My pick is the first of tonight’s new CBS comedies, The Neighborhood. Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield, New Girl) is a friendly guy from the Midwest. When his wife Gemma (Beth Behrs, 2 Broke Girls) gets a job as a school principal in LA, they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover (Hank Greenspan). They quickly learn that their new neighborhood is…slightly different from their previous one, but it doesn’t faze them a bit. Unfortunately, their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer), is a little more than wary of the newcomers, while his gracious wife, Tina (Tichina Arnold, Everybody Hates Chris, Happily Divorced, Daytime Divas), rolls out the welcome wagon. Their younger son, Marty (Marcel Spears, The Mayor), thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community and finds his dad’s attitude about the Johnsons very funny, and their unemployed older son, Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney, Vice Principals), finds that Dave may finally be someone who understands him.

I haven’t seen the pilot, but the trailer looks pretty funny. I really like Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs, & Tichina Arnold, and Marcel Spears’s character Marty is amusing in the trailer. Cedric the Entertainer is hit or miss for me in terms of how much I like him, depending on how over the top the character is. But I think I’ll find the show and him funny this time, so I’m quite looking forward it.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a friendly Midwesterner moves his family to a Los Angeles neighborhood next door to Calvin, who’s concerned the newcomers will disrupt the culture on the block.

Meet the Johnsons and Butlers tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Happy Together, 9-1-1, Halloween Baking Championship, Magnum P.I., & Whose Line Is It Anyway?, .

I’m so excited because tonight is the beginning of the deluge of new episodes with the start of the new fall TV season. Yay! And back tonight is one of last fall’s breakout hits, 9-1-1, on a special night before tomorrow’s follow-up episode in the time slot premiere. A lot of people were skeptical before the show first aired and even after the first episode – because let’s face it… The show is a little over-the-top and silly at times. I mean, during season one, we saw them rescue a newborn baby from a drainpipe in the wall, a woman with a giant snake wrapped around her neck, a kids’ bouncy house that flew away and was perched dangerously on a cliffside, and a good number more. And don’t forget Chimney and the rebar right through his head! That’s a sight that took a long time to get out of my head, I’ll tell ya!

There was also a lot of personal drama over the course of the season. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen season 1!) Playboy/sex-obsessed Buck met and fell in love with 911 operator/older woman Abby, ending up alone when Abby took a leave of absence and decided to travel the world after her mother passed away. Cop Athena was dealing with her long-time spouse coming out as gay and her teenage daughter trying to commit suicide. Paramedic Henrietta cheated on her wife with her ex-girlfriend (ex-wife? I don’t remember), who was newly released from prison and is the other mother of her son. And if I remember right, the ex decided she was going to fight for custody. We learned fireman Bobby was injured years before on the job and became addicted to pain killers and alcohol, and that ended up getting his wife and kids as well as hundreds more people from their apartment complex killed when he accidentally set the building on fire by leaving on a space heater in the empty apartment where he went to be alone and use. He was never caught, and he still carries the guilt, but he’d been clean and sober since until he relapsed with alcohol after a bad call. At the end of the season, there seemed to be some sparks happening between Bobby and Athena, so that should be interesting… And then, of course, you can’t forget the rebar through Chimney’s head! Like…just above but right between his eyes! It was so freaky!

So that all leaves questions for the new season: 1) Abby’s still gone. How is Buck handling it? Is he back to his old ways? Alone and pining for her? 2) Is Henrietta’s ex still in the picture, and is there a custody battle going on? 3) How are things between Athena and Bobby? 4) How will new 911 operator Maddie (Buck’s sister!), played by the beautiful Jennifer Love Hewitt, fit in with the show? Will she be able to fill Abby’s shoes? 5) Will new firefighter/single dad Eddie work well in the new role? Will he be competing with Buck for “young, sexy guy,” and if so, how will Buck handle that? I can’t wait to find out!

On tonight’s premiere, “Under Pressure,” on one of the hottest days of the year, the first responders feel the pressure as harrowing incidents keep happening around the city. Meanwhile, Buck gets a surprise visit from his sister, Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Also, Athena questions her relationship with Bobby. Then, at the fire station, handsome new hire Eddie (Ryan Guzman) jeopardizes Buck’s chances of being chosen for a fireman calendar.

Don’t miss the start of another season of zany fun tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Celebrity Family Feud, The $100,000 Pyramid, & Worst Cooks in America.

Oh snap! Last week’s Chicago PD might have been the most perfectly titled episode to date: “Breaking Point.” The case itself was okay – a prominent alderman was killed, and of course the team solved the case. But the bigger story in my opinion was when Woods came after Olinsky. Apparently a hair of Olinsky’s was found on the dead body of Voight’s son’s killer, and a witness saw a woman in the area as well. Woods, of course, is trying to get to Voight through Olinsky, and it seems like Olinsky is going to hold steady…but when he went to Voight with the news about the witness being credible and said they should talk to Erin to get their stories straight, he may have run into Voight’s “breaking point” in terms of his loyalty to Olinsky: Erin. He said no, they didn’t want to do that yet, or something to that effect. And right then is when Olinsky realized that if it came down to Erin or him for Voight’s loyalty, he would not come out on top. Voight better do something quick if he wants to keep Woods from hearing the whole story from Olinsky!

I’m so excited about tonight’s episode. We get to learn more about Upton’s past, AND Bosch…I mean Titus Weller is guest starring! I love him, and it makes the time until the new season of Bosch starts next month!

On tonight’s episode, “Ghosts,” Upton brings back an old undercover identity to help take down a meth ring spearheaded by a former criminal contact. And with pressure from Woods mounting, Voight calls in a favor for Olinsky.

Find out what favor Voight calls in tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

Last week’s Chicago PD was tough on Burgess especially. A vigilante was going around killing rapists, and that brought up all of Burgess’s feelings about her sister’s attack. Even though they got her attackers, Burgess knew they wouldn’t be in prison nearly long enough for what they’d done. That meant she was pretty conflicted inside about tracking down the killer and putting them away. The killer turned out to be the female leader of a gang, and they caught her, but not before she killed another bad guy right under their noses (literally with a wire on trying to catch the guy, she shot and killed him). Burgess later admitted to Voight that she’d seen the gang lady get the gun, but of course Voight didn’t get angry. He understood more than anyone about wanting revenge.

Tonight is part one of a two-episode crossover with tomorrow’s Chicago Fire. This one should be a little different because instead of just having one cast member getting a scene or two in the other show or coming into it in the last five minutes, this will feature multiple characters throughout both episodes. It sounds so exciting and the previews have looked great, so I can’t wait to see how it goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Profiles,” Intelligence investigates a string of bombings targeting members of the media. Racing against a ticking clock, the team enlists Firehouse 51 to help examine the devices and prevent the next attack.

See how/why Intelligence and Firehouse 51 get involved tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, American Housewife, & Criminal Minds.

I was a big fan of the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which last aired in 2007 (not counting the reunion special in 2013). In that show, Carson Kressley (fashion), Jai Rodriguez (culture), Kyan Douglas (grooming), Ted Allen (food & wine), & Thom Felicia (design) teamed up to take straight men and turn them into…well, just better groomed & dressed straight men in better living conditions. Men who lived in messy houses and ate ramen or mac n cheese every night, had scraggly hair or unkempt beard, who wanted to clean up some for a special woman in their life (or to FIND a special woman) or their families, etc. Jai has been in some movies (& maybe TV?), Carson is everywhere it seems, I see Kyan all the time giving makeovers on the Rachael Ray Show, and Ted Allen is all over Food Network. The only one I haven’t seen anything of is Thom. But regardless, the show was a breakout hit and definitely launched a few careers.

Now it’s back as Queer Eye season six, taking place in and around Atlanta, Georgia, instead of New York. The show will touch on everything from LGBTQ rights to making farm-to-table foods and more. With this new season comes a new Fab Five: Tan France (fashion), Karamo Brown (culture), Jonathan Van Ness (grooming), Antoni Porowski (food & wine), & Bobby Berk (design). I don’t know anything about these guys, but I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be as entertaining as the original five!

Early this morning, Netflix dropped the entire sixth season, which means you can go now and binge-watch to your heart’s content.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Librarians, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, Law & Order: SVU, Property Brothers, The Amazing Race, Chicago PD, Corporate, & Match Game.
