What do we think you should be watching each night? Find out!

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/1/22

The Rookie: Feds has been bringing the laughs while still providing the cases we have come to love from this franchise. Simone is the powerful female agent we didn’t know we needed but are glad she’s here. I love that on the last episode her father defended her relationship with her girlfriend. It May have been a little aggressive but I applaud the writers for taking such a clear stance on how haters need to be dealt with. If you haven’t watched this show yet then get with the program because this show is more than worth it!

On tonight’s episode, “The Reaper,” When Simone and Carter go undercover to find an international assassin known as The Reaper, a prisoner seeking bail recognizes Carter and nearly blows his cover. Laura and Brendon trace a lead on The Reaper’s assault rifle while Brendon works to heal his relationship with his father. Meanwhile, Simone’s demanding work schedule puts a strain on her relationship with Dina.

Tune into ABC at 10/9c and see if Simone can learn to balance work and personal life.

I’ll also be watching The Voice and New Amsterdam.

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!

It has been an eventful season so far on The Rookie, and it has kept us on the edge of our seats. Rosalind locked Bailey in a steel tube under the floor of an abandoned house that was almost impossible to open without killing her. The tube was gradually filling with water, and Rosalind gave Nolan the choice to come to her to let Bailey live. Rosalind wanted Nolan to kill her and she’d spare Bailey’s life, but Nolan couldn’t do it. He was just too noble. Anticipating his Boy Scout ways, Rosalind made a backup plan and her sidekick shot her in the head as Nolan was taking her out in handcuffs. I was happy she was dead. She really doesn’t deserve anything less. Nolan felt terrible because he was sure Bailey was dead, but the team had saved her and they were reunited. All karma aside, Nolan wouldn’t be Nolan if he had shot Rosalind. Going forward, I see the writers making him struggle with his choice but he’ll come through it. He always does.

On tonight’s episode, “The Reckoning,” Officer John Nolan and a sleep-deprived Celina investigate a cash deposit linked to an old DEA case. Meanwhile, Wesley grows increasingly concerned about his deposition and is shocked when he realizes Elijah’s attorney is a familiar face from his past.

To see how this cold case pans out, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, East New York, and Halloween Wars.

Ghosts has become one of my all-time favorite comedies. Every episode has me in stitches. Not only that, but I love to see the relationships developing between the ghosts and each other, as well as with Sam and Jay. Last week was great, when Jay befriended a group that turned out to be a cult. Of course Flower was the one who figured it out first. LOL And while Trevor was all for letting the cult hang around because of the hot girl, in the end, the ghosts all helped Sam figure out how to drive the interloper cultists out of the B&B. Meanwhile, the B story had to do with Pete changing into emo-angry-black-cloud-Pete after Sasappis told him he was tired of Pete always being happy-happy-joy-joy. It was funny but so weird not getting Pete’s cheery disposition.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tree,” Sasappis convinces Sam and Jay to try and save an old tree on the Woodstone property that the neighbors want to cut down. Also, Thor attempts to become more environmentally friendly to get Flower’s attention.

To see if Flower notices Thor, tune in to CBS at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching Hell’s Kitchen, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, So Help Me Todd, Alaska Daily, CSI: Vegas, & Law & Order: OC.

Last week’s The Goldbergs was pretty funny and sweet—something the show is known for. Barry decided that since their dad was gone, he was going to be the man of the house, and that meant treating Adam like a father. Not THEIR father, mind you, since Murray was a bit of a different, uninvolved, father most of the time. Barry basically smothered him with too much attention and affection, including giving him a book about his “changing body.” It was hilarious. Erica’s story line was a little less funny but ended on a sweet note. She graduated early from school, having worked super hard to finish before the baby comes. But when all anyone could focus on was the baby and baby shower, she was sad and disappointed. In the end, when she reminded everyone, you could tell they felt bad about it, and they finally gave her the congratulations and attention she deserved.

On tonight’s episode, “Uncle-ing,” with her due date approaching, Erica is over the exhausting pregnancy and demands a “babymoon.” When things take an unforeseen turn, Geoff is tasked with producing the one person Erica needs more than anyone. Meanwhile, Adam and Barry seek out advice on “uncle-ing” from some unexpected sources.

Find out who Erica needs (my guess is Beverly…) tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, Survivor, The Conners, Chicago Fire, Guy’s Ultimate Game Night, Chicago PD, & The Amazing Race.

Megan’s busy at work, so I’m going to do her pick and mine. The FBI franchise is always a lot of fun to watch, so I’m going all out and recommending the entire lineup for tonight. Last week featured some exciting episodes. OA was mugged, and he was too embarrassed and ashamed to admit it, which led to the couple doing it to others, nearly killing a man. The Fly Team broke a US spy out of jail in Istanbul after being arrested by crooked cops. (That was exciting!) And Remy and his team found themselves in the middle of a treasure hunt for Civil War gold!

On tonight’s FBI, “Flopped Cop,” when a wealthy accountant is gunned down for secretly testifying against a notorious drug lord, the team’s investigation leads Tiffany to ask for help from a friend who was formerly with the NYPD and is related to the dangerous crime boss.

On tonight’s FBI: International, “Yesterday’s Miracle,” the Fly Team searches Bucharest for a Romanian surrogate who goes missing shortly before carrying the biological child of an American couple to term. Also, Forrester’s concern about the safety of his neighbors in Budapest intensifies.

On tonight’s FBI: Most Wanted, “Chains,” after Hana is kidnapped while trying to help a young girl (guest star Dalya Knapp, EVIL) in peril at a rest stop that’s on the way to her sister’s house in Connecticut, Remy and the team pull out all the stops to find her.

Watch all the action tonight on CBS starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Chopped, Bobby’s Triple Threat, Professionals, Outchef’d, & The Rookie: Feds.
