The former "most senior correspondent" of "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" gets her own late-night gig in this new Monday series that, at press time, reportedly was still a work in progress. It seems a safe bet, however, that the new show will make use of the Toronto-born comic and actress's incomparable deadpan skills while asking funny yet pointed questions of interview subjects. Her husband and fellow "Daily Show" veteran Jason Jones gets his own TBS show, "The Detour," later this year.
When a city official is murdered in a way that no human could have managed, Mulder and Scully (David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson) are sent to investigate the incident in the new episode "Home Again." On a more private level, Scully wrestles with her conflicted feelings about the child she gave up for adoption. Sheila Larken, Tim Armstrong, Daryl Shuttleworth and Peggy Jo Jacobs guest star; Mitch Pileggi also stars.
Callie (Maia Mitchell) notices that Jude (Hayden Byerly) is spending time with Jack (Tanner Buchanan), a quirky foster teen they met at a youth event, in the new episode "If and When." Elsewhere, Brandon and Mat (David Lambert, Jordan Rodrigues) disagree over who should play the lead in a new Romeo and Juliet rock musical they're writing for school. Jesus (Noah Centineo) asks Ana (Alexandra Barreto) about the identity of his and Mariana's (Cierra Ramirez) birth father.
Sheer "Candymonium" breaks out in this new episode as the five remaining young bakers are tasked with using three types of candy in a dessert while also keeping it balanced to avoid crossing the line into candy overload. Valerie Bertinelli and Duff Goldman are the hosts.
