The Most Photogenic Thing on TV Tonight

Glee on Fox at 8:00pm ET. I’m considering watching this again now that they’ve got a firm end-date in mind. I’ve always found the open-ended approach to series that aren’t procedurals ridiculous, particularly with shows set in schools like this one. Obviously people are going to graduate and it seemed like they had absolutely no idea how to handle it, never mind actively changing the ages of several characters from season 1 to keep them around longer. But, they’ve got one season left to go after this, so maybe that will help them focus up a bit.

New Girl on Fox at 9:00pm ET.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox at 9:30pm ET.

Game of Arms on AMC at 10:00pm ET. I love this so much, you guys. Not just that there’s a whole arm-wrestling community out there, BUT that they got their own reality series, AND some poor misguided marketing person clearly wanted to capitalize on Game of Thrones with the title. As though there’s a strong chance that fans of a sprawling fantasy series with a football team’s worth of characters are going to enjoy watching men arm-wrestle competitively. I’m sure some of them do, but I’m not convinced the overlap is significant enough to attempt to build on.

Justified on FX at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess is afraid to watch “Game of Arms” out of fear that they haven’t split the teams into “houses” with “words” instead of mottos.

  • Legally Insignificant

    I think they missed a valuable opportunity to not only get the Game of Thrones fans, but also 1. get any Guide by Voices fans and 2. promote truth in advertising by just naming the show Game of Pricks.

    This is what I always think of when I think arm wrestling

  • Any discussion of arm wrestling must start with discussions of Sly's epically-awful Over the Top.

  • clokker

    Any mention of arm wrestling immediately brings the bar scene from "The Fly" to mind.
    Thus the standard has been set rather high; if I don't see exposed radii & ulnae before the first commercial break, "Game of Arms" and I are dunzo.

  • I always think of the arm wrestling scene in Kinky Boots. There's no bloodshed, but it's an intense scene that may be the turn of the whole movie, now that I think about it.

  • BWeaves

    Don't say "break" when talking about arm wrestling and "The Fly." Urgh! My spine just shivered.

  • Gunnut2600

    You're missing the biggest reason why "Game of Arms" is named that way. Thanks to DVR and other menu devices with modern TVs, people search for shows through their content providers. Most people just type in "Game" and the shows will start popping up. Its cheesy name association.

  • BlackRabbit

    Like the Asylum mockbusters. Clever.
