Hey ya’ll! It’s been a while – slow summer so far, huh? But tonight is a new show that I’ve been looking forward to since I heard about it months ago: ABC’s Take Two, which comes from Terri Miller & Andrew Marlow, the exec producers of Castle, and starring Rachel Bilson (The OC, Hart of Dixie) & Eddie Cibrian (Rosewood, CSI: Miami, Third Watch). Bilson plays actress Sam Swift, the former star of a hit cop series who had a breakdown caught by the paparazzi and was sent to rehab. Once released, her friend/manager comes to her with a possible new role as a private investigator, but Sam wants to learn the ropes, so her manager sets her up with lone-wolf private investigator Eddie Valetik (Cibrian). He isn’t happy about what he considers a babysitting gig, but by the end of the first episode, he realizes she can be an asset if he lets her.

I’ve seen the premiere, and I really enjoyed it. It’s a fun show – lighthearted, easy to watch, and Bilson and Cibrian have a great chemistry. I haven’t watched her since The OC, which I loved her in as Summer, but I absolutely love Eddie Cibrian, and this show is no exception. The show is a bit reminiscent of Castle with their chemistry and fun, light story lines. Murder? Sure. But it’s definitely a comedic drama – it feels a bit like a romantic comedy movie turned into a TV series. Sign me up.

On tonight’s episode, “Take Two,” the former star of cop series shadows a private investigator as part of a plan to restart her stalled career.

See if you’ll take the case tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Match Game & Beat Bobby Flay.

Tonight, after nine seasons, it’s finally time to say goodbye to the Hecks as ABC airs a special one-hour series finale of The Middle. Last week Frankie discovered that Axl had interviewed for a job in Denver. She was worried about having her firstborn leave the nest and attempted to sway Axl from taking the job, including trying to recruit Axl’s girlfriend to give him an ultimatum to stay. Meanwhile, Sue was also sad to say her own goodbye. Sean was leaving for Ghana, and she never told him how she really felt about him. Sue tried to stop by his home, but he wasn’t there, so she stuffed the snow globe into his packed bag, along with a note.

Tonight, the series comes to an end, and as the Hecks says goodbye to Axl, the viewers say goodbye to the whole family, who have been a fun part of our lives for the past nine years. Tonight’s series finale is a perfect hour of television, keeping the episode primarily dialogue-driven and all about the family. The characters have lots of heartfelt moments with one another, while also making us laugh. The episode is also filled with callbacks to lots of the fun things that have happened on the series over the years and includes some fun guest appearances that longtime fans will appreciate. Much of the episode revolves around a family car trip, and while we’ve seen many of these over the course of the series, this may very well be the funniest. I am really going to miss this show in the fall!

How will the rest of the family react to the news that Axl is leaving? And will Sue ever get a chance to profess her love to Sean? Don’t miss tonight’s one-hour series finale and your chance to say goodbye to the Hecks!

On tonight’s finale, “A Heck of a Ride,” a Heck leaves the nest as the family takes a road trip to Denver, where Axl will start his new job – and new life away from home.

Say goodbye to a heck of a family (see what I did there?) tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Flash, The 100, Legion, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Tonight, the fourteenth season of Grey’s Anatomy comes to a close, as we say goodbye to at least two characters. Last week the episode started off on a happy note, with April sending out the invitations for Alex and Jo’s wedding. However, shortly afterwards, Matthew and April were involved in a car accident. Matthew showed up at the ER but didn’t know where April was. Owen headed out to search for Kepner and discovered her body unconscious and hypothermic in a ravine. It looked like this was the way that April was going to be written out of the show, but after three grueling hours, the doctors finally managed to revive her, and she appeared to be OK. Meanwhile, Arizona gave her notice to Bailey, noting that she would be moving to New York for the sake of her daughter, Sofia. Fortunately, Arizona’s former mentor, Dr. Herman, had returned to the hospital for a treatment, learned of this, and offered Arizona a job where she could work from New York.

It’s always disappointing to see main characters leave a long-running series, and I’ve really grown to enjoy April and Arizona. I’m really happy they didn’t end up killing off Kepner last week, though I’m curious to see how she will leave the series and how that affects the remaining characters. Will these be the only two exits from the series, or what other surprises await? Also, there have been quite a few weddings on this show over the years, and things never seem to go as planned, so will there be some hitch that prevents Alex and Jo from getting hitched?

On tonight’s finale, “All of Me,” the doctors attend Alex and Jo’s wedding, and things do not go as planned. Meanwhile, the stress from the past year has taken a toll on Bailey, and she will re-evaluate some of her decisions.

See if Alex and Jo actually get married and how April leaves the hospital tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces, Gotham, Arrow, and Imposters.

Tonight, NBC airs the 2-hour season (possibly series) finale of Timeless. Last week, Lucy, Rufus, Wyatt, and Jiya traveled back to 1981, the day of the attempted assassination of President Reagan. They assumed Rittenhouse’s target was the president but were surprised to learn that they were trying to kill a young Agent Christopher so that she wouldn’t be around in the future to form the Time Team. During the mission, the team discovered that Rittenhouse was forcing people to act as sleeper agents, sending them into the past, to await activation for unknown missions. Meanwhile, in the bunker, Mason & Christopher remained suspicious of Jessica’s return and tried to figure out the reason Rittenhouse saved her. Once the crew returned, Wyatt got a double-whammy of surprises. Jessica revealed that her brother Kevin was still alive – but in Wyatt’s reality, Kevin had died of leukemia when he was three. And then Jessica also revealed that she was pregnant.

Why did Rittenhouse save Jessica, and is she working for them? Why did they save her brother, and what does he have to do with all of this? Can Jiya’s visions of the future be changed, or is Rufus doomed to die in the Wild West? (It seems easy enough for him to just avoid ever going back to that time period!) At the time I’m writing this, NBC still has not announced the fate of the series, even though the network will be announcing its Fall schedule on Monday morning. Tonight’s finale is a fun, exciting, and action-packed 2 hours. This show has found a great mix of action, drama and humor, and I hope we get to see more. Unfortunately, the season ends in an amazing cliffhanger, so I really hope we get a third season to see what happens next. Fingers crossed that at the time you are reading this, the series has already been renewed for a third season!

On tonight’s episode, “The General; Chinatown,” the team partners with Harriet Tubman to thwart Rittenhouse’s plan to alter the outcome of the Civil War; Jiya escapes from Rittenhouse but is stranded in 1888 with no way home; the fractured team goes back to save her.

See how the season (series?) ends tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Deception, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Fear the Walking Dead, Killing Eve, Worst Cooks in America, Trust, Westworld, and Silicon Valley.

The big day is finally here on The Big Bang Theory, the one we’ve been waiting eight years for: Sheldon and Amy are finally getting married! Last week, Sheldon learned from his mom that she wouldn’t attend the wedding if he didn’t invite his brother, Georgie. Sheldon whined and complained but finally dragged Leonard to Texas with him to ask his brother in person since Georgie wouldn’t take his calls. Turned out Georgie (now George) is the tire king (or doctor…since that’s what his chain of stores is called) of the region, and the reason he refused to go to the wedding was that he felt he’d had to sacrifice and put up with too much when growing up, since their parents (and then their mother once their father passed away) focused so much on Sheldon, and Sheldon never appreciated it or thanked George even after all these years. Leonard and George bonded over some of the pains that come with being friends/family with Sheldon, and Leonard gave Sheldon some hard truths about what it was really like for the rest of his family growing up. Sheldon and George had some good bonding time and George agreed to come to the wedding. Jerry O’Connell was great at George, and the whole story line was sweet.

Elsewhere, Bernie and Howard’s kids got pink eye…and gave it to Howard…who ended up giving it to everyone but Sheldon & Leonard, who were out of town…and Penny, who somehow was able to escape it. Even Amy suffered, and being a week before the wedding, she was NOT happy about it. It was all gross yet very funny, especially since I had to deal with that ickiness a few times growing up! Luckily it turned out to be bacterial, which meant they could all get on antibiotics and get it taken care of in a few days. Knowing germaphobe Sheldon wouldn’t return home if he knew, she hid it from him when they talked via webcam and convinced him to stay in Texas for a few days longer. LOL

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it really was worth the long wait, in my opinion. There are great guest stars, lots of laughs, and some really, really sweet moments – one in particular between Sheldon and Amy, not counting their vows, which were amazing. I loved it!

On tonight’s season finale, “The Bow Tie Asymmetry,” when Amy’s parents and Sheldon’s family arrive for the wedding, everybody is focused on making sure all goes according to plan – everyone except the bride and groom. (I won’t list the new guest stars, in case you haven’t seen it yet, so you won’t be spoiled. But returning guests include Stuart, Kripke, Wil Wheaton, Bert, Denise, and Sheldon’s mother, sister, and brother, Mary, Missy, and George.)

Don’t miss the biggest event of the season tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Fire, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.
