Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Last week, art imitated life as The Muppets returned from hiatus, and “Up Late with Miss Piggy” was a on a mission to reinvent itself after a new brand executive was hired to try to fix the show (which wasn’t even broken in the first place). This started with making Piggy a little less abrasive and bringing more of the Muppets into the segments of her talk show. The end result for both the ABC series and the show within the show was that they were less focused on serious workplace drama and more geared toward just having fun. The episode ended with Kermit and Piggy singing a sweet duet as Denise watched jealously from the audience – so it looks like that whole publicized break-up may be coming to an end as well.
I never had any issues with the original incarnation of this series. I thought it was a fun, fresh take. I wasn’t really a fan of last week’s episode. It seemed like it was trying a bit too hard to appeal to a younger demographic, with Piggy dressing up like Miley Cyrus and twerking. However, I’m happy to say that they have eased back a bit in tonight’s episode, which I enjoyed a lot more. While I didn’t think the show needed a change – except to bring on Walter; where is he?! – but if these slight tweaks increase viewership and get the series a second season, then I’m all for it.
On tonight’s episode, “A Tail of Two Piggies,” a wardrobe malfunction involving Miss Piggy creates a scandal that could ruin her career, but Kermit and the crew come together to defend her honor. Meanwhile, Pepe and Rizzo throw a party for Gonzo to lift his spirits when he misses his ex-girlfriend.
Check out My Piggy’s wardrobe malfunction tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

It’s been a few weeks since we last got a new episode of NCIS: NOLA, and I’m glad it’s back tonight. Last time, an immigrant Petty Officer was killed, and the killer staged it to look like suicide. Pride’s old colleague/friend Randy Wilson worked at Immigrations, and he turned up to talk to them about the Petty Officer’s death and family. Lasalle promised the victim’s brother that he would help him, and when Wilson turned up to arrest the mother for her part (owning the truck used by the victim) in bringing in illegals, the brother got mad at Lasalle. In the end, it turned out the victim was trying to bring in their younger sister, who’d had to stay because she was too young to make the trip to the US, but she was now in danger so she had to come over illegally. But the team figured out Wilson was dirty and had killed the Petty Officer. They arrested him and got the victim’s sister to the US and her mother out of custody. It was a happy reunion for the family but sad too.And I felt bad for Pride because Wilson turned out to be dirty.
On tonight’s episode, “Father’s Day,” Special Agent Pride opens his bar to the public with a Fat Tuesday party, but the celebration is cut short when he and Mayor Douglas Hamilton (Steven Weber) are both kidnapped from their respective Mardi Gras events and held hostage by an unknown assailant. Lee Tergesen also guest stars.
See how the team can rescue Pride and Hamilton tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hollywood Game Night, NCIS, Team Ninja Warrior, Grandfathered, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chicago Med, Junk Food Flip, The Little Couple, Chicago Fire, Chopped, The Shannara Chronicles, & Rattled.
Chicago Med is a steady favorite of mine now week to week, and it’s not just because the Halstead brothers…but that definitely helps. There’s just something about the intriguing story lines and complex characters that continues to draw me in, leaving me wanting more when the credits roll.
Last week’s episode had quite a few things going on, but the case that really got me was the one that Nat and Will worked on with a young girl who was sick due to a psychological condition. The girl’s father diagnosed her from researching on the Internet for mitochondrial disease but never had a muscle biopsy done to confirm. As the day went on, it appeared that the girl was only really sick when her dad was around, which led Dr. Charles to get involved. He explained that she was using being sick to get attention from her dad after her mom died and also because when he was taking care of her, he didn’t seem so sad. It was a sad case because the father didn’t mean to do anything wrong, but they had his daughter taken into custody by children’s services because he was being accused of medical abuse. After fighting the whole situation, the father finally realized that it was indeed how the doctors said it was, and he was able to visit his daughter under the supervision of Dr. Charles for now. Who knows how long it will take to help this young girl, but I was left feeling emotional when the episode ended because it seemed so unfair that after losing his wife and the girl losing her mother that they would have to go through this separation. This is why I love this show, because it really pulls at my heart regularly and I am left contemplating the future for the patients.
On tonight’s episode, “Choices,” Dr. Halstead jeopardizes his career when he goes against a family’s order regarding a terminally ill cancer patient. Meanwhile, April and Dr. Reese treat a homeless man, and Choi’s personal issues emerge while caring for a bipolar patient.
Find out if Dr. Halstead can keep his job tonight on NBC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching Chicago Fire, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped, Limitless, NCIS: NOLA, The Shannara Chronicles, and iZombie.
