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, NBC launches Powerless, the first sitcom to be set in the DC Comics universe. Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens, High School Musical) is a bright-eyed young woman who is sick of her boring job in the suburbs and decides to move to Charm City to work for Wayne Security as the new Director of Research and Development. Her new boss is Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk, Firefly), the black sheep of his family, who just wants to be noticed by his famous cousin Bruce and to run the family business in Gotham City. Wayne Security creates products to help regular human beings protect themselves from all the crossfire damage caused by battles between super heroes and supervillains. The business has been failing due to a lack of innovation, so Emily was brought in to hopefully inspire and motivate the staff — Chief Design Officer Teddy (Danny Pudi, Community), Lead Software Engineer Wendy (Jennie Pierson, Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23), Head of Engineering/Chief of Childlike Wonder Ron (Ron Funches, Undateable), and Van’s disillusioned assistant Jackie (Christina Kirk, A to Z).

I had been really excited for this series ever since it was first announced last summer. At the time, the series was to be an office comedy about an insurance company that dealt with the damage left behind by superheroes. Shortly after San Diego Comic-Con, the series got a new showrunner and the premise was changed somewhat. I was a little concerned at first, but I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. The series reminds me a lot of Better Off Ted with the office politics and crazy lab workers. It’s got some great office humor but also has a lot of fun with the tropes you see in superhero shows, movies, and comics. There are already so many superhero shows on TV these days, but this is a fun new take on the genre that’s worth checking out!

While the premise of the series has changed slightly since the original pilot, the cast hasn’t, and you can find my fun video interviews with the cast from Comic-Con at NoReruns.net (http://www.noreruns.net/2016/08/18/powerless-press-room-san-diego-comic-con-2016/).

On tonight’s premiere, “Wayne or Lose,” a woman begins her new job with a company specializing in products that make everyday citizens feel safer around damage caused by super heroes and villains that live among them.

Check out the different take on the comic-book world tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Superior Donuts, Life in Pieces, Training Day, Superstore, The Blacklist, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

hawaiifiveo422smallThere were two main story lines on last week’s Hawaii Five-0. The main case dealt with a stolen…well, basically Iron Man suit. It was virtually indestructible. After some legwork, the team was able to find a woman who was involved with the heist – the thief was after a gun she had as evidence – and she told them where she was supposed to meet the thief to give him the gun. Of course he showed up in the suit of armor, which meant any bullets they shot, even Kono on the sniper rifle, wouldn’t hurt him. So Steve let him go and then rammed into the SUV he was driving with one of the police SUVs. That did it.

The other story was Jerry and his crazy beautiful sister, who breezed into town, saying she wanted to say hi to her brother. It turned out that she had hooked up with an animal-rescue organization and was there to free a circus elephant. Unfortunately, when she was loading it into the truck they had, a car alarm went off and scared it, and it took off in a rampage. Although it did some damage, no one was killed, and she was able to recapture it and keep it someplace safe. With Jerry’s help, along with Kamekona & Max, they were able to get the animal safely on its way away from Hawaii. Steve knew Jerry was involved and needled him about it, but Jerry didn’t get it trouble because of it.

I love this show. It’s so much fun because of the stories and the characters. And this week is going to involve one of my favorite characters – Adam Noshimuri, Kono’s husband. He’s in prison after killing one of the men who had kidnapped him and might have killed him. He could have gotten away with it, but he’s such a good man that he turned himself in to the police. Kono is worried, though, because she just found out from someone else that the current big-bad, Gabriel Waincroft, visited Adam in prison and offered him a job. Adam said he didn’t take it, but since he didn’t tell Kono about Gabriel himself, she’s worried he isn’t telling her the whole truth. Given the description for tonight’s episode, I’m guessing he wasn’t.

On tonight’s episode, “Ka Pono Ku’oko’a (The Cost of Freedom),” Five-0 goes on a manhunt when a deliberate chemical spill enables six dangerous inmates to escape, including Kono’s husband, Adam. Randy Couture guest stars as serial arsonist Jason Duclair.

Find out why Adam runs tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, Grimm, Hell’s Kitchen, & Motive.

wahlburgers2016smallOne of my favorite family reality shows, Wahlburgers, is back tonight on a 1-hour season premiere. Last season, it was more of the same for this fun family: Mark tortured Paul, Paul created a new burger for some football friends, Mark and Donnie got to spend time together in NYC when their schedules overlapped, and new Wahlburger restaurants opened in Toronto and Coney Island. Not to mention we got lots of Alma and brother Bob. I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for the Walberg family this go round.

On tonight’s episode, “Directing Drama,” when Johnny Drama looks to take his music career to the next level, Mark suggests Drama make a music video that Mark himself will direct. The music video will be Drama’s Wahlburgers Rap Jingle and shot down in New Orleans where Mark is filming his latest movie. Mark enlists music mogul Sean “P Diddy” Combs and movie director Peter Berg to help mentor Drama. But filming hits a rough patch when Drama is not comfortable with the alter ego “Drama Boy” that Mark creates for him.

Check out the crazy fun tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rosewood, Hell’s Kitchen, Property Brothers, & CSI: Cyber.

stitchers62smallI’m not a fan of a lot of shows on ABC Family, but their latest, Stitchers, is definitely on the “must-watch” side. The show follows Kirsten (newcomer Emma Ishta), a young woman recruited into a covert government agency to be “stitched” into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave. Working alongside Kirsten is Cameron (Kyle Harris, Carrie Diaries), a brilliant neuroscientist whose passion for the program is evident in his work. The secret program is headed by Maggie (Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Eureka), a skilled veteran of covert operations, and includes Linus (Ritesh Rajan, upcoming Jungle Book), a socially immature bioelectrical engineer and communications technician. Kirsten’s roommate, Camille (Allison Scagliotti, Warehouse 13), a gifted computer science grad student, is also recruited to use her skills to assist Kirsten in her new role as a “stitcher.”

I’ve seen the first two episodes, and it’s really fantastic. Kirsten reminds me of Brennan on Bones, in that her sense of humor is…well…pretty much nonexistent. That in and of itself is funny. But it also makes the surrounding cast important, and thankfully, that’s not a problem. I adore Cameron (like, huge new TV crush), Linus is extremely funny, Camille is fun and interesting (and I absolutely love Allison Scagliotti), and Salli Richardson-Whitfield is great as Kirsten’s new boss.

On tonight’s episode, “A Stitch in Time,” a young woman with a talent for technology joins a covert agency to solve crimes and mysteries by entering the minds of recently deceased individuals.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on ABC Family at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Chrisley Knows Best, Hell’s Kitchen, Junk Food Flip, The Little Couple, Chopped, Royal Pains, Your Family or Mine, & I Can Do That.
