This is what a rainy Monday looks like in TV form.
Jimmy Kimmel Live/NBA Finals Game 5 [ABC, 8p]
Kimmel’s not always my favorite, but I do love his rants against Trump and for fixing our healthcare system. He also brings his A-game on certain ABC finales and during the NBA Finals. Following Kimmel’s humor, against all odds, we could have our first ever Canadian basketball champions as soon as tomorrow as the Warriors have proven very destructible. The Toronto Raptors are up 3-1 on Golden State and tip-off for Game 5 is live tomorrow after Kimmel.
Gentleman Jack [HBO, 10p]
The season finale of Gentleman Jack airs tonight. After four weeks of travel from Paris to Copenhagen, Lister flourishes in Danish high society and faces new challenges attending a birthday ball hosted by Queen Marie.
The Daily Show With Trevor Noah [Comedy, 11p]
Trevor Noah and the gang continues to critique the political conundrum we find ourselves in. In times like these all you can do is try to laugh.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- From its image above, Acorn TV’s latest offering, Straight Forward, looks like 1960s The Avengers minus Patrick McNee’s character, a half-updated car, and not much else. It’s literature promises “adrenaline” (but compared to, say, Rosemary & Thyme, that might not be much. Its trailer looks like a toned down Guy Ritchie romp.
