Battlebots on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Two hour, second season premiere.
Beauty and the Beast on The CW at 9:00pm ET.
Later with Jools Holland on MTV Live at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season finale. Somehow MTV created a new channel without me noticing. But also, why is Jools Holland still hosting a show about new music? First of all, this is a man rapidly approaching 60 who still can’t spell his own nickname correctly, which should be a big red flag regarding his judgement. Second of all, I always assumed that a side benefit of getting older was getting to not give a shit about fads or chasing “cool.” Everyone just assumes you’re not cool, so you can happily go about your life as you please and when you ARE cool somehow it’s a pleasant surprise.
Queen of the South on USA at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Based on the Telemundo series La Reina del Sur, it’s about a woman ascending the cartel system in the American south. It looks like USA’s new “prestige” drama, so here’s hoping it manages to live up to the hype they’re building.
Thirteen on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This new miniseries follows a woman who’s been held captive by a kidnapper for 13 years. It’s more Room than The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt according to early reviews.
