Castle goes back to the ’70s tonight at 10p on ABC, and you don’t want to miss this far out episode, man!
While a construction company is tearing up the sidewalk outside of a building they are remodeling, they discover a body underneath it that has been there since 1978. Castle (Nathan Fillion) realizes that the person is notorious mob boss, Vince Lamotta, who has been missing for almost 36 years. Now Beckett (Stana Katic) and him know whose body it is, they have to figure out who killed him all those decades ago. Their leading witness, Harold (Jon Polito), has been trapped in the late ’70s since his boss went missing. That means, he still thinks it is 1978 and if anyone tries to tell him anything different, it confuses him. So now Castle and Beckett have to convert everything and everyone to look just like it did back then, in order to get Harold to talk. First the Morgue, then the squad room and finally a Disco. Although the last one had already converted back to the way it was, so they won’t have to do anything there. But the first two will get a total makeover and so will everyone who works there. But will it be enough to find the person who killed Vince Lamotta since it seems like there are so many people who wanted him dead? Can you dig it? Dig it you will because tonight’s Dyn-o-mite episode might be Castle’s best one yet. So whether you Cool Cats are a fan of the show or you’ve never seen episode, there is so much to love to about it. So grab your bean bag, burn some incense and enjoy Castle on ABC tonight at 10p!
Christian Slater had a huge movie career in the ’80s, but the same cannot be said about his TV career in the last decade. That’s because of the 4 series that he starred in, only one of them got a second season pickup and even that one got cancelled just a few episodes into it.
Now even though, three times was not a charm for him that didn’t stop him from doing a fourth show. But looking at what Mind Games became, he shouldn’t have done it. ABC announced today that they are cancelling the show after 5 really low rated episodes. Which is not a shock because as much as I love Slater, I couldn’t even watch a full episode of it.
So what will replace it? Repeats of Resurrection will fill the slot for the next 2 weeks and then Celebrity Wife Swap is back. If I were Slater, I would’ve done that show instead.
Last Thursday, Gladiators were shocked when James Novak was shot and killed on Scandal. Well yesterday Dan Bucatinsky, the man who played the beloved character, appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show, to talk about how he found out he would be unemployed. The cast was given a script, and they found out which actors had a target on them. So the cast had their theories who would it be. Some of them tried to reassure Bucatinsky that wouldn’t be him and he was hoping that they were right. Then he got a phone call from the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, and she told him she was letting him go.
As sad as I was to see him go, I think it was for the best because they made his character such a pitiful wimp. It’s like by killing him off, they put him out of his misery.
So I get why the ABC drama shot him, but I don’t get why Arsenio did it. Poor Dan, hopefully that will be the last time that someone shoots him on TV. Oh, and that he never gets shot in real life either and more importantly.
Tonight at 9p on ABC’s Shark Tank, four entrepreneurs under the age of 18 try to convince the Sharks of Shark Tank to invest in their ideas.
When my friend heard about it; he was like, I hope the Sharks are mean to them but he thought they would be soft on them because they’re kids. Well after watching the episode, I was able to tell him that yes they were easier on them, but not by much. The panel was real with these minors and didn’t really sugar coat things for them. Which is a good lesson for them to learn at such an early age because they all have real potential to make someting out of themselves. Seriously, I think at least one of them could come back and be one of the Sharks in like 20 years. That is how good they are.
When it comes to how many of them get a Shark to invest in them, all I will tell you is they do invest in more than one of them. I will also tell you though that not everyone gets a deal.
So like I said, they were easier on them but not by much.
Even though Shark Tank has a really strong season, I think tonight’s episode is the strongest one so far. I kind of like seeing them being a little nice to the entrepreneurs that dare to swim in the Shark Tank.
What if a person who died, suddenly came back to life? That is the premise for Resurrection that debuts on ABC tonight at 9p.
An 8 year old boy, Jacob (Landon Gimenez), suddenly wakes up in China and no one knows who is he because he isn’t talking. Obviously he is American, so he is flown back to the US. Once he is there, U.S. immigration officer J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps) is assigned to take care of him. Marty asks the kid if he knows where he lives and he nods yes. So they go to his house and Marty is greeted at the door by the boy’s father, Henry Langston (Kurtwood Smith). Marty asks him if his son is missing, but Henry tells him that his son died 32 years ago. As soon as Henry and his wife, Lucille (Frances Fisher) see the kid, they can’t get over how much the kid looks like their son. But how? That is the question that Resurrection asks.
As the episodes go on, more people from this small town come back to life. They remember dying and waking up, but nothing in between. As we find out how they died, we learn that their deaths did not happen like their loved ones thought. Does that play into their Resurrection? We will just have to tune in each week to find out and to find out why they have returned from the dead in the unique heartfelt drama.
Tonight at 9:30p ABC’s newest sitcom Mixology debuts and you will want to check it out. The first season of the show takes place over one night in a bar with 10 people trying to hook up.
Recently at the ABC TCA Winter Press Tour Day someone wanted to know, “Who is going to end up with who at the end of the night. Is it hard to do that knowing that if these people don’t get laid at the end of this, life will still go on, and there’s no stakes there? Like, how do you make that have stakes?”
Well the show’s star, Vanessa Lengies, responded to that question brilliantly by saying, “If people didn’t get laid, the world wouldn’t continue.”
I think we can all agree that her Words of Wizdumb can be used for more than just promoting the funny show.
If you are looking to have a super fun night tonight, then you will want to watch Super Fun Night on ABC at 9:30p.

It is that time of year to celebrate Christmas with the Hecks on ABC at 8p on The Middle, and this episode delivers like Santa on Christmas morning.
Mike (Neil Flynn) thinks it is going to be the perfect Christmas because Frankie’s (Patricia Heaton) parents aren’t coming this year, so he is really looking forward to spending it without the in-laws. Meanwhile Frankie is happy to have her son, Axl (Charlie McDermott), home all the way from college. Only problem is he would rather spend the time with his friends from high school. The two of them will try to work out a deal, but it will be tough negotiations. Talking about tough, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) gets a costly financial lesson tonight when he gives his mom the wrapping paper he was selling for school so he could get a gift. Frankie wants him to learn a lesson, so she makes him find a way to come up with the money to pay for those 20 rolls of wrapping expensive paper. Brick being Brick finds something else to sell to earn the money and then he has to find something to else to make up for that and so on. You just have to see what he is panhandling so he can make back that original $97 that is now so much more.
And then there is our sweet Sue (Eden Sher), Christmas was made for her but she was not made for Christmas. The happiest high schooler is handed some lemons and yet again she somehow makes lemonade as she makes laughs hysterically!
So tune in for a family Christmas episode that is unlike anything else on television and that is why The Middle is so enjoyable.
And you must watch all the way through for something that a lot of dad’s will now be trying with their sons that have grown up and moved out. It is the sweetest and most touching moment on television this season thus far. I hope that ABC posts that moment because it is something that every parent needs to use on their kid and I want to share it with all of you.
BTW I just had to share with you the greatest wrapping paper that I got with the screener.
If you are like me and love when people go crazy to decorate their houses for Christmas, then you are going to love The Great Christmas Light Fight that debuts on ABC tonight at 9p.
In each of the 5 episodes (1 airs tonight and 2 air the next and following Mondays), 4 families battle out to win the grand prize of $50,000. The families are based all over the country and they are showing us how magnificent their Christmas spirit truly is. Each family has different techniques and final products, but the one thing they all have in common is how beautiful their homes are when they turn them on. Well they are beautiful to us and really annoying to their neighbors.
One house tonight is synced to music, one is laid out over lots of land, one has snow and one is so bright you can see it from the sky.
Extreme Makover’s Michael C. Moloney has the tough task going to all of these houses to determine which is the most festive. It is not an easy job, but someone has to do it. His warmth makes this feel good competition show ever more enjoyable.
So tune in tonight and the next two Mondays for a show that will definitely brighten your day!
During the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s sitcoms had ‘very special episodes’ that tackled the big issues of the day like drugs, kidnapping and loss of virginity. Well tonight at 8p on ABC Last Man Standing is bringing that back to broadcast TV when they handle the topic of spanking.
When Bud (Robert Forster) admits that he spanked his great-grandson, Boyd (Flynn Morrison), for disobeying him, everyone in the family gets mad at him. Boyd’s parents, Kristin (Amanda Fuller) and Ryan (Jordan Masterson), don’t think that kids should be punished and they give their son sugar to get him to do what they want. Boyd’s grandparents, Mike (Tim Allen) and Vanessa (Nancy Travis), have their own opinions on the matter. So now the whole family is debating whether or not is OK to physically punish your kid when they disobey you.
It is an interesting topic that a lot of households ponder, and Last Man Standing handles it very well with the proper amount of humor. So tune in for what I hope is the official return of the ‘very special episode’ and also a really good episode that looks at both sides of the issue.
