Welcome to Watch List, where we identify five things on TV to watch while you stay at home and are subjected to merciless questioning during your own Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Is it true you smoked weed in college? It IS, isn’t it? YOU ARE A NATIONAL DISGRACE. LET’S GO!
LOUIE – 11:00PM (FX) Oh man, have I been looking forward to this. After a sour experience working on his own HBO sitcom, comic genius Louis CK returns to the form with his own FX comedy.
The reviews are glowing, and why wouldn’t they be? You won’t find a more honest voice in comedy, and CK is keeping even closer to his own personal experiences this time around. He essentially plays himself, and the show is built around interstitial segments of CK doing standup, just like when Seinfeld began its initial run. The result should prove to be one of the funniest comedies on TV. ANTICIPATION: VERY HIGH!
RESCUE ME – 10:00PM (FX) It’s a big premiere night for FX, with CK’s new show debuting late and Denis Leary’s cutting firefighter drama airing an hour beforehand. When last we left Leary’s character, he’d been shot. In tonight’s episode, Tommy has visions of the afterlife. I doubt it will look anything like that really bad Robin Williams flick that had Cuba Gooding in it.
Be on the lookout for Peter Gallagher and Peter Gallagher’s eyebrows in the fourth episode this season. ANTICIPATION: FLAMEY!
CHOPPED – 10:00PM (Food Network) Will you people STOP making French toast? “What I’m gonna do for dessert is I’m gonna make a French to…” STOP. Do not make another piece of French toast. No more French toasts and no more Napoleons. That grumpy Alex Guarnaschelli lady will eat you if you do it again. ANTICIPATION: THEY’LL MAKE FRENCH TOAST ANYWAY!
10 WAYS TO KILL BIN LADEN – 8:00PM (History Channel) I like option number eight: Slowly lower him into a vat of battery acid and rat urine. REAL slow. That would really be my preference. ANTICIPATION: REVENGE PORN!
2010 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS – 8:00PM (Fuse) Miley Cyrus hosts and also performs. Watch as she fells an oak using only her teeth! ANTICIPATION: AGE INAPPROPRIATE GYRATIONS!
