5 Shows After Dark: Starring Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, and Some Hilariously Terrible Wigs
“Live From Lincoln Center: Kristin Chenoweth: The Dames of Broadway… All of ‘Em!” on PBS at 8:00pm ET. This special focuses on notable women’s roles from an array of Broadway shows. Unfortunately, while I like Kristin Chenoweth in small doses I’m not entirely sold on the idea of her singing a whole bunch of famous Broadway numbers for an evening. She’s got a really distinctive voice and I can easily see it becoming grating if you didn’t have a chorus or other singers to break it up a bit. Still, I’m sure some of you Broadway fans out there will enjoy it.
“Bob’s Burgers” on Fox at 8:30pm ET.
“NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament: Third Round - (7) Illinois vs. (2) Miami, FL” on TNT at 8:40pm ET. As a Cane, I have always found it absurdly endearing that our team is called the Hurricanes, but our mascot is an ibis who is represented by a dude in a duck costume called Sebastian. I guess an anthropomorphic hurricane costume would be more ridiculous, but not by much. Also, I’m pretty sure an actual ibis costume would be wildly impractical to wear to sporting events.
“Phil Spector” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. An original movie written and directed by David Mamet who has apparently made the hilarious statement that this movie is not about Phil Spector. It just happens to be about a guy whose life features all the same events, characters, and hair styles as the actual Phil Spector and who also happens to have the same name. Right.
“The Walking Dead” on AMC at 9:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess thinks it’s great to be a Miami Hurricane.
