Criminal Minds on CBS at 9:00pm ET. 200th episode. I’m still watching this because even as the plots get more obviously ridiculous and/or recycled I like Dr.Reid, Emily, and Derrick. I also enjoy seeing how orange they can make Joe Mantegna and Thomas Gibson. Gibson always looks pretty pissed off about it, Mantegna seems to be a little more sanguine about the process.
Hoarding: Buried Alive on TLC at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season winter premiere. It may not be our beloved Hoarders but if you’ve fallen into a winter slump and let some of your housekeeping pile up (guilty) then this is the cure for what ails you. Particularly if, like me, your particular derelictions of duty are tied up in dragging your feet on getting old tissue boxes to the recycle bin, or old clothing to the goodwill box. “It’s not so bad” I tell myself as I flip to TLC. An hour, several rooms full of toxic mold and a mountain of used adult diapers later and I’m hopping in my car at midnight with three trash bags full of stuff. Invigorating!
Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond on BBCA at 10:00pm ET.
Top Chef on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. 11th season finale.
Broad City on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess would make a terrible criminal, as she would crack in an instant under the intensity of Thomas Gibson’s glare.
