Last week, Superstore took a week off, but tonight it returns for the first of the final three weeks of the season. In the last episode, Glenn brought all of his past and present foster kids to the store to take a family photo for wife Jerusha. Cheyenne offered to watch toddler Bobbie Sue but almost immediately lost sight of her. So Garrett and Dina helped build a baby trap out of a plastic container and a toilet plunger, with some black licorice for bait, and shockingly, it worked! Meanwhile, Mateo tricked some of the kids into doing his work for him, while he used them as a sounding board to deal with his breakup blues. And when Jonah made a connection with 25-year-old Kristen, Glenn asked Amy to take the fall as he tried to break them up.

This show has such a great ensemble of characters. No matter how they are paired up each week, there’s always so much chemistry and so many laughs. That said, I’m a little nervous about tonight’s episode, as it marks the return of Cheyenne’s fiancé, Bo, who was easily my least favorite part of the first season. I’m hoping that somehow having a new baby has mellowed him out a bit. I’m also interested to see how the whole Jonah and Amy “will they or won’t they” plays out in these final three episodes of the season… Will they build to some kind of cliffhanger in the season finale?

On tonight’s episode, “Spring Cleaning,” a “spring cleaning” day is initiated by Glenn, and Amy and Garrett snoop into abandoned photos during the cleanup. Also, Jonah tries to gain Glenn’s approval, and Cheyenne’s fiancé begins working at the store to make fast cash for their wedding.

See what Amy and Garrett find in the pictures tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Catch, The Amazing Race, Powerless, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior, and Kicking & Screaming.

NBC’s Superstore is always one of the highlights of my Thursday night TV watching. Last week it was Valentine’s Day at Cloud 9, and Amy and Glenn tried to play matchmaker for Myrtle, but their attempts to set her up with another elderly employee resulted in a sexual harassment investigation. Meanwhile, Garrett learned about Mateo’s secret relationship with Jeff and tried to push his jealousy over Sandra’s pretend relationship to the boiling point. And Jonah went undercover to help Dina catch a shoplifter, but he ended up falling for his mark. So Dina made sure to burn that potential relationship to the ground by pretending that Jonah was the deadbeat father to her children. But in the end, Jonah was back to joking and having a good time with Amy as the two cleared the store of its Valentine’s Day decorations.

Earlier this week, NBC announced the wonderful news that Superstore had been picked up for a third season. This series just keeps getting funnier and funnier – this ensemble cast just works so well together and has really found their groove. When I was watching the show last week, I couldn’t help but be reminded of The Office, when that show was really firing on all cylinders. I’m so happy there are plenty more crazy adventures to come for the Cloud 9 crew.

On tonight’s episode, “Super Hot Store,” angry tensions magnify when the store’s thermostat breaks, leaving the staffers miserably hot inside Cloud 9. Meanwhile, Dina and Garrett find a way to pass the time, and Cheyenne helps Glenn through an existential crisis as he tries to fix the heater.

See how Dina and Garrett occupy themselves tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Training Day, Powerless, The Blacklist, MasterChef Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

There’s a fun new show starting tonight on FOX, called My Kitchen Rules. Based on the No. 1 show of the same name in Australia, it pits five celebrity duos against one another in the kitchen. The duos will take turns hosting dinner parties, where they must cook and serve an appetizer and an entrée. The other duos, along with chefs/judges Curtis Stone and Cat Cora, will score the food on a scale of 1-10, with the judges’ scores given more weight. The celebrity duo with the lowest score each round will be eliminated. The duos include: Lance Bass & his mother Diane, brother & sister Brandy & Ray J Norwood, Andrew Dice Clay & his wife Valerie, Naomi Judd & her husband, and friends Brandi Glanville and Dean Sheremet.

I’ve actually seen the first handful of episodes, and while the food/cooking part is fun enough, the interaction between the duos is what makes the show really worth watching. I will say that going in, I thought for sure I would like two of the duos a lot, be okay with two, and dislike one. In a weird turn of events, I hated the two I thought I’d like, as well as one of the two I thought I’d be okay with, and I really liked the other I thought I’d be okay with, as well as the one I thought I’d hate! So color me surprised. It’s a fun show. Not one you have to think a lot about, but it’s fun to see into these celebrities lives and learn a bit more about what they seem to be really like.

On tonight’s episode, “Brandy & Ray J, Lance Bass Dinner Parties,” Musicians – and siblings – Brandy and Ray J prepare a challenging meal; musician & TV host Lance Bass and his mother prepare a Southern feast.

Find out who can cook and who can’t tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great American Baking Show, Hell’s Kitchen, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, Top Chef, Beat Bobby Flay, & That Awkward Game Show.

superstore1110smallLast week on Superstore, it was election day, and Cloud 9 served as a polling station. Dina and Glenn accidentally destroyed a bunch of the ballots and then bickered a lot while trying to figure out a way to cover it up. Meanwhile, Amy and Jonah were having fun creating an alternative election pamphlet, but this came to an abrupt end when Jonah’s new girlfriend Namoi showed up – Amy seemed a bit jealous when she learned Jonah had a girlfriend. And Mateo realized he was an illegal alien and desperately tried to get a hold of an “I Voted” sticker in order to stop people from questioning him as to why he hadn’t voted yet.

Tonight we get a double dose of episodes for the fall finale. This show is a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see how Cloud 9 deals with Black Friday! While I really like Amy and Jonah together, it seems odd that the writers are still pursuing this will-they-wont-they storyline. They sort of wrote themselves into a corner by making her married with a child – who wants to root for a homewrecker in a comedy?!

On tonight’s first episode, “Seasonal Help,” unruly seasonal employees are hired to help over the holidays. Among them is Amy’s husband, a development that exposes her in unexpected ways. Also, the temps frustrate Jonah and Garrett, and Glenn seeks the perfect person to play the store’s Santa.

Then, in “Black Friday,” the staffers all fall ill with food poisoning on the busiest shopping day of the year, yet a frantic Amy suspects her nausea is morning sickness. Also: Glenn’s demeanor changes following a pharmacy trip; and Mateo and Cheyenne embark on a side business.

Catch the double episodes tonight on NBC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, The Blacklist, Pitch, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and 60 Days In.

pitch922smallTonight, FOX kicks off the new drama series Pitch. From a young age, aspiring baseball pitcher Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, Under the Dome) was trained by her father (Michael Beach, Sons of Anarchy), and she eventually made it into the minor leagues. Now her big day has come – she’s been called up by the San Diego Padres, making her the first woman to play Major League Baseball. Suddenly thrown into the limelight, Ginny must prove herself to the fans and her own teammates, especially team captain Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Franklin & Bash). The rest of the main characters include team manager Al Luongo (Dan Lauria, The Wonder Years), general manager Oscar Arguella (Mark Consuelos, All My Children), Ginny’s agent/friend Amelia Slater (Ali Larter, Heroes), center fielder/minor league friend Blip Sanders (Mo McRae, Sons of Anarchy), and his wife Evelyn (Meagan Holder, You Again).

I got a chance to see tonight’s pilot during a screening/Q&A with the cast at this summer’s ATX Television Festival. It’s a really entertaining and inspiring story. Since the series is working closely with MLB, they will be using real team names and locations, which adds a nice layer of authenticity to what’s happening in the series. It seems a bit odd that the series starts right as Ginny starts in the majors rather than leading up to this moment over the course of the series. But I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of dramatic stories they plan to tell.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a young pitcher adjusts to life in the spotlight after making history as the first woman to play Major League Baseball.

Play catch with Ginny tonight on FOX at 8:59/7:59c.
