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.

Tonight, The Amazing Race returns to CBS as 22 new contestants start their adventure around the globe in hopes of taking home the $1M prize. However, for this 29th season, there is a big twist: all eleven teams will be comprised of complete strangers! This race is already difficult enough when you can plan ahead for your partner’s strengths and weaknesses, but meeting your teammate on the starting mat adds even more stress to the game! A while back there was a season where half the teams were “blind dates,” and it actually worked out surprisingly well for the teams that just met. It will be interesting to see if that’s the case again. Will the lack of a history to bicker about actually help these newly formed teams? At least there isn’t necessarily a forced pretense of a love connection between the teammates this time around.

On tonight’s premiere, “We’re Coming for You, Phil!” twenty-two strangers meet at the starting line in Los Angeles and then pair up to form eleven teams who then fly to the first destination: Panama City.

Meet the new teams tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

hawaiifiveo513smallOn last week’s Hawaii Five-0, Chin learned some shocking news: he’s an uncle! It was a shock to everyone to learn that Gabriel had a young daughter. (In case you don’t remember, Chin was married to Gabriel’s sister until she was killed.) Chin found out about the girl when her mother was killed while she was at a neighbor’s house at a sleepover. Then she was kidnapped by Michelle Shioma’s (one bad, cold woman…) people in order to draw Gabriel out to Shioma, and the gang had to find her. Unfortunately, in the process, they killed the man who they believed would turn on Shioma, which meant they still couldn’t arrest her! Ugh!

Tonight is a double-episode season finale. We’re still in the middle of the Gabriel story line, which hopefully will be resolved tonight. Unfortunately, I don’t think Adam is in either story, which means he’ll still be in prison by season’s end (and I’m assuming at the beginning of next season). I don’t like that… I would love to see him and Kono get to start their HEA!

On tonight’s first episode, “Pa’a ka ‘ipuka i ka ‘upena nananana (The Entrance is Stopped with a Spider’s Web),” trapped inside a dilapidated building in Oahu’s Chinatown, Five-0 must protect a wounded Gabriel (Christopher Sean) and plan their escape when enemy gunmen storm the building looking to kill him and anyone who gets in their way.

Then on the season finale, “O ke ali’I wale no ka’u makemake (My Desire is Only for the Chief),” in order to stop a meth epidemic on the Island, McGarrett and Danny go undercover as pilots, but when McGarrett is seriously wounded, Danny is forced to break their cover in order to save his partner’s life. Duane “Dog” Chapman guest stars.

See how the season ends tonight on CBS starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Grimm.

bluebloods56smallThis time of year always brings me a mixture of emotions. On one hand, I am always excited to see the excellent episodes that May brings, but on the other hand, it’s finale time, which means my favorites disappear for another year. Tonight it’s Blue Bloods that is wrapping up its season, and I am on the edge of my seat waiting to see where they’ll leave us next.

On the last episode, Erin and Anthony struggled to find a way to get a witness in a murder trial to testify as he feared for his safety. Erin managed to trick the defendant into confessing on camera when she locked the witness up for contempt and just happened to place him in a cell next to the defendant. It was a very smart move, which reminded me why I’ve always loved her character. Elsewhere, Frank was being encouraged to go the union party for the police officers, but he knew that if he went, the men wouldn’t have fun, so he sent someone in as a representative instead, and that made everyone happy. I’m hoping that in the season finale, we’ll get some sort of movement on the relationship between Jamie and Eddie, because it’s high time we see them together!

On tonight’s episode, “Blowback,” things heat up as Frank, the mayor, Erin, and the DA’s office contend with public outrage after a grand jury doesn’t indict an NYPD officer for the controversial shooting of a teenager that was caught on video. Also, when an officer is shot in what seems like retaliation, Danny and Baez go on a manhunt for the suspect.

To find out if they can calm the storm of the public outrage, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race and Hawaii Five-0.

sleepyhollow226smallSleepy Hollow has come back from hiatus and hit the ground running with a solid story that is continuing at a steady pace while still keeping us entertained with a weekly bad guy to watch our favorite witnesses fight.

On last week’s episode the Kindred returned and brought murder with him, but it would appear he is killing couples out of jealousy of their love. The creepy guy is lonely and looking for love… Wonder if Craigslist has a column for supernatural beings looking for their mate? Probably not, but that’s okay because apparently Ben Franklin anticipated this humanely need and made a bride for the Kindred that was stored centuries ago. Thanks to Ichabod and the team, they managed to bring her to life and stop the Kindred from murdering any more. It was a strange episode, but I will say that I’m enjoying the small moments of bonding that Crane and Abbie had this episode, and I’m hopeful we may finally be moving in a romantic direction for these two.

On tonight’s episode, “Sins of the Father,” when Jenny makes the decision to confront her father, family turmoil from the past rises to the surface. Meanwhile, Atticus Nevins returns to town, bringing more danger than the FBI could have imagined.

Find out how this family reunion goes tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, and The Amazing Race.
