Tonight, CBS launches the new reality series, Hunted, and I can’t wait to check it out. Nine teams of ordinary people will participate in a real-life manhunt as they try to evade capture for 28 days. Each team that manages to succeed will take home $250K! However, these contestants will be hunted by a team of highly-skilled investigators utilizing the latest technology. The Hunters in the field will work with the agents in the Command Center, looking at phone and browser histories and whatever else they can get their hands on to try to identify potential collaborators and figure out where the fugitives are hiding in the massive 100K-square-mile game area in the southeastern U.S. This show sounds so exciting, and I can’t wait to meet the investigators and fugitives and see how this adventure plays out. Who will let the pressure get to them, how will they slip up, and who will manage to evade capture for 28 days?!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Internet Never Forgets,” one team loses valuable time in their escape from town, and a pencil could foil another couple’s plan.

Watch the teams try to escape their pursuers tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Tonight’s premiere airs after the football game on the East Coast, which means it will likely get delayed, so be sure to pad your DVR recording.

I’ll also be watching/recording Son of Zorn, Worst Cooks in America, The Librarians, The Young Pope, and Homeland.

The Librarians Episode 301 "And the Rise of Chaos" 5/6/16 IMG_8411I’m so excited because tonight is the season premiere of The Librarians on TNT. On the last season finale, the group had their hands full battling Prospero, who was wreaking havoc with modern technology because he wanted to create an idyllic forest utopia, no matter the cost. To stop him, Flynn and Baird had to travel back in time to 1611, while the others battled him in the present time. Fortunately, they were able to defeat him, which meant the season ended on a high note. The team is working together well, and at least in the first few episodes, Flynn is still working side by side with them. It’ll be interesting to see how much of the season Noah Wyle is around for!

On tonight’s episode, “And the Rise of Chaos,” when the Egyptian God of Chaos inhabits a human body, he attempts to release Pure Evil into the world, thus beginning the final battle of Good vs. Evil. In order to stop him, the Librarians must decipher a series of clues within a science museum, including a mysterious warning spoken by exhibit mannequins that have come to life.

See if the Librarians can stop Pure Evil from taking over tonight on TNT at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, NCIS: LA, Holiday Baking Championship, & Clash of the Grandmas.

thewalkingdead111smallIt was another amazing episode of The Walking Dead last Sunday, one that kicked off a huge debate as to whether or not one of the series’ original characters is actually dead. The episode gave us the point of view of Rick and his group just after the horn sounded as the Alexandria massacre was taking place. Rick headed off on his own to get the RV so he could try to divert the walkers from Alexandria. This left Glenn and Michonne to lead the rest of the Alexandrians to safety. As he left, Rick warned his friends to not be dragged down by these people and abandon them if they had to in order to survive.

While trying to outrun the walkers, quite a few members of this under-experienced group ended up dead. By the end of the episode, Glenn and Nicholas found themselves in an alleyway full of walkers, standing on top of a dumpster with no way out. Nicholas decided he couldn’t take any more and shot himself in the head, knocking Glenn and himself into the sea of walkers. We then saw Glenn screaming as the walkers seemingly pulled out his guts – or did Nicholas fall on top of him, and they were actually tearing into him instead? (fingers crossed!)

The episode ended with Rick making it to the RV, but he had trouble getting it started. And to make things worse, the Wolves showed up, but he managed to get a gun and spray bullets all along the side of the RV, taking them out. He continued to struggle with the RV, but the gunfire had attracted a large horde of walkers, who were quickly surrounding the vehicle.

Is Glenn really dead? If not, how the heck is he going to get out of the situation he’s in? The same goes for Rick –will Daryl show up to somehow distract the walkers so he can get the RV out of there? And what’s with his hand? It seemed badly injured. Is it infected? Will Rick need to chop off his hand (or more) in order to stay alive? Or is his situation even worse?

It was just announced the other day that The Walking Dead has been picked up for a seventh season – which is a no-brainer (no pun intended) – so fans can relax, knowing there’s a lot more to come.

On tonight’s 90-minute episode, “Here’s Not Here,” a new face appears; trust issues form.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Quantico, The Librarians, Talking Dead, The Leftovers, Project Greenlight, and Homeland.

scorpion118smallI am really loving Scorpion still, although not so much Ralph’s father being around. I mean, I’m all for him actually BEING a father to Ralph, and I know he won’t actually take Paige to Portland or wherever he’s possibly moving to, since that would mean she’s off the show. But still… Just being there, he’s coming between her and Walter, and I don’t like that. LOL I am digging the cases and the rest of the cast, though. It’s one of my favorite shows of the season, easy, and because of that, I’m thrilled we get an extra episode this week because it’s on tonight after the AFC Wild Card Game. Not only that, but it was just renewed for next season, too, which is fantastic!

On tonight’s episode, “Charades,” Team Scorpion is tasked with uncovering a mole inside the CIA whose judgment is clouded by matters of the heart and is being coerced into stealing deadly chemicals. Also, in preparation for the case, Paige gives Walter a flirting lesson.

See if the team can find the mole tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Galavant, The Great British Baking Show, Gy’s Grocery Games, The Librarians, Worst Cooks in America, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

thelibrarians111smallI’m really loving The Librarians. Last week was a lot of fun when the team realized that fairy tales were coming to life…only, these weren’t your normal fairy tales. They were being created and manipulated by an old man (a REAL librarian) who, by “reading” from a magical book, was draining the life out of a little girl. The best part of the episode was when Ezekiel finally got the book from the guy, gave it to the little girl, and told her to make up her own stories. She made Eve a ninja princess, Jake a robot with awesome vision, and Cassandra got turned into Merlin in disguise. And the high school football team as the wolves? Pretty funny.

There are only two weeks left to this adorably fun show, since TNT is airing double episodes tonight and next week. It hasn’t been renewed yet…but it has to be, doesn’t it? I would hate to see them cancel it. It’s been too much fun to watch.

On tonight’s first episode, “And the Rule of Three,” when a group of competitive high school students start undercutting each other with witchcraft, the Librarians have to intercede before disaster destroys them all. Then on the second episode, “And the Heart of Darkness,” the Librarians encounter the House behind the legend of ALL haunted houses and set out to destroy it.

See how the Librarians defeat witchcraft and a haunted house tonight on TNT at 8/7c & 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Galavant, Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Worst Cooks in America, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
