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.

Tonight, Syfy’s special effects/make-up reality competition series, Face Off, returns for its eleventh season. This All-Stars season finds 16 contestants and finalists from previous seasons returning to the workroom to compete once again. This time around, the contestants are partnered up into teams of two and will either win or lose together, with one team being eliminated every other week. In the first week, the team with the best creation will win immunity, and in the following week one of the remaining teams will be sent home. Also back are host Mackenzie Westmore, her father/contestant mentor Michael Westmore, and judges Glenn Hetrick, Ve Neill, and Neville Page.

I really like this new pairs-of-contestants format. In the old days, the individual contestants would get partnered up for challenges, but it was still ultimately an individual elimination, so there was always the excuses and plotting to throw the partner under the bus should something go wrong. This season, the contestants live and die by one another, and since they are partners throughout the competition, their ability to work with one another should improve with each challenge. I’m always impressed by the amazing things these artists come up with, and tonight’s premiere adds a whole new dimension to the challenge by having the contestants utilize green screen in their creations. It is a great start to another fun season, and I look forward to seeing what challenges lie ahead.

On tonight’s premiere, “Abstract Aliens,” the artists having to incorporate green screen technology when creating unique alien creatures.

See if you like the new format on tonight’s season premiere on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, This Is Us, New Girl, The Mick, Bones, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Teen Wolf, Sweet/Vicious, and Teachers.

Tonight, FOX is airing the premiere of new comedy The Mick at a special night and time before the series moves to its regular timeslot this Tuesday. Crass, foul-mouthed hustler Mickey (Kaitlin Olson, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) is down on her luck and looking for her next score. So she heads to Greenwich, CT, to surprise her sister and her billionaire husband, hoping to get them to buy into her latest investment scheme. However, the annual Labor Day bash is suddenly raided by the Feds, who are looking to arrest the couple for fraud. After her sister takes off, Mickey is left in charge of her spoiled niece and nephews. Eighteen-year-old activist Sabrina (Sofia Black D’Elia, The Messengers) thinks she knows everything and quickly proves to be a worthy adversary to Mickey, always hatching some sort of plan; thirteen-year-old Chip (Thomas Barbusca, The New Normal) has a sense of entitlement and is constantly threatening to sue when things don’t go his way; and seven-year-old Ben (Jack Stanton) just misses his parents. At first Mickey is thrilled to live the lavish life in a mansion but then realizes she needs to be a parent to these children. The cast also includes Carla Jimenez (Last Man Standing) as Alba the maid and Susan Park (Vice Principals) as Liz, the nosy next-door neighbor who’s constantly judging Micky with her passive-aggressive comments.

Tonight’s premiere basically just sets up the premise and the relationships between the characters, but I really enjoyed it, and it made me want to see more. I really enjoyed the face-offs between Sabrina and Mickey – it looks like that’s going to be a really fun part of the show. Both of these characters constantly think they have the upper hand on the other, only to realize they’ve been duped. This looks like it’s going to be a fun series, and I look forward to checking out more later this week!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” an irresponsible, hard-partying opportunist signs on to raise her sister’s three spoiled children in an affluent Connecticut neighborhood when their parents bolt the country to escape federal charges.

Move in to the new neighborhood tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording To Tell the Truth, Ransom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sherlock, Worst Cooks in America, Beyond, and The Librarians.
