When Your Fun Nostalgia Game Show Looks Like a Terrifying David Lynch Fever Dream, You've Done Something Wrong
Sunday Night Football: Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots on NBC at 8:30pm ET. 31st season premiere. Special night. If you have not read the Deadspin’s “Why Your Team Sucks” about The Patriots yet, I suggest you go do that right now in preparation for the game. If you already hate the Patriots it will just affirm you. If you like the Patriots it will remind you that you and your garbage team are hopelessly spoiled.
Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E at 8:55pm. Is this coming on five minutes before the hour as a part of a Scientology plot to make everyone miss the first five minutes? Probably not, but I’m going to try and get that rumor started.
Battle of the Network Stars on ABC at 9:00pm ET. First season finale.
The Gong Show on ABC at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. I’m still not sure why a modern version of this needed to exist and I’m especially not sure why Mike Myers had to wear a terrifying mask to host it.
Zoo on CBS at 10:00pm ET.
