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.

Tonight, The Mick returns to FOX to kick off its second season. In the first season, reckless black sheep Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) was forced to care for her niece and two nephews when her wealthy sister went on the lam. What resulted was a hilariously inappropriate Uncle Buck-style comedy that quickly became one of my favorite new comedies of last season. The first season of the series ended with a bang, literally. The Pembertons returned, only to get caught by the police, and in a huge cliffhanger, the mansion went up in flames.

I can’t wait to see where the show goes from here. Without the huge mansion, where are Mickey and the kids going to stay? Do they have any money stashed away, and if not, who is going to take it harder — Mickey or the kids?!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Hotel,” Mickey and the kids are forced to downgrade after their financial advisor cuts them off due to excessive spending; Chip learns tricks from Jimmy on how to live in a luxurious hotel.

Catch tonight’s episode on FOX at 9/8c.

Tonight, after seven crazy seasons, the Comedy Central series Workaholics comes to an end. Over the years, co-workers/roommates Blake, Adam, and Anders have found just about every excuse to avoid actually doing their telemarketing jobs and just spend their time partying or getting up to wacky schemes. They often show up to work drunk or high or engage in totally inappropriate workplace behavior. It’s a wonder how they haven’t been fired. But as much as they claim to hate their jobs, their coworkers – including always-angry boss Alice – have become a dysfunctional family. Last week, motivational speaker Bianca threatened to disrupt the annual workplace Darwin Awards ceremony, and the guys made it their mission to get rid of her. As she was leaving, Bianca offered Alice a job at her company. Even though the job was probably a lot better, Alice ultimately couldn’t bring herself to abandon her work family. It’s like they’re all trapped there for life.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this series comes to an end. The creators have known about this end date for a long time, so I really hope there is some kind of definitive end to the show. Will the guys finally get a little maturity and act like adults? Will the guys go out in a blaze of glory, Thelma & Louise style? Or will it just be not-no-much-business as usual, with the guys up to yet another off-the-wall scheme? Pretty much anything could happen!

On tonight’s series finale, “Party Gawds,” the guys become party gods after an energy drink company starts paying them to throw ragers.

To see how the series ends, tune in to Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Jeff & Some Aliens, Legion, The Magicians, The Expanse, and Major Crimes.

I’m so excited because Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders is back earlier than expected (after Doubt was quickly canceled). This spinoff had a short 13-episode first season, but it was a good one regardless of length. In case you’ve forgotten, this branch of the BAU is the IRT – International Response Team. They travel to foreign countries when American citizens run into trouble abroad. Jack Garrett, played by the incomparable Gary Sinese, is the unit chief. Members of his team include Clara Seger (Alana De La Garza), Matt Simmons (Daniel Henney), Mae Jarvis (Annie Funke), and Russ “Monty” Montgomery (Tyler James Williams). We know that Jack is married with older children. Matt is also married with young children (a whole bunch of them, if I remember right. Like…5?). Clara was married but her husband died a few years ago. Mae is a medical examiner, and Monty is a tech whiz.

I’m really looking forward to seeing where the team will travel this season and what we might learn about their personal lives, as well as what kind of bad guys we’ll see! With Criminal Minds in the name, there’s sure to be some baddies!

On tonight’s premiere, “Lost Souls,” Unit Chief Jack Garrett and his international response team are called to Tanzania when a 23-member church group disappears. Kirsten Vangsness guest stars as Penelope Garcia & Sherry Stringfield guest stars as Jack’s wife Karen.

Don’t miss the season premiere tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, The Goldbergs, Lethal Weapon, Major Crimes, Modern Family, Property Brothers, black-ish, Bakers vs. Fakers, & Six.

Last week’s Lethal Weapon was all about the grass being greener on the other side, at least for Murtaugh. When he and Riggs were up against a Koreatown gang and a drug war, they had to work with a detective who knew more about that culture, and Murtaugh got along well with the guy, who was all about following the rules, calling/waiting for backup, etc. In the end, though, I think he realized working with Riggs has been good for him. The funniest part was when Riggs was drugged by the woman who turned out to be the killer. Riggs sober (well, at least not high on drugs…) is pretty amusing. But Riggs high on drugs? Hysterical. I loved him riding on top of the car (according to the MythBusters, that’s impossible. LOL) and saying hi to Roger, who went by going the other way. The saddest part of the episode was Trish trying to set up Riggs with a friend. I loved Riggs’s telling her that someday he’ll have to move on, but not yet.

On tonight’s episode, “Lawmen,” Murtaugh and Riggs are pitted against the LA Sheriff’s department when the killing of a Texas Ranger leads them to believe a possible misuse of power is at play. Just as the partners are sure they’ve found their culprit, the case becomes even more complicated when a dark secret is dug up from Captain Avery’s past. Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Major Crimes) and Scott William Winters (Law & Order: SVU) guest star.

To learn Captain Avery’s dark secret, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.
