What’s new on the tube tonight:
The Blacklist (NBC) Fall Finale: Yes, Red and Lizzie are going on holiday vacation already; The Blacklist will return on Feb. 1 of next year (that’s a Sunday) before settling into its new timeslot on Feb. 5 (that’s a Thursday). Confused? This wont help:
Godfather of Pittsburgh (A&E) Series Debut: In August, A&E canceled one of its highest-rated shows, the fantastic drama Longmire, after three seasons because its audience was of the wrong demographic (old). Now, aside from the equally fantastic (and apparently younger-skewing) Bates Motel, all that’s left on A&E is a wasteland of cheap reality programming for morons who can’t find MTV. Meanwhile, AMC has gone the opposite route, dumping almost all of its reality shows in favor of developing new dramas to continue the legacies of Breaking Bad and Mad Men (Longmire would be a good fit, but that’s one for the lawyers). Anyway: Godfather of Pittsburgh is just more of the same reality crap.
