Home Free is back on Fox tonight at 9p and there have been a lot of changes to the show. Even though there have been a lot of changes, the one thing that hasn’t changed is all the heart!
Mike Holmes is back and this time Tim Tebow is helping him out. Another change is that the contestants are not working as couples, but by themselves. Instead of building their Dream House, they are building it for their hero. Each contestant has a different hero, like one man’s whose mother-in-law helped him through cancer or another person who wants to give the house to the person who gave their parent a kidney.
But before they can give them a house, they have to compete. It starts out the same, where the winner of the first challenge gets to pick their team. But how they figure out who goes to the elimination challenge is different. On tonight’s season premiere one contestant will do something that will have everyone turn against them. It will be interesting to see what happens next week to him.
But before we get to that, we see what happen when someone is eliminated. That is where the heart comes in and because of that I am so happy the show is back!
Over on NBC at 9p, Aquarius is back and this season starts out on August 9, 1969. A day that not only lived in infamy for Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony), but also for the whole world. That is day his followers killed Sharon Tate and 3 of her friends.
As that date plays out, we go back to 1967 and some of Manson’s followers have befriended Dennis Wilson from the Beach Boys. They will eventually move in with him and that will change things for Manson. We will see him start to evolve more into the man we know.
Then there’s Hodiak (David Duchovny) who has no idea that someday he will be investigating the man that shocked the world.
Now that Aquarius is tackling the Tate-LaBianca Murders, it is so much more interesting to watch. While it was interesting to see him become the cult figure in the first season, we also want to get to that climax moment. Now both of those moments have been merged together for this season.
Fox announced when their new shows will debut and when their old ones back. Unlike the other networks, they are all rolling out in the same week. Which I appreciate because I hate guessing when my DVR is going to record something.
So mark your calendars for the week of September 19th for Lucifer, Empire, The Simpsons and more.

A few weeks ago, Fox announced that they were bringing back Prison Break and they are already filming the new season.
Today, while filming a scene for the drama, an iron bar accidentally fell on Dominic Purcell’s head and he was airlifted to a hospital. The closest one was two hours away, but thankfully due to the quick thinking by his girlfriend AnnaLynne McCord and Christina Northrup, he got the right care as quickly as possible.
Tests revealed that he did not suffer any serious injuries, but he did break his nose in two places. Instead of being upset by it, he joked, “I got a free nose job out of it.”
He wasn’t the only one who could laugh about it afterwards, McCord said, “That hard head is good for something.” I say afterwards because in that photo of them in the helicopter, you can see the fear in her face. Fear that was alleviated when he was given the all-clear.
Once he was released from the hospital, he was flown back to the set and immediately went back to work. Proving he is just as tough as his character.
On Monday, Fox announced its Fall schedule and today they announced that they are already making changes to it. It looked like Pitch struck out and was going to be sent to Spring Training, but now the drama about the first female baseball player will debut in the Fall. The show takes over Bones’ Thursday at 9p slot in the Fall and the concluding procedural will now come back in the New Year at that time.
Pitch was supposed to air on Tuesdays at 9p in 2017, but since it moved up that means that Prison Break will now be held up at that time.
I get why Pitch is now debuting earlier in the season, Fox airs the Playoff and World Series and its getting a lot of positive buzz, but I wish they would’ve let Bones keep its slot and slated Scream Queens for the Spring. Now, that I think about it, it works out better for Bones because it won’t be up against Thursday Night Football on CBS and NBC.
All I can say about Fox‘s Fall schedules is that I am glad I have a DVR. Without I would never know when the shows that I watch are on.
When it comes to the new shows, I won’t comment on them until I see the trailers. Seeing is believing how good or atrocious they will be.
FOX FALL 2016 SCHEDULE
8:00-9:00 PM GOTHAM
9:00-10:00 PM LUCIFER
NBC had a great comedy with Undateable, but they just didn’t know how to promote it. They tried to by making it live, but then buried it on Fridays. The show just never had the support it needed. One season, it’s launched in the summer, then the next midseaon and finally the fall. People just didn’t know when to tune in because there was no consistency and no other strong sitcoms to pair it up with.
I am sure that everyone, who worked on the show, will land on their feet. I will just miss them. Someone give Bill Lawrence another show ASAP because he is the most caring Executive Producer out there who really cares about his show and the show’s fan. That and he knows humor!
Although, Lawrence just Tweeted that he will be shopping the show around and I pray someone buys it.
Undateable wasn’t the only show NBC broke up with today. They are no longer seeing Heartbeat, Crowded, Telenovela and Game of Silence. Heartbeat is their biggest loss of that bunch, another great show that was on the wrong network.
Talking about other networks. While ABC listened to the outraged fans and cancelled Castle after they lost one of the people who made up the show’s duo, Fox didn’t. Sleepy Hollow was renewed for a fourth season, even though the viewers were pissed that they killed off Nicole Beharie. That show, more than Castle, was built on the chemistry of the leads. Without that, the show will be deader than the Headless Horseman. I can’t wait to see how horrific the ratings will be for it.
Prince very rarely appeared on television, let alone a sitcom. But the late singer was a fan of New Girl, and he made a guest appearance on it. The writers wrote a party scene for him, and they invited a few celebrities to be on that episode. Two of the celebrities they asked were Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, but wait you don’t remember seeing them on that episode?
Zooey Deschanel explained why we didn’t see them to Conan O’Brien on his TBS show yesterday. The adorkable actress said that on the day of Prince’s taping, she was studying her lines when a PA came in and frantically asked for the all scripts and call sheets. Then when she went outside she saw that PA burning all of the papers she just took. Turns out, when Prince’s people asked which celebrities were going to be on the show, Deschanel says that they said they hope it isn’t a Kardashian. Thus, why there was no evidence of them ever being on that special episode.
We all know that Prince was a genius, this is just further proof of that.
On the last episode of The Last Man on Earth, we got some happy news. Carol (Kristen Schaal) and Tandy (Will Forte) are expecting their first child together. Tonight at 9:30p on Fox, we get some sad news. The virus is back which means we finally learn more about it. By the end of the episode it will claim one victim. To find who has it and who dies, you will have tune in. Make sure you have the tissues ready because there will also be tears. A lot of aughs too, but also some tears.
When we saw Will Forte with the right side of his face completely shaved off for The Last Man on Earth, we never thought anyone else would do that to themselves. We were wrong.
When Kevin Gibson was arrested in Miami last week, he was sporting the same beard in his mugshot that was posted by WKMG. I guess he is a really big fan of the Fox sitcom or he lost a bet to someone who is. Either way let’s hope this is the last time we see this hairdon’t because it is one of the ugliest looks ever and that says a lot. But it is sure is funny how long they have been keeping the joke running on the show!
Tonight at 9p, Lucifer grows tired of the human race when someone is killing in his name. What he doesn’t know, is the group that is trying to summon Lucifer (Tom Ellis) are not the people actually doing the murders. The person doing that is someone he knows. Everyone is a suspect including him.
When someone he has had conflict with in the past is murdered, he becomes the main suspect. How will he get out of this?
That all leads up to next week’s suspenseful and surprise-filled season finale. One that begins with a shocking moment and doesn’t stop until the final seconds. That last reveal sets things up for the second season. Why talk about next week now? Because I won’t be able to preview it next week without spoiling any of the episode. It’s one of those episodes that is so devilishly good, you don’t want to miss a single second. But you have to watch tonight’s episode in order to truly love it. You know what, if you’ve missed the season, now is the time to catch up.
Lucifer truly is one of the best new shows of the season. So what are you waiting for?
