The Sara Carter story line on NCIS was a good one last week. It showed a sweet side of Reeves, when we learned about him and his mom being homeless for a bit when he was young and how he now helps out at a home for homeless vets and their kids. It all ended up being about a mother trying to protect her daughter from pain, since Sara’s mother was trying to find out where her daughter’s migraine pain meds disappeared to and in the process realized there was a big prescription drug theft ring going on and that’s why she was killed. But it was good for Sara to finally get some peace about her mother’s murder.

Last week was also Pauley Perrette’s next-to-last episode. I thought we’d get more of an Abby-centric story, so I was disappointed with the little Abby we got. Sure, it was fun seeing the others buttering her up to try to snag the second spot for dinner at a new ice restaurant that she won reservations for. But until the very end of the episode, it was just another normal ep for Abby. Of course, the end… After she picked Reeves to go with her to dinner, they were walking away when a guy with a gun demanded they give him their wallet & purse. Reeves immediately complied, but Abby, with her big heart, tried to tell the guy that she could and wanted to help him. Reeves gave him Abby’s purse, but the guy still got off a shot when the screen went black.

So did Abby get shot? Reeves? Did it miss them both? Surely they wouldn’t actually kill Abby off, would they? And will we finally get an Abby & Gibbs scene this season?! I guess we’ll find out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Two Steps Back,” when evidence reveals an NCIS team member is a hitman’s latest target, the team must search through old case files to determine who is seeking vengeance.

See if Abby’s actually the hitman’s target tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Roseanne, Chicago Med, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Tonight, the first season of FOX’s hilarious comedy, LA to Vegas, comes to an end. In last week’s episode, Captain Dave insisted that he was over his breakup with Patricia. However, while giving one of his in-flight ads for an escape room-slash-wedding chapel, he lost it, going on an anti-love tirade over the loudspeaker to the passengers. In his anger, he broke a warning light on the flight deck, causing the plane to be grounded for repairs. So he headed off to the casino with Artem and Colin, where he found himself on a roll at the craps table. And with all his winnings, Dave decided that he was going to buy an engagement ring for Patricia. Meanwhile, Ronnie talked to Nichole about Bryan asking her to move in with him. Ronnie was afraid to take this next step, so she started to make a pros and cons list. But when Bryan showed up at the gate, Ronnie told him she wanted to move in with him.

Will Captain Dave go through with his proposal to Patricia, and if so, how will she respond? Is Dave really the marrying kind? How will Ronnie’s decision to move to Las Vegas to live with Bryan change her future? And with everyone else seemingly finding love, when will it be Colin’s turn? I’ve really enjoyed the first season of this wacky airline comedy and look forward to seeing how things are left in tonight’s finale. I really hope this show comes back for another season!

On tonight’s episode, “The Proposal,” Ronnie applies for a job at another airline; against Nichole’s wishes, Dave plans to propose to Patricia; Artem encourages Colin to stand up to his ex-wife.

See where the gang leaves off for the season tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, Rise, New Girl, The Flash, The 100, and Legion.

Last week’s psych case on Chicago Med was heartbreaking. A father brought his (adult) daughter in, claiming he’d found her tied to the bed in his ex-wife’s house. When the mother came rushing in, she explained her daughter was possessed and she was trying to get an exorcism done to her. Of course, in the end Dr. Charles figured out that the young woman had basically just had a psychotic break of sorts after reconnecting with her father after a long time apart…because the father had sexually abused her as a little girl. It was heartbreaking. (And that was just the first father/daughter story of the night. The second was Reese’s father basically “breaking up” with her, telling her he didn’t really love her, didn’t want to see her anymore, didn’t need her for anything, in order to show Dr. Charles that he was self-sufficient. Jeez. Poor Reese…)

The big case of the week, though, was a set of conjoined twin babies. They were gearing up to separate them after a few more weeks, but one of the twins was sick, and after learning that the baby was experiencing heart failure, what to do about it divided the doctors. Leaving the twins joined now would likely kill them both. According to Connor was sure he could get the sick twin better without having to do the separation now. But one of the other doctors thinks that’s too risky and they’re better off doing the separation and having a near 100 percent chance of saving the second baby’s life. The parents agreed to that when Connor was told he couldn’t even give them his option…but he stopped them right before the procedure was about to get underway and told them his opinion, and they agreed to try it. Thankfully, it turned out well and both babies were alive and well to continue the wait for the agreed-upon separation surgery.

And on another sad case, Will’s patient was misdiagnosed as having diverticulitis, when in reality he had sarcoidosis, an inflammatory condition that will require ongoing medication. Unfortunately, the man was upset because he’d had to change their health insurance in order to help pay for their son’s college tuition, so all the tests and stuff Will ran weren’t covered because they were out of network. You couldn’t help but feel bad for the guy.

On the personal side of things, Maggie asked Barry for help in fudging the expiration date on her paramedic’s license, which would mean she wouldn’t be in trouble for doing the tracheotomy in the previous episode, and he agreed. Thankfully it wasn’t needed because the patient’s family backed her, saying she saved their loved one. So Maggie’s back at work. Natalie is still keeping Will at arm’s length, needing space from him. And Ethan’s sister came to him, asking if she could crash with him for a while since she was kicked out of her apartment. She claimed it was because she complained to the manager so often about the water temp or something… But after she had a party at his apartment even after he specifically said not to, begging April to keep it to herself when she found out, I don’t know… Something’s going to happen with her, I think. And finally, Natalie is still giving Will almost a cold shoulder after telling him before that she needs a break. Bah!

On tonight’s episode, “An Inconvenient Truth,” after taking the lead on a surgery, Dr. Bekker feels the heat after something goes wrong. Dr. Manning and Dr. Charles are faced with a tough decision concerning the gender of a 9-year-old girl. April and Dr. Reese rush to find the son of a dying patient. Goodwin’s godson is admitted to the hospital.

Find out what goes wrong during the surgery tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Roseanne, Alex, Inc, LA to Vegas, Splitting Up Together, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Tonight, TBS premieres the new comedy The Last O.G.. Tracy Morgan (30 Rock, SNL) stars as Tray, a man who is released from prison after spending 15 years behind bars for selling drugs. However, he soon discovers that the world has changed a lot while he was in prison. Tray’s Brooklyn neighborhood has been gentrified and no longer resembles the hood he grew up in. His former girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish, The Carmichael Show, Girls Trip) is now married to a white guy (Ryan Gaul, Superstore), who’s been helping to raise the teenage twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray never even knew he had. Now Tray has put his life back together if he wants to be a part of his kids’ lives. Helping Tray adjust to his new life on the outside are his cousin Bobby (Allen Maldonado, black-ish) and halfway house administrator/wannabe comedian Mullins (Cedric the Entertainer).

This series has such a great cast, and it is especially great to see Tracy Morgan doing well and back doing what he does best. Tonight’s premiere primarily just introduces the characters and sets up the show’s premise, but it looks like this should be a really fun and heartwarming show once it gets going. Much like the other TBS comedies, the series will be serialized in its storytelling. Since I am an all or none type of person when it comes to watching a TV series, I definitely prefer this more serialized format, rather than a traditional sitcom that is more of a drop in/drop out setup that resets the status quo each week. I like to see the characters and storyline progress over the course of a season.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” ex-con Tray is shocked to see how much the world has changed when he’s released from prison for good behavior after a 15-year stint.

Catch the premiere tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, Splitting Up Together, For the People, Rise, LA to Vegas, The Mick, Black Lightning, and Legion.

I was a big fan of Roseanne back in the day. There was something just…real about them. They didn’t put on airs, and unlike a lot of shows nowadays, it wasn’t a show about wealthy people and their first-world problems. They were relatable in that the problems they had, I could see myself having those same problems. So when I heard they were bringing it back, I was excited but nervous. Then every little piece of news that came out about it made me happy: same cast, same set, Dan is alive, etc etc etc. Even Johnny Galecki, who is busy over on another network on The Big Bang Theory, is going to be back on an episode as David. And both Beckys are back — the original Becky (Lecy Goranson) is back as Becky, while Sarah Chalke (Becky #2) is guest starring on a few episodes in a special role opposite Goranson. The nostalgia factor is high in this one, I swear. One original character not back is Becky’s husband Mark. The actor, Glenn Quinn, died of a drug overdose in 2002. But Darlene’s son is named Mark after the character, so he’s there in spirit.

Then I saw the first two episodes, and it really blew me away. It’s still the same down to earth, relatable, funny show from the 80s/90s, but they’ve kept it real. Dan and Roseanne are older, so there are health concerns (including Dan wearing a CPAP breathing machine when he sleeps and Roseanne nursing a bad knee), financial and insurance concerns, and adult children/grandchildren moving back in (like is so common now). The snark is still the same, the humor is there, yet everything is updated to 2018: Dan and Roseanne are Trump supporters, Darlene’s son is gender-fluid, and even the opioid crisis plays a part in the new episodes. It’s all really well done and makes me so glad it’s back.

On tonight’s first half hour of the 1-hour episode, “Twenty Years to Life,” Roseanne and Dan adjust to living under the same roof with Darlene and her two children, Harris and Mark, when Darlene loses her job. Meanwhile, Becky announces she is going to be a surrogate to make extra money; and Roseanne and Jackie are at odds with one another. Then in the second half hour, “Dress to Impress,” Darlene’s son, Mark, gets caught with a pocket knife after being bullied on the first day of his new school. Meanwhile, Becky invites Andrea over to meet the family and is nervous to bring her home.

Don’t miss the start of the revival tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
