Tuesdays are turning into a power night with exciting shows of all varieties populating the basic cable line-up. We’re feeling sit-coms tonight, but there’s something for a whole lotta tastes out there, so while you enjoy Rob Lowe’s idiosyncratic TV lawyer giving the Huangs an admiring eyeful, here’s some choice picks.
Fresh Off the Boat [ABC, 8p]
Honey and Marvin, the sitcom’s second-best couple, watches the Huang children while Jessica and Louis (the sitcom’s best couple) enjoy Valentine’s Day.
The Grinder [FOX, 9:30p]
Coming fresh off its (quite possibly) defining episode, The Grinder returns with Stewart suggesting his Rob Lowe-y brother Dean rethink embodying the “Grinder” persona. He’s going into therapy, and there’s so many positive directions that could milk for laughs, that I trust the show to deliver within this (albeit overmined) comedy goldmine.
The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story [FXX, 10p]
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the chaos and manipulation from both sides of the O.J. case and a glimpse of Kim Kardashian’s childhood bedroom in this mini-series. Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Here comes Megan Fox New Girl‘s temporary “New Girl” (don’t worry, Zooey’s not gone forever). Fox is coming to FOX (ugh, I deserve a painful death).
- Rev up that Bronco, it’s time to watch the famous chase with A.C. and O.J., as seen through the eyes of the creator of American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson on ABC. Meanwhile, current Bills running backs are merely assaulting cops (pass me a tall one, please)
- Let’s talk about sex, but in a laughy way, with @Midnight‘s reigning “funniest person on the internet,” comedian Nikki Glaser. Not Safe debuts tonight on Comedy Central (I’m ok with this one)
