NBC Special: Red Nose Day on NBC at 8:00pm ET. This is a special benefiting the cause of Red Nose Day, which seeks to help bring children out of poverty. Those musical Game of Thrones videos were connected to this, as was that Anna Kendrick as Indiana Jones one. And Nick Cannon his hosting a 24 hour danceathon online until the show starts. Right now, at about midnight the night before, everyone still looks pretty perky. I think tuning in around 7pm should present a significantly different level of energy.
Somebody’s Gotta Do It on CNN at 9:00pm ET.
Wayward Pines on Fox at 9:00pm ET. I didn’t mention the premiere of this last week because there was a lot of other things going on. But this is M. Night Shyamalan’s new series about a mysterious small town in Idaho, based on the book Pines by Blake Crouch. The cast looks pretty good, they’ve got Matt Dillon, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Juliette Lewis, and Melissa Leo. Also Terrence Howard, who is just working for Fox basically full time now that he’s on Empire in the regular season and this in the summer.
Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV at 10:00pm ET. This episode features the group Salt-N-Pepa where the two titular ladies will compete against each other to see who’s better at lip synching. You know, a pale imitation of what they’re actually known for.
Louie on FX at 10:30pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess hopes that the Red Nose Day craft services are stocked up with B12 shots, Red Bull, and industrial strength coffee makers.
