“Second Presidential Debate” on ABC, NBC, Fox, and PBS at 9:00pm ET. I’m currently living in Maryland and one of the benefits that I only notice around election years is that we don’t get bombarded with political ads because we’re not any kind of swing state. There’s a few half-hearted attempts at local political ads, but there’s definitely not the sort of wall to wall coverage that the poor folks in Ohio or Florida end up with. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me, especially when I see some of those ads on “The Daily Show” or wherever.
“Emily Owens, M.D” on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I’ve seen this promoted recently, and it stars Mamie Gummer who is the daughter of Meryl Streep and the owner of my current pick for least appealing name in entertainment. Anyway, the brief description is all about how real life is just like high school because our titular Dr.Owens ends up working with her “high school nemesis” and “med school crush” so it sounds sort of awful and petty. I could be wrong, though.
“Chopped” on Food Network at 10:00pm ET. So, question that occurs to me anytime they get really weird ingredients: do the judges get a heads up about what they’re expected to eat or are they walking in cold? Because if it’s the second they’re almost braver than the contestants.
“Covert Affairs” on USA at 10:00pm ET. Third season fall premiere.
“Sons of Anarchy” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.
