[ # ] Lots of good TV to watch!
September 27th, 2017 under ABC, CBS, Dick Wolf, Empire


American Housewife is back for its second season tonight at 9:30p on its new night and time after Modern Family. What happens in September besides the new Fall TV season, school starts. It is time for the Otto kids to go back to school.

Their oldest Taylor (Meg Donnelly) decided she does not want to go to college. Their middle child Oliver (Daniel DiMaggio) is taking ballet and his teacher is really tough on him. Katie (Katy Mixon) goes to one of his classes and has it out with his teacher. That is not the only person she has it out with, she has it out with all of the moms at Anna-Kat’s school (Julia Butters). Then one of the moms says something to her that make hers reevaluate everything. To make matters worse, her husband (Diedrich Bader) wants to have another kid.

American Housewife got the coveted post-Modern Family slot because it has proven that is the type of show that can go on for many seasons. Tonight’s episode proves it and I cannot wait for the rest of the episodes.


Then at 10p, Designated Survivor is also back for its second season. It has been a year since someone blew up the US Capitol with almost every federal politician in it and Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland), the designated survivor, became President of the United States.

He has accomplished a lot and been through even more during those 366 days. Tonight, he has to deal with a plane that has been taken hostage full of people from all over the world including several US citizens. One of them is his friend. To make it even more complicated for him, the man who blew up the Capitol is still on the loose. Can he save everyone before it is too late?

The press has so many questions about the bomber and the press secretary has turned in a Sean Spicer. Because of that Seth Wright (Kal Penn) is not sure he is the right man for the job. Can Emily (Italia Ricci) convince him to say?

Kirkman’s second year in office is proving to be just as thrilling for us to watch as his first.


At 9p but over on CBS, David Boreanaz returns to TV after a whole summer off in SEAL Team. The military drama follows a team of elite Navy Seals who risk not only their physical lives but also their personal ones. Jason Hayes (Boreanaz) leads his team into difficult situations to save the world from danger. That means they leave their families behind and some times that costs them the people they love the most. As the series goes on, you will see how much they give up to protect people they do not know sacrificing the ones they do know.

When it comes to the show, I did not really care for the pilot. Thankfully, CBS sent out a second episode and that one is so much better. What I am trying to say, is do not give up this show just yet because it gets better. I even added it to my Season Pass.


At 8p over on Fox, Empire is back but Lucious’ memory is not. He is still dealing with the after effects of the explosion. He is finally home with his family, but he does not remember his past with them. Which is a good thing for him if you think about it. He has a nurse (Demi Moore), who is looking after him, and she is trying to protect him from the Lyons. Something Cookie (Taraji P Hensen) will fight her hardest to prevent. Cookie want him to be business as usual but he is not ready to do it.

Who will win out? You will have to tune in to find out. Empire got a much needed jolt this season. Therefore, if you gave up on the show, it is time to come back.


At 9p but over on NBC, Law & Order: SVU is back for its 19th season. Fin (Ice-T) went to Cuba to bring back a serial rapist and something fishy happened when he was bringing his suspect back to the States. Now that suspect has hired a lawyer who will do his best to get his client off because of that. If the SVU team cannot get his victim to testify, the rapist will walk free even though his DNA was found at the scenes of the crime.

But that is not only the reason to tune in, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) answers the door and old friend is on the other side of it. He has some shocking news for her, that will set up a huge story arc for her character this season. But that is all I will say. That and there is a reason why this show made it to its 19th season and counting.
