TV Tonight: The Mentalist, The League, Secretly Pregnant

Posted By on October 13, 2011, 2:53 PM

What’s new tonight:

The Mentalist (CBS) While you weren’t looking (but your mom was), The Mentalist became the new Matlock: a lighthearted crime drama with a charming lead (Simon Baker), ---good-lookin’ cast and just enough dark touches to keep it interesting. And, as Shawn and Gus hysterically point out constantly, it’s a total rip-off of USA’s Psych. Tonight, The Mentalist borrows from its own network lead-in Person of Interest when Patrick Jane (Baker) pulls some future cognition and fingers a perp whom he thinks is going to kill someone. Heh, fingers a perp …

The League (FX) If you thought last week’s season premiere was 12 kinds of sick and wrong, wait till you see tonight’s The League, wherein the gang brings together anti-Semitism, vandalism, Aphex Twin and the inadvertent debut of My Orgy at Andre’s. In other words, more comedy gold.

Secretly Pregnant (Discovery Fit & Health) Series Debut: Read all about it in True TV (Item 2).

Bordertown: Laredo (A&E) Series Debut: Cops patrol the U.S./Mexican in the new reality show that will have to go a long way to top last night’s poignant, immigration-themed South Park, “The Last of the Meheecans.” Good luck, A&E.

Also new tonight:
Charlie’s Angels, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice (ABC); The Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest (CBS); Community, Parks & Recreation, The Office, Whitney, Prime Suspect (NBC); The X Factor (Fox); The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle (The CW); Project Runway (Lifetime); Jersey Shore (MTV); It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (FX)

Still don’t believe Secretly Pregnant is a real show?
