Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, February 25. All times are Eastern.
Bunheads (ABC Family, 9 p.m.): We’re expecting another season of ballerina fun, but ABC Family hasn’t picked this show up yet, which means this could be the last time you see Michelle and the gang. That’s mildly disconcerting! If it is, then don’t you want to watch tonight even more? Erik Adams isn’t sure what he’ll do if his beloved Bunheads are taken from him. He’ll probably just watch and review another show, but not before pouring one out for Ginny, Mel, Sasha, and Boo. Seriously, though. Who names their kid Boo? That’s just weird.
Adventure Time (Cartoon Network, 7:30 p.m.): Finn worries that the Flame Princess may still be evil in a new episode. But, honestly, who hasn’t worried that a friend, roommate, acquaintance, family member, or lover is still evil? Oliver Sava looks at everybody he knows with suspicion and dread on a daily basis.
The Carrie Diaries (The CW, 8 p.m.): We got a screener of this Carrie Diaries Christmas episode, which means it must be good. That, or everybody involved with the show has deluded themselves as to its quality! Carrie Raisler has already seen it and knows which it is, but she’s not telling us. Boo, Carrie!
How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m.): Barney said he destroyed his playbook when he got engaged to Robin, but, c’mon. You’ve been watching this show. You know how television works. Donna Bowman hopes when the playbook comes back out… oh, who’s kidding anyone? They’re getting married!
Regular Show (Cartoon Network, 8 p.m.): It’s the 100th episode of the show, except it’s not really, because the show is aired in half-hour chunks, and produced as such as well. And who’s going to sell a 15-minute show into syndication? Alasdair Wilkins wishes we’d just stop talking about this bullshit.
Switched At Birth (ABC Family, 8 p.m.): We’re just one week away from the episode done entirely in American Sign Language, but before that, we have to clear out a bunch of plots and stuff. So consider tonight’s episode a plot clearinghouse and enjoy all the confusion. Carrie Raisler will be for sure!
The Following (Fox, 9 p.m.): David Sims can’t exactly say he “missed” covering this show last week, but with this week’s episode revealing Joe Carroll’s “ultimate plan,” he’s pre-emptively rolling his eyes. Isn’t Joe Carroll’s ultimate plan just to kill lots of people? There better be something more here, Following!
RuPaul’s Drag Race (Logo, 9 p.m.): Two episodes are listed on this date in our system back-end, and although that’s clearly just a mistake from when the articles were built, it’s left us in a state of confusion. Who will sort out this mess? Only Oliver Sava can save us from trying to review two episodes at once!
TV CLUB CLASSIC
Batman: The Animated Series (1 p.m.): “An army of mutant farm animals terrorize Gotham City.” Holy shit! Did we write this episode? Because that? Sounds super awesome! Oliver Sava, you can ride in on the mutant horse, and everybody else can ride in on a mutant pig. Let’s get this shit done!
WHAT ELSE IS ON
Academy Awards Fashion Wrap (TV Guide Network, 8 p.m.): You can catch up on all the Academy Awards fashion you might have missed, then listen to people tear it apart in catty fashion, if that’s your sort of thing. We thought our Academy Awards fashion, which involved pajama pants, was great.
R U Faster Than A Redneck (Speed, 9 p.m.): For a while, we thought this show was just about people having rednecks race their cars on foot, which would have been a dumb idea for a show, unless rednecks possess super-speed or something. But, no. It’s just another car-racing show. Boo! Hiss!
Mike & Molly (CBS, 9:30 p.m.): It’s been a while since we talked about this show, so we’ll put it in What’s On Tonight, because why not? Tonight, the titular couple has a fight, and then Molly goes to the mall and buys some shoes. Seriously. That’s the TV Guide plot summary for the episode. Shoes. Huh.
Burning Love (E!, 10 p.m.): For whatever reason, E! has picked up the network rights to broadcast this very popular, very funny web series. We don’t care why it’s doing so. We’re just glad that more people will be exposed to this, even if it seems odd to us that those people will be coming across it on E!
Signs (AMC, 8 p.m.): At the time, this alien invasion flick was seen as proof of M. Night Shyamalan’s arrival as the new Spielberg. Now, it just looks like the first step in a long, troubling decline that culminated in whatever his Last Airbender movie was supposed to be. Swing away? Seriously?
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (TCM, 8 p.m.): The Oscars may be over, but TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar will last forever! Or until the 31 days as stated in the title are over! Check out one of the best movies about a detective teaming up with a cartoon rabbit ever made in tonight’s installment in the ongoing series.
NHL Hockey: Stars at Predators (NBC Sports, 8 p.m.): Both teams have records just slightly above .500, and both teams hover around the midpoint of their divisions, so this could turn out to be a mediocre game. Then again: We were just reminded there’s an NHL team in Nashville, so what do we know?
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
The Walking Dead (Sunday): With most shows taking the night off for the Oscars, viewers were pretty much stuck with this, the Showtime shows, and the HBO two. Zack Handlen checks out whatever Andrea’s up to this week and finds it wanting. But who’s into what Andrea’s up to, right?
