Tonight, NBC kicks off the new series The Enemy Within. CIA Director of Operations Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter, Dexter) was a brilliant operative who seemed to be at the top of her career when she was arrested for espionage and treason and sentenced to life in prison. Three years later, a coordinated terror attack occurs on U.S. soil, killing 14 government agents. It appears that the man responsible for the attack is the same person Erica had been working for, and he may have a mole in FBI helping him out. The FBI director thinks that to catch a spy they can use a spy and wants to enlist Shepherd, who was one of the government’s best code-breakers before she turned on them. However, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut, Goliath, Rosewood) is very much against this plan since it was Shepherd’s actions that led to the death of his fiancee. Now the two are forced to work together to stop the terrorists before they can strike again.

The cast also includes Raza Jaffrey (Homeland, Lost in Space), Kelli Garner (The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, Pan Am), Cassandra Freeman (Luke Cage), and Noah Mills (The Brave).

From the pilot, it seems like this show will be The Blacklist (con recruited to help the FBI) meets 24/Homeland (terrorism and moles). It doesn’t appear that the series will take on a case-of-the-week but rather be more character-based and explore a longer story arc, with twists and turns, slowly revealing details of why and how Shepherd was turned, as the FBI works to stop the terrorists and uncover the mole within their department.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” former CIA Agent Erica Shepherd, one of the most notorious traitors in recent American history, is brought out of a federal Supermax prison by FBI agent Will Keaton to help track down the criminal who is behind a coordinated attack on three cities.

See how Keaton gets Shepherd out of prison tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, The Passage, and The Other Two.

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding The Voice since last week’s eliminations, and I am very torn. I love Adam Levine, but what he did during eliminations last week was horrible. When he was supposed to be advocating for DeAndre, he used the time to plead for America to save Reagan because she was sick and didn’t get a chance to perform for herself. This should never have happened, because if a contestant can’t perform, they should be eliminated no matter how much you love them. We shall see going forward how many viewers are lost over this situation, because there is a lot of anger over this.

On tonight’s episode, “Semi-Finals,” the top 8 artists perform live in front of coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton for America’s vote. Plus, the artists team up for competitive mashup duets.

To find out what the judges have to say about this week’s performances, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Neighborhood, Magnum PI, Arrow, and Bull.

Last week, the third season of UnREAL premiered on Lifetime. As the season opened, Rachel had just finished her six-month self-imposed exile following the deadly events of the previous season. She reluctantly agreed to return to “Everlasting,” but she warned Quinn that she had made a vow to no longer lie. Just as she arrived on set, Rachel was ready to bolt again when she saw that ex Jeremy — who committed double murder for the show last season — had also returned, but Quinn and Chet told her they needed to keep him close so that they could be sure he wasn’t going to talk to the police. For its new season, Everlasting has its first ever female suitress, Silicon Valley mogul Serena, and it looked like she wasn’t going to be as easy to control as past suitors. However, it wasn’t long before the producers were off to their usual despicable, manipulative activities, which were jaw-dropping for the show’s new on-set psychiatrist, who couldn’t believe what he was witnessing.

I had forgotten how much I missed this show until I watched the season premiere. I found myself instantly sucked back into this crazy world with these insane, manipulative people. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out!

On tonight’s episode, “Shield,” after a poker game with the contestants that leaves Serena the sore winner, Chet teaches her how to be the woman that all men want to marry. Quinn makes a connection with one of the contestants after meeting Chet’s new swimsuit model girlfriend.

Find out what Chet teaches Serena tonight on Lifetime at 10:02/9:02c.

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

I think my favorite pilot that I got to watch over the summer was NBC’s The Brave, which is why it’s my first pick tonight. Avi Nir, an executive producer of Homeland, is also the executive producer of this one, and even though I didn’t watch Homeland, I know that at least the first handful of seasons it was very popular and a lot of people considered it a great show. So I have high hopes for this one as well. Considering it’s a procedural about the “complex world of America’s elite undercover military heroes,” (in NBC’s words), it’s going to be right up my alley. Also, trust me when I say you don’t want to miss a minute of the action…including the very last minute of the episode!

Anne Heche plays D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell. She and her team of analysts in Washington, D.C., have at the fingertips the world’s most advanced surveillance technology. Adam Dalton, played by Mike Vogel (Under the Dome) leads a Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists. Their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom helps them to save the lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world. It also stars Tate Ellington (Noah Morgenthau), Demetrius Grosse (Ezekiel “Preach” Carter), Natacha Karam (Jasmine “Jaz” Khan), Noah Mills (Joseph “McG” McGuire), Sofia Pernas (Hannah Rivera), and Hadi Tabbal (Amir Al-Raisani).

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when American doctor Kimberley Wells (guest star Alix Wilton-Regan) gets kidnapped by a group with terrorist ties, Captain Adam Dalton and his squad must take action and stop at nothing to save her. Across the world, D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell and her team of analysts guide Dalton along the way through as the group learns that Wells’s disappearance might have ties to something that could be catastrophic.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

The Voice is overflowing with incredible talent this season, and it was a tough round of battles last week. There were so many battles where I was torn between who should win and was wishing there were more steals. The best part of the battles was having such great mentors this season – especially John Legend, because he was so pleased to be there and had great advice. I’m really rooting for Adam this season because I think he’s due for a win.

On tonight’s episode, “Knockouts Premiere,” the knockout round kicks off with the artists selecting their own song to perform.

To watch these incredible artists fight for their place on the live shows, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Taken, 24: Legacy, APB, and Quantico.
