Tonight, after seven crazy seasons, the Comedy Central series Workaholics comes to an end. Over the years, co-workers/roommates Blake, Adam, and Anders have found just about every excuse to avoid actually doing their telemarketing jobs and just spend their time partying or getting up to wacky schemes. They often show up to work drunk or high or engage in totally inappropriate workplace behavior. It’s a wonder how they haven’t been fired. But as much as they claim to hate their jobs, their coworkers – including always-angry boss Alice – have become a dysfunctional family. Last week, motivational speaker Bianca threatened to disrupt the annual workplace Darwin Awards ceremony, and the guys made it their mission to get rid of her. As she was leaving, Bianca offered Alice a job at her company. Even though the job was probably a lot better, Alice ultimately couldn’t bring herself to abandon her work family. It’s like they’re all trapped there for life.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this series comes to an end. The creators have known about this end date for a long time, so I really hope there is some kind of definitive end to the show. Will the guys finally get a little maturity and act like adults? Will the guys go out in a blaze of glory, Thelma & Louise style? Or will it just be not-no-much-business as usual, with the guys up to yet another off-the-wall scheme? Pretty much anything could happen!

On tonight’s series finale, “Party Gawds,” the guys become party gods after an energy drink company starts paying them to throw ragers.

To see how the series ends, tune in to Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Jeff & Some Aliens, Legion, The Magicians, The Expanse, and Major Crimes.

I love when franchises/shows do crossovers. We’ve seen it a lot in the #OneChicago universe, but tonight, we’re not only getting the biggest crossover to date, but they’re introducing the new Chicago Justice, as well! The action will start off in Chicago Fire and move from there into Chicago PD, finishing off in the courtroom with Chicago Justice. But don’t think that just because Chicago Med isn’t on the list that we won’t see the docs and nurses there. There will be plenty of action taking place at the hospital, so as the exec producer said in a recent TV Line interview, it’s like four shows taking place in three hours. But be aware… Tonight’s case is based on the headlines…on the Bay Area warehouse fire from just a few months ago. I trust that the show will treat the memory of those affected with respect, but if it’s something that is sensitive for you, you might want to skip tonight’s crossover.

As for the newest in the strong Chicago lineup, Philip Winchester stars as prosecutor Peter Stone, the Assistant State’s Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. His character has a fantastic tie-in to a great Law & Order character: he’s the son of renowned New York City District Attorney Ben Stone (played in Law & Order by Michael Moriarty). Carl Weathers plays Mark Jefferies, the Cook County State’s Attorney who is more into politics than Stone is. The prosecution’s team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro), Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator, and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, who moved over from Chicago PD), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire, “Deathtrap,” fire and rescue are called when an old warehouse-turned-work space turns into a firestorm, trapping countless victims; the doctors and nurses of Chicago Med deal with a barrage of patients as victims of the disaster are brought through the doors.

Then on Chicago PD’s “Emotional Proximity,” Olinsky’s daughter is in critical condition following a massive warehouse fire; Voight investigates the fire’s potential origins; intelligence examines connections between the building owner, those who were inside, and potential arson suspects.

Finally, on Chicago Justice’s “Fake,” Peter Stone and his team, including investigator Antonio Dawson, try to bring a warehouse arsonist to justice, and the suspect’s high-powered attorney tries to get his client acquitted.

Catch all the action and drama tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Major Crimes, Property Brothers, Bakers vs. Fakers, & Six.

On last week’s Criminal Minds, bodies (well, torsos…) were being found without the heads, legs, and arms. It was a creepy case of an abusive husband turning into a serial killer, but the team did catch up to him – just in time, too, before he could kill his husband. And poor Reid… He has his mom at home with him, trying to take care of her, but it’s a big job. He finally found someone who could handle helping him while he was out of town for work, but he’s keeping her in the dark with the mysterious drugs he’s giving his mom. He finally admitted at the end of the episode last week that trying to take care of her at home may be too much for him to handle. So what are the drugs he didn’t tell the caregiver about? And is he really going to move his mom to a home? And given the description for tonight’s episode, what in the world happened between last week and this?! I’ve read several places that this episode changes Reid’s life in a drastic way. I don’t think the actor is going anywhere, unless it’s the biggest secret the show’s ever kept. So…

On tonight’s episode, “Spencer,” when a BAU member gets in trouble in Mexico, the team enlists the services of the International Response Team for their help. Alana De La Garza & Daniel Henney from Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders guest star.

Find out why Reid is in Mexico tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Hunted, Lethal Weapon, Cooks vs Cons, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, black-ish, Bakers vs Fakers, Chicago PD, Match Game, & Six.

Tonight, the second season of Syfy’s futuristic space drama, The Expanse, takes flight with an exciting 2-hour premiere. In the first season, the ice hauler Canterbury was redirected to answer a distress signal from the freighter Scopuli, and the crew soon found themselves under attack from a stealth ship. As the surviving crew members tried to figure out what happened, they joined forces with a police detective from the asteroid belt, who was looking for Julie Mao, the daughter of a wealthy couple. They soon learned that Julie had become lethally infected while investigating a dangerous new biological weapon. The group then found itself in the wrong place at the wrong time as the mysterious creators of this weapon were performing a large-scale test on the residents of the remote Eros colony. They managed to escape on the Rocinante just as the protomolecule spread across the station, but a couple members of the crew had severe radiation poisoning.

As the second season opens, the fallout from the Eros incident has sent relations between Earth and Mars plummeting and a war is looming. Is there anything that can restore the peace? Who created this bioweapon, and what do they plan to do with it? Is someone purposely trying to cause a rift in the UN? Is there any place safe for the crew of the Rocinante, and what will they do with information they gathered on Eros? Can they stop this protomolecule or find a cure?

I really enjoyed tonight’s 2-hour premiere. It has a great mix of political drama and space/sci-fi action. There are some really interesting developments regarding the UN and the Earth/Mars relationship, we are introduced a whole new crew of Martian characters who will no doubt have a big role in this developing battle/conspiracy, and we also see our gang embarking on an exciting new mission. All of this leads to some pretty exciting moments and even more questions to be answered. I look forward to seeing what developments the rest of the season holds.

On tonight’s premiere, “Safe; Doors & Corners,” James Holden and the crew deal with the aftermath of their escape from Eros in the first half of this combined Season 2 premiere. In the second half, Holden and the crew stage a dangerous raid in search of information about the protomolecule.

See how the group deals with the fallout from the previous season tonight on Syfy 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Hunted, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Workaholics, Jeff & Some Aliens, Man Seeking Woman, The Magicians, and Suits.

I’ve seen a good handful of people claiming they won’t watch Criminal Minds anymore since Hotch left, but I think they’re missing out. I still say now, after being here a few episodes, Adam Rodriguez is a great fit for the team/show. Like last week, when he was part of the group who teased Garcia about being the last to know something instead of the first. That something had to do with Tara (remember… TAR-uh, not TEHR-uh), who was the focus of last week’s episode, since a strange man showed up to meet her, acting like he was her brother. Turned out he was one of the multiple-personality-disorder patients and Mr. Scratch had brainwashed him into believing he really was Tara’s brother. Thankfully the team was able to find her real brother and save him (barely!) and also get some help for the poor guy who’d been brainwashed.

Even after the addition of Luke Alvez a few weeks ago, the show/team is welcoming a new cast member tonight. Damon Gupton (who you might recognize from shows like Goliath, Bates Motel, The Player, Empire, and Prime Suspect) is joining the team. To me, he seems a bit older than the others (he’s not… I mean, technically I think he’s Kirsten Vangsness’s age, so only a few years older than AJ Cook. But from everything I’ve seen him in, he “feels” older, so it’ll be interesting to see how he fits in with the team. Plus, his character is a seasoned FBI profiler, so will he fit in as smoothly as Rossi did? I’m very interested to see how the dynamic might change now.

On tonight’s episode, “Scarecrow,” the BAU team heads to Yakima, Wash., after the remains of a dozen people are found along a creek bed. Also, they welcome new team member Stephen Walker (Damon Gupton), a seasoned profiler from the Behavioral Analysis Program of the FBI.

Travel with the team to Washington tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Brothers Take New Orleans, Cooks vs Cons, & black-ish.
