I’ve been enjoying the return of Will & Grace. It’s getting better every episode. Last week, Grace went to the doctor and was put under anesthesia when they found a spot in her breast and needed to do a biopsy. They called her emergency contact…and because Karen doesn’t do her job, Grace’s emergency contact was still Leo, her ex-husband, not Will. So she was shocked when he turned up to take her home. That brought out a lot of old feelings, including resentment and blame about who was responsible for the destruction of their marriage. After Grace talked to Will, she and Leo had another talk (including a kiss!), and they left things on a better note.

Meanwhile, Jack was waiting to see if he’d gotten a commercial (he didn’t…) and took a temp job as a pianist for a boys’ & girls’ club. He was…well, Jack. But Karen showed up and ended up helping out a young girl who had no women in her life and she needed a woman’s advice because she’d…well, become a “woman,” to put it blandly. Karen was shockingly sweet about it while still being Karen. I loved it.

On tonight’s episode, “Grandpa Jack,” Jack is stunned to learn that his estranged son, Elliot (guest star Michael Angarano) has a son of his own, Skip (guest star Jet Jurgensmeyer). Moreover, Skip needs the kind of help only Will and Jack can provide. Grace and Karen behave badly with the hot new guy at work. Jane Lynch and Andrew Rannells also guest star.

Meet Jack’s grandson tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Great News, Beat Bobby Flay, & Chicago Fire.

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.

Last week’s The Big Bang Theory was really great. Sheldon was stressing big-time as he tried to plan the perfect wedding, starting with the wedding date. He couldn’t settle on one because everything he tried turned out to be the birth or death date of a famous scientist, a “con” of some sort, or something similar. It was so bad that he was working it out through his subconscious while he slept, becoming completely unlike himself – laid-back, unopinionated, etc. And when he showed up at home looking like something wet the cat dragged in after pulling it through the mud, he just looked pitiful. In the end, he agreed gratefully to let Amy take control – again unlike him but showing his growth through the series. The other story line was Bernie’s new coworker, who both Raj and Stuart wanted to pair up with. Raj’s thought that he should get her because they were both Indian was hysterical, but poor Stuart is just…well, pitiful. In the end, they both acted like asses and neither got the girl. Surprise, surprise. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “The Explosion Implosion,” Wolowitz and Sheldon bond when they drive to the desert to shoot off a model rocket. Also, when Leonard’s mom, Beverly (Christine Baranski), finds a new best friend in Penny, it rubs Leonard the wrong way.

Find out why Leonard gets upset tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Brave.

Tonight The CW sees the return of musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. As the second season came to a close, Rebecca and Josh were preparing for their wedding, though it was Rebecca who was doing most of the planning. Rebecca’s father returned, but instead of giving her the nod of approval she always yearned for, he was just there to ask for money. Meanwhile, Josh started to have doubts and ultimately decided to call off the wedding. He then made the extreme choice to become a priest. Rebecca, distraught from this news, was about to jump off a cliff when Paula talked her down. Now the only thing on Rebecca’s mind is getting revenge on Josh Chan.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can be soapy, campy, and over-the-top, but that’s what makes it so much fun – along with the hilarious musical numbers in each episode. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s premiere to see what Rebecca has in store for her revenge plan. Will Josh really become a priest? Will Rebecca finally move on and find someone else to obsess about? What other crazy situations will these people get up to? And what kind of extremely inappropriate song topics/lyrics can we look forward to this season?

On tonight’s premiere, “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend Wants Revenge,” Rebecca plots revenge against Josh after he abandoned her at the altar. Meanwhile, White Josh and Darryl work on some problems; and Paula and Scott confront some unusual issues in their marriage.

Catch up with Rebecca and her friends tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Inhumans, Jane the Virgin, Room 104, and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.

Tonight, the fourth season of The Flash begins on The CW. As the third season came to a close, Team Flash had its final showdown with speedster Savitar, who turned out to be a future version of Barry. In the process, H.R. sacrificed himself to save Iris, Caitlin learned there’s a cure for her condition, Cisco modified Savitar’s stolen Speed Cannon so that it would release Jay Garrick from prison, and Gypsy returned from across the multiverse to save Cisco. During the final altercation, Barry couldn’t bring himself to kill Savitar, but Iris was more than willing to do the deed, shooting him dead. Afterwards, Central City was being rocked by earthquakes. The Speed Force was unstable and the prison needed a replacement, so Barry volunteered to go, since all of this mess was due to his selfish acts. Meanwhile, Caitlin refused to take the cure, as she wanted to figure out who she really was.

Who will step up to protect Central City in Barry’s absence? How and when will Barry return from the Speed Force, and how will his time there have affected him? With Caitlin refusing to take the cure, is there a danger of her becoming evil again? With H.R. dead, will we see another version of Dr. Wells appear to take his place?

The third season was a bit of a downer, with Barry constantly moping about something or further messing things up due to his selfishness. Also, it was the third year in a row where the big villain was yet another speedster. The producers have promised to address these issues this season, getting this back to a more chill Barry and the lighter, more fun show people loved in the first season. Also, this year the big bad will not be yet another speedster! The Flash still remains my favorite of The CW’s superhero shows, and I’m looking forward to another season.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Flash Reborn,” a powerful armored villain threatens to level Central City if the Flash doesn’t appear, so Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. But the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in.

Find out what’s different about Barry since his return tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

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