In Which I Suddenly Care About the Sundance Channel
ABC Special: Countdown to the Oscars on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Hey, so remember when, about a month ago, I made a joke about how we were approaching peak red carpet with regards to the Grammy’s coverage? That feels a lot less like a joke and more like a prediction now. I’m like Cassandra over here, only just with sad pop-culture trends.
Community on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
The Red Road on Sundance at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new, six episode crime drama starring my future husband, Jason Momoa. Unfortunately for the Khal, the early reviews have not been great.
Scandal on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Third season spring premiere. I always find it fascinating how few scenes on this show depict any actual politics. Like, at least in Grey’s Anatomy they figured out ways to have surgeons talking about their tawdry sex lives while doing surgery. Going by this show, the only political obligations the President and Vice President have is doing interviews and sometimes going on campaign trips.
Vikings on History at 10:00pm ET. Second season premiere. I have never seen an episode of this, and I still can’t see the promos as anything other than Jax Teller on a ship. The resemblance is remarkable.
Genevieve Burgess won’t be driven mad by her powers, but she probably will be driven to extreme irritation.
