There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding The Voice since last week’s eliminations, and I am very torn. I love Adam Levine, but what he did during eliminations last week was horrible. When he was supposed to be advocating for DeAndre, he used the time to plead for America to save Reagan because she was sick and didn’t get a chance to perform for herself. This should never have happened, because if a contestant can’t perform, they should be eliminated no matter how much you love them. We shall see going forward how many viewers are lost over this situation, because there is a lot of anger over this.

On tonight’s episode, “Semi-Finals,” the top 8 artists perform live in front of coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton for America’s vote. Plus, the artists team up for competitive mashup duets.

To find out what the judges have to say about this week’s performances, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Neighborhood, Magnum PI, Arrow, and Bull.

It’s another night of fun cooking shows for me, and first up is the season premiere of The Great American Baking Show on ABC. Last season was scrapped after the season premiere when judge Johnny Iuzzini came under fire for sexual harassment (unrelated to this show). Because of that, we missed out on watching this show last year. So it’s been almost a year now since we last saw it, and now we get to meet a new cast as well as a new host and judge!

Ayesha Curry won’t be back as host. Alongside Anthony “Spice” Adams will be Emma Bunton…otherwise known as Baby Spice in the Spice Girls group. And joining last season’s judge (& judge on The Great British Baking Show!) Paul Hollywood is fabulous pastry chef Sherry Yard, who also judged Halloween Baking Championship. I don’t know if I care about either of hosts – I don’t know them well enough yet to – but I really enjoy both judges, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what they have up their sleeves for the bakers this season.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Cake and Pastry Week,” it’s on your marks, get set, bake…slices of cake, and sweet and savory pastries.

Meet the contestants and new judge and host tonight on ABC starting at 9/8c.

I love Wednesday nights because of #OneChicago. Having all three Chicago-based dramas on one night is awesome. And even though tonight is the fall finale for all three, I’m still excited for it – maybe especially because it’s the fall finales. They’ve promised that all three will be filled with surprises and excitement…and having seen a screener for each of them, I can promise they weren’t lying! Between Will & Natalie on Med, Casey, Naomi, Severide, & Kidd on Fire, and Atwater and the others on PD, there’s plenty of drama, shockers, and even tears on tap tonight.

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Med, “Death Do Us Part,” Will and Natalie prepare for their big day, but an unsuspecting Will soon finds himself sidetracked. Dr. Charles disagrees with Goodwin on how to best handle a patient’s treatment while Dr. Choi and April are on their own when a pregnant woman delivers. Dr. Rhodes finds himself operating on a patient that is of great importance to Det. Halstead.

Then on Chicago Fire, “Always a Catch,” stakes are high when a massive car pile-up on the freeway impacts someone dear to the firehouse family. Brett and Foster encounter a harrowing call while Kidd and Severide find their relationship being tested.

Finally on Chicago PD, “Descent,” in an attempt to dig himself out of a hole and save someone close to him, Antonio (Jon Seda) crosses a line that puts the entire team at risk.

Don’t miss all the excitement tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, Single Parents, & Criminal Minds.

Tonight, NBC premieres a new 2-part special, LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, which combines two of my favorite franchises. The story is set before the events of the first Jurassic World film. Simon Masrani, the founder of Jurassic World, has come up with an amazing new exhibit for the park. He tasks right-hand-woman Claire Dearing with transporting three dinosaurs across the park to the top-secret attraction. So Claire hires animal behaviorist Owen Grady, sight-unseen, to help her in this task. Of course, things don’t go as smoothly as planned – and not just due to the personality clash between the pair. What seemed like a simple task quickly turns into a wild adventure.

I have been a fan of the LEGO franchise for a long time – first the video games and then the movies. They are always so much fun, mixing humor and action with lots of great pop-culture references. Add to that the characters and setting from the Jurassic Park/World films, which are among my all-time favorite movies, and how could you go wrong?! A couple years ago NBC aired another LEGO Jurassic World special, but this one is twice as long and also gives us more of an origin story, showing the first meetings between Claire and Owen and Owen and Blue. This special looks like it will be a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to check out the back-to-back parts tonight!

Catch the two-part special tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Will & Grace and I Feel Bad.

I’ve been pretty captivated the last few months by the new team on Lethal Weapon, which teams up Seann William Scott with Damon Wayans as two unorthodox LAPD detectives, even without having seen the first two seasons. Admittedly, I am obsessed with everything Scott’s done post-Stiffler, but the show does get on, on its own merits.

The last new episode opened with Cole (Scott) MIA, having flaked on his daughter. When she called Murtaugh to look for him, he recommended his daughter Rianna to babysit. Murtaugh was next at the scene of an abduction. He concluded that Cole was abducted by the Vasquez cartel. At the cartel torture house, they pulled out a few of Cole’s fingernails before Sofia Vasquez revealed herself to him. She had him buried alive rather than shooting him. Murtaugh confronted Cole’s CIA handler, Tom Barnes, who insisted he didn’t betray Cole. He “put his best man on the job” and expected him to take out Vasquez.

Throughout the episode, we saw Cole and his baby mama, Natalie, in their first meetings overseas. He was undercover as a photographer and she was a nurse. They fell in love and she got preggers. Back in the present, other former undercover agent, “The Gute” got them a lead that put them on Cole’s trail, but all they found was his bloody discarded fingernails. Murtaugh again confronted Barnes, who recommended they flip former cartel lieutenant Benny Aliva, whom LAPD had in holding. In flashbacks, we saw that Natalie became pregnant while still stationed overseas.

Murtaugh tracked down Cole with Aliva’s help and dug him up before he died. While recovering in the hospital, Cole got immersed in the memory of talking to Natalie about plans for a honeymoon in Bali. Later that night, Cole KO’d Murtaugh and locked him in Mrs. Murtaugh’s trunk so he could go confront Vasquez on his own. Murtaugh woke up to his daughter stealing the car to go out with her bf. When the boyfriend turned creeper, Roger emerged and took the car back. Cole saved Sofia Vasquez from the hit team Aliva was leading against her, with a last-minute assist from Murtaugh. In the final scene, Cole professed his love for Natalie was undying and she kissed him but was very conflicted about the timing.

On tonight’s episode, “What the Puck,” Cole wants to talk to Natalie about their relationship before it’s too late, but a wrench is thrown in his plans after he bumps into a new ADA, Erica (guest star Nishi Munshi). Meanwhile, after being kicked out of the house for Trish’s girl’s night, Murtaugh finds himself an unlikely friend.

See if Cole makes a decision about Natalie tonight on FOX at 9/8c.
