Arrow on The CW at 8:00pm ET.
Criminal Minds on CBS at 9:00pm ET. I’ve found this show gets a lot more amusing if you watch Agent Rossi as though he’s Fat Tony from The Simpsons who’s gone so deep into Witness Protection that he somehow came out on the other side.
American Horror Story on FX at 10:00pm ET.
The Game on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Is there a gap in your entertainment life that could be filled by Brian Cox playing a grizzled veteran spy called “Daddy” commanding a group of up and comers with their own secrets? Of course there is. This will fix that.
Kitchen Inferno on Food Network at 10:00pm ET. Live cook off hosted by Curtis Stone. Blah blah. Have I ever told you all my theory that the Food Network and its ilk are directly responsible for the alarming expansion of kitchens in America over the last 15 years or so? Because basically as soon as Food Network started broadcasting, kitchens started getting larger, presumably because everyone saw the big beautiful kitchens the TV chefs have. Except TV chefs have those big, beautiful kitchens because they need to accommodate an entire camera crew with the chef. So now there’s these homes with kitchens the size of my entire apartment and we all get to realize that it kinda sucks to carry a hot pot of pasta 20 feet to a ceramic farm sink when no one’s paying you to do it.
Genevieve Burgess would like 90% of home cooks to admit that they will never need a second oven. Ever. It’s just for bragging rights.
