“The Taste” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new cooking competition series where everyone is judged on a blind, single bite taste test. Judges include Pajiba favorites Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson. Bad news is that because this is a two hour premiere, “Don’t Trust the B” and “Happy Endings” have been bumped. And, as Dustin wrote, this means bad things for “Don’t Trust the B” and probably slightly less bad but still not good things for “Happy Endings”. But hey! Nigella Lawson, right? Update: Per James Van Der Beek’s twitter, “Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23” has effectively been cancelled and there’s no indication of when or if they’ll air the remaining episodes. Sad.
“Justified” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
“Parenthood” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season finale.
“Private Practice” on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Series finale. Oh, hey! They’re finally putting this show to bed! You know, four seasons too late (at the least) but I guess better late than limping along for another two or three seasons, right?
“White Collar” on USA at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season winter premiere. Because I constantly think of this show as “That show where Matt Bomer wears nice suits” I tend to confuse it with “Suits” pretty regularly. I’m sure that problem would clear itself up if I watched either of those shows regularly.
Genevieve Burgess is seriously considering hibernating til March. Make that April.
