What To Watch: 02/27/2019

There’s a lot of comedy surrounding the chaos in bringing together musical theater (2 out of 3 of our rec’s in fact). There’s also two new shows surrounding the FBI. Time to bring back the Broadway version of Catch Me If You Can?

FIONA’S PICK:
Riverdale [The CW, 8p]
After a few weeks off the gang is back in action. Betty continues to be concerned about her mother’s relationship with “the farm”, Veronica is trying to steer her father away from the drug world (um, good luck with that) and Jughead still doesn’t know the truth about why is mother and little sister are back in town.

JASON’S PICK:
Documentary Now! [IFC, 11p]
Tonight’s installation of Armisen & Hader’s docu-parody anthology takes on one of its odder targets: the somewhat obscure 1970 documentary surrounding the frantic recording of the accompanying album to the latest Sondheim creation, a film called Original Cast Album: Company. In an extra treat this spoof stars this week’s SNL host John Mulaney.

BRAD’S PICK:
Schitt’s Creek [Pop, 10p]
Johnny and Stevie go to the hospitality awards and Moira tried to convince Alexis not to audition for Cabaret. If Moira DOESN’T want to audition for a role she must have her reasons.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • In the first of the two big ticket FBI-themed debuts, Chris Noth returns to lawin’ and orderin’, this time with a G-man badge on WGN America’s Gone.
  • The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan doubles up on series with the just awful looking quirky procedural Whiskey Cavalier — which ABC gave a sneak peek of Sunday night after the Oscars were done being as uber-Oscar as possible.
  • A new Sundance documentary examines the odd life of Tony Alamo, the late Pentacostal Hollywood cult leader. Ministry of Evil: The Twisted Cult of Tony Alamo debuts tonight.
