Tonight we have another instance of “Monday Night Football” happening on a night that is actually Monday which is comforting. There’s a show premiering on ABC Family that is based around the always entertaining and not at all gimmicky premise of long lost twins, one of whom was in the foster system and one of whom was adopted by wealthy parents who decide to switch places. First of all, who adopts one identical twin and not the other and secondly, unless it’s a delightful romp with Hayley Mills or possibly the adorable child that Lindsay Lohan used to be the whole twins switching places thing is not a great idea. Also, do twins actually ever switch places? Do we have any identical twins here who can let me know? Thanks. Here’s your Monday night TV:
