TV Tonight: Eagleheart, Community, Bones, Archer


Looks like the Deseret News finally got around to denouncing MTV’s Skins, drawing yet more attention to a shitty series only a week or so late.--- As usual, has the last word on the “controversy”: Teens Thank the PTC.

What’s new tonight:
Eagleheart (Adult Swim) Series Debut: Chris Elliott is back on TV! Well, cable. Well, Adult Swim—but still! In Eagleheart, Elliott stars as Marshal Chris Monsanto, a lawman who plays by his own rules and delivers justice with as much violent punching, kicking and shooting as possible, warranted or not (mostly not). A more ridiculous take on Walker Texas Ranger? Before Eagleheart, impossible; now, a glorious late-night reality. Welcome back, Chris!

Community (NBC) The study gang plays Dungeons & Dragons—but neglect to invite Pierce (Chevy Chase), with disastrous results. Of course, MTV’s Warren the Ape had the definitive D&D episode last year, but no one saw that because the Parents Television Council didn’t protest it. Have I mentioned lately that the PTC are fucking idiots? Just checking.

Bones (Fox) Big Love Alert: While working on a cornfield murder case (between the murders and the mazes, no good ever comes of cornfields), Bones and Booth run across a trio of polygamous (and maybe guilty) sister wives. Oh please, please, please! let the corpse by Kody Brown.

Archer (FX) Broke Mallory (Jessica Walter) tries to sell the ISIS agency to spy rivals ODIN (headed by Jeffery Tambor). So it’s like an Arrested Development reunion, and that’s not even the funniest part of tonight’s Archer—that would be the mind-control chip subplot. At least that’s what the electrical pulses in by brain are telling me.

Also new tonight:
Wipeout, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice (ABC); The Big Bang Theory, Shit You Shouldn’t Watch, CSI, The Mentalist (CBS); Perfect Couples, The Office, 30 Rock, Parks & Recreation, Outsourced (NBC); American Idol (Fox); The Vampire Diaries, Nikita (The CW); Ace of Cakes (Food Network); Royal Pains, Fairly Legal (USA); Jersey Shore (MTV); Conan (TBS)
