Tonight’s schedule is mostly either silly or deadly serious — with Blackish somewhere in between, so let’s get started:
Underground [WGNA, 10p]
This is the little show that could. Just officially renewed for a second season this historical drama continues the story of a group of slaves who escape their plantation and make their way north via the underground railroad. It’s just so poignantly researched and the characters are so well developed that the intricate nuances of all the types of relationships involved will keep you emotionally attached and on the edge of your seat. In this ep the runners are surrounded and their only move may be a suicidal one.
The Middle [ABC, 8p]
First off, the episode’s title is “The Lenai.” Next, the action involves a patio (well, see title) and a food truck run by Axl and his college buddies. In.
Murder U [Investigation Discovery, 9p]
A debate team is “ripped asunder” after a member is murdered.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- If you like your deception and intrigue in cutthroat spy form, it’s The Americans night on FX.
- If you go for deception and intrigue in hip-hop label mates and honchos form, it’s Empire night on FOX.
- Did you know The Goldbergs takes place in the 80s? Tonight, ABC crews go behind-the-scenes to see just how they make it so gnarlily 80s. Followed by Dre Johnson worried about losing his job — and with it, his idealized TV family — on Blackish.
