I really enjoyed the first season of NBC’s travel-reality series Better Late Than Never, which found actors William Shatner and Henry Winkler and sports stars Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman traveling across Asia with comedian Jeff Dye. The guys didn’t have their usual celebrity creature comforts as they immersed themselves into new cultures, trying strange new foods and activities, checking things off their bucket lists. It was a lot of fun watching these old strangers bicker with one another but ultimately become the best of friends. And having the younger comedian tagging along as their sidekick helps to balance out the show and bring another perspective to the group.

Tonight, NBC is giving viewers a preview of the second season, which has the group getting back together, this time to head out on a European adventure. The second season will find this ragtag group of celebrities heading to Munich, Berlin, Lithuania, Sweden, Barcelona, Madrid, and Morocco. Even though it has been two years since their original trip, the chemistry between these guys instantly returns when they reunite at the airport. I didn’t realize how much I had missed this series until I checked out tonight’s episode – this show is so much fun and has me constantly laughing out loud! After tonight’s special preview premiere, the season will continue after the new year.

On tonight’s episode, “Munich,” the first stop is Munich, where the guys immerse themselves in the culture, customs, and traditions of the city, including participating in Oktoberfest. They also go to the Bavarian Alps, where they recreate “The Hills Are Alive” moment from The Sound of Music.

See the guys reunite and head to Munich tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superior Donuts, Lucifer, The Gifted, and Ill Behaviour.

If you enjoy this series, I’d also recommend checking out the Netflix original series Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father, which was released at the end of September, as it has a very similar vibe of a young comedian taking his elderly father on a trip across Southeast Asia.

I was a big fan of Cash Cab back in the day (ya know, way back from 2005-2013. LOL), a game show that took place in a New York taxi minivan. Host Ben Bailey would pick up a fare, and on their drive to their destination, they would play a trivia game in order to win money. Like a lot of trivia game shows, the contestants could seek help – using pedestrians on the street and by calling friends or family. If they got three questions wrong, though, Ben would pull over and drop them off, regardless of how far they were from their destination.

The show is back tonight, along with host Ben Bailey. This season, some passengers will be joined by a guest celebrity who will help the passengers rack up the cash. The celebrity line-up includes Matthew Perry, Brooke Shields, Scott Bakula, Gilbert Gottfried, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin, & Susie Essman. I can’t wait to find out how they’ve revamped the series and see if the show is as fun as it was before!

On tonight’s episode, “Celebrity Edition: Scott Bakula,” two rowdy brothers from Alabama test their luck in the cab; an unsuspecting couple are headed uptown when their ride is hijacked by celebrity Scott Bakula.

Check out the new season starting tonight on Discovery Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great Christmas Light Fight, Man With a Plan, Holiday Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, & Christmas Cookie Challenge.

My favorite new show of the season by far is The Brave. I love the cast and their chemistry, I love the cases and story lines, and overall, it is just the one show that most makes me want to sit and watch ASAP each week – even more so than most of the returning shows! Last week’s episode was a lot of fun. A Russian drone crashed near the Mongolia/China border, and they quickly figured out that it was so technologically advanced that it had been flown over the northwest corner of the US without our notice, only able to realize it after. So Dalton’s team was deployed (they had to parachute in because they were going to be there in secret, not alerting the Mongolian authorities) to get to it before the Russians could retrieve it, in order to allow us to get a sample of the “skin” used so we could update our systems so things using the “skin” would be seen by our radar.

When they got there, they came across the village that the Russians had already beaten them to – killing many and burning out their huts. After gaining the villagers’ trust and helping tend to a wounded young man, they learned where the drone had gone down. Unfortunately, it was on the China side of the border, which meant they had to go in dark – no comms, etc. After a lot of action and Dalton nearly getting caught and shot, they were able to make it back with a good-sized sample of the skin, no worse for the wear. It was pretty awesome. I especially liked how Patricia faked out the Russian guy who was spying on her when she went to meet with her friend – who he assumed was from the Chinese government.

Back early in the season, at the end of the episode, we watched a man drive a truck onto the beach where the team had been hanging out with and playing soccer with a bunch of kids and families. We didn’t hear much in the next episode, although it was mentioned, but I knew that had to come up again. Then in a later episode, the team was up against a bad guy and rather than kill him, they bugged him in order to gain future intel. Both of those things come up again this week in the fall finale. It should be exciting!

On tonight’s episode, “Desperate Times,” after embarking on mission after mission to keep the world safe, the team is confronted with a task that hits close to home. When things go sideways, the only option is to risk one of their own for their final shot to settle the personal score.

See if the entire team makes it out alive tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, Man With a Plan, Holiday Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, Christmas Cookie Challenge, & Scorpion.

Tonight, FOX kicks off the new family adventure series, The Gifted, which is set in the Marvel universe of The X-Men. Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer, Shots Fired, True Blood), the tough district attorney in charge of prosecuting crimes committed by mutants, suddenly finds himself on the other side of the law when his teenage children, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind, The Goldbergs, Gotham) and Andy (Percy Hynes White, Night at the Museum 3) discover they have mutant powers. Reed and separated wife/nurse Caitlin (Amy Acker, Person of Interest, Angel) take their kids on the run, where they encounter the mutant underground, led by John Proudstar/Thunderbird (Blair Redford, Satisfaction). The other mutants include Marcos Diaz/Eclipse (Sean Teale, Reign), who uses his powers to help smuggle mutants into Mexico; Clarice Fong/Blink (Jamie Chung, Gotham), who has the ability to teleport; and Lorna Dane/Polaris (Emma Dumont, Aquarius), who has magnetic abilities (wonder who she could be related to!). The series also stars Coby Bell (Burn Notice) as a man who struggles with the cold-blooded requirements of his job of rounding up the mutants.

This is one of the few new fall shows I haven’t had a chance to check out, but at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got to talk with some of the cast about the series, and they got me really excited to check out tonight’s premiere. (You can find the videos from those interviews at NoReruns.net) The series is written by Matt Nix (APB, Burn Notice), the pilot was directed by Bryan Singer — who also directed several of the X-Men films — and the executive producers include Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, and Jim Chory, all of whom have had extensive experience with other Marvel TV shows and X-Men films. So there is a lot of great talent both in front of and behind the camera for this series, which makes it very promising. Also, FX recently did an excellent job with its X-Men universe series Legion, so I’m hoping for more of the same with FOX.

On tonight’s premiere, “eXposed,” a suburban couple’s lives are rocked by the discovery that their children possess mutant powers, forcing the family to go on the lam from a hostile government and seek help from an underground network of mutants.

Meet the newest mutants tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, The Big Bang Theory, 9JKL, Me, Myself & I, and Lucifer.

Lucifer has been heating up episode by episode, and it’s all about to come to a head. Last week’s episode, we watched Maze and Lucifer fight it out about how Lucifer has not been honest with Maze concerning the reasons behind him trying to get back to heaven. Maze was hurt because Lucifer didn’t come to her with the plan and her part in it. They fought in the streets, and both of them ended up pretty banged up.

Also in the episode, Charlotte was slowly coming unraveled, quite literally, where light was spewing out of her body. She accidentally killed someone when he stabbed her and the light came pouring out. Hopefully, her sons can get her under control before she kills anyone else.

On tonight’s season finale, “The Good, The Bad, and the Crispy,” after Charlotte accidentally charbroils a man to death in self-defense, Lucifer must try and keep Chloe from figuring out the truth. Lucifer puts Maze in charge of finding Charlotte and Amenadiel, who have both gone missing in light of recent circumstances, while he finds a permanent solution for the ticking time bomb he calls Mom.

To see how Lucifer deals with his mother, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Still Star-Crossed.
