Let’s talk about Monday night’s TV!

KENAN: This was a sweet, moving block back. Kenan dating was fun and cute, but I was honestly most moved by the women coming together for Tami against the paparazzo. And I loved Mika pointing out how Kenan hadn’t been giving Tami a fair shake in the second episode, which led to Kenan and Tami bonding over musical theater. (So much singing in season 2, so far, and I am here for it.)

THE CLEANING LADY: I wanted to like this more than I did. A billion years ago, there was a Fox show called THE MOB DOCTOR, and that’s what this show has reminded me of every step of the way. At some point, I might give it another try, but at first glance, it didn’t grab me the way I hoped it would.

THAT’S MY JAM: Okay, now that we’ve seen another episode of this, it absolutely is musical HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT. The mic tossing game was fun, but also playing random instruments feels hard as hell. The final round might need some tweaking in future seasons, though, because the ENTIRE GAME (for as much/little as it’s worth) resting on a single lyric (and a single contestant) doesn’t feel as fun/fair.

(Early contender for hilarious TV moment of the year goes to Chance the Rapper getting sprayed in the face mid-celebration, though.)

ORDINARY JOE: This was an episode where I wish we had more time to focus on just one of the plotlines. (Honestly, probably Cop Joe, who just learned he had a kid, and that’s a big thing to contend with given how his life was going at the moment. And even though Music Joe had a similar storyline, it was very different circumstances.)

We’re also fairly close to the end of the season and it doesn’t feel like any of the stories is close to wrapping up for the year, so I’m curious if the pace will remain the same or it’ll start to speed toward some sort of end…
