Let’s talk about Sunday night’s TV!

THE SIMPSONS: This was an episode where I wondered if I actually knew-knew THE SOPRANOS, it might make a difference. I’ve liked Fat Tony—and Ned—episodes, but I was kind of underwhelmed by this one. It might be one I appreciate more in hindsight, but at first watch, it just…fine.

(Was I the only one who immediately Googled CADF12?)

THE EQUALIZER: Liza Lapira was so damn good. I’m glad we got insight into Mel’s family, but also got to see her be her absolute badass self as she saved her brother. It was tough seeing her and Robyn not be entirely in sync during this case, but I’m glad there was a bit of peace. And now we can get Mel and D training again, which is great.

Aunt Vi remains the best.

AMERICAN IDOL: Well, the Willie Spence tribute made me cry. Kya Monée was also genuinely the best performance of the night, but oh boy was the whole segment emotional.

Outside of that, the premiere was just fine. No one instantly jumped out as an obvious superstar, but I’m excited to have the show back.

THE GREAT NORTH: Beef’s quest to get a new mattress was, somehow, even more weird than I expected. (And as someone who accidentally rewatched THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA over the weekend, the homage to that made me laugh.) While a more traditional bed makes sense, part of me was hoping he would get the race car bed. (Even if it was for kids.)

MAGNUM P.I.: I loved the way the show wrote Miggy’s initial coupling. After this much build-up, it makes sense they’d have concerns—both about the practical and the more emotional (not getting a proper courtship)—and I appreciated how they handled both. (That wine cellar wooing? Love.) But, guys, generally when you are trying to keep your brand new, top-secret romance from your friends…maybe you don’t invite one of them to live with you. Or you think about it and invite them to live in the bigger house, where it would be easier to sneak around. (Good luck keeping this quiet.)

Well, Greene’s murder is not going to go over well. Was it done because he wouldn’t answer and the new Big Bads are hoping it draws out his team?

Also, the less said about the doll who played baby Joy, the better.

BOB’S BURGERS: Of course it took a single day for Bob to get obsessed with a random sailor. And of course the family (and their burger?) almost derailed the whole trip. I love these weirdos.

FAMILY GUY: Admittedly, it’s weird timing for a Father’s Day ep. But Trojan Bosch made me laugh, even if the visual was so weird.

THE COMPANY YOU KEEP: I enjoyed the pilot, but I’m intrigued by how this will work as a series. A thing that is very hard to sustain is having your audience know all of this information your leads don’t. It can work for a bit, but it’s really, really hard to sustain long-term. (Even a season.) It’s a very delicate line to toe, so I’m intrigued to see more.

But, man, what a bonkers-stacked cast.
