Just when you thought you’d seen the last of the Dreamworks Dragons franchise, NBC is bringing back Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), Astrid (America Ferrera), Stoick (Gerard Butler), Gobber (Craig Ferguson), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and more of your favorite characters for the all-new animated holiday special, How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming.

This new tale is set 10 years after the end of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, just before that film’s epilogue. The latest generation of Vikings in New Berk hasn’t grown up with dragons and are unaware of the great bond that had once existed between dragons and humans. So as New Berk prepares to celebrate the Snoggletog Festival, Hiccup decides to put on a pageant to celebrate the dragons, which leads to some fun and exciting moments.

How to Train Your Dragon is probably my favorite animated franchise, so I’m excited that we are going to get a new story set in this world, especially with the original voice cast reprising their roles! I am really looking forward to checking out tonight’s holiday special.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Making It, The Resident, The Flash, Arrow, The Purge, and Treadstone.

Last week’s American Housewife was pretty fun. When Oliver tried giving his mom advice about her new lasagna business, she ignored him at first…until she was reminded that business & money were something Oliver was very good at and very interested in. So they became partners. He changed the name and the packaging and tried to get them into the Flavor of Westport (where chefs/restaurants from town could feature their food in order to draw customers), Oliver even showed how prepared he was when the man in charge said they weren’t a restaurant, and Oliver gave him paperwork stating that since the property had been a speakeasy or something way back when and it’d had a liquor license, that meant the house had one and was considered a restaurant. Silly old laws! LOL But then the man said everything had to be socially conscious (my wording): gluten free, nut cheese, yada yada. Katie refused, but when Oliver protested, she made up a lasagna to meet their terms…and Oliver couldn’t eat it, it was so terrible. So they made up Katie’s regular lasagna and snuck into the festival, secretly giving out a bunch of samples. It was a lot of fun seeing them work together.

Meanwhile, Greg had been trying to come up with something new to write about, but he’d been struggling. So when Angela recommended him to ghost write for a young YouTube star whose schtick was pulling pranks and shooting people with a paintball gun, he eventually said okay. He took Trip’s advice about pranking the guy in order to show he could hang and be “hip” and shot the guy with a paintball gun when they first met. The guy stormed off, and later, at the food festival, police stopped Greg and arrested him for it. But then the YouTube guy showed up, laughing, and said it was all a prank and that he’d read Greg’s book (really? LMAO) and that he’d love to work with him.

I enjoy this show. It’s far from perfect (Katie’s pretty over the top sometimes, to an annoying degree), but I really like it. I both like and dislike that they’ve moved Anna-Kat away from her OCD, although we get to see a lot of really strange Franklin, so I guess there’s that.

On tonight’s episode, “Women in Business,” Katie’s feud with Chloe Brown Mueller is reignited when Oliver discovers Chloe’s attempts to sabotage Katie’s lasagna business. Meanwhile, Anna-Kat and Franklin play matchmaker for Principal Amblin in an attempt to secure more privileges at school.

See how Katie and Oliver handle Chloe Brown Mueller tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching CMT’s Nashville Squares, Hawaii Five-0, & Blue Bloods.

Tonight, ABC’s Thursday drama lineup airs its fall finales. One of these shows about to take a break is A Million Little Things. Last week, Rome’s mother and father were preparing to go on their anniversary cruise when Gina got the call that Rome’s mother had died. Rome had a great relationship with his mother, and one of her dying wishes was for Rome and his father to mend their broken one. Rome and his father had never really gotten along. Rome always believed that his pop loved his brother Omar more and treated him better. But Rome made the first steps toward fixing his relationship with his father. Everyone came to the funeral, where Rome gave the eulogy. Gina was worried that this loss might send Rome into another suicidal depression, but he assured her that his sadness was just normal grieving. During the post-funeral party, PJ discovered his DNA kit hiding under the bed and learned that there was a 99.9% that Jonathan was his real father. So he silently stormed off, upset that Rome had been hiding the results from him.

At the party, Delilah suggested she might take the children to France for the summer, and this increased Eddie’s concern that his name wasn’t on his daughter’s birth certificate – Delilah could decide to just run off and never return, and there was nothing he could do about it. So he and Katherine confronted Delilah, even threatening her with legal action, but Delilah was adamant that her children not found out that Jonathan wasn’t their baby sister’s father. This didn’t stop Eddie and Katherine, who had bonded a bit over this, and Eddie started to fill out some legal paperwork. It seems like Eddie and Katherine could just simply let the cat out of the bag directly to Delilah’s kids, and then it’s too late, the truth would already be out there!

Meanwhile, Gary had been fired from work for taking too much time off to help Maggie. However, he didn’t want this to have an effect on Maggie’s decision whether or not to take a fellowship at Oxford, so he hid this news from her. Instead, he decorated the apartment with British paraphernalia to show her that he supported her decision, whatever it may be. Though, honestly, from a show standpoint, it seems highly unlikely that this would happen because one or both of them would be then leave the series.

As the episode came to a close, Delilah learned that PJ was Barbara Morgan’s son, and so she showed up at Rome and Gina’s door, asking why they hadn’t told her this. Will Rome and Gina finally tell her the truth about Jonathan’s relationship with Barbara and that PJ is Jonathan’s son? And will this finally convince Delilah to reveal the truth about her own daughter’s parentage? And how will Delilah’s children react to the news of all these secret love children? Will it be a relief to Sophie that PJ is her brother and that’s why he rejected her, or will this only make things worse? And how will PJ’s parents deal with him discovering the truth?

On tonight’s midseason finale, “Time Stands Still,” Rome helps PJ through a personal crisis; Gary and Maggie’s relationship takes a turn; Delilah, Eddie, and Katherine make tough decisions that will affect their families.

See how the first half of the season ends tonight on ABC at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Knight Before Christmas, Grey’s Anatomy, Young Sheldon, Carol’s Second Act, Superstore, Perfect Harmony, The Good Place, and Will & Grace.

I always enjoy when sitcoms do holiday-themed episodes, but the Halloween ones are always my favorites. TV characters always seem to have the most creative costumes – way more creative than anything you typically see from your local trick-or-treaters or at an adult costume party. Plus, the writers usually have a lot of fun mixing in some spooky and supernatural storylines into these normally pretty-grounded shows. Tonight, the entire ABC Wednesday night comedy lineup is Halloween-themed. as it goes from the 80s to the 90s and the present day.

In The Goldbergs, “A 100% True Ghost Story,” Beverly scores a bargain on four paintings, but something supernatural is causing them to be destroyed; Barry decides to throw a huge Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed party against Erica’s wishes. Barry Bostwick, Steve Guttenberg, & Stephnie Weir guest star.

Then, in Schooled, “Run, Rick, Run,” Coach Mellor is excited to celebrate Halloween in a couple’s costume with Julie, but his plan might be derailed by Principal Glascott; CB tries to scare the students into not tormenting each other during the school’s annual Halloween parade.

In Modern Family, “The Last Halloween.” Phil is determined to scare Claire on Halloween; Gloria feels self-conscious about her age when someone correctly assumes she is Jay’s wife; Mitch and Cam go to the WeHo Halloween Carnival after Lily decides to go to her first Halloween party alone.

And finally, in Single Parents, “Welcome to Hell, Sickos!” the kids head to the school for a spooky Halloween celebration with Douglas; Will has a stressful night trying to do too much; Poppy and Angie throw a Halloween party at Douglas’s house to try to prove to themselves that they are cool moms.

Check out the Halloween fun tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Stumptown, Survivor, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and American Horror Story: 1984.

On the last new episode of The Conners, Darlene’s secret relationship with David finally came to light, and it spelled bad news for her relationship with Ben. After Darlene got a flat tire, she texted pretty much everyone, and the first two to show up were Ben and then David. She got out of that awkward spot with neither man the wiser (or so she thought), but when chatting with Jackie (who’s kind of been an annoying witch about the whole thing, actually) about it later, Darlene realized that her decision about the two men was already made – her text to Ben had been long, sweet, talking about needing to cuddle, while her text to David had been short and to the point about needing a ride. Nothing sweet or romantic about it. She decided to go with David to his therapy appointment (which he’d been after her to do for a while) and break up with him there so he had the therapist’s support right away. But before she could tell him, he actually broke up with her, stating that she never “heard” him, that she hadn’t since they were 15 (and what an emotional flashback to the OG series!) and he needed and deserved more. Good for David. Darlene actually got emotional and realized it hurt, even though it was needed, because it closed the door on their long-standing relationship for good. She then decided to confess to Ben, but Ben figured it out at the tire standoff, and he was just finishing up a breakup letter to Darlene when she got to work to tell him. He broke up with her but didn’t fire her…which can only lead to some interesting times ahead at the office! (And I do hope they eventually get back together. He’s a good guy and is good for her.)

As for the others in the family… Harris has a new friend, Odessa, and they were headed out to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This was before Darlene’s lie blew up in her face, and Harris blackmailed her into letting her go out in a skimpy outfit. Odessa is not exactly an ideal friend for Harris – tattoos, smelling like pot…and indeed, though Darlene told Harris she better not smell it on her later that night, Darlene and Odessa smoked pot that night in Harris’s room. Becky walked in, reminded Harris they had an addiction problem in the family, and took away their bong (or whatever. I don’t do it, so I don’t know if that’s what it was or not. LOL).

Speaking of Becky… She told Louise that she wanted the open bartender position, but Dan secretly told Louise not to give it to her. Becky noticed and got upset. Dan said he was worried about her because of her problem with alcohol, and she reminded him she hadn’t had a drop since finding out she was pregnant with the baby. Things got heated again between them later, when he arrived home to find that Becky had gathered all of his beer and was in the process of throwing it all away. They found peace, and Dan realized he had to trust Becky. It’s really nice seeing them grow closer this season.

On tonight’s episode, “Nightmare on Lunch Box Street,” Jackie learns that the Chinese restaurant is going out of business and sees an opportunity to reopen the Lunch Box, but she’s caught by surprise when she uncovers a secret. Meanwhile, Mary gets upset when a woman assumes she is adopted, and Darlene continues to deal with her complicated love life.

See how the Conner family celebrates their first Halloween without Roseanne tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Chopped, Treadstone, & The Misery Index.
