Looks Like a Disney Series Escaped the Compound

America’s Next Top Model on The CW at 8:00pm ET. 22nd season premiere. I was unaware that this was still limping along. I thought it was determined a while ago that this show has a pretty terrible success rate when it comes to actually creating models, but I guess any reality show exposure is good reality show exposure for a certain subset of people.

Mr.Robinson on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This new show stars Craig Robinson as a musician who has to take a job as a middle school music teacher to make ends meet. Amandla Stenberg plays one of his students. I used to teach a week long music camp for middle schoolers in the summer and if they’ve managed to mine any humor out of what mostly felt like running my head straight into a wall for five solid days then good for them.

The Game on BET at 10:00pm ET. Series finale.

Key & Peele on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET.

Mr.Robot on USA at 10:00pm ET. I’m very behind on this, so this is more a reminder to me that I need to get to work on catching up.

Genevieve Burgess finds middle schoolers to be in a strange zone where they’re not kids anymore but they’re also not quite on the road to being people yet.
