What up, Nerds! I bet youre thinking: “there’s not a new futurama on tonight… what is this Leela business?” Well, Futurama ain’t the only series with a Leela with mysterious origins, there’s also Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi aka Archibald Panjables), who we recently found out used to be Leela, a troubled Toronto(!) girl. Now my extreme boner for The Good Wife aside, there’s some other interesting stuff on the tube tonight, including Shameless’ Ian (Cameron Monaghan) guesting as a murderer on NCIS and Top Chef’s King of the SOB’s Marcel Vigneron’s new Syfy (?) cooking show premieres. Here’ what to check out tonight, Tuesday March 22 2011.
NCIS “Out of the frying pan…” 8:00 on CBS
I adore Shameless. Even Carl. But asides from Emmy Rossum, I’ve never seen any of those kids anywhere else (and lets face it Rossum is almost unrecognizable) so I’ll probably jump at the chance to see Cameron Monaghan, who plays Ian Gallagher – the anti Kurt Hummel – guest stars as a suspect accused of killing his marine father.
The Good Wife “Ham Sandwich” 10:00 on CBS
Leela .. erm I mean Kalinda … goes in front of the grand jury tonight, which just goes to show that even once he’s out of the race Glenn Childs (Titus Welliver) can still screw with people’s lives. He has Carey (Matt Czuchry) take on her prosecution with Geneva (Renee Elise Goldsberry). Also tonight the firm and more specifically, David Lee (Zach Grenier) represent their drug kingpin client, Lamond Bishop (Mike Colter) in his divorce. Scott Porter returns for his final episode (at least for now) tonight!
Series Premiere Alert!
Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen “Walk on the Wild Side” 10:00 on Syfy
This is Syfy’s first foray into foodie territory and I think it might just be a match made in heaven. Anyone who’s seen Marcel on Top Chef knows the kind of narcicist and egomaniac he is – but it’s earned for the most part as he continued to wow week after week. This show is about him catering events but using scientific methods, like gastronomy, to create interesting dishes. If the promo is any indication of the series – I think I’m down to try it, and how cool is the fire table?!?!
The Biggest Loser 8:00 on NBC – Last week my girl Courtney Crozier lost her mom Marci who begged to be voted out even though Kaylee gained 2 pounds. I LOVE COURTNEY.
NCIS:LA 9:00 on CBS – Chris O’Donnell is working… on a hit show… and he’s over 40… Hmmm… I don’t remember seeing pigs fly.
The Game 10:00 on BET – Tasha and Donte (above) deal with his illness by making a bucket list. Damn those cougars and their bucket lists.
Light’s Out 10:00 on FX – This depress-o-rama ends next week. I’m gonna wait to see if it’s renewed or not before I give it my precious time.
Teen Mom 10:00 on MTV – I really hope Janelle and her mom work their shit out.
