The Family Business 2

The Duncans are a prominent family from Jamaica, Queens living fast and luxurious.

By day, they're an upstanding family; by night, they live a dangerous secret life.

The patriarch of the family, LC Duncan (Ernie Hudson), is at the age when he's starting to think about retirement and has to decide which of his children should take over his thriving exotic car dealership.

The Duncans quickly come under siege from some of the top politicians, mafia and drug cartels in the city and will have to stick together or die separately.

Season 2 continues to follow the Duncan family as they look to further solidify their position as a leading faction in the New York criminal underworld.

This season will pick up where the debut season concluded, as the Duncans work to calm tensions with rivals, the Zunigas.

Family patriarch LC and eldest son Orlando execute a plan to expand business operations with their proprietary drug HEAT, but as they gain momentum in the venture, they face opposition from some old and new foes.

For some in the Duncan clan, individual drama mounts that could threaten their lives and ruin the family business.

Will they be able to stay intact and navigate these dangerous scenarios, or will things fall apart?

In the Season 2 premiere, "Back to Life": The Duncans are dealing with the shocking revelation that their enemy, Consuela Zuniga, is the mother of Vegas's son, Nevada.

While new threats appear, LC sits down with the underworld leaders to discuss the future of HEAT.

Close Enough 2

Animated comedy series about a motley crew of housemates living on the east side of Los Angeles: married couple Emily and Josh, their five-year-old daughter Candice, and their divorced best friends Bridgette and Alex.

Looking to make the leap from carefree 20-somethings to adulting pros, Josh, Emily and their BFFs are navigating that transitional time in your 30s when life is about growing up, but not growing old.

It's about juggling work, kids, and latent dreams - while dodging time-traveling snails, stripper clowns and murderous mannequins.

Their life may not be ideal, but for now, it's close enough.

Season 2 has Josh, Emily and the gang continuing to navigate adulthood while contending with haunted couches, bulbous horses, time-traveling whiskeys and a literal houseguest from hell - all in their very own apartment.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Josh Gets Shredded": After breaking his back trying to lift Candice, Josh is told that he must exercise his core.

He goes to a special gym that works its visitors until they are absolutely ripped.

Soon, Josh becomes more obsessed with keeping his muscles than he does with wanting to play with Candice and tries to reach his peak.
