Tonight, NBC’s dramedy Good Girls returns for its second season, picking up immediately where the first season cliffhanger left off. In the first season, we met a trio of friends who had come on hard times and turned to desperate measures to get some quick cash. Seemingly perfect Detroit housewife Beth (Christina Hendricks, Mad Men) discovered that her husband Dean (Mathew Lillard, Scream) had been cheating on her and had mismanaged their money, putting their car dealership in deep financial trouble. Beth’s sister Annie (Mae Whitman, Parenthood) learned that her ex Gregg (Zach Gilford, Friday Night Lights) wanted custody of their teenage daughter, so she needed money for a lawyer. And their friend Ruby (Retta, Parks and Recreation) needed money fast in order to pay for medical treatments for her seriously ill daughter.

The three women staged an armed robbery at the grocery store where Annie worked but discovered afterwards that the store was being used as a front to launder money for a street gang. The women then found themselves at the mercy of gang leader Rio (Manny Montana, Graceland) and were forced to get involved in even more illegal activities in order to pay him back. Meanwhile, neighbor Mary Pat (Allison Tolman, Fargo) figured out what the ladies were up to and started blackmailing Beth, Annie’s sleazy boss Boomer (David Hornsby, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) was desperately trying to find hard evidence that the woman were behind the robbery, and Ruby’s police officer husband Stan (Reno Wilson, Mike & Molly) learned the truth about what the women were up to. In an attempt to fix their problems, the women decided to once again rob the grocery store, but this time Beth left a folder of evidence for FBI Agent Turner (James Lesure, Men at Work), which implicated Rio and the street gang. However, the plan backfired. The gang was released on bail, and Beth arrived home to find her husband beaten and tied up. Rio was there – he slid a gun to Beth, stating, “You want to be the king, you gotta kill the king.”

Will Rio kill Dean and/or Beth? Or will Beth have the guts to shoot Rio before he has a chance to? How will the women get out of their predicament – they’ve got the gang, blackmailers, the FBI and Boomer all after them? Will Boomer find the evidence he is desperately looking for in order to get revenge on the women for robbing his store and tying him up in the treehouse? And how will Stan deal with his wife’s illegal activities? Most of those questions will be answered in tonight’s season premiere, which contains the same blend of humor and drama that made the first season so great. The writers also find fun new ways to get the women involved in new capers as they try to prevent themselves from getting caught. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season to see what other crazy twists and turns lie ahead.

On tonight’s season premiere, “I’d Rather Be Crafting,” Beth must live with the fallout after her plan to get Rio arrested fails; the women’s crimes finally catch up with them when evidence surfaces that puts them on a collision course with Agent Turner.

See how the cliffhanger resolves tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Supergirl, The Walking Dead, Worst Cooks in America, Crashing, Black Monday, and SMILF.

It’s been a few weeks since the last new episode of NCIS: LA. In “Smokescreen Pt I,” the team was partnered with the FBI to stop what was believed to be a terrorist cell in Los Angeles. And they did indeed stop a van from blowing up near a military ship anchored at the harbor. (It’s been so long, I can’t remember. Might be a decommissioned ship used as a tourist museum of some sort?) Anyway, long story short, there’s still some terrorists out there, and they had a guy in a suicide vest at a movie theater, and it went kaboom with Sam and Callen inside. Fortunately, Sam and Callen are relatively unhurt. Unfortunately, they and all the other people are trapped inside the theater because the bad guys have explosives on all the outer doors. So Kensi and Deeks are outside dealing with the crowd and the few people who were hurt in the first blast, hoping they don’t suddenly get attacked by sniper fire, while Sam and Callen try to attend to the wounded, even though some people died when the bomb went off and some have since died of their injuries sustained in the explosion. It was a tense episode, and I have no doubt the tense excitement will extend into this week’s new episode as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Smokescreen Pt II,” as the team continues to search for a terrorist cell in Los Angeles, Callen and Sam remain trapped in a movie theater after multiple bombs have detonated and every remaining exit is wired with explosives.

See how Sam and Callen make it out of the theater and if they can all stop the terrorists before more lives are lost tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Private Eyes & Worst Cooks in America.

If you were a big fan of the original Charmed like I was, you’re either really excited about or really dreading tonight’s premiere of the “reboot” or whatever they’re calling it. It’s a little confusing because it’s not the same characters, but it is the same premise, yet one trailer does mention one of the characters from the original…so who knows!

Sisters Mel (Melonie Diaz, Laughs Unlimited) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery, Shades of Blue) are dealing with the tragic death of their mother when they suddenly learn they have an older sister named Macy (Madeleine Mantock, Into the Badlands, The Tomorrow People). Then comes an even bigger shock: they find out they’re witches and each suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities. They speak to Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans, Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond, The Man in the High Castle), who explains about their mother and now the three of them being powerful witches and that he’s their “Whitelighter,” or advisor/guide. Together, the three of them must decide to accept their new destiny as the Charmed Ones and their new duty to hunt down the demons that walk among humans – including the one who killed their mother. Charlie Gillespie, Ellen Tamaki, and Ser’Darius Blain also star.

I can’t go into this show prepared to compare it to the original. That version (along with Prue, Piper, Phoebe, & Paige, not to mention Leo, Chris, & Darryl) will always hold a special place in my heart. So I have to watch and think of it as something new or else I know I won’t return for a second ep. What about you? Are you planning to watch?

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after the tragic death of Mel and Maggie’s mother, the sisters are shocked to discover they have an older sister; the three sisters begin to exhibit strange new abilities.

Find out what abilities the sisters have tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Halloween Wars, NCIS: LA, & Haunted Gingerbread Showdown.
