TV Tonight: Mad Love, The Chicago Code, Conan


This just in: IFC has renewed Fred Armisen’s hysterical Portlandia for another season. This just in-er: I don’t give a shit about the Grammys, so quit asking me. ---

What’s new tonight:
Mad Love (CBS) Series Debut: First, there was NBC’s Perfect Couples (meh). Then, Fox’s Traffic Light (funny). Now, CBS’s Mad Love—what’s with the rash of couples comedies lately? This one has the advantage of debuting on Valentine’s Day (aww, cute) and a near-perfect cast: Jason Biggs (American Pie), Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Tyler Labine (Reaper—let’s just forget Sons of Tucson) and Judy Greer (the list is endless; currently, Archer). Unfortunately, it’s also on CBS, which means an annoying laugh track and writing that errs on the dumber side of How I Met Your Mother (or the smarter side of Mike & Molly). One couple (Biggs and Chalke) are in love; their respective best friends (Labine and Greer) hate each other; gooey snuggling and salty-sexy bickering ensue. That’s the show. If you’re actually home on Valentine’s Night, it’s probably all you and your cats need.

The Chicago Code (Fox) Viewership didn’t match the hype last week, so watch it harder.

Conan (TBS) The Black Keys are Coco’s musical guests tonight! Yeah, yeah, they won a couple of Grammys—I still love ‘em. And who the fuck are The Arcade Fire, anyway?

Also new tonight:
The Bachelor, Castle (ABC); How I Met Your Mother, Two & a Half Men, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0 (CBS); Chuck, The Cape, Harry’s Law (NBC); House (Fox); 90210, Gossip Girl (The CW); Greek, Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family); Intervention, Heavy (A&E); Tabitha’s Salon Takeover (Bravo); Skins (MTV)

Preview: Mad Love is a good fit with How I Met Your Mother … because it IS How I Met Your Mother.
