CBS: Doubling Down on Powerful Lady Shows
The Hazing Secret on Lifetime Movie Network at 8:00pm ET. Original telefilm. So from the title I assumed this was going to be a movie about some deadly sorority or fraternity hazing practice and one woman (it’s always a woman on LMN) determined to change it. I was half right, but IT GETS BETTER! because the woman in question witnessed a death but has anterograde amnesia and can only remember the incident in dreams. So she goes to a sorority reunion to try and figure out what happened. Those of you who enjoy truly terrible movies should get your popcorn ready, I’m betting this will be a doozy.
Miss Marple on PBS at 8:00pm ET. Sixth season premiere.
Sunday Night Football: Pittsburgh Steelers at Carolina Panthers on NBC at 8:20pm ET.
Madam Secretary on CBS at 8:30pm ET. Series premiere. A new series starring Téa Leoni as a brand-new Secretary of State after the previous one died under mysterious circumstances which will not at all become some kind of season-long mystery. Just kidding! It totally will.
The Good Wife on CBS at 9:30pm ET. Sixth season premiere.
Genevieve Burgess enjoys that most political dramas make everyone look logical and calculating, rather than petty and narcissistic the way they are in real life.
