Last night I watched the premiere of The Good Place that aired Monday night. The premise: Kristen Bell dies and is mistakenly sent to the good place. In order to try to stay, she asks her soulmate to help her learn to be good. Ted Danson plays the architect of the neighborhood. I really enjoyed it. I laughed a lot(even without the help of a laugh track). Kristen Bell and Ted Danson are great as usual. I really enjoyed the live action version of Siri who answers any questions they have. The interaction between Bell and William Jackson Harper, as her soulmate, is great with good chemistry. The only worry I have is that the premise can’t carry the how for more than a season.
Now for tonight:
ABC: The Goldbergs at 8, Speechless at 8:30, Modern Family at 9, Black-ish at 930, Designated Survivor at 10. I still really like Modern Family. I’ve heard good things about The Goldbergs and Black-ish but never watched them. I’ve seen the pilot episode of Speechless and really liked it. I think it could be a hit. We are very excited about Designated Survivor. I’m hoping it’s less thriller and more West Wing in nature.
CBS: Survivor at 8, Bib Brother finale at 9:30. Survivor is still the only show I always watch live. I love the show and usually kind of live tweet it. I will be watching again tonight. Big Brother does not interest me at all.
FOX: Lethal Weapon at 8, Empire at 9. I’m hoping Lethal Weapon is good. I will be recording and hoping for the best. I’ve read some good things about it.
NBC: Blindspot at 8, Law and Order: SVU at 9, Chicago PD at 10. I don’t watch any of these. We started watching Chicago Fire over the summer and I feel like I should watch PD, but I am several seasons behind right now.
CW: Whose Line Is It Anyway at 9 I will record because I love this show.
Cable: Mr Robot finale at 10. I gave up on this season a few weeks ago.
My advice: Watch Survivor live. Record Lethal Weapon, Speechless, Whose Line and Modern Family. Watch Designated Survivor.
