Modern Day Inquisition or Fun TV Game Show? Who Can Tell!
Ellen’s Game of Games on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. Ellen DeGeneres, having conquered the daytime TV market, attempts to do the same with primetime TV. As best I can tell from the commercials, this seems to be her inflicting various lightly disguised punishments on the “contestants,” which drives home that having a genial demeanor and fun laugh can really get people to overlook sadistic tendencies until it’s too late. Noted.
Fresh Off the Boat on ABC at 8:30pm ET. Fourth season winter premiere.
LA to Vegas on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is about a budget airline’s regular flight from LA to Vegas (duh), the misfits who staff it, and the passengers who make their lives difficult. Starring Dylan McDermott, and I’d say there’s only a 40% chance he crysturbates in this show.
Kevin (Probably) Saves the World on ABC at 10:00pm ET.
Tesla’s Death Ray: A Murder Declassified on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. I have yet to find any compelling evidence that Tesla’s “death ray” was as exciting or scintillating as the name “death ray” would lead one to believe. However, I may have been misinformed.
