parksandrec113smallTonight, Parks and Recreation returns for its seventh and final season. Last year, the series jumped forward 3 years for the last few minutes of the season finale. We learned that Leslie was successful in setting up the National Parks Service Midwest office in Pawnee, and it seems like she has a huge staff. We saw her fire one employee (played by Jon Hamm) and learned that Larry, formerly Jerry—and now going by Terry—still works for Leslie. Ben was dressed in a tuxedo, prepared to go to some big meeting (what could it be?!). And April and Andy (whose arm was in a cast) were going to be babysitting Ben and Leslie’s triplets.

Where are Ron, Donna, and Tom? Do they still work with Leslie, for the town of Pawnee, or are they off on their own new adventures? What are April and Andy up to, and are they planning to have any kids of their own? Will we see more of Jon Hamm’s character? It will be interesting to see how the series handles being in the future and what kind of predictions they make about it. I’m excited for but also a little sad that we are heading into the final 13 episodes of the series. This show is always hilarious, and I’m really going to miss it once it’s gone—which won’t be long from now, as NBC will be airing a double-dose of episodes each week!

On tonight’s premiere, “2017,” Leslie enters into a competition with the tech company Gryzzl for a large parcel of land, which she wants to turn into a national park. Meanwhile, April and Andy try to become more spontaneous; and Ben is honored with a speech by Tom at a Bicentennial Gala. Then, in “Ron and Jammy,” Leslie and Ron come together to help their old foe Jeremy Jamm escape the diabolical Tammy 2’s clutches. Meanwhile, Ben makes it his mission to find April’s true passion in life; and Andy travels with Tom to Chicago.

Catch up with some of your favorite characters tonight on NBC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Face Off, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Forever, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Switched at Birth, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Cougar Town, and Kroll Show.

mafsthefirstyearsmallI wasn’t sure at first if I’d like FYI’s Married at First Sight, but it ended up being a fun show. The premise? Three men and three women were matched with one another using a variety of factors, paired up by a sexologist, spiritualist, psychologist, and sociologist. The couples didn’t see or meet each other until she walked down the aisle and met him at the alter. After six weeks, the couples had to make a decision: did they want to remain married or get a divorce? In the season finale, we learned that two of the couples had fallen in love and chose to remain married, while the third planned to get a divorce.

On the heels of that show is this new show, Married at First Sight: The First Year. Viewers will see Jamie and Doug, and Cortney and Jason, continue their journey from the six-month mark of marriage to their March 2015 one-year anniversary. We’ll see many “firsts,” including holidays and birthdays and moving into new homes. They’ll also get guidance from the sexologist, psychologist, and sociologist. The series will also check in with the couple who chose not to stay together, Monet and Vaughn. I can’t wait to see how the two couples are doing and where they are in their relationships!

On tonight’s episode, “Family Past and Present,” Jason and Cortney deal with the loss of his Mom. Jamie and Doug are excited to move to New Jersey but are surprised by an unwelcome family member. Monet, having recently divorced Vaughn, is searching for her path.

To see how the couples are doing, tune in to FYI at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, NCIS, Kate Plus 8, NCIS: NOLA, Chopped, Forever, Ground Floor, Hotel Showdown, Person of Interest, Restaurant Redemption, Restaurant Startup, & Cougar Town.
