Tonight, FOX kicks off the new paranormal comedy Ghosted, starring Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Craig Robinson (The Office) as mismatched partners recruited by a top-secret government agency to search for a missing agent. Max (Scott) is a brilliant but disgraced astrophysicist who now works at a bookstore. The former Stanford professor lost his credibility after he started making claims that his wife had been abducted by aliens. Meanwhile, Leroy (Robinson) was the best missing persons detective the LAPD ever had, but now he’s a divorced dad working as a mall cop. Heading up the Bureau Underground is Captain Ava Lafrey (Ally Walker, Colony, Longmire), technician Barry Shaw (Adeel Akhtar, Unforgotten, The Night Manager), and Agent Annie (Amber Stevens West, The Carmichael Show).

The series has a bit of an X-Files/Mulder & Scully vibe with the believer and the skeptic partnered up to investigate paranormal cases. Adam Scott and Craig Robinson have great chemistry and comedic timing, which makes this show a lot of fun. There is also a bit of an 80s throwback vibe to the show, especially in the soundtrack and score. The end of tonight’s premiere definitely leaves you wanting to see more, and I look forward to seeing what strange cases and misadventures these two get involved in in future episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a key member of a top-secret government agency goes missing, so cynical former detective Leroy and genius “true believer” Max are recruited to find him. The two polar opposites must work together to find the agent, while uncovering possible alien activity and chilling “unexplained” paranormal events in their own city of Los Angeles.

See if this new comedy’s for you tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I can’t believe they went there on NCIS: LA last week! After Sam’s wife, Michelle, was kidnapped by Tahir Khalid’s guys, I thought for sure the team would find her before time ran out. Unfortunately, though they were at the right place earlier in the day, they didn’t KNOW it, and by the time they figured it out and Deeks and Kensi rushed in, killing all the bad guys in the building, Michelle was already dead from running out of oxygen in the small freezer she’d been kept in. It was absolutely heartbreaking to watch Sam get there slowly walk in to uncover his wife’s body and see her for himself. Until that moment, I wasn’t sure if she were alive or dead, and I nearly cried, knowing how much he had to be hurting.

One other thing that was interesting about the episode… Sabatino was back – and he got Sidorov out of prison to allow the team to try to get some real answers about Michelle’s kidnapping. Sabatino told them it should prove that he wasn’t involved in trying to bring the team down before. Can we trust him on that? I have no idea…

So what will happen on tonight’s season finale? Will Sam get his revenge against Khalid? Even if he does, will he destroy his life and his future to get it, leaving his kids without both of their parents? What about the rest of the team? Will Deeks FINALLY propose to Kensi, in the wake of Sam’s devastating loss? Will we get a definitive answer about Sabatino? And will the show set up any story lines for next season?

On tonight’s episode, “Unleashed,” following the kidnapping of Sam’s wife, Michelle Hanna, Sam goes rogue from the NCIS team and attempts to stop his arch nemesis Tahir Khaled (guest star Anslem Richardson) from ever targeting his family again. Erik Palladino also guest stars.

To see how it works out for Sam and the team, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, Chicago Justice, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Match Game, & Iron Chef Eats.

Tonight, the third season of The Last Man on Earth comes to a close on FOX with a special 1-hour finale. Last week, the show took a sudden and unexpected leap forward in time, and Tandy comically and casually mentioned all of the “boring” stuff viewers missed during those 6 months. Melissa was now sane again and ready to walk down the aisle with Todd. Meanwhile, Jasper was talking up a storm, Erica and Gail were a couple, and Erica’s and Carol’s pregnancies had advanced tremendously. And the episode ended with Erica’s water breaking.

Will these untrained survivors be able to deliver the baby successfully, or will Erica face the same fate as her baby’s father? Will Carol also give birth before the end of tonight’s finale? And will we finally see the return of Kristen Wiig’s character? (I really hope so. She’s so hilarious!) The series creators already warned that this season finale was not written as a series finale, so we’ll likely be left with yet another twist/cliffhanger, so I really hope we hear of some good renewal news from FOX soon!

On tonight’s season finale, “When the Going Gets Tough; Nature’s Horchata,” the long-term consequences of surviving an apocalyptic event start to have a major impact on the group as their daily lives are turned upside down.

See how the season (series?) ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Making History, Into the Badlands, The Leftovers, Silicon Valley, Veep, and American Gods.

Last week’s NCIS: LA found the team (mostly Sam & Callen) working with Hetty’s friends/former colleagues Retired Admiral AJ Chegwidden and Admiral Sterling Bridges while tracking a fourth friend/former colleague, Retired Captain Charles Langston. Langston pretended to be a homeless man asking for money on the street in stalled traffic, and all seemed calm until he got to a car and freaked out, smashing in the window and then getting into the car and holding the former driver/now passenger hostage. The victim ended up being a guy in charge at the veteran’s hospital who treated the veterans like dirt and didn’t do what he should have been doing for support. Langston didn’t kill him, just left him tied up for Kensi and Deeks to eventually find. Then he went to the VA hospital and donated all the money he’d gathered and had stockpiled, ranting about how all the people needed to be seen. In the end, it turned out the REAL bad guys they all ended up chasing had stolen a bunch of gold bars Hetty and the men had been set to use to pay off a ransom, but then it wasn’t needed. So it’s been sitting in a secure safe ever since…until the bad guys figured out where it was and stole it.

We also learned more about Granger, who was another of the colleagues involved in their group. It was nice to see them thinking about him! But my favorite moment had to be in the pawn shop, where Deeks saw a wedding veil and told Kensi she would look beautiful in it. She froze and then teared up a bit, and when pressed, she admitted that since her father wasn’t alive, she’d planned to ask Granger to walk her down the aisle. It was a very, very touching moment – and I’d love to see them go back to that moment when Kensi and Deeks get married.

We’re coming up to the final eps of the season. This current story line wraps tonight in time for the last two episodes, which will focus on Sam, his wife, and Tahir Kalid. How the rest of the team will play into the Sam-focused story line, I have no idea, but I’m sure they will. Will Deeks be haunted once again by Internal Affairs at the LAPD? Will we get a Deeks/Kensi proposal? What about Callen? Will we see Anna again? Maybe we’ll get some answers to some of those tonight…

On tonight’s episode, “Golden Days,” a gold heist investigation has the NCIS team working with Hetty’s former Vietnam War colleagues, Retired Admiral AJ Chegwidden (John M. Jackson), Admiral Sterling Bridges (James Remar), and Retired Captain Charles Langston (Carl Lumbly).

See if the team can help recover the stolen gold tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, Chicago Justice, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Match Game, & Iron Chef Eats.

Also of note… We will not be posting the Remote regularly this week. I have a family funeral to attend midweek, so I’ll be gone Tuesday-Thursday. I may schedule a few to post throughout the week, but it won’t be anything consistent. That being said, here’s my pick for tonight!

I’m excited for the rest of the season on NCIS: LA, since it seems like there’s some good stuff coming. Last week was an exciting one, especially for Sam and Callen, who were trapped on a plane with the bad guys. Let me tell you… If I’m on a plane and bullets start flying, I’m gonna bend over and kiss my butt good-bye, ’cause that’s a deadly combination! Thankfully it all worked out for our boys. Of course, I never doubted that it would! And we had some cute Deeks/Kensi stuff, where she wanted to spend the weekend away, but he told her no. She kept at him until he broke down and told her that her friends were all coming into town to celebrate her being completely better. Now, what they were told about why she was down and out, I have no idea, since they don’t know she’s NCIS!

Tonight’s episode looks like a fun one. Daniela Ruah (Kensi) apparently won Dancing with the Stars in Portugal, and since Kensi has to go undercover at a Cuban club tonight, I know we should see some awesome moves. It was all her, not a stunt/dance double, so…yay! Go, Daniela!

On tonight’s episode, “From Havana with Love,” the NCIS team investigates a defense contractor, Rebecca Larmont (Shanna Collins), designing a nuclear attack weapon after her estranged husband, Victor Larmont (Lou Ferrigno Jr.), says he has proof she is selling Navy secrets to a foreign government. Also, Kensi goes undercover as a professional dancer at the Cuban club where the husband works, while Deeks is undercover as the bathroom attendant.

To see how Kensi does dancing the night away, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Little Big Shots, Chicago Justice, Match Game, & Spring Baking Championship.
