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, Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race returns for an all-new but abbreviated holiday installment. This time around there’s just five food truck teams that will hit the road to see who has the best combination of culinary skills and salesmanship to win the $50,000 grand prize. And for this holiday race, the teams are headed to my neck of the woods, New England.
The five teams competing include “Big Stuff,” comprised of two professional private chefs who work on yachts and their marketing friend; “Creole Queens.” a married couple from New Orleans along with their friend; “Lia’s Lupima,” an executive chef who started a catering company with his mother, joined by a friend; “Magical Mystery Heroes,” a chef along with his cousin and his cousin’s wife; and “Slap Shot,” a Northern Minnesota culinary student, her sister, and their mother.
Even though it will just be a short, 4-episode season, it should be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to this winter-themed installment of the series.
On tonight’s premiere, “Holiday Hustle: Blizzard Brawl,” five aspiring food truck teams kick off the season in snowy Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Tyler Florence challenges the contestants with naughty and nice holiday ingredients, and they compete for sales while battling the elements in a winter wonderland.
Don’t miss the start of the winter fun tonight on Food Network at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Irishman, Survivor, and Almost Family.

Last week’s SEAL Team was definitely an emotional one. Jason was having pain in his groin/hip/leg area, and he thought he’d just pulled something in his groin, but it turned out he had a tear in…something, maybe in his hip? I dunno. It was hard to follow the name of the injury. But it’s bad enough that he needs surgery, which means he’s out for a few months…if he’s able to come back at all. And boy, did that not sit well with him. It seemed like he was accepting his fate, even going so far as to beginning the check-in process the day of his surgery, but then before he could sign the consent forms that said he wouldn’t blame the doctor if he couldn’t get back on the team after surgery, he began to spiral, set down the paperwork, and walked away. By the time he was home, he was full-on in a panic attack. It was so sad to watch.
As for the rest of the team… With Jason out, that meant Ray was in charge. They were over in Paris helping the Secret Service to guard a security summit that may be attacked. Turned out the underground chatter was correct, and even though they were shot upon by the snipers there to take out some of the bigwigs, Ray made a good call, and they were able to take out the bad guys before any of the summit attendees could be shot at. It was a good learning experience for newbie Vic, too.
As for other personal story lines, Ray and Sonny finally had a conversation, and Sonny learned that Ray hadn’t talked to anyone about Sonny & Lisa, which meant he wasn’t directly responsible for Lisa calling things off. Hopefully that’ll help warm Sonny’s attitude toward Ray again. And Clay attended the ambassador’s funeral (the one from the previous episodes), where he met a young woman who used to work for the ambassador, and they had a natural chemistry and seemed to hit it off. So much so that she sent him a new pair of dress shoes after teasing him at the funeral about that was how she knew he was a special operator with the military, and when he called to thank her, he asked her out. I’m sad that he and Stella aren’t back together, but I’m happy he’s interested in moving on and finding another relationship, unlike Sonny, who is determined to hit-it-and-quit-it with any woman he can in order to keep from getting his heart broken again.
On tonight’s episode, “Danger Crossing,” while Jason is sidelined with an injury, Ray again takes over as Bravo 1 and leads the team on a mission to rescue a marine pilot who was shot down in enemy territory.
See if someone can talk some sense into Jason and how Ray does again as team leader tonight on CBS at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games, The Great Food Truck Race, S.W.A.T.
It was a nice change last episode of S.W.A.T. to see Hicks at the center of the action during a hostage situation, because he is usually sitting back at command just handing out orders. He did a fantastic job of helping get as few casualties and the best outcome for an extremely complicated situation. I hope this will be a more regular thing because Hicks brings experience that no one else has. Elsewhere in the episode, Chris finally made the decision to move out and leave her polyamory relationship because she realized she would never be as important as the bond the other two shared. It was really sweet that Deacon took her into their home, even though he and his wife weren’t very supportive of her relationship to begin with. As much as I like Street with Hicks’s daughter, I want Chris and Street together in the long run because they have always had a strong connection and I think it is one that should be explored.
On tonight’s episode, “Sea Legs,” the SWAT team joins forces with the Los Angeles Organized Crime division to recover an officer abducted during a failed undercover operation. Also, Chris struggles with how to comfort the kidnapped officer’s parents when she is restricted from giving them certain details of the investigation.
Find out if the team can save the kidnapped officer before it’s too late tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching SEAL Team and Guy’s Grocery Games.
