Must see TV is back on NBC tonight!
September 28th, 2017 under Dick Wolf, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

After a few years off, Must See TV is back on NBC starting tonight at 8p with Superstore. Since they did not send out a screener, I cannot review how the devastating tornado effected Cloud 9 and all of the store’s employee’s lives. I will be watching it live and so should you!

Then at 8:30p, Michael (Ted Danson) gets to reintroduce Elanor (Kristen Bell) to The Good Place all over again and again and again and again. That is because she keeps figuring out that they are really in the bad place. Well one time, someone else does. But you will have to watch to see who. Anyways, will the Bad Place Four finally figure out a way to get Michael to stop erasing their memories or will they be living Groundhog’s Day in Hell over and over and over again? You have to see tonight’s twist to find out because there is always a twist!

Then at 9p, the most anticipated show of the Fall season makes its debut or should I say redebut? That is because Will & Grace is finally back!!!

I did not watch the sitcom the first time around, so I have been binging it on the NBC app for the last week. I love this show and I wish someone would have told me how funny and enjoyable it was back when it aired originally. Since I have a new love for the beloved show, that means I am going to be very critical of the revival.

And I LOVE it more that Will (Eric McCormack) & Grace (Debra Messing) & Jack (Sean Hayes) & Karen (Megan Mullally) love each other. They found a way to make everything old, new again. In fact, like a good wine, it got better with age. The chemistry between these fours is so rare and comes off so naturally on camera. The things the writers give them to, you can tell they love these so much characters so much that they wanted to do them justice and they did. It is a love fest all the way around from them to us and back to them.

Tonight’s series second-time-around premiere starts off, eliminating all of the changes from the series first-time-around finale. Very quickly we find out that Will & Grace are single and childless, Karen is still rich and Jack is still Just Jack!

Once we get that all cleared up, Grace, who is still a designer, gets the job of a lifetime, thanks to one of Karen’s other girl friends. That is decorating the Oval Office. When I heard the show was going to get political, I was nervous. I get so much politics already on social media that I do not want it my scripted television. That is supposed to be my escape from it all. If that is how you feel, then do not worry because the show touches out in a way that will make you laugh and not get pissed off. In fact, of the three episodes that I watched, tonight’s is the only one that touches it. But they do deal with other issues in the next two weeks that proves that are 11 years older than they were when the show ended. Like cancer and dating way younger.

No matter what they do, they make us laugh. So touch bellies with someone you love and then watch Will & Grace with them for a big ole belly laugh!

Then at 9:30p, I have some great news for you about Great News. Tina Fey goes from behind the camera to in front of it. After the news team screws up beyond belief thanks to Katie’s (Briga Heelan) mom, Carol (Andrea Martin), they get a new boss (Fey). She is a tough no nonsense boss, who wants to change things up. Gone is the traditional newscasts and hello to the one full of opinion and talking heads. Portia (Nicole Richie) is OK with the new format, but Chuck (John Michael Higgins) loses it on air. Will Greg (Adam Campbell) be able to get his anchor team back on track? And what is going on with him and Katie? Carol wants to know to and so do you?

Great News might be fake news, but unlike the real news it is even zanier than what the President watches even though he says he does not. And that says a lot.

Then the night closes out with Chicago Fire on its new night, and we find out who survived the warehouse fire. Did Casey (Jesse Spencer) say I love you to Gabby (Monica Raymund) for the last time? Did Mouch (Christian Stolte) survive his heart attack and the fire? Will Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker) risk the lives of his other firefighters to rescue the ones still inside the fire? All I will say is have the tissues ready. I wish I can tell you more about this episode, but you do not want to know? You want to see it for yourself on the original Chicago show that’s get better with each passing season. That’s right, the show is still on fire. I guess you can say literally!


Lots of good TV to watch!
September 27th, 2017 under ABC, CBS, Dick Wolf, Empire. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Brooke Shields is up to no good on Law & Order: SVU
August 13th, 2017 under Brooke Shields, Dick Wolf. [ Comments: none ]

The good news is that Brooke Shields is going to join Law & Order: SVU as a recurring character. The bad news is The Hollywood Reporter says she will “shake up Benson’s (Mariska Hargitay) world.” What that means we do not know, but the actress says she plays, “I play a very different character from any I have ever played.”

Now I am even more curious what her character will add to the procedural when it returns to NBC on September 27th.


This Is Us back to Tuesdays
May 30th, 2017 under Dick Wolf, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

Two weeks ago, NBC announced their Fall schedule and they said This Is Us was moving to Thursdays at 10p. Then today, they decided to move it back to Tuesdays at 9p. Due to the scheduling change, Chicago Fire gets a new day and time period for the first time in its run. It is moving to Thursdays to 10p. Personally, I think that they should have kept Fire at 10p on Tuesdays and moved Law & Order: True Crime and Chicago Med to Thursdays at 10p. But what do I know, I just watch these TV shows and liked them where they were.

What do you think of the changes? I know ABC and CBS are loving it because now How to Get Away with Murder and SWAT are no longer up against TV’s most buzzed about show. Granted, ABC is probably worried for Black-ish and The Mayor, now that they are up against it. When it comes to Fox, I wonder if they are thinking about switching Lethal Weapon to 9p and The Mick and Brooklyn Nine-Nine to 8p. It seems smarter to have their drama go up against the powerhouse as compared to their comedies. Don’t you agree?


Sophia Bush has left Chicago PD
May 25th, 2017 under Dick Wolf. [ Comments: none ]

Out of all the actors on Chicago PD, the only one whose name I know is Sophia Bush. Now I know none of them because Deadline is reporting she left the show. The season 4 finale hinted she might be leaving and today it was made official. No reason was given, but the article says, “The Chicago P.D. set had been described as a tough environment for a female performer.”

Since the police procedural is not for me and I like her, I cannot wait to see where she winds up next. Personally, I liked when she tried her hand at comedy with Partners. She deserves to be on a show that will treat her with the respect she deserves.

Talking about Dick Wolf dramas, I wonder who if anyone is leaving Chicago Fire and/or Chicago Med because their season finales hinted not everyone might be back. They better not let Oliver Platt leave because he makes that great show even better.
