I loved the first season and first half of the second season of To Tell the Truth. I never watched reruns of the original, but I love this new version, hosted by Anthony Anderson – and frankly, by his mother, who sits on the sidelines and interjects her own commentary. LOL The celebrities are usually fun to watch as they try to figure out who is lying and who is telling the truth. The best ones are usually the ones who really get into it. They don’t worry about what they look or sound like – they just let loose and have fun, really get into the spirit of the show.

On tonight’s episode, celebrities Justin Long, Arielle Kebbel, Nikki Glaser, and Kal Penn are presented with a variety of participants with interesting traits, from the only person in the world to bike to the South Pole, to the “Doggy Designer to the Stars,” as well as Usher’s choreographer.

See who is lying and who is telling the truth tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Big Star Little Star, Brother vs Brother, Cutthroat Kitchen, The F Word, Blood Drive, & Lip Sync Battle.

I was so happy when I heard the news that this season of So You Think You Can Dance was going to be getting back to the original format. That means dancers ages 18-30 will be in one group and dancing with All-Stars their own age. No more splitting into “stage” and “street” dancers and most importantly, no more kids. I don’t mind watching kids dance, but it just didn’t work the way they tried to do it. Thankfully, not only is the original format back, but so is Mary Murphy at the judges’ table! Joining her and Nigel Lythgoe this season is musician and actress Vanessa Hudgins. I have my fingers crossed that she’ll be better than Paula and Jason were in the previous seasons.

On tonight’s episode, “Los Angeles Auditions #1,” hopefuls perform for the judges, vying for a place in the callback rounds.

See if there are any standout auditions tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Kids BBQ Championship, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Superhuman, & Incredible Edible America with the Dunhams.

My pick tonight is another new competition series, but it’s even more different than last night’s dance one. Tonight is the start of Big Star Little Star on USA Network. The fabulous Cat Deeley is host, and she’s just as charming and fun as she is as host on So You Think You Can Dance. On this celebrity family game show, celebrities are paired with their kids as they have fun testing their knowledge of one another. All of the teams win money for their charities at the end, not just the winners of each episode, which makes it even better. Through a handful of different rounds, we get to learn more about the celebrities and their personal lives from their kids…who won’t fail to be completely honest about what their parents are REALLY like at home, away from the cameras and Hollywood. I’ve seen a few of the episodes already and really enjoy it. It’s certainly the funniest when the celebrity parent is just as honest about themselves as their kids are!

On tonight’s episode, Cat is joined by Todd Chrisley and son Grayson, Marissa Jaret Winokur and son Zev, and Chad Johnson and daughter Cha’iel.

Catch all the fun tonight on USA Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Little Big Shots, MasterChef, Bakers vs Fakers, Brother vs Brother, The F Word, & Cooks vs Cons.

Lucifer has been heating up episode by episode, and it’s all about to come to a head. Last week’s episode, we watched Maze and Lucifer fight it out about how Lucifer has not been honest with Maze concerning the reasons behind him trying to get back to heaven. Maze was hurt because Lucifer didn’t come to her with the plan and her part in it. They fought in the streets, and both of them ended up pretty banged up.

Also in the episode, Charlotte was slowly coming unraveled, quite literally, where light was spewing out of her body. She accidentally killed someone when he stabbed her and the light came pouring out. Hopefully, her sons can get her under control before she kills anyone else.

On tonight’s season finale, “The Good, The Bad, and the Crispy,” after Charlotte accidentally charbroils a man to death in self-defense, Lucifer must try and keep Chloe from figuring out the truth. Lucifer puts Maze in charge of finding Charlotte and Amenadiel, who have both gone missing in light of recent circumstances, while he finds a permanent solution for the ticking time bomb he calls Mom.

To see how Lucifer deals with his mother, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Still Star-Crossed.

Tonight, FOX kicks off the new series Beat Shazam, a modern version of the classic Name That Tune game show. Actor/musician Jamie Foxx (Ray) hosts the series, which finds four teams of two trying to identify songs as quickly as humanly possible. Each round, the teams are presented with a choice between two music categories, and the faster they can name the songs, the more points they win. The team with the lowest score at the end of each round is eliminated. The last team remaining moves on to the final round, where they compete against the world’s best song-identifying app, Shazam – where “as fast as humanly possible” may not be quick enough! The series is executive-produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Voice) and Jeff Apploff (Don’t Forget the Lyrics!).

This series looks like it will be a lot of fun, though I’m hoping there is a lot of 80s and 90s music, because I haven’t listened to the radio in years (too many podcasts and audiobooks to listen to!). I look forward to meeting tonight’s contestants and seeing which pair takes home the cash prize.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race and Red Nose Day.
