It has been a couple weeks since we’ve had a new episode of MacGyver, and I’m starting to go through withdrawal. Thankfully we will all get our fix tonight. This show not only has action and humor, but the cast has incredible chemistry. Jack leaving was hard, but in the end the team is adjusting quite well and I really like Desi. She has a unique chemistry with Mac that I hope will end up in a relationship for those two.

On tonight’s episode, “Murdoc + Helman + Hit,” when Nicholas Helman resurfaces to carry out a killing spree, the Phoenix is forced to get help from the one person who knows him best… His protégé, Murdoc.

To see if the team can get the help they need from Murdoc, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, and Proven Innocent.

Last week on SEAL Team, Bravo headed to the Afghan side of the Afghanistan/Iran border in order to take out the financier/mastermind behind several terrorist attacks, who was going to be in a little “town” just on the other side of the border. It was supposed to be a quick in/quick out visit for the team, with no one laying eyes on them, because they didn’t have permission to be in Iran and certainly didn’t get permission from the Iranians to kill a man in their country. It was quite a dangerous situation to be in, and unfortunately, two kids from Iran were flying a kite that went down right on top of Jason and Ray, and they were spotted. Ray took the shot just after the kids made it back to the town and notified the men there, and our guys came under fire. They were able to fight back until our waiting Marines from inside Afghanistan came to the rescue, laying down fire so our guys could load up on the waiting transport, and everyone got out safely. Unfortunately, we learned then that Ray just clipped the guy he had taken the shot at and the guy was still alive. That was a blow to both Ray, who is having a crisis of faith, and to Clay, who believed he should have been the one to take the shot.

Ray’s not doing so well lately. He’s taking something (Pain pills? Depression meds? I don’t know…), and he’s going to the bar instead of being home with Naima and the kids. I’m not really liking his character at the moment. So we’ll see where things go with him. And now Davis has told the others about OCS… She has their support, but I’m worried. Is she leaving the show?! I haven’t heard anything about that, but since she said that was her last mission with the team… It’ll be interesting to see how that story line goes! And Jason met up with Adam’s wife/widow, Victoria, at the store, and she basically asked him out to dinner. Unfortunately, at dinner, he admitted that he can’t see her right now as anything but Adam’s wife, letting her know things wouldn’t be going further for them (for now…). He then went to the bar and found a woman who’d come on to him previously, and they went back to the back and had sex. He needs to get back out there, but I don’t like that that’s how he did it. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Dirt, Dirt, Gucci,” as Bravo Team prepares for what they expect to be a “cushy” deployment with the luxury of staying in a hotel in the Philippines, Jason tries to find a way to pay for Emma’s college.

See if the deployment’s as “cushy” as the team thinks it will be tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Med, The Goldbergs, Battle of the Ages, Schooled, Chicago Fire, Dinner Takes All, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Chicago PD, & Whiskey Cavalier.

Tonight, USA Network kicks off the new reality series Growing Up Chrisley. This spin-off finds two of the Chrisley children heading from Nashville to L.A. to try to launch their own careers. Todd had been trying to get Chase and Savannah to follow in his footsteps in the real estate business, but neither of them is interested. Chase wants to pursue a career in acting, while Savannah wants to launch her own cosmetic and fragrance line.

The new series feels very much like the original – tonight’s premiere is pretty much a normal episode of Chrisley Knows Best, with the kids trying to convince their father to let them go on their adventure. He ultimately agrees to a 90-day trial period, with the stipulation that their grandmother join them on their road trip. And so the second episode is more of the same, with Chase and Savannah on a road trip with Nanny Faye. It’s not until the third episode that the new series really kicks off, and Chase and Savannah move to Los Angeles and start on their quest to launch their careers.

The new series is worth a look for fans of the original show, but it may take a few weeks until you see what the new series is really going to be like.

On tonight’s premiere, “Chase & Savannah Fly the Nest,” Chase and Savannah Chrisley embark on a cross-country move to prove they’re independent grown-ups.

See how Chase and Savannah convince their dad of their plans tonight on USA Network at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, and The Village.

You know, it doesn’t even matter what happened on the previous episode of NCIS: LA, although there were some great moments, such as Deeks and Roberta at the bar with the health inspector…and Deeks dancing with his mom, convincing her that he didn’t care how good or bad she was, that he wanted to dance with her at his wedding regardless. Another interesting thing was having Nicole DeChamps back…and seeing how things seem to be going between her and Sam. I like that he’s beginning to show some interest. He loved his wife and has grieved for her, but if he’s ready to move on, I’m not going to be unhappy.

But we all know that if you’re a fan of the show – or probably even if you aren’t now but were – then you’re going to be glued to your TV tonight because finally, FINALLY, Kensi and Deeks are getting married! Yes, I’m fangirl squee-ing right along with you guys. It promises to be such a huge episode, with not only the wedding itself but also a couple of unexpected guests (we know one, although I won’t spoil here in case you don’t know and don’t want to know, and there’s strong evidence to support the assumption of the second) AND finally the return of and the long-awaited opening of “the box.” I can only hope it doesn’t turn out to be a letdown – either the wedding or the contents of the box! I don’t have ANY thoughts on what could be in there, but I really hope it’s worth the seasons-long buildup! Besides all that, we finally get to meet all of Kensi’s friends: Cat, Mindy, Mandy, Tiffany, and Tiffany! LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Til Death Do Us Part,” after months of planning, the NCIS family celebrates the wedding of Kensi and Deeks. Also, an old acquaintance pays Deeks a surprise visit on his wedding day, and he isn’t alone.

Celebrate with me tonight as we watch Kensi and Deeks say their vows tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Family Food Showdown, Buddy vs. Duff, & Private Eyes.

We get two episodes of Hawaii Five-0 tonight – the second directed by series star Alex O’Loughlin. Fun! But first…let’s talk about last week’s episode, which was exciting because it coupled a hurricane with a drug lord being hunted by an assassin. Steve was especially unhappy hearing that the drug lord was going to be brought to Iolani Palace to wait out the storm, not only because of all the civilians who were taking shelter there but because he knew a family that had been killed by one of the bad guy’s bombs. He felt a little better later on after learning the guy was turning State’s evidence about rival cartels. Unfortunately, they almost lost him when they figured out an assassin from one of those rival cartels had snuck in to hunt him down and take him out – with the assistance of one of the FBI team escorting the bad guy. And that assassin stabbed a young deputy. We never did learn if that poor guy lived or died. As for the assassin and the drug lord, the assassin was killed and the drug lord tried to escape, nearly getting killed by the wrong FBI agent, but the team saved him and then took him back into custody.

As for the rest of the team… Tani & Junior were sent out into the early bits of the storm to help rescue any stranded civilians or anyone who was refusing to evacuate the required evac zones. Unfortunately for Tani, she stumbled into a stash house and got tied up, only to talk the guy’s kid into untying her. Then she learned what the place was, right before the even worse bad guys showed up to get to the money (and drugs?) kept there at the house, and she had the family (the ones who had originally tied her up) hide in the closet while she took on the three guys alone. She was just about to have to fight it out with the last one after running out of ammunition, but Junior showed up just in time and shot the guy. And then there was Danny…who stayed safe at his house with Rachel and Charlie (Grace was on a college tour or something in California.). Why Danny was able to stay home when they were so busy at the Palace, I don’t know. But whatever. There were a lot of sparks between Rachel and Danny, so we’ll see if they’re leading them to get back together this season or not.

On tonight’s first episode, “Hapai ke kuko, hanau ka hewa (When Covetousness is Conceived, Sin is Born),” when the top salesperson for a beauty company/pyramid scheme is murdered, Five-0 sifts through a long list of possible suspects who would want her dead. Also, Adam befriends a homeless man estranged from his family. Matthew Lawrence guest stars.

Then on the second episode, “E’ao lu’au a kualima (Offer Young Taro Leaves To),” Junior is torn between his duties as a member of Five-0 and his feelings for his former girlfriend when her new love, the father of her son, is one of the culprits in a bank-heist-turned-homicide. J.J. Soria guest stars.

Don’t miss a fun two hours in Hawaii tonight on CBS starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MacGyver, The Cool Kids, & Proven Innocent.
