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.

The last episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was epic – not only was it another fun Halloween episode that included the precinct facing off with one another trying to win the annual Halloween Heist, which brought back Fake Charles, Terry lifting a hugely heavy server, and everyone trying to outdo the others…but Jake actually proposed to Amy! At first she thought it was a play to win the heist, but when she realized he was serious, she said yes! It was SO cute! Like I said… Epic!

On tonight’s episode, “Bad Beat,” to track down the infamous arms dealer Dan “Daniel” Valdano (guest star David Figlioli, Murder in the First), Jake and Terry go undercover at an illegal gambling club, but when Holt gets involved to coach the two in the art of poker, his addiction resurfaces. Meanwhile, Boyle buys a food truck that was formerly used in a brutal string of murders without telling his investor (Amy), and Hitchcock and Scully challenge Rosa to a “Butt-lympics.”

See Amy’s reaction to the murder truck and find out who wins the “Butt-lympics” tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, The Little Couple, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Tonight, the fourth season of The Flash begins on The CW. As the third season came to a close, Team Flash had its final showdown with speedster Savitar, who turned out to be a future version of Barry. In the process, H.R. sacrificed himself to save Iris, Caitlin learned there’s a cure for her condition, Cisco modified Savitar’s stolen Speed Cannon so that it would release Jay Garrick from prison, and Gypsy returned from across the multiverse to save Cisco. During the final altercation, Barry couldn’t bring himself to kill Savitar, but Iris was more than willing to do the deed, shooting him dead. Afterwards, Central City was being rocked by earthquakes. The Speed Force was unstable and the prison needed a replacement, so Barry volunteered to go, since all of this mess was due to his selfish acts. Meanwhile, Caitlin refused to take the cure, as she wanted to figure out who she really was.

Who will step up to protect Central City in Barry’s absence? How and when will Barry return from the Speed Force, and how will his time there have affected him? With Caitlin refusing to take the cure, is there a danger of her becoming evil again? With H.R. dead, will we see another version of Dr. Wells appear to take his place?

The third season was a bit of a downer, with Barry constantly moping about something or further messing things up due to his selfishness. Also, it was the third year in a row where the big villain was yet another speedster. The producers have promised to address these issues this season, getting this back to a more chill Barry and the lighter, more fun show people loved in the first season. Also, this year the big bad will not be yet another speedster! The Flash still remains my favorite of The CW’s superhero shows, and I’m looking forward to another season.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Flash Reborn,” a powerful armored villain threatens to level Central City if the Flash doesn’t appear, so Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. But the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in.

Find out what’s different about Barry since his return tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.
