Tonight, the fourth season of ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat comes to a close. In last week’s episode, Louis was initially thrilled to buy back Kenny Rogers’ stake in Cattleman’s Ranch. However, he soon started to doubt his decision and stressed over the fact that he was now solely responsible for the success or failure of the business. Jessica flew in her psychic from D.C., Madam Xing, to try to help Louis overcome his anxiety. But this just made him even more stressed, causing him to break a tooth. So Louis went to see Marvin, and the laughing gas in the dentist chair finally calmed him nerves but also caused him to have some strange delusions. Meanwhile, Evan announced that he was giving up Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for Lent, recording the episodes on VHS to watch after Lent was over. This annoyed Eddie and Emery, who weren’t giving up anything. So the brothers decided to try to trick Evan into breaking his Lenten sacrifice by tempting him with made-up stories of all the crazy things that happened on the talk show that week.

Even in its fourth season, this series continues to feel…well, fresh and continues to make me laugh each week. The series has done an excellent job of not only maintaining the fun character quirks, traits, and relationships but also allowing these characters to develop and grow over time. Jessica, who will always remain my favorite, has definitely learned to let her hair down and just roll with punches every once in a while, even if things aren’t necessarily happening the way she would like them to. Eddie seems to have changed the most this season, becoming much more responsible and mature. I don’t know if the series will be back for another season, but I really hope so, and I am really looking forward to tonight’s season finale.

On tonight’s season finale, “King in the North,” Honey plans a relaxing vacation before the baby arrives, but Jessica turns the trip into a quest to get Stephen King to endorse her novel; Louis scrambles to make Grandma Huang feel welcome; Eddie and Nicole rebel against the school’s dress code.

See how Eddie and Nicole rebel tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, For the People, LA to Vegas, The Mick, Black Lightning, and The Detour.

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.
