What To Watch: 04/07/2019

Paul Rudd’s 50 and that should have us all feeling vicariously youthful as Mr. Recreation and Re-Creation himself. So, let’s celebrate by watching TV. Hey, it’s Rudd-o-clock somewhere!

JASON’S PICK:
Killing Eve [AMC/BBC America, 8p]
Sandra Oh is having one hell of a year — hosting the Golden Globes and SNL and winning multiple awards for her performance on this critically acclaimed thriller. Now, I don’t normally recommend programs I have yet to check out, but this is registering so high on my “you need to watch this” radar that I feel compelled to remind both you and me that it comes back for season two tonight.

BRAD’S PICK:
A Discovery of Witches [AMC/BBC America, 9p]
The series based on Deborah Harkness’ best selling trilogy comes to AMC tonight. It’s gotten a good buzz during its time streaming on Shudder so chances are pretty good that the show will cast a spell on viewers on a bigger network.

FIONA’S PICK:
Buddy Vs. Duff [Food, 9p]
The Cake Boss and the Ace of Cakes continue in their epic battle to prove once and for all who is the best baker. This week the cake challenge is all about magic. I hope to see some pyrotechnics!

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • Back for a second season on Showtime, The Chi comes from the mind of Lena Waithe, a brilliant writer you may know better as Aziz’ best female friend on Master Of None and tells the tale of four kids navigating the dangers and joys of the South Side of the titular city of Chicago.
  • If you can’t get enough of that decade of excess known as the 1980s, AXS TV is taking you down to the DR for one of the most bizarre (and most hairspray-heavy) festivals, 80s In The Sand, a recreation of the decade with an emphasis on the eclectic music of the era with everything from the hair metal of Poison to the synth-pop of Berlin. It’s every Sunday in April, starting tonight.
  • It’s Yellow Submarine meets Liquid Television meets Wonder Showzen meets [insert any other Adult Swim program here] as Lazor Wulf is the latest off-kilter animation to make its debut on Cartoon Network’s late night brand.
  • The latest from Dick “Elif 4 Redro & Wal” Wolf heads to Oxygen tonight with fresh-from-the-headlines-rip’t tales of hit men and the people who call for them, delivered in True Crime doc form on Murder For Hire.
  • In a similar vein, the third installment of the cold cases of DCI Stuart and DI Khan, aka Unforgotten, debuts on Masterpiece on TLC (no, it’s on PBS of course). This one deals with the case of a teen girl’s washed up remains.
  • If you haven’t come to grips with the dead not walking for this week and many weeks to come, there’s more undead to see (along with voodoo galore) on that Starz show what with the astronaut on a crucifix in its opening credits, American Gods.
  • Over on NBC’s excellent Good Girls, Rio flips the game yet again (that’s kind of his thing — he’s not a very good manager) as hapless Dean learns to live with his life post getting served at his job by boss wife Beth. Meanwhile, Retta Ruby and the world’s most patient husband are unfortunately the latest targets of the FBI probe.
