What To Watch: 04/02/2019

Given at one point it seemed as if Tracy Morgan may never talk again, it’s truly remarkable that he even has a second season of any show, let alone one of TV’s hidden treasures (and it doesn’t hurt that superstar and wonderful addition to everything, Tiffany Haddish is his co-star). His tripping in 2010s Brooklyn through the eyes of a confused long term ex-con leads our rec’s for tonight.

 

NAVANI’S PICK:
The Last O.G. [TBS, 10:30p]
So thrilled to see this show come back! Tray takes his dream of being a chef to the next level this season and Shay (Tiffany Haddish) has some business ideas of her own. Also, just realized their names actually rhyme lol. Plus more of Method Man and Cedric the Entertainer make this show a comedy goldmine.

FIONA’S PICK:
Good Trouble [Freeform, 8p]
It’s the start of Jamal’s trial and Malika has her hands full with organizing. Mariana has a difficult decision to make after Angela (in a huge surprise!) gives her the salary information for all the men a Speckulate. If that weren’t enough, it’s also Sumi’s wedding day! Alice needs to decide once and for all what her feelings are for Sumi. It’s going to be an action packed spring finale.

JASON’S PICK:
WWE Smackdown [USA, 8p]
It’s the last episode before America’s 6th biggest sports event, WrestleMania, which makes the episode dramatic. However, it’s here more for this appearance in John Oliver’s deep dive, and my fervent hope that people attending the event heed his cry and show up in force with signs galore to support the wrestlers getting better treatment. Also, Oliver had a good point. Wrestling IS indeed entertaining.

  • He’s the man who likes to point and sell out stadiums (and other things we won’t get into because it just makes us sad). In any case, his standup can be insanely funny and he’s got a new one on Netflix culled from his 2018 tour of the same name — and that name is Kevin Hart: Irresponsible.
  • Bong Appetit is pretty much precisely what it sounds like. Where else would it be but Viceland, and in any case, it’s back to give you the munchies tonight.
  • If the Smackdown leaves you longing for more of the drama, but less of the wrestling, USA’s cutely named reality spin-off Miz & Mrs. returns tonight. The Miz has been in the last four movies in The Marine series, but he came into his
