Nature: Saving Otter 501 on PBS at 8:00pm ET. This is the story of the 501st attempt to save an orphan otter at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This documentary seems to focus on both the struggle the species is experiencing as well as the journey of this particular otter, as marine biologist Karl Mayer and his staff work to rehabilitate her and release her back into the wild. Warning: you will probably cry.
Burton & Taylor on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. Take two. This time featuring the incredibly lovely Helena Bonham Carter and roguish Dominic West. While I’m sure there will be improvements on the Lindsay Lohan version of the story, I’m wondering if this is one of those relationships that would make a better book than movie. Those sorts of messy, decades long, on-again-off-again relationships are really made for racy novels not 90 minute telefilms.
American Horror Story on FX at 10:00pm ET.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FXX at 10:00pm ET.
South Park on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. I’m still not a huge fan of the show, but after seeing 6 Days to Air I have a tremendous amount of respect for the people behind the show who keep up that kind of maniac pace for years.
Genevieve Burgess thinks anyone playing Burton and Taylor is going to inevitably fail when compared to the real Burton and Taylor train wreck. You can’t fake that kind of crazy.
