Tonight, the NBC comedy A.P. Bio returns for its second season. Last season, we were introduced to disgraced former Harvard Philosophy professor Jack Griffin, who had reluctantly moved back home to Toledo, Ohio, and taken over as the Advanced Placement Biology teacher at Whitlock High School. However, Jack doesn’t actually do any teaching – he told his students that he will give them all A’s as long as they don’t report him. Instead, Jack is constantly putting his students to work to help carry out his own personal schemes, such as plotting ways to get revenge on the rival who stole his tenure. As the first season progressed, Jack’s projects also branched out into schemes involving some of his students’ personal lives. And while Jack continued to put on this rough, selfish exterior, it was clear that he was warming up to the students and actually cared about someone other than himself. The series also follows the misadventures of the rest of the school’s inept staff, including Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt), secretary Helen (Paula Pell), and the rest of the staff.

The new season starts off with things pretty much the same, picking up in the same school year with Jack “teaching” the same class of students. Jack is once again enlisting his pupils to aid in his latest scheme that will hopefully allow him to quickly achieve financial and professional success and get out of Toledo and back to the real world. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of other craziness ensuing in the main office and in teacher’s lounge.

On tonight’s premiere, “Happiness,” Jack tries to unlock the secret of what makes ordinary people happy, leading him to a new book idea that he believes will be his ticket out of Whitlock High and Toledo; Mary, Stef and Michelle celebrate a special day.

See what Jack comes up with for his book idea tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

Tonight, Superstore reopens its doors for its fourth season on NBC. When we left off last year, Myrtle was being fired. Everyone banded together to try to save her job, but they were ultimately unsuccessful. Meanwhile, Dina was pregnant as a surrogate for manager Glenn, and Amy discovered she, too, was pregnant by her ex-husband. However, that didn’t stop the show from finally answering the big “Will They or Won’t They” question that fans have been wondering about since the beginning of the series. Amy and Jonah had sex in the storage room – what they didn’t realize until afterwards was that their sexcapades were being live-streamed to all of the Cloud 9 locations.

Tonight’s season premiere picks up 4 months later, as Amy and Jonah return to their jobs at Cloud 9. Lucky for us, their punishment isn’t at all realistic – in real life, there is no way they would be allowed to return to their jobs after what happened, or at the very least Amy would have been demoted! But now that they are back, is it really business as usual? How will their co-workers treat them now that they’ve seen Amy and Jonah bare all? And what is the status of their relationship – was it just a one-time thing, or are Amy and Jonah still a couple? The Cloud 9 crew always provide lots of laughs, and I’m excited to have them returning to my TV!

On tonight’s episode, “Back to School,” Amy and Jonah return from a four-month suspension just in time for the back-to-school sale madness, but they receive different treatment from their co-workers; Jeff makes a misguided attempt to woo back Mateo.

Catch up with the gang at Cloud 9 tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, The Good Place, Will & Grace, and I Feel Bad.

Tonight is the series premiere of Station 19, and I am very intrigued by this show. It’s centered around Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz, Rosewood), who is the daughter of the head of her Seattle firehouse. Andy is extremely by the books and a fierce woman. We will also see the station’s newest member, Ben Warren (Jason George), who fans of Grey’s Anatomy will recognize as Bailey’s husband Ben, who has left the medical world to be a firefighter. The show also stars Miguel Sandoval (Medium), Grey Damon (Aquarius, Star-Crossed, The Nine Lives of Chloe King), Jay Hayden (The Catch, SEAL Team, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Alberto Frezza (Dead of Summer), Danielle Savre (Too Close to Home, Supernatural: Bloodlines), Okieriete Onaodowan, & Barrett Doss.

I’m interested to see how this show progresses, as it is a new member of the Shondra Rhimes universe — a very lucrative universe to belong to. Time will tell if people take to it as quickly as they did Grey’s.

On tonight’s 2-episode premiere, “Stuck/Invisible to Me,” when the team responds to an apartment fire, Captain Pruitt takes a hit, the future of the station’s leadership is in jeopardy, and firefighter Andy Herrera is forced to step up. Meanwhile, new recruit Ben Warren is trading in the scalpel for a fresh start as a firefighter, but it hasn’t been easy and he has a hard time realizing that emergencies in the field are vastly different than those at Grey Sloan Memorial. With the absence of Captain Pruitt, Andy and Jack try to navigate how to work together, and a car accident on a rural road puts both the victims and the crew’s lives at risk.

To check out this new drama, tune in to ABC at 9/8c, followed by the second new episode at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, A.P. Bio, and Chicago Fire.

Tonight, Superstore kicks off a fun 2-hour comedy block on NBC. On last week’s episode, the Cloud 9 employees became obsessed with Kelly’s viral video, but Amy couldn’t understand why. However, once she discovered that Kelly and Jonah were dating, she set out to make her own video and prove she was just as likable as Kelly. While she ultimately did manage to create a viral video, it was only because of what was accidentally revealed in the background: a rat infestation in the kitchen. Meanwhile, Mateo learned that there was a referral bonus for signing up new customers for a Cloud 9 card and started to create fake accounts. Glenn caught on and confronted Mateo, but he kept denying it, digging the hole deeper and deeper as he desperately tried to prove one of his fake customers was real. Ultimately, Mateo confessed and agreed to let Glenn baptize him. Finally, Dina enlisted Cheyenne to help her dig into the other employees’ social media accounts, looking for inappropriate material.

This show always finds fun new ways to use this talented ensemble cast by pairing up different characters and exploring different dynamics each week. I always have a great time and laugh out loud while watching this show! That said, while Jonah and Kelly make a pretty fun couple, I’m starting to tire of the will they or won’t they between Jonah and Amy. Now that her divorce is complete, it’s time to get those two together!

On tonight’s episode, “Golden Globes Party,” when Amy throws a party to prove how great she’s doing post-divorce, she’s forced to enlist Dina and Jonah’s help, and Dina ends up making the ultimate sacrifice. Meanwhile, Glenn and his wife Jerusha are forced to conduct some personal business at Amy’s home.

To see what sacrifice Dina makes, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, The Good Place, and Will & Grace.

On last week’s episode of Superstore, there was an overriding theme of learning to stand up for oneself. The store was being robbed, and Jonah just stood there – and even moved out of the way so the robber could leave – but Dina jumped on the would-be-thief to thwart the robbery. Store manager Jeff commended Jonah for his lack of action because it was the official course of action that leaves Cloud 9 with the least liability. But Dina felt like she should have been recognized for her heroic deed and started to make fun of Jonah for his wimpy lack of action. Meanwhile, Glenn also had a tough time rising to a challenge – every time he tried to fire the store’s inept security guard, the employee just ended up in some other position. And finally, Amy was upset that the other employees weren’t inviting her to join them in trivia night. Once she finally got up the courage to say something, she ended up regretting it – the reasons they assumed she wouldn’t want to join them were exactly dead on.

This show has such a hilarious ensemble cast, and it’s one of the shows I really look forward to each week. One thing I especially enjoy about this time of year is that it is when most of the TV sitcoms kick off a trio of holiday-themed episodes. Tonight, it’s Halloween at Cloud 9, and I can’t wait to see what these zany employees get up to.

On tonight’s episode, “Sal’s Dead,” a dead body is discovered in the store on Halloween, throwing Glenn and Dina into a panic and confusing the shoppers. Meanwhile, Amy and Garrett get into big trouble using a dating app on Jonah’s phone.

Check out tonight’s fun, spooky Halloween episode on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Place, Will & Grace, Gotham, The Orville, Nathan for You, Van Helsing, and Ghost Wars.
