What To Watch: 01/28/2020

We’re feeling kinda sitcommy over here — including the second season debut from perhaps the quirkiest writer working in the half-hour comedy medium.

JASON’S PICK:
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages [TBS, 10:30p]
Daniel Ratcliffe, Steve Buscemi, and the rest return as new characters in a forgotten time, with creator, and one of today’s greatest writers, Simon Rich, penning tonight’s episode. Not sure if it has anything at all to do with the title or the original concept, but a cool cast’s a cool cast.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
mixed-ish [ABC, 9p]
Rainbow turns 13! And maybe meets her estranged grandmother.

BRAD’S PICK:
The Conners [ABC, 8p]
Harris gets into a good school, but may have a better offer. Becky does not trust Jackie’s new friend who happens to be a restaurant supplier. The Conners continue to be a strong family (and compelling television) in the absence of Rosanne.

  • Netflix combines two of its fortes today (comedy specials and foreign language titles) with Alex Fernández: El Mejor Comediante del Mundo.
  • If you want one last celebration of the life of NBA’er Kobe Bryant, TNT airs a tribute before its national game on the NBA on TNT, which is Celtics/Heat (aka the battle for Jesus Shuttleworth‘s heart).
  • The sixth season of TLC’s groundbreaking I Am Jazz opens with the Jennings family in New York City — unfortunately part of the travel has to do with complications from the titular character’s gender-reassignment surgery.
  • On the other end of the spectrum, the main show of The CW’s Arrowverse, Arrow, finishes up its season, its eighth, with the return of Felicity (not to be confused with The WB’s tentpole Felicity)
