Tonight is the series premiere of a fun new show on FOX called Ultimate Tag. It is exactly what you’d think: a great big exciting game of tag – crossed with the show from 2007/2008, American Gladiators. Six contestants (three men, three women), all athletes, military, martial artists, etc, compete against a group of “taggers” with names like The Flow, La Flair, Spitfire, Iron Giantress, Flame, Caveman, Big Deal, and more. Most of the taggers are free runners or experts in parkour. The course is three-dimensional, so the contestants and taggers must run, jump, slide, climb…basically do whatever they need to do to beat the clock and each other.

Kyle didn’t really enjoy the screener, but I thought it was a lot of fun. The names are silly (I loved American Gladiators, and I feel like most of the names were better on there…), but the action is fun, and the hosts (the pro-football-playing Watt brothers, JJ, TJ, & Derek) were good as well. I’m looking forward to seeing more.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on FOX at 9:02/8:02c.

I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games & S.W.A.T.

On last week’s episode of The Magicians, Alice used dark magic to bring Quentin back in golem form in hopes that he would be able to translate the document she had found. However, things didn’t quite go as planned, and Q came back as the 12-year-old version of himself, unable to read the document. Julia immediately recognized her childhood friend and was upset at Alice for using dark magic to bring him back. However, Quentin’s visit was short-lived. He was only there to help Alice properly say goodbye to Q and then vanish.

In Fillory, Margo was locked in a magic-proof cell with no way to get out. However, earlier Eliot had come across Jane Chatwin’s cabin, where he obtained three magical stamps that could be delivered to anyone, anywhere, at any time. So after a couple misfires, they used the stamps to warn Josh, and he, Fen, Tick, and some others managed to transport themselves ahead 300 years and avoid being executed. Now they have to put together a plan to take back the kingdom.

Meanwhile, Kady was in New York City with Pete. They were supposed to be trying to track down who stole the book deposit from the Library, but instead Kady was at a hedge witch bar, where she met and went home with a guy. When she woke up, her memory had been wiped and she had a massive hangover…even though she hadn’t been drinking. The guy she was with also didn’t remember anything. So Penny used a spell to help see what went on the previous night. They soon discovered that her one-night stand was some kind of Manchurian Candidate sleeper agent. He once again activated and attacked Kady. But before she could get him to reveal who he was working for, the man killed himself.

As the episode came to a close, we discovered that Eliot had lied about using the second stamp, so there was still one left, and Eliot held an envelope addressed to “Quentin Coldwater Before He Went To the Seam.”

Who sent the sleeper agents to wipe Pete’s and Kady’s memories and why? And what did they want with the stuff they had stolen? Will Alice finally accept the Library’s offer to be the new Librarian? Will Margo, Eliot, and the others be able to defeat the Dark King and take back their kingdom? Will Eliot mail his letter to Quentin? And will we ever see Q again? The latter seems unlikely, as the producers seem adamant that Jason Ralph isn’t returning, but I wouldn’t put it past these showrunners to work the long con.

On tonight’s episode episode, “The Mountain of Ghosts,” Eliot and Alice go for a hike; Fen gets a haircut.

See why Fen’s haircut is important tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Schooled, Single Parents, Riverdale, Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, Party of Five, and 68 Whiskey.

Last week on SEAL Team, it was clear Jason was well on the mend after his surgery. Not only was he walking and running without a hitch in his stride, but he was also hitting on and then kissing Natalie. I kinda like them together, but I’m not yet sure if that’s good or bad for Jason. And while the team was overseas protecting aid convoys in an Ebola hot zone and then finding out later that they were really there to go after a new strain of the Ebola virus that had been stolen (they were NOT happy about that delay in their mission knowledge, btw…), Davis was stateside and getting into trouble. She met up with her sister, but she really seemed to have a chip on her shoulder, so the visit didn’t go very well. That sent her to a bar, where she sat and drank…and drank…and drank…by herself. And THAT caught the eye of a couple of jackasses who tried to hit on her and wouldn’t listen when she said no. They put their hands on her, so she was on high alert already, and when someone else came up behind her and put his hand on her shoulder, she reacted…well…frankly like I think she should have. She turned around and threw a punch, assuming it was another guy who was with the first two. Unfortunately for her, it was a police office, so she was arrested. Now, I doubt she’d go to jail for it after the circumstances came out about why she threw the punch, but because she’s now an officer in the military, the military may have something to say about that…and that leads us into tonight’s episode. When I first saw the pictures and episode title, I figured maybe her relationship with Sonny had come to light, but now I think it has to do with the tussle at the bar last week. Guess we’ll see!

On tonight’s episode, “Unbecoming an Officer,” Jason leads Bravo Team on his first mission back following surgery, and Ensign Davis faces disciplinary action. The episode was directed by series star and real-life veteran Tyler Grey (Trent).

See how it goes with Jason back in the field and why Davis is facing trouble tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Goldbergs, Schooled, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Making It, Single Parents, The Great Food Truck Race, S.W.A.T., & Stumptown.

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.

I’m enjoying the new season of S.W.A.T.. Last week was a good one… The new Lt. Lynch really fumbled the ball when she spoke signed SWAT up for an undercover operation and went to the team with it first before even speaking with Hicks. Not only that, but she talked with and gave the mayor all the details as well, which is a no-no for Hicks. Fortunately, when Chris and Street went undercover in a counterfeit money op to take down (again) a local gang, things went as good as can be expected. No one was hurt, although it looked shaky for a minute, and they were able to nab all the bad guys and get all the counterfeit money before it could be distributed. But the whole thing left a bad taste in Hicks’s and Hondo’s mouths about Lt. Lynch.

On the personal side of things, Hondo’s parents were still at odds (no surprise, really), but Hondo convinced his mom to come out to the car show for both Daryl and Hondo himself, not for his dad. She did, and I could tell it meant a lot to Daryl to have her there, since he’d worked hard helping Hondo’s dad with his car. We’re still wondering what Senior’s health issue is, since he coughed up blood a couple of episodes ago. When will we (and more importantly, Hondo) find out? Gotta be something serious, I’m guessing… As for the not-so-serious, Chris helped smooth the way for Street and Molly Hicks, even though she didn’t look entirely happy about it. She’s trying so hard to be happy with Kira and Ty, but obviously she has some feelings for Street. I want her to be happy with them. I love that odd relationship. I don’t want her with Street, simply because on this show, they won’t keep them together (I mean, look at how it went with Hondo & Jessica…). Guess we’ll see…

On tonight’s episode, “Immunity,” Deacon’s family gets caught in the crosshairs of a drug cartel when he and the SWAT team aim to bring down its leader, a former foreign rebel force leader running drugs in plain sight via a local flower market. Also, Hondo receives troubling news regarding his father, and Tan is forced to go before an internal review board due to his girlfriend’s indiscretion.

See if Deacon can protect his family tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Limetown, Chicago Med, The Goldbergs, Schooled, Chicago Fire, Guy’s Grocery Games, Nancy Drew, SEAL Team, Single Parents, & Chicago PD.
