On last week’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jake was happy to be out of jail and back at work, but he was tired of being assigned to desk duty. However, in order to get back in the field and work on a real case, he needed to pass an evaluation, and the person giving that evaluation was Captain Holt. Even though Jake bungled the robbery case he was working on, Captain Holt was pleased by his new outlook on work and putting the case first and cleared Peralta for active duty. But Jake decided he needed some more time behind a desk first. Meanwhile, Rosa thought Pimento was cheating on her and recruited Amy and Terry to help investigate. It turned out that he was just taking Spanish lessons in order to impress Rosa’s father. However, she had already decided to call off their relationship, and Pimento didn’t take the news well.

Tonight is the show’s annual Halloween Heist episode, which is usually one of the highlights of each season. The writers always throw in a lot of fun twists and misdirections that keep you guessing as to who is aligned with whom and what is actually going on. I never know who is going to win the contest each year until the final moments when everything is revealed, and then I realize that so much more had been going on that I didn’t even notice…and I want to immediately rewatch the episode again to catch it all!

On tonight’s episode, “HalloVeen,” the Nine-Nine embarks on its fifth annual Halloween Heist and, as usual, everybody has a plan and no one is safe. Relationships and friendships are tested as the title “Amazing Human Slash Genius” must be snagged by midnight, leaving everyone pitted against each other.

See who takes home the title tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Last week’s The Big Bang Theory was really great. Sheldon was stressing big-time as he tried to plan the perfect wedding, starting with the wedding date. He couldn’t settle on one because everything he tried turned out to be the birth or death date of a famous scientist, a “con” of some sort, or something similar. It was so bad that he was working it out through his subconscious while he slept, becoming completely unlike himself – laid-back, unopinionated, etc. And when he showed up at home looking like something wet the cat dragged in after pulling it through the mud, he just looked pitiful. In the end, he agreed gratefully to let Amy take control – again unlike him but showing his growth through the series. The other story line was Bernie’s new coworker, who both Raj and Stuart wanted to pair up with. Raj’s thought that he should get her because they were both Indian was hysterical, but poor Stuart is just…well, pitiful. In the end, they both acted like asses and neither got the girl. Surprise, surprise. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “The Explosion Implosion,” Wolowitz and Sheldon bond when they drive to the desert to shoot off a model rocket. Also, when Leonard’s mom, Beverly (Christine Baranski), finds a new best friend in Penny, it rubs Leonard the wrong way.

Find out why Leonard gets upset tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Brave.

Tonight, Showtime kicks off the new comedy series White Famous, which centers around the exploits of rising black comedian Floyd Mooney (Jay Pharoah, SNL) as he deals with career and relationship issues. Floyd is still in love with ex/baby mama Sadie (Cleopatra Coleman, The Last Man on Earth), and the two still hook up on occasion. Floyd also has a great relationship with son Trevor (Lonnie Chavis) and is an active and present father to him. However, Floyd now lives with best friend Ron Balls (Jacob Ming Trent, Feed the Beast), who often serves as his voice of reason. Meanwhile, Floyd’s ambitious manager Malcolm (Utkarsh Ambudkar, The Mindy Project) is constantly looking for the next big opportunity to help his client to become “white famous” – so famous that he transcends color.

The series has a nice blend of humor and interesting character drama. The pilot does a great job of introducing the characters and relationships and has some really fun moments. Jay Pharoah was always great at doing impressions on SNL, and they’ve found an organic way to work his comedy and impressions into the show. Plus, if the premiere is any indication, this series is going to have a great supporting cast – tonight’s 1-hour premiere features Stephen Tobolowsky and Jamie Foxx. The main criticism I have of the show is its excessive language – there are so many F-bombs dropped in this first hour!

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” a racially-charged encounter with a film producer goes viral, presenting an opportunity to a young comic, if he is willing to bend his principles. Then, in “Heat,” Malcolm pushes Floyd to commit to his next project; Trevor tours an expensive private school; Sadie comes clean about a relationship.

Don’t miss the premiere of the latest TV comedy tonight on Showtime at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Ten Days in the Valley, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Fear the Walking Dead, Good Behavior, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Tonight The CW sees the return of musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. As the second season came to a close, Rebecca and Josh were preparing for their wedding, though it was Rebecca who was doing most of the planning. Rebecca’s father returned, but instead of giving her the nod of approval she always yearned for, he was just there to ask for money. Meanwhile, Josh started to have doubts and ultimately decided to call off the wedding. He then made the extreme choice to become a priest. Rebecca, distraught from this news, was about to jump off a cliff when Paula talked her down. Now the only thing on Rebecca’s mind is getting revenge on Josh Chan.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can be soapy, campy, and over-the-top, but that’s what makes it so much fun – along with the hilarious musical numbers in each episode. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s premiere to see what Rebecca has in store for her revenge plan. Will Josh really become a priest? Will Rebecca finally move on and find someone else to obsess about? What other crazy situations will these people get up to? And what kind of extremely inappropriate song topics/lyrics can we look forward to this season?

On tonight’s premiere, “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend Wants Revenge,” Rebecca plots revenge against Josh after he abandoned her at the altar. Meanwhile, White Josh and Darryl work on some problems; and Paula and Scott confront some unusual issues in their marriage.

Catch up with Rebecca and her friends tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Inhumans, Jane the Virgin, Room 104, and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.

Tonight, Mr. Robot returns to USA Network to kick off its third season. Last season Elliot went off the grid in an attempt to completely get rid of Mr. Robot. But no matter how hard he tried, his alter ego kept resurfacing. Meanwhile, Darlene took the lead at fsociety, and the group broke into the home of an E Corp lawyer, using it as their new headquarters. Darlene tried to get answers from the Dark Army about what Stage 2 is, but the only information she was able to obtain was that it was Elliot’s plan, and he couldn’t remember anything about it. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Dom DiPierro was looking into both fsociety and the Dark Army – which nearly proved fatal for her. After the diner shootout, she interrogated Darlene, showing her a blackboard with the entire fsociety member hierarchy laid out. In the second season finale, we learned that Tyrell was alive, but Elliot was convinced that he, too, was just in his head – an idea that was quickly disproved when Tyrell shot him.

Could Tyrell still be a figment of Elliot’s imagination? Anything is possible – Elliot could have just shot himself! But if Tyrell is all in his head, who is going to call for help?! What is Stage 2 of the Dark Army’s plan? What evil plan does E Corp going to hatch next on the public? And can Darlene talk her way out of Dom’s seemingly closed case?

Tonight’s third season premiere opens right where we left off, with Elliot lying on the ground, bleeding from a gunshot wound. While the opener won’t address all the open questions, we do get to meet a really fun new character played by Bobby Cannavale! Also, in each of the first two seasons, the series built to a big twist or reveal, and I can’t wait to see what this year’s “Holy crap!” moment will be. I’m looking forward to another exciting season of crazy twists and turns.

On tonight’s premiere, “Eps3.0_Power-Saver-Mode.H,” when Elliot suddenly becomes aware of his situation and realizes the mission he needs to embark on, he seeks Angela’s help; Darlene gets upset about them potentially coming out clean; Elliot deals with a mysterious new person.

Find out what help Elliot seeks from Angela tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The Blacklist, Riverdale, Dynasty, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, The Shannara Chronicles, Channel Zero: No-End House, and Mr. Mercedes.
