We May Be Reaching Peak Ryan Murphy
The Blacklist on NBC at 8:00pm ET. 100th episode.
Riverdale on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Second season winter premiere.
The X-Files on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Feels weird that this new version of The X-Files is on at 8pm instead of 9pm like the TV gods want it to be, but I guess that just goes even further in proving that it’s not really The X-Files.
American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace on FX at 10:00pm ET. Second season premiere. I feel like this is the culmination of several things that have been burbling around in Ryan Murphy’s head for a while. From the Miami setting it shares with Nip/Tuck to Emma Pillsbury making an Andrew Cunanan reference in Glee! years ago, to just the SPECTACLE of the actual crime itself, which could fit right into American Horror Story, this feels like it will be peak Ryan Murphy. I still don’t know if that’s a good thing, but it will probably be entertaining.
