On last week’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jake was happy to be out of jail and back at work, but he was tired of being assigned to desk duty. However, in order to get back in the field and work on a real case, he needed to pass an evaluation, and the person giving that evaluation was Captain Holt. Even though Jake bungled the robbery case he was working on, Captain Holt was pleased by his new outlook on work and putting the case first and cleared Peralta for active duty. But Jake decided he needed some more time behind a desk first. Meanwhile, Rosa thought Pimento was cheating on her and recruited Amy and Terry to help investigate. It turned out that he was just taking Spanish lessons in order to impress Rosa’s father. However, she had already decided to call off their relationship, and Pimento didn’t take the news well.

Tonight is the show’s annual Halloween Heist episode, which is usually one of the highlights of each season. The writers always throw in a lot of fun twists and misdirections that keep you guessing as to who is aligned with whom and what is actually going on. I never know who is going to win the contest each year until the final moments when everything is revealed, and then I realize that so much more had been going on that I didn’t even notice…and I want to immediately rewatch the episode again to catch it all!

On tonight’s episode, “HalloVeen,” the Nine-Nine embarks on its fifth annual Halloween Heist and, as usual, everybody has a plan and no one is safe. Relationships and friendships are tested as the title “Amazing Human Slash Genius” must be snagged by midnight, leaving everyone pitted against each other.

See who takes home the title tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

ABC’s Tuesday comedy block is one of my favorites, and tonight new comedy The Mayor joins the lineup. Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall, Search Party) is a struggling 27-year-old rapper from California who decides to enter his local mayoral race in order to get some free promotion for his forthcoming album. However, when he ends up beating the incumbent (David Spade, Rules of Engagement), his mother Dina (Yvette Nicole Brown, Community) urges him to take the job seriously and use his new position to make a difference for his community. Aiding Courtney in this new political endeavor are his best friends Marcel (T.K. Clifton) & Jermaine (Bernard David Jones, Meet the Browns), and Valentina (Lea Michele, Glee, Scream Queens), the former mayor’s campaign manager.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere — this show has that perfect blend of humor and heart that the ABC comedies are known for. It’s just a fun, family friendly comedy. I’ve always enjoyed Yvette Nicole Brown’s work, so I’m happy to see her in yet another sitcom — and the same goes for Lea Michelle. This series looks like it will make a great addition to ABC’s Tuesday comedy lineup.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Courtney runs for mayor as a publicity stunt and unexpectedly wins the election.

Cast your vote tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30c.

Tonight, The Mick returns to FOX to kick off its second season. In the first season, reckless black sheep Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) was forced to care for her niece and two nephews when her wealthy sister went on the lam. What resulted was a hilariously inappropriate Uncle Buck-style comedy that quickly became one of my favorite new comedies of last season. The first season of the series ended with a bang, literally. The Pembertons returned, only to get caught by the police, and in a huge cliffhanger, the mansion went up in flames.

I can’t wait to see where the show goes from here. Without the huge mansion, where are Mickey and the kids going to stay? Do they have any money stashed away, and if not, who is going to take it harder — Mickey or the kids?!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Hotel,” Mickey and the kids are forced to downgrade after their financial advisor cuts them off due to excessive spending; Chip learns tricks from Jimmy on how to live in a luxurious hotel.

Catch tonight’s episode on FOX at 9/8c.

There are so many things on tonight that I want to recommend that I had trouble even narrowing it down to two… So I picked the two that I’m most excited about or knew I’d enjoy the most. First up is the double episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This show always, ALWAYS makes me laugh. Last week, we first got to see the Nine-Nine go to Cop-Con, which was pretty much what it sounded like: Comic-Con for cops, with presentations, gadgets, etc, all geared toward law enforcement. The group has always used the time to party and let off some steam, but this year, Captain Holt asked them to be on their best behavior since he was trying for a position on some board of law enforcement officers. So the team decided they’d still party (even opting to host it themselves when the group who usually threw the big party was arrested! LOL), but they’d do it on the down-low. Unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as planned. Holt’s laptop was stolen by his biggest rival and his presentation messed with – surprise, surprise!

Then on the second episode, Amy was studying for the Sergeant’s exam, but as always, she was obsessing and freaking out…so much so that she was ready to quit. I loved how Jake tracked her down by getting into her shoes, prompted by Rosa. When he finally cornered her on the rooftop from “The Bet,” she admitted that she was worried because their relationship might change. Jake was very sweet and said even if it did, they’d get through it. And there was also some great stuff with Capt. Holt and Terry, basically competing to see who could build the “best” model train set – best being the operative word. Capt. Holt thought the best one was accurate down to the most minute detail, while Terry let his imagination fly. It was pretty funny to see the little boy come in and scoff at both, asking where the video games were. As the mother of a young man who was a little boy not so long ago, I can totally relate!

I’ve seen tonight’s double episode, and I have to say they’re some of my favorites in a while. For one, we meet Capt. Holt’s mother. Yes, you read that right: WE MEET HIS MOTHER, who is basically a slightly older, slightly more feminine version of Capt. Holt himself. LMAO And second, we get more Jake/Rosa stuff, which is always fun. Finally, we see something we’ve never seen before when Scully and Hitchcock are not only at odds but almost knock-down-drag-out fighting. Fun!

On tonight’s double episode, “Your Honor/The Slaughterhouse,” Captain Holt’s mom (guest star L. Scott Caldwell) seeks support from the precinct after her house is robbed. Meanwhile, Terry, Rosa and Boyle remodel the breakroom and Amy teaches Gina how to change her own car tire. Then, Jake and Rosa try to earn the respect of their idol, Lieutenant Melanie Hawkins (guest star Gina Gershon), while Charles, Terry and Gina test different parenting methods to resolve a conflict between Scully and Hitchcock.

Meet Mrs. Holt tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

Tonight, the first season of FOX’s The Mick comes to a close. Last week, Sabrina decided she wanted to get implants, so Mickey asked the doctor to borrow some implants for a test run, in hopes of dissuading her, but the plan backfired, as Sabrina noticed that her enhanced bosom gave her more looks and influence. They headed to a restaurant, where Mickey assumed that Sabrina would pay, but she had left her credit card with the doctor as a deposit. As they tried to dine and dash, one of the implants fell out, and they tried to find a way to get it back. They called Alba for help, but she showed up high on mushrooms and just made things worse. Meanwhile, Jimmy decided to teach Chip and Ben how to be more masculine by taking them to a baseball game. As Chip headed off alone for a relaxing time in the deluxe suite, Jimmy taught Ben how to start a fight. And the guys he got kicked out were waiting for them outside after the game.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this first season of The Mick. The writers have come up with some pretty wacky situations for these characters, and no matter who gets paired up for the story lines, there’s always a lot of fun craziness that ensues. I’m looking forward to tonight’s finale – will they leave us with some kind of cliffhanger involving the parents returning? Or will it just be one final madcap episode before the series returns next season?

On tonight’s episode, “The Intruder,” in the Season 1 finale, the kids nab a pair of intruders trying to break into the mansion. Later, to protect the children, Mickey must deal with a case of mistaken identity.

Find out whose identity is mistaken and who tried to break in tonight on FOX at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Imaginary Mary, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Great News, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Prison Break, The Flash, iZombie, and The Americans.
