It has been a season for emotional rollercoasters all over the television front this year, but the biggest roller coaster has been brought to us by This Is Us. What an incredible show this has turned out to be, although I knew it would be starting from the very first episode. The writers have gone above and beyond to draw the viewing audience in to the world of this family, leaving us all better for it. My weekly cry fests have been split between this show and Code Black, both shows that play on your heartstrings consistently.

This season has shown us the evolution of a couple, Jack and Rebecca, from the beginning of their marriage and as it evolved when they became parents of triplets. I have been cheering this couple on from the very start, but unfortunately we were told that Jack died along the way. Last episode, Kate finally told Toby that the reason she doesn’t discuss her father’s death is because it was her fault. Not sure where that’s going, but I am sure that wherever it ventures, it will leave us all in tears with more questions. Also on the last episode, Randall and his adorable family bid farewell to William, Randall’s biological father. It was a fun-eral… Instead of the usual depressing stuff at funerals, William wanted the family to celebrate his life. It was a moving and heartwarming episode.

Tonight’s season finale is bittersweet because, while I’m excited to get another new episode, I am also upset that there won’t be any new episodes after this one until next season.

On tonight’s episode, “Moonshadow,” Jack heads to Cleveland to make things right with Rebecca on the night of her first big gig with the band. Randall, Kate, and Kevin make big decisions about their futures.

Find out the big decisions tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Bones, Chopped, and Trial & Error.

Tonight, FX’s 1980s Cold War spy drama, The Americans, returns for its penultimate season. As the fourth season came to a close, things got really intense. William had arranged a meeting to hand off the vial of the Lassa virus to Philip, but once he realized the Feds were tailing him, he smashed the vial, infecting himself and alerting Philip that he was walking into a trap. The Centre started to fear that William might turn on Philip & Elizabeth while being interrogated in the hospital, so Gabriel left it up to them if they wanted to go back to Russia. In his dying words, William revealed to Stan that there was an undercover spy couple with kids living the American dream. Meanwhile, Paige and Stan’s son Matthew were starting to get close, so Philip told Paige he wanted her to break it off, as it was too dangerous. And finally, in Russia, Philip’s illegitimate son, Mischa, had been released from his detention thanks to some powerful friends. Later, Mischa asked his grandfather for information about the father he never met and decided to search for him in America.

I was both happy and sad when it was announced last year that The Americans had been picked up for a final two seasons to close out the series (13 episodes this year and 10 episodes next year). While it’s sad to think of this excellent show coming to an end, I’m really happy that the writers can now safely work to a planned conclusion with an end date in mind. This series has a wonderful slow burn, with many tense moments and unexpected twists, and the acting is amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing what Stan does with his new information about the existence of a spy family – will he start to suspect his own neighbors? Will Mischa arrive in the US looking for Philip, and how will that affect the Jennings’ undercover work? And will Paige finally turn to the dark side and join the family business?

On tonight’s premiere, “Amber Waves,” the Centre sends a new operation unlike anything before to Philip and Elizabeth, which puts more strain on their already tense marriage and family life.

See how Philip and Elizabeth deal with the new operation tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, This Is Us, Bones, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Imposters, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Face Off, The Detour, Teachers, and Chrisley Knows Best.

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.
