It’s another night of fun cooking shows for me, and first up is the season premiere of The Great American Baking Show on ABC. Last season was scrapped after the season premiere when judge Johnny Iuzzini came under fire for sexual harassment (unrelated to this show). Because of that, we missed out on watching this show last year. So it’s been almost a year now since we last saw it, and now we get to meet a new cast as well as a new host and judge!

Ayesha Curry won’t be back as host. Alongside Anthony “Spice” Adams will be Emma Bunton…otherwise known as Baby Spice in the Spice Girls group. And joining last season’s judge (& judge on The Great British Baking Show!) Paul Hollywood is fabulous pastry chef Sherry Yard, who also judged Halloween Baking Championship. I don’t know if I care about either of hosts – I don’t know them well enough yet to – but I really enjoy both judges, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what they have up their sleeves for the bakers this season.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Cake and Pastry Week,” it’s on your marks, get set, bake…slices of cake, and sweet and savory pastries.

Meet the contestants and new judge and host tonight on ABC starting at 9/8c.

Tonight, Bravo’s scripted series Imposters returns for its second season. Last season, Ezra, Richard, and Julia discovered they were all duped by the same woman. Maddie, along with partner Max, had tricked all three of them into falling in love with her and marrying her, only to have their hearts broken and bank accounts emptied as she suddenly disappeared soon afterwards. The strangers met and swapped their stories and decided to track down this con artist. As they went on their road trip together, the trio learned the art of the grift but decided to only use their newfound powers on people who acted like jerks. Once they tracked Maddie down, they discovered she was already working on her next victim, Patrick, who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent who was actually trying to con Maddie. He wanted to get the people Maddie worked for. However, as the FBI laid out their trap, Ezra, Richard, and Julia stole the $1.4M diamond engagement ring Patrick had given to Maddie and took off. Meanwhile, Maddie and Max also disapppeared, each going their separate way. So now all five of these grifters have both the FBI and Maddie’s former employers out to get them.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first season. I loved the chemistry between the three jilted lovers turned bumbling thieves. They aren’t the brightest of criminals, and they let their emotions get in the way, but they seem to have luck on their side. As the new season opens, the trio are headed back to Richard’s hometown of Scottsdale to try to sell the ring; Maddie is hiding out in a small town trying to lie low for a while; Max is getting drunk and driving around aimlessly; and FBI agent Patrick is on desk duty after losing the ring.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. The various groups of characters start off divided but will no doubt find their paths crossing once again as the season progresses. The series still has a great mix of humor and drama, with lots of suspenseful twists. This show is great at ending episodes with a big cliffhanger that makes you eager to see the what happens next, and tonight’s premiere is no different.

On tonight’s episode, “Fillion Bollar King,” the Bumblers head to Richard’s hometown in an attempt to sell the ring they stole; Maddie learns that leaving her past behind is harder than she thought.

To catch up with all five con artists, tune in to Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Superstore, A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Champions, Gotham, and Arrow.

Tonight, after three years, Psych returns to USA Network with Psych: The Movie! For eight seasons (and a musical) we followed the adventures of fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his slightly more serious best friend Gus (Dulé Hill). As the series ended, it was finally time for Shawn and Gus to go their separate ways. Gus had found his dream job, and Shawn had moved to San Francisco, where girlfriend Juliet (Maggie Lawson) and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) had already relocated. Shawn planned to open up a new detective agency, and to his surprise, Gus had quit his job and also headed to San Francisco. Shawn finally proposed to Juliet, but as he was handing her the ring, someone grabbed it and ran off.

So, what has happened in the three years since we last saw these characters? Did Juliet say yes? Are she and Shawn married? Are Shawn and Gus back to their old psychic detective tricks? Psych is one of my all-time favorite shows. I can re-watch episodes anytime and still laugh out loud. While TV is getting darker and grittier these days, this series was from USA Network’s lighter, blue sky programming era. It was so smartly written, with lots humor and fun pop culture references mixed in. The buddy relationship between Shawn and Gus is what all friendships should be like! I haven’t seen the film yet, so I’m just as excited as all the other Psych-O’s out there to see what this new adventure holds. I’m sure it’s going to be a hilarious, fun ride, and I hope this is just one of many Psych movies to come!

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got the opportunity to speak with the cast. They talked about what it was like returning to their characters, and they gave some hints as to what we can expect from tonight’s movie, including some of the amazing guest stars. You can find my videos from the press room at NoReruns.net. (http://www.noreruns.net/2017/08/15/psych-movie-press-room-san-diego-comic-con-2017/)

On tonight’s movie, after three years, the gang reunite when an assailant targets one of their own.

Catch up with Shawn & the gang tonight on USA Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Great American Baking Show, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Gotham, The Orville, Top Chef, Van Helsing, Ghost Wars, and Chrisley Knows Best.

It’s been way too long (January 1!) since we last saw Brooklyn Nine-Nine, especially since they ended it on such a huge cliffhanger! Gina was hit by a bus! I’d actually forgotten that until I started watching the screener for this new episode. Then it hit me. (Doh. 😉 ) That was the episode that dealt with the prison break, where Amy and Jake were competing to see who could capture the most – the loser would then move into the winner’s apartment. Even though Jake won, he was very sweet (and honest! LOL) when he conceded that Amy’s place was better and he wanted to move in with her. It was a great moment for them and a fun episode overall…until Gina walked out and was hit by a bus!

Thankfully, the show is back tonight. I really missed it, and I was very happy with the new episode. We get an answer right off as to Gina’s fate (It’s a comedy. She’s a major character. Do you really think she’s going to die?!), and the episode as a whole is just as funny as always, especially because we see not only one character’s ex, but TWO!

On tonight’s episode, “The Audit,” with the crime rate lowered, Brooklyn will be shutting down one of its precincts – permanently. The Nine-Nine is confident they will be evaluated fairly, until the official auditor turns out to be Amy’s ex-boyfriend, Teddy (guest star Kyle Bornheimer). The whole squad then must band together to try to save the precinct. Jama Williamson also guest stars.

To see what Teddy decides about the Nine-Nine, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Prison Break, Trial & Error, Imaginary Mary, & Chopped.

I’m really enjoying Bravo’s delightful new scripted series, Imposters, which follows both a team of con artists working on their latest job, as well as a misfit trio of past marks who have teamed up to find the woman who married each of them and took off with their money. Last week, Maddie went to a cookout at Patrick’s and almost missed an important date with her latest mark, Gary Heller. This caused some concern with the Doctor – the man running the con operation. After Max confirmed that Heller stole $2M from the Doctor, the mysterious man in charge told Max that he would be sending Lenny Cohen to take care of Maddie’s distraction. Meanwhile, Ezra, Richie, and Jules compared their stories to try to figure out where Maddie might be. They discovered that the similarities in the lies she told each of them pointed to Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and so that is their next stop in the hunt for Maddie.

This show is so much fun. I’m especially enjoying the comedic misadventures of the scorned lovers who have teamed up to find the woman who conned them and how they’re becoming con artists themselves as they try to obtain the money to fund their quest for revenge. Who is this Lenny Cohen, and does she plan to kill Patrick to keep Maddie on target? How is Maddie going to react when she hears that the Doctor has sent someone after Patrick? Who is this mysterious Doctor, what does he want, and what leverage does he have on Max, Sally, and Maddie to keep them working for him? Will our trio manage to track down Maddie, or will they find yet another conned spouse at their next location? I’m enjoying this show so much. I can’t wait to see what happens tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Cohen. Lenny Cohen.,” Ezra, Richard, and Jules visit Maddie’s parents. Meanwhile, Sally makes a discovery with dangerous consequences, and Maddie inches closer to Patrick as Lenny Cohen (Uma Thurman) arrives to set things straight.

To see if Lenny takes care of Patrick, tune in to Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, New Girl, The Mick, The Flash, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Stranded with a Million Dollars, Face Off, The Detour, Teachers, and Chrisley Knows Best.
