing user base. Meanwhile, Erlich encounters resistance from Big Head’s dad; Gavin clashes with Jack Barker at Hooli; and Richard hatches a revolutionary idea that could change his future.

See if the guys can find the funding they need tonight on HBO at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, Making History, The Last Man on Earth, Into the Badlands, Mary Kills People, The Leftovers, Veep, and Guerrilla.

Tonight, the seventh season of AMC’s The Walking Dead comes to a close. In last week’s episode, Sasha had been captured by the Saviors and was given the choice to join Negan or die. While Eugene hoped that she would give in like he did, he offered her the poison pill he had created a few episodes back in case she wanted to take the quick way out. Meanwhile, in the Hilltop, Gregory contemplated killing Maggie while her back was turned but ultimately couldn’t bring himself to do it – in fact, despite all his talk, he’s never even killed a single walker. And elsewhere, Rick and his crew raided Oceanside, as peacefully as possible, getting the guns they need for the forthcoming battle. When the group returned to Alexandria, Rosita revealed that she had brought back Dwight with her and that he wanted to help Rick take out Negan.

Can Dwight really be trusted? Will Gregory reveal Rick’s plan to Negan when he visits the Sanctuary? Or will we finally see all of these various groups of survivors band together and make their move against the Saviors? It should be an exciting season finale, and I’m looking forward to seeing if Rick and the gang will finally avenge the deaths of Glenn, Abraham, and the others who were brutally murdered by Negan or else see what kind of dangerous predicament they will be left in for next season.

On tonight’s 90-minute finale, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life,” the stakes keep mounting higher and higher as different stories clash, while the group enacts an intricate plan.

See if Negan gets his comeuppance tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Match Game, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, The Last Man on Earth, Into the Badlands, Big Little Lies, and Crashing.

I’m really enjoying having Philip Winchester on my TV each week, and Chicago Justice has been a great fit for him, even though he’s mostly been doing action shows/characters up till now. Last week was a tough one. An ex-Navy SEAL was killed shortly before he was supposed to get married. It turned out the killers were two of his best friends, his SEAL teammates, who killed him because he was writing a tell-all book about a botched mission they went on while on active duty and the fact that the Navy had covered up what really happened. During the investigation & subsequent trial, Stone was ordered by his boss not to offer the video (of the failed mission) the victim had kept secret, but he was able to skirt around that when one of the two killers mentioned the mission while on the stand. So instead of the video, the guy told what had happened, which got Stone around his boss’s orders – barely. Jefferies wasn’t happy, but he didn’t fire Stone, so…

One thing I don’t understand is the purpose of the DA’s investigators. Don’t get me wrong… I love Antonio and like Laura Nagel. But what do they do that the other police (the non-DA’s investigators) don’t? And like, on the description for tonight’s ep, why are they on scene of an apparent suicide? If it’s suicide, it wouldn’t be a case for the DA, so why are the DA’s investigators there? Ah well. Just a thought I had.

On tonight’s episode, “Dead Meat,” thirty miles outside of Chicago, the cancer riddled body of Chicago PD Officer Tim Cody is found dead in a bathtub. An apparent suicide. But when Antonio and Nagel arrive on scene, they quickly determine his death was murder. The trail leads to an old nemesis of Stone, and he has to make a new law to put him away. Michael Rispoli and Sofia Milos guest star.

Find out how Stone gets the bad guy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, NCIS: LA, Spring Baking Championship, & Cake Wars.
