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.

Tonight, after being off the air for over 11 years, Will & Grace returns to NBC to kick off the show’s ninth season. I was a big fan of the series when it originally aired and thought they actually did a great job of wrapping the series up in the finale. However, within the opening moments of tonight’s season premiere, the characters have a fun time quickly and concisely letting viewers know which things from the series finale are no longer canon. After that, the show doesn’t feel like it has missed a beat in the decade it was off the air. Will (Erick McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) are still lonely roommates, Jack (Sean Hayes) still makes his fun entrances and inappropriate comments, and Karen (Megan Mullally) is still drunk, wealthy, and “working” as Grace’s assistant.

I checked out the first three episodes of the season, and the writers have done an excellent job at making this reboot feel not only the same as the original show but have also brought it into the modern day, tackling many issues prevalent in today’s political climate. The cast hasn’t lost any of their chemistry, and the jokes and double-entendres flow rapidly. Fans of the original series will certainly be pleased to welcome this show back into their lives!

On tonight’s premiere, “11 Years Later,” Will and Grace both falter when their political beliefs are put to the test; and Jack and Karen help them hide their secret shame from each other, but the truth finally comes out.

Welcome the show back tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

On tonight’s Superstore season finale, there’s a storm brewing, both literally and figuratively. Last week it was Cheyenne’s wedding, and things got uncomfortable pretty quickly. Amy brought her husband with her – they were in the process of trying to fix their marriage, but it was easy to see that that wasn’t really going well. When someone referred to Jonah as Amy’s “work husband,” it immediately put him on the defensive, making things really awkward for his date, Kristen. She ultimately broke up with Jonah after he asked her to move in with him as a way to change the subject of conversation. And after much drinking, Jonah let it slip that he finds Amy sexy. Meanwhile, Sandra’s crush Jerry came to the reception as Carol’s date, but he ditched her to spend time with Sandra after she revealed that she didn’t really have a boyfriend. And Glenn was still struggling with the idea of having to fire people, so he invited Jeff to the reception in hopes that he would see some of the poorer staff members and reverse his decision. However, when Mateo saw Jeff, his mind started racing and old feelings started coming back. Soon there was a bit of chaos, and Glenn blurted out the fact that he was going to have to lay off some staff.

How will the Cloud 9-ers react to the news that some of them will be losing their jobs? Will Glenn find a way to avoid this, and if not, who will he let go? Will Amy and Jonah finally get together? So many questions, but I’m also hoping that tonight’s tornado storyline blows us away. This reminds me of the sitcoms of the 80s and 90s, where every show always had at least one episode that revolved around some major storm approaching – there was even one network that weaved the same hurricane through its entire comedy block. I’m looking forward to being swept up by tonight’s finale.

On tonight’s season finale, “Tornado,” Glenn tries to figure out which employees to lay off; Jonah copes with the fallout of an admission he made to Amy; Garrett and Dina spar; and Mateo creates an alliance to keep his job. Also: a tornado warning goes into effect and forces the staff into uncomfortable pairings.

To see how the tornado affects the store and staff, tune in to NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior, and Riverdale.
