Bones on Fox at 8:00pm ET. I watched the mid-season premiere of this and they had a new Cuban intern who was smart enough to work with Brennan, but not smart enough to figure out that it was a bad idea to ship the prescription drugs he collected to smuggle to Cuba to his work address in a government building, where it was obviously searched, in order to force a plot point. This is the problem with smart people on TV, a lot of the time they don’t actually bother getting smart people to write about them.
Grey’s Anatomy on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Special time. Apparently there’s no Scandal tonight because I guess even crazy needs a break now and then.
Somebody’s Gotta Do It on CNN at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. Mike Rowe is back on TV, even if I keep forgetting he’s on CNN. Mostly because I don’t think of CNN as a network that runs shows, but rather as the network that’s dedicated to constantly showing a talking head with an alarming headline on every office TV in the nation.
The Comedians on FX at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere.
Louie on FX at 10:30pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Hey! Your favorite chubby red-headed misanthrope is back!
Genevieve Burgess knows that most smart people have done stupid things, but are rarely stupid in the way the television wants them to be.
