I’m so excited because tonight is the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance on FOX. And thank goodness, but it seems like it’s back to the “old-school” format, where contestants simply dance with the All-Stars and compete in various styles. No “this vs that” or mentors with their groups, etc. Just back to the format that we all fell in love with. Nigel, Mary, and Vanessa are back as judges, and tWitch joins them on the judging panel in the audition cities. I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and there are some amazing dancers in New York. The episode made me laugh, tear up, and had my jaw dropping. I can’t wait to see it again tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Auditions No. 1,” top dancers from around the country perform in New York; Stephen “tWitch” Boss joins the judges.

Don’t miss it tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Best Baker in America & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

Last week’s NCIS: LA wasn’t one of my favorites, for several reasons. Mainly because it was basically an extension to a previous episode with little bits and pieces of new stuff thrown in. Nicole DeChamps, who recruited Sam into an undercover op dealing with Peruvian counterfeiter Alfonso Marca in the episode that tied into this one, was back. She had left the Secret Service and was now a member of NCIS in the San Diego office. (NCIS: San Diego just doesn’t have the same ring, does it? LOL) Turned out Marca’s sort-of daughter was killed in prison and NCIS was asked to determine whether or not she’d been assassinated or if it was just a regular prison killing.

The most interesting parts of the episode were the non-case stuff. Callen went to talk to Anna (for the first time since she shot Sokolov) when he was called by ATF to give his statement about what he saw or didn’t see at the time. Anna was clearly not happy that Callen hadn’t come to see her before then and told him to tell the truth, that Sokolov was already dead when he got there and he hadn’t seen anything. Things are not all right in the Anna/Callen relationship.

Tonight’s double-episode season finale should be interesting…mainly for Kensi & Deeks (given the preview, so I won’t spoil) and for Mosley, who gets the chance to rescue her son. I’m excited for that part!

On tonight’s episodes, “A Line in the Sand/Ninguna Salida,” Sam is shot during a firefight with a cartel, and a suspect reveals new information on the whereabouts of Spencer Williams, the man who kidnapped Mosley’s son five years ago. Despite several team members having grave reservations, NCIS travels to Mexico for a daring mission to locate and rescue Mosley’s son.

To see if the rescue mission is successful and where the team is left at the end of the season, tune in to CBS starting at 8/7c.

Tonight, after 7 seasons, the FOX comedy New Girl finally comes to an end. Last week, Winston was anxious about becoming a father, so Jess tracked down his long-lost dad. However, after Winston bonded with this stranger, it turned out that Jess had found the wrong person. Meanwhile, Schmidt tried to go back to work, but being away from Ruth was not easy, and Cece realized just how much of a help Schmidt was at home. And Nick had his proposal all set, but his plans got messed up when he and Jess got a new dog. However, in the end, Nick realized that the situation was never going to be perfect and just went for it, proposing to Jess during an outdoor showing of an 80s rom-com in the park.

The series comes to a close with a really satisfying 1-hour finale. The first half of the finale gives us the wedding that’s been seven seasons in the making, but of course, things don’t quite go as planned, and madness and hilarity ensues. And in the final episode, the series takes a fun trip down memory lane, making lots of callbacks that longtime viewers will really appreciate. Many familiar faces also pop up for cameos during tonight’s two episodes. While I initially thought last year’s season finale did a decent job of wrapping up the show, I’m really happy that we got these extra eight episodes to give the series a proper ending. Tonight’s finale is a gift to the longtime fans, giving a fun and satisfying conclusion to the series as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead for Jess and her former loft-mates.

On tonight’s episode, “The Curse of the Pirate Bride; Engram Pattersky,” Jess and Nick make life-changing decisions; Winston and Aly’s big day arrives; the gang takes a trip down memory lane.

Find out how the series ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, Rise, MasterChef: Junior, The Flash, The 100, Legion, and Chrisley Knows Best.

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.

Tonight, The Simpsons hits yet another milestone in its 29th season – with tonight’s 636th episode, the series becomes the new longest-running primetime scripted program in TV history, beating the record previously held by Gunsmoke, which ran for 635 episodes over its 20-year run! And in the cold open for tonight’s episode, the writers have a bit of fun with this fact.

I’m always amazed at how long this show has been on the air and that I’m still enjoying it decades after I first saw this crazy cartoon family as just rough animation during the sketch breaks of The Tracey Ullman Show! This series has a wide range of tones, from wacky comedy, to parody, and even heartfelt stories. Tonight’s 636th episode falls into this latter category, exploring the strained relationship between Homer and his father and taking a glimpse into their past to see what has caused a rift between them in the present. It also features Glenn Close playing the voice of Homer’s mother. The Simpsons has lasted so long because in addition to making the audience laugh, it also gives viewers characters and relationships that they care about.

I will continue to watch this show as long as it stays on the air. I would be shocked if another series manages to take this record away from The Simpsons. The TV landscape has changed a lot over the past few decades. TV seasons have gotten shorter, and shows don’t last for 30 seasons (except maybe NCIS – it seems like that show will go on forever).

On tonight’s episode, “Forgive and Regret,” Grampa makes a confession to Homer while on his deathbed, but when he makes a recovery, he comes to realize that the issue will not be easy to reconcile.

Find out what Grampa confesses tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Deception, Timeless, Bob’s Burgers, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Fear the Walking Dead, Killing Eve, Worst Cooks in America, Trust, Westworld, and Silicon Valley.
