Weekend Preview: ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Finally Returns

Features Writer


Bob’s Burgers (Sunday, Fox 8:30 p.m.) — Bob’s Burgers is constantly being shuffled around Fox’s Sunday schedule, so it’s great to see the winning comedy in a solid spot this week. It promises to be a strong episode as well, as most Tina-centric tales are. After the world’s most awkward teen has a bad breakup, Louise and Linda plan a day full of girls-only hijinks to cheer her up in an effort to fend off the Valentine’s Day blues. Gene and Bob take trapeze lessons together, which will probably end with disastrous results but may foster some father/son closeness.

Macgyver (Friday, CBS 8:00 p.m.) — Mac competes in a competition to make robotic combat machines and has to get creative when one machine is hacked and heads straight for the Pentagon. The b-plot has slightly lower stakes when Jack attends his high school reunion and hopes to face off against his rival who beat him for homecoming king.

Blindspot (Friday, NBC 8:00 p.m.) — Relationship drama between Jane Weller threatens to derail the group, but they have to put personal problems aside in order to track down missing nuclear warheads.

Hell’s Kitchen (Friday, FOX 8:00 p.m.) — Winning the coveted black jacket is on the line, so the remaining contestants have to compete in three different challenges: “Taste It, Now Make It,” “Five Domes,” and “Free For All.”

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Friday, The CW 8:00 p.m.) — Rebecca’s therapy inspires her to try on altruism for size. Nathaniel and White Josh bond over their recent breakups.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Friday, ABC 9:00 p.m.) — Sure, last week saw the team reunited and Fitz and Simmons FINALLY engaged, but they’re not going to escape so easily. A vengeful and powerful Kree warrior stands in their way.

Hawaii 5-0 (Friday, CBS 9:00 p.m.) — A man is accused of murdering his wife, and when he threatens to commit suicide in the wake of the accusations, members on the team have to face some personal demons.

Taken (Friday, NBC 10:00 p.m.) — Bryan Mills is back for season two (really?) with his particular set of skills. Serious question: did anyone really need a prequel series to explain Liam Neeson’s ass-kicking abilities?
