We watched Designated Survivor last night. The premise: Kiefer Sutherland is the HUD secretary who has just been asked to resign. He is also the designated survivor for the State of the Union address. The Capitol is blown up and Sutherland becomes president. Looks like it will be a mix of whodunit, political drama and family drama. I thought the premiere was really good. They did a good job of introducing all of the major players while moving the story along. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here. I will definitely be watching again.
ABC: Grey’s Anatomy at 8, Notorious at 9, How To Get Away with Murder at 10. I am not ashamed to admit that I have watched Grey’s since day one and still love it. I thought I might try Notorious because I like the stars, but I have not seen one good review for it. I watched about half a season of HTGAWM and got tired of it real quick.
FOX: Rosewood at 8, Pitch at 9. Never watched Rosewood. Pitch is a new show about the first female MLB player. I’m a sucker for sports shows/movies so this one intrigues me.
NBC: Superstore at 8, The Good Place at 8:30, Chicago MED at 9, Blacklist at 10. I love both comedies. I was only able to watch half of Med on demand this summer so I’m not sure if I will feel like I can start season 2. I still enjoy Blacklist, but I feel the time is coming that I won’t care anymore.
Cable: Better Things on FX.
My advice: Watch Grey’s, record the NBC comedies(though I will do the reverse since my family does not like Grey’s), watch Pitch, record Med and watch Blacklist. Or, just record them all and watch football.
