The Mick has turned out to be one of my favorite new comedies this season. Last week, Chip got caught with a lewd photo on his phone and had to go in front of the school’s honor-board. Sabrina was overseeing the trial and wasn’t going to let her brother get off easy. Chuck refused to give the names of the students who sent the photo…until he realized that the photo he had pleasured himself to was of his sister. After puking several times, he immediately gave up the names. Meanwhile, Mickey had a scared-straight speech with Ben about what happens to “rats,” so when he witnessed a man keying the family’s expensive car, he refused to tell Alba what he knew.

This show is so hilarious. Every week I find myself laughing out loud. The writing also seems to be getting better each week, as the writers find new and clever ways to intersect the various story lines and pair up the characters. I can’t wait to see what crazy, messed-up antics the family gets up to tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Mess,” Mickey dumps the “cool aunt” persona and decides to lay down the law when the kids ignore her attempts at disciplining them.

See how Mickey stands up to the kids tonight on FOX at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, Bones, Imposters, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Face Off, and Teachers.

I hate (or love… It’s kind of a love/hate relationship!) when shows make me feel bad for the killer. That’s what last week’s Bones did. A young man who tutored privileged high school kids was killed, and it seemed like Booth and Bones had more suspects than they could shake a stick at. From the head of the school to the overbearing parents to the dead guy’s roommate… But in the end, it was one of the students who killed him. The boy thought the tutor was his friend, that he liked him (in a friend way, not a romantic way). But the tutor decided to quit and told the kid that he was nothing more than a paycheck for him. The kid (who had one of those very overbearing parents who pushed and pushed him about getting perfect grades and getting into the perfect – to her – school) took it badly and snapped, killing him. My favorite part of the case was Aubrey getting…stuff dropped on him at the crime scene. It happens to them all at least once! On the personal front, Brennan freaked out when she heard the audiobook version of her latest book, and she decided she would record it herself. Unfortunately, that didn’t go as planned, so she decided that she’d done her part in writing it and she wouldn’t worry about the audio part. (Thankfully, since she was horrible at it. LOL)

I always love it when Bones goes to a fun scenario to investigate a murder. Usually they’re undercover in some way (which I LOVE seeing), but not always. We’ve seen them at a shooting competition, in Vegas, at a circus, dancing, at a couples’ retreat… So tonight, they once again go to a fun new place to investigate. I don’t know if they’re going to be undercover, but even if they aren’t, it should be a lot of fun!

On tonight’s episode, “The Flaw in the Saw,” the dismembered body of successful golfer-turned-lumberjack Phyllis Paul brings the squints to the Lumber Sports Regional Championships. At this competition, Booth and Brennan discover numerous secrets that could have resulted in Phyllis’s murder, including an affair with a married rival. Meanwhile, Hodgins secretly analyzes the bacteria on the bone of a prior victim that he believes will exonerate the murderer, Zack Addy (guest star Eric Millegan). David Koechner (The Goldbergs, The Office, Anchorman) also guest stars.

Find out who killed the golfing lumberjack tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

Tonight, TV Land’s comedy Teachers returns for its second season. The series follows the misadventures of a group of inappropriate, underqualified elementary school teachers who always seem to let their personal lives and issues take over their classroom lessons and break room discussions. The series stars the women of the improv comedy group The Katydids (the name reflects the fact that all six of the members’ names are derivatives of Katherine). I really enjoyed the first season of the show – the cast has great chemistry, there was a lot of fun physical humor and witty dialogue, and quite a few laugh-out-loud moments. I can’t wait to see what craziness these women get up to this season.

On tonight’s premiere, “First Day Back,” Ms. Watson tries a premium online dating service; Ms. Snap learns she’s teaching the worst group of kids in the school; and Mrs. Adler is assigned a mobile classroom.

Check out the start of the new season tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, This Is Us, New Girl, The Mick, Bones, No Tomorrow, Sweet/Vicious, and Shooter.

Last week’s NCIS dealt with a congresswoman who was receiving threats, including a dead rat left in her car with a note saying she was next. The woman didn’t seem to take them seriously at all, until her assistant was killed. She annoyed me the entire episode. I guess you have to admire her “can do” attitude, but it was “must get elected, no matter the consequences, and that irritated me. I did call who the killer was. Shame on the assistant’s girlfriend! And I was kind of shocked to see Vance and the congresswoman flirting and agreeing to go out on a date. (Again, she annoyed me there. She was way too…take-charge, too…I dunno…something, for me. LOL)

I love holiday episodes on my procedurals, and I have loved all the episodes of NCIS where we see a young Ducky. So combine those two things, and I know I’m going to love tonight’s episode! Plus, Fornell is back, and he’s a riot, especially his interactions with Gibbs.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tie That Binds,” after the NCIS team tracks evidence from the murder of a Navy captain to Ducky’s deceased mother, Ducky looks back and questions a pivotal life choice he made 37 years ago. Also, the team exchanges holiday gifts, and Gibbs spends Christmas dinner with Fornell. Adam Campbell returns as Young Ducky, and Juliette Angelo returns as Emily Fornell.

Find out what choice Ducky questions tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

ncis1122smallLast week’s NCIS was a sad one, case-wise. The witness in a murder case was a former Marine, but when the team looked into him as a suspect before they knew he was just a witness, it caught the attention of Immigration, who came for him, as the guy had never formally become a citizen after moving from Mexico with his mother as a young child. He assumed like many do that when he served in the military, citizenship was automatically granted. So Bishop and Torres were sent to get him from where he’d been spotted and picked up and bring him back to NCIS to turn over to Immigration. He begged to visit his mother first, so Bishop and Torres agreed, even lying to his mother about who they were and where he was going, saying he was rejoining the Marines and being sent overseas again, rather than being deported. I didn’t really understand that… What, is he just never going to tell his mother?? Seemed a little silly, but whatever. I’m hoping that we’ll revisit this story line again later, with Gibbs finding a way to help the guy and bring him back legally to the US.

On a personal front, Tony’s father was in town to sublet Tony’s apartment, since he was staying in Paris with his daughter for an unspecified length of time. Senior couldn’t figure out who to give the apartment to, since McGee, Bishop, and Abby wanted to sublet it. In the end, he and Jimmy drew names, and to everyone’s surprise, Torres won the draw. He gave it to McGee & Delilah. I guess that’s fair, given that McGee and Tony worked together and were friends for years, but…whatever. 🙂 It was fun to see McGee, Bishop, and Abby compete to win Senior’s affection. McGee tried to appeal to his romantic/family side, showing him a photo album he’d put together of himself and Delilah, telling him about their engagement. Bishop wrote a long, wordy essay. And Abby tried to show him how much she loved spending time with him by having him come to the lab, etc.

On tonight’s episode, “Enemy Combatant,” after NCIS Agent Bishop is sent to Gitmo to gather evidence for a Navy chaplain murder case, she questions her previous work at the NSA. Also, Bishop’s brothers, George, John, and Robert (Ryan Doom, Jesse Bradford, and Jesse Johnson), visit for the Thanksgiving holiday and pester her co-workers to find out who she is dating.

Find out why Bishop questions her work at the NSA tonight on CBS at 8/7c.
