Community on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. There’s two episodes in a row tonight, so make sure to stay put after the first one’s over.
The Taste on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Two hour second season premiere. More reality cooking competitions! Because I need something to get the taste of all those Chopped marathons out of my brain.
The Assets on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. With all the various ads for new shows I’ve seen recently, this one came as a complete surprise so that doesn’t bode well. According to the internet, it’s based on the book Circle of Treason: A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed so they definitely managed to get a snappier title in the transition. Aldrich Ames, to save some of you a trip to Google, compromised the second-largest number of CIA assets to Russia and was convicted in 1994. I am cautiously optimistic, as the premise sounds pretty interesting.
Parenthood on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season winter premiere.
Elementary on CBS at 10:01pm ET. Second season winter premiere.
