Manifest Recap: My Two Dads

Did NBC’s Manifest just go an episode without raising any distinct, new questions or adding a fresh wrinkle to the main mystery?

I’m not saying that it isn’t allowed to hold pat for a week, or more. It’s just that I, for one, still await the drop of a big ol’ shoe, especially as November sweeps nears (starting Oct. 26).

Dancing With the Stars Week 4 Recap: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

The CW’s Charmed reboot wasn’t the only series summoning the Power of Three this week.

Dancing With the Stars also showed its appreciation for trios on Monday night, when each Season 27 couple was joined by a third dancer for their routines.

Of course, not all trio dances were created equal on the Week 4 broadcast. Though most duos were joined by DWTS alumni who fared well in their seasons, one couple had the enormous advantage of adding a professional dancer to their team (hi, Maddie Ziegler!), and another had the disadvantage of adding… a Bachelor villain.

After one last hour of Blind Auditions Monday, The Voice kicked off its Battle Rounds, and frankly, they couldn’t start soon enough. Although there have been some memorable contestants singing their way onto Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson’s teams, Season 15 has thus far felt a little… underwhelming, like a period instead of an exclamation point.
