Boring Doctors are Seriously Underrepresented on TV
Parks and Recreation on NBC at 8:00pm ET. One hour sixth season finale.
American Idol on Fox at 9:00pm ET.
Bad Teacher on CBS at 9:31pm ET. Series premiere. Starring Ari Graynor and Ryan Hansen, as well as Sarah Gilbert, Kristen Davis, and David Allen Grier. The good news is that cast looks pretty excellent. The bad news is that this is adapted from the Cameron Diaz movie of the same name.
Black Box on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new series about a doctor who is absolutely brilliant and also either straight crazy or addicted to drugs. The commercials are pretty vague, they just show her all doctory and then all dancing in the street, writing on her arm, and having sex in hallways so it could go either way. A fun new entry into the “all really smart people are crazy and/or damaged” genre. Starring Kelly Reilly, who may be better known as “the addict lady in Flight” or the movie version of Mary Watson. Also starring Vanessa Redgrave, because I guess she’s bored.
Elementary on CBS at 10:01pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess always thought she was pretty smart, but she’s not crazy in the least so she’s obviously wrong.
