I had a great time in Montreal earlier this week for the annual Syfy Digital Press Tour. We got to visit the sets of Being Human and upcoming series Helix, both of which will air in January. However, those days away mean I’ve now got a huge backlog of shows to catch up on! If you’ve got some free time in your busy TV schedule, we’ve got some suggestions for you to check out tonight.
Tonight, ABC premieres the new series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. This spin-off from the original Once Upon a Time series follows the adventures of Alice in Wonderland. The format is similar to the original show, where we will follow concurrent stories in both the real world and in Wonderland. We will also see characters from other tales and worlds—such as Jafar and Cinderella—collide with the residents of Wonderland. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Once Upon a Time world is expanded and what new stories and characters we will meet in this spin-off.
On tonight’s premiere, “Down the Rabbit Hole,” Alice is taken to an asylum after she shares fanciful tales about a curious place called Wonderland, and the Knave of Hearts saves her before she has an operation.
Get swept away in a fairytale tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Parks and Recreation, Welcome to the Family, Sean Saves the World, The Michael J. Fox Show, Parenthood, Glee, and Childrens Hospital.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
Ratings for last week’s Welcome to the Family weren’t great, but I really liked the premiere. From the slacker girl texting the news that she was pregnant to her valedictorian boyfriend from another school—as he was giving his speech, no less—to the fathers meeting and not getting along at all at one of the men’s gym, to the families spending time together after the kids announced they were getting married, whether the parents approved or not, to the new momma’s mother finding out she’s also pregnant, it kept me entertained. I love Molly and Junior, as well as Lisette and Katrina, but Dan and Miguel were great. If you didn’t watch the premiere or aren’t sure about the show yet, give it a chance with another ep.
On tonight’s episode, “Dan Finds Out,” Caroline heads to the doctor to confirm her suspicions, but when she encounters Molly and Junior in the same waiting room, things get a little awkward. Then, as Junior decides to invite his parents to the first sonogram, things get even more awkward. When Caroline later learns she is indeed pregnant, she struggles with the best way to break the news to Dan, who has been happily anticipating an empty nest. Meanwhile, Dan returns to Miguel’s boxing gym to get back into shape, and it doesn’t go well.
Find out if this new family can actually learn to work together tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, The Michael J. Fox Show, Two and a Half Men (WHY do I keep watching this?!), & Elementary.
How does one say goodbye to someone they love? It’s such a hard journey, so grab your kleenex and get ready to grieve with the cast of Glee. Tonight, we are going to bid farewell to Finn Hudson: brother, boyfriend, friend, leader, and fan favorite. Cory Monteith passed away tragically this past summer, and his passing has left an ache in all of our hearts. I’m not sure how I’m going to handle this episode, but whatever happens, I’m sure they will bid a beautiful farewell to a fabulous young actor and his character.
On tonight’s episode, “The Quarterback,” the group gathers to commemorate Finn Hudson, played by the late Cory Monteith.
To say goodbye with the cast, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, The Michael J. Fox Show, and The Vampire Diaries.
