Tonight is the series premiere of a fun new show on FOX called Ultimate Tag. It is exactly what you’d think: a great big exciting game of tag – crossed with the show from 2007/2008, American Gladiators. Six contestants (three men, three women), all athletes, military, martial artists, etc, compete against a group of “taggers” with names like The Flow, La Flair, Spitfire, Iron Giantress, Flame, Caveman, Big Deal, and more. Most of the taggers are free runners or experts in parkour. The course is three-dimensional, so the contestants and taggers must run, jump, slide, climb…basically do whatever they need to do to beat the clock and each other.

Kyle didn’t really enjoy the screener, but I thought it was a lot of fun. The names are silly (I loved American Gladiators, and I feel like most of the names were better on there…), but the action is fun, and the hosts (the pro-football-playing Watt brothers, JJ, TJ, & Derek) were good as well. I’m looking forward to seeing more.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on FOX at 9:02/8:02c.

I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games & S.W.A.T.

After almost a year (!!!), we’re FINALLY getting the final season premiere of Blindspot tonight. In case you don’t remember, on the 2-part season finale, the team was racing against the clock to stop Madeline Burke’s Helios attack. When they finally got a lead into two of her associates and tracked one down, they found him with Keaton. Turned out the guy was former CIA. Nash, Keaton’s boss, showed up. They argued and agreed to go to a neutral location and question him together, but on the drive there, rockets blew up the SUV and killed him. In order to figure out who the mole inside the CIA or FBI was, the FBI brought in Madeline from prison, but she fed them nothing but whining about being innocent and this being an attack on her from the FBI, just like they had a problem with her father.

They captured Dominic on security cams at the Belmore science lab, getting handed a package. That’s when we found out Nash was the mole in the CIA and he warned Dominic to get away from Belmore before the team could get there. They did find the woman who gave Dominic the package. They were shocked when they found out it was a computer virus, not a biological agent. Not long after that, they figured out his target: NYIOC, which controls the power grid to the entire East Coast. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get to Dominic in time to stop him from uploading the virus. Patterson and Zapata stayed in the lab to try to stop the virus, while Jane & Weller went after Dominic. During his escape, Jane and Weller cornered him in the hallway, and he basically sacrificed himself for the cause. And unfortunately, Kathy was still working with him (remember, she thought they were in love…), so she was able to stop Patterson from halting the virus…and the entire power grid went down.

Last week’s episode of The Flash was packed full of action and emotions that left us on the edge of our seats. Eva is free of the mirror, while Mirror Iris was shattered in Barry’s arms – which was bittersweet because even though she was a fraud, it still looked like Iris. The end of the episode had Iris still trapped in the mirror and her and Barry speaking to each other through the glass. It was heartbreaking. I can’t wait to see them reunited, but I am not sure how long they are going to have to keep fighting before she’s free.

On tonight’s episode, “Pay the Piper,” when Godspeed returns, Barry turns to Hartley Rathaway for help. However, things get tense quickly after Barry realizes one of the changes from Crisis is that The Flash and Pied Piper are now enemies. Meanwhile, Iris tries to escape the Mirrorverse.

To see if Iris can escape the Mirrorverse, tune in to The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and FBI: Most Wanted.

Tonight, NBC is reuniting the cast of Parks and Recreation for a special hour of TV. The series originally ran on the network from 2009-15 and featured an amazing cast, including Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir, and Retta.

Tonight’s event begins with The Paley Center Salutes Parks and Recreation, a half-hour special that looks back on some of the show’s most iconic moments over its seven seasons, as well as some fun behind-the-scenes stories from the cast. This will be followed by the all-new A Parks and Recreation Special, a brand-new episode of the series that was filmed by the actors at their homes during this time of isolation. The producers have stated that all of the original characters from the series will return, as well as several guest stars from the Pawnee universe. When the series ended, it was sad to say good-bye to these quirky characters, but I am so excited that we’ll get to take this trip back to Pawnee to get an update on Leslie Knope and the gang. This show always made me laugh, and I am really looking forward to this new episode – I am especially interested to see if/how they work in the fact that Chris Pratt has become a major film star since he initially took on the role of the dim-witted, out-of-shape Andy Dwyer!

On tonight’s special, “A Parks and Recreation Special,” Leslie Knope connects with her friends from the Pawnee Parks and Recreation department – Ron Swanson, Andy Dwyer, April Ludgate, Ben Wyatt, Tom Haverford, Donna Meagle, Ann Perkins, Chris Traeger, and more – to check in during a challenging time.

The special and new episode air tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Young Sheldon, Council of Dads, Top Chef, and Tacoma FD.

The Flash has been stringing viewers for a while now with Iris’s doppelganger, which has put the beloved West-Allen relationship status on the rocks. This was especially apparent with the emotional fleeing of fake Iris from Barry on last week’s episode. The real Iris is trapped in the mirror dimension with the deceptive Eva, who is actually behind the whole thing for revenge against her husband. I am hopeful that going forward we will get answers on Camilla as well as wrap this story up.

On tonight’s episode, “Liberation,” after recent events, Barry takes a closer look at his life with Iris. Eva makes a bold move.

To see what happens with Iris, tune in to The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, FBI: Most Wanted, and Ellen’s Game of Games.
