The Simpsons leads off a night … Continue reading What To Watch: 09/26/2021

A certain Gervais is back on the podium, so you can bet there’ll be some viral content on the Golden Globes, and not about who won or lost. Also, most of what Fox once called (and may still call) Animation Domination returns for a stab … Continue reading What To Watch: 01/05/2020

One of the most enduring nights of television — including the longest running show in history — returns tonight, and what more is there to say as The Simpsons deals with the big 3-0 with the (alleged) near-death experience of its original iconic character, which leads to … Continue reading What to Watch: 09/30/2018

May’s winding down of television seasons is about to itself wind down, with four long-running Fox comedies saying goodnight for the season (and in one case for its last time on the network), and our editors recommend one of them (but wish no SPECIFIC harm … Continue reading What to Watch: 05/20/2018

It’s time to go back to that Disneyland for Awful People; Westworld is HBO’s latest addition to its Best-Of-All-Time canon and as Anthony Hopkins apparently exits stage right (for now), we welcome a craven new world to the land of androids and sociopaths.

It’s animation dominating this Sunday, including our highlighted top show in the history of manKIIIIIIND! Yes, The Simpsons returns for its record-exploding 28th season, with Mr. Burns at the center. But we also have Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, and the newest addition Son of Zorn.
The Simpsons [FOX, 8p]
In the season 28 premiere Springfield burns, causing Mr. Burns to put on a variety show as part of his repayment. We learned last season that Lisa was meant for the stage, nudge nudge, Fox.
Son of Zorn [Fox, 8:30p]
It’s the first “official” episode of the mixed-medium program, and with Bill Hader voicing our He-Man, and Cheryl Hines and Tim Meadows helming the human side, we should be alright.
Bob’s Burgers [Fox, 7:30p]
This may be the first time we’ve all chosen shows from the same network. In any case, I am a sucker for both a flu storyline and for anything involving Kristin Schaal’s Louise Belcher, and Bob’s Burgers has a combo of both in its seventh season premiere, so it’s golden.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Rounding out the night of animation, it’s the formidable Family Guy, starting its 15th season. We feel no reason to push it, you’ll watch it or you won’t.
- Will Forte pulls double-duty tonight as the animated-in-spirit The Last Man on Earth returns for the beginning of its third season.
- The dead are still walking and we’ll see what comes of Curtis’ observation of Madison’s sign reveal on Fear the Walking Dead.
- And then on Food Network, Vinny & Ma Eat America and we’ll just let that title stand.
