My pick tonight has to be the season finale of Blue Bloods. All season long, we’ve been waiting for the Jamie/Eddie wedding, and tonight is it! But first, last week saw the return of Eddie’s incarcerated father, who contacted Jamie and asked him to come visit the prison. Turns out he wanted Jamie to talk to his dad and whoever else and get him a furlough so he could walk Eddie down the aisle. He lied to Jamie about Eddie having been writing him, telling him that’s what she wanted. For a bit, it looked like it was going to happen, but then when Eddie and Jamie went back to talk to him, he called her an angel, and she remembered that he only called her that when he wanted help out of a jam. She claimed he was once again pulling some con and turned and walked out. Guess there will be no Daddy Janko at the wedding!

Elsewhere in the episode, we learned that Nicky, who was graduating college, got a job with the Justice Coalition, which didn’t sit well with the rest of the family, including her mother and grandfather, since they’re usually going up against the NYPD. In the end, Nicky talked to Frank and convinced him that she knew what she was doing. Also, Henry had a package delivered that was then stolen by a “porch pirate,” who turned out to be a neighbor’s drug-addicted granddaughter. Henry and the neighbor seemed to have a little spark, so maybe there will be something more next season? And finally, the case that Danny and Baez worked dealt with really creepy twins, one of who murdered a woman, and when they were caught, they went all creepy with each other and then the alpha twin shot his brother and then himself. Uber creepy story line, really.

On tonight’s episode, “Something Blue,” as Jamie and Eddie’s wedding day approaches, Frank worries about the toast he’ll deliver at their rehearsal dinner. Also, Erin interviews a witness whose story leads her to doubt Eddie’s honesty, since she took his initial statement, and Danny and Baez unravel the complicated love life of a young homicide victim.

See if the wedding goes off without a hitch on tonight’s season finale on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MacGyver, The Cool Kids, & Hawaii Five-0.

One week without MacGyver was too much for me, so I’m glad there’s a new episode tonight. When we last saw our favorite undercover heroes, there was a bomb planted on Mac’s dad’s car, but it was Bozer who ended up stuck in the car until Riley came up with a way to free him without setting the bomb off. This new bomb-making villain is more sophisticated than anyone Mac has ever seen, so it is going to be an interesting next few episodes.

On tonight’s episode, “No-Go + High-Voltage + Rescue,” when two American tourists go missing while doing a “No-Go Scavenger Hunt” through some of the world’s most dangerous countries, the Phoenix team goes undercover as backpackers to find them and bring them home alive.

To see if Phoenix can save the day again, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, and Proven Innocent.

It has been a couple weeks since we’ve had a new episode of MacGyver, and I’m starting to go through withdrawal. Thankfully we will all get our fix tonight. This show not only has action and humor, but the cast has incredible chemistry. Jack leaving was hard, but in the end the team is adjusting quite well and I really like Desi. She has a unique chemistry with Mac that I hope will end up in a relationship for those two.

On tonight’s episode, “Murdoc + Helman + Hit,” when Nicholas Helman resurfaces to carry out a killing spree, the Phoenix is forced to get help from the one person who knows him best… His protégé, Murdoc.

To see if the team can get the help they need from Murdoc, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, and Proven Innocent.

We get two episodes of Hawaii Five-0 tonight – the second directed by series star Alex O’Loughlin. Fun! But first…let’s talk about last week’s episode, which was exciting because it coupled a hurricane with a drug lord being hunted by an assassin. Steve was especially unhappy hearing that the drug lord was going to be brought to Iolani Palace to wait out the storm, not only because of all the civilians who were taking shelter there but because he knew a family that had been killed by one of the bad guy’s bombs. He felt a little better later on after learning the guy was turning State’s evidence about rival cartels. Unfortunately, they almost lost him when they figured out an assassin from one of those rival cartels had snuck in to hunt him down and take him out – with the assistance of one of the FBI team escorting the bad guy. And that assassin stabbed a young deputy. We never did learn if that poor guy lived or died. As for the assassin and the drug lord, the assassin was killed and the drug lord tried to escape, nearly getting killed by the wrong FBI agent, but the team saved him and then took him back into custody.

As for the rest of the team… Tani & Junior were sent out into the early bits of the storm to help rescue any stranded civilians or anyone who was refusing to evacuate the required evac zones. Unfortunately for Tani, she stumbled into a stash house and got tied up, only to talk the guy’s kid into untying her. Then she learned what the place was, right before the even worse bad guys showed up to get to the money (and drugs?) kept there at the house, and she had the family (the ones who had originally tied her up) hide in the closet while she took on the three guys alone. She was just about to have to fight it out with the last one after running out of ammunition, but Junior showed up just in time and shot the guy. And then there was Danny…who stayed safe at his house with Rachel and Charlie (Grace was on a college tour or something in California.). Why Danny was able to stay home when they were so busy at the Palace, I don’t know. But whatever. There were a lot of sparks between Rachel and Danny, so we’ll see if they’re leading them to get back together this season or not.

On tonight’s first episode, “Hapai ke kuko, hanau ka hewa (When Covetousness is Conceived, Sin is Born),” when the top salesperson for a beauty company/pyramid scheme is murdered, Five-0 sifts through a long list of possible suspects who would want her dead. Also, Adam befriends a homeless man estranged from his family. Matthew Lawrence guest stars.

Then on the second episode, “E’ao lu’au a kualima (Offer Young Taro Leaves To),” Junior is torn between his duties as a member of Five-0 and his feelings for his former girlfriend when her new love, the father of her son, is one of the culprits in a bank-heist-turned-homicide. J.J. Soria guest stars.

Don’t miss a fun two hours in Hawaii tonight on CBS starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, MacGyver, The Cool Kids, & Proven Innocent.

From 2002-2007, the Disney Channel animated action comedy-adventure series Kim Possible followed the adventures of teenage crime fighter Kim Possible, who balanced saving the world with dealing with the normal problems of a high school student. Helping her on her missions was clumsy best friend Ron Stoppable and his pet naked mole rat Rufus. Providing them with remote technical assistance was 10-year old computer genius Wade. While Team Possible came up against many different criminals, their biggest foe was super-villain Dr. Drakken and his sidekick Shego (who was often the more grounded and sensible of the pair).

Tonight, these characters return in a brand new live-action Disney Channel Original Movie, Kim Possible. In the film, Kim (Sadie Stanley) and Ron (Sean Giambrone, The Goldbergs) enter high school and become friends with Athena (Ciara Riley Wilson, OMG!). With Kim’s guidance, Athena transforms into the newest member of Team Possible and soon starts to eclipse Kim. When Drakken (Todd Stashwick, 12 Monkeys) and Shego (Taylor Ortega) resurface in Middleton, the team must stop them. The movie also stars Issac Ryan Brown (Raven’s Home) as Wade, Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) as Kim’s mother Dr. Ann Possible, Patton Oswalt (A.P. Bio) as Professor Dementor, and Christy Carlson Romano (the original voice of Kim) as Poppy Blu.

I was a huge fan of the original animated series and can’t wait to check out tonight’s film to see how these characters translate into the real world.

Go back to your childhood (or in Jenny’s case, her son’s childhood…she sighed sadly…) tonight on Disney Channel at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Doom Patrol, The Umbrella Academy, Fresh Off the Boat, Proven Innocent, and Strike Back.
