TV Tonight: The Good Wife, Sports Show, Braxton & Sinbad

Posted By on April 12, 2011, 11:02 AM

Last night’s relaunch of Law & Order: LA attracted even fewer viewers than it had before—which is impossible, unless people were physically lighting their TVs on fire and tossing them out windows. Tough shit, NBC. ---

What’s new tonight:
The Good Wife (CBS) The election results are in! Will Peter (Chris Noth) win the office of whatever the hell he was running for? Will Alicia (Julianna Margulies) find out about the other other other woman? And that it was Kalinda (Archie Panjabi), who’s apparently only a part-time lesbian? And what does a pissed-off South American dictator have to do with any of this? At least one of these burning questions will be answered tonight. The Good Wife is more complicated than you thought, huh?

Sports Show With Norm MacDonald (Comedy Central) Series Debut: Continuing the plainly-spelled-out-show-title theme of Norm MacDonald: Me Doing Stand-Up, he’s back with a regular Comedy Central gig on Sports Show With Norm MacDonald. As you might gather, it’s a sports show hosted by Norm MacDonald—but, unlike the previous Onion SportsDome, it’ll be about actual sports and events, not fabricated. Paired with The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, this now makes CNN, Fox News and ESPN completely irrelevant.

Braxton Family Values (We) Series Debut: A washout singer (Toni Braxton) you don’t give a fuck about gets a reality show centered around her family, whom you really don’t give a fuck about.

Sinbad: It’s Just Family (We) Series Debut: A washout comedian (Sinbad) you don’t give a fuck about gets a reality show centered around his family, whom you really don’t give a fuck about. What channel is We, anyway?

Also new tonight:
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, Dancing With the Stars, Body of Proof (ABC); NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS); The Biggest Loser, Parenthood (NBC); Traffic Light (Fox); What Not to Wear (TLC); Marcel's Quantum Kitchen (Syfy); The Deadliest Catch (Discovery); Conan (TBS)

Preview: Ah, childhood memories with Sports Show With Norm MacDonald:
