What's On Tonight – Gotham, The Black List And More

Gotham3-750x400It's a busy TV night as a lot of the new and returning shows make their debut. Here is a little reminder of what is on so you have time to set your DVRs. This won't be a regular column, but thought it could be helpful as all the new shows start to premier.

Just focusing on the primetime hours here:


8 – 10 PM: Dancing With The Stars – Second week of performances.

10 – 11PM: Forever – A fatal subway collision is investigated in the opener of this series, in which a New York City medical examiner attempts to uncover the truth behind his inexplicable immortality. New series staring Ioan Gruffudd.


8 – 9pm: The Big Bang Theory – In the Season 8 premiere, Amy and Leonard take a surprise road trip to Arizona to retrieve Sheldon, while Penny goes on a job interview at Bernadette's company, and Howard has problems wrapping his head around Stuart's relationship with Mrs. Wolowitz. The premier is followed by a second episode.

9 – 10pm: Scorpion – Computer genius Walter O'Brien and his equally brilliant friends investigate high-tech crimes. In the opener, Walter and his misfit colleagues are hired by the government to solve a crisis at the Los Angeles airport that leaves dozens of planes unable to land.

10 – 11pm: Under The Dome – Season 2 ends with the discovery of a potential exit from the Dome, just as the citizens trapped in Chester's Mill face imminent danger.


8 – 9pm: Gotham – Rookie detective James Gordon battles villains and corruption in the premiere of this action-adventure series set in pre-Batman Gotham City.

9 – 10pm: Sleepy Hollow – In the Season 2 premiere, Ichabod is buried alive in a coffin; Abbie's in danger of spending an eternity in purgatory; Katrina is a reluctant guest of the Headless Horseman; Capt. Irving is in jail on a murder charge; and Jenny is in a car accident.


8 – 10 pm: The Voice – Season 7 opens with blind auditions. The coaches are Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.

10 – 11pm: The Black List – Red faces an important person from his past in the Season 2 premiere. Also: Red continues to battle Berlin (Peter Stormare) and tangles with a new threat; and Liz deals with a past showdown with Tom. Guest stars include Mary Louise Parker and Krysten Ritter.


8 – 9pm: Who's Line Is It Anyway – Comedy improve show usually starring Ryan Styles, Greg Proops and more. Two episodes.

9 – 10pm: America's Next Top Model – The models are tasked with mastering the ultimate hair whip for a wind-blown photo shoot. One girl is given a penalty and is allowed only five frames to capture the perfect image. Later, Nick Cannon gives the models a chance to be the face of his new ad campaign.

For me it will be Gotham, Scorpion and the Black List live and then Sleepy Hollow and Forever on demand/DVR.
