The Detour on TBS at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new series from Samantha Bee and Jason Jones who are going to be TBS’s first power couple. It’s a sitcom about a family vacation road trip. The talent behind it sounds promising. It’s also got that lady from Justified in it that some of you like. Not her, the other one.
The Magicians on SyFy at 9:00pm ET. First season finale.
Gay for Play Game Show Starring RuPaul on Logo at 10:00pm ET. One hour series premiere. That is a whole lot of title for one show, and the episode title indicates that there are 8 guests, which seems like a lot. But I’m not 100% certain of the format for this, so it’ll probably all work out. I should trust in Ru.
The Hunters on SyFy at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is based on a novel called Alien Hunters and is about a special law enforcement unit who hunt aliens. It looks relatively interchangeable with at least three or four other SyFy series that I already can’t keep straight (two of which may be on USA) so I hope it has a large built-in audience.
Iron & Fire on History at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. New reality series about a blacksmith based in the Ozarks. Looks like about half Duck Dynasty, a quarter Mythbusters and a quarter Big Giant Swords. So, probably better off seeking out specific YouTube clips of the interesting parts and ignoring the broadcast airing, which will inevitably include a lot of terribly staged interactions.
