What to Watch: 03/09/2018

There’s a lot of great scripted shows tonight, yet, under the thrall of March’s madness, Katherine and Jason are obsessed with food. Oh, did I say “March Madness.” It’s that time of year, and we are having our 2nd semi-annual version of that NCAA classic, but with beloved current television shows, so keep an eye peeled for that. Actually don’t–that sounds H.R. Giger-level horrifying–but, um, stay tuned (?). There’s also superheroes celebrating the century mark, the end of Love as we know it, and the return of Peter, that sneaky ex-con on the run.

JASON’S PICK:
Nailed It [Netflix]
The irrepressible Nicole Byer puts her irreverent twist on baking shows (essentially a play on the botched-sweets hashtag/meme), Dream Team-ing up with chocolatier Jacques Torres on her 6-part Netflix series.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
MasterChef Junior [Fox, 8p]
The 24 pint-size home cooks get their first mystery box and must cook using every letter of the alphabet, in order.

MONICA’S PICK:
Love [Netflix]
Alas, another opportunity to hate watch two terrible people who are even more terrible together. You know it’s bad when you find yourself rooting much more so for the other woman. An exception is Claudia O’Doherty as Bertie, she’s kind of a delight to watch.

BRAD’S PICK:
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. [ABC, 9p]
Agents celebrates its 100th episode (woo hoo for syndication). Coulson reveals the deal he made with Ghost Rider.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • Giovanni Ribisi returns to Amazon Prime as the titular Sneaky Pete, the ex-com who continues to run from mysterious forces.
  • Over on The CW’s Jane the Virgin [Ed.’s Note: Monica’s other pick], Jane and Rafael come clean about dating each other again. Now that that’s out the way: the will-they-or-wont-they between Petra and Other Jane is killing me. An even better pairing than Anezka and Scott if you ask me.
  • While Too Many Cooks will never allow us to unsee its theme song as a murderous rampage, Dynasty 2.0 returns on a new night on The CW, with an episode featuring the splendiferous title “The Gospel According to Blake Carrington.”
  • A new Netflix 4-part drama from The Hours‘ David Hare, Collateral examines the after-effects of a London shooting and stars Carey Mulligan.
  • Our favorite aggrieved Republican Ana Navarro meets our favorite liberal redneck Trae Crowder, and thankfully the HBO cameras were rolling in Real Time with Bill Maher.
  • And this last one goes out to the Hill family, as Blue Bloods sees Frank trying to decide the new Chief of Transportation.
