What To Watch: 01/16/2022

It’s a holiday so there’s not a ton of dazzling new content, but there’s the return of one of the quirkiest shows on television since Man Seeking Woman (unsurprising as it’s from the same writer). It’s also a good day if you like BTS–not the K-pop group, but Behind-the-Scenes content.

JASON’S PICK:
Miracle Workers: End Times [TBS, 10p]
We reach the final chapter of Simon Rich’s totally cray-cray four part anthology about the afterlife featuring a reperatory cast led by Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi. Or maybe it’s not the final chapter and “End Times” is just a name. Either way, we should expect an ungodly amount of absurdity and great guest stars.

BRAD’S PICK:
Icons Unearthed [Vice, 9p]
The Fast and Furious franchise has been one of the most successful IPs of the 21st century. Want to hear never before heard stories about the series? The new season of this VICE series debuts tonight with a look at the fast, furious series of that name. The 10th film hits later this year so now’s the time to learn some behind the scenes gossip. As for me, I am interested in learning more about Tokyo Drift.

BUT, WAIT, THERE’S MORE:

  • It’s a rare flex for prestige from Investigation Discovery as with the multi-part miniseries The Price of Glee, which examines the tragedies that have followed the upbeat musical series. Glee ran from 2009 to 2015 and spawned careers and an insane number of hit cover songs. Sadly, it also seems to have a bit of a curse attached to it as three of the actors died in tragic ways, one by drowning, one by drugs, and one was done in by his own actions.
  • Two CBS shows we rarely cover return and they’re very familiar if you watch AFC football: Bob Hearts Abishola and The Neighborhood. Actually, that last one is watched by at least one scholar. And it has Max Greenberg and we can’t totally hate on anything he’s in.
  • It’s a logical day for TV One’s Urban One Honors, and a good way to celebrate the mission of that great American who we celebrate today.
