Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, March 8th. All times are Eastern.
The Good Wife (CBS, 9 p.m.): Despite Jon Stewart and friends putting on a live show, The Good Wife still makes too convincing a case for being Top Pick: much of tonight’s episode takes place inside Alicia Florrick’s head. If the previews are anything to go by, this means a whole lot of sex with a whole lot of men who are too busy researching legal loopholes to take advantage of their country clubs. Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya hopes Alicia’s mind will have her interacting with Kalinda, if only because a fantasy sequence seems like the only way to get those two crazy kids back in the same room. Also, other reasons.
Night Of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together For Autism Education (Comedy Central, 8 p.m.): Jon Stewart hosts the coolest telethon for a great cause, now featuring Amy Schumer, John Oliver, Paul Rudd, Jon Hamm, and whoever isn’t still wrecked from the Saturday Night Live after-party.
Togetherness (HBO, 9:30 p.m.): The first season comes to a close with Alex getting big career news, Michelle traveling to Sacramento, and Brett coming to some capital c Conclusions after a day at the beach with the kids. Watch this space for Gwen Ihnat to deliver some conclusions of her own.
Battle Creek (CBS, 10 p.m.): This is an EDIT to say that Alasdair Wilkins will be covering this series weekly, so please pay him (/Dean Winters/Josh Duhamel) due respect.
Last Man On Earth (Fox, 9:30 p.m.): The series settles into its permanent timeslot just in time for a wedding! Sure, it’s for the last two people on earth, and they hate each other almost as much as they hated being alone, but surely some post-apocalyptic shenanigans will ensue. Caroline Framke never got Phil and Carol’s invitation, but she’s sure it was just an oversight, don’t worry about it, just put her down for the steak. What’s that? There is no steak in this reality and Carol’s making spaghetti and “raisin balls”? Oh sorry, she totally forgot, she has a thing that day. Happy rest of your lives, you two.
The Simpsons (2 p.m.)
What else is on?
Madam Secretary (CBS, 8 p.m.): “Elizabeth travels to Turkey to mend political relaitons after the Turkish government releases a video that could be damaging to the CIA. Back at home, Jason faces expulsion as punishment for punching a bully school.” One of these things seems more important than the other, but we’ve never been a mother and/or Secretary of State, so what do we know!
Once Upon a Time (ABC, 8 p.m.): We tune out for one second and Cruella de Vil and Ursula the Sea Witch team up. This is a cruel world.
Secrets And Lies (ABC, 9 p.m.): Secrets! Lies! Ryan Phillippe! Juliette Lewis! It’s all happening! (We don’t know what’s happening.)
Bar Rescue (Spike, 9 p.m.): Okay, how did it take four seasons for Spike TV’s Bar Rescue to have an episode called, “Bromancing the Stone”?
Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Championship (ESPN, 6 p.m.): We like to joke around here, but we will entertain no jokes about women’s basketball. They’re lazy, and these women are fucking gladiators, so let’s see you make your “lol women” jokes to their faces, shall we?
Pitch Perfect (ABC Family, 6:30 p.m.): As a recovering former beatboxer for an all-female a cappella group, we can never quite be sure how much our biases play into how much we love Pitch Perfect. Still, reliable non-a cappella nerd sources tell us that it holds up. You know what doesn’t hold up, though?
Hitch (ABC Family, 9 p.m)
In case you missed it
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: You’re on the internet, so chances are you’ve heard about Netflix dropping a new comedy from 30 Rock writer/producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock on Friday. You’re also on The A.V. Club, so chances are you’ve already finished the series. Still, Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya is taking it one episode at a time for us, for thirteen days in a row. The things she does for you, we swear.
