What To Watch: 05/22/2019

Jimmy Kimmel and legendary show creator Norman Lear bring the 1970s back to life with recreations of classic episodes of both All in the Family and The Jeffersons with all-star casts — including Wanda Sykes as Weezy! Meanwhile, our favorite vampire comedy and family drama with new episodes. Two words: bat codpiece!

 

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons” [ABC, 8p]
A “fresh” take on Lear’s classic sitcoms feature Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker and Jaime Foxx as George Jefferson.

FIONA’S PICK:
Jane The Virgin [The CW, 9p]
Jane and Rogelio are teaming up to pitch a pilot! Maybe T.V. writing is a good next step for her? Also, Rafael asks Jane if they can introduce Mateo to Luisa. It seems like she’s finally stable enough, but Jane is still worried about it.

BRAD’S PICK:
What We Do In The Shadows [FX, 10p]
Our favorite Staten Island vampires are hosting the biannual vampire orgy. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that hilarity and hijinks ensue. Come on.. it’s a. Vampire. Orgy.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • The title of The Wrestlers (from Viceland) tells you most of what you need to know about it. Here’s a little more: it’s hosted by Damian Abraham of the awesome Toronto indie/hard rock band Fucked Up and looks in at grapplers from all corners of the Earth.
  • While its premise is by its very nature dark, My Last Days brings a sort of light to its profiles of terminally ill people who have decided to not go gently into the night. It’s on The CW, alongside the show its creator, Justin Baldoni, acts in, Jane The Virgin (see above, if you are reading in an odd order).
  • It’s on Cooking (Channel), it features Mooking (comma, Roger), and its back for its fourth season still with its caveman approved name — it’s Man Fire Food.
  • Let’s end in Korea with Netflix’s latest import One Spring Night. It’s about two individuals walking very slowly (both metaphorically and literally — see the trailer) towards love. From what I’ve seen of Korean dramas, they really better watch out while crossing the street.
