The Conners has pretty seamlessly picked up where Roseanne left off, minus the titular character. It feels a lot like the same show, with the more prominent focus on the other characters. Like last week, a lot of the focus was on Darlene, her soon-to-be ex-husband David, his girlfriend Blue, and David & Darlene’s daughter Harris. (Mark was mentioned but wasn’t really featured much.) Not only was David late to a parent-teacher conference about Mark, but he brought his slightly strange girlfriend Blue. Surprise, Darlene! Yeah, perfect place to meet your husband’s girlfriend… That’s when Darlene found out David & Blue planned to have the kids stay the night with them, much to Darlene’s (again) surprise. Darlene agreed, but she quickly regretted that decision when David came over the next morning to say that Harris had had a boy over and they’d had sex. And (again) surprise, David was working and not at home when it happened, but Blue talked about it beforehand with Harris and gave her permission to have the boy over. Darlene was livid and went OFF on Blue. I was cheering for her. Blue SO stepped over the line on that one. Darlene told David he could have the kids over again but ONLY if he were there the whole time. Blue was not to be left alone with either of the kids again. David agreed. But she also brought up the fact that now that things seem to be serious for him and Blue, it’s time the two of them sign divorce papers. Boo. Hiss. I know he’s busy on The Big Bang Theory, but come on! *sigh* Anyway, Darlene had a talk with Harris on the way home and told Harris she could tell her anything. Harris said she knew that and said the boy hadn’t texted her back yet and asked her mom if they could stop and get the morning-after pill. It was a sweet conversation on a touchy subject.

The other major story line was Becky and Dan. Dan told D.J. that he was really busy on the job site and asked if D.J. wanted to work with him to earn some extra money. D.J. said he was too busy with his job as a vending machine repairman. Becky overheard and said she needed the extra money because she wanted to buy a new trailer. Dan was hesitant but finally agreed. Unfortunately, Becky showed up with a water bottle filled with…vodka, and Dan figured it out right away after watching her take a swig. He called her out on it, said if she got herself or someone else hurt on the job because she’d been drinking, he’d lose his company. She came to him later and admitted she had a drinking problem (and there’s a big DUH from the audience), that what started out as drinking to get through work had now become drinking all day. They agreed on her working part-time, and he gave her six weeks to get sober and stay sober or he’d have to fire her. It was a great moment between the two of them, seeing her admitting the problem she had and him being supportive but tough.

On tonight’s episode, “There Won’t Be Blood,” it’s Halloween, the favorite time of year for the Conners, but an email from the school banning certain costumes, including Mark’s, sets off an argument between Dan and Darlene. Jackie introduces someone new to the family at the Halloween party and insists that Dan vet him, only to immediately wish that she hadn’t. John Billingsley (Intelligence, True Blood, Star Trek: Enterprise) & David Paymer (I’m Dying Up Here, The Good Wife) guest star.

See how the Conners handle their first Halloween without Roseanne tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, Lethal Weapon, The Little Couple, NCIS: New Orleans, The Rookie, & The Guest Book.

I’m so happy because it seems like forever ago that we last saw Jen, Bill, Will, & Zoey on The Little Couple. When we left them, the family had visited friends in Vermont and had some fun in the snow, but the big question was their job and living situation… Jen got offered a huge job opportunity in St. Petersburg, Florida, heading up a new simulation division, which is what she’s been doing at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, but this would put her in charge of it at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. In the end, they decided that even though Bill was just getting ready to open a new, bigger store for his business, the positives outweighed the negatives, and they decided to head to Florida. It should be fun to catch up with them and see how the move goes (well, by this time, how the move went!).

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Why Do We Have to Move?” after accepting a job in St. Petersburg, Jen, Bill, and the kids travel to Florida to find a perfect new home, but with specific needs and two curious kids, house hunting isn’t easy; the family grabs a sweet treat to celebrate Jen’s birthday.

Go house hunting with the family tonight on TLC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Chopped, FBI, Lethal Weapon, NCIS: New Orleans, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.

Tonight, after 7 seasons, the FOX comedy New Girl finally comes to an end. Last week, Winston was anxious about becoming a father, so Jess tracked down his long-lost dad. However, after Winston bonded with this stranger, it turned out that Jess had found the wrong person. Meanwhile, Schmidt tried to go back to work, but being away from Ruth was not easy, and Cece realized just how much of a help Schmidt was at home. And Nick had his proposal all set, but his plans got messed up when he and Jess got a new dog. However, in the end, Nick realized that the situation was never going to be perfect and just went for it, proposing to Jess during an outdoor showing of an 80s rom-com in the park.

The series comes to a close with a really satisfying 1-hour finale. The first half of the finale gives us the wedding that’s been seven seasons in the making, but of course, things don’t quite go as planned, and madness and hilarity ensues. And in the final episode, the series takes a fun trip down memory lane, making lots of callbacks that longtime viewers will really appreciate. Many familiar faces also pop up for cameos during tonight’s two episodes. While I initially thought last year’s season finale did a decent job of wrapping up the show, I’m really happy that we got these extra eight episodes to give the series a proper ending. Tonight’s finale is a gift to the longtime fans, giving a fun and satisfying conclusion to the series as well as a glimpse into what lies ahead for Jess and her former loft-mates.

On tonight’s episode, “The Curse of the Pirate Bride; Engram Pattersky,” Jess and Nick make life-changing decisions; Winston and Aly’s big day arrives; the gang takes a trip down memory lane.

Find out how the series ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, Rise, MasterChef: Junior, The Flash, The 100, Legion, and Chrisley Knows Best.

On last week’s episode of The Flash, Barry discovered that Big Sir had been framed and found some forensic evidence that would have cleared him. Barry asked Joe to work on Big Sir’s case, but the gang was busy trying to take down a Meta who was wreaking havoc in Central City with his ability to shrink things. However, it turned out that Barry’s suspect and the new Meta were one in the same, and during the confrontation, the Meta managed to shrink Ralph and Cisco. Meanwhile, Cecile discovered that her pregnancy had given her temporary telepathic powers — the ability to hear other people’s thoughts — which made Joe a bit uneasy, but she was able to help with the case. In the end, the group managed to catch the Meta, but he refused to confess to the crime Big Sir had been framed for. So Barry took matters into his own hands, speeding Big Sir out of the country, to freedom. However, when Barry returned to his cell, he learned that the warden had installed an extra security camera and now had visual proof that Barry was The Flash. The warden drugged Barry, took him to a secret location, and called Amunet to let her know he had a new metahuman for her.

Why does Amunet want Barry? What other metahumans does she have in her possession, and what does she plan to do with them? Will the gang discover what has happened to Barry, and can they save him? And even if Barry does escape, how will he clear his name and prevent the warden from revealing the truth about The Flash?

On tonight’s episode, “True Colors,” after hearing that Amunet has struck a deal to buy all of the metahumans in Iron Heights, Barry must decide if he should expose his powers in order to save his cellmates. After a visit from an old friend, Ralph is reminded of his shady past and wonders if he’s really a changed man.

See what Berry decides tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, LA to Vegas, The Mick, Black Lightning, and The Detour.

I really enjoyed the last episode of NCIS: New Orleans. A group of street kids were pulling cons and stealing from tourists. But they stole a bag from petty officer who then followed them, only to be stopped by the “leader” of the street kids, the oldest of the bunch, who had a gun. Fortunately the kids didn’t kill him, but the bad guys (who were after diamonds they’d hidden in the petty officer’s camera) who did also killed a couple of the street kids, which was really sad. Percy & Gregorio got close to two of the kids, taking them home with them for the night so they didn’t have to send them into the system. And poor Pride is trying so hard to play by the rules, but then something crops up (like trying to help the kids), where he feels it best to go off-book, and it gets him into trouble, even though things work out for the best. He just can’t seem to win!

On tonight’s episode, “Mirror Mirror,” after Rita Deveraux tells Pride that Hamilton is about to make a deal to get out of prison, Pride and the team rehash the Clearwater case in hopes of locating his mystery partner and spoiling his bargaining chip. Chelsea Field, Steven Weber, & Stacy Keach guest star.

See if Pride can once again take down Hamilton tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Major Crimes, Chicago Med, & Chopped.
