Mental Samurai on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new gameshow hosted by Rob Lowe where contestants answer questions “in the categories of knowledge, memory, puzzles and sequencing” but are also “being physically transported around the set at high speeds in a specially designed capsule capable of rotating 360 degrees.” None of this sounds anything like something a samurai would do.
This Is Us on NBC at 9:00pm ET.
Boomerang on BET at 10:00pm ET.
Tosh.0 on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. 11th season premiere. I genuinely do not know who this show is for anymore.
The Village on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Series premiere. NBC is no longer content with just the emotional manipulation of This Is Us and have decided to launch a new show about a diverse group of people living in a building in New York City who say things like “you were my radical good thing” to each other. If you like characters who speak only in insipid platitudes, this looks right up your ally.
