Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet at 8:00pm ET. Two hour sixth season finale. I’m going to make a wild guess here that they don’t find Bigfoot. I mean, aside from Bigfoot being a fictional creature that there’s no objective proof of anywhere outside those beef jerky commercials, they have to have a seventh season, right?
Poirot on PBS at 9:00pm ET. 12th season premiere.
True Blood on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
Escaping Alaska on TLC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is about young people from Alaska leaving the state for the lower 48. The title makes it sound much more dramatic than it probably is, but I’m not from Alaska so I guess I wouldn’t know. “Escaping” makes it sound like they have to get through a gauntlet of half-frozen bays, polar bears, grizzly bears, and those mosquitos the size of sparrows in order to cross the border into Canada. Which also has all those things. I guess I see why they went the other way with this.
The Leftovers on HBO at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess doubts there will ever be a series called “Escaping Maryland” because you just have to drive a couple hours in basically any direction and you’ve done it.
