I’m not sure I’ll actually watch Facebook Watch’s newest show, but it looks intriguing and has a fun voice cast. Human Discoveries is an animated series featuring a group of friends living at the dawn of human civilization. They’re the first to discover necessities like fire and the wheel. But much more importantly, they’ll stumble onto humanity’s best, and worst, innovations. Art. Alcohol. Fashion. Racism. Small talk. And, much to their confusion, monogamy. Voicing the characters are Anna Kendrick, Lisa Kudrow, Zac Efron, Lamorne Morris, Jillian Bell, & Paul Scheer.

I can’t find any episode title or description, but check it out tonight on Facebook Watch at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bring the Funny, Chopped Junior, Chopped, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.

Tonight, one of my favorite comedies, The Detour, returns for its fourth season on TBS. Last season, the Parker family headed to Alaska and assumed fake identities to hide from the authorities, but as usual, they managed to mess things up and went back on the run. Meanwhile, the somewhat crazy Edie had been stalking Nate after she secretly impregnated herself with his sperm. It turns out that Edie also happened to be a long-lost sister of Robin’s. (How is she going to react when she finds out that her husband is the father of her niece/nephew?!) In the season finale, the family ended up in an abandoned ghost town filled with LARPers. Delilah used this distraction to exact a plan she had apparently been laying the groundwork for all season. She ran away, stealing her family’s money and a car from an admirer, leaving a message for the rest of her family, requesting that they not look for her.

The new season picks up several months later, with Nate, Robin, and Jared amidst their world-wide search for Delilah. What I love about this show is its blend of physical comedy and deliciously inappropriate humor. This show doesn’t worry about being PC and goes places that many comedies would shy away from. The Parkers are constantly getting into ridiculously awkward situations, and as they try to get out of them, they only succeed in making things ten times worse. Even if they are trying to do the right thing, there is always some sort of misunderstanding or unintended consequences to their actions. I can’t wait to see where the search for Delilah leads the Parkers this season and what kind of craziness they cause in the process. I checked out the first two episodes, and the show is just as wild and insane as ever. Just when you think they can’t top the previous season, they somehow manage to do so!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Search,” the Parkers embark on a world-wide search to find their runaway daughter, Delilah.

Find out how the season starts tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Blood & Treasure, The 100, Animal Kingdom, and Chrisley Knows Best.

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.
