“Monday Night Football: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins” on ESPN at 7:10pm ET. 44th season premiere. Now that I’m living in the DC area again, I get to experience the incredibly complicated relationship the city has with their NFL team up close and personal. The biggest issue is, of course, whether or not the name of the team should be changed. I’m rooting for “yes” only because the last time I was living here, the Washington Bullets became the Washington Wizards and that was super fun for everyone involved. You know what one of the losing names was? The Seadogs. It can always get worse, people.
“The Million Second Quiz” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. There was a little online version of this and I played a bit. The trivia’s not much harder (and usually easier) than typical bar trivia but the setup of the show seems designed to add a lot of pressure so I guess that’s what’s going on? Hosted by Ryan Seacrest because I know he’s a real crowd-pleaser in these parts.
“Mistresses” on ABC at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. So far I haven’t heard any news about this being renewed, but then again I haven’t really been looking for it.
“Under the Dome” on CBS at 10:00pm ET.
“Monday Night Football: Houston Texans at San Diego Chargers” on ESPN at 10:20pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess would love to hear some alternate names for DC’s football team if you’ve got em.
