What's new on the tube tonight:

Allegiance (NBC) Series Debut: Decades ago, KGB agent Katya (Hope Davis) was given the mission to seduce and recruit an American businessman (Mark Cohen). Instead, she fell in love with him, and the Kremlin just said, "Go ahead and move to the U.S.; we'll be in touch." Guess who now wants a favor from the couple and their newbie CIA analyst son? Allegiance sounds ripped from today's headlines about The Americans, but there are differences: It's not the '80s, theirs isn't a KGB-arranged sleeper-cell marriage, and Davis can't maintain a Russian accent. Still, it's a solidly acted drama that somehow paints spy drama as dull as family drama and, like everything else NBC cranks out these days that isn't The Blacklist, will probably never be seen again after 13-ish episodes.
