What To Watch: 02/14/2019

There’s all sorts of way to celebrate today (or ignore the holiday completely). Our editors seem to believe that today is a good day to solve crimes together.

JASON’S PICK:
The Other Two [Comedy, 10:30p]
Chase Dreams earns a new audience (and progressive points) as he borrows from Cary’s life to create a gay anthem. Meanwhile the other Chase sibling of The Other Two sucks it up and starts her gig as assistant to her teenage idol bro.

FIONA’S PICK:
Brooklyn Nine-Nine [NBC, 9p]
Tonight Jake and Amy team up to try to close a murder case with confusing evidence. What could be more romantic this Valentine’s Day?

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Missing Valentine [ID, 10p]
Nothing gets a single woman going like the 1997 abduction and murder of a woman whose remains weren’t identified for 12 years. Patricia Viola disappeared on February 13; her remains later washed up in the Rockaways (shudder). Was she a witness to the murder of her neighbor, a gem dealer? (Is this like a boring episode of Dateline, and her husband did it?! Or was it a neurological disorder!?)

  • If your idea of a romantic night includes the frenetic energy of Ken Jeong, then you’re a different person than us, but you’re also in luck as Netflix debuts Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho today. On the plus side, he can be a truly funny physical comic sometimes, and this special is directed by Crazy Rich Asians director John M. Chu.
  • Much of the concept behind Design Twins is right there in the name. Interior decorator twins Heidi and Heather created Joyful Living out of one home housing the two of them, their husbands and families. As it’s on UPtv, presumably their faith also enters into it.
  • Even as Broad City finds itself deep inside its final season around the sun on Comedy Central, our two (one fearful, one fearless) leaders are reveling in the minutia of 20-something NYC living, as Ilana hoards a secret and Abbi longs to rise from basic retail employee to window artist.
  • It may seem just another dating show, but keep an eye out for Dating Around on Netflix — the early reviews and buzz are surprisingly strong for any reality show, let alone a dating program. According to Vulture‘s Kathryn VanArendonk, the twist is essentially that there isn’t exactly a twist — a single person goes on five dates and chooses one  it just eschews the gimmicks of most date-oriented television and focuses on the people, without the frequent bias in regards to age, race, orientation.
