Poor Dr. Rhodes on Chicago Med. He’s so stressed because of the stuff with Robin at home that things at work are going a bit crazy. Last week, it seemed like he’d made a mistake on a valve transplant, but in the end, it turned out the valve was faulty. It did lead to a great conversation with Dr. Latham, so that was awesome. Meanwhile, Drs. Charles and Reese are still at odds, disagreeing over the way he handled his shooter and the aftermath. It makes things very tense between them constantly.

But the big story lines last week were between April and Dr. Choi as well as Drs. Manning & Halstead. Ethan put April on the spot regarding a test for a long-time patient of hers, which at first looked like it might have done more harm than good. In the end, though, it showed that he had cancer, and it was heartbreaking watching April have to break that news to the man. As for Natalie and Will, their pregnant patient was so fanatical about eating “clean” that she was basically starving her unborn baby. She was 8 months pregnant, but the baby was only measuring 5 months. In the end, to save the mother and baby, they had to deliver the baby, who was small, but they were giving it nutrition to help it grow. It was a touching moment later when Will took Natalie to ride the Ferris wheel after she’d told the pregnant woman that her biggest fear after having her son was heights.

I’m really enjoying this season so far, although I’m already over the fighting between Sarah and Dr. Charles as well as Robin’s health issues.

On tonight’s episode, “Trust Your Gut,” when Goodwin receives financial complaints from the hospital board, she is forced to implement new guidelines that cause headaches for the doctors. Dr. Rhodes and Ava continue to compete in the operating room, while Dr. Charles and Dr. Reese are surprised when they treat a man who has a peculiar theory about his sickness. Dr. Manning and Dr. Choi can’t figure out what is wrong with a young girl, leading them to look to a questionable source for answers.

See what new guidelines Ms. Goodwin is forced to put into play tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, Will & Grace, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chopped.

It’s here, it’s here! Tonight is the season premiere of Bones. It’s been SIX long months since the previous season finale. The FBI & Squints were once again on the trail of the Puppeteer, the serial killer who lived with his victims’ bodies before disposing of them. It seemed like Bones was a target, and sure enough, in the end, she was kidnapped by none other than…ZACK! So is Zack the killer? How did he get out of the institution he’s been in for years? Where does he have Bones, and why? We’ll get those answers tonight.

This is the final season of the show, so there’s bound to be a lot of surprises. Hopefully we’ll see some great guest stars and get some great wrap-ups for our favorite characters. I’ve seen the first few episodes, and I know it’s off to a great start!

On tonight’s episode, “The Hope in the Horror,” Booth and the lab team desperately search for Brennan after she’s kidnapped by her former assistant, Zack Addy.

See if they can find Bones tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, Chicago Fire, MasterChef Canada, Chicago PD, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Last week’s NCIS dealt with a congresswoman who was receiving threats, including a dead rat left in her car with a note saying she was next. The woman didn’t seem to take them seriously at all, until her assistant was killed. She annoyed me the entire episode. I guess you have to admire her “can do” attitude, but it was “must get elected, no matter the consequences, and that irritated me. I did call who the killer was. Shame on the assistant’s girlfriend! And I was kind of shocked to see Vance and the congresswoman flirting and agreeing to go out on a date. (Again, she annoyed me there. She was way too…take-charge, too…I dunno…something, for me. LOL)

I love holiday episodes on my procedurals, and I have loved all the episodes of NCIS where we see a young Ducky. So combine those two things, and I know I’m going to love tonight’s episode! Plus, Fornell is back, and he’s a riot, especially his interactions with Gibbs.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tie That Binds,” after the NCIS team tracks evidence from the murder of a Navy captain to Ducky’s deceased mother, Ducky looks back and questions a pivotal life choice he made 37 years ago. Also, the team exchanges holiday gifts, and Gibbs spends Christmas dinner with Fornell. Adam Campbell returns as Young Ducky, and Juliette Angelo returns as Emily Fornell.

Find out what choice Ducky questions tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

ncisnola1025smallLast week was a defining episode for Sebastian on NCIS: New Orleans. While his mom was in town, he was kidnapped by a small group of people who wanted his knowledge of virtual reality games (specifically ones where you break out of prisons and locked rooms, etc.) to help break a bad guy out of prison. Sebastian kind of rocked it… He reached out secretly via tablet to Pride when the bad guy left him alone in a room in the prison so Sebastian could start the process to break out the prisoner. After the bad guys nearly got away, Sebastian actually helped take them down after the left the prison. He felt so confident that he asked out the waitress he’d been sort of flirting with for a while.

I didn’t like that Percy wasn’t there last week, especially because Lasalle didn’t know why she wasn’t there. Stupid writers… Giving us shippers some hope and then yanking it away! LMAO Tonight looks like it should be a good episode…an emotional one. I can’t wait!

On tonight’s episode, “Course Correction,” NCIS and FBI investigate a private plane crash in the bayou that killed three sailors. Also, Sonja and Lasalle interview candidates for the team’s open agent position.

See if they can figure out what caused the plane crash tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, NCIS, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, No Tomorrow, Aftermath, Chicago Fire, & Chopped.

themiddle1118smallI always enjoy holiday-themed episodes of family sitcoms, and tonight, Thanksgiving comes to the ABC Wednesday comedy lineup in both The Middle and The Goldbergs. The Middle has had a Thanksgiving episode every season, and they’re not going to break that tradition this year. The Hecks’ past Thanksgiving adventures have included Brick getting lost in a corn maze, Mike reconciling with his brother, Frankie and her sister spending the holiday at their parents’ house, Marines joining the Hecks for the meal, and a surprise visit from Dr. Goodwin and Uncle Rusty’s wife and kids. And last year, the Hecks headed to a restaurant buffet for the holiday, where Sue, Brick, and Axl all brought dates – though Axl’s date was a girl he didn’t even know.

So what does the holiday hold for the Hecks this year? Will they find themselves hosting more surprise guests? Will they spend the day together? Or will they each have different crazy situations to deal with? You can bet that no matter what happens, they’ll all come together by the end to celebrate the spirit of the holiday!

On tonight’s episode, “Thanksgiving VII,” the Hecks decide to forgo Thanksgiving when Frankie must pick up a holiday position as an overworked woman from the 19th-century; Sue goes back to work at Spudsy’s in hopes of running into Logan; and Axl becomes emotional over how his life’s turning out. Meanwhile, Mike and Brick bond during a power outage.

See all the Thanksgiving family fun tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Empire, Arrow, Supernatural, American Horror Story: Hotel, The League, and You’re the Worst.
