The action heats up on this week's Ironside, when the NBC drama's titular character (played by Blair Underwood) and his team try to track down a serial stabber.
As Virgil (Pablo Schreiber) and Teddy (Neal Bledsoe) are hot on the serial killer's trail, Det. Ironside and Holly (Spencer Grammer) investigate a case-within-a-case when they discover a teenage witness to the slashing went missing as a child. Their search takes them to the heart of the New York City's Greenwich Village where Ironside finds himself in the middle of a heated exchange.

After her breakthrough performances in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, no one would question why Rebel Wilson has become a sought-after star, or why ABC would want to build a show around her ample and fearlessly outrageous talents. But Super Fun Night hasn't been much of a joyride so far.
The original pilot, which has been replaced by another episode for its official premiere (9:31/8:31c), elicited this reaction from me in the Fall Preview issue: "The grotesque extremes to which Wilson stoops to get laughs in this frenetic vehicle have a whiff of desperation. It might also be more fun if she used her authentic Aussie accent." The objection stands about her Americanized speech (her choice), and while the new opener is a little less degrading — instead of exposing her body on a city street with flashing lights on her underwear, a new gag involves an office elevator door shredding her dress, revealing her Spanx at work — it's not much funnier.
