THE GREAT NORTH: In a special musical episode, Judy embarks on a journey after getting some unexpected news from the dentist in the ìBrace/Off Adventureî season premiere episode of THE GREAT NORTH airing Sunday, Sept. 26 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Let’s talk about Sunday night’s TV!

THE SIMPSONS: The show has incorporated musical elements in the past, mostly successfully, but for some reason this one didn’t land quite as much as I wanted it to. Fair or not, I kept thinking of the show’s EVITA musical parody, which was also a full musical, but felt like it worked a bit better. In this case, I think Kristen Bell as Marge’s singing voice was a bit distracting? I hope I enjoy it a bit more on rewatch.

BIG BROTHER: It’s felt like so much of the last two episodes have been killing time, but the actual competition was fascinating. I suspect X is going to win it all, but it would have been way more interesting if Big D or Azah had pulled it off in round 1. In a lot of ways, it would be a lot more chaotic and fun if it was Big D and Azah in the finale, but it’s hard to imagine a world where it isn’t X and Big D.

CELEBRITY WHEEL OF FORTUNE: Jason Alexander was great at this game? I almost felt bad for his competitors. He was actually so good, it made me want an All Star version of the game for celebrities…at the end of the season, bring the best three players back.

THE GREAT NORTH: Ah, I love this show; it feels like a comfy sweater. While I absolutely was counting down the seconds until my braces were off, I’m happy for Judy she has crazy teeth and it could be a fixture in her life for the foreseeable future.

TONY AWARDS: I wasn’t sure what to expect with the hybrid show, but what a beautiful tribute to Broadway. It was also a glaring, obvious difference from the Emmys, which seemed to want to pretend the pandemic was over and barely respected a number of the winners. With the Tonys, people were masked in the audience, and no one was freaking played off. (Also, I just want to rewatch that duet section for the next few days on repeat, please and thank you.)

BOB’S BURGERS: Poor Linda. Who knew a flower dog could be so triggering?

SUPERMARKET SWEEP: I appreciate the new change to the format so the finalists get 90 seconds to win up to $100k versus last year’s format where they had to risk the money with each level of possible reward…yeah, if you only get the first level, $5k isn’t a huge amount, but it’s better than being really good and getting all the way to the last round and getting nothing.

FAMILY GUY: Okay, the joke about Burbank being the home of the most year-round Halloween stores feels very local, but also very true. And Lois would absolute fake being blind, but I’m honestly shocked Peter didn’t get roped into the insanity.

THE ROOKIE: Well, it’s absolutely a trend at this point with regulars leaving during the first episode. (Hi FBI: MOST WANTED, A MILLION LITTLE THINGS, and SVU.) Jackson’s death is…awful. Because of the circumstances of the first episode, it was kind of easy to brush aside how big the loss is, but, boy, that’s going to be a hard thing for them to overcome.

Honestly, though, I am so relieved Angela gave birth to her son, because I spent so much time last season being worried something would go wrong with that pregnancy. Now she has baby Jackson
