There is a lot to watch tonight!
January 14th, 2019 under ABC, Fox, Game Show Network, Joey Fatone, Mark-Paul Gosselaar. [ Comments: none ]


There is a lot of good stuff to watch tonight and the night starts early, 5:30p exact That is when Joey Fatone tries his hand of hosting a game show on GSN.

Common Knowledge asks 2 teams of three rounds of questions that should be common knowledge and the winning team goes home with $10,000. Sounds easy, but it is harder than you think. For the first round, each member guesses which of the multiple choices are the correct answer and they get more points for each member that gets it right. For the second round the whole team has to guess the answer as one. Thus, they get more points in this one, so anything can happen and anyone can win. Now it is time for the final round and they have to answer 7 answers correctly without getting one wrong. If they do it, they go home with 5 digits. If not, they go home with 0.

Not only is Common Knowledge fun to play along with, it is also fun to watch Fatone hosting it. He is a natural born game show host.


Then at 8p but over at Fox, The Resident is back. The episode picks up a little after the fall season finale.

Conrad (Matt Czuchry) and Nic (Emily VanCamp) are running into the hospital to find out how his father is doing during emergency life-saving surgery.

There is also still fallout around Chastain Park Memorial from Lane (Melina Kanakaredes) giving patients chemo treatment even though they did not need it. To make matters worse, she has just been released from jail for the murder of one of them. The first thing she does is visit Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood). He says that he is no longer going to help her and she blackmails him with something from his past. What is he going to do about it?

Meanwhile, Devon (Manish Dayal) is dealing with the fallout of his own after calling off his wedding at the wedding because he has feelings for another woman.

This is just a few of the lively moments from the episode where not everyone will make it to the end of the episode alive. Who dies and what ramifications will there be?


Then at 9p, The Passage debuts on Fox about how the ultimate cure can kill us all. Project Noah has come up with a cure that can rid the World of all diseases or it can it wipe out the human race. They have been testing it out on adults, but some of them have been turning into vampire like creatures. Therefore, they need a child to do the test on.

Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), a young girl whose mother just died of a drug overdose and is now all alone in the World, is chosen as the subject. Project Noah hires Agent Brian Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to protect her. He lost a child of his own and feels a bond with Amy. Thus, he cannot let her be a test subject, and tries to do everything he can to protect her. Even if it means risking his own life.

He is on the run all by himself and Project Noah is using their best people to capture them. Can he save this girl that might the answer to all of our diseases or will they be caught and end the World? Each week, we will watch the two people who could save the World try to save themselves. All while learning what happens when we try to play Gd as we see the effects the cure has had on past test subjects.


Then at 10p, The Good Doctor is back on ABC. The episode picks up exactly where it left off with an unknown virus quarantining some of the doctors in the ER.

Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) is on the floor distracted by the sound of a buzzing lightbulb. Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) is operating on a man’s bowel and needs his help. She cannot talk him out of it because she is busy with her hands in a man’s body, but she will try.

While they are doing that, Alex (Will Yun Lee) is watching his teenage son suffer an asthma attack from outside the ER and he cannot get in. Eventually, he breaks in and saves his son and calms Shaun down. That will last for just a few minutes because the virus is taking its toll on Allegra (Tamlyn Tomita). If they don’t figure out what the virus is soon, she will die. With death comes birth as Shaun and Morgan prepare to deliver a baby to a woman who is only 36 weeks along. Talk about getting a whole year of medical school in just one day. That is what they get, we get to watch it all and find out who will get out of there alive. Someone has to or we will not have a show.

Talking about life and death, Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) will find out if he still has cancer. Shaun was supposed to take him, so Lea (Paige Spara) has taken him instead. He is expecting the worse, and Lea asks him all about his disease. It is good for him to be with someone who is not a doctor who can help him look at the patient side of life. How will their wait together change both of their lives? That is if he has one.

It is an intense episode but shows why this show was last year’s break out it hit.

ABC wants to laugh a little more this season!
December 14th, 2018 under ABC, Anthony Anderson, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]


ABC has had a sad fall, so they want to laugh a little more laughter in the spring. Therefore, they ordered some more episodes from four of their sitcoms. They asked Black-ish for two more and one extra ep from The Goldbergs, Single Parents and The Kids Are All Right.

Personally, I think we need more episodes of The Goldbergs, Single Parents and American Housewife because I cannot get enough of those shows and it is all about me.

I also think ABC jumped the gun on Kids because without The Conners as a lead in their ratings will be less than the amount of kids in their family!

How do the Single Parents celebrate Christmas?
December 12th, 2018 under ABC, Brad Garrett, Gossip Girl. [ Comments: none ]


It is Christmas time tonight at 9:30p on ABC and our Single Parents are going to celebrate together. While it might be the holiday season, it does not feel like it in for them. Don’t worry, they will make the most of it. That is not all they will be making the most of this Christmas Eve.

Poppy (Kimrie Lewis) is sad because her son is away with his dad, so she wants to be alone. Douglas (Brad Garrett) is not going to have that, so he invites her to spend some time with her and the twins. But he has an ulterior motive.

We find out that Angie (Leighton Meester) has a Santa Claus fetish, so the guy she is seeing dresses up at the man in red. You would think that would make her jolly, but he makes a mistake. One so big, it has her running to Will’s (Taran Killam) for help. While she is over there, she learns something about Will that makes us wonder why he his wife ever left him because he is perfect.

They might be single parents, but they are a family. I am so happy that they are letting us be part of their family because this is the best new comedy of the season.

ABC is changing up their schedule
December 12th, 2018 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]


ABC has had a weak fall lineup, so they are changing things up for the spring. Just be happy we have DVRs because there are so many changes. The thing I hate most about the new lineup is that A Million crappy Little Things is making me wait until March for new episodes of Station 19.

Is Dan moving on on The Conners? Black-ish goes to the movies!
December 11th, 2018 under ABC, Anthony Anderson, John Goodman, Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 8p on The Conners, an old friend (Katey Sagal) comes to town and she eyes on Dan (John Goodman). Is he ready to move on Roseanne? How will his kids react to a woman flirting with their dad?

Meanwhile on the ABC sitcom, Harris (Emma Kenney) gets busted by the cops for underage drinking, and Becky (Lecy Goranson) is the one that is home when the police bring her home. They promise not to tell Darlene (Sara Gilbert) about it, but she finds out anyway. What happens next might put a permanent wedge between the two sisters.

Finally, who did Matthew Broderick piss off to get this role? I understand that they want to give Laurie Metcalf something to do, but this is just awful.


Then at 9p on Black-ish, it is Christmas at the Johnson household. They celebrate by going to movies. Bo (Tracee Ellis Ross) will see anything. The kids want to see the latest comic book movie. Dre (Anthony Anderson), on the other hand, wants to see the Rosa Parks biopic because he thinks his family should support African American movies.

Who do you think wins? After a long debate, Dre wins and his family loses. How will they get out of it? You have to watch the episode to see the takeaway lesson.
