Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, March 3. All times are Eastern.
Schitt’s Creek (Pop TV, 9 p.m.) and PBS Newshour (PBS, 11 p.m.): If you’ve been paying even a little bit of attention to politics or the state of the world in general, it’s likely that the wait for today’s primary results will be pretty stressful for you. (Have you voted yet?) May we suggest spending some time with the fine people of Schitt’s Creek?
We’re not always able to keep up with this delightful series, but always welcome an excuse to leave this cruel world behind and instead browse the shelves of Rose Apothecary for awhile. That’s what we’ll be doing tonight, when we’re not switching back to the news—and if you’re overwhelmed by too many infographics and wild 3D touchscreen election-o-matic gadgets, might we suggest the PBS Newshour?
Master Distiller (Discovery, 10 p.m., series premiere): The reality TV machine has at last arrived where it was always headed: competitive whiskey-making. Well, whiskey, and gin, and vodka, and mezcal—you get the idea. The competition will be judged by Mark, Digger, and Tim of Discovery’s Moonshiners. Maybe pour yourself a dram of something and watch spirits age in real time?
