In Chuck Lorre's new sitcom, United States of Al, Marine combat vet Riley (Parker Young) welcomes Al (Adhir Kalyan), his interpreter from Afghanistan, to the USA. How tight is their bond? Riley actually made Al godfather to his daughter! As Al attempts to start life anew in America, Riley tries to re-acclimate to civilian life (and reconnect with his ex). Al and Riley will no doubt continue to help each other navigate the next phase of their lives. "I have been in many death and life moments with you," Al tells pal Riley. "You always knew what to do."

United States of Al airs Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS. Stream anytime on Paramount+.

NCIS: Los Angeles is currently in its 12th season, and its longevity boils down to one thing: Chemistry! Special Agents G. (Chris O'Donnell) and Hanna (LL COOL J) are like an old married couple; they can communicate with just a look (you can practically hear Hanna say, "Seriously?" whenever he glares at G.)

Their playful banter is the bedrock of this action-packed procedural:

G. pestering his partner on a plane: "Would you like me to get you some snacks?"
Hanna: "No."
G: "You might think better on a full stomach."
Hanna: "Not hungry and I'm not thinking."
G: "You want me to get you something to drink?"
Hanna: "Why don't you grab me a glass of shut the hell up? Make it a double!"

On paper, someone as hot-headed as Sonny (AJ Buckley) and as cocky as Clay (Max Thieriot) shouldn't get along, but SEAL Team''s Bravo 3 and Bravo 6 just gel! The bromance between these brothers-in-arms has been a blast to watch these last four seasons, and we get a kick out of all the nicknames Sonny bestows on Clay: Platinum Wonder, Captain America, Bam-Bam, Fabio, Covergirl, Magic Mike, Goldilocks, Ken Doll, and so on!

The original Star Trek boasted one of TV's best bro pairs, but before Kirk and Spock there was Pike (Anson Mount) and Spock (Ethan Peck). "I think, at this point, Spock has compartmentalized his human side," Peck told TOR.com. "And I think Pike was, as a human, a good emotional example for him." Star Trek:Discovery''s dynamic duo will be able to explore their bromance further as they explore Strange New Worlds in their upcoming Paramount+ spinoff.

At the start of Riverdale, Archie (KJ Apa) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) aren't exactly the best of friends. But we do know they were childhood besties. (The iconic redhead even snuck out to meet his beanie-wearing buddy at his treehouse back in the day!) Still, the jock and the outcast have always stuck up for each other and have thankfully mended their strained bro-ship. "Jarchie" 4EVA!

Season 5 of Riverdale returns in July on The CW.

For One-0 seasons of Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and Danny "Danno" Williams (Scott Caan) have had each other's backs. (Sure, they've had their share of carguments, but c'mon! Danno donated his own liver to McGarrett in Season 6, so they're literally blood brothers!) We'll admit we shed a tear or two when McGarrett said "aloha" to Hawaii and his partner in Hawaii Five-0's series finale. "This isn't goodbye forever," McGarrett promised, as they hugged it out and exchanged ILY's.

As we soar toward Supergirl''s thrilling conclusion, The CW has given us a glimpse into the beginning of the end with the official synopsis of the Season 6 premiere episode, "Rebirth":

As Brainiac (Jesse Rath) lays close to death after trying to stop Lex (Jon Cryer), Supergirl and team soar in to save him, engaging in an epic battle with Gamenmae (guest star Cara Buono). After beating Leviathan, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex, who has used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world to love him and follow him at all costs, no matter what horrible things he does. Knowing how dangerous this makes her brother, Lena (Katie McGrath) enlists the entire team—Alex (Chyler Leigh), J'onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), Kelly (Azie Tesfai), and Brainiac—to help, but Supergirl realizes that the only way to truly stop Lex is to sacrifice herself.

The sixth and final season of Supergirl premieres Tuesday, March 30, at 9/8c on The CW. Stream next day free only on The CW!

But when she returns to San Francisco, she finds her hometown overrun by a powerful, corrupt Triad. Nicky will rely on her tech-savvy sis, Althea (Shannon Dang); Althea's fiancé, Dennis (Tony Chung); pre-med bro Ryan (Jon Prasida); Assistant District Attorney and ex Evan (Gavin Stenhouse); and new beau Henry (Eddie Liu)—as well as her martial arts skills and Shaolin values—to protect her family and community.

We're just now getting "Thong Song" out of our heads—you may recall that our Legends battled the Encores while platinum-haired Sisqo (!) performed his 2000 earworm. Unfortunately, the Season 5 finale was also the swan song for two of our irreverent heroes: Zari 1.0—who went back inside the Air Totem to save her brother's life—and Charlie, who announced that she was leaving the Waverider. And then this cliffhanger: Sara (Caity Lotz) was abducted by aliens!

Meanwhile, Adam (Sam Underwood) tries to make a name for himself outside of his massive family shadow. As he ruthlessly climbs the ladder of success, things with girlfriend Kirby (Maddison Brown) get messy!

Sammy Jo (Rafael de la Fuente) looks to expand his hotel and his heart with help from Culhane (Robert Riley).

And an unlikely alliance forms between Alexis (Elaine Hendrix) and her sister-in-law turned mother-in-law Dominique (Michael Michelle) as they set out to take back what they feel is rightfully theirs, even if it means deceiving their husband-slash-son Jeff.

With killer cop Dean (Rich Sommer) and drug kingpin Nia (Nicki Micheaux) dead, who'll emerge as the next big threat?

The bucolic tranquility of Greylock is turned upside down when an incredibly valuable mineral is discovered under the New Hampshire town. After state-backed mining company Lydon Industries swoops in with plans to extract the mineral—plans that include wiping Greylock off the map—rebellious HS teacher Sarah Cooper (Stella Baker) proposes an unconventional solution: Declare independence. Citing various historical maps, she explains that the land on which Greylock sits was never properly claimed by the United States. If Sarah and her friends can convince the town to vote for independence, Greylock can gain international sovereignty and protect its land for good! But a daunting task awaits: How do you build a country from scratch?

News that she relishes portraying a character who's always "fighting for what is right," something Patton does IRL.

"I've never been a person who could keep my mouth shut for too long, especially when it comes to injustice."

At just 24 years old, Dever has already worked with such mighty women as directors Kathryn Bigelow and Olivia Wilde, and alongside such acclaimed actresses including Emma Thompson, Olivia Colman, Jennifer Garner, and Toni Collette.

"They're doing everything with determination and confidence. And I think confidence is one of the most infectious things in the world. To be around people with a work ethic, who say what they want and just get it done—what's better than that?"

Why Women Kill star Lucy Liu paved the way for minority actresses—by demanding a seat at the table. "For me, I knew there was a bigger picture, and I don't know if I would accept no for an answer," Liu told Forbes. "I'm very persistent and a very curious person. So, every chance I got, I would go in there and prove—yes, maybe this is not what you were looking for originally, but there's a different way to look at it." Liu is the first Asian-American actress to score Primetime Emmy and SAG noms, the first to host Saturday Night Live, and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2019—with fellow Charlie's Angels stars Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz.

"Black women have been equalizing for years and years," The Equalizer's Queen Latifah tells TV Line. "From Hatshepsut to Stacey Abrams to Kamala Harris, to my mother and my grandmother, seeing a Black woman equalize is not a new thing to me. Seeing it on network TV once every week?

Melissa Benoist will soon be flying back to our TV screens one last time as Supergirl on The CW. But not before paying tribute to the role that put her on the map. She writes on Instagram:

"To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement. Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless.

"She's had that impact on me, too. She's taught me strength I didn't know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we're united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better. She has changed my life for the better, and I'm forever grateful."

Tichina Arnold's socially conscious sitcom The Neighborhood doesn't shy away from timely issues, like racial injustice. She tells Watch: "Sometimes when the truth is told, it's uncomfortable. This is part of change. It's a natural human instinct; you don't want to be uncomfortable. But it's what we do with our being uncomfortable. I'm happy that we have a platform. We deal with real topics. This is not fantasy. I think it's wonderful we've tapped into Black Lives Matter. Just add 'too' behind it. We matter, too. For me to be on a show that's on CBS, and CBS is able to say Black lives matter, that's change. And it's change for the better."

I don't look at it as a weight; I look at it as a blessing—so I'm really excited to be able to be a part of this story that's being told. To see so many kids see their complexion on-screen, doing things that they have probably never seen be done before, I think that matters. I have this belief that if you see it, you can be it." —Javicia Leslie, who identifies as bisexual and is the first African-American woman to portray Batwoman in a live-action production, tells Watch.

Nancy Drew star Kennedy McMann has reinvented the beloved girl detective for a new generation. She explained to InStyle:

"A major theme of our show is all of these kids messily finding out who they are and what their place is in the world, and how their identities are shifting. Nancy has lived as this perfect student, perfect daughter, perfect friend, perfect girlfriend throughout high school and then she watches her whole world fall apart. It's sort of, 'I put in all this effort to be perfect for so long and look where it's gotten me.' I think there's a rebellion in her, and she just wants to finally, for the first time, stop trying to please everybody."

We already think our parents are superheroes—but imagine having an actual superhero for a parent! Therein lies the premise of Superman & Lois, who are raising teen sons in Smallville. In the pilot, it's the intrepid reporter Lois (Bitsie Tulloch) who breaks the news to their kids. She tells Collider: "It ultimately boils down to who Lois Lane is. She wants to save the world with words and she doesn't believe that it's in their sons' best interests to be keeping secrets from them. It really boils down to the fact that Lois believes in truth and justice."

I've been doing Deepak Chopra's 21-day Abundance Meditation challenge. It's 15-minute meditations, free on YouTube, where Deepak Chopra talks to you about the laws of dharma and how we can have more abundance, gratitude, and joy in our life. I lay on the ground and put my legs on the wall, like an L. Being elevated like that means better circulation and more blood to the brain, so when I'm done I feel even more energized. Anytime I'm stressed out, I'm like, "I need a wall and a floor right now."

Homemade Bone Broth

COVID hit and reignited my passion for cooking. During quarantine, my boyfriend and I made fancy lamb tagine and butternut squash noodle lasagna. We even made bone broth that's so absolutely delicious, we've been flirting with the idea of selling it. Maybe we're a little high off our own supply, but we're like, "We'll be bone broth entrepreneurs!" We'd call it Bad to the Bone.

I grew up in Houston and went to school in Austin. I'm excited to be back here to shoot Walker so I can do Whataburger stop-ins more often. I love their breakfast: I get the chicken sandwich on a biscuit with gravy and sweet tea. You just don't get that anywhere else.

One positive thing I can attribute to social media is that people can share their views. I want to always create a dialogue. It gives me hope for the future that we are sharing our concerns and ideas with each other about civil rights, the environment, and making positive change. I love to see people getting informed, speaking up, and understanding that we have personal power as people.

Thrill Seeking

I'm a skiing and surfing enthusiast, but I'm terrible at both. I continuously get worked by the ocean, and if skiing I'm on my butt 90 percent of the time. But I keep going back—and with a smile on my face. The more I go, the better I get.
