Sometimes "Painfully True" is Mostly Just Painful
The Girlfriend Experience on Starz at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. I guess one of the (many) advantages of being a pay-cable network is that you can put your sexually explicit shows on early in the evening so all your perv fans can still get a good night’s sleep. I’m joking, of course, reviews have indicated that this is a complex series that features many interesting and intriguing characters and story-telling techniques. But it’s also about Riley Keough playing a prostitute, so I feel confident that the perv contingent will be tuning in also.
Elementary on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Special back-to-back episodes tonight, so make sure you tune in early if you intend to watch live. If you’re watching via DVR or streaming, it obviously doesn’t matter when you watch. As always.
Billions on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. First season finale.
Talking Dead on AMC at 10:00pm ET. I can’t decide if this is a joke, a mistake on the part of the listings site I use, or simply a terrible idea. I guess it could be all three.
Togetherness on HBO at 10:30pm ET. Second season finale. This will also be the series finale since HBO has not renewed for a third season. So here’s hoping they got out most of what they wanted to say by this episode.
