What to Watch: 01/17/2016

Comedy comes in many forms and fashions. On today’s menu, our offerings range from the broad to the broader — from Rashida Jones returning in a Naked Gun-esque farce running all day to a new set of Real Housewives battling near the site of this year’s most major battle.

JASON’S PICK:
Angie Tribeca [TBS, 9p]
One of the stranger TV debuts of all-time, at least wrt its rollout, Angie Tribeca has been on the shelf for well over a year, and now the creators are unleashing the entire 10-episode first season back-to-back-to-back-to-etc. Generally, that would be a whole bunting of red flags, but the trailer for the satire starring Rashida Jones looks hilarious and early reviews are excellent, so strap in!

KATHERINE’S PICK:
The Real Housewives of Potomac [Bravo, 9p]
New money from Potomac, Maryland, bring new shame and degradation to the suburbs of DC.

NAVANI’S PICK:
Hitch [Lifetime, 3p]
A date doctor [Will Smith] finds his own rules for love challenged when he falls for a gossip columnist [Eva Mendes] with her guard up. So, turns out there are no formulas for romance but we will always have the soul train line.

ALSO ON TONIGHT:
Bob’s Burgers wins its ongoing battle against the NFL tonight and will air its first episode of 2016. If the Globes and the Oscar nominations have you in award frenzy, TJ Miller hosts the 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards on A&E. And this might not be a bad week to jump right into one of CBS’ most secret treasures, Madam Secretary.
