The last episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was epic – not only was it another fun Halloween episode that included the precinct facing off with one another trying to win the annual Halloween Heist, which brought back Fake Charles, Terry lifting a hugely heavy server, and everyone trying to outdo the others…but Jake actually proposed to Amy! At first she thought it was a play to win the heist, but when she realized he was serious, she said yes! It was SO cute! Like I said… Epic!

On tonight’s episode, “Bad Beat,” to track down the infamous arms dealer Dan “Daniel” Valdano (guest star David Figlioli, Murder in the First), Jake and Terry go undercover at an illegal gambling club, but when Holt gets involved to coach the two in the art of poker, his addiction resurfaces. Meanwhile, Boyle buys a food truck that was formerly used in a brutal string of murders without telling his investor (Amy), and Hitchcock and Scully challenge Rosa to a “Butt-lympics.”

See Amy’s reaction to the murder truck and find out who wins the “Butt-lympics” tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, The Little Couple, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

On last week’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jake was happy to be out of jail and back at work, but he was tired of being assigned to desk duty. However, in order to get back in the field and work on a real case, he needed to pass an evaluation, and the person giving that evaluation was Captain Holt. Even though Jake bungled the robbery case he was working on, Captain Holt was pleased by his new outlook on work and putting the case first and cleared Peralta for active duty. But Jake decided he needed some more time behind a desk first. Meanwhile, Rosa thought Pimento was cheating on her and recruited Amy and Terry to help investigate. It turned out that he was just taking Spanish lessons in order to impress Rosa’s father. However, she had already decided to call off their relationship, and Pimento didn’t take the news well.

Tonight is the show’s annual Halloween Heist episode, which is usually one of the highlights of each season. The writers always throw in a lot of fun twists and misdirections that keep you guessing as to who is aligned with whom and what is actually going on. I never know who is going to win the contest each year until the final moments when everything is revealed, and then I realize that so much more had been going on that I didn’t even notice…and I want to immediately rewatch the episode again to catch it all!

On tonight’s episode, “HalloVeen,” the Nine-Nine embarks on its fifth annual Halloween Heist and, as usual, everybody has a plan and no one is safe. Relationships and friendships are tested as the title “Amazing Human Slash Genius” must be snagged by midnight, leaving everyone pitted against each other.

See who takes home the title tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

ABC’s Tuesday comedy block is one of my favorites, and tonight new comedy The Mayor joins the lineup. Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall, Search Party) is a struggling 27-year-old rapper from California who decides to enter his local mayoral race in order to get some free promotion for his forthcoming album. However, when he ends up beating the incumbent (David Spade, Rules of Engagement), his mother Dina (Yvette Nicole Brown, Community) urges him to take the job seriously and use his new position to make a difference for his community. Aiding Courtney in this new political endeavor are his best friends Marcel (T.K. Clifton) & Jermaine (Bernard David Jones, Meet the Browns), and Valentina (Lea Michele, Glee, Scream Queens), the former mayor’s campaign manager.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere — this show has that perfect blend of humor and heart that the ABC comedies are known for. It’s just a fun, family friendly comedy. I’ve always enjoyed Yvette Nicole Brown’s work, so I’m happy to see her in yet another sitcom — and the same goes for Lea Michelle. This series looks like it will make a great addition to ABC’s Tuesday comedy lineup.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Courtney runs for mayor as a publicity stunt and unexpectedly wins the election.

Cast your vote tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30c.

Tonight, The Mick returns to FOX to kick off its second season. In the first season, reckless black sheep Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) was forced to care for her niece and two nephews when her wealthy sister went on the lam. What resulted was a hilariously inappropriate Uncle Buck-style comedy that quickly became one of my favorite new comedies of last season. The first season of the series ended with a bang, literally. The Pembertons returned, only to get caught by the police, and in a huge cliffhanger, the mansion went up in flames.

I can’t wait to see where the show goes from here. Without the huge mansion, where are Mickey and the kids going to stay? Do they have any money stashed away, and if not, who is going to take it harder — Mickey or the kids?!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Hotel,” Mickey and the kids are forced to downgrade after their financial advisor cuts them off due to excessive spending; Chip learns tricks from Jimmy on how to live in a luxurious hotel.

Catch tonight’s episode on FOX at 9/8c.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is always so much fun, and last week was a prime example. Who else loved meeting Capt. Holt’s mother? LOL The Honorable Laverne Holt was basically just Raymond Holt as a slightly shorter, slightly older female. They talked the same, thought the same, and reacted the same to everything. Really hysterical. Jake got the honor (only after Amy let her nerves and excitement get the better of her and reacted to the chance to help by dorking out…) of helping when Mrs. Holt’s apartment was robbed. He and Capt. Holt figured out it was robbed while she was at Wine Club, and they went undercover at the next meeting. When the apartment that Jake gave the address of to the hostess was broken into, he realized it was the hostess and her boyfriend, and they were arrested. Of course, the best story line for that episode was Capt. Holt realizing his mother was dating and she hadn’t told him. He reacted more strongly than we’ve ever seen him – stopping the car in the middle of the road, getting out, and calmly walking away. LOL The side stories of Terry, Charles, and Rosa remodeling the breakroom was great (what the heck was their remodel, anyway? Crazy… LOL), as was Scully and Hitchcock’s reaction to it. Needless to say, seeing them rubbing all over the new couch and stuff was…vaguely disturbing!

Then in the second episode, Jake and Rosa got involved in a case with their idol, Lieutenant Melanie Hawkins. Unfortunately, the show dealt a huge shocker to Jake (& presumably Rosa, although we didn’t see her reaction), right after they were invited to be on her team, when they learned that Lieutenant Hawkins is a dirty cop. Instead of actually looking for the bank robbers like they are supposed to be…they ARE the bank robbers. Eek! My favorite part of that episode, though, was Scully and Hitchcock fighting like little boys after Scully blew off Hitchcock for their weekly brunch or whatever in order to spend time with his new girlfriend. They had a ranch dressing fight (ew. LOL), called each other names, and basically acted like babies. Nothing Charles or Terry could do would make a dent in their fighting. Finally, Gina came in and said they were acting like animals so they needed to be treated like animals. When she yelled and clapped her hands at them, then gave them treats after they apologized, it worked perfectly. LOL

So now that Jake and Rosa know Hawkins is dirty, will they try to take her down in tonight’s double-episode finale? Of course they will. You couldn’t expect anything less, could you? Things won’t go as planned, I promise. I’ve seen both episodes, and they truly live up to the fun and excitement, as well as the jaw-dropping moments of shock and surprise that Brooklyn Nine-Nine likes to fling at the viewers on their finales. LOL

On tonight’s episodes, “The Bank Job/Crime & Punishment,” after discovering a dangerous secret, Jake and Rosa call for back-up from Holt and Pimento (guest star Jason Mantzoukas). Meanwhile, Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend (guest star Ryan Phillipe). Then, Jake and Rosa are framed for a crime they didn’t commit, it’s up to the Nine-Nine to find a way to bust them out. Gina Gershon also guest stars.

Find out what happens with Jake and Rosa and why Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, Great News, Prison Break, & Chopped.
