What’s new on the tube tonight:

Portlandia (IFC) Season Premiere: One of the selling points of Portlandia has always been, if you don’t like one sketch, there’s another coming along in a minute. In Season 5, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are going a different route and spending a whole episode with one pair of characters (tonight’s premiere focused on feminist bookstore owners Toni and Candace; next week’s ep is about Lance and Nina—you know, with Brownstein as the mustached dude and Armisen as the needy girlfriend). Change is good, but this setup is probably going to be stretched thin over 8-10 episodes … though I’d totally watch 30 minutes of frequent guest star Annie Clark (St. Vincent) facing off against Armisen’s gearhead Studio Guy.
