Tonight: Competitive Baked Goods, British Style
The Great British Baking Show on PBS at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is known as Bake Off on the UK, and 12 amateur bakers will be competing over a variety of baked goods probably including some things they insist on calling “pudding” even though they are clearly not pudding. This already aired in the UK and I actually remember some of the British Pajibans discussing this on Facebook earlier this year so spoilers are rife for this if you’re interested in that sort of thing. Anyway, one of the hosts is the lovely Sue Perkins from The Supersizers so that’s wonderful also.
The Librarians on TNT at 8:00pm ET.
Nanny Cam on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. Original telefilm. Every time I see a new Lifetime Original Movie I think “Well, now they’re just fucking with us” and then another one comes out and just affirms my previous suspicions. I’m starting to think that the department in charge of thinking these things up is the most fun place to work ever.
The Mentalist on CBS at 9:30pm ET.
The Comeback on HBO at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.
Genevieve Burgess really doesn’t need ideas about more things to bake.
