Mellie’s 100 days as president on Scandal, Jack a Grandpa on Will & Grace? Hocus Pocus

Scandal season 7 episode 2

Viewers on Thursday night have their choice of a variety of programs and you can even be picky! Not only does game five commence today for the MLB League Championship Series where the Los Angeles Dodgers look to beat the Chicago Cubs, there are sitcoms, reality shows and even Halloween specials to enjoy tonight. It’s one of those magical fall days with so many option that the DVR will be working overtime.

Scandal takes a look at Mellie’s 100 days as president

On Thursday night Scandal viewers will be reflecting on a big milestone for the president. It’s Mellie’s 100th day as president. As Olivia Pope continues to work her magic, the story line last week left viewers wondering what might happen as former President Fitzgerald Grant returns to see Olivia Pope. Offering up some backstory, it appears that Fritz took up life as an ordinary citizen, but might be missing the politics of DC with an eager feeling to return.

Is Jack a Grandpa on Will & Grace?

Will & Grace has been riding high with ratings as the viewers have thoroughly enjoyed the return of the show. Tonight is no exception. If you’ve been watching NBC at all over the past couple of days. The teaser for tonight’s show definitely makes you want to tune in. The idea of Jack as a grandfather is quite shocking. Not because it’s not possible, but because it’s a mark in time. As fans see the characters as they are and they might have aged, but so gracefully it’s hardly noticeable. It’s hard to embrace the time between the first and second series because it feels like the characters haven’t even left. Seeing Jack has become older (and has an offspring of some sort) is an interesting issue for everyone watching. Time makes us change and hopefully it’s always for the better.

Hocus Pocus

Freeform’s 13 Nights of Halloween kicks off on Thursday night with Hocus Pocus. As everyone loves a little scary fun, this annual tradition of enjoying Halloween family favorites is a schedule to etch in your calendars. Leading up to Halloween, the movies we’ve come to love over the years will be on TV.

Finally…It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

The Halloween classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is returning tonight on ABC. It’s amazing that the viewers are always tuned in and ready to enjoy the special one more time. A perfect show for the youngsters while the older folks love it too.
