That Workshop Smells of Foam Rubber and Dreams
New Girl on Fox at 9:00pm ET.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox at 9:30pm ET. First season finale. Luckily, this was renewed so no one has to hold their breathe as to whether or not it’ll come back. The same can’t be sad for far too many charming new Fox series, past and present.
The Story of the Jews with Simon Schama: Among Believers on PBS at 9:00pm ET. This is the first two hours of a five-hour series that documents the history of the Jewish people across the globe.
Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge on SyFy at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new competitive reality series (I seriously do need a keyboard shortcut for that) where competitors have to create creatures for film and television shows. Brian Henson is the head of the judging panel. I suspect these creatures are going to be a bit more Star Wars than Muppets, but hopefully they’ll hit all the delightful nooks and crannies of the Henson legacy.
Justified on FX at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess still mourns for the world that might have been had Jim Henson lived a full and healthy life.
