My Take On…NBC’s smart, funny TRIAL & ERROR

Absurdly hilarious and hilariously absurd, that’s the simplest description of NBC’s latest comedy, the true-crime-parody series TRIAL & ERROR that starts tonight with a back to back post-THIS-IS-US (10/9c) preview. Starring John Lithgow as Larry Henderson, a roller-skating, er, roller-cizing poetry professor who maybe murdered his wife, represented in court by Nicholas D’Agosto’s Josh Legal, a “NorthEastern” lawyer from New York trying his first murder in the fictional East Peck, SC, the show provides an inside look at the case in

YOU’RE THE WORST is back….and better than ever!

Stop what you’re doing! You must immediately get to your DVR – or your online DVR manager or your VCR or wherever you record important things – and make sure that your recording of YOU’RE THE WORST is all set and ready to go on their NEW network, FXX, tonight at 10:30/9:30c. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s focus a little bit on why I think you need to be watching!  Created by former TWoP recapper (among other

Monday Must Watch: FX’s ARCHER and CHOZEN

Tonight on FX, catch up with old friend Sterling Archer and new friend rapper Chozen, in an hour of animated comedy that is pretty much not at all politically correct, but all the funnier because of it. Up first (10/9c), ARCHER Season 5 kicks off with the gang at Isis realizing that all of this time, Mallory hasn’t exactly been working FOR the US government.  What follows is a whip-smart and super fast half hour with jokes that come quickly

PSYCH IS BACK….and you’d be a fool to miss it!

Tonight on USA, PSYCH returns for the 8th (and against my hopes and dreams, likely final) season premiere!  Fresh off a season that found Shawn’s secret getting out (to Juliet, no less!) and the Chief on “hiatus” thanks to the awful, awful, awful Anthony Michael Hall, or rather, his character, Harris Trout.  Worst of all, PSYCH is no longer “needed” by the SBPD!

Friday Must Watch: LAST MAN STANDING and THE NEIGHBORS on ABC

Just a quick end of the day update to remind you all to check out tonight’s all new episodes of LAST MAN STANDING and THE NEIGHBORS on ABC. ABC is touting tonight’s LMS as one of the best episodes of the series to date and I have to agree with them – exploring the idea of what friendship is – among the sisters; between Mike/Vanessa and the Larabees (the neighbors Mike kind of sort of pretends to hate); between Kyle

Don’t miss the NEWSREADERS Season Finale Tonight!

NEWSREADERS is one of my favorite shows on TV these days (and that’s saying a lot, considering how much TV I find myself watching – this 10 minute show is in the top 10, for sure).  The season finale airs tonight, and it’s 10 minutes that you do NOT want to miss.  If the fact that the show is hilarious isn’t enough for you, how about some ratings news? As NEWSREADERS’ first season flew by, Thursdays at midnight on [adult

Wednesday Must Watch: PSYCH Returns to USA!!!!

It feels like forever since we’ve been able to spend time with our favorite detectives and fake detectives in Santa Barbara.  When we last left PSYCH, almost a year ago, the fate of series regular Corbin Bernsen’s character Henry (Shawn’s dad for you newbies) was very much left in the air, after being on the wrong side of a shooting gun!  When the show returns tonight with the stellar premiere, a send up of LETHAL WEAPON called “Santa Barbaratown 2,”

Wednesday Must Watch: The return of SOUTHLAND on TNT

After what feels like forever (it hasn’t been – the S4 finale aired March 20, 2012), SOUTHLAND is back on TNT tonight with an episode that perfectly encapsulates what this show does best. It’s dark, gritty, thought-provoking, dangerous, funny, heartwarming, and tragic, all rolled into one. A bit of time has passed since we left our favorite LA cops – everyone has moved forward in life. Cooper’s old partner (the incredible Lucy Liu) is off being a Sergeant (or sober
