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!
Tonight, TBS kicks off the new comedy series The Detour with back-to-back episodes. The series was created by husband and wife team/former The Daily Show correspondents Samantha Bee and Jason Jones. Nate Parker (Jason Jones) is having some financial troubles and problems at work that he wants to keep secret from his wife Robin (Natalie Zea, Justified). So he decides to secretly change the family’s vacation plans. Instead of flying from Upstate New York to Florida, they will now be taking a 17-hour road trip instead. But along the way, everything that can go wrong does, and this leads to a lot of wacky misadventures for the Parker family.
The Parkers get into some really crazy situations, but the humor tends more toward sophomoric and gross-out (this is probably not a show to watch with the kids around), but tonight’s premiere episodes had me laughing out loud throughout. The series is like National Lampoon’s Vacation meets The Hangover – the first episode sets up a framing device around the trip that will likely be revisited toward the end of the season. Jason Jones and Natalie Zea have great chemistry and play well off one another. However, the two kids – 14-year-old daughter Delilah (Ashley Gerasimovich) and her dimwitted younger brother Jared (Liam Carroll) – are absolutely hilarious and often steal the scenes. I’m really looking forward to checking out more episodes, and the great news is that the series has already been picked up for a second season, so there’s a lot more to come.
On tonight’s first episode, “The Pilot,” a family begins their vacation drive from New York to Florida. And then in “The Hotel,” the Parkers are forced to stay overnight at a motel when their van needs to be repaired.
Meet the Parkers tonight on TBS at 9/8c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 9:30/8:30c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Castle, Blindspot, Gotham, Lucifer, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Bates Motel, The Magicians, Hunters, and Better Call Saul.

On the last episode, the team was assigned to security duty at a summit involving Japan, South Korea, and other Asian countries and ended up needing to help find a mole. After much speculation, they found out that a man working for South Korea was actually a double agent for North Korea, but he was desperately trying to free himself from the North. When he did try to leave, he was relentlessly hunted, but the team saved him and he was able to go on to live his life with the woman he fell in love with. It was an action-packed episode that kept me guessing the whole time.
On tonight’s episode, “Head of the Snake,” after Operational Psychologist Nate Getz
fails to check in with Hetty while working undercover on a mission linking organized crime to terrorism, the team learns he is working with an infamous crime leader.
Find out if the team can find Nate before it’s too late tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching Lucifer, The Voice, Supergirl, Scorpion, Blindspot, and Hunters.
