What To Watch: 04/09/2019

It’s a busy little Tuesday of enticing new programs, returning under-the-radar shows, and a new CBS procedural, so ain’t nothing to it, but to do it.

JASON’S PICK:
Fosse/Verdon [FX, 10p]
This tale tells the story of the torrid affair between legendary musical theatre director/choreographer Bob Fosse and star actress Gwen Verdon, and if you’ve seen the famous scene from 1979’s All That Jazz or 1989’s Paula Abdul recreation for the video for “Cold Hearted,” you can imagine the chk-chk-ssss steam heat (sorry!). This mini-series has Oscar winners in both leads, and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hand to boot, so easily worth checking out.

FIONA’S PICK:
The Bold Type [Freeform, 8p]
The Bold Type is back and premiering season three tonight. Season two left off with lots of pressing questions. Did Jane pick Ben or Pinstripe? What’s going to happen with Kat and Adena? Can’t wait to see what Kat, Sutton and Jane get up to this time.

BRAD’S PICK:
You Me Her [AT&T/Audience, 10p]
This quirky award-gathering show comes back for a quiet fourth season on the Audience Network. The Canadian comedy highlights the foibles and shenanigans of having a polygamous relationship in the 21st century. This ain’t Big Love.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • To call The Code NCIS with Marines instead of cadets is to simplify it, but we’re gonna do that anyway. It’s new, it’s on CBS, and its first episode introduces Capt. John “Abe” Abraham (Luke Mitchell) and Capt. Maya Dobbins (Dana Delaney) as they take on the case of a soldier accused of murder in Afghanistan.
  • Given the episode title “Tres Is a Crowd,” you can bet the Mexican Dynasties gang aren’t on the same polyamory trip as the You Me Her tangle above. It’s not just on Bravo, it’s soooo Bravo!
  • Marcus Limonus (aka The Profit) seems like one of the kinder folks among those who yell about being a financially better person, so we’re all for CNBC’s tour of his origin story as Limonus travels to Lebanon in The Profit: My Roots.
