Morris Chestnut has a new show debuting tonight, and all I can think of when I see his name is a girl in my screenwriting class in college. I came in at the end of the conversation and heard, “Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, and Shemmaaaaaaarrr Moore!” (I’m pretty sure she was just naming sexy black actors, but now when I think of one of them, I can’t help but think of the other two.) A lot of shows are returning tonight, but Rosewood is the only new show and my pick of the night.
The Middle (8/7c ABC)
Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance (8/7c CBS) Sweet Jesus, it’s season 31! Make it stop already.
The Goldbergs (8:30/7:30c ABC)
The Mysteries of Laura (8/7c NBC)
Empire (9/8c FOX)
Law & Order: SVU (9/8c NBC)
Modern Family (9/8c ABC)
Black-ish (9:30/8:30c ABC)
Nashville (10/9c ABC)
South Park (10/9c CC) I had no idea this show was still on, but it returned last week.
*Rosewood (8/7c FOX) Looks like a typical procedural, but Morris Chestnut is extremely charming and this could be a good lead-in for Empire.
Moonbeam City (10:30/9:30c Comedy Central) I am so not the target audience for this show, as I have never understood “adult cartoons” and I lost count after two fart jokes in the premiere last week. But if you want a bit of 80’s nostalgia, go for it.
We’re halfway through the week, people!
