Chi McBride is one of those actors who knows how to give such a powerful performance that it will send chills through your body and that is exactly what he does on tonight’s Hawaii Five-0 at 9p on CBS.
Lou Grover’s (McBride) friend of 25 years, Clay (Mykelti Williamson), travels down to Hawaii from Chicago with his wife, Diane, to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The four long time friends celebrate the couple’s arrival, but the next day they want to celebrate their special day alone on the island. Grover partied a little too much and he is hungover, but then a phone call from his friend sobers him real quick.
Clay and Diane went for a hike up one of the scenic mountains and now she is lying on the ground below dead. Everything points to it being an accident, but Lou is not convinced that it isn’t murder. Now he will do everything in power to prove that his friend didn’t kill his wife, although everything points to the fact that he did.
Will Grover lose his best friend to accusations or to jail? You just have to tune in to this intense and emotional episode to find out. Be prepared to know that there are a few scenes during the episode that will gut you because of his persuasive performance during them.
Dean McDermott is ending the year embracing someone else? So is his marriage to Tori Spelling over? Nope, the still married couple took their four kids to Merry Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood. While there, Dean posed with the star himself and we got this sweet photo.
Tori Spelling posted her holiday card on Instagram and said, “So in love with our family’s holiday card!!!”
Here is why I find it contradictory. For the last few months we have been hearing about her marital woes with Dean McDermott. In fact, doesn’t she have a reality show on Lifetime based on that? So then I have to wonder why is she sending out a card that reads “Happy Holidays” with her family looking like a loving one? Why not say “Season’s Greetings? instead of using the word happy when every other week all we hear about is that her marriage is over?
I mean, it could just be me reading too much into it, but then again I’ve been inundated with her marriage problems ever since Us Weekly reported that her husband reportedly cheated on her.
Dean McDermott has poured his heart out time and time again on Lifetime’s True Tori, but he told Access Hollywood‘s Billy Bush he can’t do it anymore. Spelling’s husband said, “I’m not going to continue with the show.” Then he added, “We have five more shows left… I can’t do this anymore. I can’t keep opening a vein, opening my soul and sharing my feelings and thoughts and demons with the world.” Even from just watching the clip above from last season, you can totally understand why he won’t be doing the show anymore. I don’t know how he was able to do it as long as he did.
McDermott admitted the show hasn’t been all bad, he has a learned a lot from it.
Bush also asked him about Tori’s mom Candy, and he said that he only sees her about 8 times a years for holidays and birthdays. Then when he was asked if his wife got any money from her father’s huge estate, he said “In my recovery, all I can be is honest and no. No. There’s no financial help.”
Finally, McDermott told the host that he believes his marriage will survive his cheating scandal. Now the question is will True Tori survive without him? I don’t see how it can, can you?
True Tori is back on Lifetime tonight, but Tori Spelling couldn’t do press for it because she is in the hospital. Just because she is confined to a hospital bed, doesn’t mean she wouldn’t find a way to let the world know about her show. So she took a picture with a face mask, wrote the name of the show on it and posted the photo for the whole world wide web to see.
She might be down, but the 90210er is definitely not out for the count.
Tori Spelling Instagrammed a photo of her two oldest kids selling lemonade and snacks for humans and dogs. I guess now that Liam and Stella are 7 and 6, it’s about time they started earning their keep.
Actually, it was just the siblings having some summer fun. Just like other kids their age, and they are looking just as cute as all the other children who work a lemonade stand.
Tonight at 9pm on NBC’s About a Boy we finally meet Marcus’ (Benjamin Stockham) dad and he’s played by Tony Hale. Hugh Womple (Hale), who has been in Antarctica studying penguins, and he just flew in to see his son for a few days. Just because he is there to see him, doesn’t mean he really wants to spend time with him. So now Will (David Walton) will do everything in his power to get those two closer and Fiona (Minnie Driver) and Hugh further apart.
Hale is the perfect actor to fill out that family because he is just quirky enough to be patriarch of it. His presence on the show explains even more why Marcus is the way that he is. Awwwdorable in his own special way!
Then at 10p on NBC, Chicago Fire is rocked by a massive explosion. Lt. Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Dawson (Monica Raymund) volunteered for a charity run at Chicago Medical and something so easy becomes the complete opposite in a second. Dawson goes in the hospital leaving Casey alone outside. While Casey is walking to two little girls, a bomb goes off throwing him into a car, and killing and injuring several people. Now everyone is on a full alert trying to save as many as they can. Which is made a lot more difficult because part of the hospital is missing due to the bomb.
Missing in the rubble is Dawson and her co-workers will do everything they can to find her. Will they find her alive? She isn’t the only person who is missing or injured from their station, someone is working through their injuries and they might become one of that fatalities if they don’t seek some help ASAP.
Along with dealing with the injured, Boden (Eamonn Walker) realizes that there might be another bomb in the hospital and they have to find it. So Cruz (Joe Minoso) and Otis (Yuri Sardarov) go in search of it and eventually they find the explosives. Will they be able to diffuse it before it goes off?
For most of this episode, it is focused on Fire and not PD. Because of that it is really intense as they do a search and rescue. I found myself glued to the television from the beginning to the end. It reminded me when ER was at its best because it is that well done.
So well done I think that NBC made a mistake by doing Chicago PD instead of Chicago Medical. I so want that spinoff instead after this episode.
Now having said that, tonight’s storyline concludes tomorrow on Chicago PD at 10p on NBC.
Also at 10p, but over on Lifetime is True Tori and it is a very emotional and revealing episode. So revealing that Dean McDermott says something that halts production on the show while the network decides if they can continue on with him and the show. What does he say that is so shocking? You just have to tune in to find out.
Let’s just Tori Spelling and him are leaving nothing out about their private lives on this show and it really is their true story. So have the tissues ready because there are a lot of real moments on this episode that will have you crying along with them.
Tonight at 10p Killing Kennedy debuts on the National Geographic channel and you don’t want to miss this incredible two hour docudrama.
Killing Kennedy starts off during the last few months of 1969. During that time, John F Kennedy (Rob Lowe) wins his party’s vote to run for the President of the United States. Meanwhile at that same time Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar) is renouncing his US citizenship and defecting to Russia. For the next 4 years their lives will go in different paths, but on November 22, 1963 their paths will collide and neither one of them will live to see December 1963.
What happens in those four years before they die is told in such a way that you will be glued to your television sets like people were almost 50 years ago to the day. You will learn the possible motive Oswald had for shooting President Kennedy and how this shooting could’ve possibly been stopped if more people had paid attention to the warning signs.
It isn’t only about these two men, it is also about the women that stood by their sides until that fateful day. Jacqueline Kennedy (Ginnifer Goodwin) is the supporting wife, who stands by her husband’s side and the man she loves is the most powerful man in the world. Marina Oswald (Michelle Trachtenberg) is a woman who lives in Russia, meets, and marries the wrong man. When he decides he wants to return to America, she is forced to leave her life behind to be with the man she married. She is alone America and stays with her husband because she is rightfully afraid of him. Something that is very evident one day in late November 1963.
While most movies that cover the Kennedy Assassination, only cover JFK’s story and/or the days leading up to and following his death. This telemovie covers the years leading up to his murder and the days following his last breath. Because of that, it is a different take on a story we know so well. I was so amazed by how intriguing this movie was that I could barely blink because I didn’t even want to miss a split second of it. Plus it will amaze you how perfectly Rob Lowe captures John F Kennedy’s essence, you will forget that is Lowe playing him and think that one of our greatest Presidents has come back to life. When it comes to Rothhaar, he was the bad man you loved on Last Resort, but in this role he makes you hate him as Oswald should be hated.
If you have any interest of what happened to JFK on November 22, 1963, then you must watch Killing Kennedy tonight. I am promise you will not be disappointed.
