It’s just another Monday, it’s manic, but don’t wish it was Sunday, because this is also a fun day, with many stirring stories to be had if you plant on your couch and watch. What have we got for ya? We’ve got new episodes of two of the coolest-kid shows and a bio of one of the better romantic movie writers of all of the last few generations. There’s also the return of B-list star-studded dancing routines, LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell helping the children of L.A. solve their maritime crimes, a couple shows about devils, and one beloved show about a virgin.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend [CW, 8p]
Rebecca is forced to talk to her therapist, finally. Meanwhile, all of the male characters form a search party. Why didn’t they ask Paula?
Better Call Saul [AMC, 9p]
Frankly, after last week’s Kim-heavy episode, I’m not sure how much more of this spiraling, pre-destined to fail Jimmy/Saul I can take, but despite my own weak cringe reflex, it’s still one of the best shows on television, so I’ll be there, but dammit CEG will surely be more fun.
Everything is Copy [HBO,9p]
An affectionate and heartfelt tribute to the life of writer/director/producer extraordinaire Nora Ephron from the friends and family that knew her best.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- The critical fave Jane the Virgin pairs well with its CW partner (see Crazy Ex above). While it’s known for transcending its telenovela homage-ing roots, this week Jane searches for a kidnapped Rogelio, so infer what you will.
- Children are indeed our future (kinda no denying that) and they are also the focus of tonight’s NCIS: Los Angeles as the crew attempts to save exploited kids.
- A priest seeks out the help of Lucifer and while the FOX program has had its ups and downs, that sounds promising and again, hard to not give multiple chances to a show starring Satan played by Miranda‘s affable love interest.
- Watching with our parents! (well, at least the fella writing this l’il feature) Dancing with the Stars returns for a 22nd season on ABC. My money is on Super Bowl MVP Von Miller or magical ex-Boston College and Buffalo Bills QB Doug Flutie as football players have a tendency to rule this roost.
