Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, January 25. All times are Eastern.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars (VH1, 8 p.m.): The last season of this Drag Race spin-off was the rare all-star edition of a reality competition that outshone the mothership—though, to be fair, 2016 was an all-around winner for the show. Season three arrives well stocked with queens in search of redemption: Aja, sunk by a poor decision in a season-nine acting challenge; Chi Chi DeVayne, who killed an “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” lip sync, but was told to go anyway; Trixie Mattel, who has her own show that you should also be watching. Our own extra special guest judge Oliver Sava Ruturns to his Rusual seat on the A.V. Club panel to separate the tRue all-stars from the also-rans.
MVP: Most Valuable Performer (CBS, 8 p.m.): It’s the Miss Congeniality prize for Super Bowl LII: a talent show starring the pros of the National Football League. But let’s be clear: There is only one legitimate MVP in our hearts, and it’s the Air Bud spin-off franchise about a hockey-playing, skateboarding, snowboarding chimpanzee. Nothing but respect for our MVP.
