It Feels Extra Petty to Air the Premiere of 'Downward Dog' Before 'Fargo'

Hollywood Medium on E! at 8:00pm ET. Third season premiere. How much do you think E! is paying these people to do this show and how much more would they have to pay them to just call it Hollywood Emotional Scam Artist and be honest about it? Probably at least double, right? Also, it says that Eva Longoria is in this episode, which feels wrong. She’s making that hair dye commercial money! She doesn’t need to show up in a shady reality series that’s also featuring Jwoww of Jersey Shore!

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on NBC at 9:00pm ET.

Downward Dog on ABC at 9:31pm ET. Series premiere. Via Google: “Martin is the lonely, philosophical type. Martin is also a dog. That doesn’t stop him from making observations on the life of his owner, struggling millennial, Nan, and the complexity of relationships in the 21st century.” This is about where someone should have been shown the door, but miraculously a series was made. And now it’s on TV. And it stars Allison Tolman formerly of Fargo Season 1, who A. really deserves better and B. Is kind of on the cusp of Millennial since she was born in 1981. That’s right on the edge of younger Gen X, but “Millennial” seems to be more of a cultural stereotype than an actual generation designation so whatever.

Archer: Dreamland on FXX at 10:00pm ET.

Fargo on FX at 10:00pm ET. I think I said at the beginning of the season that I was very ready to watch Carrie Coon and Mary Elizabeth Winstead run circles around both version of Ewan McGregor and I’m very happy that seems to be the direction that Noah Hawley is taking things. I did not anticipate that David Thewlis would also get in on the “duping Ewan McGregor” action, but I’m pretty happy that he does. Weird that his scariest performance in not as a werewolf, right?
