I’m super excited because another favorite game show that I used to watch reruns of all the time, Press Your Luck, is premiering tonight! If you don’t know this one, this game show’s contestants answer questions to earn spins and then use those spins on the “Big Board,” to win cash and other prizes. Unfortunately, the “WHAMMY” can get them. I don’t know how they’ll handle it now, but at least back in the day, the whammies were these cute little…elf-like creatures dressed in various costumes that walked across the TV screen and stole all the money if a contestant landed on them.

Elizabeth Banks is the new host. She’s been in a lot of things, but for me she’s most notably from Scrubs. I hope she’ll be a fun host and that they kept all the fun Whammies in their silly costumes and actions. I’ll definitely be tuning in!

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on ABC at 10/9c**.

**Unless you’re like me in the Kansas City area, which won’t get to see it until midnight, due to the KC mayoral debate. Boo! LOL

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Chopped, Blood & Treasure, Sweet Home Sextuplets, & Songland.

My pick tonight is NBC’s newest drama, The Inbetween. Relative newcomer Harriet Dyer plays Cassie Bedford, a young woman who was born with the rare ability of visions, events that have already occurred or ones that will happen in the future. She also can see and communicate with ghosts. Her father is Detective Tom Hackett, played by the sexy and talented Paul Blackthorne (Arrow & The Dresden Files to name a couple of his latest and most famous roles). When he and his new partner, former FBI Agent Damien Asante (Justin Cornwell, I am the Night on TNT and CBS’s Training Day), need help solving a dark and twisty murder, Cassie agrees (albeit reluctantly) to help. Unfortunately, once she opens that door, the dead don’t want to let her rest.

I’ve seen the first couple of episodes and really enjoyed it. Cassie’s ability is nothing earth-shatteringly new, but it’s still creepy and spooky and all things ghostly. This show has been in the works for quite a while, and I don’t know that NBC has been advertising it much (although I don’t watch a lot of stuff on NBC right now, so maybe they have?), but I’d suggest giving it a shot because at least the first two episodes are really great.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Cassie helps her father and his partner solve a young woman’s murder using her unique psychic powers. She also encounters a supernatural spirit, Ed Roven (recurring guest star, Sean Bolger), whose evil transcends time.

See how Cassie’s visions help solve the murder tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, American Ninja Warrior, MasterChef, Dinner Takes All, Guy’s Grocery Games, The Hot Zone, Best Room Wins, & The Butcher.

My pick tonight is a twist on the songster reality competition show, Songland. Instead of singers, this time the contestants will be competing to be the top song writer. Each week, one guest artist (including Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Kelsea Ballerini, Macklemore, will.i.am, & more!) will visit “Songland” to hear unknown songwriters pitch their original material. Four songwriters will perform their original tracks in front of the guest artist and three big-time producers in music: Ryan Tedder, the lead singer of OneRepublic and a four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer for Adele, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé; Ester Dean, a Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer for Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, as well as an actress who starred in the Pitch Perfect film franchise; and Shane McAnally, a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer for Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, and Sam Hunt, who has 38 #1 country records and was named the 2019 ACM Songwriter of the Year.

Each song’s lyrics, arrangements, beats, melody, and story will be considered by the panel as the producers and guest artist engage in a lively discussion about ways to creatively adapt them to better fit the style and sensibility of the recording artist of the week. After the performances, the guest artist will choose three songwriters to move forward to the studio and pair each songwriter with the producer best suited to perfecting their songs. In the studio, the songs will take shape in unexpected ways as the songwriter and producer duos work together to win over the recording artist. In the end, a winner will be chosen and their song will be recorded and released for a global audience. What a fun twist to the other music competition shows, yeah?

On tonight’s episode, “John Legend,” undiscovered songwriters are put center stage as they pitch their original material to mega-star John Legend and a panel of chart-topping music producers.

Check out this fun new show tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Jeff Dunham: Talking Heads, America’s Got Talent, MasterChef Junior, Chopped, The Hot Zone, Jeff Foxworthy: Stand-up Guy, Blood & Treasure, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.

I’m excited because Blindspot is back tonight (after the last one over a month ago!), with just three episodes left to go this season. Last time, a huge corporate party was invaded by security and everyone was required to relinquish all their electronics. Turned out there was a data breach, and what had been stolen were the files that contained launch codes to a satellite the company, alongside the DOD, had developed that was armed with missiles, currently in space, and fully operational. Eek! The team (minus Jane & Weller) investigates and figures out that one of the senior VPs had a kid with an insulin pump, and when the files couldn’t be found anywhere else, they knew they had to be on the pump. They assumed it was the kid’s father, but it actually turned out to be his mother…who was a Russian sleeper agent or something. They (including Weller & Jane now) cornered her where she was hiding out with her son and about to give the files over to the Russians, but Weller convinced her to do the right thing by her son.

Meanwhile, we met Weller’s mother, who got addicted to Oxy and now owes a bad guy a lot of money. She’s didn’t abandon her kids to their abusive father. She was going to take them with her but couldn’t because he would have killed them all. Weller eventually forgave her, paid off her debts, and said he’d get her into rehab.

And finally, Rich and Patterson met with crazy Kathy, the third of the trio of Three Blind Mice. She had been released from prison on good behavior, Unfortunately, Rich and Patterson realized she’d already done a bank hack, and it led them to her apartment. She was all happy happy joy joy, even saying she was going to get married and she wanted them to be in the wedding party. She dressed Patterson up in a HORRIBLE gown, but Rich was pretty happy with his tux. LOL Surprise, surprise. In the end, they bribed her with $$ to stop hacking, but that’ll never work…especially since her new partner-in-crime to take Rich and Patterson down is none other than…Dominic! Dun dun dun!

On tonight’s episode, “Coder to Killer,” a horrifying and vengeful villain threatens the FBI. Weller considers his priorities. Zapata and Reade try to navigate their living situation. Patterson explores a budding interest.

Find out Patterson’s new interest and what priorities Weller needs to consider tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

Jenny’s Choice #1

On the previous episode of SEAL Team, the team jumped out of the plane in order to hike to their target, but Ray’s chute didn’t open. It took a while for them to figure out that his backup HAD opened, but they believed he’d landed in enemy territory. The higher-ups said to finish their objective and Ray would meet them at the exit point. But Jason and the others talked to Blackburn and got the okay to go into enemy territory and find him. It was a very good thing they did, because it wasn’t long before he was found and on the run. Although I did love him hanging in the tree and trying not to move while the two men were below him. If it weren’t for the dang knife he’d dropped! While on the run, Ray sneaked into a small village (which made me very happy to live where I do…) and ended up taking a woman hostage when she walked into her home and found him. He threatened her life if she yelled out to the other villagers, but his crisis of faith finally came to a head when (I think?) she started praying. He realized he couldn’t just execute her, that if this was God’s plan, then he’d either get caught or escape before she could alert them. He finally let her go and ran out the back, and just before he could get captured or killed, his team appeared. Then Mandy spoke to her counterpart in that area and was able to convince her (ie: bribe her with the leaked location of a terrorist her country wanted, even though Mandy giving her the location would be without her boss’s boss’s boss’s or whatever consent) to send in a rescue helicopter to grab the team – and grab them they did. They lowered a rope, and each member clipped themselves to it, and off it went, the team flying on the rope in a row below it! It was awesome.

Other big news was Stella came to visit Clay to see how he was doing. He told her all about Swanny and the fight he’s now undertaken on Swanny’s behalf. It was a good visit, and I actually have hope that MAYBE there will be a reunion between the two of them. Clay also visited his father in the hopes that maybe his dad will take the fight on himself and use his position at the public access TV to help out. And FINALLY, Lisa went to visit her sister in order to invite her to her OCS graduation, and the visit didn’t go well. Her sister blames her for their other sister’s death, and she was kind of a witch to Lisa. She didn’t show at the graduation, which meant Lisa had no one there to support her and see her graduate…until Clay slid into the reserved seat. It was a sweet moment.

So tonight’s finale… Stella and Ash Spencer are back, so hopefully we’ll see some movement on the Clay/Stella and Clay/Swanny’s medal/TBIs fronts. And Commander Shaw is back, which means he’s still going to try to split up the team. I mean, even if he does, it can’t last, since without the team, there wouldn’t be a show, and it’s already been renewed for next season. Still… I hope if he does split them up, it doesn’t last long into next season!

On tonight’s episode, “Never Out of the Fight,” Bravo team’s future is on the line when Commander Shaw recommends they be split up, but Jason’s unit has one final mission to prove him wrong.

Find out Commander Shaw’s decision tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
