Last week’s series premiere set up Chuck Lorre’s newest sitcom as a sweet enough premise: heart patient Bob (Billy Gardell) takes a serious liking to one of his medical caregivers, Nigerian nurse Abishola (Folake Olowofoyeku). Tonight, their relationship deepens – or, actually, it shallows, because if their courtship moves too quickly, this show loses much of its initial comedy and drama.

In week two, the blind auditions continue. Presumably, so does the scene-stealing, Blake-blocking behavior of returning judge Gwen Stefani.

Last week, Candy’s wealthy new boyfriend offered her all the money she needed to make her next porn film – but she turned him down, preferring to raise the funds herself and keep their relationship on a personal level. Tonight, she seeks out new sources for money, and also looks for some stars for her upcoming movie. One place she might look: to her former star Lori (Emily Meade), who’s now trying to shift to performing as background talent in mid-Eighties music videos for the

SEASON PREMIERE: This CBS series launched in 1968, and is the oldest continuous TV series in prime time. And after more than half a century, 60 Minutes still manages to win its time slot, and often rank in the week’s Top 10. How? Because it still delivers, week in and week out, some of the best reporting on some of the most current and/or fascinating subjects. Tonight’s Season 52 opener is a perfect example: It leads with Scott Pelley’s interviews with House Speaker N

SEASON PREMIERE: Here’s another of the current prime-time series that, by now, is one of TV’s most tenured nighttime shows. It’s The Simpsons, which launched as a spinoff from The Tracey Ullman Show in 1989 with a full-length Christmas special, and is now beginning Season 31. And it’s doing so with an episode that has a video of Homer and Bart arguing – a video that goes viral and turns them into media celebrities. (Wonder if Bart will start his

This documentary series returned last week – apparently, just in time. What I can’t wait for, anticipating tonight’s show, is how the reporters on this show dispatch themselves, and where – and what they get, when news on the hill about the whistleblower accusations is traveling so fast and furiously.
