It’s mid-week, and we’ve started the new fall season, which is fantastic. It’s been great so far, and there’s more to come. There’s only one season premiere on tonight, but we’re here to give you our recommendations—and I have to be amused, because for all our protests, all three of us tonight picked a reality show. *snicker* 😉
It’s been a really great season of America’s Got Talent. I’ve been sad about some of the acts that have gone home, but the six acts are all great. There’s singers Cami Bradley, Forte (my favorite singing act), & Jimmy Rose, magician Collins Key, performer/dancer Kenichi Ebina, and comedian Taylor Williamson. I’m rooting for Forte, Collins Key, Kenichi, or Taylor. If one of those four wins, I’ll be happy.
On tonight’s 2-hour episode, “Results Finale,” after a thrilling summer, season eight concludes as a winner is named and awarded the $1 million grand prize. Special musical guests round out the program before host Nick Cannon reveals which act has been voted as America’s most talented. Featuring special performances from Josh Groban, Luke Bryan, Icona Pop and Il Divo with Heather Headley.
Find out which act takes home the prize tonight on NBC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Survivor, Mystery Diners, Thieves, Inc., Top Chef Masters, & Modern Dads.

Last week, The X Factor premiered with the new judges, making the judging panel three girls to one Simon. At first I thought it’d be his dream, but obviously it isn’t turning out that way, because the women are ganging up on him. Kelly Rowland has enough attitude to share, but is very sweet—she keeps Simon in line! Last week, there were a few auditions that made me cry, including Lillie McCloud, the 54-year -ld who blew us all away with “Alabaster Box.” There was also the beautiful and inspiring Rion Paige, who is 13 years old and sang “Blown Away.” Overall, it was a couple nights of amazing performances and a few really funny ones too; I’m looking forward to tonight’s episode.
On tonight’s episode, “Auditions #3,” more hopefuls audition and try to impress the judges.
To see who has what it takes, tune into FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching Survivor and Duck Dynasty.
Tonight, a new season of Survivor begins, and there’s a new twist. This season, one tribe will be made up of 10 returning players, while the other tribe will be made up of their loved ones. So instead of competing with their children, siblings, and significant others, these returning players will be competing against them! I’ve never really been a fan of the whole make a career out of being on a reality show, but at least this is something new—and I’m glad at least one tribe is mostly people new to the show.
It will be interesting to see how this new dynamic works and if the pairs still work with one another, even though they are on opposite tribes—because after all, it doesn’t really matter if the husband or wife wins the money… They will still be splitting it! And eventually, these tribes are going to merge, and they may have their partner back. Will there be similar alliance groupings on each tribe? Will married/family members have more of a target than those who are just boyfriend/girlfriend? It will be interesting to see who gets targeted on each team and why—will it be for their own actions, or because of their other half?
On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “Blood is Thicker Than Anything,” relationships are put to the ultimate test on Day 1, when castaways are shocked to learn they will be separated from their loved ones and have to compete against each other on separate tribes. Meanwhile, a former castaway attempts to rehabilitate their reputation.
Find out how this very different season starts tonight on CBS at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/recording the Big Brother finale, The League, Top Chef Masters, Thieves, Inc., and Broadchurch.
