Tonight We Play "Let's Pretend We All Like Each Other for An Hour!"
CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock on ABC at 8:00pm ET. I realize it’s just a turn of phrase but I’m enjoying the fact that even a special dedicated to country music is subtly co-opting another genre to sell itself to viewers.
The Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo at 9:00pm ET. Sometimes I wonder how these shows are still going and then I remember the preponderance of jokes about people spying on their neighbors in old TV and movies and I realize we’ve just monetized that instinct. Also, probably a personal problem in that the people who are convinced that they are interesting and worthy of my attention tend to be the people I find the least interesting of all.
Zoo on CBS at 9:00pm ET.
Playing House on USA at 10:00pm ET. Second season premiere.
Hollywood Game Night on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Tonight’s guests are Zachary Levi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Tom Arnold, Rex Lee, Gina Rodriguez, and Curtis Stone. That is one hell of a mixed bag, but I guess that’s half the fun of shows like these.
Genevieve Burgess finds people foist personal details on her with alarming frequency despite giving off no indications that she is interested in them.
