Tonight, the fourth season of the hilarious Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek makes its U.S. debut on Pop. The series follows the misadventures of the self-obsessed Rose family, who suddenly found themselves broke and were forced to leave their lavish life in a mansion and move to the small backwoods town of Schitt’s Creek. Johnny (Eugene Levy) comanages the dingy roadside motel where the Roses now live. Meanwhile, his wife, former soap-star Moira (Catherine O’Hara), is constantly dreaming of returning to their former luxurious lifestyle. The couple’s spoiled twenty-something year-old children, David (Daniel Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy), were forced to make the best of their situation, though not without a lot of complaining. Alexis went back to school to get her high school diploma while also working at the local veterinary office owned by Dr. Ted. Meanwhile, David opened an eclectic shop in town with business partner Patrick. As the third season came to a close, Alexis had decided to quit her job as she prepared to graduate and head to college. Meanwhile, David and Patrick admitted that they had feelings for one another and shared their first kiss.

The new season picks up the following day and doesn’t miss a beat. I had forgotten just how much I loved the Roses, as well as the town’s many other offbeat characters, such as unmotivated motel clerk Stevie (Emily Hampshire, 12 Monkeys) and dimwitted town mayor Roland (Chris Elliott). I look forward to seeing more of Moira and her crazy wigs and misguided attempts at fitting in with the townsfolk; seeing how David balances his business and romantic lives with co-worker Patrick, and how he deals with the demons from his dating past; seeing how Alex deals with college, and if there’s a possibility of a reunion with Dr. Ted; and seeing what kind of craziness at the motel that Johnny and Stevie have to deal with. This show is such a light, fun watch that always leaves me wanting to immediately binge more episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dead Guy in Room 4,” Moira feels responsible for a hotel guest’s death; David and Patrick make their romance official.

See how the hotel guest died and why Moira feels responsible tonight on Pop at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Match Game, The Amazing Race, The X-Files, 9-1-1, Riverdale, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Let’s Get Physical, Waco, The Magicians, Happy!, The Librarians, and Mosaic.

Criminal Minds introduced a new love interest for Luke last week, a beautiful doctor. Bittersweet for me. On one hand, I’d love to see to Luke happy, but on the other hand, there is still a part of me that has been holding on to the hope that Luke and Garcia would end up together. Who knows… Maybe eventually.

Last week’s unsub was truly disturbed and took on television characteristics of a werewolf – even making fake metal teeth, with which he used to tear his victims’ throats out. In the end, we learned he was a very mentally disturbed man who had lost a child and couldn’t get over the loss. It was a very twisted episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Cure,” the BAU is called to investigate a series of D.C. homicides where cryptic messages are found inside the mouths of each victim.

To find out if the team can find this unsub before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race, 9-1-1, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Match Game.
