Poor Dr. Rhodes on Chicago Med. He’s so stressed because of the stuff with Robin at home that things at work are going a bit crazy. Last week, it seemed like he’d made a mistake on a valve transplant, but in the end, it turned out the valve was faulty. It did lead to a great conversation with Dr. Latham, so that was awesome. Meanwhile, Drs. Charles and Reese are still at odds, disagreeing over the way he handled his shooter and the aftermath. It makes things very tense between them constantly.

But the big story lines last week were between April and Dr. Choi as well as Drs. Manning & Halstead. Ethan put April on the spot regarding a test for a long-time patient of hers, which at first looked like it might have done more harm than good. In the end, though, it showed that he had cancer, and it was heartbreaking watching April have to break that news to the man. As for Natalie and Will, their pregnant patient was so fanatical about eating “clean” that she was basically starving her unborn baby. She was 8 months pregnant, but the baby was only measuring 5 months. In the end, to save the mother and baby, they had to deliver the baby, who was small, but they were giving it nutrition to help it grow. It was a touching moment later when Will took Natalie to ride the Ferris wheel after she’d told the pregnant woman that her biggest fear after having her son was heights.

I’m really enjoying this season so far, although I’m already over the fighting between Sarah and Dr. Charles as well as Robin’s health issues.

On tonight’s episode, “Trust Your Gut,” when Goodwin receives financial complaints from the hospital board, she is forced to implement new guidelines that cause headaches for the doctors. Dr. Rhodes and Ava continue to compete in the operating room, while Dr. Charles and Dr. Reese are surprised when they treat a man who has a peculiar theory about his sickness. Dr. Manning and Dr. Choi can’t figure out what is wrong with a young girl, leading them to look to a questionable source for answers.

See what new guidelines Ms. Goodwin is forced to put into play tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, Will & Grace, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chopped.

Tonight, The Middle reaches its landmark 200th episode! Last week Brick had a chance encounter with the new girl at school and decided to make her his before she had the opportunity to meet any other, more normal kids at the school. So he roped Frankie and Mike into helping him with his scheme, which involved a scripted dinner with his parents. His plan worked but also gained the attention of Cindy, who wanted him back. Meanwhile, Axl headed off to stay with Hutch for the weekend but quickly discovered that his best friend had become an adult since he last saw him – he liked to keep his apartment clean and organized and not like a messy dorm room. This gave Axl the wake-up call he needed to realize it was time for him to grow up as well. And finally, Sue was alone for the weekend and made the poor decision to watch a horror movie, leading to her inability to ever fall asleep again.

In its ninth/farewell season, The Middle continues to be a fun and heartwarming show. It’s amazing how much these actors and characters have grown over the years. It’ll be sad to see the series come to an end this year, but it’s great to see the show will do so while continuing to put out great episodes.

On tonight’s episode, “The 200th,” when Orson is named as one of the top 200 most livable cities in Indiana, Frankie is reminded that she has to come up with something to place in the time capsule that will be buried in the base of the newly rededicated Orson Cow. Meanwhile, when Bill Norwood informs Mike that he and Paula are separating, Mike is gobsmacked and starts to appreciate Frankie more; in order to win back Cindy, Brick must complete three acts of bravery for her; and Axl volunteers Sue to be his personal assistant.

To see what Frankie chooses for the time capsule, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Will & Grace, Superstore, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Chrisley Knows Best.
