Tonight, TBS kicks off the second season of the dark comedy, Search Party. In the first season, New Yorker Dory (Alia Shawkat, Arrested Development) came across a missing persons flyer for former classmate Chantal Witherbottom. Dory didn’t know Chantal very well, but she quickly made it her mission to find out what happened to the young woman and enlisted the help of her friends. Most of Dory’s friends are a bit self-absorbed and narcissistic, and they don’t understand why Dory has become obsessed with Chantal, but they helped her out anyway. At the end of the first season, this makeshift Scooby Gang had managed to track down the place in Montreal where Chantal was staying. In a moment of confusion, Dory’s boyfriend Drew (John Reynolds, Stranger Things) whacked private eye Keith on the head with a candlestick, killing him. When Elliot (John Early, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp) saw what happened, he told them not to call the police. As they tried to clean things up and hide the body, Portia arrived with a happy and healthy Chantal – her disappearance had just been a misunderstanding all along!

As the second season opens, Dory, Elliot, and Drew must deal with the body hiding in the closet before the others discover what happened. Will they get caught? How will they dispose of the body, and how will they cover their tracks? Now that Chantal is no longer missing, will this group find a new mystery to try to solve, or will they just get back to their old self-absorbed lives is New York City? I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere – who knew covering up a murder could be so funny?!

On the first half of tonight’s double-episode premiere, “Murder!” after finding Chantal and killing the not-so-villainous Keith, the gang is faced with the horrifying task of trying to bury a body before the sun comes up. Then, in “Conspiracy,” the gang goes on a mission to cover up Keith’s semi-accidental murder and return Chantal to her family, with just a few major roadblocks along the way.

Check out the first two episodes of the season tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Good Behavior, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and SMILF.

NCIS: LA has been fantastic this year so far, but I am really missing Hetty being in the office. It isn’t a usual day for the team without her around, and I wish the team would hurry up and rescue her. It’s amazing that this show is celebrating its 200th episode tonight, and I am super happy it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Last week, Kensi was brought in on a secret, super scary emergency – a small group of men and women in the Navy had taken over two nuclear missile silos during their scheduled shifts in the bunkers, and they were getting everything ready to launch 50+ missiles. Their goal was to take out every Muslim overseas, thereby “ending terrorism forever” according to what the team finally learned. Of course it came down to Kensi being the only one who could stop it, and that meant putting herself right in the middle of the danger, so much so that she called Deeks to say goodbye. It was heartbreaking watching them on that phone call, and their conversation after, when Kensi was home safe, makes you wonder how much longer one or both will be on the show…

On tonight’s episode, “This Is What We Do,” the NCIS team must locate a group of unknown assailants who illegally crossed the border and attacked California Highway Patrol officers. Also, Homeland Security sends over Specialist Sydney Jones, Nell’s older and bossy sister, to assist NCIS with the case.

To watch how the Jones sisters work together, tune in to CBS at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching Wisdom of the Crowd, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Guy’s Big Project.
