Tonight at 8p on TNT, The Librarians is finally back with two all-new episodes to save the world. Not from Donald Trump, but from magical artifacts falling into the wrong hands.
For example, during the 4th season premiere, someone has unearth one of the four cornerstones from the Library of Alexandria. If someone finds all four stones before Eve (Rebecca Romijn), Flynn (Noah Wyle), Jacob (Christian Kane), Ezekiel (John Harlan Kim) and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) do, then their library will be destroyed. Time is of the essence, and they have one major problem, they don’t know where any of the stones are hidden and there is no map detailing their location.
Thankfully, Jenkins (John Larroquette) knows someone who might be able to help them, since she hid the stones. But there is something else about her, she used to be Flynn’s old guardian before Eve and they also had love connection. Oh and Flynn thought she was dead. What will that mean for the future of Fleve? Especially since your saw their wedding in that sneak peek. But I have said too much.
The Librarians is the perfect mix of Sci-Fi, adventure and comedy all rolled into one show that you can watch with your Family. How many shows like this can you do that with? And wait until you see next week’s Christmas themed episode.

Then at 8:30p but over on ABC, it is time for a DiMeo Christmas on Speechless. When Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) and Maya (Minnie Driver) are woken up by Dylan’s (Kyla Kenedy) snake, they did not know about, the family decides they want a dog. Well everyone but JJ (Micah Fowler), who would have to get the pup as a service dog since they are not allowed to own any animals at the house they are renting. He is busy with his film class, so he does not have time for a dog. Dylan goes behind his back to get the dog and when JJ finds out, he tells her he is going to get r-e-revenge on her. She is afraid, she is very afraid and she should be.
Also afraid of something is their brother, Ray (Mason Cook), wants to introduce his mom to his girlfriend’s mom. Taylor’s (Sedona James) mom (Sarah Chalke) and Maya have a history causing friction for everyone. Is this is the end of Raylor?
Finally, Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) makes the mistake of telling Jimmy that the store he is moonlights at is giving away free turkeys. Kenneth accidentally tells Jimmy how to break the system, so that he can get as many of the frozen bird as he wants. Kenneth knows it is a mistake because he knows the DiMeos, he just doesn’t realize how much of one until he opens the freezer door and several of them fall out of there since turkeys cannot fly. Why does Jimmy need all of those turkeys, you will just have to tune in to see.
Speechless is not your normal family show because the DiMeos are not perfect people, but they are the perfect family for each other. At the end of the day they take care of each other and that is a big part of making a good family sitcom. That and a lot of laughs, which every week they deliver. And the biggest selling point is they treat JJ like he is a normal kid and not like one who has Cerebral Palsy, and that alone makes this show very special to me with everything else is just grave on top.
