THE GREAT NORTH: With Crispin’s help, Ham tries to re-create a more theatrical version of his coming out. Meanwhile, hoping to record their first true crime podcast, Wolf and Honeybee investigate a local cold case and are shocked by what they uncover in the “Say It Again, Ham Adventure” episode of THE GREAT NORTH airing Sunday, May 8 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Let’s talk about Sunday night’s TV!

AMERICAN IDOL: Well, it’s deeply uncomfortable multiple IDOL finalists have COVID and…everyone acted like it was business as normal? It would be one thing if the positives had come earlier in the week, but one only popped after dress rehearsal yesterday…it’s not unreasonable to be concerned the other contestants were exposed at the very least then. And yet….full studio, no masks, no distancing. (And going to Vegas soon.) Sigh.

I’ve liked Huntergirl a lot in the past, but I thought this was her weakest week by far. If we were just going by this week’s performances, I would have swapped her out for Christian Guardino. (Though, honestly, Nicolina also didn’t impress me that much, either, though I did find her to be stronger than Huntergirl this week. “Alone” is such a big song to try on IDOL given the Carrie Underwood of it, and it didn’t compare.)

THE SIMPSONS: We’ve had times when Marge and Bart bond, but frequently it’s Bart temporarily becoming “good” or Marge getting into something he loves (like video games). So it was interesting to see us get a glimpse of Marge’s past where she really did connect to Bart’s pranking ways. Honestly, for as frustrated as she’s been by some of his behavior, her having a history where she did similar things would explain why Bart hasn’t been more extensively shut down in his bad behavior.

THE GREAT NORTH: This was an absolutely beautiful episode. It’s been lovely that Ham’s family has absolutely accepted his sexuality, but it would make sense he feels a liiiiiitle left out things were so easy. I’m glad he got to be a little more dramatic about it, song and dance included, especially since his family’s support never wavered. I love this family so much.

BOB’S BURGERS: Okay, it was so sweet the kids tried to get Linda her great-grandmother’s recipe. It wasn’t exactly successful—the estranged family didn’t have it, either—but Linda was thrilled about the effort. And, hey, they might be able to patch the family up. (Maybe. If the pranking doesn’t go absolutely awry.)

FAMILY GUY: Well, I laughed out loud at the “true though”/Trudeau joke. Meg and Lois’ competition over the handyman was predictably uncomfortable, and I didn’t expect it to escalate to a literal death, but…okay!
