2018 American Music Awards on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Three-hour special presentation. Taylor Swift is scheduled to open these, which probably seemed like a safe and non-controversial choice up until literally 48 hours ago. Gotta say if there was ever a time to deliver a clear and unambiguous political message, when your entire public persona has been pretty murky and ambiguous, just before voter registration deadlines start closing is a good time to do it. She’ll be performing “I Did Something Bad,” which does include lines like “If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing/I don’t regret it one bit, ‘cause he had it coming” and “They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one”. Gonna be great!
The Flash on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere.
Black Lightning on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere.
Sorry For Your Loss on Facebook at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. I watched the first episode and it definitely seemed like a very well-made show. But it being on Facebook will never not be weird.
The Purge on SyFy and USA at 10:00pm ET.
