What's new on the tube tonight:

Marvel: 75 Years, From Pulp to Pop (ABC) Special: It would have made more sense to schedule this Marvel Comics retrospective before a new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. instead of in place of, but who am I to question the marketing genius of Marvel? "Leaking" that Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer was ridiculously brilliant, after all. Anyway: 75 Years, From Pulp to Pop squeezes a surprising amount of Marvel history into an hour, documenting the good times, the bad times, and the current Galactic Entertainment Domination times, though the genius of Howard the Duck (the '70s comic book, not the '80s movie) will never receive enough recognition to satisfy me.

Selfie (ABC) Back-to-Back New Episodes: Since Manhattan Love Story ('member that?) has been canceled, ABC is attempting to assuage fan fears that Selfie is next—running two episodes is a good thing, right? Nope: They'll just burn through 'em quicker to make room for whatever they have in the can. Selfie is dead, so enjoy the antics of Karen Gillan and John Cho while you can.
