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.

I’m so glad that Chicago Med is back tonight. I hate that we had to wait until late November to get it, especially after the way last season ended! Dr. Charles was preoccupied with his daughter Robin’s health, both mental and physical, after she had what they thought was a psychotic break but really turned out to be a brain tumor. So that was good, at least, since it meant she would be cured after surgery. But because he was preoccupied, he didn’t go down and check on the former patient who ranted and raved in the ER waiting room all day, and when Dr. Charles left the hospital late that night, the man confronted him…and shot him! Eek!

Of course, that wasn’t the only story line shocker of the finale. The gang was together celebrating the fact that Noah got placed there at Chicago Med, and during the party, Ethan (Dr. Choi) & April finally kissed after they’d been dancing around one another for weeks. Not only that, but Will & Natalie (Drs. Halstead & Manning) danced and looked like they were getting closer – thank goodness, because Will FINALLY broke up with Nina, which meant both of them were single. Now, how the show will handle both potential couples, we’ll have to see!

Did the gunshot kill Dr. Charles? How is Robin doing after her diagnosis, and how did it affect her relationship with Connor (Dr. Rhodes)? Will either of the pairings from the finale be together now? How much time has passed since that night? I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and it answers (or at least starts to answer) some of those questions. It’s an exciting episode, so buckle up, because I have a feeling it’s going to be a great season!

On tonight’s episode, “Speak Your Truth,” the doctors of Chicago Med take their opinions to the extreme as they try to bring justice to the perpetrator in the shooting of Dr. Charles. Dr. Halstead and Dr. Manning work on a heart-wrenching case that forces them to examine their own matters of the heart. Though Robin’s brain tumor was removed and she is discharged from the rehabilitation center, Dr. Rhodes remains on edge that her problems are not quite resolved. Meanwhile, Rhodes gets blindsided by his colleague Dr. Bekker, Maggie sticks up for a patient, and Dr. Choi and April try to navigate their new working relationship.

Catch up with the hospital gang in Chicago tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, Dancing with the Stars, The Little Couple, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Early today, Hulu released all 13 episodes of the first season of the new sci-fi comedy Future Man. Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games) still lives at home with his parents, Gabe (Ed Begley Jr., St. Elsewhere) & Diana (Glenne Headly, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels). He works a dead-end job as a janitor at Kronish Laboratories, a sexual-disease research facility. He is obsessed with an unwinnable video game called Biotic Wars – it seems that no matter what he tries, he cannot complete the final level. However, one day he changes up his strategy and manages to win the game. Soon afterwards, he is visited by two characters from the game, Resistance leader Tiger (Eliza Coupe, Happy Endings) and foot soldier Wolf (Derek Wilson, Preacher, Rectify). They have traveled back in time from a bleak future, and Josh is the only person who can help fix things – the video game was a recruitment tool/test to help them find their Savior. After Josh gets over his initial disbelief, he soon discovers that these visitors are a quite crude, violent, and don’t understand proper human behavior. At the same time, Tiger and Wolf are disappointed to learn that Josh is not quite the fierce warrior they expected him to be. This trio must learn to work together to prevent the series of events that led up to the downfall of the planet.

The series comes from executive producers/directors Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Preacher). I recently binged the first seven episodes, and I would have watched the entire season had it been made available. Each episode blends right into the next, making the season feel like one long, epic movie. This show is hilarious, and I found myself constantly laughing out loud. It’s got physical humor, witty dialogue, and fun movie/pop-culture references strewn throughout. At the same time, it’s an action-packed sci-fi series. I also really enjoyed the fish-out-of-water aspect of Tiger and Wolf clashing/trying to fit in with modern culture and morals. It is so great seeing Eliza Coupe back on my TV in a comedy – Tiger is easily my favorite character on this series!

While the show may sound like a family friendly sci-fi action/comedy, there is a lot of adult language and situations, so parents may wish to check it out first before allowing younger viewers to watch.

Check out the entire first season now on Hulu!

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, This Is Us, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, American Horror Story: Cult, and Damnation.
