Tonight, FOX kicks off the new paranormal comedy Ghosted, starring Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Craig Robinson (The Office) as mismatched partners recruited by a top-secret government agency to search for a missing agent. Max (Scott) is a brilliant but disgraced astrophysicist who now works at a bookstore. The former Stanford professor lost his credibility after he started making claims that his wife had been abducted by aliens. Meanwhile, Leroy (Robinson) was the best missing persons detective the LAPD ever had, but now he’s a divorced dad working as a mall cop. Heading up the Bureau Underground is Captain Ava Lafrey (Ally Walker, Colony, Longmire), technician Barry Shaw (Adeel Akhtar, Unforgotten, The Night Manager), and Agent Annie (Amber Stevens West, The Carmichael Show).

The series has a bit of an X-Files/Mulder & Scully vibe with the believer and the skeptic partnered up to investigate paranormal cases. Adam Scott and Craig Robinson have great chemistry and comedic timing, which makes this show a lot of fun. There is also a bit of an 80s throwback vibe to the show, especially in the soundtrack and score. The end of tonight’s premiere definitely leaves you wanting to see more, and I look forward to seeing what strange cases and misadventures these two get involved in in future episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a key member of a top-secret government agency goes missing, so cynical former detective Leroy and genius “true believer” Max are recruited to find him. The two polar opposites must work together to find the agent, while uncovering possible alien activity and chilling “unexplained” paranormal events in their own city of Los Angeles.

See if this new comedy’s for you tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’m really enjoying having Philip Winchester on my TV each week, and Chicago Justice has been a great fit for him, even though he’s mostly been doing action shows/characters up till now. Last week was a tough one. An ex-Navy SEAL was killed shortly before he was supposed to get married. It turned out the killers were two of his best friends, his SEAL teammates, who killed him because he was writing a tell-all book about a botched mission they went on while on active duty and the fact that the Navy had covered up what really happened. During the investigation & subsequent trial, Stone was ordered by his boss not to offer the video (of the failed mission) the victim had kept secret, but he was able to skirt around that when one of the two killers mentioned the mission while on the stand. So instead of the video, the guy told what had happened, which got Stone around his boss’s orders – barely. Jefferies wasn’t happy, but he didn’t fire Stone, so…

One thing I don’t understand is the purpose of the DA’s investigators. Don’t get me wrong… I love Antonio and like Laura Nagel. But what do they do that the other police (the non-DA’s investigators) don’t? And like, on the description for tonight’s ep, why are they on scene of an apparent suicide? If it’s suicide, it wouldn’t be a case for the DA, so why are the DA’s investigators there? Ah well. Just a thought I had.

On tonight’s episode, “Dead Meat,” thirty miles outside of Chicago, the cancer riddled body of Chicago PD Officer Tim Cody is found dead in a bathtub. An apparent suicide. But when Antonio and Nagel arrive on scene, they quickly determine his death was murder. The trail leads to an old nemesis of Stone, and he has to make a new law to put him away. Michael Rispoli and Sofia Milos guest star.

Find out how Stone gets the bad guy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, NCIS: LA, Spring Baking Championship, & Cake Wars.

The Librarians Episode 301 "And the Rise of Chaos" 5/6/16 IMG_8411I’m so excited because tonight is the season premiere of The Librarians on TNT. On the last season finale, the group had their hands full battling Prospero, who was wreaking havoc with modern technology because he wanted to create an idyllic forest utopia, no matter the cost. To stop him, Flynn and Baird had to travel back in time to 1611, while the others battled him in the present time. Fortunately, they were able to defeat him, which meant the season ended on a high note. The team is working together well, and at least in the first few episodes, Flynn is still working side by side with them. It’ll be interesting to see how much of the season Noah Wyle is around for!

On tonight’s episode, “And the Rise of Chaos,” when the Egyptian God of Chaos inhabits a human body, he attempts to release Pure Evil into the world, thus beginning the final battle of Good vs. Evil. In order to stop him, the Librarians must decipher a series of clues within a science museum, including a mysterious warning spoken by exhibit mannequins that have come to life.

See if the Librarians can stop Pure Evil from taking over tonight on TNT at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, NCIS: LA, Holiday Baking Championship, & Clash of the Grandmas.

ncisla925smallToday is my favorite day of the entire TV season. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration…but only slight! Tonight is the 2-hour season premiere of NCIS: LA, and it promises to be a good one! The LA branch of NCIS has been looking for a mole in the organization for a while now, and tonight it all comes to a head when higher-ups decide it’s time for someone else to be in charge and find the mole. How that will affect the team – and for how long – I don’t know. But something else that is affecting them is Daniela Ruah’s pregnancy. Kensi will be in every episode, but only because Daniela and (at least…) Eric (Deeks) filmed scenes in advance from each episode. Something huge happens with Kensi in this premiere, which keeps her out of the office/field for a while. I’m sure that means we’ll be seeing more of Nell in the field, partnered with Deeks, which should be a lot of fun. But it also means that this season should be an interesting one.

And don’t forget that because of football, Sunday shows on CBS tend to have erratic start times. CBS has tried to help by pushing everything back thirty minutes, which means shows will automatically start at 8:30/7:30c instead of 8/7c. But if you’re planning on recording NCIS: LA, Madam Secretary, or Elementary, I would make sure to record an hour or even two hours over, just to be sure you get it all. Trust me, I had to do that more than I’d like to remember the last few seasons!

On tonight’s two-hour premiere, “High-Value Target,” and “Belly of the Beast,” after NCIS fails to locate a mole in the department, Under Secretary of Defense Corbin Duggan (Jackson Hurst) insists on new leadership and takes over the Los Angeles unit from Hetty and Granger. Also, the team travels to Syria to apprehend a High Value Target, where one team member is severely injured when the mission goes awry.

See what happens when the office gets taken over and the team goes to Syria tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Great Food Truck Race, Cooks vs Cons, & Quantico.

bobsburgers1018smallTonight’s annual Halloween-themed episode of Bob’s Burgers airs at a special later time, and this one may be my favorite one of these episodes yet! The Belchers are such an entertaining TV family – while what they say is often ridiculous, they still feel like very real characters, and this is very much due to the amazing chemistry between the voice actors. And the writing is so witty and hilarious that I always have a smile throughout each episode. While I love all of the characters, Gene is definitely my favorite, and he is on fire in tonight’s episode. Well, not literally – though I wouldn’t put it past these writers – but he does have so many great one-liners! And to top it all off, at the end of tonight’s episode Boyz 4 Now makes a return appearance for a delightfully cheesy music video.

Bob’s Burgers is always a highlight of my Sunday night TV viewing, but after tonight, the show will be off the air for a few weeks, when it returns with a Thanksgiving episode (already?!). While the series is currently only in its fifth season, it has already been picked up through its eighth season! So I look forward to plenty more fun Belcher family adventures to come…and to seeing how they top tonight’s hilarious Halloween episode next year!

On tonight’s episode, “Hauntening,” as the Belchers ready for Halloween, Louise reveals that she’s never been scared by anything, so the family pays a visit to a spooky haunted house, where things start going bump in the night.

See if the haunted house scares Louise tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Quantico, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Talking Dead, The Leftovers, Project Greenlight, Homeland, and Robot Chicken.
