Tonight, the savvy viewer can choose from the usual Monday array of superheroes and anti-heroes, a new historical thriller, a charming three-woman heist drama we feel You Should Be Watching!, and the first half of Judd Apatow’s four-hour-plus tribute to the legendary Garry Shandling.
The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling [HBO, 8p]
The ultimate comedians’ comedian, the late Garry Shandling rose up through the standup ranks in the 1970s, created one of the most innovative, fourth-wall breaking sitcoms in the 1980s with It’s Garry Shandling Show, had one of HBO’s first great original scripted series with The Larry Sanders Show, and at one time was the heir apparent to Johnny Carson at The Tonight Show. Who better to pay tribute to him in two-part documentary than standup-turned-director Judd Apatow, and where better to air it then HBO, the site of his greatest triumph.
