Last week’s NCIS dealt with a congresswoman who was receiving threats, including a dead rat left in her car with a note saying she was next. The woman didn’t seem to take them seriously at all, until her assistant was killed. She annoyed me the entire episode. I guess you have to admire her “can do” attitude, but it was “must get elected, no matter the consequences, and that irritated me. I did call who the killer was. Shame on the assistant’s girlfriend! And I was kind of shocked to see Vance and the congresswoman flirting and agreeing to go out on a date. (Again, she annoyed me there. She was way too…take-charge, too…I dunno…something, for me. LOL)

I love holiday episodes on my procedurals, and I have loved all the episodes of NCIS where we see a young Ducky. So combine those two things, and I know I’m going to love tonight’s episode! Plus, Fornell is back, and he’s a riot, especially his interactions with Gibbs.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tie That Binds,” after the NCIS team tracks evidence from the murder of a Navy captain to Ducky’s deceased mother, Ducky looks back and questions a pivotal life choice he made 37 years ago. Also, the team exchanges holiday gifts, and Gibbs spends Christmas dinner with Fornell. Adam Campbell returns as Young Ducky, and Juliette Angelo returns as Emily Fornell.

Find out what choice Ducky questions tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

brooklyn99126smallAhh, how I love Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The show never fails to make me laugh. Like last week, when Jake mentioned a famous author who had a stalker, and Terry freaked out because the guy was his hero. Jake decided to get the case transferred to them so Terry could meet him. In the end, Terry was disappointed because what he thought the author had autographed to him when he was a kid really had been written by the man’s (now ex-) assistant, who turned out to be the author’s stalker. Terry was hysterical the whole show, from freaking out about meeting him to ripping the three-inch book in half in anger after finding out about the signature. Jake was just as funny. I loved his stories about pantsing his heroes (five of the NY Knicks?! LOL)…and then pantsing Terry at the end!

Of course, then there was the just as funny side story of Captain Holt and Kevin arguing about a math problem and seeking Amy’s opinion. She was so eager to help, but she clearly didn’t see it coming that she would side with Kevin over her beloved Captain Holt! Her conversation with Rosa about them being her dads was hysterical, and so was Rosa’s telling Captain Holt that he needed to “get some.” Oh my word. I cracked up, especially with Captain Holt’s reaction and then coming in later on and being happier because he did, indeed, “get some.” LMAO

On tonight’s episode, “The Overmining,” Captain “CJ” (guest star Ken Marino) is having major problems with a big case, and Jake and Holt find the motivation to help him out. Inside the precinct, war ensues when Terry enforces a green initiative and tells Gina to get rid of her precious space heater, while Rosa and Boyle take a break from the night shift to visit a foot massage parlor.

See if Jake and Captain Holt can help “CJ” and why tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef, Aftermath, Chicago Fire, & NCIS: NOLA.

ncisnola1025smallLast week was a defining episode for Sebastian on NCIS: New Orleans. While his mom was in town, he was kidnapped by a small group of people who wanted his knowledge of virtual reality games (specifically ones where you break out of prisons and locked rooms, etc.) to help break a bad guy out of prison. Sebastian kind of rocked it… He reached out secretly via tablet to Pride when the bad guy left him alone in a room in the prison so Sebastian could start the process to break out the prisoner. After the bad guys nearly got away, Sebastian actually helped take them down after the left the prison. He felt so confident that he asked out the waitress he’d been sort of flirting with for a while.

I didn’t like that Percy wasn’t there last week, especially because Lasalle didn’t know why she wasn’t there. Stupid writers… Giving us shippers some hope and then yanking it away! LMAO Tonight looks like it should be a good episode…an emotional one. I can’t wait!

On tonight’s episode, “Course Correction,” NCIS and FBI investigate a private plane crash in the bayou that killed three sailors. Also, Sonja and Lasalle interview candidates for the team’s open agent position.

See if they can figure out what caused the plane crash tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, No Tomorrow, Aftermath, Chicago Fire, & Chopped.

freshofftheboat113smallOne show I always look forward to on Tuesdays is ABC’s fun family comedy Fresh Off the Boat. Last week was the annual Halloween episode, and Louis was determined to revitalize Halloween in his neighborhood by repairing its reputation as a dead street and turn it into a prime destination for trick-or-treaters. While Louis dressed up as Mr. T, there was no convincing Jessica to wear the bow-hawk Louis got her to be his Mrs. T – she was too busy trying to protect her flip property from a group of teenage holiday pranksters. Meanwhile, Eddie and his friends plotted their candy and costume strategy. One of the guys wanted the gang to dress as members of the Traveling Wilburys, but Eddie nixed that plan and went as Humpty Hump. The rest of the family also dressed up – Emery and Evan as Hannibal Lector and a silent lamb, and Grandma Huang in a full Garfield costume.

This show is always so much fun with its witty writing, great 90s pop-culture references, and good old family fun. No matter what craziness happens throughout the episode, the Huang family always seems to come together in the end for some heartfelt moment. I always find myself laughing out loud during this show, and I can’t wait to see what the Huangs are up to next! A couple weeks ago, ABC announced that it had picked up Fresh Off the Boat for a full 22-episode season, so we’ve got plenty more fun Huang family adventures to come!

On tonight’s episode, “Good Morning Orlando,” Louis appears on a local morning show to promote Cattleman’s Ranch. In other events, Eddie and his pals try to sort out who their girlfriends are during a group date at the skating rink.

See how Louis’s appearance on TV goes tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, The Muppets, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris, The Flash, and iZombie.

freshofftheboatsmallTonight is the first season finale of the hilarious ABC comedy Fresh Off the Boat. Last week, Louis and Jessica reluctantly “volunteered” at the kids’ schools. When Eddie heard that his father had played professional basketball back in Taiwan, he was excited to have him coaching his team. However, he was disappointed that his father was concentrating on basic drills instead of teaching them to fly through the air Crouching Tiger-style. Meanwhile, Jessica was also disappointing Emery and Evan through her volunteer role of producing the school play. She threw out the school’s fun, lively play in exchange for her own darker, more serious, “Acting: A Cautionary Tale (Mr Gumdrop Goes To Lazywood)” — she wanted to teach the children that acting was not a worthwhile profession.

This show is always so much fun and the highlight of my Tuesday-night TV viewing! Constance Wu is a riot and deserves an Emmy for her performance as Jessica! I hope tonight is not the last we see of this series, because I really want to see more of the Huang family’s misadventures in the ’90s!

On tonight’s episode, “So Chineez,” Jessica fears that the family has lost its Chinese identity, so she strives for them to reconnect with their culture. To that end, she insists that Louis decline an invitation to join the country club and makes Eddie do a report on China for his World Day project.

Check out the funny tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Forever, Undateable, One Big Happy, Weird Loners, The Flash, iZombie, Younger, Your Family or Mine, and Finding Carter.
