I’m so happy with the final two teams on My Kitchen Rules. From the beginning, Lance and Diane & Dice and Valerie have been my favorites. Neither team has bagged on the others, scored them low just to save themselves, or been anything but good competitors. Last week, the final three teams had to cook two dishes for the judges as well as a few of the LA Rams, their cheerleaders, and their fans. I was happy when Brandi and Dean were sent home after their dishes had the lowest combined scores (by quite a bit, actually). In the end, I’m torn about who I want to win. Lance and Diane have been fantastic the entire competition, but considering Val has had to do pretty much every bit of the work herself because Dice wasn’t actually much help in the kitchen, I almost feel like she deserves it more. Overall, I think I’ll be happy with whoever wins.

On tonight’s episode, “Champion is Crowned,” mother-son duo Lance and Diane face off against Andrew Dice Clay and wife Valerie. The final showdown puts both teams to the test with their biggest challenge yet, as they are asked to prepare a four-course meal for a panel of six world-renowned chefs, along with all of their former contestants. Lance and Diane take an early lead, while Dice and Valerie turn up the heat as the night goes on. In the end, the teams are neck and neck, but only one team will walk away as the first winners.

Find out who wins tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, Chicago Med, Top Chef, Beat Bobby Flay, & Impractical Jokers.

Tonight, A&E’s docu-series, 60 Days In, returns for a third season. Each season regular law-abiding people are sent into a prison for 2 months to pose as inmates to help those in charge uncover issues and corruption within the prison system. A documentary crew interviews the inmates, while cameras inside the prison cells capture all the drama. Even the guards have no idea that some of the prisoners are plants – and the civilians aren’t aware that some of their fellow inmates are also part of the program. The first two seasons took place in Indiana, but at the end of the second season, the details of the program were revealed to the entire prison staff, so this season the series heads to a new location, Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail.

I really enjoyed the first two seasons and found it amazing that people would actually volunteer to put their comfort and lives in danger to do this. Some of the past volunteers have been aspiring police or correctional officers, while others sought to better understand what their incarcerated relatives were going through. I’m really interested to meet the latest crop of volunteers and learn what their motivations are. I’m also curious as to when this season was filmed – if folks are already aware of the TV series, that would make this program so much riskier for the participants!

On tonight’s season premiere, Colonel Mark Adger selects undercover volunteers to infiltrate Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail in an attempt to find solutions to contraband, drug smuggling, and gang violence in the facility.

Meet the volunteers in Atlanta tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Blacklist: Redemption, MasterChef: Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Riverdale, Top Chef, and Colony.

The #OneChicago franchise has been really hitting a lot of home runs lately, and Chicago Med is a huge part of that. Week after week it continues to bring us great medical drama combined with a fantastic cast as well as excellent writing. I’m loving the way the relationship between Manning and Halstead is progressing to where it’s bound to be more than friends sooner than later. Reese has been doubting her place in the psychology field, and I’m not sure how much longer she can handle it. Time will tell how this goes and where the next few episodes bring our favorite doctors.

On tonight’s episode, “Lose Yourself,” it’s a miracle when a trauma patient survives the trip to the hospital, putting the pressure on Dr. Rhodes to keep the man alive. Dr. Choi and Dr. Manning have difficulty diagnosing the location of infection in a paralyzed patient. Dr. Reese must find purpose for a grieving widower who relies on a superhero costume. Meanwhile, April pushes Dr. Halstead to use unproved medications to help a patient with no other options.

Find out how far Halstead will go to keep this patient alive tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef: Junior, MasterChef Canada (airing in Canada, not the US), The Voice, When We Rise, Training Day, and Beat Bobby Flay.
