On Sunday night's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 11, a tropical storm tore through Florida and left few survivors in its wake.

In a manner of speaking, of course.

It's not only when you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online. Every Real Housewives vacation anywhere is meant to stir up two things:

  1. Funny fish-out-of-water imagery
  2. Epic fights

This time, the scenery of Boca Raton, Florida, wasn't exotic enough for the humor of the O.C. ladies' trip to Bali, but Jim Marchese sure delivered on #2.

Relieved and cancer-free, Amber Marchese decided she and her hubby would come to Florida on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 11.

They came, and with a vengeance.

The Simpsons lived up to its promise tonight.

After vowing all summer long to kill off a key character, the animated smash let go of Krusty's father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky, on The Simpsons Season 26 Episode 1.

Voiced by the great Jackie Mason), the holy man had been a part of the show's universe since reuniting with his estranged, red-nosed son in 1991.

Why did producer Al Jean go there?

Outlander Season 1 Episode 8 served as the Starz show's midseason finale, and proved that the bliss we saw at the end of last week was too good to last.

Claire and Jamie were all over each other in typical newlywed fashion, while in stark contrast, Frank was crushed by despair at the loss of his wife.

Also, Outlander Season 1 Episode 8 gave us our first look at life in 1945.

There is no sign of Claire. No leads, no sign of a struggle or crime. Frank is incredulous at the notion that his wife may have run off with another.

Claire and Jamie's Christmas plans are cut shot by an attack, though the Scots prevail easily, while Frank nearly kills a man over a false lead.

After Jaime and Claire, smitten as they can possibly be, decide to get down and dirty in the woods, they are discovered by a couple of redcoats.

Friday night on Z Nation Season 1 Episode 3, survivors encountered a group of psycho outlaws as they made their way through the City of Brotherly Love.

Needless to say, this stop in Philadelphia was one they would soon regret.

While Cassandra's old group wants her back in the fold, she's ditched them.

Tobias has lost his mind, and the Black Summer appears to be to blame.

He states with enthusiasm that "in time's like these it's eat or be eaten."

Yes, Cassandra and her counterparts are actually a bunch of cannibals, which made for the biggest takeaway from Z Nation Season 1 Episode 3.

Meanwhile, Addy and Mack are trying to contact Citizen Z in the Arctic, but Addy is soon captured by Tobias' men and taken away to their camp.

Friday evening's premiere of The Amazing Race Season 25 Episode 1 showed us that the long-running reality competition still hasn't lost much of a step.

Kicking things off in Times Square, the Race is off and literally running!

Sure, Friday night TV is sort of a graveyard for reality shows, but still.

Sure, it could have benefited from an extra half hour like CBS gave Survivor Season 29 Episode 1 for us to better get to know the cast, but still.

Sure, Bethany Hamilton didn't get enough screen time, but still.

Okay, all complaining aside? It was a solid premiere for a still-solid show, and we briefly break down the contestants in order of how they finished below:

1. Misti & Jim, the dentists, don't lack for confidence, but were also willing to help out others and proved to be the most competent. First place? Well earned.

Aloha, television viewers!

Is the weather starting to turn chillier wherever you live? Are the cool winds of autumn starting to whip about? Well, fear not: It's always hot on Hawaii Five-0! (We're talking about the weather, people. Get your minds out of the gutter!)

So it was a pleasure to welcome McGarrett, Danno, Chin and company back into our lives for Hawaii Five-0 Season 5 Episode 1 last night.

The episode was titled "A'ohe kahi e pe'e ai," which translate to "Nothing to Hide." What made this an appropriate name for the first new installment of the fall?

On Friday night's Blue Bloods Season 5 Episode 1, Baez ended up badly injured after a convoy carrying drug evidence to be incinerated was attacked.

What led us to that point, and what transpired afterward?

As Blue Bloods Season 5 Episode 1 proved with the situation in Times Square, police often find themselves in situations where there is no easy answer.

React too fast and make an error in split-second judgment? You're at fault. Take your time and try to process the situation and miss your chance?

You're also at fault. Officer McCarthy found this out the hard way even though he was following procedure, failing to consider the impact of traffic.

The more surprising aspect of all this was the response.

Breaking Amish Season 3 Episode 2 saw the TLC show's new cast members head to New York City, where needless to say there was a lot to take in.

Before that, though, there was the leaving part. The simple saying goodbye to the home they grew up in and telling their parents about this plan.

That, for this new crop of men and women, proved most difficult of all.

For the most part, these conversations were left out of Breaking Amish Season 3 Episode 2. You can only imagine why they would tell TLC to take a hike.

Bates, though, was seen by his grandparents with cameras around.

Fortunately for him, he was able to leave town without having another talk with his parents, which paled in comparison to Mariam, who's leaving a little boy.

If you watch Breaking Amish online, you know the premise. This show is not meant to be a permanent exit, necessarily, but still, the stakes are high for her.

Miriam is a single mom and her son depends on her, so whether she's going to N.Y. to explore a better life is a long-game strategy he won't grasp.

On Parenthood Season 6 Episode 1, Sarah and Zeek headed to Las Vegas for his birthday, while there were plenty of other things going on in California.

The show's final season promises an emotional ride for the Bravermans, and the premiere certainly set the stage in fitting fashion for the acclaimed drama.

Let's break down some of the key takeaways ...

One of, if not the biggest water cooler moment of Parenthood Season 6 Episode 1 was when Zeek collapsed at a blackjack table, his life briefly in peril.

Of course, he was having none of this.

He makes it through the rest of the trip unharmed, but a trip to the doctor's office reveals that more tests need to be done on the family patriarch.

Could his death be inevitable sometime in the final 13 episodes of the series? It's hard not to think this was a bit of foreshadowing on the producers' part.

Kristina, meanwhile, is going all in for the grand opening of the Chambers Academy, her charter school created for kids just like autistic son Max.

Who has zero interest in going there.

Thursday on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 3, the show's "Wall of Glory" offered a sense of pride for the athletes coming together as a community.

A sense of pride for what they had accomplished, and one day might again.

The past is the past, of course, and we've got work to do. A LOT of work.

In the first workout of The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 3, it hurts. Bad.

The mental and physical toll is starting to be taken on some of the stars looking to relive their Glory Days, making you wonder if they'll ever get there.

By the end, though, the gang is firing on all cylinders for the most part.

The first challenge involved a crash course in nutrition and calories, teaching the athletes about portion sizes and food choices and how vital they are.

The winning team gets a two pound advantage at the scale, while the losing team's trainers had to eat the unhealthy food in question during the quiz.

Talk about an incentive to Google some nutrition facts ... or just watch The Biggest Loser online, because they've done a lot of the work for you now.
