I’m really enjoying the new season of NCIS: Hawai’i. Granted, it’s only been one episode aside from the premiere, but last week’s ep was pretty good. The team had to learn more about illegal street racing when a Marine staff sergeant’s body was found in a car being crushed in a junkyard. The killer turned out to be what felt like (to me, at least) the least likely suspect. On a personal note, Tennant knew her son was hiding something, and it turned out he was—a new girlfriend. It was the first time he hadn’t come to her with that kind of news, and she realized she would just have to be patient. Also, Whistler was ready to introduce Lucy to her coworkers, but when her boss assumed that Whistler’s partner was a male, she worried how they’d take the news that he was a she. Turned out she didn’t need to worry. Lucy and their relationship were welcomed with open arms at the company picnic.

On tonight’s episode, “Stolen Valor,” Tennant and the NCIS team suspect foul play when they investigate a fatal car crash involving a Navy officer who turns out to be an imposter. Also, Whistler finds herself in danger when she goes undercover to learn the truth behind the accident.

To see if Whistler comes out unscathed, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

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

Last week’s Chicago PD premiere was tense for most of the episode. The premiere picked up only a couple weeks after last season’s finale, where Hailey was forced to shoot Anna, killing her. Hailey and Jay were super concerned about Voight, who had been basically a one-man unit to get drugs and the dealers off the streets in that neighborhood, and it came to a head when Voight spoke to them alone, reiterating that he was fine and that if they didn’t knock it off and stop letting it affect the job, the three of them wouldn’t be able to work together anymore. Since Jesse Lee Sofer (Jay Halstead) is leaving this season, you have to wonder if it ties in to everything going on… On a sad but good note, the new chief got Anna’s payment pushed through, and her son will be receiving nearly half a million dollars for her undercover work. Small consolation for losing his mother, but still…

On tonight’s episode, “The Real You,” when a convicted murderer hijacks a prison van, the team scrambles to find him and the abducted prison guard before it’s too late. Burgess questions Ruzek’s motives in a case, creating tension between the two.

See if Intelligence can find the murderer and abducted guard on time and if Burgess and Ruzek can get past their issues tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, The Conners, Survivor, The Goldbergs, Chicago Fire, Guy’s Ultimate Game Night, The Amazing Race, & No-Recipe Road Trip with The Try Guys.

It has been a great week so far getting back to the normal seasons of all our favorite shows, but it’s also been a joy to be back to suggesting shows we think you should be watching. Today is my last day for the week because so far, nothing has returned on Fridays that’s piqued my interest, but I’m sure that will change quickly.

My recommendation today is a group of three shows, Law & Order: Organized Crime, Law & Order: SVU, and Law & Order . This is not only because it’s a crossover event, but also because you should be watching all of this franchise if you aren’t already. I will say that just like other TV franchises, I have a favorite member of the group. For me, it is SVU. I’m aware it deals with the darkest subjects, but I also cannot help but love this cast. I am terribly upset that Rollins is leaving, especially seeing as though she and Carisi have been on a great track with their relationship. Personally, if she’s going to leave, I think it should be a reason that’s sweet, such as she’s having Carisi’s baby and wants to get out of the crime-fighting life. I just feel like those two deserve their happy ending. You all know I am a sucker for the relationships on these procedurals. It’s a huge part of why I tune in.

No matter the reason you watch the Law & Order shows, tonight’s 3-part crossover is going to keep you on the edge of your seat.

On tonight’s 3-part crossover, “Gimme Shelter,” a young girl is shot and Cosgrove teams with Det. Jalen Shaw to track down her killer. Benson and Stabler assist and realize it’s more than a typical homicide. McCoy and Price seek justice against an international crime ring, but complications threaten the case.

Tune into NBC starting at 8/7c to go on this crazy ride with all of your favorite crime-fighting Law & Order teams.

I’ll also be watching Celebrity Family Feud.

I’m so excited to have #OneChicago back tonight! Last season ended for all three shows on a tense note, but especially exciting and dangerous were Chicago Med and Chicago Fire, so those are my two picks tonight.

On Chicago Med, after a disagreement about a patient, Will & Hannah decided to start over, and knowing she was looking for an apartment, he offered to let her rent one in his new building. Little did they know that the building would be on fire only hours later. Which leads us to Dylan and undercover cop Jo. She knew her cover had been blown, so she was preparing to leave town, and when she gave Dylan the evidence she collected to give his father because she thinks there’s a dirty cop involved in her investigation, we learned she’d been staying in Will’s apartment building. That’s when Will interrupted them to tell them the building was on fire. Unfortunately, one of the bad guys from her case appeared, and after a struggle with his gun, Dylan ended up shooting him. Jo was hurt, and Dylan told her to run, but before he and Will could get the man Dylan shot out of the building to safety, they were trapped by the fire. The rest of the Med gang had big stories too. Crockett was given Pamela’s power of attorney, and when there was a complication during her surgery, he made the call he thought was right, against Pamela’s daughter’s wishes and what she thought her mother would want, and she had a stroke during the surgery. When she woke up, she was very, very angry and upset about Crockett’s decision. Also, Dr. Charles realized that dating his (former) therapist was a bad idea and broke up with her, Maggie finally set up a meeting between Vanessa and her birth father, Goodwin ended up delivering her grandbaby when her daughter went into labor during their lunch and there was no way to get her to the hospital, and Ethan and Dean attended a ceremony honoring his late-father’s military service. Ethan gave the flag he received to his father’s partner, and Dean got all up in his feels and decided to reach out to his own kid.

Then on the Chicago Fire finale, we got rid of that horrid witch Emma after she abandoned Violet on a dangerous call and was fired by Hawkins fired her. Later, Kidd & Severide FINALLY tied the knot, and it was absolutely lovely, between having to find a new venue (and the riverboat turned out to be perfect!) and having all their friends and (most of) their family there. We even got to see a sweet message from Severide’s mom, who was unable to make it, but not through any fault of hers. Unfortunately, Brett and Casey, who were super adorable, clearly weren’t as happy, each knowing that the relationship they currently had couldn’t be expected to last much longer, being so far apart and only seeing each other occasionally. I don’t know when they’ll officially pull the plug, but Brett’s not going anywhere and Casey isn’t coming back, so it’s likely happening sometime soon. Once the reception was over, Kidd & Severide went to his cabin for their honeymoon, but we saw a truck pull up outside, and every indication was that it was tied to the guys who Severide was up against. Eek!

So yes, both series had strong finales with huge cliff hangers, and I can’t wait to see how they play out tonight!

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Med, “How Do You Begin to Count the Losses,” i n the aftermath of Will’s apartment fire, Crockett, Ethan and Archer work together to try and save the survivors. Charles and Med’s new fellow, Nellie, helps a paranoid patient. Dylan makes a life-changing decision.

Then on Chicago Fire, “Hold On Tight,” Kidd and Severide’s honeymoon is interrupted by a dangerous person from their past. Kidd’s former academy classmate joins Firehouse 51. Brett and Violet reflect on their relationships.

See how the story lines are resolved tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Conners, The Goldbergs, Guy’s Ultimate Game Night, & No-Recipe Road Trip with The Try Guys.

Tonight is the series premiere of Quantum Leap, and I can’t be more excited. This is a continuation (NOT a reboot) of the original series starring Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett. When that series ended, Sam stepped in the accelerator and vanished. Unfortunately, Scott Bakula isn’t back for the new series, but taking up the helm as the new “leaper” is Raymond Lee as physicist Ben Song. He is leading a new team that’s been assembled to restart the project, but everything changes when he makes an unauthorized leap into 1985, which leaves the team behind to solve the mystery of why he did it.

In the original series, Dean Stockwell played Sam’s best friend Al, who appeared to Sam as a hologram and helped him research and guide him throughout the leaps into the past. That actor passed away in 2021, but the new “Al” is Addison, played by Caitlin Bassett. Just like Al, she appears to Ben as a hologram, and she is sent to find him. Also starring are Mason Alexander Park as Ian Wright, who runs the Aritificial Intelligence unit “Ziggy”; Nanrisa Lee as Jenn Chou, who heads up digital security for the project; and Ernie Hudson, who plays Herbert “Magic” Williams, a Vietnam vet and leader of the operation. What’s significant about “Magic” Williams is that in the original series, Sam leaped back to the Vietnam War to be with his brother, and the body he leapt into? Herbert Williams! The character was played by a different actor then, but the character himself is the same as the man Sam leapt into back in the original series. Very cool trivia tidbit, right??

I’ve watched the trailer, and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. There’s SO MUCH to play with because so much has changed in the last 30 years. I can’t wait to take a leap back into the past with Ben, and I’m crossing my fingers they do justice to the fantastic original series.

On tonight’s episode, “July 13, 1985,” a new team assembles to restart the Quantum Leap project. Lead physicist Ben Song takes an unauthorized leap into 1985 as the team scrambles to figure out what happened and how to get him back.

Don’t miss the series premiere of Quantum Leap tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Bäckström, Dancing with the Stars (and only because Wayne Brady is in it this season!), Bob Hearts Abishola, Halloween Baking Championship, NCIS, & NCIS: Hawai’i.
