Tonight, Supergirl returns to the CW. In the last episode, Supergirl and the DEO captured a second Worldkiller, Purity. As Alex and Kara interrogated her, hoping to get some info on how to defeat Reign, Purity used her sonic scream to escape from her cell and get away. Meanwhile, J’onn, Winn, and Mon-El teamed up to fix the Legion ship. During one of their conversations, Mon-El revealed that he only married Imra in order to unite Titan and Earth, not out of love.

Later, Purity and Reign teamed up to attack the subway, but our heroes managed to fend them off. As the Worldkillers were leaving, they promised that Pestilence would soon join their team and that then they would be unstoppable. After things settled down, Mon-El told Imra the truth about their marriage and that he may still have feelings for Kara. Imra responded with the news that she, too, was hiding something — the true purpose of their mission (though we never get to hear what this is). As the episode ended, Sam’s eyes once again flashed red, this time in front of Lena, who announced afterwards that she knew what was wrong with Sam.

Will the group be able to stop Worldkillers before it’s too late? What does Lena think she knows about Sam and the reasons for her blackouts? What is Mon-El and Imra’s true mission on Earth? Will Mon-El confess to Kara that he still has feelings for her? And what other dangers await our heroes in this final stretch of the season?

On tonight’s episode, “Schott Through the Heart,” when Winn’s father dies, his estranged mother tries to reconnect and explain why she abandoned him; a copycat Toyman attacks, and the two must work together to stop him; Mon-El tells Kara something important about the Worldkillers.

See how Kara reacts to Mon-El’s information tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Crossing, Good Girls, The Resident, iZombie, The Terror, UnREAL, and Final Space.

Tonight, TBS premieres the new comedy The Last O.G.. Tracy Morgan (30 Rock, SNL) stars as Tray, a man who is released from prison after spending 15 years behind bars for selling drugs. However, he soon discovers that the world has changed a lot while he was in prison. Tray’s Brooklyn neighborhood has been gentrified and no longer resembles the hood he grew up in. His former girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish, The Carmichael Show, Girls Trip) is now married to a white guy (Ryan Gaul, Superstore), who’s been helping to raise the teenage twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray never even knew he had. Now Tray has put his life back together if he wants to be a part of his kids’ lives. Helping Tray adjust to his new life on the outside are his cousin Bobby (Allen Maldonado, black-ish) and halfway house administrator/wannabe comedian Mullins (Cedric the Entertainer).

This series has such a great cast, and it is especially great to see Tracy Morgan doing well and back doing what he does best. Tonight’s premiere primarily just introduces the characters and sets up the show’s premise, but it looks like this should be a really fun and heartwarming show once it gets going. Much like the other TBS comedies, the series will be serialized in its storytelling. Since I am an all or none type of person when it comes to watching a TV series, I definitely prefer this more serialized format, rather than a traditional sitcom that is more of a drop in/drop out setup that resets the status quo each week. I like to see the characters and storyline progress over the course of a season.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” ex-con Tray is shocked to see how much the world has changed when he’s released from prison for good behavior after a 15-year stint.

Catch the premiere tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, Splitting Up Together, For the People, Rise, LA to Vegas, The Mick, Black Lightning, and Legion.

A couple weeks ago, TBS added the fun new animated sci-fi series Final Space to its Monday night lineup. Gary has spent the last 5 years alone on a prison ship Galaxy One for impersonating a captain. Gary was starting to go stir crazy with only the ship’s computer and maintenance robots to keep him company. However, that all changed when a mysterious green alien, whom Gary named Mooncake, found its way on board. Despite its friendly looks, Mooncake is actually a planet-destroying super weapon that is being hunted down by the evil Lord Commander. When his ship came under attack, Gary captured and befriended a cat-like bounty hunter named Avocato.

In last week’s episode, Gary and Avocato tracked down a bounty hunter named Terk, in order to stop him from telling Lord Commander about Mooncake’s whereabouts. However, Terk used Avocato’s missing son as bait to lure them into a trap. They came face-to-face with the Lord Commander but managed to get away, though Gary’s arm was torn off in the process. Once they got back to the ship, Kevin was fitted with a robotic arm. Meanwhile, on Earth, Quinn found evidence that a cosmic disaster—a tear in space-time—may have caused the Imperium T3 to crash, but her superiors refused to listen to her, so she decided to take things into her own hand and set off into space in a stolen ship. And back on the Galaxy One, KVN and Mooncake received a visit from a mysterious woman named Nightfall, who looked an awful lot like Quinn.

TBS has been turning out some great comedies lately. I’m really enjoying this serialized space adventure. It is both action-packed and filled with lots of adult humor. The show has fun characters, an interesting ongoing story/mystery, and each episode ends with some new twist or cliffhanger. This show will make a great binge once the entire season is over, but I’m also enjoying it week-to-week. If you haven’t yet started watching, the first three episodes are available to binge on TBS’s app/website.

On tonight’s episode, “Chapter Three,” Gary tries to hide Mooncake safely away on the planet Yarno; Gary and Avocato are trapped in a terrifying mind-puzzle; Mooncake is forced to fight in a combat arena called the Deathcropolis; Quinn investigates the gravitational disturbance.

See the crazy space fun tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, Good Girls, The Resident, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie, UnREAL, and The Alienist.

Tonight, the hilarious TBS comedy, The Detour, returns for its third season. Last season, the Parker family moved to New York City, where they ran into Robin’s con-man father, J.R., who managed to get them involved in one of his seedy plans. J.R. was illegally obtaining pieces of an infamous statue of Saddam Hussein that he planned to reconstruct on one of his properties. At the end of the season, J.R. had kidnapped Delilah & Jareb and took them with him to Cuba. After rescuing their children, Robin, Nate, and the kids accidentally found themselves in a boat with Cubans who were defecting to America. However, the Parkers were still wanted by the FBI for the questionable import/exporting business J.R. got them mixed up in.

As the third season begins, the Parkers have been on the run for the past year, traveling from state to state, trying to keep a low profile from the USPIS. They now find themselves in Alaska, during the period when it is sunny 24 hours a day. They are tired of running and decide to try make a home there, but as usual, nothing ever really goes as planned for the Parkers!

This show constantly has me laughing out loud. I love how the series manages to completely reinvent itself each season (even down to the theme song). Each year the Parkers find themselves in some new setting/predicament, and despite their best intentions, things only get worse for them as the season progresses. However, dumb luck always seems to prevail with the Parkers. I also really enjoy the show’s no-holds-barred humor. The writers don’t worry about being politically correct, and no situation is too inappropriate. The cast is fantastic and really play well off one another. Jason Jones & Natalie Zea make Nate and Robin feel like a realistic couple, and the actors who play their children (Ashley Gerasimovich & Liam Carroll) are hilarious. This season, Graham Greene (Longmire) joins the cast as one the Parkers’ new Alaskan neighbors.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Run,” the Parkers finally settle in Alaska after a year on the lam, believing it to be the last place anyone would look for them, but their lies and deceits soon come back to haunt them.

Catch up with the Parkers in Alaska tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording This Is Us, LA to Vegas, The Mick, The Flash, Black Lightning, and Mosaic.

Tonight, TBS kicks off the second season of the dark comedy, Search Party. In the first season, New Yorker Dory (Alia Shawkat, Arrested Development) came across a missing persons flyer for former classmate Chantal Witherbottom. Dory didn’t know Chantal very well, but she quickly made it her mission to find out what happened to the young woman and enlisted the help of her friends. Most of Dory’s friends are a bit self-absorbed and narcissistic, and they don’t understand why Dory has become obsessed with Chantal, but they helped her out anyway. At the end of the first season, this makeshift Scooby Gang had managed to track down the place in Montreal where Chantal was staying. In a moment of confusion, Dory’s boyfriend Drew (John Reynolds, Stranger Things) whacked private eye Keith on the head with a candlestick, killing him. When Elliot (John Early, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp) saw what happened, he told them not to call the police. As they tried to clean things up and hide the body, Portia arrived with a happy and healthy Chantal – her disappearance had just been a misunderstanding all along!

As the second season opens, Dory, Elliot, and Drew must deal with the body hiding in the closet before the others discover what happened. Will they get caught? How will they dispose of the body, and how will they cover their tracks? Now that Chantal is no longer missing, will this group find a new mystery to try to solve, or will they just get back to their old self-absorbed lives is New York City? I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – who knew covering up a murder could be so funny?!

On the first half of tonight’s double-episode premiere, “Murder!” after finding Chantal and killing the not-so-villainous Keith, the gang is faced with the horrifying task of trying to bury a body before the sun comes up. Then, in “Conspiracy,” the gang goes on a mission to cover up Keith’s semi-accidental murder and return Chantal to her family, with just a few major roadblocks along the way.

Check out the first two episodes of the season tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Good Behavior, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and SMILF.
