It’s the seventy-fifth anniversary of D-Day and there’s a big hunk of programming around that, including a new HBO doc with never-seen-before footage. However, tonight’s television will hardly live in infamy and we can’t believe we wrote that so let’s just get into our choices. … Continue reading What To Watch: 06/06/2019
We do love our food and drink here at Screen Scholars — heck, that’s why the extra section has a beer reference even though it does not really fit any theme we have here. So we’re all extra excited about the return of one of … Continue reading What To Watch: 05/29/2019
May sweeps, while in the age of heavy streaming not quite the event they used to be, still packs a punch, and today that comes in the form of celebrity chefs and finales of favorite shows — including the beloved, but strangest, comic-book adaptation.
MasterChef Celebrity Family Showdown [Fox, 8p]
Fox’s latest MasterChef iteration premieres tonight, featuring “celebrities” and their families as the home chefs. Tonight starts with the BFFs Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir facing each other in the studio kitchen.
Riverdale [The CW, 8p]
It’s time to learn the secrets of the Gargoyle King! The season finale airs tonight and there are many questions left to be answered. Will Hiram Lodge stay in prison? What is the final fate of the Farm? And we still haven’t really learned how the show will deal with the untimely passing of Luke Perry.
Jane The Virgin [The CW, 9p]
Jane finally realized that she is in love with Raphael and that he is the only one she wants to be with. Too bad Rafael has decided that he can’t trust her. Jane is having a hard time giving him te space he’s asking for.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- About as New to Netflix an import as can be, I Hear You, was acquired from a Chinese concern (tariffs be damned). It tells the love story of two next door neighbors, a violin repairman and an aspirant TV voice actress, who, TWIST, wind up on a reality dating show.
- As our editors are beginning to approach The Headley‘s for number of jobs, we should probably be interested (and horrified) by A&E’s The Employables, which chronicles the job hunts of people who have it a bit harder — tonight’s subjects, James and Jeff, both have vocal tics.
- Just what IS going on in the world of Bravo’s Southern Charm, where apparently one character, Thomas, was not quite charming enough to not get arrested at the end of season five. As the sixth season commences tonight, they deal with the fallout.
- Speaking of characters — the Wahlbergs, Markie, Donnie, and Other — of Wahlburgers come back tonight for a tenth season (that can’t possibly right…nope, says here, it is, hmpf!). A-Rod takes a turn at flipping burgers because he lost a bet. No, really.
Tuesday’s coming, did you bring your coat? Then, before you know it, Tuesday’s gone with the wind. But thankfully, there’s TV. FIONA’S PICK: Good Trouble [Freeform, 8p] Tonight we are diving deeper into the world of Alice. Still not creating enough boundaries, she is … Continue reading What To Watch: 03/05/2019
Whether you want your horror over-the-top, under-the-surface, IRL, or tattooed on your tricep, we’ve got the program for you. JASON’S PICK: I Feel Bad [NBC, 10p] Sarayu Blue gets her sitcom with a boost from Amy Poehler, and judging from its abundance of different promos, clips, … Continue reading What to Watch: 09/19/2018
Ryan Murphy’s (and Brad Falchuk’s) venerable, yet ridiculous frightfest anthology returns, “The Gang,” now Mindy-less, gets back to what it Dennis (ugh, I meant to say “does,” stupid doll that Mac’s definitely having sex with) best, while chefs who are masters do the same. JASON’S … Continue reading What to Watch: 09/12/2018
On a day after a shocking political upset, our vote goes, by a 2:1 ratio, for mystery boxes of cooking over the season (and almost series) finale of TV’s most complicated sci-fi show. BRAD’S PICK: The Expanse [Syfy, 9p] Humanity hangs on the balance of quite … Continue reading What to Watch: 06/27/2018
It’s the triumphant(?) return of Kevin Costner to a small screen he’s never regularly appeared on–but it takes place in the plains states, so he’s not entirely unfamiliar. There’s also a lot of thrillers and reality shows. KATHERINE’S PICK: Yellowstone [Paramount, 9p] Taylor Sheridan, who people … Continue reading What to Watch: 06/20/2018
It’s a bonanza of new reality shows, including a new one from Mr. Yelly Chef, but we’re suggesting his original home, where he’s giving his annual Masterclass. Meanwhile, our editors are also up for some mid-week exploring from the confines of the couch, and one … Continue reading What to Watch: 06/13/2018
On last year’s season penultimate episode of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Peter Riegert’s Artie Goodman opined “you know you’re in a Golden Age of Television when you take a show like The Americans for granted.” Of course, given the tenor of the former show, the statement was given … Continue reading What to Watch: 05/30/2018
