I’ve been enjoying the return of Will & Grace. It’s getting better every episode. Last week, Grace went to the doctor and was put under anesthesia when they found a spot in her breast and needed to do a biopsy. They called her emergency contact…and because Karen doesn’t do her job, Grace’s emergency contact was still Leo, her ex-husband, not Will. So she was shocked when he turned up to take her home. That brought out a lot of old feelings, including resentment and blame about who was responsible for the destruction of their marriage. After Grace talked to Will, she and Leo had another talk (including a kiss!), and they left things on a better note.

Meanwhile, Jack was waiting to see if he’d gotten a commercial (he didn’t…) and took a temp job as a pianist for a boys’ & girls’ club. He was…well, Jack. But Karen showed up and ended up helping out a young girl who had no women in her life and she needed a woman’s advice because she’d…well, become a “woman,” to put it blandly. Karen was shockingly sweet about it while still being Karen. I loved it.

On tonight’s episode, “Grandpa Jack,” Jack is stunned to learn that his estranged son, Elliot (guest star Michael Angarano) has a son of his own, Skip (guest star Jet Jurgensmeyer). Moreover, Skip needs the kind of help only Will and Jack can provide. Grace and Karen behave badly with the hot new guy at work. Jane Lynch and Andrew Rannells also guest star.

Meet Jack’s grandson tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Great News, Beat Bobby Flay, & Chicago Fire.

Tonight, Mr. Robot returns to USA Network to kick off its third season. Last season Elliot went off the grid in an attempt to completely get rid of Mr. Robot. But no matter how hard he tried, his alter ego kept resurfacing. Meanwhile, Darlene took the lead at fsociety, and the group broke into the home of an E Corp lawyer, using it as their new headquarters. Darlene tried to get answers from the Dark Army about what Stage 2 is, but the only information she was able to obtain was that it was Elliot’s plan, and he couldn’t remember anything about it. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Dom DiPierro was looking into both fsociety and the Dark Army – which nearly proved fatal for her. After the diner shootout, she interrogated Darlene, showing her a blackboard with the entire fsociety member hierarchy laid out. In the second season finale, we learned that Tyrell was alive, but Elliot was convinced that he, too, was just in his head – an idea that was quickly disproved when Tyrell shot him.

Could Tyrell still be a figment of Elliot’s imagination? Anything is possible – Elliot could have just shot himself! But if Tyrell is all in his head, who is going to call for help?! What is Stage 2 of the Dark Army’s plan? What evil plan does E Corp going to hatch next on the public? And can Darlene talk her way out of Dom’s seemingly closed case?

Tonight’s third season premiere opens right where we left off, with Elliot lying on the ground, bleeding from a gunshot wound. While the opener won’t address all the open questions, we do get to meet a really fun new character played by Bobby Cannavale! Also, in each of the first two seasons, the series built to a big twist or reveal, and I can’t wait to see what this year’s “Holy crap!” moment will be. I’m looking forward to another exciting season of crazy twists and turns.

On tonight’s premiere, “Eps3.0_Power-Saver-Mode.H,” when Elliot suddenly becomes aware of his situation and realizes the mission he needs to embark on, he seeks Angela’s help; Darlene gets upset about them potentially coming out clean; Elliot deals with a mysterious new person.

Find out what help Elliot seeks from Angela tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The Blacklist, Riverdale, Dynasty, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, The Shannara Chronicles, Channel Zero: No-End House, and Mr. Mercedes.

My favorite new show so far this season is NBC’s The Brave. I’m loving Mike Vogel as Dalton, but the dynamic of the whole team together is great. The premise is a lot of fun too. I’ve loved last week’s episode, where a bad-ass female CIA officer walked into the undercover CIA office in the Russian-stronghold portion of Ukraine to find her two coworkers shot to death and bad guys still in the office. She ended up taking them all out herself even after being shot. During the hour, she was kidnapped and stabbed, but she rocked it, able to keep herself pretty damn safe until Dalton and his team arrived. We also learned a surprising fact about Noah, in that he was top of his class at “spy school.” One thing I was disappointed about was that after the major cliffhanger of the premiere, where the bad guy drove the truck bomb onto the beach where the team had been hanging out and playing soccer with the kids, we didn’t jump back into that story line. In fact, we only got one mention of it at all, where we learned that there had been deaths and injuries of some of the civilians. It was kind of a letdown. Other than that, I’m really enjoying the show, as is my family.

On tonight’s episode, “The Greater Good,” after receiving intel that a serious player in dealing international arms, Ranier Boothe (guest star Andrew Howard), will be visiting Caborca, Mexico, Patricia makes a controversial decision that could lead to a big breakthrough. With Dalton’s team on the ground, they must find a weak link in Boothe’s men in order to carry out the mission. Meanwhile, Noah learns about Hannah’s complicated past in the field.

Find out more about Hannah’s past and see if Dalton’s team can take down some arms dealers tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Good Doctor.

Tonight, Syfy kicks off a new Thursday night lineup, beginning with the second season premiere of Van Helsing. In the first season, Vanessa Helsing awoke from a long coma to find herself in a world overrun by vampires and learned that her young daughter was missing. She banded with a group of survivors while she looked for her daughter. In the process, she discovered that she had special powers — her blood could turn vampires back into humans. Dmitri, the leader of the vampires, managed to capture Vanessa and brought her to his citadel, where he had his doctor perform experiments on her, trying to learn more about her unique blood. However, the experiments seem to have left Vanessa with super-human strength, and she managed to break free. As Vanessa roamed the building, she found her daughter, but Dylan had been turned into a vampire. Meanwhile, Taka, with the help of vampire Rebecca, led a small Resistance army into the citadel to take down the vampires. While the others spread out, he found Dmitri and was about to kill him, when Dmitri made him an offer.

Tonight’s second season premiere picks up right where the first season left off. How will Vanessa deal with her vampire daughter? Will she try to use her blood to save her, or is it already too late? The same goes for Julius, who was also turned at the end of last season. What did Dmitri offer Taka, and will he betray the Resistance? Will Vanessa rejoin the others? How will she react to reuniting with Mohamad after his betrayal last season? It should be another exciting season!

While she’s not in tonight’s episode, Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue) will be joining the cast this season as Scarlett Harker. I’m sure that last name is no coincidence, so I’m looking forward to seeing how she fits into the story. I had a chance to talk with some of the cast members and producers about the show at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. You can find my video interviews at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “Began Again,” Vanessa and Mohamad search for Dylan as Dmitri’s citadel crumbles around them; Flesh acquires an unexpected ally in one of the Resistance Fighters; Taka clashes with the Vampire Elite.

Catch all the action tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

Last week’s premiere of Chicago PD was rough. Don’t get me wrong… It was great, and I enjoyed it. But it was tough for several reasons. One was because Erin was gone. Jay seemed…lost…a couple of times. When he walked through the empty apartment (well, almost empty… what was with that stack of books just randomly left there?!) and found the picture of the two of them, my shipper heart broke. I certainly don’t begrudge Sophia Bush for wanting to move on, but Erin Lindsay was one of my favorite characters on TV, and I loved shipping her and Halstead. Poor Voight was dealing with her absence as well, but he seemed to be handling it better than Halstead. I did like seeing Hailey on the team for good. She’s a good fit with the others so far. As for the story line, it was tough to watch, especially Halstead learning he was the one who shot the little girl, but in the end, it worked out okay. I also wasn’t thrilled about Voight’s former partner, Denny Woods (Mykelti Williamson), being back — having been found to be a “good cop,” really?! — and having been given the task of overseeing an internal investigation of Intelligence. Ugh.

Given the state of affairs in the world right now, tonight’s episode is going to hit hard for many people. But I also hope that it opens peoples’ eyes to show that you can’t judge a book by its cover…meaning you can’t judge one person based on what another person does/other people do. Hopefully it’ll be a good teaching episode as well as an entertaining one.

On tonight’s episode, “The Thing About Heroes,” after a van explodes during a Chicago street festival, a Muslim patrol officer Frank Toma (guest star Ben Youcef) goes missing, and evidence quickly piles up pointing to his involvement. Burgess — who helped train Toma — is desperate to prove his innocence, even if that means going against her superiors.

See how Burgess defends her friend tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, SEAL Team, Worst Cooks in America, American Housewife, Best Baker in America, & Criminal Minds.
