R.I.P. everyone on The 100, probably

Illustration for article titled R.I.P. everyone on The 100, probably

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Wednesday, March 11. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

The 100 (The CW, 9 p.m.): Part two of the season two finale, “Blood Must Have Blood,” is finally here. The episode description continues the vagueness of the description for part one: “Jaha makes a surprising move in the conclusion of the two-part Season 2 finale. Meanwhile, Clarke gets help from an unexpected source; and Lincoln seeks revenge.” But knowing The 100, this most likely means one thing: Everybody dies. It’s been a good run, 100. Sorry everyone has to die. Kyle Fowle will be pouring one out for everyone.

Also noted

Empire (Fox, 9 p.m.): This week, “Hakeem, under the influence of Camilla, hopes to show his father that he’s a true artist and a good businessman.” It’s probably not a good sign when our immediate reaction to Hakeem trying to prove “he’s a true artist and a good businessman” is “ha, good one.” Or maybe it’s the best sign. Up down, up down, drip drop—that’s the Empire way, after all. Joshua Alston just wants to know one thing: Where’s Cookie?

Black-ish (ABC, 9:30 p.m): There’s no new episode of Black-ish tonight, but there is a “Bloopish” episode. That’s Black-ish but with bloopers, you see. As well as a behind-the-scenes tour. In the year 2015, supposedly. If this is somehow the ‘90s again, feel free to watch this clip from the pinnacle of blooper/behind-the-scenes television episodes:

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (FXX, 10 p.m.): You might be wondering from what Frank Reynolds is retiring in an episode titled “Frank Retires.” Well, it looks like Frank has decided to leave the financial decisions up to the gang, and in true Sunny fashion, this probably goes as great as… every single thing they have tried to do in their lives. Dennis Perkins is eternally optimistic, so he doesn’t see the writing on the wall.


Regular coverage

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)

Steven Universe (Cartoon Network, 5 p.m.)

Elsewhere in TV Club

In the latest TV Club 10, Eric Thurm covers Samurai Jack and its status as a tragedy with “fish-out-of-water humor.”


TV Club Classic

Lost (Classic) (1 p.m.): With “The Glass Ballerina” and “Further Instructions,” Myles McNutt’s Classic coverage of Lost season three really gets going: because the latter has the first appearances of Nikki and Paulo, two of Lost’s greatest characters. Myles McNutt, much like Nikki and Paulo, is an unsung hero.


What else is on?

Melissa & Joey (ABC Family, 8 p.m.): Will Joe learn how to be a father? That’s the unanswered question from part one of the season—nay, series—finale, and now it is time for the answer. Also, will Lennox run off to Colombia with her professor? Hopefully that one doesn’t end up being a cliffhanger.


American Idol (Fox, 8 p.m.): The Top 12 finalists are revealed tonight, and that’s a pretty big deal. Hey, want to see American Idol bloopers?

CSI: Cyber (CBS, 10 p.m.): The episode is titled “CMND:\Crash.” You guys: CSI: Cyber is already a national damn treasure. It deserves 16 seasons and then some.


Schitt’s Creek (POP, 10 p.m.): This week on a very special Schitt’s Creek, “David deals with a mysterious health issue.” But it’s not all tears on Schitt’s Creek—there are also laughs. Catherine O’Hara gets to truly shine in this episode as “Moira takes a job as spokesperson for a local winery.”

Hindsight (VH1, 10 p.m.): The first season of Hindsight is over tonight, and no, the season finale is not titled “Do Over.” Instead it’s titled “Auld Lang Syne,” making it now New Year’s Eve in March. The episode description features characters witnessing shocking kisses, as well as experiencing pivotal moments. There’s also an art show. It’s all pretty standard New Year’s Ever/season finale stuff if you ask us.


Misery (Sundance, 7:45 p.m.): This is the perfect movie for the whole family to watch together while you’re DVR-ing Black-ish’s “Bloopish.”

NBA Basketball: Clippers At Thunder (ESPN, 8 p.m.): TV Guide Dude points out that the Thunder “ripped” the Clippers 131-108 at their last meeting on February 8. The more we learn about TV Guide Dude, the more interesting he or she becomes.


NBA Basketball: Magic At Bucks (Fox Sports Network, 8 p.m.): TV Guide Dude doesn’t care about this game at all.

In case you missed it

Kroll Show: Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya’s review calls this “the most absurd episode of the final season.” That’s actually amazing.
