I’m so freaking excited about this premiere – one of the shows I’ve been most excited about this new season. Based on the Jason Bourne books by Robert Ludlum and the movie franchise, Treadstone is an action-packed thriller set amidst the CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone. For those who’ve seen the movies, Treadstone is the program that turned Jason Bourne into…well, Jason Bourne. The show explores the origin story and present-day actions of the infamous covert program that uses behavior modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. It follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

The show stars Brian J. Smith (Sense8, Stargate Universe), Michael Gaston (Blind Justice, The Leftovers, Strange Angel, Unforgettable), Michelle Forbes (Wonderland, Snitch, The Killing, Berlin Station), Omar Metwally (Line of Sight, Virtuality), Patrick Fugit (Outcast, Reckless), Tracy Ifeachor (Quantico, The Originals, Crossbones), Tess Haubrich (Pine Gap), Emilia Schule (Berlin Station), Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Hyo Joo Han, Jeremy Irvine, & Shruti Haasan. Treadstone was developed by and executive produced by Tim Kring (Heroes, Touch, Crossing Jordan).

The show should be completely full of action and intrigue, I’m hoping like a 1-hour movie each week. Woohoo! So can’t wait for this one!

On tonight’s episode, “The Cicada Protocol,” superhuman assassins created during a covert operation are reactivated to resume their deadly missions.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Conners, NCIS, Chopped, FBI, & NCIS: New Orleans.

I’m really digging Prodigal Son on FOX. Malcolm is a little bit (a lot bit… LOL) crazy, but given his father and family history, it’s no surprise. Seeing him go flying through the window during a nightmare last episode was pretty shocking. The case was average. For the most part, the cases aren’t the highlights of this show, IMO. Some of it, like the brain being taken and Malcolm elbowing the guy off the roof of the building, was fun and unexpected, but really, the best parts are the interactions between Malcolm and the police team and learning about Malcolm’s past through his nightmares. This week, I loved him handing out the suckers to the team – including the ME, who is so cute in her crush on him – and holy heck! What’s going on with his mother?? Did she really KNOW about his father’s serial killing when it was happening, or is that just a tease right now? Sure seems like she knew, or at least suspected, but I dunno… She’s interesting, that’s for sure!

On tonight’s episode, “Designer Complicity,” as Malcolm’s childhood memories start to take shape, he realizes his father’s killing spree may not have been a surprise to everyone in his family. While Malcolm continues to investigate his past, the murder of a famous model and social media influencer sends him, Gil, Dani, and JT on the hunt for a stalker with a creepy eye for design.

Learn more about Malcolm’s past tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching 9-1-1, Bob Hearts Abishola, All Rise, Halloween Baking Championship, & Halloween Cake-Off.

Charmed returns from hiatus tonight, and I am looking forward to seeing the sisters return to my television weekly. When I found out there was going to be a remake before the premiere of the first season, I was worried because I adored the original so much that a remake seemed like a bad idea. Thankfully it was not. The new cast and the 21st century twists the writers have taken really makes this show truly an update and very relevant to today’s culture.

When we left our witch sisters at the end of last season, the Elders had been murdered, leaving the girls in charge going forward. Maggie was still holding out hope that she and Parker could be together, even though he was a demon. Macy had just learned that she could not become the source without her demon blood making her become evil. Thankfully, the love of the sisters saved the day yet again, and we were left wondering what kind of world they would be watching over going forward. I’m interested to see how they play this season out, and if the girls are in charge, then how are they going to balance their lives as well as their duties?

On tonight’s season premiere, “Safe Space,” following the devastating loss of The Elders, Mel, Maggie, and Macy take over their duties. Maggie takes time to celebrate her birthday with a big bash, but Mel finds herself too preoccupied with their new responsibilities to join in the fun. As the girls clean up the following morning, Macy shocks her sisters with an announcement.

Find out if these young witches can handle all this responsibility tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, and Magnum P.I.

On last week’s episode of Superstore, Mateo’s lawyer was at Cloud 9 collecting testimonials for Mateo’s bond hearing, but most of the statements about how wild and fun he could be would probably do him more harm than good. So Amy tried to get the co-workers to embellish, making Mateo sound more kind and generous, but this also backfired. Eventually, she and Cheyenne tracked down Jeff and used an old photo to manipulate his emotions and get him to agree to making a statement about how he heard the company execs illegally ordering the ICE raid. Meanwhile, Sandra was convinced that Dina was throwing her a bachelorette party, despite the fact that she kept adamantly denying it, since it wasn’t part of her official Maid of Honor job responsibilities as defined on the internet. Jonah felt bad and enlisted Garrett’s help in throwing a party. However, once Dina found out, she was upset, accused them of trying to make her look bad, and reluctantly agreed to throw the party…but having Sandra be responsible for most of her own party. At the same time, Jerry awkwardly asked Garrett to be his Best Man, even though the two hardly knew one another. When it came time for the party, Sandra was once again overshadowed – her party had been re-purposed into a celebration of the fact that Mateo had been released on bond.

Last week, there were once again stirrings of unionization, and with Jeff preparing a statement about the ICE raid, it looks like we are gearing up for an employee mutiny this season. The show does a great job of mixing in these more serious topics while also keeping things funny. I have my doubts that Sandra will ever actually get her wedding day, but I’m hoping that something finally works out for her!

On tonight’s episode, “Forced Hire,” when Amy hires Dina’s nemesis Colleen, Dina blackmails Garrett into making Colleen’s life a living hell; Jonah is forced to befriend Marcus to unionize the warehouse guys.

See how Dina blackmails Garrett tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, Young Sheldon, The Unicorn, Carol’s Second Act, Evil, Perfect Harmony, The Good Place, and Chrisley Knows Best.

When I was a child, I spent many nights lying awake with a flashlight reading Nancy Drew books and picturing myself there helping her solve these mysteries…so I was ecstatic when I heard that The CW was going to have a show this season based on the teenage detective. Tonight is the premiere of Nancy Drew, and I am very interested to see if they can do my childhood favorite the justice it deserves.

Nancy (Kennedy McMann) is an intelligent teenage detective who solves mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine, but when her mother passes away suddenly, Nancy’s plans for college are put on hold. After her mother died, Nancy decided to stop solving crimes and trying to work toward re-applying to college, but a murder in town forces her into the detective life again. She not only decides to start trying to help solve the murder but finds herself a prime suspect along with four other teenagers who now must all team up to clear their names.

The other four people on the suspect list are Nancy’s nemesis from high school, George Fan (Leah Lewis); a rich girl with a mysterious past, Bess Marvin (Maddison Jaizani); Nancy’s secret boyfriend, Ned “Nick” Nickerson (Tunji Kasim); and amiable burnout Ace (Alex Saxon, The Fix). The show also stars Scott Wolf (The Night Shift, Party of Five, Everwood) as Nancy’s father, attorney Carson Drew; Alvina August as Detective Karen Hart, who is dating Carson; and Riley Smith (Frequency, Proven Innocent, Studio City, Drive) as Ryan Hudson…who I can’t find anything about, although I believe he is somehow related to the victim.

There is bound to be some exciting times with intense storylines and romantic moments.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene; the teens must team up to clear their own names.

To see if Nancy can help solve this murder and clear everyone’s names, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, The Masked Singer, Riverdale, SEAL Team, Almost Family, Guy’s Grocery Games, Stumptown, and S.W.A.T.
