MasterChef: Junior is always an exciting process to watch because the kitchen is filled with incredibly talented young people. The only issue I really struggle with is watching the kids when they run into issues or start to fail, because they get teary eyed and stressed out. Last week Cydney got through by the skin of her teeth after her vegan burger fell on the floor, but fortunately for her, two others messed up a little bit more. Eddie and Sam just missed the mark slightly with the vegan burger challenge, and I was definitely sad to see them go.

On tonight’s episode, “Kitchen Emergency,” the Top 16 face off in their first team challenge, during which they cook lunch for first responders. Each team will have to create a dish featuring a delicious filet mignon, and the guests will vote on which is better. The team with the most votes will win the challenge. Then, it’s up to the judges to determine which two cooks from the losing team will head home.

To find out how the young cooks make out with their team challenge, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

Tonight, after The Blacklist midseason finale, NBC will kick off The Blacklist: Redemption. This new spin-off series finds former blacklisters teaming up as part of an elite mercenary group trying to redeem themselves by solving problems governments can’t legally get involved in themselves. Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen, Hemlock Grove) recruits her son Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) to join her at the Halcyon Corporation and take on some impossible missions. Scottie’s skilled team also includes Nez Rowan (Tawny Cypress, Unforgettable), hacker Dumont (Adrian Martinez, A Gifted Man) and lethal assassin Matias Solomon (Edi Gathegi, StartUp), who has a bad history with Tom.

This show looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun – like a weekly cinematic action/adventure in the vein of Mission: Impossible or Oceans Eleven. I really like how they’ve brought together all these past characters from The Blacklist – some have appeared on many episodes while others just one or two – and have given them this new world to play in. How will these criminals work together? Can they really trust one another? And what kind of cases will they tackle? I’m looking forward to seeing how the series explores Tom and Scottie’s relationship. He only recently learned that his mother was alive, so I’m assuming we will find out more about why and how she left him as a child while also seeing them form a new bond while working together.

On tonight’s premiere, “Leland Bray,” a routine trip to New York turns perilous when ex-operative Tom Keen is recruited by a mercenary chief to help rescue a kidnapped CIA agent.

See how the new series begins tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Superstore, Powerless, MasterChef Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Planet Earth II, Top Chef, and Sun Records.

I didn’t get into Impractical Jokers until the last season or so. I thought it was a normal hidden camera show, which I find funny but get tired of really quickly. But my son really liked it and was watching it one day in the living room, and I saw it and laughed harder than I’d laughed in a while. These four friends (Sal, Joe, Murr, & Q) are an absolute riot to watch. This is must-see TV in our house, and if you give it a chance, it just might be in yours as well. Tonight’s a good night to check it out because it’s the season premiere. And don’t miss the “Inside Jokes” episode after, where you get to see behind-the-scenes shots and information during a previously aired episode. Those are always hysterical!

On tonight’s episode, “Swim Shady,” the guys are hit with some bad reception while working behind a desk; the guys head to the park where they ask strangers for advice on their questionable life choice; tonight’s big loser is tasked with taking photos of a water aerobics class.

Find out who loses big tonight on TruTV at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, Powerless, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, Top Chef, My Kitchen Rules, & Beat Bobby Flay.

undateable2015smallTonight, Undateable closes out its live season with a special 1-hour finale. I’ve had mixed feelings about this past season. I really like the idea of a live show and the fun/danger that adds – What could go wrong? or Who will mess up their lines or experience some sort of prop malfunction? Most of this cast comes from a stand-up-comedy background, so they are used to performing live, and it shows. They have great chemistry and work really well together, and adding Whitney Cummings into the mix was a great decision. It’s also impressive that they’ve been doing live shows for both the East and West Coasts. The one thing that bugs me about this new live format is how the actors will often break character to make personal jabs at one another to solicit a reaction. While this may be funny, it completely takes me out of the show and makes it feel more like I’m watching actors interact on stage rather than watching characters come to life in a story.

I’m not sure how the show has been doing in the ratings or if it even has a chance of returning for a fourth season. But I’m sure tonight’s double-episode finale will go all out and probably feature a bunch of fun cameos like the season premiere. Plus, this week’s musical guest will be the Backstreet Boys!

Catch the live 1-hour finale tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm, MasterChef: Junior, Second Chance, and Childrens Hospital.

hawaiifiveo18smallIt’s been a month since the last Hawaii Five-0 due to the holidays, and it was a tough one. The brother of a promising young boxer was killed, and the prime suspect was the reigning boxing champion – a loud, brash “bad boy” of boxing. Turned out the guy was not quite like he portrayed himself in public, and he wasn’t the killer. The killer turned out to be a man Gabriel hired to get security access to the fight from the victim, but when he wouldn’t give it to them, the guy killed him because he believed that’s what Gabriel wanted him to do. In the end, the victim’s brother got in the ring and nearly went down, but he ended up winning the fight like we all had to know he’d do. It turned out that Gabriel wanted in because his men were going to kill the heads of all the crime families, who were all in attendance. Five-0 saved them all, but in the end, Gabriel stopped the ambulance carrying the one who’d made a deal with him and ended up killing him. This guy is so dirty. He needs to be caught…soon! Especially since he’s the one ultimately responsible for Adam’s predicament.

Speaking of Adam… Elsewhere during the episode, he and Kono spent some time together before he had to surrender himself to the prison. He went to the temple and prayed (I’m assuming that’s what it was…) and then they had a sweet, sad good-bye scene outside the prison gates. He gave her his ring for safekeeping and asked her to wait, telling her a story of his grandparents, who were separated for three years when his grandfather was drafted to the Japanese Navy. Eighteen months is going to be a long time, but I can’t imagine Kono won’t wait for him. I hope she does. I love Adam and adore them together!

On tonight’s episode, “Kuleana (One’s Personal Sense of Responsibility),” while Steve and Danny attend a couples retreat in Maui to work on their partnership issues, Kamekona’s dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

Find out how Kamekona’s past comes back tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
