The Rookie has been one of my favorites since it premiered, so I am super excited about the new spinoff, The Rookie: Feds. Niecy Nash is hilarious, and when she had a guest appearance on the original, she was super entertaining and really made me want to keep watching her. She makes a fantastic FBI agent, and I love the fact that the franchise is branching off to bring us some more comedic crime fighting.

On tonight’s episode, “Day One,” fresh out of the FBI Academy, Simone Clark arrives in Los Angeles and has her sights set on joining Matthew Garza’s newly formed special unit as they investigate the murder of a federal engineer. Garza’s squad includes Carter Hope, a promotion-hungry traditionalist, Laura Stenson, a talented agent in desperate need of a second chance, and Brendon Acres, a former actor who graduated from Quantico with Simone. On the home front, Simone and Cutty’s father-daughter relationship is put to the test as their opposing opinions about law enforcement come to a head.

Find out how Simone does in Los Angeles tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching FBI, The Voice, The Resident, FBI: International, FBI: Most Wanted, and New Amsterdam.

It was a great week of premieres, but they’re far from over! If you’ve been around for any length of time, you know how much I love my Food Network and cooking/baking competition shows. Tonight’s premiere of Halloween Cookie Challenge is going to be no exception, especially given the host!

Jet Tila (LOVE him on shows like Guy’s Grocery Games & Cutthroat Kitchen) and YouTube baker Rosanna Pansino host and judge this new cookie baking competition. Five crafty bakers compete to deliver on the ultimate treat and prove their cookie-making skills by decorating decadent and show-stopping Halloween cookie creations for the ultimate prize: the title of Halloween Cookie Champion!

On tonight’s episode, “Cute, Creepy and Spellbound,” four talented cookie makers swap good and evil with their cute and creepy Halloween cookie characters. Then, the cookiers use their most deviously delicious recipes to craft 3D ancient spell books with the right amount of black magic from ingredients like black cherries, black tea, black sesame seeds and blackberries.

Don’t miss the fun premiere tonight on Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Dancing with the Stars, Bob Hearts Abishola, Halloween Baking Championship, NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i, & Quantum Leap.

I’m super excited about tonight’s premiere of Tournament of Champions on Food Network. Sixteen of the nation’s most celebrated chefs face off in a five-episode tournament where their skills will be pushed to the limited as they go head-to-head in a single elimination bracket-style competition, where a randomizer machine determines the protein, produce, equipment, cooking style, and time for each cook-off. Can you imagine? It’ll really take it down to the skills of each chef, rather than give them a leg up if they got to choose whatever it takes to show off their best assets.

It’s hosted by Guy Fieri and features some of my favorite chefs from not only Food Network but also shows like Top Chef. Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli (my top pick to win), Antonio Lofaso, Brooke Williamson, Richard Blaiz, Jet Tila, Michael Voltaggio, and Amanda Freitag are my favorites, but there are a bunch more who I love and are great chefs. Don’t miss it tonight to see who will be competing!

On tonight’s 90-minute series premiere, “The Tournament Begins,” Guy greets 16 of the best chefs in the world to the most intense culinary competition ever.

Catch this new fun show from the beginning tonight on Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Guy’s Grocery Games, SEAL Team, 68 Whiskey, Chicago PD, S.W.A.T., & Stumptown.

I’m like most people… I love love love Girl Scout cookies. I also love Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother), so when I heard there was a new show on Food Network called Girl Scout Cookie Championship, hosted by Alyson and judged by another fave of mine, Katie Lee, as well as Nacho Aguirre (from Spring Baking Championship) and a rotating panel of guest judges (like Carla Hall, yay!), I jumped on it. During each episode, five bakers transform Girl Scout cookies into show-stopping edibles pieces of art. The results include a giant double barrel toasted marshmallow cake made with Girl Scout S’mores, a ten-layer Do-si-do/Peanut Butter Sandwich red velvet globe cake complete with peanut butter buttercream, and Thin Mints transformed into a three-tiered blueberry mint glacier cake.

On tonight’s episode, “Galactic Transformations,” five professional bakers transform iconic Girl Scout Cookies into dozens of cookie pops inspired by outer space.

To see how the bakers showcase Girl Scout cookies and outer space, tune in to Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching 9-1-1: Lone Star, Bob Hearts Abishola, Kids Baking Championship, Prodigal Son, Chopped, & Spy Games.

I’ve been kind of burned out on Worst Cooks in America (& the celeb version). But the new season starting tonight brings in Alton Brown against Anne Burrell, and this is a matchup I have to see. Each will lead a team of “worst cook” recruits through a culinary boot camp to find the best of the worst and will then pit them against each other in a final challenge, cooking for a panel of culinary judges, in order to win $25,000 for themselves and bragging rights for their team leader.

Out of all the rival chefs paired against Anne, Alton Brown matches her in terms of attitude, and he’s got the chops to take his team to the win. We’ll see if I’m right or not when the season premieres tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Bottom’s Up,” sixteen of the worst cooks in America enter boot camp with dreams of putting their kitchen nightmares behind them; Anne Burrell and Alton Brown ask the recruits to make a baseline dish and the results are truly disastrous.

Meet the new recruits and see Alton’s premiere tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA & Beat Bobby Flay.
