Thank goodness the Gabriel Hicks story line on NCIS is over. The best part of the episode had to be the creepy killer (Paul Triff) who used to live in McGee’s apartment. He was back last week, after we learned that he’d been Hicks’s cellmate. He agreed to tell them anything Hicks had told him, but only if he got to spend some time in the apartment. So McGee sent his family away, brought in a cage for Triff to stay in, and cleared the apartment of anything that pointed to McGee having a family. Triff was kind of hysterical, and in the end, he saved McGee’s life when Hicks showed up and tried to shoot him. We nearly saw the end of Fornell when Hicks kidnapped him, but Fornell got himself free in the trunk, crawled up through back seat, and started strangling him from behind until he crashed the car. They fought and Hicks nearly got the best of him, but Gibbs was there and used Fornell’s Taser and zapped him, saving the day. Of course!

On tonight’s episode, “Handle with Care,” Gibbs and the team work to clear the name of retired Marine Sergeant John Ross (Drew Carey, who in real life served in the Marine Reserves for six years) when cyanide is found in one of the hundreds of care packages he sends to active-duty Marines.

See how they clear Ross’s name tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

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.

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.

The Mick has turned out to be one of my favorite new comedies this season. Last week, Chip got caught with a lewd photo on his phone and had to go in front of the school’s honor-board. Sabrina was overseeing the trial and wasn’t going to let her brother get off easy. Chuck refused to give the names of the students who sent the photo…until he realized that the photo he had pleasured himself to was of his sister. After puking several times, he immediately gave up the names. Meanwhile, Mickey had a scared-straight speech with Ben about what happens to “rats,” so when he witnessed a man keying the family’s expensive car, he refused to tell Alba what he knew.

This show is so hilarious. Every week I find myself laughing out loud. The writing also seems to be getting better each week, as the writers find new and clever ways to intersect the various story lines and pair up the characters. I can’t wait to see what crazy, messed-up antics the family gets up to tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Mess,” Mickey dumps the “cool aunt” persona and decides to lay down the law when the kids ignore her attempts at disciplining them.

See how Mickey stands up to the kids tonight on FOX at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Wall, Bones, Imposters, Detroiters, Switched at Birth, Face Off, and Teachers.

Last week’s NCIS dealt with a congresswoman who was receiving threats, including a dead rat left in her car with a note saying she was next. The woman didn’t seem to take them seriously at all, until her assistant was killed. She annoyed me the entire episode. I guess you have to admire her “can do” attitude, but it was “must get elected, no matter the consequences, and that irritated me. I did call who the killer was. Shame on the assistant’s girlfriend! And I was kind of shocked to see Vance and the congresswoman flirting and agreeing to go out on a date. (Again, she annoyed me there. She was way too…take-charge, too…I dunno…something, for me. LOL)

I love holiday episodes on my procedurals, and I have loved all the episodes of NCIS where we see a young Ducky. So combine those two things, and I know I’m going to love tonight’s episode! Plus, Fornell is back, and he’s a riot, especially his interactions with Gibbs.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tie That Binds,” after the NCIS team tracks evidence from the murder of a Navy captain to Ducky’s deceased mother, Ducky looks back and questions a pivotal life choice he made 37 years ago. Also, the team exchanges holiday gifts, and Gibbs spends Christmas dinner with Fornell. Adam Campbell returns as Young Ducky, and Juliette Angelo returns as Emily Fornell.

Find out what choice Ducky questions tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
