Tonight, FOX kicks off the new comedy LA to Vegas, which follows the exploits of the passengers and crew aboard the Jackpot Airlines weekend flights between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Piloting the plane is Captain Dave (Dylan McDermott, American Horror Story, The Practice) – a thrice-divorced guy who’s more in love with himself than anyone else and who puts having fun above everything else. He’ll hit on passengers and joke about getting high in the cockpit. Flight attendants Ronnie (Kim Matula, The Bold and the Beautiful, UnReal) and Bernard (Nathan Lee Graham, Zoolander) aren’t that much better and don’t put a whole lot of effort into doing their jobs properly either. Some of the flight’s regular passengers include Economics professor Colin (Ed Weeks, The Mindy Project), stripper Nichole (Olivia Macklin, The Young Pope, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll), and gambler/con man Artem (Peter Stormare, American Gods, Prison Break).

I thoroughly enjoyed the few episodes I’ve seen of this series – it had me laughing out loud quite a few times. The cast is hilarious and really play really well off one another. The writers have done a great job of coming up with witty dialogue and fun situations and characters. The show’s setting allows for both ongoing developments with the recurring characters, as well as crazy new stories each week with new passengers or temporary crew members who pop in as guest stars. This is one of my favorites of the new midseason shows, and I am really looking forward to seeing more episodes!

Tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” introduces the shoestring budget airline crew and its eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind: to come back a winner. It won’t be easy, but this unlikely group of miscreants and dreamers will eventually go from being strangers on a plane to a supportive, if unconventional, family – well, at least from Friday to Sunday.

Check out the new show tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and The Mick.

I really enjoyed the last episode of NCIS: New Orleans. A group of street kids were pulling cons and stealing from tourists. But they stole a bag from petty officer who then followed them, only to be stopped by the “leader” of the street kids, the oldest of the bunch, who had a gun. Fortunately the kids didn’t kill him, but the bad guys (who were after diamonds they’d hidden in the petty officer’s camera) who did also killed a couple of the street kids, which was really sad. Percy & Gregorio got close to two of the kids, taking them home with them for the night so they didn’t have to send them into the system. And poor Pride is trying so hard to play by the rules, but then something crops up (like trying to help the kids), where he feels it best to go off-book, and it gets him into trouble, even though things work out for the best. He just can’t seem to win!

On tonight’s episode, “Mirror Mirror,” after Rita Deveraux tells Pride that Hamilton is about to make a deal to get out of prison, Pride and the team rehash the Clearwater case in hopes of locating his mystery partner and spoiling his bargaining chip. Chelsea Field, Steven Weber, & Stacy Keach guest star.

See if Pride can once again take down Hamilton tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Major Crimes, Chicago Med, & Chopped.

Poor Dr. Rhodes on Chicago Med. He’s so stressed because of the stuff with Robin at home that things at work are going a bit crazy. Last week, it seemed like he’d made a mistake on a valve transplant, but in the end, it turned out the valve was faulty. It did lead to a great conversation with Dr. Latham, so that was awesome. Meanwhile, Drs. Charles and Reese are still at odds, disagreeing over the way he handled his shooter and the aftermath. It makes things very tense between them constantly.

But the big story lines last week were between April and Dr. Choi as well as Drs. Manning & Halstead. Ethan put April on the spot regarding a test for a long-time patient of hers, which at first looked like it might have done more harm than good. In the end, though, it showed that he had cancer, and it was heartbreaking watching April have to break that news to the man. As for Natalie and Will, their pregnant patient was so fanatical about eating “clean” that she was basically starving her unborn baby. She was 8 months pregnant, but the baby was only measuring 5 months. In the end, to save the mother and baby, they had to deliver the baby, who was small, but they were giving it nutrition to help it grow. It was a touching moment later when Will took Natalie to ride the Ferris wheel after she’d told the pregnant woman that her biggest fear after having her son was heights.

I’m really enjoying this season so far, although I’m already over the fighting between Sarah and Dr. Charles as well as Robin’s health issues.

On tonight’s episode, “Trust Your Gut,” when Goodwin receives financial complaints from the hospital board, she is forced to implement new guidelines that cause headaches for the doctors. Dr. Rhodes and Ava continue to compete in the operating room, while Dr. Charles and Dr. Reese are surprised when they treat a man who has a peculiar theory about his sickness. Dr. Manning and Dr. Choi can’t figure out what is wrong with a young girl, leading them to look to a questionable source for answers.

See what new guidelines Ms. Goodwin is forced to put into play tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, Will & Grace, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chopped.

Tonight is the conclusion of the 5-episode “Sanctuary City” arc on Major Crimes. It’s been an eventful arc so far with surprises happening every episode. Last week, we not only found out Sharon had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy (and I loved how she turned Rusty’s question about what he can do to help into him agreeing to a protection detail! LOL), but Lucas’s drug-addicted father was found dead in his office. Everyone believes it was an overdose. Was it self-inflicted – and if so, then on purpose or accident? Was it murder? I think the other two doctors or whoever they are in his practice have been hiding something, so…maybe it was them? And we learned from the remaining two boys that Lucas had taken them to a limo and then they’d been sprayed with something that knocked them out and made their throats hurt, and then they woke in Mexico. Chloroform was found on their clothes, so maybe? But they were also found with opioids in their bags in Mexico, so…I’m still as confused as ever.

Tonight wraps up this arc, thank goodness. It’s been a fun and interesting case, but I honestly have no idea what the truth is, and I’m ready to move on!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 5,” as the case of the St. Joseph’s Three leads to its unexpected conclusion, Commander Sharon Raydor attempts to balance the case, her family arriving, and her fast approaching wedding to Lt. Andy Flynn.

Find out the truth to all the unanswered questions tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Chopped, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chicago Med.

I’m so glad that Chicago Med is back tonight. I hate that we had to wait until late November to get it, especially after the way last season ended! Dr. Charles was preoccupied with his daughter Robin’s health, both mental and physical, after she had what they thought was a psychotic break but really turned out to be a brain tumor. So that was good, at least, since it meant she would be cured after surgery. But because he was preoccupied, he didn’t go down and check on the former patient who ranted and raved in the ER waiting room all day, and when Dr. Charles left the hospital late that night, the man confronted him…and shot him! Eek!

Of course, that wasn’t the only story line shocker of the finale. The gang was together celebrating the fact that Noah got placed there at Chicago Med, and during the party, Ethan (Dr. Choi) & April finally kissed after they’d been dancing around one another for weeks. Not only that, but Will & Natalie (Drs. Halstead & Manning) danced and looked like they were getting closer – thank goodness, because Will FINALLY broke up with Nina, which meant both of them were single. Now, how the show will handle both potential couples, we’ll have to see!

Did the gunshot kill Dr. Charles? How is Robin doing after her diagnosis, and how did it affect her relationship with Connor (Dr. Rhodes)? Will either of the pairings from the finale be together now? How much time has passed since that night? I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and it answers (or at least starts to answer) some of those questions. It’s an exciting episode, so buckle up, because I have a feeling it’s going to be a great season!

On tonight’s episode, “Speak Your Truth,” the doctors of Chicago Med take their opinions to the extreme as they try to bring justice to the perpetrator in the shooting of Dr. Charles. Dr. Halstead and Dr. Manning work on a heart-wrenching case that forces them to examine their own matters of the heart. Though Robin’s brain tumor was removed and she is discharged from the rehabilitation center, Dr. Rhodes remains on edge that her problems are not quite resolved. Meanwhile, Rhodes gets blindsided by his colleague Dr. Bekker, Maggie sticks up for a patient, and Dr. Choi and April try to navigate their new working relationship.

Catch up with the hospital gang in Chicago tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Dancing with the Stars, The Little Couple, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
