Tonight, FOX kicks off the fourth season of the gritty Batman drama Gotham. As the third season came to a close, there was a bit of a power struggle, with Barbara, Penguin, and even a resurrected Fish Mooney, all looking to gain control of the city. The Tetch virus was running through the city, and whichever one of them located Strange’s antidote first would control Gotham. Jim Gordon had become infected with the virus, so he, too, was after the cure to save himself and Lee. With Harvey’s help, he managed to procure two vials of the antidote, but Lee was less than thrilled to receive the cure — she had been enjoying the sense of power the virus had given her. Meanwhile, Bruce was off on his own journey of self-discovery, being brainwashed by Ra’s al Ghul. And Penguin was a bit distracted by his rivalry with Ed Nygma, which ended with Mr. Freeze putting The Riddler on ice. Penguin placed his frozen rival in his tavern as a centerpiece as he debated the most advantageous way to make use of a thawed Nygma.

The first half of fourth season is subtitled “A Dark Knight.” That means we’ll finally be seeing Bruce don a costume and heading out into the streets of Gotham to dole out vigilante justice. It looks like we’re in for another exciting season with the introduction of some more familiar villains, such as Scarecrow. I’m looking forward to seeing how the season plays out as Bruce finally becomes the masked hero we’ve been waiting for!

On tonight’s fourth season premiere, “Pax Penuina,” Gordon fears Jonathan Crane is still alive and back in Gotham when the Scarecrow’s signature MO is used in a series of robberies. Meanwhile, Penguin’s “licensing” of crime in the city backfires during the grand opening of his new Iceberg Lounge; and, in the aftermath of his encounter with Ra’s Al Ghul, Bruce begins his vigilante watch.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Orville, Flipping Out, Nathan for You, and The Guest Book.

I’ve been excited about tonight’s premiere of The Guest Book since I first heard about it. It comes from Greg Garcia, who also created & executive produced Raising Hope & My Name is Earl, both of which I adored. The premise of this show came from Garcia’s habit of writing fictional stories in the guest books of various rental cabins in order to freak out the next renters. Now these stories are coming to TBS. It’s a bit different than a normal comedy. While the house and characters living in the small mountain town remain the same, each episode will feature a different set of vacationing guests, along with a different story. So much fun and will allow for some fantastic guest stars!

The regular and recurring cast members include Kellie Martin (Army Wives) as Officer Kimberly Leahy, Charlie Robinson (Hart of Dixie) as Wilfrid, Aloma Wright (Suits) as Emma, Carly Jibson (Broadway’s Hairspray) as Vivian, and Frank, played by Lou Wilson (Tween Fest). Rounding out the first season cast is Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope) as Andrew, Laura Bell Bundy (Scream Queens) as Jessica, and Eddie Steeples (My Name is Earl) as Eddie.

On tonight’s first episode, “Story One,” months after having a kid, Tim, a middle-school science teacher, books the cabin to spice up his sex life with his wife Sandy, but when things take an unexpected turn, Tim finds himself way over his head in a criminal conspiracy.

Then on the second episode, “Story Two,” devout mother Jill is annoyed that her son Ethan has brought his atheist fiancée Lynn to the cabin for a family getaway.

Don’t miss the hilarious double-episode premiere tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Love Connection, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Beat Bobby Flay, & Incredible Jokers.

Tonight, TBS’s island survival comedy Wrecked returns for its second season with two back-to-back episodes. In the first season, a plane crash-landed on a deserted island, leaving a group of strangers to band together in order to survive. However, this bond between the group quickly started to devolve. As the season came to a close, a ship was approaching the island, and everyone was excited that they were going to be saved, but Steve didn’t want to leave. He pulled out a gun and killed Kurt and afterwards took Danny hostage. Owen and Danny managed to overtake Steve and threw him and his supporters into the pit. Afterwards, the boat arrived on shore, but the survivors soon discovered that the men were actually pirates and they were here to kidnap Danny…who is the son of a billionaire!

Tonight we finally get a continuation to that cliffhanger! How is the group going to react to the news that Danny is actually the son of a billionaire? How did the pirates find him, and how do they plan to claim their ransom? What will the pirates do to the rest of the survivors? And will this development cause the group to let Steve and his crew out of the pit?

I really enjoyed the first season of Wrecked. It’s like a wacky, fun version of Lost, with a great blend of parody, pop-culture references, sight gags, and just witty dialogue and fun characters. I checked out tonight’s first episode, and I’m really happy we get two tonight, because that first half just flew by way too quickly. I am really looking forward to the rest of the season!

On tonight’s first episode, “Ransom,” the newly arrived pirates try to ransom Danny while marooning the others; Steve tries to make amends for murdering a survivor. Then, in “Poison,” Pack tries to negotiate a truce with the pirates; Steve pitches Danny on a new business venture.

Catch the two-episode season premiere tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording iZombie, The Bold Type, and Animal Kingdom.

Tonight, the second season of black-ish comes to an end. Last week Dre had an emotional time dropping Zoey off at college for her two-day pre-college orientation, and what followed was a backdoor pilot for a fun potential spin-off series. Minutes after she arrived, Zoey met and befriended Miriam, the only other seemingly sane person there. She also discovered that Charlie was moonlighting as an adjunct marketing professor at the college. As she and Miriam explored the campus, Zoey met and fell in love with Aaron, a Black Student Union representative who was fighting to protect the all-black dorm from being shut down by the school’s administrators. Zoey learned that due to Dre’s obsession with the McRib, she did not have any housing for the upcoming semester, but her speech to the administrators about keeping the segregated dorms earned her the position of cultural liaison to the administer’s office, which came with housing.

I really enjoyed last week’s backdoor pilot, and I would totally watch that series. It will be interesting to see if ABC announces it as part of their new lineup at next week’s Upfronts. The potential series has a similar feeling to the original, with Zoey doing the narration like Dre does, and her position at the school is not unlike her father’s role at his work. Tonight we return to the rest of the family for the show’s season finale. What adventures await the Johnsons, and is tonight the night the latest addition to the family arrives?

On tonight’s finale, “Sprinkles,” Dre throws Bow’s baby shower and wants it to be unforgettable, but his plans are put on hold when Bow stops by the OB/GYN with a headache and discovers she is having complications.

See if everything works out okay for Bow and the baby tonight on ABC at 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Fargo, and Archer.

Last week something very exciting happened for loyal fans of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls: Candy Andy and Bobby came face-to-face! Whew. That was a lot of hotness in one screen! It was the press junket for Caroline’s movie, and Max and Caroline were invited, along with Andy, who was also featured in the movie. The movie itself got a bit of a change-up from Caroline’s real life. She did indeed lose her money, then meet Max. But she and Candy Andy fell in love instead of breaking up like in real life. The actress playing Caroline was Australian. The Han character was played by a 12-year-old girl. The Oleg character was…well, very Oleg-like. And instead of having a Sophie AND an Earl, they combined them to make it a full-figured black woman playing a Polish woman. Bizarre! LOL A now-divorced Andy told Caroline he missed her and wanted to get back together, but Bobby, who’d told Caroline earlier in the episode that he wasn’t jealous, burst in and hit Andy – well, hit the actor playing Andy – who was kissing Caroline – well, the actress playing Caroline. Turns out he really was jealous. Of course, both Caroline and Bobby were wistful when Andy later on mentioned that he was now rich after an accident at Six Flags. He had a helicopter and everything. And Max finally got to meet the actress who was playing her – a young woman who went very method when preparing for the roll. Maybe a little too method, since she asked Max, “How are you still alive??”

Tonight is the season finale. It hasn’t been renewed yet, and TV Line has it listed as “Could go either way.” So I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Will we get a satisfying conclusion in case this is the end of the series? Caroline and Bobby are happy. Oleg and Sophie are married with a baby. But Max needs to find love… I want her to get back together with Randy! Since he’s listed as being back for the finale, maybe that’ll happen? Guess we’ll have to watch to find out!

On tonight’s episode, “And 2 Broke Girls: The Movie,” as the big premiere of the film about Caroline’s life arrives, the girls and the diner gang prepare for their night on the red carpet. Also, Caroline and Max contemplate their future at the diner and the states of their love lives. Celebrity fashion stylist Brad Goreski guest stars as himself, who helps the girls choose dresses for the big premiere. Ed Quinn also guest stars as Randy.

See how the season (series?) ends tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, APB, Help My Yelp, Scorpion, & Taken.
