The Trend of Shameless Pandering to Gen X Continues!
So You Think You Can Dance on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
Behind the Music: Linda Perry on VH1 at 9:00pm ET. Everyone’s favorite Non-Blonde is back with a look into her career preceding a new singing competition series! Because we don’t have enough of those, right guys? But this one will totally be more 90s and alternative-y! Maybe. I don’t know. At this point in our cultural progression, I do my best to ignore all singing reality series because I feel it’s damaging to encourage this kind of thing. Like letting a kid believe in Santa Claus for too long.
Extant on CBS at 9:00pm ET. So after the first episode this is kinda like A.I mixed with Sunshine but less clear. However, Goran Visnjic is looking very good, so I’ll see where they take it.
The Bridge on FX at 10:00pm ET.
Sex in the Wild on PBS at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. PBS is getting saucy with the titles! Don’t get too excited, though, as the series is described as a trip around the world “to study animal reproduction in vivid detail.” But hey, maybe that’s the kind of thing you get excited for. I won’t judge. This first episode covers elephants, but later episodes will feature kangaroos, dolphins, and orangutans.
Genevieve Burgess really doesn’t need to hear about it if you are excited about that PBS show. Keep it private.
