Tonight, the third season of TBS’s castaway comedy Wrecked comes to a close with a special one-hour finale. This season the castaways found themselves trapped on the private island belonging to a wealthy hunter named Declan, who forced them to participate in a deadly Hunger Games-like competition. Last week Karen was shot in the stomach with an arrow by Chet, who seemed to have gone wild, calling himself the Chettywompwomp. As Karen recounted her surprising love story to Florence, Danny and Owen went to look for a first aid kit and ended up at Chet’s lair. They were captured and tied up, but Owen challenged Chet to a fight. Meanwhile, Todd, Pack, and Jess were in another part of the island when Jess’s bracelet suddenly stopped working. This meant that she could now safely walk through the shock pylons without being killed. As she passed through the barrier headed to disable the generator, the hunters observed this on their monitor and started to panic.

Will Owen and Danny survive their fight with Chet and get back to Karen in time with the first aid kit? Can Jess disable the generator in time, and will she ever get her memory back about her relationship with Todd? Can the group stop the hunters and escape from the island? This has been another fun season, and I look forward to seeing how it comes to a close. This show always does a great job of wrapping up each season’s storyline while also leaving things open for a future season.

On the first half of tonight’s finale, “Mrs. Stanwick,” the survivors attempt to turn the tables on the rich and lure them into a trap. Then, in “The Island Family,” barricaded in the mansion and surrounded by the rich, the survivors mount one last attempt to escape Declan’s island.

Find out how the season ends tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording FBI, This Is Us, New Amsterdam, The Gifted, Flipping Out, Mayans M.C., and The Purge.

My pick tonight is one of the new shows I’m most looking forward to this season, for multiple reasons: FBI on CBS. First, it’s a procedural(ish?) drama on CBS, and you guys know how much I love me some procedurals on CBS. Second, it stars Missy Peregrym (from two of my all-time favorite shows, Rookie Blue & Reaper), Jeremy Sisto (who I love and think is adorable), and Sela Ward (who I’ve loved since Sisters, Once and Again, & CSI: NY). And third, it comes from Dick Wolf, who is the creative force behind all the Law & Order shows, etc. With all that combined, how could I go wrong?!

Missy P stars as Maggie Bell, an FBI Special Agent in the New York office. Her partner is Special Agent Omar Adom “OA” Zidan, a West Point graduate who spent two years undercover for the DEA before being recruited by the FBI. Sela Ward plays Special Agent in Charge Dana Mosier, and the rest of the team includes Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine (Sisto), and Kristen Chazel, a brilliant analyst recruited straight out of college.

I’ve seen the pilot and really enjoyed it. Missy P definitely didn’t let me down in her first major role since Rookie Blue. I enjoyed the case as well as the chemistry between all the players, so I’m definitely looking forward to more!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after a bomb explosion devastates a residential apartment building, Special Agents Maggie Bell and Omar Adom “OA” Zidan of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigate a possible war between rival gangs – that is, until their prime suspects are discovered brutally murdered.

Find out who planted the bomb tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Chopped, Lethal Weapon (Maybe? I quit watching last season, but with the new partner, I may tune back in at first to give it another chance…), Carter, NCIS: New Orleans, Sweet Home Sextuplets, & Mr Inbetween.

Tonight, New Girl returns to FOX to kick off its final season. I was surprised when the series was picked up for this final season, because I thought the sixth season did a nice job of providing a season finale that worked well as a series finale. As the sixth season came to a close, we finally learned that Schmidt’s real name is Winston. Also, Schmidt and Cece discovered that they were going to have a baby. Nick found a publisher for his book, “The Pepperwood Chronicles.” And after a few more near-misses, Jess and Nick finally proclaimed their love for one another, kissing in the elevator of their apartment building.

The new season picks up about three years later, on the day of Schmidt and Cece’s daughter’s third birthday. Jess and Nick have been away on a European book tour and haven’t seen their friends for the past six months. Meanwhile, Aly is seven months pregnant with her and Winston’s first child. I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – it was great to get to spend more time with these characters and get a glimpse into their future. The show feels the same in many ways but also gets a bit of a reboot with the time jump (and with a coupe of the characters’ appearances). I look forward to seeing how the show comes to an end, what lies ahead for these characters, and what characters from the past will pop in for a final guest appearance.

On tonight’s episode, “About Three Years Later,” Jess and Nick return from a European book tour; Schmidt and Cece celebrate their daughter’s birthday with a party, where Jess runs into her ex; Winston and Aly try to pick a pregnancy photo.

Catch up with this group of friends tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, For the People, Rise, LA to Vegas, The Flash, Black Lightning, Legion, and The Last O.G..

Thank goodness the Gabriel Hicks story line on NCIS is over. The best part of the episode had to be the creepy killer (Paul Triff) who used to live in McGee’s apartment. He was back last week, after we learned that he’d been Hicks’s cellmate. He agreed to tell them anything Hicks had told him, but only if he got to spend some time in the apartment. So McGee sent his family away, brought in a cage for Triff to stay in, and cleared the apartment of anything that pointed to McGee having a family. Triff was kind of hysterical, and in the end, he saved McGee’s life when Hicks showed up and tried to shoot him. We nearly saw the end of Fornell when Hicks kidnapped him, but Fornell got himself free in the trunk, crawled up through back seat, and started strangling him from behind until he crashed the car. They fought and Hicks nearly got the best of him, but Gibbs was there and used Fornell’s Taser and zapped him, saving the day. Of course!

On tonight’s episode, “Handle with Care,” Gibbs and the team work to clear the name of retired Marine Sergeant John Ross (Drew Carey, who in real life served in the Marine Reserves for six years) when cyanide is found in one of the hundreds of care packages he sends to active-duty Marines.

See how they clear Ross’s name tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World continues to be a fun, entertaining series. Two weeks ago, Kevin finally found the first righteous soul. However, while this was going on, Yvette had made herself visible to Tyler, and the two shared a romantic evening of dinner and dancing. Ever since, Tyler had been desperately trying to reconnect with her. Last week, fate led Kevin to help a lonely single guy get back into dating. However, he had chosen Kristin as his first date, and he wanted Kevin to join him on a double-date. So Kevin brought his sister Amy along, and things got a bit awkward. In the process, Kevin and Kristin realized they still had feelings for one another. Later, Kristin saw how well Kevin interacted with her students when she stepped out of the classroom for a few minutes, and so she submitted his name for the substitute teacher job at her school. Meanwhile, Reese, inspired by Kevin, befriended the odd new girl at school but regretted her decision after the girl became a bit too clingy. And Amy finally asked Nate out on a date.

While Kevin’s progress toward finding the righteous souls has been a bit slow this season (only 1 in 10 episodes!), the series has still done a great job of both evolving the main characters while also giving Kevin interesting souls of the week to help. It seems like everyone’s lives are moving in the right direction… Amy is finally going on a date with Nate, Kevin has a job (which also gets him closer to Kristin), and Kevin’s good activities are also wearing off on Reese. When will Kevin find his next righteous soul, and what other people in need will he help along the way? I look forward to finding out!

On tonight’s episode, “Solo,” as the newest substitute teacher at La Salle High School, Kevin tries to help an introverted student named Adam become more self-assured and popular. However, to do so, he must first pull off the second greatest freshman prank in the school’s history. Meanwhile, Yvette contemplates life after the mission, and Amy and Nate struggle to plan the perfect first date.

See how Kevin does as a substitute teacher tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, This Is Us, LA to Vegas, and The Mick.
