What to Watch: 01/09/2019

It’s a night for the awkwardly romantic (and the romantically awkward) as some modern classics return to remind us good reasons to remain single (or perversely, remain in a relationship). And we think one show is so the best that it took two editors to properly rep it here.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
You’re The Worst [FXX, 10p]
You’re the Worst returns for its final season. Jimmy and Gretchen swear they’ll elope, but only one thing’s for sure: Lindsay is going to punch Gretchen, who probably has it coming. I’m going to miss this show in the worst way when it ends. Despite being about the worst people in LA, I feel very close to Gretchen in all of her ugliness and remain grateful for everything its given us.

NAVANI’S PICK:
You’re The Worst [FXX, 10p]
The beginning of the end is finally here, worsties. Will Gretchen and Jimmy finally tie the knot and live kinda-happily ever after? My guess is not without some major hi-jinx first. Trailers promise champagne and tampons (??) alongside the right amount of flawed narcissism and Sunday Fundays with the crew. Cheers to being perfectly imperfect!

JASON’S PICK:
I’m Sorry [TruTV, 10p]
If you love YTW and have not yet got your fill of awkward, toxic, yet weirdly effective relationships, Andrea Savage’s criminally ignored series also returns tonight.

BRAD’S PICK:
Schooled [ABC, 8:30p]
The new Goldbergs spin off show starts tonight, so instead of ’80s nostalgia we get ’90s nostalgia. Lainey returns to William Penn Academy and has a hard time dealing with her new position of authority. Or as Cartman said back in 98 or so.. respect mah authoritie!

FIONA’S PICK:
Grown-ish [Freeform, 8p]
The gang is back and it’s time for sophomore year! Can Zoey get off social media enough to form a real relationship? Will Zoey’s relationship drama ever end? Now that she’s picked a boy can we focus on some other characters? Looking forward to seeing the whole crew settle into their second year.

  • We’re not sure if it’s canon, but Godzilla: The Planet Eater is an anime entry into the legendary monster’s lore. It debuted in Japanese theaters in November and hits Netflix today.
  • PBS unveils its autocrat anthology series, The Dictator’s Playbook, tonight with a look at the first in the line of three North Korean Kim’s, Kim Il-Sung. Now might be a good time to truly examine how these things come into being, and that’s all we’re gonna say about that.
  • The actor behind Parks & Rec‘s Councilman Jamm and Delocated‘s “Jon” has created another purposefully irritating character for TruTV, and like with the latter, this is an exaggerated version of his real self. On the second season of Jon Glaser Loves Gear, the comic/writer’s real and TV wives face off, among other wacky antics.
