Bob’s Burgers on Fox at 7:30pm ET. There are two episodes of Bob’s Burgers on back to back tonight and I know there’s more than a few of you who will want to be aware of that.
NY Prison Break: The Seduction of Joyce Mitchell on Lifetime at 8:00pm ET. Original telefilm. Since Joyce Mitchell herself is in prison, I’m wondering what the legal issues were about getting rights to this. Also, Lifetime has some fantastic turn around, the actual prison break took place less than two years ago, on June 6th, 2015. I’m assuming Lifetime had a team on drafting the script the minute the news broke that a female guard was involved. Well, a white female prison guard anyway, since I don’t see anyone rushing to make a movie out of that case in Baltimore I linked to.
The Leftovers on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
Mary Kills People on Lifetime at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new series starring Caroline Dhavernas as a doctor who assists in euthanasia when she’s not working in the E.R. If you work really hard at it, you can probably choose to see this as an unofficial Hannibal sequel where Alana Bloom has taken on a new career inspired by her former patient. But not really, because it’s on Lifetime.
Silicon Valley on HBO at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere. I’ll be honest, I mostly watch this show idly to keep up with the jokes. The plot careens between nonsensical and flat-out boring to me. But that’s the beauty of having so much TV, no one has to love all of it.
