The Competition for Most Inaccurately Titled Series Goes On
Once Upon a Time on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Fourth season spring premiere.
Downton Abbey on PBS at 9:00pm ET. Two-hour fifth season finale. Time to wrap up this season of Downton Abbey, which means someone else needs to fall in love with Mary and something has to ruin Edith’s happiness post-haste or their entire world might collapse. But there is a Bates falsely accused of murder so at least you can check off that square on Downton Bingo.
The Good Wife on CBS at 9:00pm ET.
The Last Man on Earth on Fox at 9:00pm ET. One hour series premiere. Hey, just a guess, but I’m gonna go ahead and bet that we’re going to find out that the title is a lie in the very first episode. Starring Will Forte as the title character.
Battle Creek on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Remember that time I went on a big rant about the glut of shows featuring brilliant but cranky white guys who are verbally abusive to a lot of people who seem to think that’s a sign of intelligence rather than awful? Well, this new cop series starring Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters is from the creators of House and Breaking Bad. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions regarding the primary characteristics of the main characters.
Genevieve Burgess wonders if Olivia Pope or Mary Crawley have more rich white guys competing over them.
